Loteria of the Day 07 10 2022
“La Sandia” The Watermelon
The sweetness of life. There is more than enough to go around. A family comes together to finally celebrate the hard-won harvest. They sit at a long table, passing the delicious watermelon around. Everyone seated at this table has a purpose and a place. As they bite into the soft, juicy fruit, each person experiences a feeling of pleasure. This card is very much about having more than enough to nurture yourself and the ones you care about. Good times are coming just around the corner. Make time to really appreciate this auspicious occasion.
What are Mexican Loteria cards?
Originally, Mexican Loteria cards were used in a bingo-like game. They were not used as a divination tool until recently when the main supplier, Don Clemente, made the cards more uniform. The deck, consisting of 54 cards generally depicts art and symbolism present in Mexican culture. These cards are usually aimed at children or for general entertainment, but modern divination researchers, such as Garth Tardy, contributed to their development. Most of my information comes from this website:
I use the Loteria cards as a way of understanding how I can face hurdles in my life. I feel that they compliment the tarot, oracle, and affirmation decks well because they provide a different perspective on the theme of the day.
