Today's Draw...etc.

Today I drew the 5 of Cups

Today is Thursday, and yesterday was my bi-monthly luncheon with my dear old friends. The 5 of Cups stands in stark contrast to the 3 that I got last week. Fives tend to engender uneasy feelings, sometimes arguments and just general emotional tension Hmmm.. And the 3 cups have been spilled, yet 2 still remain upright. We can presume they are not empty, though even empty they symbolize potential. This card always seems to be saying, "Don't cry over spilled milk"... move on there is still Hope.

Since I didn't draw the card until today it is reflecting today's energy ... and I am way tired, totally spent and in pain unless I'm sitting or lying down. I'm sure I'll feel better tomorrow. We were together for seven hours, might be too long for me to be sitting in other people's chairs. And, it was chilly. I just didn't have as much fun as I did last week. I hope I remember to draw a card each week after our get togethers so I can watch the way this part of our journey together unfolds.

We did get around to discussing our croning ceremony which we are planning for some time in the early fall. Nikki has done quite a bit of work on her peacepole and it's totally awesome. Ingrid has chosen her clothes for the croning. None of us are like totally pagan so we're just making this thing up as we go along, should be interesting. Will be amazing if we actually pull it off. But we are a bunch of game old broads so it might happen.

And we were all Camp Fire Girls.

I am grateful to have my sisters close again.

I am grateful for good food, especially when someone else cooks it.

I appreciate the rain today.

I am grateful for Joe who did the dishes today.

Oh, what is the croning ceremony going to be like? Is it for all of you or just a new one who has reached a certain age? Sounds so interesting.

I belong to a women's group too. Sometimes we call it a a writing group, sometimes an art group, sometimes Sister Circle. At times we flounder and don't know where we are heading with it. But no matter what, I am glad we have it. Women friends are the best! 7 hours together does sound a bit long though.

It will be for all of us as we are now all at least 65. Drumming, poetry, bonfire and of course, food.

Thanks for explaining the croning ceremony. Interesting. Thanks also for explaining the tarot cards. Like astrology, but less specific? I heard years ago that the owner of the tarot cards is the only one who should touch them. Is that true, or was it ever true? Just curious. Blessings.

Like astrology in some ways but much more subjective, Tarot is based on a series of archetypal images that reveal the energy present in situations or events thus offering clues as to what decision might be most beneficial at the time of the reading. They don't tell the future as many believe.

There are certainly readers who don't allow others to touch their decks, but as in any discipline everybody's different in their thinking. I usually have querants cut the deck after I shuffle them. I've found the cards to be quite accurate and helpful in making decisions.

Thank you so much for the explanation. I think I understand now and will be looking forward to your readings in the future. Blessings
