October 19: The leaves on the vine are coloring yellow. The grape harvest is inside. The wine is bottled. What did I bottle this fall; what is my whine?
These questions are very helpful to reflect daily on where I am now, where do I come from and where do I want to go from here. Today another question about my personal harvest. To help me answer this question, the queen of Pentacles from the Anna K Tarot has made her appearance. An appropriate card I think. All the pentacles of this deck have that earthy feel. In this card the queen doesn't seem as regal as in other decks. To me she looks more like a warm cuddly mother.(I even suspect she is pregnant; look at her left hand J) She’s content and satisfied; the harvest (but one) is over. The fruits are picked. All different kind of fruits are gathered In the baskets. There is something for everyone’s taste . And most of all there’s enough. She is the nurturer of the kingdom. She sees to it, with love and care, that every material need is met.
But what do all those baskets carry? what are the fruits I enjoy the most? which do I share and which are mine to keep? As always tarot cards tend to raise more questions than give answers.
In any way I feel that it’s important to share my talents and goods with love and affection. I am very much a Hermit person. This Queen, as all queens, is all about letting things flow and prevent them from becoming stagnant.
So it is essential that I keep in mind that sharing with others is fulfilling, healing comforting and healthyMy eldest daughter is baking red velvet cupcakes. She will be our queen of pentacles today. Yummy! J
