Wildwood COTD : Ten of Vessels

This is one of the best cards for a Friday. The other one that is also good for Friday’s has to be the Three of Vessels, but today, we have the fantastic Ten of Vessels with the key word of: Happiness. (I still hear Helen Shapiro’s song “Walking Back to Happiness” in my head when I see this card. Oh well!)

Card of the Day
Ten of Vessels - Happiness

As we can see from the image, the waterfall cascades down, filling up the vessels with more water than they need. They overflow at a good old rate and what they cannot take, flows on past to be used elsewhere. Such is the water-butt of life. If life gives you enough, we tend to be happy. This card however, being vessels, is more linked to the emotions.

Checking in the book, it is indeed about generous fulfilment of desires, sharing, of happiness flowing through your life, into your friends, back to you and away again, in any which way emotions wish to.

Is this a card of partying? It’s probably one of them, for after all, who does not enjoy the company of others? It is rather necessary for someone to be fulfilled regularly, to be included and enjoy the company of others, to be happy at least some of the time. Eternal happiness is not something I think we can achieve, but the aim is to be happy at regular intervals.

So, this Friday, the hint I feel is this: Don’t worry, be happy!! Enjoy the company, the feeling of family (and not necessarily that of blood family) of being fulfilled and included, belonging.

Happy Friday!
