That second card was a card that was pulled alongside a Psalm, with a question. It was Psalm 8.
Since everyone pulled a card along this Psalm except me, I pulled one in the train back home from the Tarot of the Thousand and One Night. I had just bought it in Amsterdam the city where my course took place.
Psalm 8 is about how beautiful our world is, and asks the question what we as humans are that God put the earth, the animals and all the growing things in our hands. “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, The moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him?”
The question for the card alongside this Psalm is: “What am I (now), that God is mindful of me?”
I have pulled the Page of Wands as an answer to this question. This card shows a boy who looks down apprehensively on a city below him, hesitating to go there.
I had lots of time in the train on my way back, so I entered the card in order to let it speak for me. The boy wants to go to city, he loves the it, the hassle and bustle, the noises and the scents of cinnamon and jasmine, but he is afraid. The road he needs to take to come there is full of dangers.
So this is me, this boy standing up there, surrounded by beautiful flowers. I have been often to this city below, I took this risk of the road often (just to say I am not a coward), but today what God is mindful of, is my fear for the road. God cares for me and accepts me in my fear. Mmm, in other words it’s is ok to be a coward. Probably that helps a lot, to see and accept that from myself.
