Tarot Card for the Day ~ September 7

Three of Spears

The Horse Fair



Hmm…  Seems like this is the third or fourth card to cycle back from just about a month ago.  Probably some meaning to that.  


But this is a holiday, so if you wanna philosophize upon said possible meaning, you just go right on ahead yerself Ms. Pippi Longstocking Perkyperson you! 


As for the rest of us…


As I have said others times in this blog, I’m not utterly above spooking clients when this card comes up.  I glance at it darkly, lean forward to scan it more carefully, and whisper, “OhBugger!” under my breath. 


Or I say, “Ahhh… This is a card of very special inspiration


[Then I count to fifteen while thinkinking:  “Let ’em chew on THAT for a while!  Nyah—Nyah! Tee hee!”]




Once again, please remember that threes in any Tarot deck are power cards, or rather, that the issue the card is addressing is one of power, even if it doesn’t seem so on the surface.  Typically, a three would counsel things like


~ beware of power games,

~ be prepared for power struggles,

~ watch out for failure to own your power  −

   or, better,






~ have a care against disempowerment

   in any area of life, whether by the action

   of others, or by your own action

   or inaction 

~ empower yourself

~ empower those you love and believe in

~ accept the challenge of owning ALLof

   what you are and who you can be


Simple, really.  [I keep telling myself that.  Over.  And over.  And over.  And it IS getting better.]


The Three of Spears as I see it is a mentoring-kinda card; it gives very specific direction, in a big, global sense.   It says:


“Be ruthlessly practical in pursuit of a MUCH higher ideal.” 


The Tarot deck I use is Legend, the Arthurian Tarot


In my story of the card, which depicts The Horse Fair, I see a young King Arthur having the brilliant insight that, to finally take the throne, and then to more effectively secure his kingdom, he needs to resurrect a strong cavalry wing and make it the centerpiece of his armed forces. 


Having decided so, he would then have to go to Britain’s great horse fair and be ruthlessly objective in his examination of each animal, knowing that the future of Camelot might well rest on that very creature’s shoulders.   



envision your most exalted possibilities,

your highest potential achievement

your most deeply and dearly held hopes

for the Highest and Best. 


Set your goal. 


Then literally, practically, ruthlessly,

holding your nose to the necessary grindstone(s),

do the things required to achieve your will 

− IF you’re clear that your will is truly for the Highest and Best! 


Own your most amazing and idealistic dreams.  Exert the power YOU possess to pursue them through practical means.  (One horse at a time, if necessary.)  


Bright blessings and amazing achievements!

Today’s Weather:  Barflies in the gloaming; thrice biciptal whirligigs dodging astroblemes.  Picnic indoors.

On This Date: 1911 – French poet Guillaume Apollinaire is arrested and put in jail on suspicion of stealing the Mona Lisa from the Louvre museum.  [There’s poetry for you.]  [Or, if you can’t say something nice, say something surrealistic.]
