Tarot Card for the Day ~ November 26

Four of Spears

La Cote Male Tale & Maledisant

Yipes!  A card we haven’t seen since mid-January.  And a perfect card for Thanksgiving Day in the US.  Unless you’re a turkey. 

In most Tarot decks, the Four of Spears would be seen as a card of harmony, prosperity, happy social occasions and perhaps even romance.  So, because most of those things will, or at least should (at least in theory), be on tap for today, by all means go after them in any way that won’t get anybody arrested.  [Ask boozy Uncle Fred for a loan during your joint after-dinner barbershop quartet rendition of “I’m a Lumberjack.”  That should cover everything.] 

When I’m working with a client, I tend to perceive the card as having a stronger energy those attributes listed above, wunnerful though they are.  In fact, I feel this card makes makes a really powerful demand on the person I’m reading for. 

Because of Anna-Marie Ferguson’s illustration for this card in her Legend deck, and the story it portrays, I call it “The Card of the Perfect Marriage.” 

If I were reading for you − as I am, now that I’m sober enough to think of it – I’d suggest you take a few minutes on this holiday for a good, hard, close look at all the major areas of your life, especially the ones that register as REALLY important to you just now – whether business, spiritual path, health, and yeah, even relationship – and ask yourself honestly:

What it would take — from everyone involved — to help the situation so that it can evolve into a “perfect marriage?”  Or, what will it take to be honest with yourself and accept that it probably just ain’t gonna happen?  And what are all the implications either way?

And remember that, at least as it is represented archetypally, marriage is a coming together of opposites.  So think about how something that seems completely the opposite of what you’d normally expect — or would want to try or would think could succeed — might create the harmony, the prosperity, the health, the partnership, the opportunities, the “perfect marriage” you seek.

In the areas of your life most important to you today: What is your perfect marriage?  What steps will it take to get you there?  How can you begin, at least with a baby step, today?

Bright blessings and happy realizations!

And a beautiful, hope-filled, happy Thanksgiving to all!

    Thanks so much for your message, Neal — and for the quote by Pete Seeger: There is hope for the world. That feels really good right now.

    Wishing you and yours a beautiful, hope-filled and happy Thanksgiving, too!

    ~ ~ Blessings, Donna P.S. My 5-year old grandson laughed outloud at the turkey-under-the-lampshade picture. I asked him what he’d do today if he were a turkey. He said he’d run all the way to Hawaii. So much for a child’s thinking! 🙂
