The Balloon Goes Up

June 8, 2011

The Past

The Harvest

The Harvest

(Reversed) Final effort, last step, remaining work before fruition
Basic Interpretation:
A woman in the fullness of pregnancy, holds the bounty of the fertile countryside. This is the Harvest; the time of reward for long work and dedication. It is the fullness of life, the happy reward and the richness of the season.

The Present

The Jester

The Jester

(Reversed) Secrets, veiled truths, possible danger in direct truth
Basic Interpretation:
Pondering the ways of the world, the Jester sits and contemplates his staff. He has seen much and heard more; his shoulders bear the weight of knowledge that he cannot openly reveal. His jokes mask his wisdom and sometimes keep him alive when his beliefs are unpopular. He is clever, but bound by convention.

The Future

Air

Air

(Reversed) Flighty, clouded, unbounded
Basic Interpretation:
The clear skies hold all the purity and dynamism of human thought. Air itself is the fundamental representative of intellect, thought, memory and wisdom. It is a fundamental force; without direction but able to be channeled by those who wish to focus its power. The winds of this card are always blowing, rarely seen and eternally present.
