Daily Tarot ~ April 9

Death
The Wild Hunt
Fortune Cookie:  It’s simply, absolutely time for a radical transformation.  Embrace that. You may, at times, feel like you are riding the whirlwind.  Remember ~ you are riding, not being ridden!
Okay.  Breathe!  Breathe!!!  Nice and easy.  Breathe!  That’s right.  Good.  Easy.  Deep breaths. Now…
Believe it or not, this is the first time this card has turned for the Daily Tarot bun fight and festival of mutual regard.  And, as any Tarot reader worth his, her, or its salt will tell ya, the card doesn’t necessarily betoken death. But it does serve to call attention to the fact that a change, probably even a radical and/or substantial one, needs to occur.
Some readers would say that this card warns to be careful of inertia, or lethargy. Others would counsel to remember that life is cyclical, to seek and be ready for a new beginning.
Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, recommends separating the self from the past in order to start anew, a major and necessary change, one that may raise fear of the unknown, but which stimulates growth and heralds the dawn of a positive cycle.  We likes that, do!
Me?  Thought you’d never ask. In some versions of Olde Celtic spirituality, souls did not usually cross over immediately after death.  Rather, they waited near their place of life until Winter Solstice Eve when Gwyn and the Wilde Hunt would come riding the storms of winter to collect the waiting spirits and take them on to the Land of Apples, or the other realms of their appropriate rewards.
So, if I were reading for you, as I am, of course, I’d say something like:
Lookee here, y’all…  It is time for a radical change, but not necessarily one of loss and grieving. In having the courage to make the change, you may feel at times like you have hopped on to a huge whirlwind and have to ride that sucker for the sake of your life.  But remember: YOU ARE RIDING, not being ridden.  Surf that sucker like the incredible, amazing, invincible starborn banzai surfer you are!  And you will find yourself moving on to and into a wonderful, beautiful dawning more full of hope and joy than you could ever have imagined. Truly!
So: Accept that it’s time for a radical transformation. If you feel like you are riding the whirlwind, hop on!  Go for it and RIDE into a beautiful new beginning!
Bright blessings and nurturing waves!
Quote for the Day: I USHERED SOULS INTO THE NEXT WORLD. I WAS THE GRAVE OF ALL HOPE. I WAS THE ULTIMATE REALITY. I WAS THE ASSASSIN AGAINST WHOM NO LOCK WOULD HOLD.  Yes, point taken, but do you have any particular skills? [Death consults a job broker] ~ Terry Pratchett

Texts from last Night: need you to do me a favor… hide my sword from me tonight… planning on drinking my weight in vodka… don’t trust myself enough to not run through campus screaming “I AM SPARTA!”
