Tarot Card for the Day ~ November 3

Strength

Percivale’s Vision

Haven’t seen this card since early July.  It’s always a fortunate card to turn up.  And not a moment too soon!

Obviously, this card betokens its own name: Strength, as well as courage and vitality.  Plus magnanimity − both toward you and emanating from you – [so feel free to send your favorite Tarot reader a beautiful and rare Italian silk almost-anything.  Thank you].  The card can also indicate perhaps the most perfect light touch of luck.   

Really pretty good for a Tuesday!   So TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT!  ALL OF IT!!  [Otherwise what are you reading this for?]

Where was I?  [Come to that, Who was I?  Oh yeh…]

The Strength card is one of the most utterly positive cards in the deck.  And it does offer a few useful, specific recommendations.

It is very important that you do not underestimate your physical and emotional strength at this time, or doubt the power and durability of your connection to Universal Life Force – God, Spirit, The Big G, Mr. Dylan, Commissar Cheney or Whatever-You-Name-It. 

In other words, don’t down yourself out or assume less of yourself than you may actually be able to handle.  If opportunities come, REACH!  If challenges come, PUSH BACK!  Don’t just crawl under the bed and hide. 

Believe in your ability to succeed and to attain that which you most desire, particularly in areas of physical healing and achievement and/or emotional connection and healing. 

Draw on your inner strength, which is truly far greater than you give yourself credit for.

Like many of us, you may need to begin investing some ongoing effort toward actually identifying and functionalizing your connection to your inner strength.  Our culture ain’t so good about that, unless you have forced yourself to march to the same “inner drummer” as everybody else.  Get to know your OWN connection to Source, and work with it.  

We have in us the brilliant, beautiful and eternal power of stars.  It’s up to us to find and focus it.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, feels this card indicates having the strength and vitality to realize one’s goals, and also ambition tempered with serenity – a gentle strength.  Great energy for an election day! 

When I work with clients, I advise them about an additional level of meaning to this card in this particular deck.  I find this to be the card of the visionary – the individual who can see higher, farther, and deeper than others can. 

Sometimes, even more important, this is the person who can see (distinguish clearly) the trees for the forest and the forest for the trees.  So give yourself credit for being able to see things more clearly, and define things more accurately and truly, than the madding crowd around you. 

Own your ability to be the visionary who can, as Robert F. Kennedy so beautifully put it, “…dream things as they never were, and say why not?”  Or see things as they really are, and say, “Nuh-unh sucker!  We don’t play that way NO MORE!”

Trust in your strength and draw on it.  Manage it well when you must, but draw on it.  Believe in your success.  And let your vision of WHAT CAN BE guide you higher and higher beyond the norm of what has been.

Bright blessings, light, clarity and joy!

Quote for The Day:

 The IRS decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the IRS office. 

The IRS auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his attorney. 

The auditor said, ‘Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, Which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I’m not sure the IRS finds that believable.’ 

I’m a great gambler, and I can prove it,’ says Grandpa. ‘How about a demonstration?’ 

The auditor thinks for a moment and said, ‘Okay. Go ahead.’ 

Grandpa says, ‘I’ll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.’ 

The auditor thinks a moment and says, ‘It’s a bet.’ 

Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor’s jaw drops. 

Grandpa says, ‘Now, I’ll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye..’ 

Now the auditor can tell Grandpa isn’t blind, so he takes the bet.. 

Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye…. The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand,with Grandpa’s attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous. 

‘Want to go double or nothing?’ Grandpa asks ‘I’ll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk,and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.’ 

The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there’s no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again. 

Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can’t make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the auditor’s desk. 

The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win. 

But Grandpa’s own attorney moans and puts his head in his hands. 

‘Are you okay?’ the auditor asks. 

‘Not really,’ says the attorney. ‘This morning, when Grandpa told me he’d been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand dollars that he could come in here and pee all over your desk and that you’d be happy about it!’ 

Moral: Don’t Mess with Old People!!!  ~  Thanks, Carrie B.!

Today’s Whether:  Gasbags bloviating near and far.   

On This Date:  1883 – American Old West: Self-described “Black Bart the po8” (poet) gets away with his last stagecoach robbery, but leaves an incriminating clue that eventually leads to his capture.

 

A Sample of his leavings: 

I’ve labored long and hard for bread,
For honor, and for riches,
But on my corns too long you’ve tred,
You fine-haired sons of bitches.”  
~ Black Bart, 1877
