Here we go...
Oh and the universal comms team had me movin' and a groovin' with today's tune .... the 1993 hit by Stakka Bo and "Here we go".
Well these guys were ahead of their time with these lyrics, I wanted to include every line in all honesty, as they are so apt to where we have been and where we might find ourselves again if we don't learn from our experiences.
I would say look up the lyrics and make your own mind up, I will include a few lines here though:
"Here we go again
Here we go-go-go to the temple of consumption
Get your gear and start to spend
Here we go-go-go with a total dedication
Consume today and leave the rest behind you
Tomorrow's a surprise party buy a ticket or two (two)
Faster livin', faster, live as fast as you're able
Eat the food while it's still hot on the table (table)
Now spend if you can, the greens are burning in your pocket
Everything you don't use will lose its value tomorrow
Consumed too much today, you can always borrow
This paradigm's the best one since the day of creation
Get your gear and shape up, this is the revelation
Shop till you drop has built this civilization
Don't believe what you hear 'bout the next generation
If you go with a lot of toys you'll slip away a happy man
The greens are burning in you pocket, spend it while you can
The moon and the stars they all look down on me and say
There's a correlation between tomorrow and today
Use it in, wear it out, then throw it all away
Go get yourself a new one all you gotta do is pay
Because the more I will get, the more I will own
With a lot of things around me I will never feel alone
I work around the clock just to earn my livin'
And I wanna get, I won't spend my funds on givin', now
I'm acting irresponsible, is that what you say?"
Hmm, what a message of how we have been living life hey?
And could be tempted to charge straight back into, resuming where we left off pre-pandemic.....
Let's see what our cards have to say shall we?
First out today is the 2 of wands ( wands representative of the fire element and of action) There she is, still wondering and longing, still imagining and planning, not sure if to stay put or take action.
We see our character longingly looking out on her window onto the world.
Windows are literally the visual bridge between inside and out, both literally and metaphorically speaking.
Windows provide welcome light but also pose a threat by virtue of what the light might expose. Windows bring both light and darkness from the outside.
As human beings we are often drawn to the bright, warm light that shines through windows, possibly representing health, growth, and the courage to change. However, at a deep,unconscious level, we may also fear the light that the windows allow in as they may metaphorically illuminate our deep inner fears.
So will she stay in the cocoon of her comfort zone or will her zest and passion for life edge her to step into the unknown of the opportunities presented beyond her window.... out in the big wide world?
Our second card today suggests the latter, as in steps the 3 of wands, the subsequent card in the suit. So she's made the step, she's picked up that surf board, she was previously just imagining and this is it.... here we go.....she's ready to ride that wave, she see's those opportunities on the horizon just about to manifest..... here we go.... progress.....
Ahhh, right.... and then comes the 3 of swords... ( swords representative of the air element, thoughts, intellect and the mind) Just when we were making progress as well, full of positivity and excitement, this came to up skittle the plans!
I'm not one to swear but I do have the letters "FFS" running through my head lol. (sorry, no offence intended)
Just when we were getting some traction, a bit of a setback comes to light, its not a full stop to progress, just a couple more hurdles come into view.... but hey we are becoming Olympic hurdlers by now aren't we?

We can weather this storm.To weather every storm of life we must acknowledge that all storms pass. Storms are lessons, the more we face them, the more we become prepared for life and It’s journeys.
