Earth Wisdom Tarot Sacred Art

Guardian of Air, in process

in Art, Gaian Tarot

GuardianairsketchWhat a beautiful morning.  Bright sunshine, a bit of a breeze, warm but not too warm.  I’ve already given Craig a lift to the walk-on ferry and made 3 quarts of green smoothies, with peaches from the peninsula and spinach from the farm up the hill. I’ve whipped up my first batch of gluten-free corn muffins.  (And they’re delicious. Yay!!)

I’ll be spending most of the weekend on my deck with colored pencils and iPod at hand.  My goal is to finish the Guardian of Air by the time I go to bed Sunday night.  Wish me luck!

The Guardians correspond to the Queens in traditional Tarot decks. Just like the Gaian Children and Explorers, there are two females and two males of each.  (I just love mixing up the gender roles.)

Guardians, by my definition, are at midlife, are productive and actively involved in their community. They “guard” the issues defined by their suit. I see the qualities of Air as:  communication, clarity, making decisions, thought, research, plans, strategy, writing, breath, prayer, meditation and sound.  I’m sure there’s more; that’s just off the top of my head. And so here we have the Guardian of Air, aka the Queen of Swords.

Thoughtful, sparkling comments. . .
