A Card and Sonnet for the week

So here’s our weekly card. When I pulled it, I kind of went ‘meh’ and almost reached for another deck to try again. And then I remembered what week this is. Ha. Tarot certainly has a sense of humor.

Knight of Cups

Well, it is Valentine’s Day this week. We have the Knight of Cups, the romantic dreamer, who may not always be as practical and grounded as he should be. It’s easy to get carried away with romantic notions and dreams, making decisions based on feelings rather than facts. That’s not always a bad thing, just don’t let it get out of hand.

Whether you’re in a relationship or not, Happy Valentine’s Day to one and all. Maybe do something nice for someone. Or yourself. Buy yourself some flowers, you don’t have to wait for someone else to give them to you.

Sonnet 116, William Shakespeare

Let me not to the marriage of true minds

	Admit impediments. Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds,

	Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark

	That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wandering bark,

	Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks

	Within his bending sickle's compass come:

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

	But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,

	I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

    1. True, true. One never knows 😉 I love that sonnet, I like the scene in “Sense and Sensibility” where Marianne Dashwood and John Willoughby recite it together.
