Tread lightly

Daily Draw: Shadowscapes Tarot, Page of Pentacles

The Page offers the opportunities for growth and prosperity. It is up to us what we make of the ember she holds - a smouldering coal or a bright rising star. 

At the bottom left of the card there is a sinister looking trio. Did they walk along the viridian path of the dragon's spine and become so absorbed with dreams of possessing material wealth that they turned to stone? 

So how can she avoid a similar fate? 

The owl perched on the slim branch suggests it will be wise to tread lightly along the dragon's back. 

Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly.
Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply.
Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them... 

So throw away your baggage and go forward.
There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet,
trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair.
That’s why you must walk so lightly. 

Aldous Huxley, 


  1. I love the addition of an owl in this card so much.
    And thank you for this beautiful poem

    1. The owl sits nicely alongside the page as a learner I think. Glad you like the poem. :)

  2. Did they walk along the viridian path of the dragon's spine

  3. I am really liking this deck you are using. Might put it on the list of the next deck to add to collection. All that wispy art calls to a place within me.

    1. The first thing I thought of was how well you would do with this deck...

  4. Like holding a match and striking it; it will only burn brightly for a few seconds. The opportunity to do something with that flame can be brief!

  5. And yet when you're young there's all the time in the world:)
