Artist: Molly Harrison
Family, harmony, stability, happiness
“I chose golden hot air balloons to represent the ten cups. The circus tent is the family’s home. The family stands close, representing attachment, love and emotional fulfillment. I did not include some of the typical elements, such as the rainbow, river and trees because I wanted to focus on the characters in the family. The colorful balloons being held by the family members represent the brightness and opportunities that life has to offer. The mother holds a decorative heart on a ribbon, loosely wrapped around her fingers, to represent the committed love of family.”
A circus family stands a distance from the big top, enjoying the sunset and the chance to spend some quiet time together. The happy couple can’t bear to be apart, arms wrapped around each other, as their playful, affectionate children stand with them, hand in hand, the elder daughter reaching up to her parents. Above their head the sunset has lit up the sky in a rainbow of colors, and a crescent moon appears through the clouds. Ten golden balloons fly past, resembling goblets in the sky, suggesting that this happy family is blessed by the very heavens.
This card epitomizes a happy ending – your emotional journey has resulted in a comfortable life, with a harmonious family. It is not an ostentatious card, suggesting riches, instead showing a different, more personal wealth. It is now time to stop and enjoy the many blessings you have been given.
