Today's storytelling .
Keep feeling fascination.
And of course the song for today, by The human league (that's interesting in itself!)
is of the same name.
Now let's just take a look at how very apt the lyrics are for today...
"If it seems a little time is needed, decisions to be made.
The good advice of friends unheeded,the best of plans mislaid.
Just looking for a new direction, in an old familiar way.
The forming of a new connection, to study or to play.
And so the conversation turned, until the sun went down.
And many fantasies were learned, on that day.
Keep feeling fascination, passion burning, love so strong.
Keep feeling fascination
Looking, learning, moving on.
Well the truth may need some, re-arranging.
Stories to be told.
And, plain to see, the facts are changing,no meaning left to hold".
Blimey, it's as though Phil Oakey and crew were looking into a crystal ball when they wrote these particular lyrics !
And so onto today's first card. 14 Temperance(pairing with 5 The Hierophant)
Angel number 14 is a message from the angels asking that us keep our focus, positive affirmations and intentions on manifesting our goals and aspirations. Angel number 14 can be a sign from our angels that they are there to assist us with manifesting our true desires.
In the card we see a young man casually dressed sitting; legs crossed, with the infinite balance of the sun and the moon in front of him. An angelic being is behind him. Perhaps the being " has his back" so to speak.
The colours of violet and yellow suggest the balance between the soul's purpose and the ego's needs.
It's as though the whole universe is captured in the card. The young man is in the universe, and the universe is in him, there is no separation.
He is all all-knowing in the sense that he is aware of the past, present, and future.His divine presence encompasses the whole of the universe.
Perhaps he is reminding us that we too are a part of the universe , that we too must maintain balance and flow, between what we believe we need and what is truly our purpose.... what a link to our song for today hey?
Our next card today, sees the return once more of the ace of swords (swords representative of the air element, thought and mind) with our song title in mind ,(see what I did there ) I wonder is the contemplative woman in our card experiencing fascination or frustration?
I wonder if she might be reminding us to choose our thoughts ?
I wonder what questions we may ask of ourselves if we were to become absolutely fascinated instead of allowing any frustration to pollute our mind ?
Our final card today is a return of 3 The Empress.... as I write this the universal comms team give me another song!
"Return of the Mack" by Mark Morrison.
Seems a bit of an odd link... until I read through the lyrics as though the ultimate Mother ( Empress) Gaia - Mother Earth, were singing it to us...
"Well I tried to tell you so (yes, I did)But I guess you didn't know, as I said the story goes.
Baby, now I got the flow
'Cause I knew it from the start.Baby, when you broke my heart
That I had to come again, and show you that I'm real.
All those times I said that I love you
(You lied to me) yes, I tried, yes, I tried.
(You lied to me) even though you know I'd die for you.
(You lied to me) yes, I cried, yes, I cried.
So I'm back up in the game.Running things to keep my swing.
Letting all the people know, that I'm back to run the show.
'Cause what you did, you know, was wrong
And all the nasty things you've done.
So, baby, listen carefully
While I sing my come-back song".
Sung through the voice of Mother Earth, the lyrics take on a whole new profound meaning!
In the card we see The Empress in a sleepy pose. She's resting and allowing the cycle of the moon to restore her.
She's taking to time she needs right now to replenish and to nurture the new World growing in her belly.
A new World waiting to be born.
Wow... another deep, powerful and meaningful message today.
