9. The Bouquet
“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”
The Bouquet Card Meaning
When the Bouquet comes to mind, I think of a simple bouquet of flowers. Now, a bouquet of flowers is not life changing, but it does invoke a sense of momentary joy. The flowers themself represent the fleeting beauty of a picked flower. The beauty doesn’t last forever, but in the moment, it brings a smile.
When the Bouquet appears in your reading, it is often representing beauty, a gift, or some small joy. In some cases, it also represents what is on the surface, such as the ego. Look to the surrounding cards to see what this gift or beauty is pertaining to. And don’t forget to smile a little - although the Bouquet’s joy may be fleeting, it is still beautiful and a gift to celebrate.
