Today I’m using my Llewellyn Deck, I felt I needed a boost of the Welsh pantheon and I got it! (Plus I’m in a bit of a hurry today and needed a deck I find easier to interpret… Wildwood Tarot, while beautiful, takes a great deal of thought!)
We start today with the Nine of Swords. Someone has been up all night with worry.
The Page of Pentacles is here to tell you to be practical and keep your feet on the ground. Learn new skills, he can also symbolize a child or childlike person. I’m wondering if one of my readers is losing sleep worrying over one of your children?
The Star is symbolized by the Goddess Branwen who symbolizes hope. Branwen’s story is that she is married to the King of Ireland who is abusive to her. She sends a starling with a message for her brother King Bran to come and rescue her. Perhaps you are waiting to be rescued from your current situation, and hope that a knight in shining armor is on his way?
The problem with the Knight of Cups is that he is over romantic, sometimes blowing things out of proportion. If you have a tendency to do this, remember that the Page of Pentacles reminds you to keep your feet on the ground, and be more practical.
The last card I pulled today is Gwydion, the Magician. The magician is a reminder that you have power over the situation. You already have the tools you need and the know how to use them.
Overall, the message is this, worrying yourself sick, and hoping that someone will come and rescue you isn’t the answer. Get grounded, take control, and learn the skills you need to learn. There is someone out there who can teach you or help you do this. Don’t wait for the white knight to come and rescue you. Learning what you need to learn and taking control of your life is empowerment. Your first step is to find that expert to help you!
