Daily Tarot ~ February 9

February 9, 2012

Six of Cups

In Ector’s Keeping

Fortune Cookie: Easy, sweet, nostalgic in a positive way, calm and comforting ~ that’s the theme to get you through the day.

Okay kids. We saw this card last exactly a week ago.  So obviously, one of you wasn’t taking this information seriously.  Naughty, naughty, boo-hiss-bugger! 

It’s kind of a just right card for the season. Any season. Even if it is a bit chilly. Or soggy. Or you are a bit chilly. Or soggy. Or maybe both.  Maybe.

Anyway, it’s a great card for today!

As I always say to my clients, “Remember when you were eight years old and summer lasted forever, and all you really had to do was love your dog, hang out with your friends and dream about how wonderful the world could be?”  

Well, that’s the energy and essence of this card as I see it.

The Six of Cups is a card that bespeaks the beauty and the joy and the innocence and the wisdom of an almost ideal childhood.  So in your connections and interactions today:

Look for a quality like that in all those you meet.  If you can’t find it, you’re probably not with the right people.  Period.

So, if it’s at all possible given the day, keep on moving till you’re with someone or someones whose energy is those wonderful things — even if the someones are, say, the masses of house sparrows gratefully noshing at the feeder in your back garden.  Or a covey of tourists flocking upon your favorite art museum. Let yourself share in that vibe and be happy and comfortable — and assume that you deserve to be there!

Try to find new ways for yourself to be a calm, still, comforting pool in the center of the manic muddle around you.  Especially give yourself permission to be that way to and for yourselfCall to mind all that which is and has been beautiful, and hopeful, and healing in your world, and keep those things flowing through your being.  (If you do Reiki, for example, start Reikiing yourself and every freaking thing in your vicinity the moment you read this, and keep going from there.)  

Also, this is a card that suggests you may have old friends re-enter your life.  Be open to that as a wondrous possibility today.  And take  the time to enjoy it if it comes. 

Easy, sweet, nostalgic in a positive way, calm and comforting ~ try to give yourself that today.  Better still… try to BE it today.

Brightest, happiest blessings!
