Tarot Card ~ August 23

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.




Okay, okay, okay. Who wasn’t paying attention on Saturday when this card showed up? Huh? Huh? And may one ask, HOW COME? Huh? Now, because of you, we ALL have to go through the same lesson ALL over again. Jeeez!

[Probably just as well. I didn’t pay all that much mind meself.]

As those of you who have read this blog for even a short while, like, three 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 prompts 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 two things of you 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. Sez I.

~ 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, hopefully, firmly and directly. (So it’s assertive rather than aggressive.)

Know what you want for that 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!

Today’s Weather: The walnettosphere predicts currant precipitation. Or possibly blueberry.

On This Date: 1784 – Western North Carolina (now eastern Tennessee) declares itself an independent state under the name of Franklin; it wasn’t accepted into the United States, and only lasted for four years. [I hate it when that happens!]

There are 130 days remaining until the end of the year.

    Wow. The message that came to me with lightening speed: I want to be happy. I want others to be happy. (THAT’s what I want!) Therefore, practice compassion. And what a beautiful masculine role model of the energy of compassion ….the Dalai Lama.

    Again, wow.

    Thank you! ~ ~ Donna
