Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Tarot Card of the Week – Oct. 27 – November 2

The Three of Wands

A vision is not just a picture of what could be;
it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more.

— Rosabeth Moss Kanter (American business speaker and consultant )

In the numerology of the Tarot, threes are the expansion cards, the creative growth that comes from the initiative of One combined with the duality of Two. The threes represent manifestation and synthesis. Of course, Wands are Fire: the qualities of creativity, action, growth and passion.

Arthur Waite describes this card saying, “Here we see a calm, stately personage, with his back turned, looking from a cliff’s edge at the ships passing over the sea. Three staves are planted in the ground, and he leans slightly on one of them.”

From the Two of Wands, which is the time of deciding, the figure has launched his dreams and choices into real action. With a calm confidence, in the golden light, he waits for the arrival of success, for he knows he has earned it.

In the DruidCraft Tarot, authors Stephanie and Philip Carr-Gomm point out that in the times of the sailing ships, such commercial enterprises were a gigantic risk, incredibly expensive and an investment that could take years to realize – sometimes years without any word of progress. Yet if their ships returned safely home, the owners stood to gain enormous wealth and power.

This week, be looking for results that are the culmination of your prior planning and foresight. And consider how plans made at this time will pay off for you later. Are you willing to wait patiently for your desire? How might you offer your leadership and skill towards a better future?

This week marks the observance of Samhain, the ancient Celtic New Year. The old comes to an end, and we stand upon the threshold of what is yet to be. It is traditional to look back at such a time, but this card urges us to look ahead.

Use this magical period to make plans now that will pay off for you later. What vision nurtures your better self? This is the time to see the big picture of your life, and lay the groundwork for a long-term, successful future. What are you hoping to attract to yourself through your best energy and effort? With whom do you wish to share your energy and passion, and to what course of action are you ready to commit?

Use your creative visualization to name and know your deepest desires this week. If the vision is indeed the call to become something better, you have the golden blessings of the Universe.

May your desire return to you threefold.

    I have removed a post from “xyle101” which was a generic post to “Hi, Blogger!” and was in fact just an ad for a psychic website.

    It’s a fine line between offering valuable information, tips, and favorite sites (which I encourage y’all to do!) and simply spamming us with advertising..

    I may make mistakes (xyle101,if that’s true, state your case!), but I reserve the right to remove comments that are not real contributions to the conversations here.
