2013-12-22 Iaru – Heaven



Today’s card, Iaru, is a papyrus thicket. It is the glyph for Heaven, or the Elysian Fields – as the Greeks called it. Papyrus grows at the edge of the river and provides a perfect habitat for fish and waterfowl. The cool breezes and sunshade make it a popular place for Ancient Egyptians to fish and enjoy their time off. The Iaru calls to you to think about your own leisure time. What do you do for fun? How much time do you take to let your mind rest and your body be active? What activity is it that you would like to do forever? The Ancients knew that eternity lasts much longer than a lifetime.
