The Eight of Wands suggests a way to live a happier life

April 29, 2017

Eight of Wands -- Tarot of the MastersThere are many ways to use Tarot cards beyond the well-known process of doing a traditional reading. Here’s a way to create a happier life today using a bit of advice from the Eight of Wands.

In the 1989 film Dead Poets Society the lead character tells his students, “Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.” This was the inspiration for the following pithy meaning for this card:

We are not meant to trudge through life; we are meant to live life with spontaneity, in joy and wonder, and with a sense of joie de vivre.

So here is a suggestion for something you can do today to bring a bit more happiness into your life:

Think of something you can do today to make your life wonderfully and beautifully your own—even if in only some small way.  Think about that, and then take the first step on that path.
Seize the day, and make your life extraordinary.

Many of these suggestions from the cards about how to live a happier, more fulfilled life were inspired by my pithy Tarot meanings and others by material in my book, The Soul’s Journey. So if you like them, you might also like my books, Pithy Tarot and The Soul’s Journey. Also, for more Tarot messages, LIKE my Tarot Facebook page.
