Once again, it’s Blog Hop time :) Whether you’ve found your way here jumping forward from Tierney's amazing blog, going backwards from John's fascinating notions, or some other way, I bid you welcome. And should you want an overview of the Hop, you’ll find the Master List here.
For this Hop, Sharon, our wrangler, talked about faeries, and proposed that we offer up something creative. Given I love creating spreads, I decided to try a spread based on the tales of people being whisked away by faeries to dance the Solstice away, often returning much later than expected. And, given the faery theme, the Fey Tarot (Lo Scarabeo, 2003) seemed the best choice for this reading.
1) What dance will I be lead on over the time from now until First Harvest? The Moon
Seems like I face a time of uncertainty and confusion, dancing to a tune I don’t quite understand. And yet, I love the look on this fey’s face. She seems calm, eyes closed as though listening to the beat of a drum. This may be a crazy dance, but it is one with beauty in it, if I can find some calm to tune into what is happening within and around me.
I see in this that I may feel quite uncertain over the coming weeks, knowing there is something I should be doing, but not quite sure how to do it. What springs to mind is the deadline for the Celtic Lenormand.
I have the images now from Will Worthington, but I still need to edit them, and complete the companion book. Although most of it is now written, it’s often the last few tweaks and corrections that take the longest. There is one part that I still have to finish researching, and I see here a warning to not get lost in confusion about how to finish. If I listen to my inner voice, turning inward rather than trying to apply logic or follow other people’s ideas, I will find the solution I seek.
Now that’s a lovely card for what will come at the end of this dance. It offers a feeling of accomplishment, and a new creation to show to the world. Not yet full size, but complete and ready to continue growing away from my care. That’s definitely my hope for the Celtic Lenormand: that I can hand it over, and then watch as it blossoms in the hands of US Games!
What I see here is a suggestion to refuse to take on fears from other people, to not let other people’s attitudes be the monster that scares me and stops me sleeping or accomplishing what I can. I should refuse to allow worries about other people and their perspectives to daunt me. If I keep my focus on the flame in front of me, the project in hand and my direction with it, then those fears can stay outside, where they belong.
What a nice, restful card to end with! Seems I will gain a sense of completion if I follow this dance to its conclusion, despite the uncertainties along the way. There is also a harvest to be reaped, though it may not come quickly. At the end of this, I will be able to sit back, relax, and wait for the future with the confidence that I have done all I could.
I hope you like this faery-inspired spread, and that you’ll let me know if you try it out. Now, to enjoy more creativity and fun, please hop on over to Johnnie Two Brows.
