Tarot Card for the Day ~ August 15

The Dragon

Symbol of the Pendragon Kings

Wow!  A card that has never appeared on this blog before.  And one that does not exist in any other Tarot deck!

Okay.  In the spirit of full disclosure, I guess I should say that, in some decks, an extra card − beyond those in a standard Tarot deck – would probably be treated like the Joker in a deck of playing cards.  Well, not this card.  Not in this deck.

The card portrays a beautiful, winged dragon holding a scepter.  He is surrounded by apple blossoms − apples are a Celtic symbol of immortality, a nod to the “King who was and is to be.”

So listen up [lookee here, whatever], because this is a very, very important card.

It promises







                    IF YOU OWN YOUR POWER!

Regular visitors to this blog know there are several cards which betoken power struggles or owning power and ability in specific ways.

Today’s card says Hey!  You!  Everything you could hope for!  All that is good and kind and loving that you could wish!  It will ALL be yours, fully, joyfully, healthily

                     IF YOU OWN YOUR POWER!

So, today:  Spend some time dreamweaving what your life would be like if everything were absolutely, totally, perfectly the way you always wished it would be. 

Where would you live? 

How would you live? 

Who would you hang out with? 

What would you give to the world? 

Who would you be?



How do you need to more fully

Believe in yourself?

Believe in your ability to create what you’ve always longed for?

Own your power to create it fully in the ways you’ve dreamed?





                         OWN YOUR POWER!


Brightest, BRIGHTEST blessings!

Tarot Card for the Day ~ August 14

King of Shields


As those of you who were with the blog in mid-April − the last time this card showed up − know, the King of Shields is what I call the card of the Good King.

This is the king who really knows what’s going on in his kingdom − how the crops in every county are doing (if not how every farmer is doing), what his knights are up to (and what they should be up to), the state of repair of the entire kingdom’s major walls, bridges and roads, etc. 

He’s perfectly comfortable in the limelight, although he does not seek it for himself and does not miss it when it isn’t on him. 

He is simply the good king who understands that his mission is to take care of his kingdom and take care of his subjects so that they generally can take care of themselves.

The hard lesson he has learned is that there will always be more things asked of him than he can possibly fulfill, more things in need of attention than he can possibly do, even by delegating. 

He has, therefore, come to understand and be comfortable with the necessity of allocating his resources, caring and effort in such a way as will provide the greatest return and benefit to himself and especially to his people. 

In his realm, it ISN’T the squeakiest wheel that gets the grease; it’s the wheel whose repair is most significant and valuable to him, his people and his land.

So, beginning today, how can you come to understand better the myriad workings of your kingdom

What, in fact, IS your kingdom?  And how do you need to give yourself − in a functional, practical way − permission to attend to that which is really MOST IMPORTANT rather than that which seems MOST URGENT (or most annoying) in order to keep your kingdom’s balance, harmony and prosperity at the forefront of your rule? 

What do you need to let go of, or let go fallow, or let go to hell, for that matter, in order for the stuff you truly came here to do to get done and get done well?  

So ask yourself, “What is really important?  Now how do I attend to that?”

Bright blessings!
