I'm so excited
As I was shuffling the cards , before I'd even picked any from the pack, the universal comms team were playing The Pointer Sisters " I'm so excited" in my head. I did remind them this is a family show... lol
I do feel an air of excitement this morning though to be fair. The sun is out; that's always uplifting , I just watched a live on Facebook from my friend Gregg in Spain, who is now allowed out yay!
He was at the sea's edge and the waves were lapping in the background. Another friend posted a card in our WhatsApp group saying it looked like light at the end of the tunnel.... repeating messages of uplifting hope.
So onto to today's first card, the page of wands.(wands representative of the fire element and action)
Wow look at the energy being whipped up in this card. Such momentum being built.
The words "free-spirited" comes to mind, which was how I felt the energy of my friend in Spain from his video.
There's certainly a spark of a new beginning held within this card. We see a salamander print on her trousers
The salamander meaning brings to focus the power of vision and opportunities. It symbolises transition and the ability to face challenges and flourish in adversity.
The meaning of the salamander promises change and enlightenment.The scene is awash with golden yellow and we can see a flash of turquoise high above. The colour gold is the colour of success, achievement and triumph. At the uppermost level, this is a colour which is associated with higher ideals, wisdom, understanding and enlightenment.
It inspires knowledge, spirituality and a deep understanding of the self and the soul.The colour turquoise is associated with meanings of refreshing, calming energy, it brings wisdom, serenity, wholeness and creativity.
This colour brings emotional balance, spiritual grounding, joy, enhanced intuition and spiritual growth.
Our second card today is the 6 of cups (cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions)
Angel number 6 is all about finding balance in our life, It's a sign that we are outwardly focused to the detriment of our internal, spiritual life.This could also mean that we need to focus on our domestic life in a literal way, including our home, spouse or children. The 6 of cups is traditionally seen as a very nostalgic card. Looking back to the past ( sometimes with rose tinted glasses ) as we can see the card is awash with this rose tint.
Deep rose pink brings happiness and thankfulness. It symbolises gratitude, grace, joy and loyalty.
Loyalty is also mirrored in the Labrador we see developing from puppy to grown dog.Labrador retrievers represent trust, loyalty, empathy, compassion, joy, and playfulness.They accept us as we are. They bring unconditional love to our life.
Memories and people from the past may enter our awareness with the 6 of cups, it can also allow our inner child to surface along with a vision of our future self.A timeline stretching from infinity to infinity , what a reassuring thought .... that this is a small snapshot in our ongoing journey of existence.
Our final card today is 18 The Moon.Number 18 is symbol of life.In the Hebrew system of the numerical value of words, the Hebrew word for life (chai) has the value of 18. This makes 18 a favorable number as it indicates hopes for the future.The number is often associated with the moon, the moon being a symbol of mystery and intuition, as we see in our card.In more traditional tarot decks the moon is shown dripping tears.The symbols of the card indicate that the material is trying to destroy the spiritual.
The moon couples with The Hermit. Both asking us to delve deep into our inner world. To move through illusion to illumination (which arrives in the next major arcana archetype 19 The Sun)
So overall today we see a message of hope, a light at the end of the tunnel. There is perhaps a little more introspection to come first .... and then a brighter future is on the horizon.
"The future is much brighter than the past. You just have to find the light switch".
