Daily Draw: Fairy Tarot Cards, Eight of Spring/Queen Of Winter
The multitasking fairy on the left is trying to manage eight magical dandelions at once. She will need to prioritise the ones to harvest before they blow away.
The Queen of Winter is prepared to release all things that cause more drama than joy in her life. Although she appears to sit in icy solitude there are a surrounding troop of helpers almost invisible to the naked eye. Just as she has hitched her wagon to a star they hang their stars around her.
The frosty assumption that I have and can achieve everything by myself might need to thaw out a little. As might my over prioritisation of the life of the mind.
The Queen's starry sleigh is a brilliant reminder there are more than just words making up the world. Things matter too. Someone put their heart and soul into making that vehicle. Could the page of a book be so beautiful?
Now that is the wisdom of a man, in every instance of his labor, to hitch his wagon to a star, and see his chore done by the gods themselves. That is the way we are strong, by borrowing the might of the elements.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882
