And the universal comms team unsurprisingly gave me Katy Perry's song 'Firework' to accompany today's cards.
In the video Katy is seen with fireworks coming out of her chest, similar to our first card funnily enough.
Looking at the lyrics, a strong message comes through.
"Cause there's a spark in you, you just gotta ignite the light and let it shine.
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July
'Cause baby you're a firework, come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y
Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colours burst".
Seems a seamless link to our first two cards in terms of imagery.
So let's see what the cards have to reveal.
First one out today, the page of cups (cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions)
Look at those sparks igniting from his heart. He can already imagine himself flying across the sky.
He holds his left knee, he's comforting any emotional fear or anticipation he might have.
We can see his eyes looking up, he is busy constructing thoughts, ideas and inspiration.
He is ready to ignite the light within him and shine it bright out in the world.
His blue top speaks of communication and self expression. He is trying to remain grounded with his khaki trousers. Yet his dreams lift him to lofty heights.
Our second card today is the 8 of pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation)
Wow just look at those colours, its like a box of fireworks just went off !
Despite the electrifying atmosphere our subject is focused . She won't be distracted at this pivotal moment. All her hardwork is about to come to fruition .
Like a student about to submit her dissertation, she has emassed so much knowledge and learning and is ready with the last moments of focused attention to pass the test with quite literally, flying colours.
Our final card today is 10 The Wheel .
I'm drawn to the woman balanced on top of the wheel. She's reached the top of that upward rotation. She has cycled through her karmic lessons and has reached a new understanding of life and her place in the world.
Change is inevitable, and the new era dawns. She is ready for whatever comes next.
Today we see a building energy, a spark, ready to burst forth. We have done the hard work, it's one last push of focused attention to reach that upward swing and positive trajectory.
Have we learnt the lessons ? I hope so.
What does this huge life lesson now make possible?
What will change, what will remain the same?
A throw of the dice and we may be back to square one..... or we can take that calculated move and reap the life-changing and life enhancing rewards of our labours.
It's up to us to use our lessons wisely 🙏 to create a new and better world.
Cause there's a spark in us all, we just gotta ignite the light and let it shine.
Baby you're a firework ;)
