Nine of Wands7/19 – a 9♣ day:

Keywords are:
DEFENDING
PERSEVERING

This card reminds me of Cool Hand Luke when he is in the fight but keeps getting back up. It has the essence of the zen quote: ‘Fall down seven times, stand up eight.’ It encourages perseverance in the midst of struggle. It also reminds me of a Beckett quote: ‘Ever tried. Ever Failed. Nevermind. Try again. Fail better.’

Today think about what is unnecessary that you are carrying. Is there a burden that you have collected that you could put down? Try not to carry too much. Rest a little.

Jack of Wands7/17 – a J♣ day:

Keywords:
CHARMING……….SUPERFICIAL
SELF-CONFIDENT…..COCKY
DARING……….FOOLHARDY
ADVENTUROUS……….RESTLESS
PASSIONATE……….HOT-TEMPERED

Like all Jacks, Jack of Clubs is creative, romantic, clever, playful, and a bit of a trickster. He is the most confident, cocky Jack. Because Jacks are about trying things out and experimenting, trying to balance energies, Jack of Clubs can be adventurous, but sometimes reckless. He is courageous, but sometimes foolishy so. He is passionate and strong, but when he overdoes it, it sometimes shows up as anger. If Jack of Clubs energy is showing up for you, go with its bold and confident manner, but try to be aware of not going overboard.

MATERIAL FORCE

This is a card of security, prosperity, abundance, and trust. It literally depicts the riches of the world being handed to us by the universe. The seeds that we plant in the physical world – whether they be ideas, feelings, desires, or plans – are what allows creation to happen, and they create the eventual garden that awaits us in the background.

Card of the Day – 2♦ – Two of Diamonds (Coins)

Two of Coins7/13 – a 2♦ day:

Keywords:
FLEXIBILITY
FUN
JUGGLING
FINDING BALANCE

I love this card because it is all about flexibility. In the image, a man is juggling and balancing two objects. It invites us to find balance, have fun. The more that we are able to bring an approach of flexibility to a situation, the better we will be able to handle it. In the image, he is standing on one foot – also representing finding one’s balance when many things are at play. I also like this card because it reminds us to lighten up and not take things too seriously.

Card of the Day – 3♦ – Three of Diamonds (Coins)

Three of Coins7/12 – a 3♦ day:

Keywords:
TEAMWORK
PLANNING
COMPETENCE

Three of Coins shows a group of people working on a building. I call this ‘the builder’ card. There is the architect, the client, and the worker doing the physical work. The building is incomplete without any of them – the one who draws together the plans, the one who executes the work, or the one who is going to use it. This card also has team effort as a theme – accomplishing something together that would be dramatically difficult or almost impossible to do by one’s self.

3’s also represent creativity, and in this card, doing things as a group. Collaborative efforts are favored when this card is present – especially in the arts or anything having to do with creativity. If you are a writer, this card is great for editing work, or brainstorming with another person. Joint choreography flourishes under this card, as does theater. Think about what you are building, and how the involvement of like-minded others can further the effort.

This is also a card of thinking things through, covering all the details, and planning for the result desired. If you are developing a business plan, this is a great influence for it. 3 of Diamonds can also represent multiple sources of income, so if you are thinking of branching out to include another means of income, this can be a good time to do it.

Card of the Day – 7♦ – Seven of Diamonds (Coins)

Seven of Coins7/8 – a 7♦ day:

Keywords:
ASSESSMENT
REWARD
DIRECTION CHANGE

Seven of Diamonds shows a man resting on a staff and contemplating a garden replete with ripening grapevines and coins. There is a sense of waiting or patience in this card, as if the fruits of the garden are available, but not quite ready to be picked. I often call this card ‘Patience’ or ‘Harvest’. It’s also a card of contemplation, of stepping back and considering how things are currently. There is a sense in the card that the efforts put forth in cultivating the garden are in the process of blooming, and after time for them to ripen has passed, the reward will be ready for harvest. It can also signify stepping back and considering whether we are happy with what our recent efforts have brought us, and whether we want to make any changes.
