Cards in Our Lives
So, the Card of the Day today is the 3 of Wands from the sumptuous Tarot Illuminati by Kim Huggens (writer) & Erik C. Dunne (artist). When this card appears it usually means "keep on keeping on" or you're doing great, but don't drop the ball. It encourages further planning towards whatever goal(s) you've got your eye on, as well as an expansion of horizons, an opening to new ideas and possibilities, a little thinking "out of the box." It may also be telling you to pay attention to any premonitions or intuitions regarding the future road towards your goal.
Today , though, I had another insight into this card; I was a bit annoyed while driving this morning when I had to stop on a somewhat busy street because a woman had her car door open, as she was getting something out, blocking the lane I was in. I shouted something to her about closing her door and she shouted something back. Just after I detoured around her and got back into my lane, I caught myself. What was that about, I wondered? Why get so riled over nothing? It cost me about an extra minute of travel time in the end! I realized I'd been acting from impulse and habit - a Knight of Swords sort of behavior. Then I thought about the message of today's card the 3 of Wands, regarding planning and forethought. I realized its message could be applied to any kind of behavior - not just the planning of projects or goals, but to daily behavior too. A little pause before jumping into a fray, a little thinking about consequences and results before acting or speaking is good advice. Now this little vinette had no major consequences, though it certainly didn't brighten anyone's day - in fact, it probably was a little negative push in the wrong direction for both the woman and myself. Maybe if I'd kept the 3 of Wands in mind as I left the house and went about my morning, I would have created a better one both for me and the woman on the road. Just my little glimpse of the possibilities of Tarot in daily action.
