This is the song by the Who from their rock opera "Tommy", not the similarly-titled song by Twisted Sister.
It's about taking a stand, but more than that. It's also about letting go of the fear that you're going to be misunderstood, mocked or taken advantage of.
In an effort to keep peace, you may have overlooked some things, or allowed something you don't agree with or don't believe to pass. And it could be more than just the idea of keeping the peace that led you to this.
For most, confrontation is not pleasant, and we don't like to be challenged. This is true even when we firmly believe that we are right.
Most of us are also concerned about being misunderstood. If you announce that you believe one thing, sometimes others decide that also means you have to believe something else, which may or may not be the case. This is certainly true in politics, where a candidate or elected official announces their support for one program, and opponents immediately link them to other issues.
And I don't know anyone who likes being mocked. But sometimes, we stay silent because we're afraid that what we believe might cause others to make fun of us.
The good news is that you don't have to worry about any of this. This card lets you know that not only is it time for you to stand up for yourself and/or what you believe, but that you can do it without the fear that sometimes comes along with that.
This doesn't give you permission to run rough shod over those who have different beliefs or opinions than you. Kindness and compassion are always important.
Others may seem blind or deaf to you and what you have to say, but you don't need to remain mute about it any more!
This card comes from my Psychic Jukebox deck, a 78-card tarot deck that I created. It is similar to tradition decks, but all the cards are singers, bands and songs. My deck is actually 80 cards, as there are two blank ones - because sometimes, you already know the answer.
You can hear me read from this deck for callers on Psychic Tapestry's Love Show, with Toni DeMaio and Julia Hoffman, Friday's at 5:00pm Pacific on Blog Talk Radio!
