Tarot Card for the Day ~ October 27



Ace of Swords

Sword of Strange Hangings 

Hasn’t been even a month since this card last came to advise us.  So do try to give it some thought and attention this time.  Eh? 

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!

    Hello Neal,

    “Image hosted by Tripod” confuses me! (It doesn’t take much…)

    Do you know what item is on the bed with the sword?

    I’ve asked Spirit to help me to release whatever is no longer serving my highest good and to be open to all the wonderful adventures life is presenting to me. Thanks for prompting this prayer with your post.

    And lastly, An Intenders Circle will officially hold its first meeting at the Creative Healing Center in Bainbridge on Thursday, December 3rd at 7:30 and continue to meeting on the first Thursday of the month. (www.cindyscreativehealingcenter.com) (Yay!) All are welcome. Thank you for planting the seed! Feel free to mention this to any of your clients or friends.

    ~ ~ Blessings, Donna

    Hi, Donna,

    The web seemed to have some difficulty picking up the photo I dropped in ~ of John Cleese as the Great Wizard Tim from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    I think the object on the bed is the rolled up scabbard. Eiher that or a medieval Doritos bag left by a prior vistor.

    Congratulations on the Intenders group. If you write up a bit more about it and send it as an aemail, I’ll froward it around.
