We are using the Deck of Heroes Tarot this week. My review of this deck is available at the Examiner.
|8 of Pentacles / 6 Lovers|
Deck of Heroes
8 of Pentacles - The man in the card is intent on doing a job, and from the looks of it, a repetitious job. I've never really thought much of the produced product in this card, but here you see it is the same item created multiple times.
From the companion book: "The consummate craftsman in difference to the artist... the concentration to repeat a process with unmatched precision."
6 Lovers - The man carries his woman up the stairs sprinkled with rose petals toward... This card usually perceived as the relationship card is really deeper than such. Yes, it normally depicts a romantic scene of sorts, especially in this version. But, it is also about choices and commitment.
From the companion book: "a commitment to the choice."
I see a marriage of sorts within the combination of these two cards. On a romantic relationship tone, most married couples will agree the union is a lot of repetition. On a career note, most people end up feeling married to their job.
What do you see in this tarot combination?
