Regeneration

Today, the Mythical Goddess Tarot presents us with the Mother of Fire, equivalent in most decks to the Queen of Wands, though in last week's Tarot of the Silicon Dawn we saw her as the Queen of Pentacles.

She seems rather more pensive than many depictions of this Queen.  The flame shooting from her forehead reminds me of depictions of the Celtic Goddess Brigid, patron of poets, bards and smiths.  Although above the neck she is pensive, combining the elements of fire and air, below the neck she is a blazing inferno.  All that bodily passion, and yet she still maintains her calm, and is able to channel the energy and enthusiasm into creative projects and thoughts, rather than it dissipating into heat and nothing more.  The title on the card is Regeneration:  it is through her passion, inspired and wisely managed, that she re-creates herself afresh.

I am grateful for the things which inspire me to create and change: tarot cards; others who challenge my set ways of thinking; Big Boy who changes and grows, forcing me to do the same.

  3. Thanks Chloe. Yes, it was nice, but relaxing out of it nicely now.

    I love that kind of vibrant and painterly art.
