Joie de Vivre Tarot (U.S. Games, 2011) is extremely beautiful, highly whimsical, and rather quirky. Which is to say, I'm really enjoying it :)
Today's card is the Three of Cups. What I notice is that the three characters here each seem to be bringing something to the table, so to speak. The one on the right carries a flute, the one in the middle has cups which overflow, and the one on the left carries baskets of tempting fruit. Music, food, drink and good company - it's a party!
Yet the three friends, as well as offering different things, are also very disparate. One is a rabbit, the other looks mainly human besides the flower fountain that seems to grow from her hair, while the third is a mermaid.
In this card I see a celebration of our dissimilarities, and a willingness to enjoy life in all its variety and colour. A reminder that it can be fun to challenge our ways of being, and to expand our horizons through other people who are different to ourselves.
Today I am going into college and it's true that, although we are all studying the same subject, there is still a world of difference between us all. I hope I can appreciate that multiplicity and allow it to open my perspective and my heart.
I am grateful for all the different people who enrich my life.
