I’ve been busy with a lot of volunteer work this weekend, but I managed to complete the Queen of Cups last night. I’ve chosen the carpet python to symbolize this card. Snakes have almost specialized their ribs as much as the red slider turtle who represents the King of Cups, and in the same way the Queen of Cups has deep control of her emotions as well. Additionally, a snake’s ability to sense vibrations mirrors this card’s tendency toward sensitivity, especially toward things that may be under the surface. But what about the python’s deadly hug? That surely doesn’t reflect the Queen’s notable compassion! Well, not exactly. But Carpet Python invites us to feel compassion toward all beings, including those that may make us feel uncomfortable, like snakes!
Also, you have only THREE DAYS left to back the Tarot of Bones IndieGoGo campaign! It ends this Tuesday, May 19, and it’s currently at $9,225 (185% funded!) Every dollar will go toward making the Tarot of Bones deck and book a reality; materials for the remaining assemblages are covered, but there are other costs like printing and perk fulfillment, so the more I raise now the less I have to come up with later. If you’ve already backed it, many thanks to you! Please pass the campaign link on to others who may be interested so they don’t miss out.
