Saturday’s are great, they’re often accompanied by the late rising from one’s wonderfully warm bed. However, the card for today suggests that we do so with some caution and trepidation, for the key word today is: transition.
As you can see from the image, we see a hooded figure on a boat, the wind in its sails, the sun setting, the moon climbing high but not totally in view. There are calm waters on one side with more turbulent waters on the other. It’s a card of transition, of balance, of safe navigations and focus. Arrows in this deck are Swords in others, so it’s more to do with mental balance, keeping your cool, your temper and yourself in balance.
I find navigating the middle water somewhat interesting and hard. Usually this card comes up when I am over tired. It is then I stop thinking straight and swerve the boat to one side over the other. Sometimes things calm down too much, other times it’s like fighting a war with two little boys.
So the key word today is: transition. Going from one place to the next, trying to find the calmest but less boring path going. It’s also maybe a case of finding the lesser walked path, one that is interesting but still slightly calmer than maybe taking the long way around.
So, be careful what you do today, but be prepared for an adventure, for it is an adventure that beckons today, is it not? I’m here if you need me.
