Daily Draw Gratitudes Three of Wands

The New Mythic Tarot today offers us another card from the Minor Arcana, in particular from the suit of Wands.

In this deck, each suit is associated with a mythological tale from Ancient Greece.  In this case it is the story of Jason and the Argonauts.  This close to the start, we see Jason being offered a crown by King Pelias.  Pelias had usurped the throne of Iolkos from his brother, but an oracle told him he would be defeated by a man wearing only one sandal.  Jason, Pelias' nephew, crossed a river losing a sandal as he came to demand his rightful place from his uncle.  Pelias capitulated quickly, for fear of the prophesy, but told Jason he would need to rescue the Golden Fleece if he wanted to rule in Iolkos.  Thus, despite this apparent initial success, Jason went off on a long and arduous quest.  So, here we have a first sense of completion, but with a long path yet to be travelled requiring energy and inspiration.

Gratitudes based on this card:

I am grateful for what I have achieved so far, and for all that is still left to explore and do.

I am thankful for the support of others.

I am grateful to receive recognition when I deserve it.
