Tarot Card for the Day ~ September 4

Seven of Cups

The Questing Beast

 Saw this card only a month ago.  That says to me, once again:

We really need to work on joyfulness in our lives. 

So stop reading this, have a coupla mimosas or an Irish coffee or some Strawberry Cough pancakes or a… oh, wait.  That’s for a different blog.

Anyway, we really need to work on joyfulness in our lives.

This is another card where my interpretation may diverge a tidly, tadly [or rather substantial] bit from that of other readers.  And I think that’s just fine.

Some see the Seven of Cups as recommending opening to visions through contemplation.  [Mustn’t argue with that, ever, unless you’re ready to have the Storm Troopers of Light come after ya.  And gold lamé jump suits first thing in the morning is more than I can handle.] 

Some readers find the card dictates that the querent (questioner) has a choice to make, and must decide upon one of various options.

 Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, sees this card as betokening – among other things − fantasy, whims or perhaps a bizarre turn of events.  Right up my alley.

I see the Seven of Cups as the card of utter, total complete joy and joyful abandon

 There may be some need to stay at least a bit grounded, so you don’t go completely off into the realm of fantasy in a Wow, look at all the pretty colors    ҉    I’ll betcha I can too live on air and rainbows    ҉    right on down the primrose path kinda scenario.

But this is also the card of Fairy Favors, creativity and clear vision around attaining true desires.  (And, as I said to a client in a recent reading, it really does imply that you’re going to do some meaningful work on defining and owning what your TRUE desires in this life actually are!)

And this is a great, great time to become reacquainted with the Green Fay Friends down the garden way, and re-earn the Fairy Favors they offer.

So go after the joy. Seek it, quest after it, demand it!  And for pity’s sake, at least be sure you can actually define what it is − or what it would be, if you had your druthers − for you.

Let yourself renew your belief in and commitment to your happiness, and be open to the myriad magical ways the universe may have to bring it to you.  Let yourself be open to surprises and miracles in that regard.  And open to a little Fairy Magic today!

Joy!  Joy!  Joy!

And Joy! 

Bright blessings!  And don’t forget joy!

Quote for the day:  Joy is not in things; it is in us.   ~ Richard  Wagner

 Today’s Weather:  Minor wit.  Percussive bowdlerizations and miniscule cabbage turnips.  So carry a wolverine.

On This Date:  1781 – Los Angeles, California, is founded as El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora La Reina de los Ángeles de Porciúncula (The Village of Our Lady, the Queen of the Angels of Porziuncola) by 44 Spanish settlers.  [Gee.  And Porziuncola woulda had such a nice ring to it.]

    “Joy is not in things; it is in us.” Indeed! I don’t think we can see this card or hear this message often enough.

    I was just outside gazing into the full moon and petting my Tabby….and counting my blessings. The pose of the questing beast reminds me of the long, relaxed stretches of my new “little lion”, a surprise from the universe.

    I’m reminded of a church song I heard years ago…Joy, joy is all around us; joy, joy is everywhere. Joy, joy is all around us…. Joy, joy is everywhere.

    ~ Thank you for your joyful, magical words! Donna

    ~ ~ Thanks so much. Donna
