Daily Draw: Paulina Tarot, Six of Cups
I thought these were flowers at first but actually the mermaid's son is offering her a cup full of stars. The substitution of stars for blooms suggests to me this is a hopeful, moving forward six of cups rather than a nostalgic one. What a gift!
I have a thing about stars. I have star jewellery, bags, shoes, and shirts but don't think I've ever seen the sea and the stars together. That's the real thing and it's going on the list.
Since once I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid on a dolphin's back
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song:
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres,
To hear the sea-maid's music.
