Madonna del "Magnificat" (detail)

Vrouwengilde - Guild of Women

I have pulled Six of Candlesticks (Wands) from the Tarot of Jane Austen to reflect on my day that is now almost past. 

                         

For the biggest part of the day I participated in a meeting about … I do not know how to call this…gatherings or services (as in church) for people that do not go to church, but do walk a spiritual path. There were five of us, all women. Guild of Women is what we call ourselves. We are part of a big project by the Protestant Church about art and faith for people at the edge of the church (us). It was lovely en refreshing, and the ideas kept flowing. The atmosphere on the card, of fast running horses for play, captures the atmosphere of the meeting very well.
