Well this is not your typical Three of Cups. These gals are not in happy union or celebrating and dancing the day away. Something seems amiss and there is disharmony between the one and the two. The booklet explains this is the The Garden of Hesperides and the tree of the golden apples, which were reputed to give one immortality if eaten, which is guarded by 3 of Atlas' daughters and also a dragon. The snake gives us a feeling of the Garden of Eden. It is a curiosity that stories of old and myth have some similar reference points. What is more curious to me is that the gal that is sitting in the garden has a blanket beneath her; one would think they would have made themselves something to wear before weaving something to sit on?
My sister upset me yesterday and this is just a reminder to let the little sting of her nastiness go and get on with my day. Also I think I will get me some golden apples and make me a nice little fruit compote and enjoy myself in my garden.
