Daily Draw Gratitudes Nine of Staffs
It took me a while to spot that there is actually a person on this card! A figure with a blue band around their head peeks out from behind the central tree, with a unicorn to their right. Strange plants grow up all about, some with small red fruit. So, for me, there is more a sense of hiding than of defensiveness per se, though of course the two are related. They could be hiding as a form of defense. Less belligerent than traditional depictions, the unicorn adds a softer side, also, suggesting spiritual protection and joy.
My gratitudes for this card:
I am grateful for the ability to show only as much of myself as feels safe.
I am thankful for the feeling that I am protected by kind beings.
