"When thou seest an eagle,
thou seest a portion of genius;
lift up thy head"
William Blake (1757 - 1827)
This blog is part of a Blog Train,
where 37 Tarot bloggers all wrote on the same topic and linked to each other.

For this round of our Tarot Blog Hop,
all bloggers joined together to answer the question:
"Which Pentacles card of which deck
do you relate to right now?"
As I sit here with my feathered friend on my shoulder,
my answer is not hard to find.
We adopted Harley as a baby shortly after 9/11, when our house seemed too quiet and the world felt numb. She has brought much healing and joy to our home with her gentleness.
And those who know me know how closely I bond with birds and have studied birds since my youth, including memorizing the birdsongs and chips of over 300 Northeastern (to the USA) wild birds. I've used this skill to help raise money for the Audubon Society.
Yes, I am the crazy bird lady next door.
For years, the 9 of Pentacles from the Fenestra Tarot (shown below, bottom right) has been my Avatar on a the Aeclectic Tarot forum.
Above Decks: Universal Waite Tarot, Gilded Tarot
Mystic Dreamer Tarot, Fenestra Tarot
So as I sit this sunny summer morning, with my freshly brewed tea and my hair still uncombed, my nutty-fragranced avian friend and I share a familiar cuddle together.
I wonder whether you, too, might find echoes of this abundant card in our moment?
