Stepping into the light.
And from the universal comms team Wamdue Project and "King of my castle"
"Must be the reason why I'm king of my castle
Must be the reason why I'm freeing my trapped soul
Must be the reason why I'm king of my castle
Must be reason why I'm making examples to you"
The lyrics suggest to me that we are the keeper of our own "Castle" or ourselves in other words and that our soul cannot be trapped by another. The "making examples" line makes me think about disclosure, uncovering truths and discovery.
Let's see how this theme plays out in our cards today...
First card out today is the 7 of swords... hmm that crow is cawing loudly, trying to bring our attention to the figure skulking around in the moonlit sky, he appears to be up to no good. There appears to be trickery and deception afoot.... but to what ends? What is the intent, is all as it seems?
Crows symbolise transformation and change. They are watchful creatures that have a sharp and powerful foresight.
He sees the figure has taken feathers from the nest and he is now cawing like a siren in the night. The moon is illuminating the scene, shedding light on the truth. The picture would have us believe one interpretation of what is taking place.... but is it the truth I wonder?
The light of the full moon is uncovering truths, that before were hidden perhaps?
The moon represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.
It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.
The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.
During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun, fully illuminated by the light of the Sun. Hence the Moon & Sun are on opposite sides of the zodiac during a Full Moon which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy, but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.
Our second card today is the king of pentacles.
Ahh look at the warmth exuded by this king. He is abundant in the true sense of the word. He has lived life and his experience shines through, he has reached a place of being totally comfortable in his own skin. Look at the library, symbolic of wisdom, intelligence, knowledge, education and new doors of opportunity.
Our king wears a comfy green jumper.Green, the colour of life, renewal, nature, and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, fertility, and the environment. It is also the colour of the heart chakra.
Beside him sits a wolf.The power of the wolf brings forth instinct, intelligence, appetite for freedom, and awareness of the importance of social connections.
This animal can also symbolise fear of being threatened and lack of trust. When the wolf shows up in our life, we are asked pay close attention to what our intuition is telling us.
Our final card today is the 6 of wands.
Our subject is centre stage and in the spotlight. She holds her arms heavenward and beside her we see a victory wreath, at first I thought it to be made of laurel leaves as is the tradition, but then I was drawn to white berries and the word "Mistletoe" came to mind.
Mistletoe flower essence encourages peace within even during times of transition; it is recommended when we are undergoing big changes in our lives, as it increases resiliency to stress and encourages a calm and steady mind on our journey through life.
Well she's stepped out and stepped up, she is ready to inspire those around her, to become a leader and influencer, whilst her heart may be in her mouth as she takes her place in the spotlight she is embracing the calling to share her truth and be seen and heard.
It feels like it has been some journey to get to this point, yet now is the moment, success at last.
It feels as though we are at a time of asking deep questions, tapping into our innate wisdom and intuition and standing up for our truth, we are being seen and heard.
We are leading our own castle so to speak and perhaps freeing our soul from the fears and worries of the past months.
It's been one heck of a journey, yet success appears to be on the horizon.
