Be careful what you wish for because you might just get it! Sometimes it’s difficult to know what it is we really want. Even if we have a good idea what it is, it’s impossible to envisage all the ramifications which may ensue if we were to achieve our hearts desire. How many times have we been convinced that if only we had this, that or the other we would be happy only to achieve it and realise that the state of bliss we expected is short lived? Maybe instead of being specific we could ask for whatever we encounter to be for our highest good; or to ‘let go and let God’ if we believe in a higher power.
This Card signals the beginning of something new. This has the possible potential to develop into something life changing but for now it is early days so nothing is guaranteed. It can be a new relationship, friendship, reconciliation or creative project. It could even be a new way of thinking or an alternative perspective on life. If allowed to gently unfold in it’s own way, it may evolve into something beautiful.
This week’s card, The Hierophant, has an image of a crow, which speaks of magic, intuition, wisdom, and the voice of experience. The crow is cawing, so it obviously has something important to convey to us. It could be quite literal; maybe we will read something on Twitter which has a significant message for us this week! I think it’s important to remember with this card that the the relevant information is likely to come from an outside source. It could be a mentor, counsellor or teacher, or just as likely, it may be a snippet of conversation we overhear, the lyrics of a song on the radio, or something we read on a blog at just the right moment.
The crow grasps a large key in her claws, which suggests that something vital is about to be unlocked….something of great value, which allows access to new information which has until now been under metaphorical “lock and key”. The penny is about to drop, and things fall into place.
The bolt of lightning underlies the fact that this message is likely to be received like a “bolt from the blue” when you least expect it. It is illumination that suddenly becomes available, in a classic “light bulb” or “ah-ha” moment.
Make sure that you are alert to all incoming information this week, whatever it’s source. There may be gold and jewels mixed in with the everyday dross!
Often when we can’t see properly we can start to imagine all kinds of frightening situations. When we only have the shadowy light of the moon to illuminate our path our fears can start to take on disproportionately scary guises. In the light of day these shadows can be seen for what they really are and cut down to size. Don’t let your fear take charge this week.
