11/16/11: Keep on Riding | Knight of Wands, Three of Swords Reversed


“In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm… in the real world all rests on perseverance.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Today’s Tarot is the Knight of Wands (Air in Fire) and the reversed Three of Swords (Saturn in Libra). Life has pain. That’s part of the gig—we sometimes lose something dear to us. Unavoidable part of the human experience, you know? But you can lessen the sting by continuing to move forward.

So, if you lose an opportunity, if a relationship disintegrates, if an option you dearly wanted is moved out of your reach? Well…okay. This happens sometimes. But you’re not a goner yet! Maybe you’ll end up with a reasonable facsimile of what you wanted, or maybe not. But if you keep on going, with fire, determination and passion, you’ll definitely end up with something!

And isn’t that “something” better than the cold comfort you get crying over the cake you’re shoveling in your mouth, decrying the world as unkind? (Not that I would know anything about emotional eating. Har!) If you’ve got some sad, acknowledge your losses. Feel it, cry your tears and tidy the mess. But don’t camp out in the middle for the rest of your life. Do something else, damn it! It’s not the losses that makes a loser—it’s the giving up.

How do you react to suffering a loss?

  1. overall, I keep on peddling. There are some losses, however, I do not even want to fathom. If that bridge comes, I’ll cross it then. But, like I said, overall I’m a survivor.

  2. I’m Cancer with Pisces moon there are some things I just NEVER think is lost. OMG Dixie – are you trying to tell me something?!?

    I guess it depends on what’s lost is how it’s handled. If I choose the loss then it’s done for the best interest of all involved; a sick pet or a so-called friend is done with higher thinking. However, if it’s something I didn’t want to loose then chocolate and vodka is involved, though not at the same time-yuck, but you keep on going.

    I do have one situation I think of often and I just don’t think it’s LOST yet – I don’t know why because it’s not really mine but I still have hope or stupid blind faith that it’s NOT lost. This does give me something to think about my sweet pink haired friend.

    I think I’ll go out and buy a St. Jude medallion, he’s the parton Saint of Lost Causes ya know!
