Prairie Tarot for my daily card this week. The first card I've drawn is the Queen of Wands.
This lady is rather more demure than some depictions of the Queen of Wands. Still, I love her cat! I've always felt that a cat is a great familiar for the Queen of Wands - independent, feisty, yet sensual. There's something, as well, about the way the black cat blends into the border - a kind of now-you-see-me-now-you-don't aspect that fits cat temperament very well. I am also intrigued by the big sunflower. The way it dominates the image, pulling my eyes away from the Queen, and yet the fact is that she holds it. So, she's in control of what I notice, distracting me and getting me to look at what she thinks is important.
Today is meant to be another beautiful, sunny day. Like this Queen, I hope to go and sit outside, enjoying the sunshine, with maybe a picnic lunch for the whole family. If BB annoys my Dear One, which sometimes happens when he gets fussy or whiny, I shall try to distract one or other of them ;D
I am grateful for this beautiful Indian summer, especially on the weekend.
