Madonna del "Magnificat" (detail)

Sukkot, Deborah

Today Deborah, warrior, prophetess and judge was guest in my virtual sukkah

                         
                            

Deborah belongs to Tiphareth in the Tree of Life, the middle sphere which holds the tree together.  

                          

What does Deborah teach me from under her palm tree? I have received Six of Swords represting her teaching. 

                                     

On this card a mother with children sits on a raft being guided by a ferryman. Six of Swords has played an important role in the weeks that I was ill during May and June. Back then the card represented frightful fears. The card touches on these fears again.

Deborah, wise prophetess, tells me that I am (still) in transition, but that I am heading to smoother waters, guided and protected by the ferryman. It costs him - which is a part of me - power, but I’ll come there eventually.
