If looks could...

If looks could kill!  Medusa had that look.  I believe she is the one that this Prince took a look at and now remains as a tribute to be careful who you make angry.  I have given that look many times over the years.  Once upon a time I was proud of the fact that my angry glance could drop a room temperature by ten or fifteen degrees in a second.  Not any more.  I have learned to release my anger, well most of it.  Still it is a good reminder to not let others or events get the best of you.  Our eyes should behold the wonder and beauty of others and the world, not cast glancing blows to hurt and humiliate.

Watchful

Whether Strength or Justice, I cannot relate to this image. 
Just now I was watching a local news station and one of the reporters that does clips of neighborhood events and happenings around town. He reported this morning on a small "New Age" shop and its upcoming "psychic fair" this weekend.  The fact that they reported on something that is not main stream, I thought showed promise, but...the tv morning anchors at the station just laughed if off.  Now Reiki, Runes, Tarot, and Drumming might not be for all, but the anchors were laughing at others expense, and it was obvious.  And yes I think it is a reflection on them.  As reporters they think and report to  their audience and in doing so should remain objective and not laugh at others at their expense.
A reminder that we are being judged by others all the time.

Arrival

Ask and you shall receive. Knock and a door will open.  After we get what we hoped, wanted, and looked for, what's next?  Do we immerse ourselves in the joy of arrival or start to think what's next?  Searching for the next door, looking for opportunities just - out there. 
I really have to concentrate on being in the moment; then the moment becomes the concentration, and then again, I am not in the present,  the here and now.  Seemingly hopeless habit. 
Ah, for a cup of cheer!

Portrait

I am not sure if this Queen of Pentacles ordered a painting of her and her two children, prince and princess or the King, for a remembrance to sit on his kingly desk and remind him of why he works. 
We all have keepsakes that comfort us and remind of us of family, friends, places, and things.  They are part of lives.  When clutter clearing it best to keep some of those treasured trinkets so we have them down to road to remind us as we reflect.  Home, shrine to some of our most treasured memories.

Second look

I am not sure what is going on with all the women this week or so.  The High Priestess, The Queen of Cups, yesterday a Curandera, today a double draw of High Priestesses.  I am listening but the insight or my instincts are not screaming with a message.  Perhaps I just need a circle of friends to be nearby.

Crone

Sometimes the advice we hear is not exactly what we would hope for.  Wise counsel tells what we need to hear not what we want to hear.
Mostly I keep my own counsel, always have.  If a decision has to be made about me, then it should be me to make it.  I have asked for advice and opinions from others and mostly don't get it.  Usually it is me others seek out, hence when I asked for advice I usually get a blank look.  Today I make a couple of choices that will impact my future adventures.  Both good I hope, time will tell.  Lead, follow, or get out of the way.

Head over heels.

I remember as a child climbing trees and then wrapping knees around a branch and hanging upside down.  Was it daring, difficult, or scary?  Did I do it to get a different perspective on the world?  Nah, I did it cause I could, and that was good enough.  Sometimes we evaluate things too much, and definitely give to much validation to what others think.  A lot of times it is good enough to just do it, cause we can.
Now that is a perspective I can get on about.

That is all

That's all I got.  I drew Bindweed/Devil and so I asked and this answer.  What am I hanging onto that has no use or purpose.  Algebra is the answer for today.

Resolutions

New Year's resolutions.  A lot of years I had made a list of things that I wanted to do, complete, conquer, experience, or manage to do over the upcoming year.  Most years the list was identical to the previous year...so much for lists.  I realized that this year I did not even consider drafting 'a list.'  Amazing.  Getting through each year is enough on its own, and definitely worth celebrating.  So here it is the eighth day of January and so far so good with no list, and even better, I won't feel like I failed myself because I didn't get the list accomplished. 
This Queen of Cups asks me what do you want to do? Well mostly I just want to enjoy my days without the worry of what next.

Embrace

Who does not need a hug, an embrace, from time to time?  A week or so back someone went to give me a hug and I tried to withdraw, but no escape.  It got me to thinking of all the times that I have hugged others, whether I was invading their space or not. Since I was injured I don't give as many hugs any more.  One reason is I cannot turn my head and many are much taller than me so if the hugs last more than 1,2,3 I start to get really muffled.  Also since I cannot maneuver as well and my fight switch is damaged, my flight switch kicks on.
I miss them.  We all need to be hugged, held, validated from time to time. I turn to the Light and feel the warmth of the Sun for most of my embraces now.  Thankfully I have that.

Don't prod

Secrets, I have my fair share. No one needs to know all of my all little secrets and peculiarities. Heck, I don't think I remember them all. There are hidden dimensions in us all, secret places we won't even admit to ourselves. Step in the High Priestess, and says "won't you have a look behind the veil?"
Can we let go of the secrets and still know who we are?  Either way, its a place between the rock and a hard place. Pssht on self -discovery; I think it can go on a shelf for awhile and I can just get back to living the dream.

It is a This or That kind of day.

Search your feelings

Obi wan Kenobi's  advice to Luke in Star Wars.  "Luke, search your feelings."  That is a exploration worthy of this Knight.  Though now that I am peering more intently at this Knight of Cups, I think he is a bit haphazard on the feelings he searches.  Not all of them, just the ones that give him a rush.  To know oneself, you got to sort through all the emotional threads that weave and bind us.  I wonder why, some days you wake up and jump to your feet and exclaim "What a day!" and other mornings you have to resort to almost violence to get out of bed as you lament "horrible day-I don't wanna."  What happens during those dream times, rough waves, or smooth sailing?  What emotions does the unconscious navigate through?
