Today, a two-card
spread on the nature of war and peace.
1) What is war?
KING OF WANDS,
REVERSED. War is a misdirected or misguided release of masculine
energy by leaders who are too immature to use it responsibly.
2) What is
PENTACLES, UPRIGHT. Peace is the crown of groundedness, a willingness
to share all resources with all beings, based upon a detachment from
worldly sources of security. Peace is good stewardship of the Earth
and all that lives and grows upon Her.
I find it
interesting that another King turned up. It's almost as though the
Tarot wanted to repeat the King of Wands, but in an upright position,
to say, "the opposite of that first guy." Perhaps two decks would have
been in order.
