Daily Draw Gratitudes Dancer Queen
Equivalent in traditional systems to the Queen of Cups, this lady's connection with water is more than apparent in this version of the card. A female figure stands in a pool of water, with wave-like clouds behind her. She seems to be the source of the water around her: her hands - thumbs touching pointing up, and index fingers touching pointing down - are held in front of her heart, and from them spills water. This makes me think of generosity, a continual flow of emotion. Her hair sways above her like seaweed, and a conch shell decorates her forehead, above a crescent moon symbol. The suggestion I see is that even her head, her mind, is emotionally directed. Spirals cover the visible upper part of her body, green like life. The tableau in which she finds herself is encircled by a bright, swirling starscape - the depths of the void from which all life springs. The card is subtitled the Gift of Truth - her truth is an emotional one. Such truths can also be hard to hear, but less so when spoken from the heart and with empathy.
My gratitudes based on this card are:
I am grateful for the emotional generosity of those around me.
I am thankful for the opportunity to share emotional connection with others.
I am grateful for the many wonders of the universe.
