Tarot Card for the Day ~ July 26

Nine of Spears

Wind Harps of War

Fortune Cookie: Own and honor your intuition.  It’s one of the finest gifts Spirit offers humans.  Let yourself explore whether there isn’t someplace better for you to reside ~ physically or philosophically.

To see the card:http://strangerealms.


Hmmm… A card we haven’t seen since mid-December.  And since early June before that.  Which means nothing in particular, but I’ll should probably try to at least make SOMETHING of it, anyway.  But I won’t.

Traditional readings for this card run along the lines of strength in preparedness for battle or strength in the opposition you will be able to mount if you choose to,  delays, things like that.

In Legend, the Arthurian Tarot, Anna-Marie Ferguson finds such meanings as anticipating hostility, preparing for upheaval, outwitting an adversary, and foresight – the last two of course being my favorites.

For those of you of an historical bent, the objects depicted in this card were giant wind harps erected on the cliffs above Britain’s shores in anticipation of invasion.  These great instruments, “played” by the sea winds would give forth the shrieks and howling of the guardian spirits of the land.  They would break the courage and disrupt the magic of invading forces.

The Nine of Spears as I perceive it has two principal meanings to guide you. 

First, this card indicates

You have a very capable, solid intuitive “early warning system.”    

It gives you good, actionable information in advance that there might be, for example, problems somewhere over the horizon on a particular project, or that a person is other than what he is presenting himself to be — in a way that ain’t good. 

BUT, this card also says,

you’re most likely to second-guess yourself out of

honoring and thus using the very fine and helpful guidance you have received. 

Stop that!  Right now.  Right.  NOW.

If you’re going to take the trouble to read a Tarot posting, I’d guess it’s because you find intuition to be a valid tool that can help in your daily affairs.  Well, if MY intuition is good enough, so is yours ~ or it can be, once you stop second-guessing yourself out of what you’ve been given and start trusting and working with your inner guidance.

Second, this card says

“Don’t get too comfortable where you are ‘living;’ you may choose to move.” 

I put living in quotation marks because Nine of Spears doesn’t just mean that you may sell your cottage in Chagrin Falls and move to a condo overlooking Erie in Lakewood − although you might. 

This card can also indicate a significant change or evolution in your personal philosophy, your spirituality, or your understanding about what physical health means to you and what you must do to maintain or enhance it. 

So, based on the two meanings of this card,  keep an intuitive eye peeled for glimmerings of those kinds of changes that come your way beginning today.

Own and honor your intuition.  It’s one of the finest gifts Spirit offers humans. 

And let yourself explore whether there isn’t someplace better for you to reside ~ physically or philosophically.

Bright blessings and blissings and all good things!

    I LOVE Jiminy (spelling?) Cricket! Thanks!

    Hmmmm….I got my Angel Harp (don’t have a Wind Harps of War) out yesterday for some fine tuning and fun. I should probly try to make something out of it. But I won’t.

    On intuition… I love it…and couldn’t imagine living without it. And to think just a few short years ago or so I was taking your “intuition” classes.

    Reading needed soon. Thanks!

    ~ ~ Blessings, Donna
