Tarot Card ~ August 31


Percivale’s Vision

Fortune Cookie: Trust in your strength and draw on it.  Manage it well when you must, but draw on it.  Believe in your success.  And let your vision of WHAT CAN BE guide you higher and higher beyond the norm of what has been.

We last saw this card on the last day of June.  It’s always a fortunate card to turn up —  and it usually shows up not a moment too soon! 

To see the card: 

Obviously, this card betokens its own name: Strength, as well as courage and vitality.  Plus magnanimity − both toward you and emanating from you – [so feel free to send your favorite Tarot reader a beautiful and rare European antique-anything-expensive. Thank you.] [This smarmy message brought to you by the committee to help Neal look more like a grownup.] The card can also indicate perhaps the most perfect light touch of luck.  Yesssss!

Really pretty good stuff, then.   So TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT!  ALL OF IT!!  [Otherwise what are you reading this for?]

Where was I? 

[Come to that, Who was I?]

The Strength card is one of the most utterly positive cards in the deck.  And it does offer a few useful, specific recommendations.

It is very important that you do not underestimate your physical and emotional strength at this time, or doubt the power and durability of your connection to Universal Life Force – God, Spirit, The Big G, Mr. Dylan, Tyra, Peter O’Toole, der Cheney-Fuhrer or Whatever-You-Name-It. 

In other words, don’t down yourself out or assume less of yourself than you may actually be able to handle.  If opportunities come, REACH!  If challenges come, PUSH BACK!  Don’t just crawl under the bed and hide.

Believe in your ability to succeed and to attain that which you most desire, particularly in areas of physical healing and achievement and/or emotional connection and healing. 

Draw on your inner strength, which is truly far greater than you give yourself credit for.  So haul that butt up from under the bed. 

Right now!

I mean it.

We’re all waiting. 

Come on…


Much better.

Like many of us, you may need to begin investing some ongoing effort toward actually identifying and functionalizing your connection to your inner strength.  Our culture ain’t so good about that, unless you have forced yourself to march to the same “inner drummer” as everybody else.  Get to know your OWN connection to Source, and work with it.  

We have in us the brilliant, beautiful and eternal power of stars.  It’s up to us to find and focus it.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, feels this card indicates having the strength and vitality to realize one’s goals, and also ambition tempered with serenity – a gentle yet full strength. 

When I work with clients, I advise them about an additional level of meaning to this card in this particular deck.  I find this to be the card of the visionary – the individual who can see higher, farther, and deeper than others can. 

Sometimes, even more important, this is the person who can see (distinguish clearly) the trees for the forest and the forest for the trees.  So give yourself credit for being able to see things more clearly, and define things more accurately and truly, than the madding crowd around you. 

Own your ability to be the visionary who can, as Robert F. Kennedy so beautifully put it, “…dream things as they never were, and say why not?”  Or see things as they really are, and say, “Nuh-unh sucker!  We don’t play that way NO MORE!”

Trust in your strength and draw on it.  Manage it well when you must, but draw on it.  Believe in your success.  And let your vision of WHAT CAN BE guide you higher and higher beyond the norm of what has been.

Bright blessings, light, clarity and joy!

Today’s Whether:  Gobsmack Sallys running great dizzy circles all over every ole where.  Use the Twinkie defense.

On This Date:  1056Byzantine Empress Theodora becomes ill, dying suddenly a few days later, without children to succeed the throne, ending the Macedonian dynasty. [I hate it when that happens.]

    Yer still funny as ever! Thanks! We all need that these days.

    One thing I learned from Loretta LaRoche at her Lily Dale event a couple week-ends ago goes like this: Say something…with emotion…to whomever.. that you really, really need to get off your chest. Then twirl. It’s hysterical. I’ve been doing that quite a bit lately. The incongruency between the emotion-packed words and the act of twirling lighten things up tremendously.

    I also realized that I can simply twirl in my mind if need be. That works, too. 🙂

    ~ ~ Happy twirling! ~ ~ Donna

    I’m Dizzzzzzzyyyyyyyy!

    Forgive me for not giving full instructions. You needn’t get dizzy. The “twirl” is ONE somewhat quick, rather dramatic 360 degree turn/pivot/swirl/circle. Period. PLEASE try it sometime. Vent. Then twirl. It does wonders! Quacks me up!

  4. shamanspath Says:

    Reminds me of the mid-70s. I knew a guy who would do the same thing. Except instead of twirling, he’d break into the Funky Chicken. Wonder if he ever progressed to where they’re letting him out weekends…..

  5. Donna Allen Says:

    Hmmmm…back in the mid-70’s I was raising small twin girls. I could certainly have used the Funky Chicken routine then. But, thanks for the heads up. I’ll be careful.
