Daily Tarot ~ August 29

Temperance

The Cauldron of Annwn

 

 

Fortune Cookie: Take stock of how you want your life to evolve.  Begin moving in that direction slowly, evenly, comfortably, braiding together the old with the new but evolving forward until only the new exists.

 

 

This card last showed up all the way back on Christmas day.  So let’s all think of Wednesday as Christmas in August, shall we?

 

Temperance is not necessarily an Aquarian’s favorite card.  But it is good advice.  This card says very directly how it would have you go about the day:

 

temperately, calmly, easily, neither striving to leap over tall buildings in a single bound nor being a slug and hiding under the covers till dinner. [I’ve already got dibs on that space.]

It’s a card that counsels you to guard against thoselittle wee tendencies to go toextremes − even supposedly positive ones.  Seek moderation today, and patience, and perhaps even a touch of diplomacy, no matter how much you might wish to just nuke the silly m#%@%@f**&##@s [that’s the Ukrainian spelling] and be done with it!

 

When this card shows up in a reading, I often suggest that the client may be on the cusp of a substantial change.

 

BUT the way to best and most positively bring the change into being is to

go about the transformation slowly, thoughtfully: braiding or blending together the old with the new until, over an appropriate time, the new alone becomes who you are and what you do.

So you don’t end up like this.

Unless you really want to.

 

 

It’s a card of making profound and helpful changes slowly, by not throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

 

 

[For pity’s sake, though, DO let yourself begin the process of change.  Don’t let yourself be a sitting duck where you are.] [Editor grabs my right wrist, slams it onto table to prevent Google search for duck image.]

[Editor loses.]

 

So, let yourself explore how you would like your life to be, and how you would wish to move in positive new directions.

 

Then stop and honestly take stock of who you are, where you are and how you have gotten there.  

 

Specifically acknowledge the good parts, the successful aspects, the skills, abilities and characteristics that are worth keeping and using and developing as you go forward. 

 

And blend them into the new you that is coming onto being.

 

Good things to be about on a Christmas day, no matter what spiritual path you may follow.

 

Bright blessings and timely, comfortable and comforting emergings!
