What a way to get back to my neglected daily draw.
The Eight of Wands tells me to tie up my loose ends so I can move forward unhindered.
Look at those wonderful wands, gliding through the air, all aerodynamic. Beautiful. This card is wand-like, in that it’s powerful and sparky, but it also feels sword-like – the wands cut through the air, straight like arrows, focused, clear.
I’ve drawn the card at my desk, on my first day back after a Christmas break. It’s a great card for this new year desk-hitting moment – I wasn’t able to wrap up every 2013 project before finishing for the holidays, and I have new projects ready to begin.
The Eight of Wands encourages me to spend this first week tying up the old projects, so that I’m then able to give proper focus and energy to the new.
I’m a 30-something writer, artist, tarot reader, and perpetual explorer of the space between thought, feeling, and action.
I believe that spirituality and ritual are for everybody. I’m about the journey, in all of its messy, non-linear, chaotic iterations. I am excited by anticapitalist business and living with my whole entire self present. I use tarot cards to bring forth hidden truth, and ritual to affirm my commitment, over and over, to my ever-shifting path.
