S'up Lovelies! I pulled some cards for the week, let's do this:
- Seven of Wands - This is a card of courage, it shows up in readings - not to denote a confrontation - but to strengthen your resolve in meeting the challenges that are coming to you. You can defend your beliefs without being defensive, and you will have the support you need.
- Two of Swords - This card is all about balance and stabilization. It also shows up in readings to herald a time for peace following confusion or conflict. You are being asked to calm your mind, to feel grounded in the choices you have made and to make your own sanctuary (mentally and spiritually speaking), this self awareness allows you to move forward and make progress.
- The Fool - Our buddy the Fool here always turns up when we make a new beginning or journey. He represents innocence, starting along a new path in which enlightenment is the only goal. This is about fresh starts, renewed energy and second chances.
My first reaction to this reading when I pulled it was a sarcastic, 'Ohhhhhhh. Oh, NO SHIT, TAROT'.
I don't think it would surprise any of you (*cough* the four of you who read this *cough*) that I pulled a card marking a call for courage during a time of conflict and challenge; and right on it's heels, a call for stability and peace - served with a huge helping of self-awareness and self-governance; and then here comes the Fool strolling up to remind us that we have a fresh opportunity to make things right, to start over - and hopefully, in spite of ourselves, not fuck things up so bad this time around. Seems pretty clear, eh?
Anyways, that's my take. Let's have a week, shall we? Happy Turkey and/or Tofurkey Day!!
