Ukiyoe Tarot – Queens of Swords and Cups
Normally I draw one card per day, but these two ladies popped out together as I was shuffling (first time with this deck, recent acquisition) so I thought perhaps it was significant. So, what to say? GRRL POWER! Or not. Air and Water. Lots of water. Watery part of Air, Watery part of Water. I’m drowning. My emotions are overriding my intellect. Hmm. Yeah, I guess you could say that. It’s been a tough week, emotionally. Part of me knows I need to just suck it up and deal, but most of me wants to sit in the corner and suck my thumb. Now that the Stressmas season is upon us, I have never felt so bleak. And why turn to a deck full of beautiful pinks and purples and roses and flowers instead of my usual dark, gothy, creepy decks? Dunno. I haven’t had this deck long, and I’ve been hunting it down for years, so I was dying to take it for a spin.
Started what I expect will be a short story yesterday, wholly unrelated to vampires, paranormal, supernatural, or horror. Likely very depressing. I’m pushing all these emotions out onto the page.
