Welcome to your weekly post about the energy of the week, what it will be like, and how to take better advantage of that energy.
Let us begin.
This card relates to the ending of a cycle. A chapter that needs to be closed. When we see this card in a reading, we try to understand what cycle is coming to an end.
Now it does not mean that this item will not come around again, for history will repeat itself.
The lesson of The World is about pushing through the crap we have piled on top of our self. It is the emergence of our spirit into this world, made whole, into flesh.
We arrive at our destination feeling whole and complete. We end the chapters with a feeling of hope and determination.
Ready to start the next chapter of The Fool Card.
We shed one skin to transform into another. Ready for the adventure set before us. If the Death card is the Cocoon, and Judgement is the breaking through, then the World is the opening of our wings.
We explore our new body and the person we have become.
This is the end of a certain suffering for we have learned to let go of the past.
This is the “Ah Ha” moment we have, that pushes us forward into our next spiritual lesson.
A word of advice. The World card does not always gracefully lead us into The Fool card. Sometimes we skip the beginning and land right on Park Place, causing a chain reaction of good, for we are stronger and wiser now.
Four of Wands, Ten of Swords, Five of Coins:
We see someone lost.
We see someone transforming.
We see someone becoming strong within the struggle of their spiritual journey.
This is all about an ending of a cycle, but we must learn to let the go of the situation once it is gone.
What have we learned from the experience?
The struggle can be hard at times as it pushes us against the rocks along the side of the river of life.
We become discouraged as the flow of the river becomes wild, pushing us along the bank, and telling us that we can not pass.
What if we are meant to rest for a while.
What if we are lost and by going against the flow of the water, we find that the struggle is created by our self.
We are frustrated.
We feel defeated.
I am here to tell you to keep trying.
Maybe we have to walk for a while following the flow of the river to a calm spot, putting our little boat back in the water, and float safely to the next destination.
The goal is before us and we can feel it, but sometimes we have to stop and rest so that we can build up strength.
Sometimes we have to hit rock bottom and get back up, so that we can know just how strong we are.
The end is only the beginning of a new adventure.
Never give up on the journey.
If we feel lost then stay in one spot and wait for the light of Spirit to show us the way home.
Until next time.
