Sun and Moon Tarot (U.S. Games, 2010). Although I've had this gorgeous deck since it was published, I've not used it on the blog, except for a spread I designed at the TABI Conference 2010 :) So, about bloomin' time!
For this first draw I pulled the Eight of Swords, titled "interference". I have to say, I considered trimming these titles off in the scanning process, as I don't much like them. Still, sometimes keywords do act as a trigger for something, so I left them on.
Just looking at this card, the song "Puppet On A String" comes to mind (no, I wasn't born when it came out!) In the song, it is love that controls her, though a rather unhealthy, dependent love. What I more often see in this card is being controlled by our ideas, and in this case these are not necessarily even our own ideas, but ones that have been drummed into us (by parents or society), or imposed on us from above.
Today, I still have more filing to do, and there's definitely a feeling that it's something I do because I've been told I must. My Dear One suggested just binning things which I probably will never need and could ask for a copy of. It's so daring I may just do it!
I am grateful for new perspectives.
