A Collage and a Card
I had no intentions when laying these images down. As they came together I realized that I was hurt, angry and betrayed. A friend of many years made a fundamental changes in her belief system and increasingly tried to bring me along with her. We didn’t agree on things anymore. When she told me that I was going to hell along with all of my other friends, I had to end the friendship. I glued these images in a dollar composition book around Christmas, with the only expectation that I needed a way to relax at night. I was not prepared to have deep truths revealed by simply gluing pictures in a book. That friend called recently after months of not talking. It didn’t go well this time either. I decided to go back to this journal pull a card to go with this page. The Queen of Pentacles. I see her as the more practical sister to my Soul Card the Empress. In this spread she nurtures the young girl who has been hurt, who is trying to make sense of ten years of friendship lost. Her message is that you are Queen of your life. Take care of yourself and do what nurtures you. Love and care for others even if the practical way to do that is from a distance. Keep your eyes open there is an abundance of whatever you need.
