Prepare for landing
In the number ‘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, how you order your spiritual life, how you live in the material world. and possibly how you navigate in a spirited/spiritual way. ‘8’ can be dictatorial, and overly controlling. Be Mindful of how you use your power. This not about ‘power over’ rather about self empowerment and leading from the heart knowing the balance of power and adjusting accordingly.
Pretty easy to see how the ‘Balance/adjustment’ card smoothly fits into the ‘8’.
Balancing the use of self power, adjusting to the influx of other energy that pushes at your edges, realizing that life is not fair and equal for everyone and maybe not for you too. There is importance in shifting attitude to adjust to endless situations that challenge, or flow, or whatever they do in your sphere of reference,or influence.
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 of change, are all part of this sense of Divine Order to be aware of, and mind-full of. (that was a long sentence, whew)
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.
