And from the universal comms team we have Illenium & sound remedy spirals featuring king deco. ( another new one on me)
The beginning of the video looks a little like our first card today interestingly enough.
"Remember when our paradise was green grape vines and leaves" from the lyrics reminds me of our recent period of staying at home and treasuring nature more, and noticing nature more.... will we remember?
So let's see what our cards can illuminate for us today.
First card today is 16 The Tower. ... ah more sudden change I here you cry ! ( more plot twists than a Hollywood B movie in 2020 right ?)
In truth it feels like this story of transformation is speeding up right now.
Each day something new, each day another change, a new instruction, a shift in information. ( don't wear masks, wear masks if you want, masks aren't necessary, masks are mandatory) you get the idea.....
In the chaos of change we can either be consumed by the energy, or we can harness the energy to flow into the new, riding the flow and surfing the wave.
I guess all we can do is to expect the unexpected....
And have faith that all will be ok in the end... I think 2020 has been a lesson in this to be fair.
The 80s song by Toyah comes to mind "It's a mystery "
"Somewhere in the distance,hidden from view.
Suspended in the atmosphere, waiting to come through.
Sometimes it's so far away, sometimes it's very near.
Sound being carried by the wind, just loud enough to hear.
Feel its power within me, bells ringing in my head.
So often I have heard its cry, but forgotten what it said.
It's a mystery, it's a mystery, I'm still searching for a clue.
It's a mystery to me
shot in the dark
The big question mark in history
Is it a mystery to you?"
"It can lift you to the heavens
Put your troubles in the past"
Well I think 2020 will certainly be that big question mark in history, maybe it is to lift us into a new era and leave behind our troubles? Only time and distance will tell.
Our second card today is 6 The Lovers... funny as I type this I can hear the blind date music playing, courtesy of the universal comms team 😆... and Cilla saying " Surprise, surprise" ... I know two different shows... I don't make the rules of how this stuff comes to me .
This kind of suggests on the back of the previous card that we don't know what we don't know yet, we are being presented with choices to make at short notice( surprise, surprise) without all of the information, ( blind date).
I guess we're either going all in.... or not.... and with all that orange in the card, it suggests that we must follow our gut instinct to make that choice.
Our gut instinct is the physical reaction we have to the world around and inside of us.
When we experience an overwhelming “gut feeling,” our body is carrying out a primal response to subconscious information.
The ultimate purpose of our gut instinct is to protect us. As our gut instinct is the most ancient and primal “sixth sense” we have, it is the one we can rely upon the most.
Our final card today is the 4 of swords (swords representative of the air element and of thought,mind and intellect )
And so to rest .... a time to curl up in our nest , nurtured and safe, to rest and heal...
Chiron, the wounded healer , has entered a retrograde cycle in Aries right now, it means we are able to go within to tend our own wounds and reflect on how we have used them as a source of power and healing.
The poet Rumi says that "The wound is where the light enters you."
Along with finding the light from our wounds, this is also a time to think about the things that still pain us and how we may be able to create some space for ourselves, in order that we may heal and transform them into growth, power and light.
“The pain of our experience becomes our greatest teacher and the lesson we learn is who we truly are beyond our wounds.“
- Linda Star Wolf and Ruby Falconer.
Under this energy, we can allow our wounds to help us take action for a brighter future.
