Drawing a single tarot card a day is an interesting exercise; drawing a single tarot card on my birthday feels like it’s supposed to Mean Something. We are setting intentions for the whole year here! I mean, we don’t have to be, this is my game and I make the rules. (But it does feel that way–it’s not breakfast, it’s Birthday Breakfast! Which seems like a lot to ask of a breakfast.)
Today’s card is The Moon, continuing my statistically unlikely streak of major arcana cards. The guidebook says it’s about vivid dreams and vivid fears, the dark unknowns that can tip to either fear or discovery. I think it might be a good card for the year ahead–there’s a lot that we’re shaking up in the next year, big changes ahead, and I could do worse than to embrace the idea of the unknown as a place of possibility.
Anyway, that’s it for today, we’ve got a cake to frost.
