Today’s card is from a deck that I have on order. I haven’t heard yet whether it is in. The lush beauty of the first card I see pulled me in–hard. I am a very visual person. If there is a TV on near me, I check right out of any conversations. I try to position myself with my back to the tube if I’m out at dinner with friends.
And here’s why. As I stare at this card, I see the lions (all four of them), the Daliesque sunflowers, the cat who looks so much like my beloved Carmen, the hint of a peacock on the staff, the rich fabric of her dress and the face of Angeline Jolie staring out at me.
Is it Jolie? I don’t know. She’d make an excellent Queen of Wands though. But this card shows off the stylish side of the active Fire mistress. Odd that I am such a water sign but identify with this queen more than any other.
She is fierce. She is ready to get things done. She is a do-it-herself woman.
Those are pluses as well as minuses really.
That last one…that do-it-herself one? Yeah. That’s why I’m currently on two different medications. One to stop the inflammation and the other to help me sleep while the inflammation is still raging. In a word? I hurt.
Back to that do-it-herself. I could have easily asked for help moving the dog crate and other things for my house-sitting gig. Did I? No. Why?
Picture a three year old, curly black hair, hands on hips shouting, “I DO IT MYSELF.”
Yeah. Never quite grew out of that.
So now I get to pay for that toddler attitude. 😀
What about you? What is your “DO IT MYSELF” moment? How did you learn to stop and ask?
I’m still working on that one. Getting a bit better, but still…hands on hips!

Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.
