Daily Tarot ~ January 19

Six of Shields

Castle of Maidens

Fortune Cookie: Know what you would bring back to into your life, for the highest and best.  Know that now, today is the day when that renewal, that reconnection, that return, can begin.

This card last showed up for Christmas Eve.  So what (beside hanging stockings with care, or planning for Chinese food and a movie) was occupying you that day?  Might that same energy or focus be cycling back in some way now?

Pretty much any reader will tell you that the Six of Shields betokens generosity, charitable acts and material gain. Sounds good for today.  Some might also indicate it’s a sign that you will soon reach a position where you feel you can help others.  (Always good!)

In my readings, I’m often intuitively prompted to take the interpretation a bit farther and in a slightly different direction.  [Which of you nastynosed skroots said, “What else is new?” Eh? Eh?] [Eh?] I’m likely to say something like:

Okay. Yo!  Focus for a minute!

Let your inner vision move back and forth in time across your life.

Something that is yours by right

that was lost or taken from you

will be restored to you in full.

So today, right now, this moment let yourself attend to what that might be and how it can most happily be brought into being — for the highest and best, of course.  

This card can apply to many different people and aspects of life [and really is very timely during Winter, when we may begin to feel a tiddly taddly that things aren’t as happy and bright as our ideals would once have had them be], such as:

~ the artist who (thinks he) has lost his Muse

~ the investor who (fears she) has lost her basis

~ the manager who (believes he) has lost connection to his artistic side

~ the writer who (worries she) has lost her hope of prosperity

It can even imply a return of misappropriated property, a renewal of a sundered relationship, or the reopening of a realm of hopefulness that seemed long gone.

So the important thing to do is − without bludgeoning yourself!! − scan your life and acknowledge what it is you fear has been lost to you, or what you have in fact lost. Then let yourself understand that

TODAY is the day

you can renew that connection, revivify that dream, and reconnect with that hope.

By the way, some readers feel that this card tells us to be attentive to the possibility of helpful intervention by/through positive masculine energy.  So keep an eye out for that.  And if it’s there, for God’s sake, accept it!

Know what you would bring back into your life, for the highest and best.  Know that this moment is the time when that renewal, that reconnection, that return, can begin.  Go from there!

Bright blessings, joy and light!

Thought for the Day: …There is, I think, humour here which does not translate well from English into sanity. ~ Jim Butcher

Today’s Weather:  The children and the flowers. Sprigs of fresh rosemary for good cheer, and lavender-chocolate for soothing.  Chai-ai-ai-ai.
