Last night I came across this poem by Robert Frost in a book.
Can you guess which two tarot cards it made me think of?
Well, what card did the poem call up for you?
It is quite subjective. I thought of Fool first but there are elements of disks and wands here as well.
I thought 5 disks (the snow and keeping going no matter what) and 3 Wands (mainly because of a dream I had once).
I love the association between poetry and tarot!
I agree with ‘Quiet’ up above, and also love all associations with Tarot… music, paintings, poems, etc…
I had to add though, wouldn’t the Tower energy be in there somewhere too?
I would go Tower, then Fool…
Oh! I forgot to reply to Quiet! Thanks for the prod Liana. 🙂
Well, it’s been so long I had to go and read the poem again. For me, it made me think first of the Tower, especially this bit:
“But just to ask us who we think we are
Insisting always on our own way so.”
A blow to the ego as it were. Then, the second half of the poem made me think of the Chariot:
“And yet she knows obstruction is in vain:
We will not be put off the final goal”
Interesting takes! I thought first of the Wheel of Fortune with the Sphinx sitting on top the Wheel:
“Stop the World, I want to get off,” someone said, maybe Castenada and Don Juan. I want to get off the small circling I do to not avail. What obstructions I see as huge are really small in the scheme of things.
