This weekend I finally purchased the Wizards Tarot by Corrine Kenner. Hooray! Unfortunately, when I took it to lunch and went through the deck, there were two Knight of Swords cards. What was worse is that the 10 of Cups was missing.
I had a good, long laugh at this. The Knight of Swords often comes up for me when I am too much in my head, forging along doing projects that may or may not be the best idea for me. This has been happening a lot in my business, where it has been “full steam ahead” for some time. Part of this has been my exploration of what I really want to do with this business and how I can best help other people.
Not all of it has worked out. Not all of it has felt right. But I have learned a TON from it, and can now help advise other people on the perils out there.
But back to my new deck: there was no 10 of Cups. If you’ve read my blogs in the past, you have heard me begrudge that I am not a “feelings” or “emotions” person. I have had a lot of trouble connecting with this aspect of myself, and for a while did a Mind, Body, Spirit, and Feelings spread every day. While it was somewhat helpful, I always hated turning over that last card. Even today I completely resist doing that spread. So for the 10 of Cups, which is often about emotional completeness, happy families, and the like to go missing, well, let’s not get too deep in analyzing that.
I will say that I was able to trade the deck at the store for a new one. A complete one. While Llewellyn (the publishing company) would have undoubtedly sent me a replacement card I didn’t feel like going through the rigamarole if I didn’t have to. Now my happy little complete Wizard’s Tarot is here.
I think I’ll do a Mind, Body, Spirit, and Emotions spread today and see what’s what.
