Daily Draw April 28th, 2013
It’s a bit frazzling to do a home renovation. The worst of it is coming this week when he puts the tile floors down because we have to move the appliances into the living room and all the stuff off the sun porch and not use that area while the cement and tiling and everything sets and cures. This cuts me off from my basement too.
So, I had to take a break from worrying and make some beads for a wedding outfit yesterday. I realized it was bothering me that I hadn’t finished the necklace and earrings for my outfit and time was running out. I felt a lot better for starting that. I can work on it in the living room when the contractor is here.
3 OF BLADES (3 of Swords)
Another refreshingly different card from Jessica Shanahan. I belong to the “No, no, no, not the stabbed heart on the 3 of Swords!” group. I can’t stand it when people follow the conventional Rider-Waite depiction on this card.
Clipped wings or wings torn away from the body or pulling the body, but I was mesmerized by the lower anchor shape being cut, as if the person’s moorings were sliced away. There is also the suggestion of a forked tail there, reminding me of the Devil, and the bitter, obsessive thoughts connected to this card.
It can also be a card of great release and moving somewhere else: you float when the anchor goes. The idea that an experience can be painful yet beneficial is here. Let it go.
Good thoughts for this day.
