Farewell to the King of Swords!
Did you miss me? I took myself (and family) off to Blackpool for a few days so that my son had a better memory of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee than just a day off school.
Ever diligent, I took my laptop with me, but when your hotel overlooks Blackpool Pleasure Beach and this is the view from your bedroom window, blogging kinda goes OUT the window!
You’re probably thinking ‘Jeez, what a shit view!’ but, dear reader, I REQUESTED a bedroom with a view over the rollercoasters because I LOVE listening to their thunder and rattle (and the excited screaming!). I feel happy when I hear it. Odd?
The card drawn was the Mary El King of Swords.
Around the outline of his body snakes script, almost echoing the curved dragon – I cannot read the script and there is no mention of it in his description in the LWB *note to self: You need stronger specs* I choose to interpret these words as acting like a protective shield around him – words are his weapon and his defence.
I am very fond of the King of Swords in any deck and I am loathe to part with his good qualities….so I hope that his negative qualities are on the wane over the coming weeks. This will mean that I will no longer let my (or other people’s!) thoughts, doubts or fears harm me nor hold me back.
*sharpens quill and unscrews top from ink bottle*
I’m ready. Are you? What does this King of Swords mean to you? Do you like him?!
The Tarot’s Court Cards are my specialist area. They talk to me.
Not LITERALLY though ….
