Tarot Card for the Day ~ December 14

Two of Spears

Bedivere and Kay

This card last turned for us in mid-September.  It’s a really good card to work with all throughout a season when… how to say… familial connections may not be all one might hope.  You’ll see what I mean when we get to my personal intuitive interpretation of the card. 

The Two of Spears is, in fact, one of those cards where my intuitive guidance has me going off in a different direction than the standard interpretation.  [Yeah. Again. Thenkyew.  Shaddup and lissen to my kindly and gentle guidance already.]

Many readers say this card bespeaks things like riches, fortune, magnificence. Others might suggest you spend some time alone considering the advice of others in order to help make up your own mind about an important decision that NEEDS to be made.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, writes of proving one’s capability to manage a large project; planning for the future; exerting authority; riches and success, using all one’s talents to achieve a communal vision.

So if any of those issues are on your mind today, accept this info as an indication that you’re IN TUNE and placing your energy in the right place at the right time.  [And if you’re not up for riches and success, FortheLuvvaGod, Goddess, The Universe, Anybody, CALL ME.  We gotta talk!  216-371-3433.]

However…

When this card turns up for a client, I find myself telling them this:

I don’t know what your family life is like.  It could be great.  It could suck pond ice in winter.  Regardless, I find the Two of Spears to say

~ ~ It’s time for you to create a family of spirit that is even closer to you than family of blood or marriage. 

[That is, in fact, something some clients have a LOT of trouble with. 

They cannot envision EVER being closer to someone than to their blood family.  All their blood family.  However bizarre, weird, twisted, hurtful, etc. the family, or some of them, might be. 

All I can say is, it’s not impossible, and it’s often healthy to have others in your life who are closer to you than the Amazin’ Flyin’ Fussin’ Burrito Krazees God decided to lay upon you for some of your initial life lessons. 

So at least promise you’ll think about it.  Okay?] 

~ ~ You need to begin seeking and finding, perhaps one by one, a group of people who − because of the commonality of intentions, goals, hopes, spiritual path, etc. − will be as close to you as anyone could possibly be. As you, too will be to them.

So spend some time thinking about what it would be like to have a circle of people in your life who

~ would always have your back,

~ would always be able to hear your darkest secrets

    and continue to see the Light in you,

    as you would do for them

~ would seek to remind you of the highest and

    best in yourself, lovingly and always

Then go about creating that circle.  Slowly.  Intentionally.  With discretion.  But get going.

Know what YOUR family of spirit would be like.  Seek them.  Find them.  Let them help you change the world.

Bright blessings and joyful meetings!

Quote for the Day: All empty souls tend toward extreme opinions.  ~  Yeats

And:   There are some doubters even in the western villages. One woman told me last Christmas that she did not believe either in hell or in ghosts. Hell she thought was merely an invention got up by the priest to keep people good; and ghosts would not be permitted, she held, to go ‘trapsin about the earth’ at their own free will; ‘but there are faeries,’ she added, ‘and little leprechauns, and water-horses, and fallen angels.’ I have met also a man with a mohawk Indian tattooed upon his arm, who held exactly similar beliefs and unbeliefs. No matter what one doubts one never doubts the faeries, for, as the man with the mohawk Indian on his arm said to me, ‘they stand to reason.’  ~ Yeats, from The Celtic Twilight

Today’s Weather:  Scrying circuses.  Master classes in wussymagmuffery.  A sure protection?  Toenails painted electric lime green.  

On This Date: 1999Kiribati, Nauru and Tonga join the United Nations. [Really.  That was the best I could do.  A generally cruddy day in history.]

    What meaningful quotes of Yeats. Next time I hear someone very opinionated (which is most irritating), hopefully I’ll remember that his/her soul is empty and try to bring in some light (or at least experience greater tolerance.)

    Yes, “faeries stand to reason.” (I DO believe in fairies…I DO believe in fairies…!)

    ~ ~ Blessings and such 🙂 Donna
