I eight the starlight
I am the beam to the Earth
Standing in center
Good morning. The warm and early bloom of Spring came along last night and laid her frost on us. I have yet to see what ‘damage’ that caused on all the many beauties showing off so soon. Nature teased us… She does that.
Today’s invitation or your birthday year, comes from the number ‘8’ and the tarot card Balance/Adjustment, along with it’s Tarot ally, The Star (#17). Some tarot-authored decks, differ on the # 8 Major Arcana; Strength/Lust or Justice/Balance. I made a choice to use Crowleys delineation making the ‘8’ card Balance/Adjustment/Justice. Simply, a personal choice. Within either choice is the opportunity to consider how you balance and adjust your life; how you consider the choices you make to address inner conflict, or trusting what you know is the way to sustain equality within yourself and around you. I think there is a tending to life in a way that is supported by noticing how you feel, and trusting your intuition and instincts. Getting to far from the center of yourself will cause imbalance. There is this constant flow in the nature of things that seems to desire balance.
Your ‘ally’ The Star, reminds you that staying well and healthy, knowing your vulnerability can be an asset. And that you just might be standing between ‘heaven and earth’ acting as a vehicle for change. These are all part of this sense of Divine Order to be aware of and mind-full of.
In the ‘8’, is the management of your resources, your time, your money, and the consideration of how you control and have power; how you lead yourself and others. It is considered by some, the card of Divine Order. It will be about how you order your life and live in the material world. How you manage it and others. It can be dictatorial, and overly controlling. Be Mindful.
