Daily Draw: Witchlings Deck, Love
Named after my favourite flower Peony arrives with a love pocket. To me she looks to be walking on air. The guidebook makes no reference to romantic love instead speaking to my preferred interpretation of inner love and light (including love and care for oneself) connecting with universal love and from there radiating out to others.
Paulina writes that when we open our hearts every moment becomes charged with the breath of love, a breath that transforms negative energies into positive. Such opening may be a challenge. Being unloved is learned behaviour that sediments over time leading to the closing of the heart. Yet I am reminded by Sharon Salzberg's book on Faith this closing is not irreversible.
I also drew 'Love' from the Haindl which is one of the most beautiful Two of Cups I have seen. The peacock appears to ask 'what will you do with your star filled vessels'. Hexagram 1 'the creative' suggests an answer. Love is creative for the world as well as for individuals. Love (as well as bruises) may give us the inspiration to make something of our lives. When we receive this creative power we must use it for good purposes putting energy back into the world.
I'm not sure what this means for the day ahead but will try to keep eyes and heart open.
