Book: Card of craftspeople and artisans, doing what you love enough to be supported by it, do work that honors you
Guidance: Be prepared for hard work
It's interesting as I've always read this card as cooperation and working with others, but this card doesn't speak to it as it speaks to individual efforts. I did go back to check the meanings in other books and there are books that read the card as collaboration, but this card doesn't and focuses on an individual's personal effort. This gives me something different to think about as I had chosen this card in the hopes that it would inspire cooperation and teamwork. Oddly, enough in a way it did as we did have a fairly peaceful day today without a lot of drama.
However, when I look at what the card based on this reading, I realize that this is yet another message that I'm at a turning point and that I need to be prepared for my life to change in a big way. It makes sense because I've been doing a lot of thinking and reflecting on what I want to be when I grow up and I know I want to write, I want to inspire people, but I don't know if I want to work one on one with people as that takes a lot of emotional energy. I'm going to keep working with Cam on Cairn by Cairn and work on putting classes together and we'll see where it goes.
