When I turned this card over today, the sight of it was a welcome relief. This is the Ace of Wands from The Spacious Tarot, a beautifully simple but evocative card.
It reminded me immediately of a line from a Kate Bush song, Symphony in Blue….
“When that feeling of meaninglessness sets in,
Go blowing my mind on God:
The light in the dark, with the neon arms,
The meek He seeks, the beast He calms,
The head of the good soul department.”
It made me feel as if there is a higher power, however we want to interpret that, whether we see that as God, the Universe, or our Higher Self, that is guiding us through this unprecedented time.
It gave me a sense of hope and optimism for the first time in a while. It seemed to be saying that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and although this glowing spark is small, it is real, and will grow stronger as it gains momentum. This makes me think of the energy and vitality of new beginnings. Maybe we can never go back to the way things used to be, but this crisis which has touched everyone in one way or another, will pave the way for new creative and inspiring solutions to take us forward into our new reality.
Until next week,
