Tarot Card for the Day ~ September 16

Two of Spears

Bedivere and Kay

Dunno if you’ve noticed, but it seems ta me that a lot of cards have been cycling back from late July and early August this past week or so.  That would say to me something like, “Those things you hoped to achieve by summer’s end?  One more chance now.  Give it a try and you may surprise yourself and see them through after all!”  So give ’er a try, then. 

The Two of Spears is one of those cards where my intuitive guidance has me going off in a different direction than the standard interpretation which is offered.  [Yeah. Again. Thenkyew.  Shaddup and lissen to my kindly and gentle guidance already.]

Many readers say this card bespeaks things like, riches, fortune, magnificence.  Others might suggest you spend some time alone considering the advice of others in order to help make up your own mind about an important decision that NEEDS to be made.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, writes of proving one’s capability to manage a large project; planning for the future; exerting authority; riches and success , using all one’s talents to achieve a communal vision.

So if any of those issues are on your mind today, accept this info as an indication that you’re IN TUNE and placing your energy in the right place at the right time.  [And if you’re not up for riches and success, FortheLuvvaGod, Goddess, The Universe, Anybody, CALL ME.  We gotta talk!  216-371-3433.]


When this card turns up for a client, I find myself telling them, I don’t know what  you family life is like.  It could be great.  It could suck pond ice in winter.  Regardless, I find the Two of Spears is saying

~ ~It’s time for you to create a family of spirit that is even closer to you than family of blood. 

[That is something some clients have a LOT of trouble with. 

They cannot envision EVER possibly being closer to someone than to their blood family.  All their blood family.  However bizarre they, or some of them, might be. 

All I can say is, it’s not impossible, and it’s often healthy to have others in your life who are closer to you than the Amazin’ Flyin’ Fussin’ Burrito Krazees God decides to share with you for some of your initial life lessons. 

So at least promise you’ll think about it.  Okay?] 

~ ~ You need to begin seeking and finding, perhaps one by one, a group of people who − because of the commonality of intentions, goals, hopes, spiritual path, etc. − will be as close to you as anyone could possibly be. As you, too will be to them.

So spend some time thinking about what it would be like to have a circle of people in your life who

~ would always have your back,

~ would always be able to hear your darkest secrets

    and continue to see the Light in you,

    as you would do for them

~ would seek to remind you of the highest and

    best in yourself, lovingly and always

Then go about creating that circle.  Slowly.  Intentionally.  With discretion.  But get going.

Know what YOUR family of spirit would be like.  Seek them.  Find them.  Let them help you change the world.

Bright blessings and joyful meetings!

Quote for the Day: All empty souls tend toward extreme opinions.  ~  Yeats

And:   There are some doubters even in the western villages. One woman told me last Christmas that she did not believe either in hell or in ghosts. Hell she thought was merely an invention got up by the priest to keep people good; and ghosts would not be permitted, she held, to go ‘trapsin about the earth’ at their own free will; ‘but there are faeries,’ she added, ‘and little leprechauns, and water-horses, and fallen angels.’ I have met also a man with a mohawk Indian tattooed upon his arm, who held exactly similar beliefs and unbeliefs. No matter what one doubts one never doubts the faeries, for, as the man with the mohawk Indian on his arm said to me, ‘they stand to reason.’  ~ Yeats, from The Celtic Twilight

Today’s Weather:  Cumulomanfreedies, conducted by Tesla the Wonder Bat.  Anticipate afternoon snackism.

On This Date: 1966 – The Metropolitan Opera House opens at Lincoln Center in New York City with the world premiere of Samuel Barber’s opera, Antony and Cleopatra.

And: 1098 – Hildegard of Bingen, German magistra and the first composer whose biography is known, is born.

    Dear Neal,

    Thank you so much for coming yesterday and for all the “kindly and gentle” advice. You know, you say such profound and helpful things (and with such humility) that those who aren’t aware might miss it all.

    I appreciate the information you gave me on Tabby (all seems to fit). The reminder to honor my intuition was needed — as was the “don’t take things so personally” comment. Etc. Etc.

    Yer a gem. Thank you. Thank you.

    ~ ~ Blessings, Donna P.S. Is is a bad/good practice to give cats some tuna or chicken (people food)?

    P.S. For to mention — I love the Yeats’ quotes.

    And — your visit has left me feeling like I participated in an (early) Autumnal Equinox celebration! (Exuse the exuberance, please.)
