Wildwood COTD : Six of Stones

Today, the card of the day is the Six of Stones. This card hasn’t come up before (and I really ought NOT to have said about hardly getting Stones out of this deck!) but I feel it’s got a good measure on me already today.

Exploitation
Card of the Day

The key word with this card is “Exploitation” and you see two people, standing in the open, holding out their bowls and looking at the heavens. Their clothes are in rags, their bee hives are destroyed and there’s a grass fire raging behind them. Still, they won’t move. Why not?!

They haven’t worked out that the land is spent. There’s no food for the bees, so they left. There’s no crops and it’s all dusty and dry. These people have, somehow, tapped the land dry. They’ve exhausted it. Why? I have no idea. But they have done that. I have to be careful and not to do that today both to my family, my environment and just as importantly, myself.
