Happy Birthday Lynn and Harry. This one’s for you two.
‘2’, the number of communion, exchange, counsel, guidance, mediator, seeing both sides to a story; ‘2s’ care how people connect and the mysteries of togetherness. In the Tarot, one of the ‘2s’ is the ‘11’, this is todays number with the other ‘2s’ the allies at work to support it. Lust, that sounds all so exciting and it is and isn’t.
In the Crowley deck, “Lust implies not only strength, but the joy of strength exercised. It is vigour, and the rapture of vigour. (BT p. 91-92)” It is that ‘vigour’ that we’re talking about here; that taking charge, feeling your vulnerability and finding strength in that. Not letting the overwhelm of life take charge of you rather you taking charge of it.
In the ‘20’, Aeon/Judgement, there is the calling to accountability, really ‘seeing’ life from a higher perspective, understanding the timelessness of it all, knowing where you’ve been and feeling yourself fully present right now.
In the Priestess, there is the invitation to what is beyond what we can see, the exchange with the inner world of mystery and personal counsel. The knowing that in the silence and quest for deep spiritual knowledge; it is in the listening to your quiet wisdom.
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. And remember, if overwhelm sets in, take a very little step. You have as much time as you need.
