This morning I drew three cards with a specific question in mind: “What do I need to be aware of today?”
08 The Coffin
30 The Lily
05 The Tree
In a general sense, these cards show peace and contentment following a transformative experience that led to growth. That’s nice, but a little vague, and more than a little fluffy.
If I look at the specifics, I can’t help but see a passing. The combination of symbols: coffin, lily and tree scream funeral to me. If I read the Lily as the key card, it can represent an older person, most likely a male. Coffin + Lily represents old age, dying. Lily + Tree shows ailments related to aging. Coffin + Tree indicates a serious illness. I’d say an older man will pass from an illness related to aging, or basically from old age.
In the past I would have read the Tree falling last as a good sign of improved health, and the sign of a serious illness over come, but I’m trying to use the center card as the key, and not rely on order or position.
Is there a more cheerful interpretation here that I’m missing?
