Daily Draw: 8 of Wands (rev), Mjol

Today’s draw, the reversed 8 of Wands, the rune Ear and The Sun (face down) and the upside-down Stork, is a reminder of the necessity of going into darkness every once in awhile. It’s necessary as a process of the spiritual and psychological life as much as it is a necessary part of physical life. We need to die in order to live. We need to let go of some things so that other things can be born. So today, our mission is to let ourselves see what needs to die. Look around. Take the time to slowly and carefully review your circumstances and see what can go. And before grieving for it too deeply, remember that new things are waiting to be born but cannot be without the death of what needs to die. By clinging to these old things, we are preventing our own future from being born. So stop it, take a deep breath, and let go.

  1. This card and your interpretation of it is certainly relevant to me today…thanks for this!

    Also, thank you for your comment on Jonathan Korman’s blog–I found “PantyCon”‘s “apology” to be a little too close to ‘splaining for my own tastes, as well as quite dishonest on several matters.
