Daily card drawn, and any random thoughts...

03 September 2004 Card: Queen of Cups - I have always been interested in the intensity of expression of this queen's face as she gazes at her "cup," actually a large closed vessel of some sort. There are secrets implied here: mysteries on an emotional or spiritual level, and the burning urge to solve them. I was not surprised to draw this card after a long time spent pondering the unknowns in my emotional life.
05 September 2004 Card: 10 of Swords - I was curious when I drew this card as my day had barely begun. No idea yet whether it has reference to anything in this day, but if I find out it does I'll be reporting on it.

I went to a wedding in the afternoon of a couple I did not know. I saw a few friends there, ate lunch, drank some mead. Nothing in my day reflected the 10 of Swords in any obvious, glaring sort of way. Now if I'd drawn that card for the couple about to be married I'd have been very gloomy indeed about their prospects, but I didn't.
07 September 2004 Card: 3 of Cups - Love is extended outwards from the individual or couple to include family and friends. Celebration ensues. I usually expect some sort of gathering when I see this card. It can be a scheduled gathering of the kind associated with holidays, or an impromptu get-together of people appreciating one another. I had been to the wedding mentioned above two days before, but this day turned out to be quite solitary.
08 September 2004 Card: 4 of Wands- There is strength in numbers -- even small numbers. People working together can accomplish what one alone can not, and besides, doing anything with friends or loved ones is more soul-satisfying than doing it alone. This card represents the social stability inherent in group activities, and also the joy and reward of getting together to celebrate whatever needs celebrating afterwards. After the work of growing the crops and harvesting them comes the reward of enjoying them in the company of your society.

So here I had drawn another card about people getting together, but spent the day as alone as the one before, just getting work done. I usually welcome the chance for a social interruption, but seldom go out of my way to provoke one. Perhaps my reminder to myself here -- by drawing two such similar cards in a row -- is to make the effort more often.
10 September 2004 Card: King of Swords - The King of Swords often shows up in my daily cards to represent a medical professional; for instance I sometimes see it on a day I have an appointment with a doctor or dentist. In readings it seems to symbolize the person with the power to find the truth and cut through the problems -- a job also done by the medical profession when they are functioning on the highest level. He has a strong association with justice, also, and can represent a judge or someone performing the office of a judge. He can be someone with the power of life or death (literally or figuratively) in the situation under discussion. This guy is a powerful ally if he's on your side. When he shows up negatively he can be a powerful enemy.

My day is just getting started and I haven't a clue what -- if anything -- this King's presence on the top of my deck might reveal. More news as (IF) it breaks.
