Tarot Card for the Day ~ September 30

Ace of Swords

Sword of Strange Hangings 

This card last turned up in early July. 

More important, September 30 is the first anniversary of my offering a Daily Tarot Card via this blog.

 And what do you think the card for that day was? 

Yep.  Yep!  Yep!!!!  Couldn’t make this stuff up.  Nobody would believe it.  Yep!

The Ace of Swords!

All RIGHT now, boys and girls, ALL TOGETHER NOW:

Aces in any Tarot deck are cards of a new beginning.


~ How can you (how do you need to) begin your life anew, today, right now?

~ What changes can you begin, even in ways that may seem small? 

~ What potentials can you believe in, hope for, reach for and remember?

When the Ace of Swords comes up in a reading, I say something like:

“Your new beginning has to do with going on an adventure, of giving yourself permission to go after something that really sets your heart and soul on fire. 

Please understand, if you undertake this quest, it very well may involve the release of some element of your life that no longer serves you. 

Should you find that to be the case, strive to let the release be as quick and clean as possible, a very skillful surgery.”

I’ll stand by that. 

But as I’ve worked with clients who have had this card come up, I’ve also come to perceive that the adventure, the new beginning and the release tend to have an aspect of destiny to them: we often find that the person has reached a point where they must make some choices to move forward in order to evolve as their life offers them the potential to do. 

And what I often see is, in doing so, they do very well to remember that even big changes can be initiated and made without creating negative karma

By the way, I have also found that this card betokens a positive outcome for skillfully undertaken literal surgery. 

(And for some people, the adventure they decide to go on, and the “surgery” of the release they decide to make, can lead to a profound healing of the romantic side of life as well.)

What is your new beginning? 

What adventure does your destiny call you to − beginning today? 

What may you be called to release? 

Undertake your quest in a way that is firm yet considerate of the law:



Bright blessings and joyous adventures!
