This morning I decided to do another “Tell A Story” practice. This practice is not designed to impart any information. Its purpose is to help me get comfortable tying the cards together.
6 of Wands, The Moon and Temperance
First Impressions: Although this practice is designed just to tell a story I always like to practice getting an overview. I have one Minor Arcana and Two Major Arcana.
The Story. Gallant Knight has been on the front fighting for victory for years and years. His determination, sound strategy, and patience has allowed him to prevail. He and his men have won. They have won a hard fought victory. Today is his homecoming. Gallant Knight returns home to respect, gratitude and cheers. It feels good to arrive home victorious! But in the dark of night, Gallant wonders. Visions of the ugly side the war hound him. Miseries of the past war come back to haunt him. In the dark shadows of night the knight is afraid. Terrors of his mind seem so real. Dark and foreboding dreams keep him from sleep. It is in the minutes before dawn that he has a vision. A vision of what morning will bring. Clarity. The vision in his dream whispers that balance is needed. To heal from the dark, hidden, wounds of war he will need to work hard on recovering a balance to his life without “the good fight”.
That’s my story… and I am sticking to it. Happy Tuesday!
