And a wonderful track from Jack Johnson accompanies today's cards. Funny just watching the video, it even looks like the hanged man in our spread.
The lyrics "This world keeps spinning and with each new day
I can feel a change in everything"
Along with "I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I'll find the things they say just can't be found,
I'll share this love I find with everyone.
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
I don't want this feeling to go away"jump out at me.
They seem apt to what is unfolding in our current situation. What we are now valuing and what we don't want to loose as we move into a new world.
Funnily enough, in total synchronicity my world is spinning... with vertigo symptoms... blimey, these cards are playing out a bit too literally for me today !
So let's see what they have to say. First one out today is the Knight of Swords (swords representative of the air element and of thought and intellect)
Wow this knight is quick out of the blocks!
I'm drawn to the soles of his trainers, which are covered with what appears to be Binary code.
Binary code is omnipresent in computer technology, and some people may still remember it from their maths lessons.
This code represents complex things with only two states.
Maybe this knight is processing complex data ( complex thoughts) The omnipresent aspect, makes me think of a higher energy and plan at play ( think the film the matrix).
There's a real feeling of rushing ahead, trying to keep focus. As though time is running out , there's pressure to charge ahead.
Ahead we see a motorcycle. The motorcycle represents speed, or the need for speed, taking fast actions, efforts, success, achievements and competition.
There's grey clouds over head and a large black raven is flying ahead.
Grey clouds represent challenging times or difficulties that we may be going through in our life.
Since a cloud exists up in the sky and far above reach, it represents the higher self. A cloud is a symbol of our conscience.
The raven symbolises our intelligence and our ability to learn quickly.
We use what we learn to figure out solutions to our problems. The raven totem signifies mystery, divination and the attraction to the magical or mystical ways to solve the complexity of life.
It would appear that we are being asked to take action in alignment with both our higher self's advice and our own conscience when it comes to how and when we step out into the world 🌎.
Our second card today is 12 The hanged man.
Everything has been turned on its head it seems. We have been made to pause, to surrender to the stillness. In this new perspective of the World we are gaining enlightenment and illumination.
The Hanged Man, as I've mentioned before couples with The Empress ( The mother) The Hanged Man appears to be attached to the mother; just like the unborn child to the umbilical chord. As the unborn moves downward in readiness for the birthing process, there is first a pause.
The woman in the card wears a grey vest and lime trousers.
Grey may indicate many incarnations, therefore it signifies that the soul about to be birthed is an old soul.
Lime green symbolises possibilities, perception and anticipation.
We see many runic symbols spinning around below. They could be translated as through this difficult or thorny time, mankind is experiencing a hidden plan, one that is unfolding to bring us the gift of enlightenment.
Our final card today sees a swift return of 7 The Chariot. Today the sheer speed is what catches my attention . Along with the crossing of the veil of light and dark energy.
The background of orange and purple hues, bring to mind both spiritual and physical energy propelling us ever faster forward. We cannot stop the momentum, this divine plan is in motion and beyond our control.
We can however, choose our response. The red curtain jumps out at me at this point.
The red curtain acts as a medium, a Demiurge (a being responsible for the creation of the universe)of sorts between the real, material world and the spiritual world.
The red curtain denotes the place halfway between both worlds where anything can happen and where there is no influence of time.
So on reflection today, a deep and meaningful expression of this time in our collective experience.
We can choose our responses, we are asked to follow our higher self's guidance, we can consult with our conscience, yet ultimately a higher plan is at play that we can only surrender to.
This it would appear is a part of humanity's evolutionary process. A rebirth of our world 🌎.
We are playing witness to what will be a monumental shift in our way of being. A moment of enlightenment.
Blimey .... a pretty hefty message today. No wonder my world is spinning!
