Camelot Oracle ~ Card of the Week: Arthur

To join us this week, we have the One True King of Albion, King Arthur himself. We know who Arthur was, as far as the myths go. He was the King of Albion, uniting the lands, created the Round Table, the famous Knights of Camelot, hunted and found the Holy Grail and had an old magician, Merlin, on hand to help him.

The latest TV adaptation had Arthur as a known son of Uther Pendragon, but from the other stories (animated ones like the Sword in the Stone) Arthur never knew his father or his parentage, he was secreted away at birth and only proclaimed King when he had withdrawn the Sword from the Stone when he was around 15.

That’s rather a young age at which to create such a legacy that we somewhat know and love today. It is not just about being chivalrous and brave, but to have equality with each other, regardless of religion, faith, creed, colour. It’s a pity that, centuries later, that ideal is long gone out of practice, but is slowly I think, coming back into reality. It’s taken us some time though, hasn’t it?

What else can Arthur offer to us this week? He rose above his adversities, even in love, to become the Legend that Sean Connery, Clive Owen and Bradley James have portrayed. (My favourite being, Clive Owen, in case you were wondering). He offers to us a balance and harmony amongst fellow-man. Given how many people are now living on this planet of ours, that’s harder every single day, but we can a) try, and b) avoid if necessary. Though, avoiding things wasn’t quite in Arthur’s mentality, was it?

This is where he can help: we must at least try. Approach every task you need to undertake this week with positive and determined steps, knowing that Arthur’s mentality is behind and helping you along your path this week.

      Thank you, Adrienne! I’m going to be doing these weekly around my pregnancy and delivery of my third, so there might be a small gap around Imbolc / Valentines Day until April time πŸ™‚

    We can no longer be friends. That you would choose ANYONE over Sean Connery??? I can’t even speak to you. πŸ˜€

    This Arthur does have a steady gaze, doesn’t he? I wouldn’t be able to lie looking into those eyes.

      *LOL* I didn’t say that I didn’t like Mr Connery’s rendition, but I DO prefer the story with Clive Owen as Arthur… less, Hollywoody, even if Sean’s version DOES have Mark Ryan (one of this decks creators) in the movie… πŸ˜›

      And I don’t think I could lie looking into those eyes either… I think you’ve (yet again) nailed it my dear πŸ™‚
