Card of the Week: 10 OF SWORDS suggests that we may all have to fight feelings of persecution. Standing up for what is right will save us.
This week’s deck is the Steele Wizard Tarot by Pamela Steele. She is presently working on a deck suitable for children too.

AQUARIUS PAGE OF SWORDS New project potential. Open your mind to doing something fresh and young. Your thoughts should be focused on the new not the old. PISCES EIGHT OF CUPS To move forward, you must leave the past. Stop drinking from stale cups of old sadness. Move to the joy. Move to the now. ARIES HERMIT Who do you follow? Who follows you? Make sure you are putting forth the brightest light if you want the brightest seekers. TAURUS NINE OF SWORDS Anxiety over what you can’t control is a waste of time. WASTE OF TIME. Learn to release what you can’t change. Live. GEMINI EIGHT OF SWORDS Are you in a prison you created? Check your thought patterns. How can you rethink this? Move your thoughts to free yourself. CANCER JUDGMENT Time to get serious about things. Focus on clearing the spiritual clutter. Let go of that which no longer serves. Cut anchors. LEO FIVE OF SWORDS Careful please. Teaching them a lesson means you learn one too. Try a gentler approach. See if everyone can get away unscathed. VIRGO KING OF SWORDS Mental readiness wins By keeping your thoughts clear and focused, you will be seen as a leader. Think yourself forward. LIBRA MAGICIAN When you use all your tools, you create magic. Avant-garde methods may raise eyebrows, but the results will be worth it. SCORPIO TOWER What goes up, must come down if you are not building it correctly. Self-deceits are the worst. Get honest or pay the price. SAGITTARIUS MAIDEN OF SWORDS Something needs a fresh approach. Maybe a new set of eyes. Get creative. Be innovative. The silly monkey wins. CAPRICORN HANGED MAN Work needs you. Home needs you. Give each time but don’t forget some time out for yourself. Meditate. Yoga. Quiet.
Today’s card is one of the most recognizable in the Tarot. Even those who aren’t versed in Tarot can tell you the name of this one usually. In Pamela Steele’s fabulous Steele Wizard Tarot, her Fool faces a decision. Take the known road or the unknown. Should she or he follow the dragonfly (I think that’s a dragonfly) off into the distance not knowing if the path actually will go over the mountains?
How often do we come to these tiny (and not so tiny) crossroads. Think back on your life and choices made. What if you had stayed in that “not healthy for anyone” relationship? What if you hadn’t got fired? What if you had finished your business major instead of cutting class to become an itinerant musician? What if you let go of all of the what if’s and just wandered?
What if I told you that every mistake wasn’t?
What if I told you that every hard choice wasn’t?
What if I told you that where you are, right now, is the exact spot you are supposed to be in this very moment?
It doesn’t mean you are trapped. There will always be at least two roads to travel.
The one you know.
The one you don’t.
It doesn’t matter which one you pick, you see. That’s the Fool’s secret. This journey that we are all on leads us to the lessons and loves and lives that we need. Trust in the journey.
Whether you walk with God or the Gods or any version in-between, trust your Higher Spirit. You are being guided. You are being loved. You are on the right path.
And? You know what? If you don’t like this place where you are right now?
You have a choice. Want some help making that choice? See me for a reading via Skype, phone or email.

Today’s card brings me a valuable lesson. I saved a quote earlier this morning thinking it might come in handy for today’s card. Then I drew from my brand new first edition Steele Wizard Tarot (yes, I’m excited.)
Last night I drew a card for meditation and got the King of Swords. This morning, while shuffling, the King of Pentacles popped out. I poked him back in (oh yes I did!). Then I pulled the King of Cups.
