Less than half an hour after publishing yesterday’s post, the dog went ballistic and nearly knocked my not inexpensive MacBook to the floor. (Almost a Tower moment there!). The reason for this? DD’spassport had dropped through the letterbox. Woo-hoo! One step closer to Italy 🙂
No, the Tower moment came this morning when I clipped the base of my favourite wine glass and broke it. Not a major disaster, you might think, but it is a hand made, Bohemian, historic reproduction goblet and absolutely unique, plus it has been in almost daily use for the last 18 months and I’m very attached to it. On the plus side, it was only the base that broke and a fairly clean break, so I may be able to repair it. Best method of repairing glass, please? Superglue? Epoxy resin? Something else?
I do have another (glasses do get broken in this house), but it’s not the same. *sigh*
So on to today’s Advent Card and the Quest Tarot comes to hand and I’ve drawn…The Wheel of Fortune again…
but, this time, reversed :/
Now, I don’t normally use reversals, so I tend to pay attention when one comes up. Although, looking at the rest of the cards, quite a few are reversed so the last time I used it (some time ago), I must have been playing with reversals.
Perhaps I’ve missed the boat by not getting a lottery ticket yesterday when the Wheel first came up. Oh well, business as usual then 🙂
In terms of the imagery, there is definitely a tree shape there and the hand at the top is reminiscent of icicles. A chilly Christmas perhaps, though the golden glow of the card would at least suggest that it won’t be a dreary one. Huzzah for that! 🙂
The accompanying book mentions stagnation and depression in the interpretations for this card reversed. If you’re reading this series and have made it this far, please take a moment to comment. Although taking to oneself usually guarantees at least occasionally intelligent conversation, it can be quite depressing if you get the feeling nobody is listening 😀
