Sometimes, when we are desperately seeking change in our lives, it can seem as if nothing is moving. To outer appearances our life seems to stubbornly proceed in the way it always has, and things seem devoid of life and passion. The structure of our day to day lives seems solid and unchangeable, and we really can’t see a clear path forward, apart from the one we are stoically trudging along. However, just below the surface, still out of conscious awareness, things are starting to stir. Deeper down there is a riot of colour and inspiration which will soon break through to the surface. Hang on in there….the change we are seeking is on it’s way!
If you have felt isolated and closed off from the world recently, now is the time to re-emerge into the stream of life again. There is much to explore, and the rainbow at the top of the card holds the promise of magical experiences and connections to explore. If you have felt jaded and disillusioned with the world and what is happening in it, this card promises that you will now find much to inspire and delight you if you re-engage and get involved with causes close to your heart.
This card can represent the worries, struggles, misunderstandings and negative thought patterns that are a natural part of the human experience. If you are experiencing painful thoughts, this card can ask you to consider how your thoughts themselves might be exacerbating your struggle.
This card also serves as a reminder that we learn from difficult experiences. We can use our reasoning and story-telling skills to reframe our experiences and lay the groundwork to move beyond the rawness.
This week could feel restrictive and confining. Although there is nothing wrong with life feeling stable and secure, at other times we wish to break free from the rigidity and over defined boundaries and seek more freedom to do things our own way. This week take some time to explore new options and ways of doing things…..often a change is as good as a rest!
This week, the Two of Wands speaks of the creative potential which is now within touching distance. We have the ability at our disposal to direct this power, we just need to own this, and take control of it. It reminds me of the phrase, “light the blue touch paper, and stand well back”. Things are really about to take off. It also reminds me of two trajectories coming together….the synergistic energy of the two, eclipsing and enhancing the power of the one.
This week a sudden happening may come like a bolt out of the blue, and jolt your world into a new paradigm. These kind of events, which come from left field, are often unsettling and disorientating, however they invariably make way for more fulfilling conditions to enter our lives. Sometimes the only way for big changes to occur is by razing the present structures to the ground, and building something stronger, more stable and enduring in it’s place. Ultimately, whatever happens this week will prove to be for the best.
This week take some time out to just ‘be’. Sometimes we forget we are human beings, and act more like human ‘doings’ as we rush around trying to cross things off our ever increasing to do list. So today try and make life a little easier on yourself…..scratch anything that isn’t strictly necessary, and give yourself five minutes out of your busy day to close your eyes, breathe deeply, and get in touch with your inner voice. It may be that taking a brief timeout may inspire you with fresh insight or new creative ideas which will help make the rest of your week more productive.
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.
This week may be one of those weird and wonderful times where the hand of fate plays a part. It may not be immediately apparent, but when you look back with the benefit of hindsight you might see that this week was a turning point or crossroads in some way. The threads of fate twist and turn in mysterious ways and it’s impossible to unpick them and see the bigger picture from our perspective. However, just because it isn’t visible to us doesn’t mean that there is not an order and pattern moving beneath the surface of life. Embrace the mystery!
It feels as if you’ve spent too long cooped up indoors. Maybe you have become isolated and withdrawn, and almost hermit like as you have retreated into yourself. Maybe you feel as if life is passing you by, as you press your nose against the glass of life and watch as other people have fun. It’s time to jump back into the flow. Reconnect with the natural world and gaze with awe and wonder at all it has to offer. Be here now, and be open to the sensory delights this earthly playground bestows upon us. Drink it all in and enjoy!
