    I’ll take a shot. Do the pineapples represent abundance?

    Wow, I missed that one. I was thinking it was High Priestess:o I searched for symbolism of the pineapple and I found friendship, abundance, hospitality and welcome…makes perfect sense for the Empress :thumbsup:

    I think you’re next, Laura!:banana:

    Oh man I’m so sorry, not the empress, the high priestess, you’re 100% correct! I was thinking high priestess and typed empress :o

    OMG that is funny, Pam…cause look at the throne of the Empress….behind her pillow is what looks like a large pineapple pattern(a little hidden from view by that large orange, comfy looking pillow)! Two symbols for the price of one tonight:D

    OK so my turn?

    Clue: A snail :)

    Does the snail symbolize patience?

    The snail is out of place… be aware of what else going on around you?

    Good eye Don, I wouldn’t have thought of that. :thumbsup:

    Hmmm. Word association…
    snail – night (snails are nocturnal) – moon – feminine – unseen
    snail – shell – protection – retreat
    snail – slow – steady – pace yourself (snail’s pace)
    snail tracks – reminder that everything you do, say, and everywhere you go you leave energy impressions, so mindful of your actions!

    Yes! 9 of Pents it is:clap:

    To me, that snail is a reminder to take the time to take your time; to occasionally stop and smell the roses in the garden of life.

    Laura, I think you were next :)

    Yes! :clap: Your turn!

    The water lily on this card represents the opening up of one’s emotional life. Could be a new relationship or a fresh beginning in an existing one. Any other ideas of what it means?

    Awesome, Don! :wave:

    The Water Lily can also represent or purity of heart and soul in the physical world; the aspiring soul. It is planted in the muddy, murky bottom of a pond and grows through, rising to the surface of the water to produce a beautiful flower.

    In Buddhist symbolism, the lotus represents purity of body, speech, and mind, floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire.

    Hindus associate the lotus blossom with creation mythology, and with the gods Vishnu, Brahma, and Lakshmi. From ancient times the lotus has been a divine symbol in Hindu tradition. It is often used as an example of divine beauty, for example Sri Krishna is often described as the ‘Lotus-Eyed One’. Its unfolding petals suggest the expansion of the soul. The growth of its pure beauty from the mud of its origin holds a benign spiritual promise.

    The thing that comes to my mind concerning water lilies is their existence to aid/support/protect something removed from themselves.

    They help shade the shallow waters, keeping it cooler for the smaller underwater life as well as keeping them hidden from overhead preditors. At the same time, providing a place for smaller frogs to lounge.
