Hmmm. I drew these 3 cards this morning, before the day really began. Being a Sunday, and part of a long 4-day weekend, today was going to be a chilled and homely kind of day. So I felt the Queen of Pentacles reflected this – but then struggled to interpret the following cards, 10 of Swords and 4 of Swords.
And now, looking over the whole day, I have to laugh at how literal these cards are, in a very mundane sort of way. Rest assured, I have not disintegrated like the character in the 10 of Swords. But within an hour of waking up, I started feeling sick, and very shortly had every symptom of a cold. Much like this guy, I felt all the energy drain out of me, as if my essence was being sucked out and evaporated. I spent much of the day lying on the couch watching movies, eating garlic and blowing my nose. Finally, in the evening I decided to actually do something, and went out to harvest tomatoes from my garden, intent on making a nice tomato sauce.
That’s them below, plus some parsley and oregano.
This photo was taken before I washed them, so they still have dirt on them. The funny thing about this is, the 4 of Swords card sort of resembles me next to a pot of freshly made tomato sauce🙂 Tee hee heee.
I assure you I didn’t cover myself with it! I know the main meaning of this card – rest and recuperation – is very fitting for my day of rest. But also I think the visual is matching my tomato sauce making experiment too.
So I thought this was quite funny. Oh well. I shall enjoy a glass of red wine and have a nicely relaxing evening, and hopefully will get better by tomorrow.
