The Heart of Dis-Ease, Card 5: Dropped Down

I have pulled the last card from the spread, “The Heart of Dis-Ease: Listening to the Message,” by Christine Jette. The card asks for what unexpected strength and new possibilities open up as a result listening to the message of dis-ease.

The card that came to the table Ten of Swords, the second Ten in this spread. I pulled Ten of Wands to the question which symptoms were a revolving door, which was the feeling of being overburdened, taking on too much. Two Tens, so too much is a theme here.


It is not the easiest card to receive, although it is very pretty version of the Ten of Swords. It means to me the acceptation that I am not superman, that I am not a superhero, able to do what I want. I need to give up and give in it seems. It might be that the symptoms itself make me aware of that, as the logical effect of them. I just drop down melodramatically.

Fairytale Tarot in Driebergen

Last year while we were on holiday I used the Fairytale Tarot. Inspired by this thread and the lovely memories of last year, I am going to use these cards again.

The wonderful scent of apple pie and walnuts enters my noses; this pie is without apples actually , but with mango instead, because we forgot our apples at home. We are at my mothers while she is away and she has a very nice hot air oven. The pie settles us in here. 

On to the pie, I hear coffee making.
