Tarot Card for the Day ~ February 24

February 23, 2009


Percivale’s Vision



This card showed up for the Daily Tarot Card on February 3rd or so, and just about a month before that. 


So, first of all, take a look at the cycles of your life and see what’s been going on that might benefit from an infusion of the wisdom of this card. 


Then, as you review what the card is about, ask yourself whether that situation, circumstance, whatever has become a constant that needs to be attended to, OR whether you need to look at why it may be circling back NOW.  AGAIN!


Obviously, this card betokens its own name: Strength, as well as courage and vitality.  Plus magnanimity − both toward you and emanating from you – [so feel free to send your favorite Tarot reader an expensive Italian silk almostanything].  The card can also indicate perhaps the most perfect light touch of luck.   


Really pretty good for a February Tuesday!  TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT!  ALL OF IT!!  (Otherwise what are you reading this for?)


Where was I?


The Strength card is one of the most utterly positive cards in the deck.  And it does offer a few useful, specific recommendations.


It is very important that you do not underestimate your physical and emotional strength at this time, or doubt the power and durability of your connection to Universal Life Force – God, Spirit, The Big G, Mr. Spielberg, or Whatever-You-Name-It.  In other words, don’t down yourself out or assume less of yourself than you may actually be able to handle.  If opportunities come, REACH!  If challenges come, PUSH BACK!  Don’t just crawl under the bed and hide. 


Believe in your ability to succeed and to attain that which you most desire, particularly in areas of physical healing and achievement and/or emotional healing. 


Draw on your inner strength, which is truly far greater than you give yourself credit for.


Like many of us, you may need to begin investing some ongoing effort toward actually identifying and functionalizing your connection to your inner strength.  Our culture ain’t so good about that, unless you have forced yourself to march to the same “inner drummer” as everybody else.  Get to know your OWN connection to Source, and work with it.  


We have in us the brilliant, beautiful and eternal power of stars.  It’s up to us to find and focus it.


When I work with clients, I advise them about an additional level of meaning to this card in this particular deck.  I find this to be the card of the visionary – the individual who can see higher, farther, and deeper than others can. 


Sometimes, even more important, this is the person who can see (distinguish clearly) the trees for the forest and the forest for the trees.  So give yourself credit for being able to see things more clearly, and define things more accurately and truly, than the madding crowd around you. 


Own your ability to be the visionary who can, as Robert F. Kennedy so beautifully put it, “…dream things as they never were, and say why not?”  Or see things as they really are, and say, “Nuh-unh sucker!  We don’t play that way NO MORE!”


Trust in your strength and draw on it.  Manage it well when you must, but draw on it.  Believe in your success.  And let your vision of WHAT CAN BE guide you higher and higher beyond the norm of what is.


Bright blessings, light, clarity and joy!


Quote for the day:    Of course, it is very important to be sober when you take an exam. Many worthwhile careers in the street-cleansing, fruit-picking and subway-guitar-playing industries have been founded on a lack of understanding of this simple fact.  ~ Terry Pratchett
