Today’s Card is the Three of Bows from the Wildwood Tarot. The Wanderer is welcomed by a hooded archer. This is a place to reassess where we’ve come from and where we are going. Which path shall we chose? Which path is the right path? From the archer we learn that some choices can’t be rationalized. He has learned to control his bow and arrows by many hours of practicing but in the end, when he is confronted with his aim, he has to focus and let go of his arrow, trusting it will reach its goal. He knows from experience he will be successful; most of the time.
Now we have to be on our way again while trusting and listening to our inner voice which will tell us were to go. I wonder where we are heading?
And then I pulled the Hooded man. Is it the same archer but much older and wiser? How long have we traveled towards this little door in the ancient Oak tree? Are we invited in to repose and regain our strength so we can receive the wisdom from The Hooded man and his little wren?
So many questions today and so little answers. I like that. Time will provide the right answers and will show us the right direction, if we are only patient enough to wait and quiet enough to listen.
For me both these cards are telling me to slow down and stop hurrying towards whatever is so important that it can't wait. Today is for quieting my mind and about taking stock. If I know where I am coming from it will be much easier to find out where I want to go next.
