Four of Spears – A Music and Tarot Discussion

MUSIC AND TAROT BACKGROUND

One of the best ways to learn something is through making a personal connection to it. Being that Tarot speaks to so many facets of life, lyrics lend themselves well to the cards. Music has power and we make connections to it on a regular basis. In a way, it’s magic because it can transport us back to moment frozen in time as the music and lyrics pluck memories from our minds.

FOUR OF SPEARS

Four of Spears is a card of celebrations. It represents the honoring of life events and achievements when we gather the clan(s) together to recognize these moments. Some common celebrations it refers to are receptions at a weddings or the ceremonies following graduations. It is the moments when you have achieved something but there is still so much ahead of you. We take this moment to honor what we have achieved but are still looking forward to bigger and better things.

MY SONG CHOICE

Celebration – Kool and The Gang

Ok. I know it’s kind of an oldie but, honestly, when I pulled this card, Celebration was the first song that came to mind. The whole song is about celebrating the good times. The lyrics don’t tell a story like some of the other songs I’ve mentioned have, but it really captures the spirit of a celebration. Coming together and having a good time which is really what the Four of Spears is all about. It’s also kind of a live-in-the-moment song which is super upbeat! What song would you choose?

On a side note: Doesn’t my musical representation today just fit perfectly?

There’s a party goin’ on right here
A dedication to last throughout the years
So bring your good times and your laughter too
We gonna celebrate and party with you
