pink rose

Lent, Tuesday, First Week

I have pulled a card inspired by a story in John in which Jesus chases away the people selling sheep, and doves, and the moneychangers in the temple. The question is: What do I want to chase away in my life?

I’ve pulled a vague card from the Victorian Romantic Tarot: Five of Cups. 

                       

The woman on the card focuses on the past. She should turn around and pick up her flowers. It is the inability to move on, that I want to chase away from my life. I feel like moaning Myrtle, angry about everything. She is lovely here by the way.
