Wild is the wind.
And from the universal comms team, David Bowie and of course the song of the same title "Wild is the wind", I was trying to remember if the team had given this song before, well no matter it's here again if so. The haunting sound of my idol Bowie.
The lyrics that stand out for me today are:
"For my love is like the wind and wild is the wind,
Wild is the wind.
Let the wind blow through your heart, for wild is the wind,
Wild is the wind.
Don't you know you're
The phrase "Blow away the cobwebs" comes to mind, this of course meaning, to banish a state of lethargy or to refresh oneself. Blowing the cobwebs away brings an energetic and lively feeling, putting a spring in our step and making us feel alive.
Lets see how this is mirrored in our cards for today.
First card out today is the 8 of pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation)
Many hours of work and study have gone into this young woman's progress. It is a labour of love, she is truly on purpose, she is moving ever closer to fulfilling a soul-full life.
We can see in the card, she is taking a moment of reflection as she gazes into the candle flame of a green candle, related to the earth element, growth, personal goals and healing.
There is a feeling of forward movement in the colours and design of the card, all towards that radiant light ahead.
We see the depiction of many moons above her, this has been some time in the making. All of the hard work is paying off.
Her left ankle is crossed over her right. She is still emotionally holding back, almost waiting with baited breath for the outcome of her heartfelt efforts thus far.
Our second card today is the 3 of swords ( swords representative of the air element and of thought, mind and intellect)
It looks at first glance, a deeply emotional card and yet it is from the air element, so very much ruling thoughts. How we are thinking about what is lost causes more pain than the reality of what is.
This can also be a card of new inspiration. What was before, has maybe changed,is not as was planned. Maybe all of the efforts of the past may feel pointless and yet, if we just take a different look at the image, we could say that the heart is suspending the girl, whilst it may have been a painful journey, her heart sustains her and uplifts her.
If she can get out of her head and those negative thought patterns, she could potentially feel her way into a new way of being.
The phrase "cutting ties" comes to mind. As we move through our lives, growing, learning, evolving, we must let go of that which no longer serves us. When we let go, we create space. This space is that of potential, of possibility.
We can think of this like a period of transition. Each day we are evolving. Learning and growing beyond what we once were. Holding on to what was, would prevent us from moving forward.
If we were to continue accumulating all of the old experiences, from every past thought, action and experience, we would be heavily weighted down by the burden of it all.
Cutting ties ( or cutting energetic chords) assists us with this transition, without the burden of carrying the weight of the past. It frees us to move forward with lightness and a sense of openness.
Our final card today is the knight of swords. Having done the hard work, the growth, the healing, followed by cutting the ties of the past we are ready to really go for it. This air element card embodying the wildness of the wind, aiding his speed in moving forward.
I hear the phrase " Wind at his back" meaning forward momentum and a boost in our prospects for success due to favorable events or circumstances.
It feels like a massive shift change is occurring in our storytelling today.
We are being propelled forwards; at speed, leaving behind what was and embracing what is now coming.
