Tarot Card for the Day ~ April 11

April 10, 2009

Eight Of Spears

The White Hart


As I have said before [and I now realize I say with conspicuous regularity], “Ahhhhhh, yes.  Another card where my interpretation veers semi-wildly off in a direction of its own.” 


My offering about this card is based on a Shamanic Journey I once did asking about its meaning.  (To find out more about Journeying, see the Category of Shamanism  in the blog.) 


Other readers give this card meanings like speed, action, movement toward opportunity, a test of skill, and an adventure.  It’s considered a good omen.  So if any of those are what you need today, by all means grab ’em and run!     


I see the Eight of Spears as the card of utter, total complete liberation.  It’s an indicator that it is time for you to explore for yourself:


how it is that you may give yourself

more freedom to

go where you want to go

when you want to go there

by the means and

at the speed of your own choosing.


Given that, you KNOW my questions if you were my client would start with something like,


SO!  Bubbla!  How are you keeping yourself confined? 


How are you confining yourself in ways that are no longer appropriate for who you have become and what you may give to the world? 

How can you open yourself to a liberation − in your thinking, your behavior, your belief in what is possible and your understanding of how you may go about achieving that possibility?


Please remember that one way in which you may need to, um, try something different is to just freakin’ go for it.  It may be a little uncomfortable, but at least it’s owning who you are and freeing yourself up so you can move along YOUR path.   


How can you liberate yourself, your creativity, your spirit today?


Bright, free, inspiring blessings!


Quote for the day:    I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper and the old men and old women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer.  ~ Brendan Behan
