Oracle of the Shapeshifters (Blue Angel 2011).
The story of Beauty and the Beast has been given many an interpretation. Here, the suggestion is one of an unhealthy relationship, or simply one where we need to re-find ourselves.

For me, this card signals Big Boy going back to nursery after the weekend - it's nice to have some more time for me, and especially to sleep. He had a bit of a bad weekend, up at 4am on Saturday and 3.45am on Sunday, a bit snotty and pukey. Today we got a lie-in, by comparison: up at 4.25 *woo hoo*. Let someone else deal with him for a few hours, and I'll love him better when he gets home.
I am grateful for the English national education system, and for the fact that BB enjoys going to school.
