Daily Draw: New Vision Tarot ~ 3 of Wands
I should thumbtack this card to my forehead to remind myself about moderation. This card identifies the person that can go overboard. There are a lot of good qualities that go along with that; leadership, commitment, conscientiousness, but with that you can also get zealot, workaholic, perfectionist... if a sense of balance can be brought into this personality you can have a real winner.
As shown on this card the figure has taken the job of point-man for the wagon train. He has to be a out of the box thinker and a fixer in that position, a true leader. He is the first to take unfriendly fire, the first across the river, the first to realize this path is wrong. The personal rewards are great, but the public rewards are minimal. People only notice the point-man when things go wrong, they seldom acknowledge when things go smooth.
"Better to be a strong man with a weak point, than a weak man without a strong point. A diamond with a flaw is more valuable than a brick without a flaw." ~ William J.H. Boetcker 1873-1962
The deck this week is Tarot of the New Vision by Lo Scarabeo. An interesting concept based on what a standard deck would look like if viewed in the reverse.
