Tarot Card ~ December 13

December 12, 2010

Ace of Swords

Sword of Strange Hangings 

  

Fortune Cookie:  Undertake a quest for a new beginning in a way that is firm yet considerate of the law: WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND!  

  

  

This card last turned for us way back in May.  And just a month before that. And less than two weeks before that.  So, aside from me, IS THERE ANYBODY NOT PAYING SUFFICIENT ATTENTION TO THIS CARD?  I mean it.  Really!  Own up.  Right.  Attention.  Right?  Right. 

 

All right, boys and girls, ALL TOGETHER NOW:

Aces in any Tarot deck are cards of a new beginning.

  

Therefore:

~ How can you (how do you need to) begin your life anew, today, right now?

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

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

  

When the Ace of Swords comes up in a reading, as it did in a big way for a client earlier this week, I say something like:

  

Your new beginning has to do with going on an adventure, of giving yourself permission to go after something that really sets your heart and soul on fire. 

Please understand, if you undertake this quest, it very well may involve the release of some element of your life that no longer serves you. 

  

Should you find that to be the case, strive to let the release be as quick and clean as possible, a very skillful surgery.

 

I’ll stand by that. 

 

But as I’ve worked with clients who have had this card come up, I’ve also come to perceive that the adventure, the new beginning and the release tend to have an aspect of destiny to them: we often find that the person has reached a point where they must make some choices to move forward in order to evolve as their life offers them the potential to do. 

 

And what I often see is, in doing so, they do very well to remember that even big changes can be initiated and made without creating negative karma.  And I’m going to keep telling myself that until I believe it.

 

By the way, I have also found that this card betokens a positive outcome for skillfully undertaken literal surgery. 

  

(And for some people, the adventure they decide to go on, and the “surgery” of the release they decide to make, can lead to a profound healing of the romantic side of life as well.)

 

What is your new beginning?  What adventure does your destiny call you to − beginning today?   What may you be called to release? 

  

Undertake your quest in a way that is firm yet considerate of the law:

WHAT GOES AROUND

COMES AROUND  

  

Bright blessings and joyous adventures!

Tarot Card ~ December 12

December 12, 2010

Page of Cups

The Salmon

Cortune Fookie: Know what wisdom you seek. Begin or ramp up your search or endeavor now. Give your creativity more free play in your life.  Now!

 

 

 

Saw this fellow last in early September.  It’s a card with counsel that’s good for a regular reminding.  So can we all try to pay a little contention this time?  Huh?

In Celtic legend, Salmon is considered the wisest of all creatures.  He dwells in a great well overhung by the Hazel, the tree of knowledge.  As the fruit (hazel nuts) of the tree drop into the well, Salmon eats of them, growing 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. Not tomorrow.  Not next week.  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!
