Hope everyone's keeping ok! I'm sitting here writing this and feeling that Summer's really on the way but, with how the weather's been behaving lately, who knows? Could change it's mind at any moment - well, it is a woman's prerogative...This is my final Tarot article so I'm a bit sad about that, but I'm also quite calm and confident that the time is right. I've really valued being able to contribute to the community through the VJ and am grateful to everyone who works so hard to keep it up and running and to all of those people who gave me such wonderful feedback on the article.
This month's installment is, fittingly enough, The Universe, a card that pops up to signify that a chapter of your life is about to close. The journey that started with the Fool's adventurous leap into the unknown has culminated into NOW. Your last job is to focus on taking care of any unfinished business, tidying up as it were, before moving on to a whole new beginning. Saturn, widely known to take no prisoners when it comes to doing things the way they should be done, is this card's ruling planet. Consequently this time can feel restrictive and uncomfortable as our Spirit senses the freshness that lies just around the corner, making us struggle to complete our tasks. But Saturn is only doing his job, being the planet of Karma, and as we are poised to undertake a new Karmic lesson, the Universe is making sure that we don't bring any of our old baggage along for the ride.
Surrender to this transition and trust that you are being delivered into an experience that is more suitable for you. Much has been gained, lost and reborn on your quest for self-knowledge, and you will never be the person you once were. Celebrate your success and be patient with this period of change. LISTEN to your Heart.
Fare-thee-well everybody; may you all have warm beds to sleep in, plenty to eat and wonderful friends to hold and be held by.
"The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And wither then? I cannot say" (Tolkien, The Hobbit)
