Today’s card reminds me that inspiration comes in many forms. I’m tired this morning. I mean really whipped. I did a three hour reading marathon last night and forgot to take water or bring some nibbles. So I read for three hours without ever getting up. Not even stretch breaks.
So my inspiration to write anything this morning hasn’t been there. I realized I needed some Ace of Wands energy. And this card is such a marvelous rendition of that energy. Illumination is the title James Wanless gives this card. It is from his classic Voyager Tarot.
What really gets me is how the hand itself is lit up. All the energy outside is coming in and the energy inside is heading out. Symbiotic.
What I put out comes back to me. That’s actually part of my spiritual beliefs. It’s no small reason as to why I seek joy and urge others to do so as well. What we put out we get back.
If you were to inspire someone today, what would you inspire them to do? For me, right now, my best offering might be a really spectacular nap. Grin! But truly, if I can just maintain my steady joy seeking, then I’m happy.
Illuminate me. What are you sending out to bring back in today?
