Tarot Card for the Day ~ June 2

Nine of Spears

Wind Harps of War

Hmmm… A card we saw just a month ago.  And just a month before that.  [Hope you won’t be bored.]

Traditional readings for this card run along the lines of strength in preparedness for battle or strength in the opposition you will be able to mount if you choose to,  delays, things like that.

In Legend, the Arthurian Tarot, Anna-Marie Ferguson finds such meanings as anticipating hostility, preparing for upheaval, outwitting an adversary, and foresight – the last two of course being my favorites.

The Nine of Spears as I perceive it has two principal meanings to guide you. 

First, this card indicates

You have a very capable, solid intuitive “early warning system.”    

It gives you good, actionable information in advance that there might be, for example, problems somewhere over the horizon on a particular project, or that a person is not quite what he is presenting himself to be (in a way that ain’t good). 

BUT, this card also says,

you’re most likely to second-guess yourself out of

honoring and thus using the very fine and helpful guidance you have received. 

Stop that!  Right now.  RightNOW.

If you’re going to take the trouble to read a Tarot posting, I’d guess it’s because you find intuition to be a valid tool that can help in your daily affairs.  Well, if MY intuition is good enough, so is yours ~ or it can be, once you stop second-guessing yourself out of what you’ve been given and start trusting and working with your inner guidance.

Second, this card says

“Don’t get too comfortable where you are ‘living;’ you may choose to move.” 

I put living in quotation marks because Nine of Spears doesn’t just mean that you may sell your cottage in Chagrin Falls and move to a condo overlooking Erie in Lakewood − although you might. 

This card can also indicate a big change in your personal philosophy, your spirituality, or your understanding about what physical health means to you and what you must do to maintain or enhance it. 

So keep an intuitive eye peeled for glimmerings of those kinds of changes that come your way beginning today.

Own and honor your intuition.  It’s one of the finest gifts Spirit offers humans. 

And let yourself explore whether there isn’t someplace better for you to reside ~ physically or philosophically.

Bright blessings and blissings and all good things!

Tarot Card for the Day ~ June 1

The Sun

Lleu

 

There is so much hope in this card!

And that’s something we can all use lately, especially on a Monday!

Anyway, this is a great card for an almost-summer day.  And it’s a card that has come up frequently since at least March (3/12, 4/12, 5/14, 6/1), so it would behoove us all [you BET, even me] to pay some attention.

It’s especially aimed at those − like I am, without any question or possible hope of plausible deniability − who would be deliriously happy with a card that says, “Grab a double espresso or two.  Crawl into a corduroy-lined hole till that bright, shiny thing in the sky dims a bit.  Then check to see if it’s safe to come out.”

Unh –UH!  NO!NO!NO! 

[God, Neal will you PLEASE turn down the print?  You’re giving yourself a headache.  Sorry.]

On this Monday, it’s also appropriate for people [again, like me] who have been saying things like, “This isn’t working.  It really, really isn’t working.  What am I doing wrong?  In fact, what am I doing? This just doesn’t seem to be working.”

Well, pay attention.  On this Monday morning, the Universal Sun will be cruising just outside all our bedroom windows, saying,

“Hey!  HEY!!!!!!!! 

“The sweet woodruff is up and scenting the air!  The roses and peonies have burst into bloom.  The robins and sparrows are screaming for seed.   The hawks are interested.  The squirrels are chasing each other and stashing peanuts in your car’s air filter [that really happened to me]. The cocker spaniel is chasing the squirrels, and wondering why you don’t join in the fun.

“It really is amazingly beautiful out here!!  And there is so much AMAZING potential if we just open to it and connect!  LOOOOOOVE Your World!  Love Your Self!  LOOOOOOOOVE Your LIFE!  Yesterday’s gone.  Go after you most beautiful and beloved wishes!  Nooooow!!!!!!!!!!

Okay? 

What?

A few specifics?

Okay.  Fine.  Be that way.

It doesn’t take too much work to figure out that The Sun betokens joy, light, and clarity of vision.  Not to mention material happiness and general contentmentA really lovely offering for any day, no?  So OWN that!

For me, The Sun is one of the two great wish cards of the deck. 

It says,

“You shall have happiness, health, wealth, peace and all good things

IF you are clear within yourself about what your wishes truly are

(now, not yesterday, not last year, not a decade ago)

AND you hold true to those wishes, moment by moment by moment.” 

After all, the Universe can only give back to you what you put out as vibration.

Right? 

And the Universe will judge that in part by that to which you GIVE YOUR ATTENTION, moment by moment by moment.  Right?  Right?  Right!

(By the way, in some interpretations, The Sun betokens an engagement. So if you’ve wanted to pop the question… just be sure it’s what you REALLY WISH!)

What is your wish? 

What are your wishes? 

How can you stay conscious of those wishes as you go through your day? 

How can you honor those wishes? 

Hold your wishes as your focus − even as you go through all the activity, priorities and sheer STUFF you must attend to as you do what you must to deal with your day. 

How can you LOVE YOURSELF and LOVE YOUR LIFE? 

See the beauty. 

NOW!!!

Brightest, blessings and superb wishcraft!
