Love times two

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. 

you haven't felt yet
give them time
they are almost here

Nayyirah Waheed


  1. I'm going to have to go search for Waheed's poetry - I'm hooked. :) I like her pocket of love. It would be a nice reminder to have so I could reach into it each day and give to others and myself, especially when I don't feel like it!

    1. I think it's giving to ourself that is easiest to forget -perhaps the pocket needs two compartments :) Waheed has an instagram where she posts her poetry


    2. Thanks for the link - love her words!

  2. That Two of Cups is very interesting. Seems like the Bird of Paradise is there to help you fill you cups with twinkling magic. Lovely.

    1. Those twinkling stars ✨ are lovely well see what transpires this week :)

    2. My wish is for your week is be fabulous.

  3. I love that you are sharing your Witchlings,the details are too small for me to buy it.
    Many of Haindls majors are fascinating works of art. I have the death card under the glass cover here on my desk, redrawn by an artist friend, totally thought provoking.
