So last week, I decided to start using some of the decks I bought but never used. Today is the start of a few days of Once Upon a Time deck by Lisa Hunt. I've had it since Jul 2009. I love the artwork and I love the stories. I do find the detail of the cards to be a little overwhelming and for me, at my advanced age of 63, too small. I keep my magnifying glass handy :)
I did a three card spread for myself earlier today with a specific question in mind and absolutely got an answer. I spent quite a bit of time looking at the three cards and writing down my thoughts. I also read what Lisa had to say in her book. The Rider-Waite card for each popped into the back of my mind giving me some help.
Moments ago I pulled a card just for today as a general guide.
Nine to me means I'm almost there, the new beginning is around the corner. It might not be exactly what I had envisioned once upon a time but just as rewarding. Perhaps a time to pat myself on the back a little. I made it through another challenge to be a stronger, more evolved being. It also reinforces my view it is always better to give without any thought of something in return.
The card itself is very busy. Perhaps a little too busy for me. The old man is a part of that tree and his kindness and willingness to help steer the young boy along his path beyond the forest is selfless. He gives with joy.
As I looked up and out my window, I saw a gorgeous peregrine falcon land on a tree branch in my little forest. What a better way to end ....
