A cat looks on smugly as two other figures walk away. Two swords still lie on the floor abandoned, while the cat holds three in his green-gloved hands. He wears an ornate outfit, with a pentacle-decorated flower emblem on his chest and lace at his throat. I love the amazing clouds that roil above, looking almost more like waves. And the land is blue as the sea, shaped like rolling dunes.
With this card, I get a sense of things being topsy-turvy. The cat is smug while the people have to give up their plans; the sky above is more like the sea below; and our footing is uncertain, as we walk a land that is an unnatural colour. This card speaks of how we feel when our plans have gone awry, when our ideas no longer fit our circumstances, and we're not quite sure how we got to where we are.
My day is a little strange - I'll be seeing my therapist, who I normally see on Thursdays. I'll probably be off kilter all week ;) And plans going awry will certainly be a topic of discussion. Not that anything has gone seriously wrong, just a few things that have left me feeling uncertain of where I am. I'm sure that'll resolve in its own time, but for the moment I'm left feeling unsettled. I may also take the time to go shopping for some clothes, long overdue. Could put me in a better frame of mind, depending on whether or not I find some comfy trousers... Retail therapy only works if you find something you want to buy!
I am grateful for the reminder that nothing in life is certain.
