Animism Tarot (GameCrafter, 2013) is the Two of Pentacles.
A mother kangaroo
lies on the bare ground with her eyes open, while her joey sleeps on
the grass behind her. Above them twines a brown and twisty tree branch,
while in front of her there is a red-stemmed, green-leaved plant.
Although it's not clear, the kangaroo may be lying on a path.
is an interesting yet subtle sense of balance here. The contrast
between wakefulness and sleep, hard ground and soft grass, verdancy and
dryness, adult and child. The mother kangaroo is at the centre of it
all, keeping a watchful eye so things stay in place.
Sunday, today, our main family day. Although I have a little work to
do in the morning, for the most part I'm planning to keep my eyes open
to make sure everyone is happy. Not just Big Boy and my Dear One, but
also my MIL, who's coming to visit.
I am grateful for a peaceful family day after a busy week.
