Kimberly M. Tsan - 4 of Disks, 7 of Wands and 7 of Disks
4 of Disks: The traditional Rider-Waite Tarot portrays 4 of Pentacles as a miser, but I've always perceived 4 of Pentacles as a card that captures the freedom and productivity created from structure and commitment. We build our lives by recognizing and manifesting the things that matter most to us; and our routines are a reflection of what we deem important to our growth and development. We need the magic and imagination from the mewnicorn, the vision and bravery from the wings on our backs, the spiritual truths and wisdom that anchor us down, and last but not least--a good relationship with the little shadow creatures that dwell inside of our psyche. 4 of Pentacles is a card that teaches us to be grounded in our being on earth, to fill every inch of our body with heart, spirit, courage and truth--to fully em"body" spirit in the four corners of our existence.
7 of Wands: Owing your stance, your perspectives, and your personal power is bad-ass. Investing in a future that you believe in is bad ass. Fighting for what you want, lifting an island into the sky with pure magic is bad ass. It may feel like the entire world is against us sometimes, as if it's a big cosmic joke and God is laughing his head off while sitting in his armchair and holding a bowl of sinfully butter-drenched popcorn--but 7 of Wands stands undefeated and is not afraid to single himself out from the crowd to manifest his destiny.
7 of Disks: Donuts. Ah, the delicious reward after a long day of working hard, the guilty indulgence, the little things that make us happy in life. Your "little thing" doesn't have to be donuts, but those are the things that should count when we are evaluating the big picture and measuring our actions, our efforts and our plans against our higher purpose. The 7 of Disks is about patience, examining and appreciating the steps that we have taken to get to where we are today. It is about recognizing that sometimes we need to take the time to reflect on our progress, analyze the data, figure out what works and what doesn't so that we may formulate a new plan to move forward and optimize our efforts. There are different modes when it comes to being productive! (Such as, you know, taking the time to eat some donuts…)
Bio: Hey there! My name is Kimberly M. Tsan and I'm an intuitive Tarot reader at Fables Den. I've always been more of "wordy" and textual person and taking on the quest of illustrating a Tarot card has been quite the adventure indeed! The beauty of Tarot is that its archetypes speak to every one of us, connects us to ourselves and the collective human experience. It is a catalyst for creative expression, transcendental storytelling, personal development, and spiritual evolution. I am grateful for Tarot's magical vibrations as well as the wonderful Tarot peeps that are part of this community. I am also grateful for Janet Boyer for rallying the troops and making this deck possible, as well as her enthusiasm and encouragement. I wouldn't have taken part if it weren't for her little push! :D Come visit me and the Den at FablesDen.com.
