What would be prudent at this juncture?


pru·dence 

noun \ˈprü-dən(t)s\
careful good judgement that allows someone to avoid danger or risks
1. the ability to govern and discipline oneself by use of reason
2. sagacity or shrewdness in the management of affairs
3. skill and good judgement in the use of resources
4. caution or circumspection as to risk or danger

Today's 8 of Disks makes perfect sense for me. I've got an important project to do, with a deadline of tomorrow noon, and the results of this project will have a direct bearing on the next year of my life. I certainly do need to be disciplined and focused today, to show skill and good judgement. So I am not belabouring the point today, but will cut this blog entry short. 

The 8 of Disks speaks to the proper management of energy, and the illustration on the card suggests the result, the getting out of our effort what we put into it. There is a symbol of the sun at the of the card and Mercury at the bottom of the card. There is a lot of energy there, all channeled and focused carefully and judiciously toward the goal. Time to get this show on the road, then. 

By the way, I checked the next two cards in the deck to add to this one -- 6 of Wands and 3 of Disks. Very promising indeed. :)

(The title is a reference to a Dana Carvey impersonation of George Bush -- not W. The first one. )

  1. I like how dynamic this card is: with the flowers that look like they're spinning. A reminder that this prudence is a way of steering through our day and our life. Good luck!
