Daily Tarot, April 6

Eight Of Spears

The White Hart

Fortune Cookie: How can you liberate yourself, your creativity, your spirit today?  What do you need or what can you do so that you can  JUST GO FOR IT!!!?  [And not get arrested, of course.]

We last saw this card almost exactly a year ago to the day!  It’s a good card to have come up in any season. 

Liberation is important to us all in our day to day lives. It can involve freedom from from prejudice and hate, but also, from preconception and emotional baggage.  So please bear those elements in mind as you review what the card has to offer. 

As I have said before [and I now realize I say with conspicuous regularity], “Ahhhhhh, yes.  Yepper, yepper, yep, yessirino!  Another card where my interpretation veers semi-wildly off in a direction of its own.”

My offering about this card is based on a Shamanic Journey I once did asking about its meaning.  (To find out more about Journeying, see the category of Shamanism on my web page, at http://shamanspath.org/index_ShamanicJourneyIntro.htm.)

Other readers give this card meanings like speed, action, movement toward opportunity, a test of skill, and an adventure.  It’s considered a good omen

So if any of those are what you need today, by all means grab ’em and run!  Run!!!

I see the Eight of Spears as the card of utter, total complete liberation.  It’s an indicator that it is time for you to explore for yourself:

how it is that you may give yourself

more freedom to

go where you want to go

when you want to go there

by the means and

at the speed of your own choosing.

Given that, you KNOW my questions if you were my client would start with something like,

SO!  How are you keeping yourself confined? 

How are you confining yourself in ways that are no longer appropriate for who you have become and what you may give to the world?

How can you open yourself to a liberation − in your thinking, your behavior, your belief in what is possible and your understanding of how you may go about achieving that possibility?

 Please remember that one way in which you may need to… um, try something different is to just freakin’ go for it.  It may be a little uncomfortable, but at least it’s owning who you are and freeing yourself up so you can move along YOUR path. [Harm to none and love for all, of course.] 


How can you liberate yourself, your creativity, your spirit today?  What do you need or what can you do so that you can  JUST GO FOR IT!!!?

Bright, free, inspiring blessings!

Quote for the Day: We must be what we are, or we become our enemies.   ~ Guy Gavriel Kay, from A Song for Arbonne

Today’s Weather: Owls on the ramparts waiting for a cue.  And a snack break.  Steady….  Steady….

On This Date: 1327 – The poetPetrarch first sees his idealized love, Laura, in the church of Saint Clare in Avignon. [High school students have been punished for this experience ever since.]

See? Petrarch wore a hoodie!

Texts from Last Night: Curled up in fetal position, trying not to throw up or think about my future, and humming songs from musicals to myself. You?
