Your Card for Today: 8 of Wands

Wands 08Here is a strong fiery card for today. I love the red colouring in the cards from this suit of Wands; they display the vibrancy, passion and warmth of the element.

For today, we have the 8 of Wands from the Adrian Tarot. Even though the minor cards (except courts) are not scenic, the artist has arranged the pips creatively. In this particular card, we get a sense of movement, since the central wands strive further forward than those on either side of them. Interestingly, the line drawing which lays over the image bursts outwards towards the top of the card, suggesting speed.

When the 8 of Wands arrives in a reading, we find our self amongst a flurry of excitement. This card propels us from one place to another … quickly. Within work, you might find yourself mad busy. Within your social-life, your routine might step up a level. Are you awaiting the arrival of something? Chances are that it will turn up today, if this card has anything to do with it.

Have you suddenly found yourself in the fast lane? How do you feel about that? Do you cope well when the world feels as though it is beginning to spin out of control or are situations and those around you pushing you too hard? Today is a day of energy and excitement. If you have been waiting for that extra push towards a goal or for something to kick-start, then know that it is here. Hold on to your hat!
