Tarot Card for the Day ~ January 29

Ace of Spears

The Grail Lance

Fortune Cookie: Be clear in what you want.  Be clear about the why of it.  Go after it directly, the way anyone with a strong, positive masculine drive would.

We last saw this card around the end of November.

As those of you who have read this blog for even only a few days will likely remember, Aces in any Tarot deck are cards of a new beginning.  So, let’s ask again (and again and again, from time to time as the Universe recommends it):

~ How can you − how do you need to begin your life anew, today, this moment?

~ What changes can you begin, even in small ways? 

~ What potentials can you believe in, hope for, reach for and remember?

Expect The Universe will keep asking that question until you (yes, you!  Don’t try to weenie out of it this time!) truly remember to ask it over and over again as a part of who you are!

Some readers feel the Ace of Spears has to do with invention or creation, and perhaps with an inheritance.  Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, finds mental activity, revelation and beginning anew to be elements of the card’s meaning.  

[So ’scuse me while I have a revelation.  Humteedum Deedum.  Humtedee Deedum.  Humtedeedeeedeeeeeee Deeedum.  Ahummmmmmmmmmm.  Thank you.]

I believe the Ace of Spears asks for two things when it appears. 

~ First, it reminds you to become very clear within yourself about something you want or some goal you would achieve.  It is, therefore, important that you know specifically what you want to go after – perhaps some major wish in life, or perhaps just a current, interim, in-the-moment thing that will be helpful or fulfilling for a short time, or serve as a useful next step. 

It is equally important that you be clear about why you want it.  What are your true motivations, and are they really for the highest and best? So this card is also about being conscious of what you would do and have, and of your impact on the world.  I think we could all spend a little more time on this one.

~ Then, once that first, more internal step is completed, the Ace of Spears directs you to use strong, clean, clear, non-repressive and non-repressed masculine energy as your model − think Dalai Lama, maybe? – and simply go after your wish or goal confidently, firmly and directly.  (So it’s assertive rather than aggressive.)  Know what you want for a new beginning.  Pursue it.  Yourself.  Today!

What is your new beginning?  Be clear in what you want.  Be clear about the why of it.  Go after it directly, the way anyone with a strong, positive masculine drive would.  Do something concrete about it today. 

Bright blessings and blissings and beautiful, knowing beginnings!

    Dear Mr. Humteedum,

    Thank you very much for the quote by the Dalai Lama: Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.

    This is a “must remember”. (And I WILL!)

    I also appreciate being able to view the Ace of Spears card. It has such a powerful look/feel to it — so in line with the message as you bring it per your Cookie Fortune as well as your extended version.

    ~ ~ Blessings and gratitude, Donna
