Isabella picked the 7 of Wands, which features a girl running along a path in a wood at night. She seems anxious and has her hands up as if in defense. There’s almost a feeling that she’s lost in a forest, except that she’s moving onward on a clear, bright path that keeps her from truly losing her way. The traditional meaning relates to having to defend your position, stand firm in your ideas, and know that, even though at times there may be a lot of obstacles in the path ahead, with effort and determination comes success.

So I told Isa that one of her teachers may ask her an unexpected question that would put her on the spot, but that she’d probably find herself able to answer the question when all was said and done. She said, “Good to know!” and went to bed.
Yesterday afternoon when she got home from school she was so excited to tell me that in science class her instructor had suddenly picked on her randomly to explain the benefits of “green” energy to the rest of the class. She was nervous and surprised, but gathered her thoughts and gave the best answer she could. When she finished, her teacher said, “That was a great reply – almost textbook!” So she was relieved and also very pleased that she was able to perform well under pressure. Above all, she was excited that her card draw from the evening before had been so relevant to her day. It made me smile, too ☺
