Card of the Day - August 22, 2011

7 of Swords
The Fairy Tale Tarot by Lisa Hunt

Today's card is again from The Fairy Tale Tarot and I plan to use this deck for this purpose for quite a while now. I would love to share with you the wonderful images and stories it portrays.

The 7 of Swords is depicted in this deck by the fairy tale I'm sure most of you have heard of : The Three Billy Goats Gruff''. The story is about three goats called Billy Goats Gruff. They wanted to climb up a grassy knoll so they could fatten themselves up and eat the plants there. But they had to cross an old bridge where there lived a mean, ugly troll. The three goats trick the mean troll with their wit and smart ways. In the end, they successfully reach the other side and live there for the rest of their lives.

The goat stands for cunning and steadfastness. There are risks to be undertaken if we need success. This is not the time to let your guard down. You need to be alert and witty to get things done. You need to utilize your acute problem-solving skills as you encounter challenges. This card suggests that you need to stay one step ahead of competition. Try to be aware of deceitful behavior and adjust your strategy accordingly.
