Tarot Draw: 8 of Wands

May 11, 2010

Eight of Wands (R) – You tend to get carried away with new ideas. Try not to loose sight of your perspective or your self-confidence now. Take any sudden infatuations or new ideas in stride and control your emotions. Your own apprehension can create insecure feelings and cause you to procrastinate. Act swiftly and communicate directly. Jealousy arises from uncertainty and confusion – in both your own feelings and the feelings of others. Quarreling solves nothing and any force or pressure could ruin all your plans. When things are not “working for you” – take the time to reevaluate your situation. Know and trust that a slight adjustment can and will change everything.

Here are the problems of extremes – a major temptation is to move too fast. To try is like letting a rubberband be drawn tighter as the lead end move on – eventually the tail end must be let loose and will spring forward to join the lead end in one great snap to make up for the lost time. The backlash can hurt.

Questions to Answer: What are you rushing into? A relationship? A new direction for growth? A belief or philosophy? What are you being “carried away” by or overwhelmed with? What do you feel the urge to move on quickly? What do you need to tell others about?

Getting carried away with new ideas? Story of my life. I was just lamenting recently with a good friend that I have all these things I always want to do. Sometimes I get partway through something before I just don’t finish — I often feel like things just don’t hold my attention, or that I for some reason am simply no longer interested in them. Part of that may be Attention Deficit, which I have & regularly do not take medications for, but I hesitate to say that that’s the only reason. I do need to learn to properly invest myself in things I do.
