Just an illusion.
Oh and good job universal comms team... what a tune !
Imagination and " just an illusion"
Wow I'm in 1982 with my gold headband around my forehead all over again, love it 😀
Very apt lyrics perhaps ...
Searching for a destiny that's mine
There's another place another time
Follow your emotions anywhere
Is it really magic in the air.....
Never let your feelings get you down
Open up your eyes and look around
It's just an illusion, illusion, illusion.
Hmm a repeating message of previous days...looking beyond what's presented to seek out the truth.
Let's see what our cards show us today...
First card out today is the page of pentacles (pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation)
And there she is pirouetting on the spot.
The pirouette is that which both turns in upon itself and moves toward another place or time.
An interesting idea, turning in upon ourself whilst simultaneously moving to another place.
A suggestion perhaps that it is our inward journey that is truly the catalyst in our progression forward.
In our card our figure gazes down to her left, dipping down into her feelings and emotions, reiterating the inner work suggested by the pirouette.
The mandala under her foot makes me think of a hearth rug, in an old fashioned traditional home.(Hearth and home a symbol of traditional family values and home life).
At the centre of the home, the hearth provides warmth and light, food and protection, also symbolising love, fertility and life.
A depiction of energetic balance, with the masculine fire and the feminine receptacle.
I'm drawn to the pentacle in her hand, I'm hearing the phrase
"The wheel keeps turning ", perhaps suggesting that things have begun developing, unfolding, or progressing.
If we're going to act, we have to do it now, once the wheels are turning, there is no going back.
Our second card today is the 7 of cups( cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions)
Yet what is real, what is illusion?
We see a chap trying to choose between the array of options infront of him.
So many options, but which flows?
We see an illusionary castle, a mask to hide behind and snakes and ladders.
Thinking of the childhood game, no matter how strategic we may try to be, there is an element of chance weaved into every move. It's the throw of the dice.
Did you know?
Snakes and Ladders originated in India as a game based on a map of the spiritual world.
The symbolism of the ladder as a means of ascent and the snake as a means of descent.
In effect the snake symbolically is equivalent to a tunnel in this context.
It describes the manoevering required around the body in the search for the crown chakra and the exit point to the Higher spirit (or higher connection or consciousness).
We also see a bat's wing in the card.
Because of their echo-location and maneuvering in the dark, bats represent the perception of things that others cannot see.
What may appear as an illusion to some perhaps ?
Bats often represent death in the sense of letting go of the old and bringing in the new.
They are symbols of transition, of initiation, and the start of a new beginning.
Our final card today is the 5 of cups.
There she is putting her toe into the cup ( singing bowl) emotionally she is tentively tiptoeing into the emotional void of the as yet unknown.
The next steps aren't fully illuminated.
Although we see light at the end of that tunnel.
An indication that a long period of difficulty is nearing an end.
We can also see a singing bowl filled to the brim with an abundance of rainbow colours.
This rainbow of colours is often viewed as a symbol that we can move from one moment or situation in our spiritual development to the next level.... yet another repeating message for us here today perhaps?
In summary today, we are going through a metamorphosis of our exsistance on the macro, which in turn on the micro level may feel overwhelming, unclear or uncertain, I guess we are bring asked to take the leap anyway.... and trust we will make the right choices.
“Every great move forward in your life begins with a leap of faith, a step into the unknown.”
