Tarot Musings: March 1, 2022
I shuffled my deck today, and shuffled it some more. And then I drew two cards.
The situation in Ukraine has been on my mind a great deal the last week, and I have also been dealing with some other challenges.
The two cards are the Ten of Wands and a Major Arcana Card: Strength.
It certainly seems like these cards are appropriate for this moment.
The Ten of Wands at first represents a huge burden. Bearing a great burden can lead to breakthroughs and growth.
The burden can also be a problem to solve or a decision to make, when one is torn between two alternatives -- should you do this or do that?
Another point about the Ten of Wands and the challenge of carrying all those wands: We strengthen muscles when we stress them, by making them bear weight. Remember that.
The card Strength is also rather obvious: it directly relates to the Ten of Wands and the concept of bearing a weight or burden. In this case it clearly calls for one to find strength, to develop strength, and to use strength to work through those seemingly unbearable challenges.
