And today on this day of Litha (The Summer Solstice), Priestess Tarot turns over the Nine of Bows * Respect. Happy Solstice everyone!!
I’ve not pulled this card out of this deck before and this fellow certainly seems to demand respect. He’s coming right towards me over the roots that hide his camp, short bow in hand, arrow held in place. He’s not happy I’ve found him and he’s demanding and commanding respect.
The two words are very different. Demanding to me is screaming, shouting, like a toddler would. Commanding is like an older man or parent would. Quietly, strongly, with stature. This fellow has both going. And what, pray tell, am I being told to be respectful about?
Lots of things I should imagine. My family, my friends. My car (it’s in for service) the loan car (it’s a Discovery, so err… yeah!), this Tarot deck (yes, it is that way inclined) and life in general. And in the final case, be respectful of nature and myself.
