The lightening strike.
And from the universal comms team a song I haven't heard before of the same title, from Snow Patrol.
The lyrics make me think of the risk of loosing sight of the lessons we have learned during the past few months. Of taking things foregranted once more perhaps, of not taking this moment to recognise how far we've come.
Let's see what our cards suggest.
First card today is 16 The Tower, often associated with sudden or unexpected change, I can identify with this, as us therapists were told that we can return to seeing clients , albeit with some restrictions from Monday.... now that was unexpected 😳
I will be a little while longer before I am able to provided face to face appointments in truth, but this is the type of thing that is sprung on us with this energy.
What I'm specifically drawn to today is the butterflies.
Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. The Christian religion sees the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope and life.
An orange butterfly represents passion, but it can also represent agressiveness.The appearance of an orange butterfly reminds us to stay positive.
It also looks like fireflies to me in the card , as I look at it today.As a creature of light, it should come as no surprise that the firefly is a symbol of illumination.
Fireflies produce a “blue light”, symbolic to wisdom, inspiration and healing, a gift from the universe, an inner glow of heavenly spirit energy.
Maybe something is being illuminated today ? Maybe another reminder to recognise the massive changes we have been through, changes that were thrust upon us without real preparation or warning.
Our second card is the 7 of swords ( swords representative of the air element and of thought, mind and intellect )
Again we have illumination, this time it is the light of the moon, which in our card is full.
The Moon represents powerful feminine energy. It signifies wisdom, intuition, birth, death, reincarnation, and a spiritual connection. The cyclical changes of the moon represents the rhythm of life within us.
The moon also represents our deepest personal needs. At the full moon the Sun illuminates the entire moon. This particular moon cycle signifies release and sealing of intention.
Perhaps symbolic of the letting go of the old ways of being in the world and setting our intention as we step back into the world, changed.
And yet in our card the intention that is depicted, doesn't appear a positive one, I wonder are we being misled in someway, or are we misleading ourselves that all is back to what it once was ?
Only time will tell, if we come from a place of love and an intent of a pure heart then we can be safe in the knowledge we have taken 'right action' with the information and resources available to us.
It feels like perhaps someone is being 'called out' in terms of the true intentions behind their actions.
I wonder if it is raising the questions of the balance of risk between health and economy that we find the nation, well in fact the World inbetween right now ?
Our final card today is the 9 of pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation)
Ahhh.... haven't we come a long way in these past months?
It's time to recognise our successes, not just hurry on, rushing by the moment. It's a precious time to stop and appreciate the journey and just how much has been achieved.
Let's not miss this moment to celebrate our progress. As we have recently experienced, it can change without warning, so every small move forwards is to be savoured.
