The magnificence is within us.
Today's song from the universal comms team came in an unusual format, now normally I get the song first, yet today it came in the form of the artist's name " Nick Cave" , I wasn't given the track , so when I went to YouTube this was the song that jumped out at me.
" Into my arms" a truly beautiful song. I have no idea yet how it fits with today's cards at all... so let's see how this unfolds!
So I just listened to the full lyrics of the song and watched the video, noticing the 11:11 on my phone.
According to numerology, the number 11 is a “master number” which signifies intuition, insight, and enlightenment.
When paired together, 11 11 is a clear message from the universe to become conscious and aware.
Many people suggest that seeing 11 11 signifies that your spirit guides are attempting to contact you. I then noticed the post I was reading was posted on the 21 Jan (only my birthday !)
Wow, what's going on with the universal comms team this morning?
I have to say the words and video to go with this stunning Nick Cave track bought tears to my eyes. Do have a watch, it's a truly moving piece, a message of faith and love, so pertinent to the historic time on this Earth that we are living through... and all on Easter Sunday no less.
Wow... today's storytelling is packing a punch already ... and we haven't even started on the cards !
So let's do that...
Our first card today is the mighty Emperor ( I may have mentioned in a previous post that we are in fact in the year of the Emperor, number 4 in the major acarna). We see a man sitting casually on a red planet ( Mars) his right leg crossed over his left, his left hand holding his ankle. In his right hand he has a chess piece.(The king) The Emperor is the king of Kings. On the wall behind him we see a rams skull.( aries). On his left forearm we see the tattoo of an ankh.
Literally, the term "ankh" in translation from Egyptian means "life" or "who lives."
Some researchers of esoteric symbolism have interpreted the backbone of the Ankh (Cross of Tau) as a symbol of the descent of the spirit into matter, and the circle as the "divine Eye” that shines the light on the world of men.
A shift of iridescent light drifts down from the heavens above the crown of his head.
The floor beneath him is an ordered chequered pattern.
He is the depiction of the ultimate father. Authority, power and divine. He represents the establishment, rules , strategy and leadership from on high.
He has a driving active quality to him, with the Mars and Aries energy.
Perhaps he represents the rules and regulations that we are living within. He may be asking us to put our trust in his knowledge, wisdom and higher power.
Our second card today is The Hermit , the number 9 in the major acarna.
The angel number 9 symbolizes love, faith, spiritual enlightenment, and spiritual awakening.
It also represents karma and the universal spiritual laws.The angel number 9 means that we have the potential to be natural lightworkers.
The purpose of a 'Lightworker' is to wake up the people that inhabit this beautiful planet and connect them with their true Divine spirit.
Our role is to teach Oneness and close the separation gap that occurs when people forget that they are spiritual beings having a physical experience and not the other way around.
In the card we see a young woman levitating in a beam of golden light. She is dressed in white and is deep in medative contemplation. She wraps her arms loosely around her knees.
Around her is a luminescent turquoise, with many steps leading up through rocks next to the deep of the sea.
She is going through a transcendent spiritual experience. One could say enlightenment. In order to do so she has retreated from the world to seek the depths of her soul to seek higher knowledge.
At the forefront of the card we see a lantern, aglow with a bright flame.
Perhaps she is a mirror for us, a suggestion to use this time to seek our own inner sage.
To conduct our own life audit .... and to make changes our world , to bring not only our own enlightenment, but to shine brightly for those around us, to be the beacon of love and hope ( into my arms... as Nick Cave sings) just as described in the role of a lightworker.
Our final card today see a return of our strong and firey King of wands ( wands representative of the fire element and action)
We see him locked on and focused with his piercing eyes.
He really does have the "coeur de lion".
The lion symbolism also emphasises personal power, our strength, self-confidence, courage and assertiveness.
It also signifies how we are the master of our own domain and how we are the epitome of strength, power.
The lion is ferocious and at the same time beautiful.
He perhaps imbues us with his passion to create a better , lighter , heart centred way of being for our future world. He has the power and majesty to achieve it, to make it happen.
Maybe...just maybe he appears today to allow us to see the same of ourselves, our destiny is ours to behold. We have magnificence inside each and every one of us. We can make a difference.
Or as a famous sports brand would say it's up to us to "just do it!"
