Let's ride away...
Oh and what a beautifully reminiscent tune from the universal comms team today. I'm a little girl once more as I listen to the TV theme tune "The white horses" by Jacky Lee.
And what dreamy escapism in the the lyrics...
"On white horses let me ride away,
To my world of dreams so far away
Let me run
To the sun.
To a world my heart can understand
It's a gentle warm and wonderland
Where the clouds are made of candy floss
As the day is born.
When the stars are gone
We'll race to meet the dawn
So when I can only see the grey
Of a sad and very lonely day
That’s when I softly sigh
On white horses
Snowy white horses
Let me ride away"
We talked about white horses yesterday too, when white horses are seen, it is often an indication of being spiritually aware. It can symbolise innocence and purity, be a sign of good fortune, or even represent prosperity.
On the other hand, it would be remiss of me not to mention that in Christianity,the first horseman (of the four) rides a white horse (believed to symbolise Christ, goes well with the them of our lovely song perhaps?), the third horseman rode a black horse and represented famine. We'll revisit this a little later in the story.
So let's see how our cards play out today...
First out is the 2 of pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation).
Blimey, she's busy trying to balance those pentacles today, isn't she?
Her skirt looks like she's popped it on back to front to me, she doesn't know if she's coming or going by the looks of it.
There has been a lot of painstaking work gone into the carving on that beautiful leather bag. The deep orange colour representative of the sacral chakra.
The sacral chakra is the second chakra. It is associated with the emotional body, sensuality, and creativity. Its element is water and as such, its energy is characterised by flow and flexibility, of course the chakra where we hold a fear of change if blocked or over burdened.
The landscape around our figure is grey, perhaps she feels a bit stuck, between her responsibilities and changes she is needing to make as she flows with the changes in the world around her.
Our next card today is 7 The chariot. Well it seems those opposing energies from our first card are now being harnessed and combined in one direction.
Things are moving at a pace, it's going to be one heck of a ride, hold on tight cause we're off... ready or not..... Pah! The universe doesn't let us sit and stagnant in our comfort zone... why, that would be no fun!
We are in the driving seat, but without any steering or brakes.... best get focused on where we're heading and keep an eye on the road ahead.
Now what did I say earlier about white and black horses?
We have duality weaved perfectly within this card, both the potential for feast or famine..... see what I did there?
On a more serious note, it is important now that we create balance, conserve what we have and use it wisely. The phrase "Waste not, want not" pops into my mind.
Buddhist teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh, wrote “The situation on Earth today has been created by unmindful production and unmindful consumption. We consume to forget our worries and our anxieties. But tranquilising ourselves with over-consumption is not the way.”
I think if anything, the pandemic has taught us what truly is of value. It's vitally important now that we remember these lessons. That we don't just jump back onto the motorway of life, forgetting the experience we have had.
Our final card today is the page of cups (cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions)
Ah... I love this dreamer, he's innovative and limitless in his ideas.... just as well as that chariot is moving fast and following new perhaps unexpected, uncharted trajectories.
Just as well that we have this intuitive and sensitive page to spot the synchronistic opportunities available to us. He holds an open heart and mind to what is ahead and what is now possible.
We see two hands coming together in spirit form.... it seems the universe is working behind the scenes, creating magic that as yet we cannot see.
Don't be surprised if pigs start flying ( metaphorically speaking.... well maybe?..)
I guess it's a message to adopt a beginners mind, to hold a sense of curiosity, as magic may be unfolding in every moment.... It's our job is to notice it!
