Tarot Card, October 3

Ace of Spears

The Grail Lance

Fortune Cookie: Be clear in what you want.  Be clear about the why of it.  Go after it evenly, directly, the way anyone with a strong, positive masculine  energy would.

To see the card: Legend_The_Arthurian_Tarot

We last saw this card around mid-August.  I suppose that helps explain my general lack of focus since then [he said, grasping at straws].

As those of you who have read this blog for even only a few days will likely remember, Aces in any Tarot deck are cards of a new beginning.  So, let’s ask again (and again and again, from time to time as the Universe recommends it):

~ How can you − how do you need to begin your life anew, today, this moment?

~ What changes can you begin, even in small ways? 

~ What potentials can you believe in, hope for, reach for and remember?

Expect The Universe will keep asking that question until you (yes, you!  Don’t try to weenie out of it this time!) truly remember to ask those same, powerful questions over and over again as a part of who you are!

Some readers feel the Ace of Spears has to do with invention or creation, and perhaps with an inheritance.  Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, finds mental activity, revelation and beginning anew to be elements of the card’s meaning.  

[So ’scuse me while I have a revelation.  Humteedum Deedum.  Humtedee Deedum.  Humtedeedeeedeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Deeedum.  Ahummmmmmmmmmm.]  [Thank you.]

I believe the Ace of Spears asks for two things when it appears. 

~ First, it reminds you to become very clear within yourself about something you want or some goal you would achieve.  It is, therefore, important that you know specifically what you want to go after – perhaps some major wish in life, or perhaps just a current, interim, in-the-moment thing that will be helpful or fulfilling for a short time, or serve as a useful next step. 

It is equally important that you be clear about why you want it.  What are your true motivations, and are they really for the highest and best? So this card is also about being conscious of what you would do and have, and of your impact on the world.  I think we could all spend a little more time on this one.  Or a lot more, if we were smart.  Oh well.

~ Then, once that first, more internal step is completed, the Ace of Spears directs you to use strong, clean, clear, non-repressive and non-repressed masculine energy as your model − think Dalai Lama, maybe? – and simply go after your wish or goal confidently, firmly and directly.  (So it’s assertive rather than aggressive.)  Know what you want for a new beginning.  Pursue it.  Yourself.  Today!

What is your new beginning?  Be clear in what you want.  Be clear about the why of it.  Go after it directly, the way anyone with a strong, positive masculine drive would.  Do something concrete about it today. 

Bright blessings and blissings and beautiful, knowing beginnings!

All I remember is holding on to the elevator asking it politely to stop spinning

    Sure. Like that’s never happened to you or something.


  3. Donna Allen Says:

    To ME? (Actually, I was politely talking to the floor.)

  4. shamanspath Says:

    Uh, Huh.

    The Lakeland Civic Theatre presented one of Oscar Wilde’s plays, “An Ideal Husband”, in September and October. We went to see it yesterday. (Only five bucks for the Sunday matinee!) It was really so very enjoyable. One character reminded me SO much of you! Facial expressions…attitude…nonchalance…funny as all get out. Yesterday’s performance was the final one…otherwise, I’d twist your arm to get you to “see yourself on stage.”

  6. shamanspath Says:

    Thanks. But one is enough.

  7. Donna Allen Says:

    One resemblance I failed to mention: “He” is quite brilliant…but gives no indication that he knows he is.

  8. shamanspath Says:

    Oh. So we’re not quite so much alike. Then.

  9. Donna Allen Says:

    You’re a brilliant KNUCKLEHEAD!!!
