Tarot Card for the Day ~ July 24

July 23, 2009

Wheel of Fortune

Arthur’s Dream

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.  Some readers would say, hop on!  Make the most of your life, NOW!!!!

I agree with those interpretations, 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 special tweak to this, 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 if pay attention to the fact that the Wheel of Fortune is always in spin, and rememeber 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… 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 sense?  Top o’ the world to ya!  Permanently!!

Bright blessings, joy, success and light!
