Strokes and Bolts
Daily Draw July 27th, 2012
I had my computer turned off again yesterday as we had thunderstorms and rain, which we badly needed. I feel safe doing a laundry today since we had some rainfall.
That’s two days this week my computer has been off and I really got caught up on my reading, and brushed the dog yesterday, and had a bike ride today. I am still pretty sore but doing bits here and there, mostly cooking and cleaning.
I’m going to have a quick draw with the Tarot of the Celtic Fairies today.
XVI – TOWER
No matter where I go, this comes back. I am wondering if instead of thinking of dire consequences, I should think of old patterns being torn down? Maybe, maybe it’s time for the big change to finally gain momentum?
The figure on this card is Amadan, the “Stroke Lad” who strikes people with unexpected disabilities. God, I hope not. Amadan can be both malevolent and benevolent and enjoys administering the “Fairy Stroke” causing paralysis, crippling, or death. We derived our term “stroke” for cerebral haemorrhage from this folk tale. Amadan means “fool” but his touch can be crippling, so he isn’t a funny fool.
Well, I don’t want to have a stroke, so I shall keep Amadan in mind.
