A well-to-do man in a black, fur-lined coat sits at a table with a bowl of some red fruit in front of him. He wears a ring on one finger, and a black hat with a gold brooch at the front. Behind him on a shelf are nine gold cups, lined up in an ellipse.
The fruit in front of him (I think it's tomatoes, though it may be cherries) seems like a colourful delight. Certainly, what many of us wish for is some kind of life-enhancing, different experience, something to bring a bit of colour to our existence. He seems to have all he could desire - what is left?
As for me, all my wishes for today focus on this evening. I am meeting with someone for my project, and hope to be able to make an announcement tomorrow. It's something I've been wanting to do for years, and now I may get my chance. Still, I am reminded of the shadow meaning of this card: be careful what you wish for. I may be biting off quite a bit with this. I believe, though, that I care about this project enough to make it happen, no matter what else comes along.
I am grateful for wishes granted, no matter the costs.
