Tarot Card for the Day ~ January 31

Fortune Cookie: Honest and open dialogue is important today.  So is networking.  Get out and meet new people. Make new connections for your potential benefit. 

Well.  We haven’t seen this card on the blog since October, 2008.  And yet it came up for more than half of the six people I read for on Saturday.  Gee, I wonder if that means it’s an important card for just now?  Whaddya think?

Some readers see this card as betokening recreation.  Others find it to be about receiving news in writing.  Some say it indicates that the querent is juggling a lot of things at the moment, and must work to keep things on an even keel.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend Tarot, writes of successful handling of fluctuating fortunes, employing creative maneuvers and the reevaluation of plans

So if any of those things resonate for you based on what you’re experiencing lately, by all means take advantage of this card’s insights and make skillful moves on your own behalf. 

In working with clients over a number of years, I find a couple of other recommendations to be useful when this card comes up.

First, it’s a card about networking.  Get out and meet new people, learn about them and have them learn about you

On a deeper level, it’s a card about honest and open dialogue.  You must speak your truth − calmly if possible – directly to those who need to hear it and/or those who can help you follow through with what your truth requires.  But then you must ALSO quietly, compassionately listen to the responses of the person you have addressed, and take their honest words into consideration.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly for all of us lately, this is 

The card of

the Kozmic Giggle

It’s a card that counsels us to retain a sense of humor when done in by mishaps.  And even in a loving, Spirit-driven universe, there may be some.

So network.  Engage compassionately in honest and open dialogue.  And try to keep it light!

Brightest blessings!

Quote for the Day: “This wise clown of compassion is a genuine mahatma of the Cosmic Giggle.” ~ Ram Dass, speaking of Wavy Gravy

During the first Woodstock Festival, Wavy Gravy and fellow members of the Hog Farm Collective were put in charge of security, which was remarkably low-key. The backstage password was “I forgot,” typical of the good-natured whimsy of the era.  Wavy called his rather unorthodox security group the “Please Force…”  ~ From Wikipedia  [A great illustration of working WITH the Kozmic Giggle.]

Today’s Waethyr:  Heh-heh.  Heh-heh-heh.  Heh.  Heh-heh.
