Tarot Card for the Day ~ June 8

June 7, 2009

Ten of Shields

Camelot

Very interesting card.  Always a very interesting card − at least when I have seen it.   It last showed up for us around the beginning of March. 

For those of you who are regulars to the Blog, you know I’m about to say something like

Tens in any Tarot deck betoken the end of one cycle and the beginning of another, or even the end of one way of life and the beginning of another.  So, if I were reading for you today and this card came up, I’d ask:

How do the things you have been experiencing – and more importantly, how do the things you have begun to long for in life just now – represent a strong message to you that you must allow yourself to acknowledge the end of a cycle and the powerful potential for you to move into something wonderful and new, even miraculous? 

How can you keep that in front of you, and not just for today? 

How can you let today be part of something new that you BEGIN TODAY but may continue to pursue for some time to come?

Some readers see the Ten of Shields as gain, riches, or having to do with family abode.  I certainly never want to argue with an interpretation that betokens good things.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck I use, indicates this card is about  affluence, riches, inheritance, and possibly clan gatherings.  As my grandmother often used to say about clan gatherings, “I’m glad to see you come.  And I’m even happier to see you go!”

I see the Ten of Shields as saying:

Time for a change. 

Possibly time for a BIG change. 

In pursuing that change, don’t look for the right person to help bring it about. 

Look for the right groups and circles and organizations – possibly new ones to you – to become part of.

Be very careful to evaluate the GROUP energy or the GROUP dynamics of where you are and where you need to be. 

If you were interviewing for a new job (or a new spiritual circle, or new club), it wouldn’t be anywhere NEAR enough to evaluate whether it felt like your prospective new boss (or leader, or pastor, or teacher, whatever) would be good to work with.  

You’d really need to explore and be sure that the energy of the greater team, group, circle or organization felt positive, clean, imbued with integrity, excitement, spirit – whatever you need a boost of right now.

So

Be open to the possibility that some element of your life is grinding its way to an end. 

Understand that it may simply be TIME for that to happen – no judgment attached to the feeling.  Just necessity in your evolution.

Then look for the right GROUP energy to become part of to be supportive of you as you move onward and upward in your life.

Bright blessings and REALLY GOOD group connections!

Quote for the day:   “Jaime had never realized that trees made a sound when they grew, and no-one else had realized it either, because the sound is made over hundreds of years in waves of twenty-four hours from peak to peak. Speed it up, and the sound a tree makes is vrooom.” ~ Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett, from Good Omens
