Above is a photo taken about a week ago, giving you some idea of just how dry it has been.
The grass is crunchy.
After months of no rain, you start to really ache for some rain drops. You see the grass turning brown, and even the weeds dry up, and you start daydreaming about rainy days.
And then finally, last night, the skies opened up. I think Zeus was right above us, for the lightning and thunder were relentless. Every few seconds the skies lit up, and the thunder kept rolling endlessly. It was quite the experience, I tell you – and it went on for what seemed like hours, though I couldn’t tell for sure since we fell asleep at some point, despite all the apocalyptic backdrop.
So this morning’s first cards somewhat reminded me of rains and water, and lots of it – the Ace of Cups and the 2 of Cups. These are from the fairly new 78 Tarot, “a global art collaboration” of 78 different artists.
I love collaborative decks, even though I don’t use them for public readings, but I just like the different styles of art and fresh ideas.
These three cards welcome a great day in my opinion, even though the rain has now subsided and the sun is out again.
Wishing everyone a splendid weekend,
