Going back to our roots.
And I was given two songs from the universal comms team along with today's cards.
The first was Bucks Fizz's " Land of make believe "
And the second an absolute classic from Odyssey " Going back to my roots".
I wonder how each might play out in the cards today ?
Our first card today is the 6 of cups ( cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions)
Enter Bucks Fizz intro...
This beautiful dreamy, reminiscent and nostalgic card brings us memories of times gone by, old times, old friendships.... the ways things used to be. Its a feeling of warmth and innocence.
We see a small boy with his puppy moving through time to become a mature man and his trusty friend , now an old dog. They sit remembering those childlike adventures together.
I get the feeling that this card is a symbol of us reconnecting with some of that simplicity right now.Where summer days were full of play and adventure.
It makes me think of the long hot summer of '76. ... a time for me, of long hazy holidays in Cornwall or playing in the fields near home from morning until dusk. Not a care in the world , just total enjoyment of the moment and being surrounded by the adventure and joy to be found in nature.
Maybe the elements of slowing down and reconnecting with a more simple experience of life for many these past weeks are being highlighted here. A more balanced, caring and meaningful way of being.
Our second card today is the page of pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation) and as this earthy page appears I hear a track shift to Odyssey's
"Going back to my roots", what I notice with this card today is the feeling of starting afresh, new seeds planted and creating a new firm , more balanced foundation.
Its as though we have gone back to the basics of what matters. What's important and in some ways it feels like going back to the roots of society and foundations of community.... I kind of want to say like going way back in time, to old values...
I'm shown an almost tribal ... no not tribal...
As much as a community hamlet or settlement, I'm talking way back in time, when nature was revered, the seasons were honoured and community was treasured....
Where each looked out for one another. A simpler life, living with more wholeness .... can I hear Bucks fizz again..?
" ... the land of make believe..."
It feels like a message to remind us to keep a tight hold on what we have rediscovered , through this experience.
Our final card today is the king of cups ( another water element card) he is the ultimate heartfelt leader, compassionate, balanced and wise.
He meditates on his situation, with a fish in front of him and starfish beside him.
The Fish animal totem allows us to connect with water, the most creative and mysterious element of our world.
Since ancient times, it has symbolised the depth of our subconscious and knowledge.
In Native American culture , fish symbolises life, spiritual change and motion.
The Starfish is a universal and celestial symbol of infinite divine love.In addition to love, the Starfish also emanates the energies of inspiration, guidance, brilliance, intuition and vigilance, with its connection to the stars.
We see a sailboat upon the sea behind our king.
Sailboats symbolise journey and adventure...
And boy ....this has been some journey !
They are also associated with being carried along by the “breath of life,” as its primary form of momentum is gained through the wind in its sails. It's not lost on me that this pandemic has hit us right there ...."the breath of life", on so many levels .... what a massive wake up call .
The Sailing symbolism represents a spiritual voyage, with the water embodying the source of all life, the embodiment of spirituality, the spiritual wisdom of the soul’s journey.
The symbolism of sailing represents a new beginning, of exploring a deeper level of our collective consciousness.
We are being
called to re-awaken, to begin a more in-depth analysis of our knowledge and understanding of our higher self and of our purpose here on Earth.
We are being called to go back to our roots, back to our foundations, in order that we may build a new more balanced , whole and meaningful way of being.
I wonder... will we heed the call ?
I hope so 🙏
