Tarot Card for the Day ~ April 6

April 5, 2009

Two of Spears

Bedivere and Kay

 

Another card we had just about 2 weeks ago?  And also a card that a recent client really needed a lot of help working with.  She couldn’t seem to understand that my basic premise for what the card was about  is something that could possibly be. 

 

It’s of those cards where my intuitive guidance has me going off in a different direction than the standard interpretation which is offered.  [Yeah, again, thenk yew.]

 

Many readers say things like, riches, fortune, magnificence.

 

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, writes of proving one’s capability to manage a large project; planning for the future; exerting authority; riches and success , using all one’s talents to achieve a communal vision.

 

So if those issues are on your mind today, accept this info as an indication that you’re IN TUNE and placing your energy in the right place at the right time.  (And if you’re not up for riches and success, FortheLuvvaGod, Goddess, The Universe, Anybody, CALL ME.  We gotta talk!  216-371-3433.)

 

However…

 

When this card turns up for a client, I find myself telling them,

 

I don’t know what your family life is like.  It could be great.  It could suck robins in the springtime.  Regardless, the Two of Spears is saying

 

~ It’s time for you to create a family of spirit that is even closer to you than family of blood.  [That was the part that my client was having trouble with.  She could not envision EVER possibly being closer to someone than to her family.  All her family.  However bizarre they might be.  All I can say is, it’s not impossible, and it’s often healthy to have others in your life who are closer to you than the incredible Krazees God decides to give you for some of your initial life lessons.]  

 

~ You need to begin seeking and finding – perhaps one by one – a group of people who, because of the commonality of intentions, goals, hopes, spiritual path, etc. will be as close to you as anyone could possibly be, as you will be to them.

 

So spend some time thinking about what it would be like to have a circle of people in your life who

 

~ would always have your back,

~ would always be able to hear your darkest secrets

    and continue to see the Light in you,

    as you would do for them

~ would seek to remind you of the highest and

    best in yourself, lovingly and always

 

Then go about creating that circle.  Slowly.  Intentionally.  With discretion.  But get going.

 

Know what YOUR family of spirit would be like.  Seek them.  Find them.  Let them help you change your world.

 

Bright blessings and joyful meetings!

 

Quote for the Day ~ I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?  ~ John Lennon

Tarot Card for the day ~ April 5

Three of Cups

The Dressing of the

Sacred Spring

 

This card showed up exactly two weeks ago.  As I said then:

 

A nice, Sunday kinda card.  And a good card to take some time on a lazy Sunday to contemplate and embrace more fully in your life.

 

First off, please remember that threes in any Tarot deck are power cards, or rather, that the issue the card is addressing is one of power, even if it doesn’t seem so on the surface.  Typically, a three would offer counsel such as

 

~ beware of power games,

~ be prepared for power struggles,

~ watch out for failure to own your power 

   or, better,

   OWN

   YOUR

   POWER

  FULLY

  NOW

~ have a care against disempowerment

   in any area of life, whether by the action

   of others,  or by your own action

   or inaction 

~ empower yourself

~ empower those you love and believe in

~ accept the challenge of owing all of

   what you are and who you can be

 

Simple, really.

 

The Three of Cups is a card of blessing.  It is very positive in the potential it bespeaks.  It is a card of empowerment, fruitful completion and healing.  How are these things to be fostered and achieved?    By engaging in heartfelt, beautiful and joyful sacred celebration with those of like mind and soul. 

 

Please, today, take some time, even if just a moment, to connect with those in your circle who are positive, supportive and helpful − who inspire hope and joy and all good things in your life – and even if it’s just by phone, even if it’s only for a minute. 

 

Share something or share about something you can celebrate together.  Don’t forget to include your Spirit Guides, guardian angels, absent gurus, loving friends or even family members who have passed from this realm as you open to celebration.  And let yourself be empowered by what transpires.

 

Remember that the Celts believed (and still believe) the Divine is present in every place, everything  and everyone – including you and what you are doing now, and everywhere you will go and everything you will do today.  So GIVE YOURSELF THAT!

 

Own your power.  Help empower others.  Seek others whose goodness and LIGHT is empowering to you.  And do it in a joyful, celebratory way.  Today!  (Perfect excuse for celebration with good people!)

 

Bright blessings, joy and CELEBRATION!

 

Quote for the Day: 

King Arthur: Old woman.
Dennis: Man.
King Arthur: Man, sorry. What knight lives in that castle over there?
Dennis: I’m 37.
King Arthur: What?
Dennis: I’m 37. I’m not old.
King Arthur: Well I can’t just call you “man”.
Dennis: Well you could say “Dennis”.
King Arthur: I didn’t know you were called Dennis.
Dennis: Well you didn’t bother to find out did you?
King Arthur: I did say sorry about the “old woman”, but from behind you looked…
Dennis: What I object to is you automatically treat me like an inferior.
King Arthur: Well I am king.
Dennis: Oh, king eh? Very nice. And how’d you get that, eh? By exploiting the workers. By hanging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society.

King Arthur: I am your king.
Woman: Well I didn’t vote for you.
King Arthur: You don’t vote for kings.
Woman: Well how’d you become king then?
[Angelic music plays… ]
King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king.
Dennis: [interrupting] Listen, strange women lyin’ in ponds distributin’ swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
