Planting the seeds of loving intent.
The song that came in with these cards today is "Sewing the seeds of love" by Tears for fears.
The opening scene of the video shows a face carved into rock with shutters opening , as if opening the mind, which seems apt to today's storytelling.
In our first card today, Justice 11 in the major acarna, we see a woman, with her eyes closed, smiling, holding what looks like a double handled sword balancing two copper pots, as in weighing scales, one side decorated with white and the other with black. Around her head is a light sky with wisps of clouds.
We can see a reflection of her that looks almost like a different person, eyes open, with a pensive look upon her face, she is surrounded by the deep earth.
This card is all about learning from our experiences, the good the bad and the ugly to coin a phrase.
It's the balancing of all of life. It represents truth, integrity and fairness. It allows us to observe cause and effect objectively.
In truth, we know life isn't always so clear cut, as simply as good versus bad, or right versus wrong.There may be many perceptions in between.
If we can perhaps move to a place of compassion and love for ourselves and others and be less quick to pass judgement we can create a more harmonious journey ahead.
In our second card the ace of pentacles, we see two hands cupping a disc, decorated with a mandala in hues of gold representing community and groups, along with a turquoise pentacle at the centre.
We can see roots sprouting from the bottom of the disc and new shoots beginning to break through at the top.
The suit of pentacles is the final suit in the minor arcana, the swords being thought and air, the thought is then followed with emotion, which is the suit of cups and the element of water, we then move to the suit of wands, with their fiery action, until we reach the earthy pentacles where we manifest into reality those lofty thoughts and ideas, through our emotional connection and subsequent actions into tangible reality.
It's as though we have the balance of the whole world in our hands right now. We hold the keys to our future existence and experience of life.
The pentacles, sometimes known as discs or coins, are often translated as money, yet in our card today we see the pentacle surrounded by the turquoise of spiritual growth and change.
Just perhaps we are changing our societal views and values of what is truly important?
Perhaps we are putting more emphasis on relationships, time and community in what we want to manifest ?
Perhaps we are setting new seeds for the future in terms of what has true worth?
In our final card today, the ace of swords, we see a woman eyes closed, deep in thought.
Her mind is depicted as a spiral staircase, likened to the Fibonacci sequence.
The Fibonacci sequence represents a new paradigm in predicting spiritual experience.
With a shaft of light through its centre of the staircase we see her moment of "enlightenment" .
Around the outside of the staircase we see signs, symbols and sums as she works through detailed and concise workings out.
We see symbols from Kabbalah, astrology ancient symbolism and equations.
We can see a raven flying out ahead.
Raven marks a moment to pause and give serious consideration to the messages coming your way. It marks a moment in time when something is about to transform.
This magical bird has the additional symbolic value of cleansing.
Perhaps there are outdated and unhealthy patterns and beliefs that we need to purge?
Let this sage master “call” to the quarters of creation with your intention.
Raven encourages rebirth or renewal. It also asks that we share our truth.
It is the personification of Mercury, and denotes delivering information to others.
This may be something mundane like guidance in their protection or something deeply spiritual.
You will have noticed the repetition of the number 1 in today's cards.
Angel number 1 is the angel number that we are likely to see often on our spiritual journey.
We are likely to encounter new beginnings all of the time. Yet seeing angel number 1 again and again means that the universe is offering us a new beginning, or clean slate.
In numerology, the characteristics of 1 that are most marked include independence, self-sufficiency and self-determination.
When the number 1 appears again and again in this way, we are receiving a message that we are at the beginning of a new cycle in life.
