And from the universal comms team, another new song to me One Republic and "Connection"
Some very interesting lyrics with this one....
"These days my waves get lost in the oceans
Seven billion swimmers, man I'm going through the motions
Sent up a flare, I need love and devotion
Traded for some faces that I never know, notion
Maybe I should try to find the old me
Take me to the places and the people that know me
Tryin' to disconnect, thinking maybe you could show me
If there's so many people here, then why am I so lonely?
Can I get a connection?
I'm just tryin' to paint the picture for me
Something I could give a damn about at maybe 40
Years and I be ready and willing and able to edit the story
'Cause there's so many people here to be so damn lonely
Can I get a connection?"
A strong feeling from these lyrics of a message of needing a greater more meaningful connection both with ourselves and between us all here on planet Earth perhaps?
So let's see how this threads through our cards today, all from the major arcana!
First out today is 17 The star, this is especially interesting as we are in the energy of not only the lunar eclipse early tomorrow morning, but also the Sirius gateway.
Every year during the first week of July, a sacred gateway of energy is activated between Earth and the star Sirius, bringing heightened vibrations and spiritual advancements, a time where all of humanity can raise their levels of consciousness.
At this time, the Sun and the Earth are the furthest away from each other,making way for the energy of another to be thrust into the limelight. This star shines 23 times brighter than our own Sun and is known as Sirius or Earth’s “Spiritual Sun”.
Sirius has long been revered by many ancient cultures and was believed to be the gateway to heaven. In Ancient Egypt, Sirius was considered to be the star of the goddess Isis, who ruled over death and rebirth.
Sirius itself holds the energy of freedom and is all about expanding our awareness so we can let go of limitations.
So in our card we can see a woman looking heavenward towards the brightest star in the sky, could this be Sirius I wonder?
It feels a time of advancement in our consciousness and connection to universal energy..... Take a closer look at the card... what do you see? ;)
Our second card today is 6 The Lovers. Now there's a depiction of soulful connection if ever you needed one.
The film Avatar comes to mind today with this card. If you've never seen this film, it may be one for the watch list this weekend, a truly beautiful film, with I believe, a deeper message.
Within this storyline we witness the depiction of a spiritually interconnected eco-system, the story revealsthat the goal of the Mother Goddess is not to “take sides” in any war, but to “protect only the balance of life.”
I'm also drawn to the Merkaba in between the two people, I've mentioned this before, but if this is a first-time read then I'll give you a little more insight.
The Merkaba, translates literally to light, spirit, body.
The Merkaba Symbol is a shape made of 2 intersecting tetrahedrons that spin in opposite directions, creating a 3-dimensional energy field.
We can activate this vehicle of light around our own body with practiced meditation and breathing techniques.
The merkaba is said to provide protection and transport our consciousness to higher dimensions. The merkaba shape reminds us of the potential power we can wield when we unite our own energies in pursuit of connection and growth.
( there's that connection word again).
Our final card today is 15 The Devil. I know many folk don't like to see this card, but as I've said many times there are no good or bad cards, they all have duality weaved within them.
What I do notice today, is the figure in the bottom right-hand corner of the card. What do you notice about him?
Yep he's wearing what looks like a face mask and gloves.... seem familiar?
Also do you notice those strings he's attached to?
Hmm he's the puppet and we see the puppeteer pulling on those strings.
We also notice that he's holding his head... maybe suggesting that his thoughts are the real challenge here.
I wonder what his conditioned response is saying to him ?
It is in the darkness that we are truly free to heal. And as the full moon is about to be thrust into the darkness of the lunar eclipse, maybe this is the perfect time to cleanse and clear all of those habits, limiting beliefs and old patterns that are holding us in a place of fear, limitation and unhelpful thinking patterns.
The Devil card today is actually inviting us to step into that void ( I wrote about this yesterday)so that we can break free of the chains that bind us, in order that we can illuminate those things that hold too much sway over our attention and find a deeper, more healthy, soulful and meaningful connection with both ourselves and the World that we inhabit.
Well some strong threads of connection today in our storytelling.It does seem like we are standing at the edge of a choice point moment.
We are perhaps being gifted the perfect alignment of energies to clear, cleanse and connect at a more truly evolved level than ever before.
