Oh boy, what a track from the universal comms team... I've literally been dancing around the room to this one. Jason Derulo and "Tip Toe"
So as the lyrics suggest.... Hold tight whilst we tip toe through the cards today...
So our first card today is 10 The Wheel, our first tip toe reference from the cards... we see a woman standing on top of the wheel, balancing on her tiptoe, she's striking that balance. There feels to be an energy propelling her forward from the spiraling wheels below.
The Spiral is a sacred symbol that represents the journey and change of life as it unfolds; taking a labyrinth-like passage that leads to Source. The spiral symbol can represent the consciousness of nature beginning from its center expanding outwardly.
We also see that she is above the clouds, below there are darker storm clouds, yet she is emerging above the lighter, brighter clouds.
White clouds represent stability, inner consciousness and goals in our life. grey clouds represent bad times or difficulties that we may have been going through in our life.
The clouds also remind us that the world above and the world below actually make up one world. Clouds can help us examine our lives from a higher perspective.
Clouds are also symbols of change. As we know clouds constantly come and go and they tend to move fast, so they are a symbol of something that is transitory and short-lived. A reminder that in the grand scheme of life, what we are experiencing now, regardless of if we deem it good or bad, is transitory.
It reminds me of a quote that my good friend John uses in our Mindful Leaders training workshops about mindfulness :
“Simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).”
– James Baraz
A reminder that life is moving forward regardless, so we may as well learn from and appreciate the gift in every moment.
Our second card today is 3 The Empress. She is ready to give birth to the new world. As with any gestation, as the birthing process approaches, it may feel like it's been a long journey, carrying the growing new life, it can be tiring, exhausting and the mother may become impatient for the imminent arrival.
Of course the birthing process isn't always easy, it can be painful, long and hard going, the mother may feel as though she cannot go on when in the midst of the process..... and yet the reward of birthing new life is immeasurable.
What a metaphor for our current experience, it may feel as though it's been a long road, at times exhausting, uncertain and challenging. We are required to push through, as we are about to birth a new life... a new way of being.
Our final card today is the page of pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation)
Again we see our young woman balancing on tiptoe. Again we see she is above the treetops. I notice that the sky is the same aqua colour of our first card.
Aqua stands for inner peace and serenity. It's a sign that we are strengthening our relationship with universe/creator/source (add in your own word ) and achieving spiritual awareness. Aqua speaks about being on the right path and focusing on the depth of our emotions and our mental clarity.
It makes me think of the aqua aura quartz crystal,used to calm the emotions and the emotional body. It is a powerful stress reliever. It is also a strong energy for reducing or eliminating anger. It's energy helps process emotional disturbances, grief and traumas to a point where they are no longer stressful.
In summary today, we are being propelled forward, we are being asked to live fully in each moment, feeling it fully. It may at times feel like we are balancing on tip toe, this is a lesson in balance in the midst of all that may appear in and around us.
