Do you pull a tarot card every day or so? Every once in a while, we pull one that we just have to laugh about because of the synchronicity.
It’s fun to pull a card in the morning and then review it at the end of the day. Sometimes the connections between the card and the day’s events are especially strong. I usually jot dot a quick note on my desk calendar about my first impression of the card ~ just a word or two, nothing long-winded. I’ve been pulling a lot of Wands recently. Yesterday, it was the Ace of Wands, and my note was “Fire!! Energy.”
I did have a lot of energy yesterday. I was out and about running short trips through the neighborhood and taking care of errands (Aries on my 3rd house), so that was a simple way to see how the card reflected my day’s activities.
Just as I thought I was settled in for the evening, I noticed huge amounts of smoke billowing from a house just a few doors down from me. Where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire, right?! Fire?! OMG!
My husband and I jump in the truck to run over and see if the neighbor’s house is on fire, cell phone in hand to make a 911 call. Turns out it was a lot of smoke billowing from their barbecue grill. (Take it easy on the lighter fluid, neighbors!) We sort of laugh it off, but hope our neighbors would jump into action for us.
As we walk in the door, we hear our security alarm going off ~ wuuhp, wuuhp, wuuhp, wuuhp, wuuhp, wuuhp. We’ve only been gone for 4 or 5 minutes! What’s going on? Turns out that my mother-in-law had unknowingly set off her medic alert. “Do you hear that alarm?” I ask. Uh-huh, she nods, standing at the table eating potato chips. I rush to push in the code.
Fifteen minutes later, I see headlights in my driveway. Paramedics are on the scene, lights swirling. Thank goodness, their siren wasn’t blaring. We explained what happened, had a nice chat and some laughs, and they went on their way. All’s well that ends well, I suppose.
So what’s my card of the day today? The Ace of Wands again! Hi-yi-yi-yi!
