Tarot Card for the Day ~ July 12

The Universe

The Giants’ Dance

Saw this one just over a month ago.  And it’s absolutely one of the most glorious, positive cards in the deck, so PLEASE know that such energy is available to and for you today.  Don’t waste the vibe by talking yourself out of what may be! 

The card in the Legend deck pictures a Goddess/dancer moving ecstatically free under the stars within Stonehenge (the Giants’ Dance, as it was once known).  Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the deck, finds this card to be a harbinger of liberation, the attainment of a long-sought goal, and the culmination of events, efforts and experiences from the past.

Some readers find assured success, emigration and a change of place to be in this card.  Others see a promise that the querent – the person having the reading done − will become all that she or he can if they are confident enough.

When this card comes up, I ask clients:

What would dancing free under the stars be for you? 

What would give you that sense of

freedom, of

security, of

elation, of

ecstasy, of

connection to beautiful and eternal and renewing Source and its most healing , empowering rhythms? 

 

Now:

what can you do

what will you do

to begin to give that to yourself? 

The Universe is your oyster.  It will give you back your fondest wishes, if you will be clear within yourself about those wishes, be true to those wishes, hold them close moment by moment, and honor them.

In our daily lives, we very often become wrapped up in the seeming necessities of the moment.  We lose track of our more profound, more eternal and inspiring hopes, wishes, beliefs − and powers. 

So, starting today, reconnect with that higher, more hopeful vision of yourself and your life.

KNOW that you have all that is necessary to bring it into being. 

This is a card of successful completion, harmony and lasting happiness. 

Believe!

Bright blessings!

Tarot Card for the Day ~ July 11

Strength

Percivale’s Vision

Haven’t seen this card since WAY back in March.  And it’s always a fortunate card to turn up.

Obviously, this card betokens its own name: Strength, as well as courage and vitality.  Plus magnanimity − both toward you and emanating from you – [so feel free to send your favorite Tarot reader a beautiful and rare Italian silk almost-anything.  Thank you].  The card can also indicate perhaps the most perfect light touch of luck.   

Really pretty good for a July Saturday!   So TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT!  ALL OF IT!!  (Otherwise what are you reading this for?)

Where was I?

The Strength card is one of the most utterly positive cards in the deck.  And it does offer a few useful, specific recommendations.

It is very important that you do not underestimate your physical and emotional strength at this time, or doubt the power and durability of your connection to Universal Life Force – God, Spirit, The Big G, Mr. Spielberg, or Whatever-You-Name-It. 

In other words, don’t down yourself out or assume less of yourself than you may actually be able to handle.  If opportunities come, REACH!  If challenges come, PUSH BACK!  Don’t just crawl under the bed and hide. 

Believe in your ability to succeed and to attain that which you most desire, particularly in areas of physical healing and achievement and/or emotional connection and healing. 

Draw on your inner strength, which is truly far greater than you give yourself credit for.

Like many of us, you may need to begin investing some ongoing effort toward actually identifying and functionalizing your connection to your inner strength.  Our culture ain’t so good about that, unless you have forced yourself to march to the same “inner drummer” as everybody else.  Get to know your OWN connection to Source, and work with it.  

We have in us the brilliant, beautiful and eternal power of stars.  It’s up to us to find and focus it.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, feels this card indicates having the strength and vitality to realize one’s goals, and also ambition tempered with serenity – a gentle strength Great energy for a wedding day!

 When I work with clients, I advise them about an additional level of meaning to this card in this particular deck.  I find this to be the card of the visionary the individual who can see higher, farther, and deeper than others can. 

 Sometimes, even more important, this is the person who can see (distinguish clearly) the trees for the forest and the forest for the trees.  So give yourself credit for being able to see things more clearly, and define things more accurately and truly, than the madding crowd around you. 

Own your ability to be the visionary who can, as Robert F. Kennedy so beautifully put it, “…dream things as they never were, and say why not?”  Or see things as they really are, and say, “Nuh-unh sucker!  We don’t play that way NO MORE!”

Trust in your strength and draw on it.  Manage it well when you must, but draw on it.  Believe in your success.  And let your vision of WHAT CAN BE guide you higher and higher beyond the norm of what has been.

Bright blessings, light, clarity and joy!
