When You Grow Up

Dreamkeepers Tarot ~ 6 of Swords

Odd...peacock boat, human prow, nude body reclining, sword points up. Stormy sky, red curtains, floating above a forested lake. Odd.

A dreamlike image where nothing makes sense, like asking a child what they want to be when they grow up. Eh? How could they know. But we plunge right in and do something, generally without much more thought than we gave it at 8. Only 27% of college graduates work in the field they majored in.

Rob knew he wanted to be in trucking and worked in the industry his whole life. I worked in 16 different industries, at home in none. Not a clue..although I know now, too late what I should have done. I can attest, 6 of Swords is an odd way to live a life.

  1. I can see why the name of the tarot this card came from is 'Dreamkeepers.' :)
    I think college students get pressured to choose a major before they even understand what real life in that field is about. They'd do better to offer in service classes (like student teaching) to give them a taste.

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
