Today's symbol is:
The spike, the sting, the quill, the thorn
that protects the cactus, the angry wasp;
sleeping beauty in her sea of briar;
and swarming ants with stings of fire.
The spire, the prick, the lance, the horn...
the steady needle for the lost
the finger pointing toward the sky
a stone church reaching with its spire
The basic principle of the imagination: "ask and you shall receive."
At some point in the day, you will have a mental image related to thorns, needles...etc.
Allow yourself to play with that image. It might even give you insight into your current life situation.
Come back and report. Have fun!
