I’ll take a shot. Do the pineapples represent abundance?November 29, 2006 at 11:02 pm #112306
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:

Oh man I’m so sorry, not the empress, the high priestess, you’re 100% correct! I was thinking high priestess and typed empress :oNovember 30, 2006 at 1:22 am #112311
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 :)November 30, 2006 at 4:12 am #112319
9 of Pentacles…
Does the snail symbolize patience?November 30, 2006 at 5:27 am #112322
The snail is out of place… be aware of what else going on around you?November 30, 2006 at 12:54 pm #112328Pam BKeymaster
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!November 30, 2006 at 2:57 pm #112334
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 :)December 2, 2006 at 1:49 pm #112466

Oh wow! I’m sorry! :o I thought I got it wrong!
I’ll post something later today. Sorry for the wait…December 2, 2006 at 7:26 pm #112480Clue: Water liliesDecember 3, 2006 at 3:29 am #112417
Ace of Cups?December 3, 2006 at 4:08 pm #112496
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?December 3, 2006 at 4:51 pm #112498
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.December 4, 2006 at 4:07 pm #112555
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.
