The Eight of Staffs comes with a very clear message: things are happening, and they are happening swiftly! The staffs that shoot through the galaxies carry with them the fiery energy of comets that soar through the sky at breathtaking speeds. When this card appears for you, know that this is the time to act, not to sit and contemplate. All about rapid movement forward, it brings with it the message that any blockages that may have been in your path are now lifted. At the same time, you are being asked to examine the rhythm of your life. The way of the Sufi is all about rhythm. How can you balance such speediness with the slower, more deliberate manner of the mystic?
