Calm focus

Daily Draw: The Llewellyn Tarot: Two of Wands

This two of wands is quite different from the Llewellyn Classic version I draw a little while back. The woman's posture (seated and eyes on the orb) here appears less expansionist and more calm and meditative. Her beautiful bodice in Gaugiunesque colours suggests to me she is a creative type. 

Perhaps she can use her artistic skills together with intuition to search out new possibilities and hidden options. The gold and rose sky hint that she will experience enrichment beyond monetary gain if she can remain centred and focused while continuing her practice. 

if the ocean 
can calm itself
so can you
we 
are both
salt water
mixed
with 
air

  1. Glad to see you blogging again! :) I am so happy that you introduced me to Waheed's poetry; I love her raw simplicity. One of the wands (left) looks broken. No wonder she is consulting the crystal ball (intuition) about what to do next. At least she is taking the time to consider her options rather than jumping into the water with no forethought.

    1. I am so glad you have shared Waheed's poetry. I think it is time to make a purchase. A book of poetry; what a great gift to give oneself or others as well. Thank you again for sharing.
