A woman in an elegant evening gown, with a black bodice, cream skirt and matching wrap, stands before a huge, stone wall. Her hair is silver-white, and above her seven shining swords hang in mid-air, Damocles-like. She faces slightly to the left, yet looks off to the right of the card over her left shoulder. Behind her, the shadow she casts is that of a dragon!
To me, this hints at the traditional interpretation of sneakiness, yet there is more to it than that. It can also fit with ideas around working smarter rather than harder, and with doing research. The dragon does what she can to fit in so as to better achieve her aims, or to learn new things.
Well, I'll be seeing beyond the superficial today, with a scan appointment to see the baby inside me. This 32-week scan was recommended because there was some concern at 20 weeks regarding his kidneys. While the obstetrician thinks all is well, I prefer to do the tests to be sure.
I am grateful for the reassurance of technology.
