Tarot Card ~ September 11

Eight Of Spears

The White Hart

Fortune Cookie: How can you liberate yourself, your creativity, your spirit today?  What do you need or what can you do so that you can  JUST GO FOR IT!!!?  [And not get arrested, of course.]


To see the card:http://strangerealms.photo/65/73

We last saw this card on July 1.  It’s a good card to have come up on an emotionally charged day.  Liberation can ALSO involve freedom from fear, from prejudice, from emotional baggage, from hate.  So please bear those elements in mind as you review what the card has to offer.  

Yeah.  Like that.

As I have said before [and I now realize I say with conspicuous regularity], “Ahhhhhh, yes.  Yepper, yepper, yep, yessirino!  Another card where my interpretation veers semi-wildly off in a direction of its own.” 

My offering about this card is based on a Shamanic Journey I once did asking about its meaning.  (To find out more about Journeying, see the category of Shamanism on my blog and/or web page.) 

Other readers give this card meanings like speed, action, movement toward opportunity, a test of skill, and an adventure.  It’s considered a good omen

So if any of those are what you need today, by all means grab ’em and run!  Run!!! 

I see the Eight of Spears as the card of utter, total complete liberation.  It’s an indicator that it is time for you to explore for yourself:

how it is that you may give yourself

more freedom to

go where you want to go

when you want to go there

by the means and

at the speed of your own choosing.

Given that, you KNOW my questions if you were my client would start with something like,

SO!  How are you keeping yourself confined? 

How are you confining yourself in ways that are no longer appropriate for who you have become and what you may give to the world? 

 How can you open yourself to a liberation − in your thinking, your behavior, your belief in what is possible and your understanding of how you may go about achieving that possibility?

Please remember that one way in which you may need to… um, try something different is to just freakin’ go for it.  It may be a little uncomfortable, but at least it’s owning who you are and freeing yourself up so you can move along YOUR path. [Harm to none and love for all, of course.]  


How can you liberate yourself, your creativity, your spirit today?  What do you need or what can you do so that you can  JUST GO FOR IT!!!?

Bright, free, inspiring blessings!

Quote for the Day:  Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will make me go in a corner and cry by myself for hours. ~ Eric Idle

Today’s Weather:  Breathe deep: long life. Breathe deep: long life. Breathe deep: long life.  Tiddly pom.

On This Date:  1609 – Henry Hudson discovers Manhattan Island and the indigenous people living there. [Ironic, no?]

A very moving example of someone whom I believe embodies the spirit of the Eight of Spears today:

911 Father Lee Ielpi: I Don’t Understand All This Hate

    Ah….another message full of gems. The “liberation” picture is gorgeous. I can feel the rock beneath my bare feet, the cool air, and take in the beauty of the fluffy white clouds and blue sky.

    The quote should be on every elementary, middle and high school wall (and replace the old: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me). Words can and DO hurt and we all need to be mindful of them.

    And today’s weather is “right on”: I keep hearing “breathe deep” from one source after another. (None of them added “Tiddly pom”, by the way. That little phrase gives “breathe deep” a little fun punch. 🙂

    ~~ Blessings, Donna
