And from the universal comms team the first song to be played on radio 1 I think ? (the random stuff I remember) from The Move " flowers in the rain"
Checking out the lyrics I notice the following lines :
"And yellow roses scattered all around
The time was still approaching four
I couldn't stand it anymore
Saw marigolds upon my eiderdown"
"Yellow Rose essence is for when you feel like you’re at a mad hatter’s tea party, when reason and obvious logic has started to blur and emotions become high, intense or over run.
Yellow rose has the ability to bring a sense of solace and calm. Comforting in times of sorrow, worry, sadness, misfortune and distress. She will bring her console as feelings of comfort and cheer to allow space to enjoy life or get through the challenges and confusion around you."
- Linda Perry - Natural Magick
4 a.m in Traditional Chinese Medicine relates to the Lungs.
The emotion the lungs relate to are sadness and grief.
Symptoms of an energetic imbalance in the lungs are feelings of sadness or grief that have not been dealt with.
This can manifest in shortness of breath, fatigue, cough, frequent cold/flu, fever with chills, sore throat, runny nose, headache, allergies, asthma, chest pain, pale complexion, dry skin, depression and crying.
And taken from the Yorkshire flower essences website ...
"Marigold is a component of Yin.
This is the essence for the person who has largely blocked their feminine sensitivity.
Whereas the Aqueous Bracken personality is merely suppressing their sensitivity, the Marigold personality has gone one stage further.
They may vehemently deny and attack any suggestion that there is anything in this universe other than what can be scientifically detected and explained.
The extreme of this characteristic is the professional sceptic who seeks to expose fake healers, mediums, dowsers, etc.
Often these people are inherently sensitive but are afraid to admit it. As Shakespeare put it "Methinks he doth protest too much". They could well find it too threatening to embrace fully the feminine Yin side of their nature.
Marigold is therefore particularly useful for all those who have largely blocked the light from their feminine side. It helps to dissipate the fear of the feminine aspects and gently encourages the growth of positive insight "
Let's see how these messages relate to our cards today..
First card out is the 5 of wands ( wands representative of the fire element and action)
There appears to be a bit of a battle going on as I look at this card today. Each person trying to get ahead of the other, regardless of the impact and debris they leave behind.
It reminds me of the battles I'm seeing on the news ( I have to admit I don't watch it much) also the polarised viewpoints, in some cases spats and arguments playing out on Facebook over masks, vaccines, covid-19, conspiracy.... the list goes on.
It feels like it's mirrored in our card today (and in the messages above)
It appears to be creating an antagonism, a disharmony and separation.
Just like our card, if the participants were to work together and support one another's journey, then the whole would benefit. ( a balance of yin and yang)
Hmmm .... it feels like it could be all too easy to get caught up in this standoff between viewpoints, causing ongoing disruption and emotional upset.
Our second card is the 7 of pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation)
We see a young man lovingly nurturing his plant. All the effort this far, in setting the seed, feeding, watering and tending to it has bought forth abundant growth, and yet he can't see the deep roots he is putting down, just his intuition guides him to keep on going, keeping the faith that his loving energy is having an effect. ( there's that yin energy once again)
Our final card today is 20 Judgement. A moment of spiritual awakening. A feeling that every single previous moment has led to this precise point in our history.... this exact moment.
It's time to shift to a whole other level, energy, paradigm.
To rise above the noise of the 5 of wands, to hold the course and belief of the 7 of pentacles, because the moment of judgement has arrived.
It looks a much lighter expression of ourselves as we rise up above the lower squabbles of as some will have heard me say before the " he said, she said... shit"
Maybe it's time to move beyond this duality into oneness ?
