Hakuna Matata ( no worries)
Ah I have to love the universal comms team today for their song choice. From the film The Lion King, the wonderful, joyful and uplifting " Hakuna Matata"
Let's see how this little ditty weaves through our cards today.
Our first card out today , sees a quick return of the 8 of swords ( swords representative of the air element and of thought and intellect)
It is considered that the number 8 is a symbol of self-confidence, success, inner wisdom and compasion.
Other meanings of angel number 8 are decisiveness, self-discipline, efficiency and prosperity.
8 as we know is also the number of strength.
So despite the nagging self talk still giving our chap a headache ( or us it a hangover from yesterday's cards perhaps) there is the suggestion that he does in fact have the answers within himself.
It seems a leap of faith is required. In truth he really has no worries, aside from those constructed in his mind.
Master the mind and change will abound in positive ways.
Our next card today is the king of wands ( wands representative of the fire element and action)
We see this lion of a man. The lion's most common symbolic traits are: majesty, strength, courage and justice.
Commonly reffered to as "the KING of the beasts," it is a symbol of Kingly power and might.
Wow he holds us in his charismatic gaze. He is the ultimate leader to which we turn.
The salamander on his orange, firey t-shirt represents immortality, rebirth, passion, and the ability to withstand flames.
The salamander symbol also reminds us that fire is the foundation of this world and that this king represents power and protection.
Our final card today is the 3 of wands. Our sufer babe, is ready to ride those waves. She has the energy , the tools and the vision to take action.
She reminds me of hot summer days in Cornwall as a child. I would body board with my dad and grandad, they would push me out on my polystyrene body board, bobbing through the waves, then turn me around, catch the next wave and I would go shooting off to shore ... only to repeat the process over and over !
It was such joy. A reminder that all of life is transient.... both the effort and the reward.
As we look at the colours in our card, we see violet purples , this governs the Crown Chakra, at the top of the head. Violet relates to self-knowledge spiritual awareness. It is the union with our higher self.
We see the pink of the heart chakra, representing compassion, nurturing and love.
It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing.
And finally underfoot she stands upon a bright orange colour.
Orange represents confidence, joy and enthusiasm.
A colour that is sociable, creative and fun, orange is self assured, cheerful and independent.
It seems our message today really is that of
" Hakuna Matata" we have all that we need to withstand and in fact enjoy riding the waves of life.
