Breathing Blue

From the über-traditional Marseille-style tarot of last week, today we move to an ultra-modern, themed, CGI deck: the Tarot Draconis (Lo Scarabeo, 2013).

As you might expect, most of the cards in this deck feature dragons, and that's certainly true of the Aces!  In this Ace of Cups, a grey-brown dragon tips its head back and lets out a stream of blue fire or ether.

This image doesn't have the feeling of overflowing wateriness so often associated with this card.  Yet, the sense of emotion is still there, in the power of feeling that makes this fearsome creature tip its head back and emit such a forceful stream of blue.  And the purity of that gush of colour also suggests the potential it holds for something new and magical.

Today, I see in this card the recommendation to express my emotions.  Not in the  blurting things out sense, rather in the sense of speaking from the heart.

I am grateful for the encouragement to honour my feelings.


  1. It is funny; my card of the day is encouragement :D
    When you honour your feelings blurting is often not necessary, that happens mostly after bottling things up.

    1. That's a good point, Ellen. I did some straight-talking, and also some from the heart talking with my Dear One, so it was pretty good, even if some of the emotions were difficult :)
