Today I received my copy of the Fountain Tarot which I had won in a giveaway in September. It is a stunning deck. It is even more beautiful in reality than the pictures I’ve seen online presumed. It feels like a whole year round, multipurpose deck.
After giving it thorough shuffle, the first card I drew was the Page of Swords – bold curiosity. A card about being open-minded to new ideas and situations. This page likes to try out new things and seek out new approaches to old concepts. A perfect guide to dive into this modern looking mesmerizing deck. But since the Page isn’t the studious type and has a rather short attention span, I asked what could help him to take the study of this deck more seriously and I pulled the Three of Wands – focused effort. Now this guy is holding on the his rope vigorously. He is not the kind to let go that easy when things get a bit more complicated. This is the attitude I need for my tarot studies: dedication! The guidebook talks about how he is alternating between energy puling inwards and energy pushing outwards. I love how this is depicted by act of rope twisting. In case of studying this deck this could be about reading and practicing versus contemplating and letting new information and experiences sink in
And last but not least like every Three of wands this cards also stands for the promise of success !
