Today’s card reminds that there is so much to love about Tarot. This is why I enjoy teaching it! I get to help others dive into the cards to find their own meanings.
Here is the Medieval Cat Tarot Cat Tarot with one of my favorite interpretations of the Three of Wands. Classically this card shows someone standing on the shore watching their ship. Is it coming in or going out? Well, that’s in the eye of the reader really.
In this card, though, our intrepid cat is not watching. He is getting ready to launch. He has his boat to set sail. He has his spy glass to watch it as it heads out for parts unknown.
Sometimes we have to do that. Build something as intricate as this cat’s boat and then just let go of it. Send it off to see what will happen.
If you are a writer, you know this all too well. The thing that is harder than writing? Waiting for a response from an editor or an agent or even a beta reader.
What project do you have that you haven’t yet released? I know what mine is. I keep finding all sorts of reasons not to send it out. I fear my ship might sink.
But, like this cat knows, a ship that never sails isn’t a ship after all.
What do you need to let sail?
What will you let go of today?
Seek joy, y’all! Pass it on.
