Lent, Wednesday, Second Week

How can I arise, take up my mat and walk? This was my question for my card for Wednesday, based on a miricale story about Jesus in John who cures a man who is sick for years. I was too tired to pull a card on Wednesday. So I did it today. My card comes from the Victorian Romantic. It is the Queen of Pentacles.

This a very lush and sensual Queen, except for her hands that I scary. I love her dress and her hair, and how relaxed she is. 

                   

To me rising, taking up my mat and walking is sitting down with the golden pentacle. Taking it easy. Not working in order to prove myself worthy.

Lent, Thursday, Second Week

The question for Thursday is “Who or what calls me to life?” It is inspired by words of Jesus in John saying: “Most assuredly, I tell you, the hour comes, and now is, when the dead will hear the Son of God’s voice; and those who hear will live.” (Obviously our Judgement Card)

I have pulled Eight of Swords from the Transformational Tarot. 

                   

I am lying in an awful place, in an uncomfortable manner, on rocks, or on something that is hard. I really should rise up and walk. It is not healthy to stay in this unfruitful place. Still, there is nothing that calls me. I do not see in the card something that calls me to life. That is the difficulty of the Eight of Swords, it looks if nothing can be done.

I need to do it myself, by realizing that, although I am used to this situation, it is not a good place to be in.
