Card of the Day for March 7, 2018 is from the Vision Quest Tarot by Gayan Sylvie Winter and Jo Dose’, US Games Systems, Inc. 1999
Nine of Water
“To be full of being is to live as a body-soul. One name for the experience of full being is joy.”
― J.M. Coetzee
The Nine of Water, (Nine of Cups) is often referred to as the “wish” card. But, imho, it really should be called the “wish fulfilled” card. Too many times we find ourselves wishing for more, always more, or something else. We’re not satisfied and fail to see that what we all ready have, is what we really need.
The natural beauty shown in this image is a wish fulfilled. The world around the figure is lush and thriving, the abundant water flows freely leaving the containers full to their brim, and the day is warm. For all intents and purposes, it appears to be a paradise.
“Now you can show your unacknowledged love for yourself and others openly. Thus, the gate to a completely new life-style opens. Fully enjoy what comes to you. Moreover, be grateful for what you already have. The power of your natural, UN-fabricated joy rejuvenates your heart. (Pg. 77)
To recognize the many gifts already within our grasp and know that our cup is already over-flowing, is to be grateful to the Universe and at peace with our soul.
