Tarot Card of the Day: Peter Pan
A couple weeks ago I was on a mini road trip with my boyfriend when the song “Lost Boy” came on the radio. I was kind of down at the time, and the fantastical nature of the song just lifeted my spirits. Then, my boyfriend told me Peter Pan was actually his favorite fairy tale growing up because Pan is a metaphor for the grim reaper, helping the lost boys across to the other side. Needless to say, that kind of brought my attitude towards the song down a notch, but thinking about it, it makes a lot of sense.
When I first flipped this card, I thought it was going to be the equivalent of the death card in traditional tarot, but it’s actually the chariot. This card depicts Peter Pan on a ship, helping to lead the kids to Neverland with the help of Tinkerbell’s magic. Together they represent the soul, steering the children, humanity, towards where they need to go. In a way, the death theme is still involved, becuase in order to move forward, the children must leave something behind.
If this card was upright, it would suggest an easier time moving forward. Almost like magic was following you around, making sure everything just falls into place. However, it’s reversed. This suggests that try as you might, you just can’t seem to progress like you want.
There’s a block between you and your magic.
This card is calling for us to stop and tap into our soul and it’s magic. The solution lies within, but it’s going to require us going within to discover it. Don’t get discouraged if you aren’t moving as quickly as you’d like. It’s all a matter of time.
