Whew, what a card! This beautiful image is from the deck of Verena Heinrich’s tarot. It reminds vividly of the fantasy of Marion Zimmer-Bradley, ‘The Mists of Avalon’, ‘The Forest House’ and so on.
A young girl is riding through a foggy forest at night, riding a carriage drawn by two horses. In traditional tarot, one animal should be white and the other, black, representing the forces pulling you in opposite directions (the light path; the dark path). But in this version they are both fairly dark in colour.
The environment, too, is quite hostile. Can she see where she is going? Is she lost?
- Life path
- balance of forces
- stay in control
Keep calm, keep driving through what seems to be a very dark patch of your life. The path may not be clear; you may not be quite certain where you are going, but right now, motion is key. You need to stay moving.
- Do I have a clear goal?
- Do I know what actions I must take?
- Am I moving ahead? Am I doing the steps I set myself?
- Is it working? Am I getting closer to my goal?
Have you written your goal down?
Do you have an action list (on paper)?
Have you set yourself a schedule by when to have done each step?
Revise: Do your action steps need to be improved?
Take a piece of paper, or better, your year planner (yes, the one we never use properly) and write on it:
- Your large goal with a date
- things that need to happen for it to come about
- dates by when you want to do each step
Put this plan next to your computer.
Stick a copy on or next to your mirror so you can see it every morning.
Take the first (or, next) step right now.
