Tarot Card for the Day ~ August 16

Page of Cups

The Salmon

  
 

Fortune Cookie: Know what wisdom you seek. Begin or ramp up your search or endeavor now.  And give your creativity more free play in your life.

Saw this fellow last toward the end of May.  It’s a card with counsel that’s good for a regular reminding.

In Celtic legend, Salmon was considered the wisest of all creatures.  He dwelt in a great well overhung by the Hazel, the tree of knowledge.  As the fruit (hazel nuts) of the tree dropped into the well, Salmon ate of them and grew greater and deeper and truer in wisdom.

When this card shows up for a client, I share about the legend and then say something like,

First of all, this card is a call to find meaningful opportunities to seek wisdom and increase your knowledge – scholarly pursuits may be perfect just now.  So get started on that immediately if you feel some call to do so. 

Beyond that, Page of Cups is a card of creativity.  So be prepared to explore how you may begin or expand creative projects starting today.   

And in many traditions,  The Fish represents spirituality.  Salmon is one of the only creatures on the Earth who returns to its place of  birth to procreate.  So this card speaks of a primal, powerful drive toward reconnection with Source − with the Divine, with Ultimate Reality, whatever name you choose to give to it.  Or perhaps a drive to return to a place you consider sacred — perfect at any time of the year, no?

Some readers find the Page of Cups represents

a fair young person,

meditation,

an imaginative, reflective, inspiring friend

So if any of these pop up in meaningful ways today [including via an email Tarot card, already], eagerly accept the gifts they bring.        

What this card recommends and requests, all in all, is

Know what wisdom you seek.   

Begin or ramp up your search or endeavor now.

Give your creativity more free play in your life.

Open to very solid and inspiring reconnection with Source in beautiful, meaningful, transcendent ways.

DO IT TODAY.

DO IT TODAY.

DO IT TODAY.

Bright blessings, grace and peace!

Quote for the Day: Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.  ~ Buddha

Today’s Weather:  Piscatorial chinchillas posing as small aardvarks all amid the gloamin’ sa gae!  No lavash.  No kangaroos. 

On This Date:  1858 – U.S. President James Buchanan inaugurates the new transatlantic telegraph cable by exchanging greetings with Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom. [Hello, Vicky? It’s Jim. Do you have Prince Albert in a can?]
