Card of the Day 1

Each day, I will draw a card from a different deck and post here my reflections

8 of Wands, Fey Tarot.

In my card, I see a lively green fey, leaping from branch to branch.  Everything about her suggests rapid movement and a seizing of opportunities before they pass her by.

Her stance suggests that she is attentive but also aware of the need for caution.  She has picked the most sustainable branch to stand upon, but swiftly seeks another to support her progress.

In working matters, we must also adopt this attitude.  This card’s energy suggests that  by remaining attentive we can make use of opportunities that present themselves, while sustaining future growth.

Her outfit may appear frivolous, with bells hanging merrily from her skirts and hat.  But what great publicity for her venture; she literally announces her presence, a vibrant and energetic force to be reckoned with!   The little bells remind me of apples, a symbol of fertility and abundance.  In fact, everything about this image suggests growth.

When this card appears in your spread, know that opportunities are all around.  Even if one door has closed forever, another may be opening just beyond your current vision, so use all your senses.  But beware, the influence of 8 Wands is often short lived.  No time to dither; know what you want, exercise due diligence and then grasp your opportunity before it is lost to you.
