Yesterday I have pulled the first card, that showed who the big bad wolf was in life. It was the Six of Swords from the Tarot of the Thousand and One Nights. The threat was that the wind would stop blowing and that I was not being able to reach the other side, my destination, being trapped in the middle of the sea. More on that in the entry of yesterday.
The second question in this spread is: “What is the intensity of this threat?” Here it is that I can see if the threat is real or paranoia. I have pulled Two of Pentacles from the same deck as I used yesterday.
To be honest, the threat feels intense, last I dreamt of it again, but the card does not show the threat with the intensity that I feel it. The ‘reality-check’ with this deck shows that the threat is more paranoia than a real threat. On the card a boy sits on a hill playing the flute. Down under is river, a friendly one, the water is not as deep as the ocean on the card that I pulled yesterday. You can easily stand in it; the buffalos show that drinking from the water. And the water can be easily crossed, there are even dry patches, and if a rest is needed than that is possible, there are little islands in the river to rest on. And that dark mountain far away? Hmmm, that bothers me slightly, but I think that is needed for contrast, to show how peaceful it all is in the area nearby.
Reading the card differently, for an attitude regarding the big bad wolf, the card is telling me that if I enjoy myself, play my own music and see things in perspective -the boy is sitting on a hill and has a view over the valley- than the big bad wolf is easily defeated. But there are more cards to come.
