The cotd for Wednesday, January 14, 2015 is from The Druid Craft Tarot by Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm, Illustrated by Will Worthington.
The message of The Lord is: Take control of your life and offer clear and firm boundaries to those who depend on you. Lead your life by being true to your values and you will accomplish great things.
“The structure needed for success. The Lord offers you success and accomplishment, but his power must be tempered by other factors. In addition to his strong will, his ability to think clearly and rationally, and his adherence to principles.” ~companion book~
Boundaries. Boundaries are one of the most important concepts that we can decide and set for ourselves, and they can be the most difficult to establish. The thing about boundaries is, they are only as good as they are enforced. We can say we set boundaries but when we allow them to be breached or otherwise violated, they become a useless waste of our resources. Why did we even bother in the first place? Boundaries must be set and maintained in order for them to work properly. If we do not enforce the ‘boundary’ rules and regulations (which we established in the first place) we cannot expect them to be respected or abided by, by anyone.
