Steele Wizard Tarot (by Pamela Steele) graces my screen this morning, while clouds darken the skies outside.
I absolutely adore this depiction! I don't remember having seen a unicorn on any other Sun card (except of course the Unicorn Tarot). It seems a wonderful symbol for hope, strength, energy, purity of spirit, and forward momentum. Enormous daisies grow in front of the wall that the unicorn flies over, making me think of daisy chains, sunny days in childhood, and innocence. Yet the sun also burns fiery hot behind the unicorn, hinting at both great energy and also the shadow side of this card - an excess of enthusiasm and possible burnout.
Today I shall take to the skies, too, as I have to go to Germany for work. Can't say I bring any child-like enthusiasm to the situation: air travel has become a chore in this age of cheap flights, crowded airports, and ridiculous security measures. Still, I'll meet up with family for dinner tonight, which is a joy.
I am grateful for my family, both near and more distant, both past, present and future, and for the opportunity to spend time with them.
