Mirror Mirror on the Wall

My first impression of this card was of Cinderella and her mean, wicked stepmother.  Obviously one is opulently dressed and the other gal is in rags.  This Four of Autumn traditionally is the four of pentacles.  The companion booklet describes as ' A fairy of abundant gifts looks into a mirror but sees only lack.  Her viewpoint of her own situation is skewed by her fear.'

There are days when I look in the mirror and know that I got it all going on, got the world by the tail.  Then the other days I look in the mirror and think, yee gads.  I think that happens to all us from time to time.  There are other times though I look in the mirror and see my Mother, not just the reflection, because with time I look more and more like her, but I see a lot of her fears and worries etched in my face. 
Forget about it.  Today I am the fairest of them all.

  1. Definitely stick with the mirror of gratitude that allows you to acknowledge your resources!

  2. Her clothes are subdued and dirty, but the wings of each character are identical, but carried behind the body, probably very difficult to see. There are so many reasons/excuses to damp down our potential when in truth there is little to hold us back..

    1. I noticed the wings after I read the booklet. Not sure about the hand in her cape. It is her reflection of insecurity, maybe she grabbed some of those loose gold coins from the fallen bag and trying to hide it even from herself. Not really sure, something to think on.
