Jolanda Tarot (AGMüller, 2008), I thought of the old Tears for Fears song "Sowing the Seeds of Love", which rather dates me!
This is such a lovely, peaceful Knight of Pentacles. He rides a cart pulled by a bull across a plowed field, scattering stars/pentacles as the goes. He also wears a bull helmet, and holds what looks like an inverted Venus symbol, while right-side-up ones decorate the front of his cart. Above him, three white geese fly off to the left, and some little stone people are walking across the field to the left in front of him.
Plenty of symbolism, both astrological, esoteric, and just plain weird, here again. What I mainly notice is that the Knight is putting in the work to sow his dreams. He knows it'll take some time before the fresh-plowed field starts to sprout, and longer yet for the harvest to ripen. Still, he looks in no hurry, enjoying the task at hand.
I can certainly get with that energy. Yesterday ended up being quite a nice day off, as we took care of Big Boy, did some shopping, went for a walk on the Heath, and played at building crazy cars to race and crash. Not much work got done though! So, I hope to make up for some of that today. After having printed a prototype copy of the Celtic Lenormand deck, I'm eager to do some more readings, focus on the cards, and work on the companion book...
I am grateful that Big Boy seems well enough to go back to school.
