Shine a light.
And from the universal comms team lyrics of the same, from an Elton John classic
Let's see how that shinning light shows up in our cards today.
First card today is 9 of cups ( cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions)
We see a woman jumping for joy. She is uplifted, abundant and quite literally flying high.
It looks like a treasure chest has been recovered from a ship wreck at the bottom of the sea.... or at least that's what it makes me think of today.
A treasure chest is a symbol of something that we want to hold close to our heart and keep safe, either something with sentimental value or has highly valued contents.
The sea, with its daunting width and depth, simply stands for life itself. It may be quite calm, but it become raging and even deadly in an instant, with the waves representing the sudden obstacles life throws our way. Usually, 'the sea' is used as a symbol to represent life and its hardships.
The metaphors are pretty obvious in this symbolism of course, in the context of the pandemic we are experiencing globally.
It also perhaps optimistically suggests out of hardships and life's trials, great inner treasure has been recovered.
Our second card today is the 8 of wands ( wands representative of the fire element and action)
We see multi coloured wands all coming together in perspective.
Sparks of light almost explode outwards.
The words "aha moment" come to mind. In other words an instantaneous spark of enlightenment.
There's a fast flowing energy, intensity and velocity to the wands which give the impression of moving fast through space, as though jumping forward in time , like you might see in a science fiction movie.
Maybe it suggests that Information may come thick and fast now and swift action may then follow.
Our final card today is the knight of wands. Another fiery action card.
We see a woman ecstacially drumming, so energetic is her drumming , her drum is alight ...perhaps suggesting incredible increase in energy and action.
In the background we see a black stallion rearing up on its hind legs... it looks ready to gallop ahead.
It is symbolic of immense power, illumination, stability, Patience, empowerment, inspiration, shining our light, being powerful, embracing our life’s purpose, moving forward, enlightenment and success.
Of course 'a dark horse' is a previously less known person or thing that emerges to prominence in a situation unexpectedly.
Perhaps suggesting that the unknown and unexpected is about to be illuminated.
