Strange title came along with today's song from the universal comms team.
It's the haunting voice of the beautiful David Sylvian (a teenage crush of mine) lead singer of the band Japan, singing "Ghosts".
An interesting choice.
I guess in this quiet time for so many of us, may well have been visited by the ghosts of our mind.
Our beliefs challenged and our foundations turned upside down.Perhaps we may now have questioned many of the illusions that have been bought into our awareness.
On reflection, a very thought provoking soundtrack to today's storytelling.
So onto our first card for today. The 3 of Wands (wands representative of the fire element and action)
The angel number 3 has the energy of kindness, joy, creativity, and imagination. It represents inspiration, creation, manifestation, and growth. It symbolises the interconnectedness of your body, mind, and spirit, and is carefully aligned with the divine energy.
On the card we see a young woman, hair flowing in the breeze. She is carrying a surf board, her body is decorated with white ,tribal type markings. She looks out over a crimson pink sea and a violet sky, it appears to be dusk. Three wands burn bright flamed torches. The ground beneath her has an orange hue.
She looks on, ready to catch the wave when it comes. She's ready to take action and ride with the flow.
Mind, body and spirit aligned she is poised and ready for the opportunity. She is filled with passion and anticipation of the journey unfolding.
Our second card today is 20 Judgement.
The meaning of number 20 is empowerment, it's a sign that we are more than capable of making something of ourself, and we will be successful in everything we put our heart and mind to. 20 is acknowledgement that the universe approves of our plans, decisions, and actions.
In the card we see a young woman, eyes closed, facing upwards to the light. Her arms are held upward. She invites enlightenment. We see what looks like her spirit rising up above her as though breaking free from the limitations of her grounded earthly form. Around her we see a deep teal colour.
Turquoise (or teal) helps to open the lines of communication between the heart and the spoken word.
In colour psychology, the colour turquoise regulates and heals the emotions creating emotional balance and stability.
It appears as though she is releasing the illusions of judgement, of herself and others.
She is ready to be "seen" and "witnessed", as the beautiful spirit she truly is. She has taken this time to commune with her soul, she has released and made peace with the ghosts of her mind and is ready to rise up and awaken to her full potential.
Our final card for today is 4 The Emperor.
The number 4 is a number of “being”, it is the number that connects mind-body-spirit with the physical world of structure and organisation.Four symbolises the safety and security of home, the need for stability and strength on a solid foundation of values and beliefs.
We see The Emperor sitting on his throne of the red planet , Mars. Mars represents our physical vitality, assertion and drive, how we initiate actions and react to circumstances in our life. We see the ankh tattooed on his forearm, one translation of which is "breath of life". So perhaps our Emperor is breathing life into our aims, ideas and actions. Giving them life force, energy and structure. We also see a rams skull on the wall, symbolic of Aries. As the first sign in the zodiac, the presence of Aries always marks the beginning of something energetic and dynamic. Ruled by Mars it belongs to the element of Fire and of course rapid action.
Overall today we appear to have the message of being ready; ready to catch the wave, having done our inner work we are ready to "Be" our most magnificent self. To take action, to be seen and heard in the World, with a fire in our belly and a passion in our heart to give lovingly and with spirit, to receive lovingly and with grace and to be ourselves perfectly, imperfect.
I'm reminded here of Don Miguel Ruiz's 4 agreements:

2.Don't take anything personally.
3.Don't make assumptions.
