Knitters Tarot Tuesday

Ten of Cups

 

This is one of the most peaceful cards of the deck. The ten cups arranged in a

rainbow, the happy couple beneath and the children playing. It represents peace,

harmony, fulfillment, joy. The house is surrounded by trees and a stream, also a

sign of prosperity. This is only cup card in which the cups are not supported by

material means.

We should take up our knitting this week and fly, anything is possible, try to pick

up that cast aside article, or finish that UFO, or soar with a new challenging

project!

 

The Tarot is a deck of cards that originated over 500 years ago in northern Italy. Although the Tarot was first used in a game called Triumphs, it was quickly adopted as a tool for divination, and popularized by occult societies such as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The early Tarot symbolism was deeply rooted in Medieval and Renaissance Europe.

Today, the Tarot is far and away the most popular tool for spiritual introspection in the West.

Enjoy your knitting this week
