The Flip Side of The Coin…

I’ve always been quite partial to this card and seen it as wonderfully flowing energy of give and take… and in my head, it does roll around like this…

But interesting things happen sometimes in conversations and you get a whole new view through another’s eyes…

A year or so ago… I don’t know… I don’t remember time… I forget the when, but I always remember the where and the who… I was sat with someone who was new to tarot and they were flicking through my deck…

Who are the deniers?

Pardon?

The deniers…

No… not deniers… deniers as in coins… French for coins…

No… they are deniers… They deny things…

What are they denying?

Well… you see that big parachute full of holes that they are holding… well they have both made holds in both their side and the other person’s side and they both deny they did anything and blame the other… yet the biggest holes are the ones that they made themselves in their own side…

I listened in interest and pondered on how I’d managed to raise such a cynical son… and quietly blamed his opposite view to mine as his Pisces being poles apart from my Virgo…

Yes…That’s an interesting perspective but I like my version better I said and pushed it out of mind…

Or so I thought… more accurate would be to say to the back of my mind as every so often, it does bubble up back to the surface…

Lol… it just occurs to me that the inside of my head may in fact be a lava lamp… as it morphed back the other day in yet another shape…

I looked at that card and I saw a pool table… the green baize and 6 pockets… or were they balls…

Pockets? Balls? Mmmm…. If you want to be back in the pocket rather than out of pocket then that’s something to need to work out… you gotta be careful where you sink your balls!!

I looked at those 6 of P players and I saw a couple of classy hustlers…

Not all games are played fairly or by the rules…

And sometimes it’s not so much players… as there being a player and the played…

My Pisces son’s view seems far less cynical now… I guess it’s because of the two fish that know how to swim both ways…

So… Heads up givers…

Watch out for the take and take… and don’t get taken by the sharks in the pool…
