The Eight of Wands -- HARMONY -- in The Voyager Tarot

For comparison, here's The Eight of Wands in the Rider/Waite/Smith deck:

I just did a meditation on The Eight of Wands in The Voyager Tarot tonight as a part of a 14 day Tarot ritual I'm in the middle of (see "Resource" below). Several new slants on The Eight of Wands in general occurred to me in this process:

Watch a tendency to harsh judgments of yourself or others. They may have the ring of "objective" truth, but they may really be projections from an overly strict aspect of the Super-Ego.

Don't stew in your envy of their harmony. Figure out how to appropriately join in, or leave it be ... for your sake as well as theirs.

You have gathered more than enough information. It's time to take action.

Different aspects of yourself seem to be working better together now than in some time. It might be a good time to take on some long put off project or pursue an endeavor you have always wanted to try.

Before there can even be a hope of harmony, there has to be deep listening. To paraphrase something I read a while ago: the purest gift one has to offer another is one's full attention.

‘til next time, keep offering the gift of attention, and enjoying The Tarot,
