To grow anything in spring we must nurture the soil, the earth that we have just reaped...
The Tarot Card for today that presented itself during meditation and after shuffling my deck is: Key 0 in the Major Arcana. In the deck I used or this, The Sacred Circle Tarot by Anna Franklin & Paul Mason (Llewellyn, 1998, 2011), the card is entitled “The Green Man” but it is commonly referred to by its Rider-Waite title “The Fool”. What’s the message for us today from Key 0?
There is new energy forthcoming. The clear message is to cleanse space in yourself, your life, you’re your experiences to welcome this new energy or adventure or endeavor, to prepare by celebrating in gratitude the space for its arrival, preparing the space for its growth in your life and experience, and recognizing the support you have all around you for this new beginning, new energy, new passion, new project to be received and integrated and processed and grown and experienced in whatever way it is meant to be in your life.
This card has many meanings and layers and depths to the understanding it provides. It dances between the light and shadow of our experiences and learning. The card represents our conscientious attention to our own Consciousness – including our waking mind, unconscious mind, and “altered states” of mind. But for now - for today - consider this Celtic New Year season, this season of honoring the Ancestor’s and dearly departed past, this season of generosity of spirit and gratitude, this season of harvest and gathering as a time of slowing down to meet what it is we have asked for, to prepare to receive everything about it – what it means to experience it or have it or attend to it – and to recognize that the empty spaces and hallowed, reaped grounds still need care and nourishment as such in preparation for the changes we are making.
Peace & blessings to you!
