Daily Draw: Ukiyoe Tarot ~ Hierophant

I've often thought "I wish I could start over, knowing what I know now". I suppose I believe I could avoid some foolish or harmful mistakes. Yet there are very few of us that don't repeat some of our mistakes thinking circumstances have changed so the results must also.

I'm reminded by this card all the knowledge and intelligence in the world won't help us if we don't learn from our mistakes and refuse to repeat the actions and behaviors that have blown up in our faces. Card readers see this a lot, our number one request for readings involves unhappy relationships; we don't have to fan the deck and pull cards to say "if you continue to do what you've always done, you will always get the same results". Yes, bad things do occasionally happen to good people, but if the same bad thing happens over and over we must learn to look to ourselves to change the outcome, not something or someone outside ourselves.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." ~ George Santayana 1863-1952

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
