Daily Tarot for August 29, 2013

fourwands

Today our card is the Four of Wands. In the four of wands we see the completion of the first part of a new project. It’s the first step achieved towards heading towards our goal.

In the mythic Tarot we see Jason surrounded by his Argonauts. The newly completed Argo awaits in calm seas behind. It’s a time to celebrate the achievement of the first fruits of your labor. Know, however that this is only the first step towards a much higher goal.

It’s time to take satisfaction in a job well done. If you have been working doggedly at some project it’s now time to take a well-deserved break before moving on to the next steps. Enjoy the calm waters while you can, because there is much work to be done ahead!

This is a great card to pull right before the Labor Day weekend!  The kids may be back at school now but school year doesn’t really begin in earnest until after Labor Day! For many of us, this weekend is truly the last few days of summer holiday so let’s enjoy them while we can!

  1. It is indeed a Four of Wands kind of day. Heading to the Napa valley tomorrow; getting ready for my own journey (not going by boat).

    I’m noticing a pattern on the artwork: the artists are great on people, scenes, emotions, and symbolism, but really bad when it comes to historical arms, armor, ships, etc. The sails on the Argo are a thousand years or so too early. Most Greek ships had a single mast and a single bank of oars, although there were biremes. Sails were never “stacked.”


    Here’s typical Greek armor, although there were variations. The drawing looks kind of like an apron. Helmet is awful.

    The bronze armor of the Greek hoplite is what allowed them to dominate the warfare of their period. Well, that and training.

      They didn’t do their research very well, did they? Actually, there is a new and updated version of this deck that I haven’t seen I wonder if it’s more accurate.

  2. I’m guessing it’s not high on their list of things to correct. Most people who aren’t aficionados don’t think it’s important.
