Four of Feathers and Ten of Cups - Finding Peace of mind

Four of Feather Ten of Cups  Margarete Petersen Tarot
Today’s card is the Four of Feathers (Four of Swords) from the Margarete Petersen Tarot. I love to receive this card from any deck. This card reminds me to quiet down and find some peace of mind. Although I do love almost every other version of The Four of Swords, I must say that this card is rendering its meaning so beautifully. We see a person resting in the darkest shade of blue. He is lying in a protective bubble with a large feather on top.  In the distance, we see hills and mountains. But for now, he doesn’t need to worry about them. For now there are no problems, no questions, no to-do’s no nothing. He only needs to breath and to be. The whole vibe of the card is so soothing. You can almost feel the caress of the soft feather on your skin.
Then I wondered what could help me to find this peace of mind and I got the Ten of Cups: a calm ocean glittering in the sunlight. Breath in and out like the rolling of the waves and realize just how blessed and loved you are.

I hope you all can find some inner stillness today. Even if it is only for just a moment …..

  1. I imagine that feather fanning the person resting - cooling the mind. :) That ocean in the Ten of Cups holds such potential! Every time you use this deck, I can't wait until it comes back up in rotation for my daily draws.

    1. How many weeks will it take before it is this decks turn again. Or maybe you could cheat a bit...?

  2. Your cards make me want to load up the car and head to the beach. It is my soul place on Earth.

    1. Mine too. I wish it wasn't so far from where I live now. In the good old days I used to live perhaps 10 km from the beach

  3. It took Petersen 20 years to paint the deck, yet I've never found a card that feels early or late period.
    Do you have a chance to real face to face? I'm betting you are really good at it.

    1. Yes the art in the whole deck is very consistent. I also love how the Majors are painted in a different style than the Minors.
      Sorry but I don't understand your question

    3. No I don't really. I only read for myself and use tarot as a toolf for self development. I would feel very uncomfortable reading for others

  4. I think we are having similar thoughts today. I managed two guided meditations this morning and now am off to the pool in lieu of the sea :)
