Breakdown, Breakthrough, Breakout

Daily Draw: Grail Tarot, Templar Vision ~ 8 of Lances

Melchizedek, who represents the Hierophant in this deck, lays the healing properties of the lance tip on the Seekers wound. The wound that has kept him weak and wandering aimlessly in the forest.

I'm reminded by this card of sudden insight, permissions received, money arrived, legalities conquered...those times when abruptly we are able to move on. Whatever has been holding us back is removed and a weight is lifted from us. What a great feeling.

"Sometimes a breakdown can be the beginning of a kind of breakthrough, a way of living in advance through a trauma that prepares you for a future of radical transformation." ~ Cherrie Moraga 1952-

John Matthews The Grail Tarot, a Templar Vision has been an amazing deck to work with the past two weeks. The well written book and totally different spin on the traditional images opens new doors to personal insight. The standard image of 8 of Wands is 8 wands or staves flying through the air. Speed or hurry, but for or to or from what? The breakthrough on a meaning for the card today was indeed, what the card is all about.
