Carry a Torch

Ace of Wands Short Sip Tarot: carry a torch for yourself, those you love, and the things you love to do.

I do love a good coincidence.

Thank you for reading and listening to TaoCraft Tarot. I’m glad you are here.

I drew the Ace of Wands for today’s Short Sip, found this excellent Nelson Mandela quote, then the same card and vibe turned up in a private reading for a client. The Ace of Wands intends to be heard today!

I am reminded of Joseph Campbell, American author and expert in comparative mythology and comparative religion. I read his book The Power of Myth 1990 – ish around the time I started reading Jamie Carson & David Sams, Ted Andrews, Scott Campbell, and you know…Tarot. The Ace of Wands today is akin to Campbell’s most famous quote about “follow your bliss.”

It also resonates with wise words from Nelson Mandela, “There is no passion in playing small – in settling for a life smaller than the one you are capable of living.” The Ace of Wands also reminds me of quotes from Steve Jobs that have been floating around social media lately “You’ve got to find what you love… the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

Or, put more succinctly, “…we believe that people with passion can change the world for the better.”

If the Ace of Wands resonates with you today, that is your cue to let your light shine. Carry a torch…for yourself, for the people you love, and for the things you love to do.
