Tarot Card for the Day ~ August 9

August 8, 2009


The Cauldron of Annwn

We’ve only seen this card twice in more than ten months of turns.  And it’s one that many of us [especially yours truly] could do well to work with.

This card says directly how it would have you go about the day:  

temperately, calmly, easily,

neither striving to leap over tall buildings in a single bound

nor being a slug and hiding under the covers till nightfall. 

It’s a card that counsels you to guard against those little wee tendencies to go to extremes − even positive ones.  Seek moderation today, and patience, and perhaps even a touch of diplomacy, no matter how much you might wish to just nuke the silly fools and be done with it!

When this card shows up in a reading, I often suggest that the client may be on the cusp of a substantial change.

BUT the way to best and most positively bring the change into being is to go about the transformation slowly, thoughtfully:

braiding or blending together the old with the new until, over an appropriate time, the new becomes who you are and what you do. 

It’s a card of making profound and helpful changes slowly, by not throwing the baby out with the bathwater.  

So, let yourself explore how you would like your life to be, and how you would wish to move in positive new directions. 

Then stop and honestly take stock of who you are, where you are and how you have gotten there.   Specifically acknowledge the good parts, the successful aspects, the skills, abilities and characteristics that are worth keeping and using and developing as you go forward.  And blend them into the new you that is coming onto being.

Bright blessings and timely, comfortable and comforting emergings!
