Tarot Card for the Day ~ April 15

April 14, 2009

Wheel of Fortune

Arthur’s Dream


Hmmm…  This card showed up just a week or so ago.  That would lead me to believe that either


~ people are having trouble believing they can be on top of the world

~ people are uncomfortable giving themselves permission to read, accept and begin to act upon the subtle vibrations they are picking up in situations around them

~ people are trying to just stop the wheel in its spinning so they can stay where they think they’ll be comfortable and maybe safe (maybe)

~ nobody read my post last time anyway


Let’s try again.


In pretty much any reading, Wheel of Fortune augurs well, especially for the immediate future.  It usually betokens a happy change of fortune and the beginning of a positive cycle.  


I agree with that interpretation, but my work with clients has prompted me to put a particular spin on that energy.  When the Wheel turns up –no pun intended − I usually say something like,


Look.  Take a moment.  Pay attention here.  You’re finally in a position to really be on top of the world, in the way you have wanted to be.  So first of all, let yourself believe in that.  Let yourself KNOW it.  Do what you need to do to move beyond doubt.  Doubt kills more dreams than anything anyone else could possibly do.


A caveat, though.  The card says that over the years, and perhaps particularly in the recent past, you have learned tough lessons in hard ways.  One positive result of that is that you’ve developed a refined ability to pick up on and read the subtle vibrations of a situation – of situations in general – to a much greater extent than most people have. 


This is a very effective tool for you right now. 


Honoring it, using it will be to your advantage.  Get it?


In fact, giving yourself permission to read and trust and use what you perceive about those subtle vibes (in an intelligent, I’m not gonna overload my mouth and blow my own ass up kinda way) is key to keeping yourself on top of the world.  It will help you pay attention to the fact that the Wheel of Fortune is always in spin, but you can move along with it at the right moments and in the right rhythm. By doing so you can keep yourself from losing your footing and being dumped into the moat.”


[One of these days I’ll have to do an article listing some of the excuses I’ve heard, and, uh, used, for not going with what we KNOW from reading the vibrations of a situation.  They’re all right up there with, “My dog ate my homework.”]  


There’s an old shamanic saying: “You know what you know.  Do what you know.”  With the Wheel of Fortune, I’d tweak that a touch to say,


“You know what you know.  Believe in what you know. 


Act − in a skillful, savvy way − on what you know.”


Make a little more sense this time?  Top o’ the world to ya!


Bright blessings, joy, success and light!

Quote for the Day   Let’s think the unthinkable, let’s do the undoable, let’s prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.
