Today's cyber-Tarot, 9 of Cups


9 of Cups: "on your right stands the queen, in gold of Ophir" (from the book of Psalms...no, I do not make all this **** up!) lol The Virgin Mary appears seated on a Chariot, as in some gold-leafed Tarots of old, lol! She holds aloft the Catholic sacrament of the Blessed Sacrament.... Catholics, eat your hearts out, lol! Mystical and emotional fulfilment: her cup runneth over with the light of the sun. o O (see emotional resonances here with my major arcana of the Sun, the woman of revelation, "clothed with the sun", the bride of the apocalypse?) She appears adorned with many pearls of great price, which, like Freyja's necklace Brisingamen, seem her tears transformed... Unfortunately, her beauty seems as usual beyond my artistic ability to replicate it.... i.e. mystical ineffability, in image, as well as word ;-P
(Wonder if this has something to do with the admission of my mate Shirley to the blogosphere? Tada! See link to Tarot, Painting and Stuff ;-))

And now that the day has passed, what do you think the card referred to ? What significance do you think it had after the fact ?

"Today" still hasn't passed, yet, Sebi, but at the time, note, I associated it with the birth into the blogosphere of Tarot, Painting and Stuff (Shirley's blog): see my blogrolling sidebar! ;-))
