“Nurture your mind with great thoughts; to believe in the heroic makes heroes” ~Benjamin Disraeli
Happy August to you, dear reader! This month the Seven of Wands illuminates our quest for courage and conviction! This card (featured above by The Aquarian Tarot) was the impetus for the name of Heroic Tarot! I drew this card while brainstorming about what to call my divination business and once I saw it I knew it contained the perfect formula for success! What does it mean to be heroic? Is it just being brave and noble? It is accomplishing more than others? Consider this quote by American social activist and tennis player Arthur Ashe:
True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.
When the Seven of Wands brings a rush of adrenalin into our lives, we must prove ourselves against our challenges. We must speak our thoughts and stand up for our ideas. Life’s lessons teach us our limitations, but we must build our courage to face our obstacles. Do you honor the fire that runs through you by actively working on your goals? Do you see your natural strengths? Do you frame each day with positivity? Contact me today for your individual Heroic Tarot reading and let us ask these questions together!
