Although it wasn't my intention to really start working with this deck, it did arouse my curiosity and perhaps it is a good deck for the beginning of this month. It might also be a good companion on my journey to explore my inner landscapes: “The landscapes of the abyss.”
So for today another eight; the Eight of Cups. Instead of a person leaving eight cups, we see a young child with the skin of a lion, draped over his shoulders. The combination of opposites reminds me of the Strength card. Real strength comes from an open and truthful heart rather than from anger and vengeance
So if you are to face obstacles and stressful situations, it is wise to approach it with and open heart instead of being totally shut down and on guard
That way you stay true to who you really are and from this comes inner strength, confidence and self-reliance which will be shining in your eyes, and permeate your demeanor like the sun on the child’s wrist
Easier said than done, since I am inclined to close all the shutters in times of trouble. It seems to me this card is showing me the right attitude to open the door from the Eight of Swords and meet the one in the tower. Perhaps it is this child I will meet there….
