Nicoletta Ceccoli Tarot (2014).
Situation - Eight of Pentacles
pretty brunette wears a red face mask and dress. Her slim female body
morphs into a fly's wings, legs and arms. She appears to be trying to
train a smaller bug to do tricks with strawberries. Practice makes
perfect could certainly be her catchphrase, which fits well with
traditional RWS understandings of the Eight of Pentacles.
Don't - Two of Pentacles
doll-like figure with no obvious connection between her head and body
stands in a strange, chequered room. She juggles what appears to be six
balls, a skittle and a button. Although there are eight objects,
rather than two, the traditional message of juggling different things
comes through clear and strong.
Do - Three of Cups
once again the feel is right, even if the numbers are wrong. We see
four mermaids clearly, jumping free of the water. Another three are
suggested by fishtails flapping up from beneath the waters. The feel if
the card is joyful and playful, even if some of the mermaids have quite
serious expressions. Like a school of fish, a group of friends often
For myself, I'm not sure if I'm the trainer or
the bug that's learning. Either way, practice is called for. The risk
of juggling too many things, though, isn't helped by these first two
cards. Should I focus on practising card readings in a forum I've
recently joined, which also gets me to practice my German? Or practice
different techniques for trying to get the baby, now six months old, to
sleep by himself? The last card seems to suggest I focus on the former:
it is more sociable, and perhaps more likely to succeed :)
P.S. This week there will be an extra post on Wednesday, as part of the Autumn Equinox Tarot Blog Hop.
