Tarot Card for the Day ~ June 29

June 28, 2009

Knight of Cups


This fellow showed up for us less than a week ago.  I guess I wasn’t paying attention.  Lessee if I can listen better this time. How ’bout you?

I think of this as the card of the sacred quest

Therefore, if you have been feeling that your life really isn’t going in the direction you and God [or The Universe, the Universal Life Force, the Big Enchilada, Madonna, The Voice of John Cleese, George Clooney − whoever] agreed to before you accepted birth this time around:


Don’t you think it’s time to reconnect and GET GOING?

Some readers might interpret the Knight of Cups as the coming of a messenger, advancement in the world, or a graceful but not warlike person of great masculine energy [think Baryshnikov, I guess].  Others could say it indicates someone (maybe you?) ingenious, full of original ideas.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck I use, feels this card betokens a tempting proposal which deserves serious consideration.  Also, an approaching opportunity for advancement.  Or an unexpected gift.  So if something like that crosses your path today, assume you deserve it, accept it fully and gratefully, and run with it! 

I still like my intuitive interpretation best.

Think upon the commitments for this lifetime

 That you made before you came into being. 


Determine the next few steps

to keep you moving along that path –

or the first steps that will be necessary

to move you back onto that path. 

And get going.

Bright blessings and remembrance of your sacred self!  

Quote for the Day: “When your Daemon is in charge, do not try to think consciously.  Drift, wait and obey.  ~ Rudyard Kipling  [Kipling believed that he had a Daemon or Muse – who worked with him, providing artistic guidance and direction. He felt that when he obeyed he was rewarded.]
