Tarot Card for the Day ~ January 28

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.

 Okay.  Who isn’t taking this seriously?  Who isn’t paying attention here?  We saw card on Monday, and less than two weeks ago before that. You think I’m just doin’ this for fun?  Huh?  I could be downstairs watching Jeopardy.  Or reruns of Two-and-a-Half Men.  But no.  I’m up here trying to find something vaguely new to say about a card that has come up three times in two weeks.

So are we ready to pay attention? Huh?  Huh?

That’s good, because it’s an important card with a very solid reminder.  A reminder of what?  

A reminder that we really need to work on joyfulness in our lives. Did you STILL not read the Fortune Cookie?

So.  Joyfulness. My advice would be to stop reading this, have a Dos Equis or a coupla mimosas or an Irish coffee or some God Bud pancakes or brownies, or a…

Oh, wait.  Wrong blog.  Right audience, maybe, but wrong 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. [Or pancakes.]

[Mustn’t argue with that, ever, unless you’re ready to have the Storm Troopers of Light come kick yer butt all across several dimensions, with at least 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 God Bud 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.  [My office cat refers to my office as the Bizar Bazar.] 

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    ҉     ҉     ҉  !”    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 Fey 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:  I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It’s just that the translations have gone wrong.  ~  John Lennon

Today’s Weather:  Oceans of sky-borne fluffwads caroming out of control.  Keep a hob or jill in your pocket.  

On This Date: 1887 – In a snowstorm at Fort Keogh, Montana, the world’s largest snowflakes are reported, being 15 inches wide and 8 inches thick.  [Dayum!]

    Hey Neal!

    Cheech and Chong were on the radio being interviewed on 90.3. I didn’t get to hear much of it, but how funny you put their pic on your page the same day they were on the radio here….lol.

    Did you plan that?

    Hope you got to hear it, I know that you really enjoy them!!!!
