Another reading with the Mucha Tarot (Lo Scarabeo, 2015) this week.
Now: Two of Pentacles
A woman juggles two Pentacles, while ships struggle through rough seas behind her. What this card adds, besides the gender of its character, is her red turban and her downturned gaze. It speaks to the strength of women balancing different aspects of life, and to how it is best to keep our focus on what we are doing, rather than being distracted by things going on around us.
I can certainly see that juggling in my own life. Balancing family, a day job, and my passions for tarot and magic. And the idea of staying focused is one I’ve been working on. One thing at a time, even if that time is just five minutes squeezed in here and there 🙂
Don’t: Queen of Swords
This is a rather dreamy looking Queen of Swords, bedecked in flowers. Her sword is held at a very strange angle, not only being angled point down, but especially in the position of her hand. I’ll ignore the oddities, and see the advice not to try to overplan things, nor to be sharp in my words to others.
Do: The Magician
Other than the very odd headdress and clothes, this Magician works fairly well. Though I’m not sure about the belt tangled around the Sword on the table. Perhaps it says that although the Magician has all the resources she needs, she may not be able to access them all smoothly…
I like the suggestion to focus on what I want to manifest and work on that, despite the odd hitch (of which there always seem to be some).
Let’s hope I can make some magic happen this week! Wishing you all a balanced week, too 🙂
