It is my mother's birthday, she died thirty years ago but I still celebrate this day in my own quiet remembrance of her. When I pulled the Three of Wands as my weekly tarot card, I got that tingly feeling of synchronicity. It is my mother who stands in the spirit world watching over my spirit boat. The three flowering wands signify the promise of fulfillment. I completed a new painting this week of that same spirit boat but now empty, reflecting my feelings of aloneness. How soothing to be reminded that my spirit is indeed full of loved ones, whether they are here or there.
