Tarot Card for the Day ~ January 13

January 12, 2010

Seven of Cups

The Questing Beast

 Fortune Cookie: 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.

Saw this card in early November.  It’s always a good card for a reminder.  A reminder of what, you may ask?  

A reminder that we really need to work on joyfulness in our lives. Didn’t you read the Fortune Cookie?

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 still for a MUCH different kinda blog,which I haven’t created yet.  And you should count your blessings.

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 kick yer butt all across at least several dimensions, at least ne of them being Texas.  And gold lamé spacesuits with ruby go-go boots first thing in the morning is more than I can handle.  Even with Fruity Thai 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 [but! but! but! but! 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 can be a great, great time to do some wishcraft around becoming reacquainted with the Green Fay Friends down the garden way come spring time, and work to 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 offer 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!

Quote for the day:  The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.  ~  Albert Einstein

Today’s Weather:  Wyvern-flung disambiguated portents of Groundhog Days to come.  Have coffee with a fund raiser.  

On This Date:  1942Henry Ford patents a plastic automobile, which is 30% lighter than a regular car.  [Hell-OOOOO!  Anybody listening here?  Hell-OOOOO!]
