|Page of Vessels - Otter |
After having drawn two aces from the Anna K Tarot, which felt very stimulating but also somewhat demanding, I've chosen another deck for today: My Wildwood Tarot by Mark Ryan and John Matthews and illustrated by Will Worthington. How I long for the day I can say: ”My trusty old Wildwood Tarot” J
But let’s stay in the moment and focus on my daily draw: The page of Vessels (cups) aka Otter. Keep breathing Ellen: A courtcard depicting an animal! That’s something entirely new! What a way to start with a new deck.
My first impression of this card is playfulness. If you've ever seen an otter in the water you know what I mean. They are also social and loving to their fellow otters. An otter can live both on land as well as in water. In both environments they feel equally at home. I love to see an otter floating in the river stream. It looks wonderful and so effortless.
Now let’s see what the guidebook has to say about this page of vessels
It says this animal can be seen as a mediator between the worlds. Of course they highlight the playful character and the intuitive, sensitive side of this page. For me he’s a welcome pause and reassurance after the aces. He can help me to intuitively know whether to focus on the ace of wands or on the ace of swords or…… to let the aces be for a while and contemplate the splendor of everyday life during meditation or just while pondering and doing nothing. Since “Going with the flow” is my theme of this month I am happy to be accompanied by this beautiful animal
