Wildwood COTD : Five of Vessels

It’s FRIDAY!! One of the best days of the week! It’s nearly the weekend, the time to relax with the family. A few chores and improvements are lined up this weekend, which I am looking

Five of Vessels ~ Ecstasy

forward to seeing complete, but for today, our Card of the Day is the Five of Vessels, with the keyword of “Ecstasy”. Here you can see a woman jumping and dancing in a pentacle on the ground, each of the their points is lit up by a candle in a vessel. We can see the night stars, indicating that this activity is happening a time of dreams, or is even happening in a dream.

The look on the woman’s face though, doesn’t look so happy! Is she just going through the motions and emotions? Is she engaged or disengaged? I look at her and I have a feeling of disenchantment alongside the feelings already mentioned. So, what is she doing dancing? Well, because, sitting down and moping just isn’t an option. Wallowing in self-pity and emotional discontent is just that: wallowing. Self indulged self-destruction. So, she’s doing something about it. She’s carrying on regardless.

What are you doing today that you really don’t want to? Do people notice that you’re not happy? Or are you putting on your ecstasy / brave face? For me, I’m feeling genuinely happy today and I am smiling. I’m just rather naff at dancing in a pentacle and I don’t like being stared at. I’m too self-conscious for dancing in public!
