The Wanderer, A well dressed man in a burglar mask walks away from a town, the trees are bare and he has a book chained to him. Intriguing.
The card description is really long, so I will pick and choose from it. “The Wanderer is a symbol of skill, learning, novelty and engagement with the world.He is the fool’s very first teacher in The New Tarot, and his lessons are the most fundamental lessons of this journey: there is a world beyond yourself. There is much within that world to explore. It is possible, out in that world, to realize your dreams. You can acquire skills and knowledge that will make it easier for you to interact with others and to achieve great things.
Seen in a reading, the Wanderer suggests that you develop your talents to the utmost, or that the world may contain exciting opportunities for you to put your skills to the test. Learn something new. Push yourself to accomplish something you think you can’t. Think of something brilliant to do with your own best abilities. Be daring and adventurous, and explore every nook and cranny of life. Use, to the greatest extant you can, the tools of the New Minor Arcana; innovative thinking, social ties, identity and presentation, knowledge and imagination.”
So, relating this to my writing life…. develop your talents, new opportunities… is it a coincidence that I bought a calendar of Canadian writing competitions yesterday?
Push yourself…. write the damned battle scenes?
