Maroon Tarot (self-published, 2009) when I won the Majors-only (2007) version in a TABI competition. When the full deck came out, I was already sold.
Situation - Four of Wands
Four of Wands has something of the Ten of Wands to it: a figure
carrying a bunch of Wands towards a house. Yet, there are only four
wands - the burden is still a light one - and the house is close by,
rather than away up a long, hard path. The house is small, but it is
illuminated from above: there is joy here, and a good foundation from
which to branch out, seeking additional opportunities without straying
too far from our comfort zone.
Don't - Five of Swords
what a bleak version of this card! A bald, naked figure crouches before
a deep, dark pit. Swords hang over the scene, shrouded in fog. Yet,
there is golden sunlight piercing the clouds to illuminate the figure,
giving hope that they will find their way past this obstacle, beyond
this pit of despair.
Do - Three of Cups
butterfly-winged fairy stands, illuminated by a pale light from behind.
Before her sit two more female figures. They all seem to be on a rock
in the middle of a tumultuous river, with the water dropping over a
cliff in front of them. Though surrounded by wild emotions, they appear
calm and confident: strength in numbers, perhaps.
week ended up being rather focused on my elder son, with various
meetings at school and elsewhere. Still, I did manage to get some work
done, too. In this week's reading, I see the suggestion to acknowledge
what I have done and build on that, rather than focusing on all that
remains undone. As for the Three of Cups, on the one hand I hope to meet with some
friends this week. On the other hand, I have a number of online friends whom I
feel are there for me and who I hope feel supported by me. So, a time
to focus on these networks!
