Tarot Card for the Day ~ November 4

November 3, 2009
  Seven of Cups

The Questing Beast

Saw this card just a couple weeks ago.  We obviously need a reminder.  Especially after an election day. 

We really need to work on joyfulness in our lives. 

So stop reading this, have a coupla mimosas or an Irish coffee or some Fruity Thai pancakes or brownies, or a…

Oh, wait.  That’s for a MUCH different kinda blog.

Anyway, we really need to work on joyfulness in our lives.

This is another card where my interpretation may diverge a tidly, tadly [or rather substantial] bit from that of other readers.  And I’m pretty joyful about it.

Some see the Seven of Cups as recommending opening to visions through contemplation.  [Mustn’t argue with that, ever, unless you’re ready to have the Storm Troopers of Light come after ya.  And gold lamé spacesuits with ruby go-go boots first thing in the morning is more than I can handle.  Even with pancakes.] 

Some readers find the card dictates that the querent (questioner) has a choice to make, and must decide upon one of various options.

 Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, sees this card as betokening – among other things − fantasy, whims or perhaps a bizarre turn of events.  Right up my alley.  [I’ve decided to rename my office The Bizarre Bazaar.]

I see the Seven of Cups as the card of utter, total complete joy and joyful abandon

 There may be some need to stay at least a bit grounded, so you DON’T go completely off into the realm of fantasy in a    ”  ҉      ҉       ҉   Wow, look at all the pretty colors!    ҉    I’ll betcha I can too live on air and rainbows and weird pancakes     ҉      ҉       ҉   !” right on down the primrose path” kinda scenario.

But this is also the card of Fairy Favors, creativity and clear vision around attaining true desires.  (And, as I said to a client in a recent reading, it really does imply that you’re going to do some meaningful work on defining and owning what your TRUE desires in this life actually are!)

And this is still a great, great time to become reacquainted with the Green Fay Friends down the harvest garden way, and re-earn the Fairy Favors they offer.


So go after the joy. Seek it, quest after it, demand it!  And for pity’s sake, at least be sure you can actually define what it is − or what it would be, if you had your druthers − for you.

Let yourself renew your belief in and commitment to your happiness, and be open to the myriad magical ways the universe may have to bring it to you.  Let yourself be open to surprises and miracles in that regard.  And open to a little Fairy Magic today!

Joy!  Joy!  Joy!

And Joy! 

Bright blessings! 

And don’t forget joy!
