Catch a wave.
And from the universal comms team... a great tune of the same title from The Beach Boys
" Catch a wave"
Hmmm... now looking at the lyrics , despite the sunny disposition of the song, it would suggest a little bit of a nudge to be a little circumspect right now.
"They said it wouldn't last too long,they'll eat their words with a fork and spoon".
(Perhaps a reminder that we aren't at the other side of this challenge just yet)
"And watch 'em they'll hit the road and all be surfin' soon"
As restrictions ease even further this weekend, we may be tempted to all hit the road at once, hopefully not facilitating the surfing of a second wave.
"And when they catch a wave they'll be sitting on top of the World"
Maybe pointing out that this is not a leader board we want to be at the top of.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not putting a downer on things... that's really not my style at all.....I guess this is just a nudge to remain mindful as we venture out.
So on to today's cards.
Our first card today is the king of pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation)
Ah look at the warmth exuding from this king. He is abundant and at ease in the world 🌎.
He looks completely relaxed and at peace with his life as he reclines into his beanbag seat.
We see the wolf by his side.The Wolf will always help us stand our ground in the face of adversity.
It is a universal symbol of personal power, freedom and autonomy.
The wolf may appear in order to warn us about something we are not able to see coming or in order to help us sharpen our intuition.
When the wolf shows up in our life, we are urged to pay attention to what our gut instinct is telling us.
Perhaps a message here about whilst we may feel at ease and comfortable in the World ( as we emerge out and restrictions are lifted) We should keep in tune with what our intuition is telling us and act in accordance with our own feelings.
Our second card today is the 3 of wands ( wands representative of the fire element and action)
There she is poised and ready to catch the wave.
She's waiting for just the right moment. She's been waiting for this opportunity.
She has everything in place to go for it and yet she is a little hesitant to take the first step emotionally.
Our final card today is the 9 of cups (cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions)
Looks like she's hit the jackpot there, jumping for joy with a treasure chest of abundance just behind her.
She recognises the gifts of her recent experience. It has illuminated what truly brings her heartfelt joy.
The card is awash with gold. The colour gold is associated with illumination, love, compassion, courage, passion, magic and wisdom.It's the colour of success, achievement and triumph.
It is associated with higher ideals, wisdom, understanding and enlightenment.It inspires knowledge, spirituality and a deep understanding of the self and the soul.
Gold has balancing and harmonising effect on the body, mind and spirit. It is good for improving our mental attitude and emotional states. It's been called "the master healer".
As I read over the post again, what jumps out at me is the shift in us as a collective perhaps , with regards to a life of striving and material gain to survive and the contrasting gift of this experience of what in life makes truly makes us thrive.
So overall a message of following our instinct, enjoying our freedoms, yet tapping into our own inner guidance system, to make our own choices about how and when we feel is right to go riding any waves !
