Joie de Vivre Tarot (U.S. Games, 2011) her second tarot after the well-received Paulina. She also has an oracle deck out soon called Witchlings, which looks rather fun ;)
Today's card is the Seven of Cups. I really like the way that her dress resembles sea-foam, and yet there are bats decorating it, too. Perhaps this says something about the way we perceive the choices offered to us in this card - we can be washed away by the emotions they provoke, or try to see beyond the surface using our intuition as a guide. And what of those choices? From inside flowers five birds poke out their heads, offering a heart, a star, a letter, a cherry and a musical note. Two more flowers contain a snake and a little ant or insect. The woman looks like she's trying to choose between the cherry, the stalk to which is held in her right hand, or the heart towards which she looks and reaches with her left hand. Still, perhaps she should take some more time to consider the other options, too...
For me today, though, I think the message is not to get entranced by the many things on offer, and just keep my focus - I need to work some more on my essay, it's getting urgent that I finish it.
I am grateful for the clarity of knowing what I need to choose.
