Change is gonna come.
And from the universal comms team, the power house...Aretha Franklin and a song of the same title.
Let's see what change awaits us with today's cards.
First out today the 2 of pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation)
We see a woman trying to balance two pentacles. She's trying to find some sense of equilibrium. The background shows a grey landscape.
In colour psychology, grey represents neutrality and balance.
Its colour meaning likely comes from being the shade between white and black. However, grey does carry some negative connotations, particularly when it comes to depression and loss. Its absence of colour makes it dull.
The word "stuck" comes to mind when I think of grey.
And I guess that's where we have been. Stuck in limbo, stuck in lockdown, stuck in our progress perhaps?
We also see lots of orange in the card.
Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow.
It is associated with joy, and sunshine. Orange represents enthusiasm, happiness, creativity, freedom, encouragement and stimulation.
Quite the contrast hey ?
So a balance to be achieved between being stuck or free.... between staying home or venturing out maybe?
Our second card today is the 3 of wands (wands representative of the fire element and action)
We've seen our surfer🏄♂️ girl a few times recently. That growing call to freedom and adventure gaining pace. Ready and waiting to catch the wave. ( the metaphor isn't lost on me).
She's set and ready to go, yet she's not out in the water yet.
We see a pink sea. The colour pink represents compassion, nurturing and love.
It relates to unconditional love and understanding and the giving and receiving of nurturing.
A combination of red and white, pink contains the need for action of red, helping it to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by white.
It would seem she knows she can take action and yet her insights are keeping her from diving straight in.
Our final card today is 16 The Tower.
Number 16 resonates with personal willpower, independence, initiative, action and overcoming obstacles.
Angel Number 16 is a reminder that our thoughts create our reality, therefore ensure that we hold only positive expectations about our life, lifestyle and material issues.
In the card we see a tree being struck by lightning. Butterflies are being transformed to dust. All those acorns that the squirrel has scurried away are also disintegrating. All that was known and relied on in the past is now suddenly and dramatically changed.
But did you notice the bright light appearing from behind the tree?
Or the deep teal colour surrounding it?
Teal possess strong powers of observation and perception, having the ability to identify the path forward, the way to personal success, offering balance between the pros and cons as well as the rights and wrongs of a given situation.
Teal is a wonderful colour to have around when we are stuck in a rut and are unsure in which way to move.
Teal may assist in an emergency offering clear thinking and positive decision making.
Although all familiar and trusted foundations have seemingly been destroyed, a new beginning is emerging, a brighter path is being illuminated for us.
In summary today, change is gonna come .... that's not to be disputed. How it appears and how we embrace it is really the question at hand here.
It would appear it's down to us to move forward with consideration and balance.
