Once Brigid it was too late for Brigid to return home at night. She lodged with a poor woman. The poor woman wanted very much to be a good hostess. She killed her only calf, and broke her weaving loom in pieces to make a fire. When Brigid discovered that this woman had done this, that she had gone to such extremes, she vowed to reward the woman for her generosity. In the morning after Brigid had left, the woman found out that the calf and loom were replaced. (Story from Amber K and Azrael Arynn K. Candlemas: Feast of Flames, Llewellyn, 2003.)
1. The woman of the home where Brigid stays the night offers two things for hospitality that are of great value for her livelihood. The question for the card is: two things of great value that I offer in order to be generous and inviting.
2. What is the result for my life, when I have to miss these things (card 1)
3. The woman and the calf are returned. What if Brigid steps in? How will Brigid reward my generosity? (Read the card positively)
I have read card 3 today: What if Brigid steps in? How will Brigid reward my generosity? (Read the card positively)
I have pulled the World from the Victorian Romantic Tarot.
I think Brigitte steps in and brings me these flowers in the basket, the flowers on card 1 of this spread, Five of Cups, to remind me that I need to bring in something of myself in the conversation, that I should not hold myself back through listening emphatically. In that sense she is helping me with a new and improved meaning of hospitality and generosity.
