Stay the course


Joie de Vivre Tarot, US Games 2011
What a hopeful card for a Monday morning! The work environment will still be plagued by network problems today, if what we were told on Friday is anything to go by, so I'm not sure why she's so bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this morning. The LWB of the Joie de Vivre Tarot (Paula Cassidy, US Games 2011) calls this figure 'Moxie'. All the characters in this deck are given nicknames that reflect the card meaning in some way. I like that, it's kinda cute. This card, the LWB says, that a 'perfect balance of willpower and action will carry you forward with spiritual and intellectual harmony' and to 'remain confident with your ideas, and stay focused on your intentions.'

Okay, then. I will take this as encourage to stay the path of the project I am now working on. Today is the eighth day in a row to contribute to it, and my intention is to work on it daily until July. The way to do that, as this card seems to be reminding me, is to do one day at time. It's an old saying but it's remembered for a reason -- it's true!

So today's motto is:

Stay the course, light a star,
Change the world where'er you are.
