Daily Tarot ~ January 11

Three of Spears

The Horse Fair

Fortune Cookie: Own your most amazing and idealistic dreams.  Exert the power YOU possess to pursue them — through very practical means.

As I have said other times in this blog, I’m not utterly above spooking clients when this card comes up.  I glance at it darkly, lean forward to scan it more carefully, and whisper,

“Oh Bugger!!” under my breath.

Or I say: Ahhhhhh… This is a card of very special inspiration.

[Then I count to fifteen while thinking:  Let ’em chew on THAT for a while!  Nyah—Nyah! Nyah—Nyah! Nyah!]


Blogging really does allow occasional over-indulgence here, dunnit? 

Oh well.

Saw this card almost exactly three months ago. So here’s our winter dose, I guess.

Once again, please remember that threes in any Tarot deck are power cards, or rather, that the issue the card is addressing is one of power, even if it doesn’t seem so on the surface.  Typically, a three would counsel things like

~ beware power games,

~ be prepared for power struggles,

~ watch out for failure to own your power  −

   or, better,






~ have a care againstdisempowerment

   in any area of life, whether by the action

   of others, or by your own action

   or inaction

~ empower yourself

~ empower those you love and believe in

~ accept the challenge of owning ALL of

   what you are and who you can be

Simple, really.  [I keep telling myself that.  Over and over.  And over. And it IS getting better.  A bit.  Sort of.  If you kinda squint, y’know?]

The Three of Spears as I see it is a mentoring-kinda card; it gives very specific direction, albeit in a big, global sense.   It says:

Be ruthlessly practical

in pursuit of

a MUCH higher ideal.  



As most of you know, the Tarot deck I use is Legend, the Arthurian Tarot.

In my story of the card, which depicts The Horse Fair, I see a young King Arthur having the brilliant insight that, to finally hold the throne, and then to more effectively secure his entire kingdom, he must resurrect a strong cavalry wing (from the old Roman days) and make that the centerpiece of his armed forces.

Having decided so, he would then have to go to Britain’s great horse fair and be ruthlessly objective in his examination of each animal, knowing that the future of Camelot might well rest on that very creature’s shoulders.  

So?  So:

Envision your most exalted possibilities,

your highest potential achievement

your most deeply and dearly held hopes

for the Highest and Best. 

Set your goal

Then literally, practically, ruthlessly,

holding your nose to the necessary grindstone(s),

do the things required to achieve your will  − IF you are truly clear that your will is for the Highest and Best! 

Own your most amazing and idealistic dreams.  Exert the power YOU possess to pursue them through practical means.  (One horse at a time, if necessary.) 

Bright blessings and amazing achievements!

Quote for the Day:  Well, I never been to much school, you understand, but it seems to me that you’re assuming something you shouldn’t assume… that God sees the world like you do; one thing at a time, from just one spot. Seems to me that he’s supposed to be everywhere, know everything. …Think about that; he knows what you’re feeling, how you’re hurting. Feels my pain, your pain like it was his own. Hell son, the question isn’t how God could care about just one person; question is, how could he not?” – Jake the Janitor (AKA Uriel) ~ Jim Butcher

Today’s Weather:  Tweedlebop moonstorms and toaring rorbies. Wield a Hogwarts backpack full of Little Debbie pentadimensional cream puffs to repel goblins.

On This Date: 1949 – First recorded case of snowfall in Los Angeles, California.
