Tarot Tuesday

Today it was Harry's turn to draw a Tarot card to share with everyone.  After much scattering shuffling, he stood on carefully selected his card...

Today's card comes from the beautiful Baroque Bohemian Cats' Tarot by Alex Ukolov and Karen Mahony.  I love the digitally combined imagery of real cats, incredible costumes and European scenery that recreate in a rich and fantastical way the imagery of the original Rider-Waite Tarot.

Todays card is...

Swords are the suit of the mind, of intellect and mental force.  They can also be cards of struggle and conflict, especially within one's self.  This handsome ginger mancat looks utterly spent, so deep in slumber that he doesn't even seem to realize he is laying on top of a d-o-g !  But rest, as we know is restorative, and the Four of Swords is telling us that it may be time to just do that.  Perhaps we have been struggling with outrageous work issues, frustrating time crunches or emotional upheaval.  Maybe the energy of the long summer days (or the dark of the long winter nights for our friends on the other side of the globe) have disturbed our normal rhythms.  Or perhaps we have just simply been burning our candle at both ends.  Whatever it is, it's time to slow down, regain some balance and there is no better way to do that than to give ourselves a little break.  Allow yourself to separate from the struggles, and just treat yourself to well earned break.  Do a little something for yourself that brings you peace.  Meditation, a walk in a quiet place, sitting on the beach watching the seagulls, a glass of lemonade and that good book you've been dying to read... now is the time.  Go deep, let it go, play hookey if you have too, but get in some well earned "you time".

Harry took this cards advice to heart.  After a delicious tuna feast, he headed up to one of his favorite spots, up onto the cat tree, high above the hub-bub below and went off to dreamland.  I'm sure he'll awaken, refreshed and rejuvenated (just about the time we try to crawl into bed for the night... sigh).
