Tarot Card for the Day ~ April 20

April 19, 2009

Seven of Spears

Arch of Twelve Kings

 

 

This card shows up pretty often on this blog.  The last time was early March.  So this time let’s all try paying attention, shall we?  It’s a great card for a Monday.  Or ANY day, if you’ll give it a real shot. 

The Arch referred to here is a monument created by Merlin’s magic in celebration of the defeat of twelve lesser kings who rebelled against Arthur early in his reign. 

[As I’ve asked before: do the twelve kings sound at all like the chaotic, nagging, self-defeating things we get stuck thinking about ourselves, our talents and abilities?  Or our in-laws?   Isn’t it wearying to find ourselves so often in rebellion against our higher and better selves?  What a waste of energy!]

So listen up, y’all!  I consider this to be the card of utter, total complete victory.  It may be victory after a long, tedious and/or hard-fought series of challenges.  But it’s victory nonetheless.

 

Some readers indicate the Seven of Spears to be a card of bravery and success.  Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, says it speaks of promoting unity for the common good and gaining the confidence of others, among other things.  If any of those indicators fit what you’re trying to be about lately, assume you’ve been given a green light and MOVE!

As we look at what this card is prompting, let me ask you to ask yourself:

if you were absolutely certain that you would

ultimately achieve the victory you wanted

− maybe after considerable time, maybe after considerable strategy and straining, heaving endeavor, maybe after having to release some things in order to ultimately gain what you want –

 

WHAT DO YOU WANT?  WHAT WOULD YOUR VICTORY BE? 

 

~ How long are you willing to work toward it? 

~ To go after it again and again and again? 

~ How will you strategize for it? 

~ With whom, and what will they bring to the table? 

~ What endeavors will you put forth to achieve it? 

~ What help will you seek, from Spirit and from those around you?

~ What would you give up, release, put aside to have it? 

 

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

What would YOUR victory be? 

 

Assume today is the magical day that –

if you answer those questions honestly

if you answer those questions fully

and begin to put into play the elements

of your responses –

you will move toward sure victory.

 

Bright blessings and victory!

 

P.S.  Just as a corollary:  what would you want to be remembered for one hundred years from now?
