Tarot Card for the Day ~ September 9

Four of Swords

Isolt of the White Hands

Great.  Yesterday’s card says Giddyap!  Gitup! Git goin’!  And this one says… well, you’ll see.

This card last came by in early January, so I’d recommend paying attention if for no other reason than its very rarity.

The Four of Swords is a card of respite and recovery.  It speaks of moving from a stressful environment to a place of safety, calm and comfort.

Some readers find that this card speaks of solitude or hermit’s repose.  Others see it as predicting renewal.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, finds such things as healing, gentle soul searching, convalescing and regaining strength and direction in this card.

 To me, the Four of Swords says:

“Now!  Today!  Make a mini-retreat!  Give yourself time and space to rest, recharge, recuperate.  As Anna-Marie Ferguson also says, this card recommends you leave a stressful, chaotic situation in order to clear the mind and reevaluate plans ~  so you can refine your sense of where you actually want to go!

Please be sure to carve out at least an hour, if not most of the day, to just be at peace, take it easy, do what’s comfortable and healing as you let the river (and pretty much everything else) flow by. 

Bright blessings, peace, calm and healing!

Quote for the Day: “It is a comfort in wretchedness to have companions in woe.” (Marlowe. Faust.) Of course, he was talking about Hell. But it applies equally to Arkham.  [Or Cleveland, for that matter.] ~ Neil Gaiman, from Sandman # 7

Today’s Weather: Hardly any [running low].

On This Date: 1839 – John Herschel takes the first glass plate photograph.

And: 1947 – First actual case of a computer bug being found: a moth lodges in a relay of a Harvard Mark II computer at Harvard University.

    What an ever-so-sweet and, yes, “amazing” cat news story & video. Very heart-warming.

    And a day of going with the flow feels very much in order on this special day of 9/9/09.

    ~ ~ Blessings and gratitude, Donna
