On this day for lovers, St Valentine’s Day, we are invited into the #’3’, and the above Tarot cards. #6 is the card of the Lovers in the Tarot, so I will imagine this card of relationship while I consider that the day is mark with the ‘3’. ‘3’ is the number for inclusion or exclusion. There is playfulness in ‘3’, chatty, busy, creative; a trinity that brings others together to create something more. Think of some trinities. The HangedOne is a reminder that sometime as we ‘hang’ on to our life, it might be useful to turn it upside down, (in case it hasn’t been turned already) and look at a new perspective. Not necessarily to take action on that perspective/s, just to take a look-see, and feel what might need shifting. The Universe invites you to stand at the portal of that new perspective, looking out and over the world as you know it; wandering for a moment in the new promise ,that there is more to life as you know it, and you can step through to include these other choices into the rhyme and rhythm of your life. The Empress, is ‘she who’ nurtures, and gives to the creative force of life. She figuratively and literally births new life; she is Mother Earth, she is ‘pregnant with possibilities’ and the promise of new life.
If today is your birthday, these are questions to consider for the whole year. Grab one or all and see what stirs you up. Change the wording around to make it feel right for you. As you ponder these thoughts and questions, please take a moment to sit quietly and breathe. Let your breath guide you into a quiet place for the questions to have a moment to brew and shimmer. Invite your wisdom to be your guide.
QUESTIONS TO PONDER
What is ‘pregnant’ with possibilities in your life?
How will you nurture your creative gifts?
What might you need to simply sit with for awhile and ponder before you take action?
What keeps you busy and distracted from engaging in your ‘Heart’s Desire’?
What needs to be included in your journey and what needs letting go of?
Who or what have you ignored, or not noticed that might be exactly what you desire?
Who or what needs nurturing in your world?
How can you nurture yourself?
When you look out at the world as you know it, what in the distances calls to you?
And… how will you bring that in for a closer look?
