On top of the World, looking down on creation.
And from the universal comms team The Carpenters and "I'm on the top of the World" ... looking down on creation.
Looking at the lyrics ...
"Such a feelin's comin' over me
There is wonder in 'most every thing I see
Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream
Everything I want the world to be
Is now comin' true especially for me
And the reason is clear, it's because you are here
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen
I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation
Somethin' in the wind has learned my name
And it's tellin' me that things are not the same
There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me"
What a description of our new World!
It's a truly heart opening time for us as we step into this new World experience.
Let's see how this plays out in our cards today.
First out is the king of swords ( swords representative of the air element thoughts, mind and intellect)
As soon as I look at the cards the words from another song come to mind,(Lacing in this case) "Zippin' up my boots, going back to my roots" as I write this I'm noticing the dragonfly on the post behind him. Dragonflies were some of the first winged insects to evolve, some 300 million years ago, if we think about that for just a moment, whatever has come and gone over 300 million years, the dragonfly has evolved to be here with us today.
No surprise then that the dragonfly symbolises change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realisation.
I wonder, what can we learn from dragonfly today?
The change we are being presented with is to embrace an understanding the deeper meaning of life.
As if we needed any further nudges, bat appears, soaring high in the cool, pure air, another omen of change. Bat urges us to pay attention to the signs around us.
The transition may seem frightening at first, but we are encouraged to let go of our old habits and patterns that no longer serve our higher calling now. They will only hinder our growth going forward.
Bats are also symbols of communication, they are highly sociable with strong family bonds. They are nurturing, highly verbal and are sensitive to those closely connected to them.
Bat appears to teach us how to enhance our level of communication and strengthen our bonds with family and friends.
In the foreground sits a wise owl. The owl represents deep wisdom, good judgment, and knowledge.
The owl is known for its sharp vision and keen observation, it reminds us that we possess insight and intuition, in other words we are urged to see beyond the masks that people wear.
Our second card today is 0The fool. Just look at that energy all converging at that one crystal point.
The energy then connects all of the seeds in the flower of life, suggesting that this is the precise moment of a new energetic era.
The flower of life symbolises creation and reminds us of the unity of everything: we're all built from the same blueprint.... even the dragonfly!
A new awakened beginning, back to the lyrics of our song today "I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation"
Our final card today is the 6 of cups ( cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions)
We see the timeline of a life before us, it's a card of nostalgia, reminiscing and looking back over our journey.
Memories of times gone by, old friends, fond feelings arise, was life simpler then?
We are in retrograde season, astrologically speaking, so no surprise as we transit into the new world that this card should show up.
Another link to going back to our roots, back to home and hearth and family... did I mention we had a new moon in Cancer yesterday ?
Looking back over our journey to see what we wish to bring with us and what we can now leave behind. Or perhaps, recognising what we had lost and now we may have rediscovered, found or reconnected with once again .... reclaiming the important, the meaningful and letting go of the gloss, the trivial the superficial.... we never needed it really anyway did we?
