Daily Tarot ~ January 4

Queen of Spears

Dindrane

Fortune Cookie:  What is your unique personal sacred quest?  How can you recommit to it, know it more fully, and take a concrete step toward it today? How can you open to that in you which is compassionate, kind, healing, artistic, gentle, honorable, mystical – and let those qualities become the pillars of your strength?

We last saw four months ago almost to the day. What a great card for frozen-as-all-be-buggered day in Ohio. 

This is in fact such a valuable card for our world at this time, and  congruent with what I’m seeing as a big need for many, many clients — it even turned up for a guy I read for late last year. I’m grateful to have it come ’round again.

Some readers find the Queen of Spears to be a dark, kind, friendly and honorable woman, or any person whose energy reflects those qualities.

Not. Even. Funny.

Nope.

Others see her as a person of deep spiritual strength, one who encourages the higher aspirations of others.  I like that.  Still others find her to be the archetypal shepherdessor one known for mysticism and visionary experiences.

Okay.  This one I can work with.

I perceive the Queen of Spears to be the card of the feminine sacred questAlthough most people don’t know it or remember it – even the ones who have read Arthurian legends since childhood – there was one lone woman who was among those great seekers who traveled and quested for the Holy Grail.

She was Dindrane, Sir Percivale’s sister.  A princess and an anchoress − in Christianity, a woman who chooses to withdraw from the world to live a solitary life of prayer − she was a most helpful spiritual director, motivator and advisor to the only knights who did in fact ultimately achieve the Grail quest. 

In our culture, as in most cultures over the past 5,000 years, it is generally the guys who go off questing, pursuing the sacred, etc., etc., etc. blah, blah, blah.  Or at least it’s the fellas whose stories get told.  Time for that to change, and also time for us  penile Americans to aspire to, embrace and foster the divine feminine.

I may weep.

Sigh.

Although, now that I think about it…

Nemmind.

THEREFORE today, and throughout the remaining month of spring at the very least:

Ladies: each of you, what is your unique personal sacred quest?  How can you recommit to it, know it more fully, and take a concrete step toward it today?

Gentlemen [and I use the term loosely]: how can you open to that in you which is congruent with the energy of the Divine Feminine — compassionate, kind, healing, artistic, gentle, honorable, mystical – and let those qualities become the pillars of your strength?

Today, mind!

Bright blessings and the touch of the beautifully and deeply sacred!
