Ace of Birds
This afternoon I had a siesta. And as I was waking up I "got" four images and what they meant. I recalled that Wandering Coyote had suggested that some of my pictures would make good "tarot" cards and realised that these cards could be the start of a set.
This is the first of the cards. I am clearly being influenced by a set I already have which has birds in it however I am not planning on recreating their pictures or meanings though I cheerfully acknowledge and am grateful for their inspiration.
The Ace of Birds
This bird represents healing through appropriate nourishment of the body and soul. It is not taking medicine but good food.
It also shows how others die to enable us to live. All the food we eat once lived, even cabbages.
We also benefit from all the work of our ancestors, if you look at a family tree the number of people getting together to make you is astonishing! And thus this card is also about giving thanks to our ancestors.
I don't know what the reversed meaning might be - any suggestions?
Other suggestions for what the upright means would also be appreciated!
