Cards and Initial Comments for March
From the tiny Universal Waite - the Knight of Pentacles reversed
There are times when stillness talks better than a thousand words
From the Tarot Nova - the Page of Cups reversed
This page looks like he just broke out of prison in his striped shirt and hat. He is on his knees with a bouquet of flowers in one hand and is extending his other hand with a cup, like a Dixie cup with a heart on it. It's almost like he is asking for forgiveness and for a handout at the same time. Beware of false repentance! Things that seem innocent at first may have an ulterior agenda. Look at both sides of the issue before accepting gifts from dark and shifty characters.
From the Rider Waite - 4 of Pentacles
My words are easy to understand
Putting them into practice is something else.
They are easy to follow
But nobody follows them
Although these words are born of ancient days
The deeds they enshrine are its sacred pattern
Yet people are completely ignorant of them.
Those who know me are few
Thus I am even more valuable.
The wise spirit may wear rags
But he holds a jewel in his heart.
This is the card of Secret Treasure
76 + 47 +68 = 191 = 11 Justice
1 + 1 = 2 High Priestess
This stillness looks like
Yet, there is so much activity
Starting to see
What lies behind
Each fleeting shadow
In each imaginary castle
Requires all your
No time for petty tyrants
Or useless distractions
The path to touching
Your inner core
As all formidable paths
As all goals of the heart
Dearest friends, may this month bring us all more self knowledge, compassion and understanding. It is very easy to judge others in order to avoid responsibility for our own actions. However, if we look deep inside us, with honesty and courage, we will see that it has always been us, the ones who chose and thus the ones who have to suffer the consequences of the choice. And the more we get to know ourselves and our inner motives, the more empowered we are in order to lead the fulfilling lives we dream of.
