It’s been awhile, so let me just bash right back into it. 🙂
The Daily Deskhenge (with The Mary-El Tarot by Marie White):
Today’s layout is about brightness and shadow, without assigning “good” or “bad” meanings to either of them. The card on the left, the 10 of Wands, is the Shadow card. The 10 of Wands in shadow is out of control fire, or fire on the verge of becoming out of control. It is passion that has begun to feed on itself because it has nowhere else to go. The Creator has become The Destroyer, the force of nature consuming everything in its path. The card on the right, the 4 of Disks, is the Bright card. I read it in its bright aspect as a card of finding home, whatever that means to you. The star evident in the card is a symbol to me of great hope and peace, and the home itself in the card is situated as if it were a mountain retreat. Follow the light home. The winding paths are often the straightest way to achieving your goals.
Put them together and you have an admonition of awareness against letting your passions sit idle. Remember how your Grandma used to shake her finger at you and say, “Idle hands are the Devil’s playground”? Well, today she would be right (not about the Devil, though). Use your passion to guide you home. Let your inner fire light your way. Don’t be afraid when all the lights go out: your heart knows its way home. (And before you wonder why the heck I’m dragging Grandma into this, those stones in the middle of the layout are my Ancestor stones. So yeah, I get to call on Grandma. 😀 )
