The cotd for Wednesday, June 5, 2013 comes from the Tarot Lovers’ Tarot by Karyn Easton.
sub-title: "Go Team! Go!"
Keywords: Rising to the challenge, overcoming obstacles, being in charge of one’s inner emotions, self control, courage. The virtue of fortitude.
Depending upon your frame of mind, today may prove to be very challenging and you just wished it would be over, or you tackle those challenges with finesse and efficiency. So, start it off right and get to tackling instead of being the tackled. Offense IS the best defense.
“The Strength card is one of self control, willpower, strength of character, and maintaining nerves of steel in any difficult situation. Try to think of the Strength card in terms of fire. At first, man was burned by fire and then he learned how to control it, but he never ever lost his respect for its destructive power. In this sense, you are mastering situations, circumstances, and events, and if at any time you have got your fingers burned, you will have learned from the experience and ensure this does not happen again in the future.” pg. 30
Today’s combo: Strength, Queen of Wands, Nine of Wands. What’s the rest of the story? What do you see? I see, “Go Team! Go! Your determined to accomplish a lot today (and I am) and the energy of the Queen will help to keep you on track. Tap into your strength reserves, as you’re going to need it, but determination and discipline will win the day!”
