Ahhhh. What great cards I drew today. From the Gilded Deck by Ciro Marchetti. Rich, realistic scenes, vibrant colors. Another of my favorite decks. I have the 9 of Cups, the 3 of Pentacles, the 10 of Cups.The first thing I see is the 9 golden cups, on display in all their glory, and a man that is holding one up as if he is toasting someones happiness. This is the Wish card, and when you draw it you are to make a wish and watch it happen! In the next card (3 of Pent.) the master craftsman is finishing up a work of art, he knows he is talented and proud of what he creates.Going into the next card (10 of cups) you see 2 women sitting outside a cozy cottage home, they are sewing and chatting, happily recounting all their blessings, as 10 golden cups arch over the home and rainbow colors prism off of the cups. Together these cards would say, what you wish for is being created, you may not see it as it is not quite ready yet....but the end result is well worth waiting for. The power of a single wish. As Dorothy would say.....theres no place like home, theres no place like home. The center card is the craftsman, and he is down in the basement, working away, so he cannot see what the others are so happy about. He takes joy in the smallest details of his work, I think he will be happy to see where his newest creation will end up, no doubt in the home of the last card. I think he is the husband and he has built and landscaped this charming cottage. He is a wealthy man, not by the amount of money he has hoarded, but by expressing his talent and by loving his wife and family. He knows what true happiness is, and therefore has had his wishes come true. And they all lived happily ever after...........(I want the fairy tale.)
