Experimenting

Another beautiful card greets us today from the Wicca Moon Tarot

In this Three of Wands, two wands stand to the left of the card and one to the right.  They all seem to look out from their position in a yellow-and-purple flower-strewn meadow, over an inlet dotted with boats and across to a lighthouse in the distance.  There are also three butterflies flitting around the wands.

These wands seem to be waiting for the results of their actions, as is so often the case with this card.  However, with the way their 'heads' are angled and with the butterflies flying around them, they suggest to me curiosity about the outcome, and the potential for transformation in those results.

By the way, if you've enjoyed these cards, you might consider exploring them some more.  The deck's creator, Shirlee from the Wicca Moon shop, is running a workshop on the cards in November.  Check out her Facebook page for details.

In that curiosity and potential for transformation, I see an experiment we're carrying out with Big Boy today.  Don't worry, it's not a 'rats in a lab' kind of experiment.  He's had some serious problems with flying in the past, but after the tests doctors ran over the summer, their conclusions and our own observations, we're going to give it a go again.  We've got various helping mechanisms in place, and hopefully that'll be enough, as we really want him to be able to connect with family again.  He hasn't seen them for nearly two years now!

I am grateful for analgesics and modern plastics that are flexible and adaptable.

    1. Well, it worked out pretty okay, and he definitely enjoyed being there. Not sure if some of his troubles this week are related to flying or not - it's so hard to tell. Still, on the basis of what we've seen, I think we'd try it again, so that's reasonably successful :)
