Draw March 16 2016 Himinglava Thurisaz Rym Angrboda

The Giants’ Tarot, Raven Kaldera

Today’s Draw: Himinglava/Ten of Cups; Thurisaz; Rym/Ten of Wands; Angrboda/The High Priestess.

Himinglava as the Active Influence lightens the mood somewhat, but does not lessen the intensity of this draw. She tells you to enjoy what is good, and celebrate what is going well, and also reminds you that nothing is forever, so enjoy it while it lasts. Conversely, if you are currently in a difficult circumstance, She reminds you that this, too, shall pass, and things will be good again.

Rym as the Hidden Influence reminds you of all the unfinished work and incomplete tasks you’ve been avoiding, either avoiding doing, or even thinking about. While the work may be tedious, or horrible, or not actually your problem to deal with but has ended up in your lap for some reason, it still must be done, and it is yours to do, regardless of the fairness of the situation or how you feel about it.

Both cards are Tens, the last numbered card in their suit. You are approaching your limits, but as Angrboda reminds you, you have learned new knowledge and skills, and your limits are further out than before, and you can do more and manage more than you previously thought or believed.

Thurisaz brings in the unpredictable energy of chaos. Just what you need when dealing with problems. Actually, a bit of chaos is what you need, because without the change that chaos brings, everything would stagnate. The key to Thurisaz is focusing that energy—whether it’s passion, inspiration, or anger—into constructive action. That may include creative destruction, that is, destroying what is no longer helpful or useful to make room for new ways of being, thinking, believing, and doing. Galina Krasskova describes using Thurisaz as a laser, using the energy in a narrow and focused manner for precise cutting away of what needs to be removed. Whatever you are feeling (and however intensely you are feeling it), you need to control those feelings, rather than letting them control you.

Angrboda appears as a bonus card, having flipped out of the deck while I was shuffling. Her presence reinforces Rym’s message of the necessity of fulfilling one’s obligations, whether self-imposed or externally imposed, as a matter of honor and duty. Angrboda reminds you that you have powers and abilities on many levels, and your current circumstances are presenting you with challenges to learn new ways to work with those talents. You may feel pulled or stretched by the demands on you today, but you can learn much about your abilities, including how far your limits have grown as you have pursued your personal development.
