“Beginnings are usually scary and endings are usually sad, but it’s everything in between that makes it all worth living.” Bob Marley
I love to see Earth Princess in this reading, falling as it does on the feast of Brigid, or Bride, which was my inspiration for this particular story in Thoth Journey. The cards today suggest that you are able to glimpse for a moment that the whole of your experiences are balanced, as if in the palm of your hand. It is one of those magical moments where for a brief instance, all becomes clear, and the perspective that this gives you is reassuring. Although the feeling is unlikely to continue, take heart that this whisper will become stronger over the following days, months an years, as little by little your endings give way to a new beginning, even though that may seem to be the last thing that could possibly happen right now.
Ritual for Change
Rise a half an hour earlier than usual, make a hot cup of tea, and sit yourself in your favourite chair. While the tea is cooling, shuffle the cards, trying to find the feeling that is uppermost in your heart. Try to still your mind from questioning, and just focus on the feeling. When you are happy with the feeling of the cards, draw any two. Whilst you are drinking your tea, read the relevant stories, referring to the paintings, and see what comes up for you. Be aware of how you are feeling, and make short notes if you have the time; a journal of these readings can be a valuable and precious asset.
The first card will tell you what to focus on as you go about your daily life, the people you meet with, the work that you do, the necessary chores, the duties and the tasks. How to physically arrive in the best shape, at the end of your day. The second card is for your secret self, the chrysalis within. It will tell you what is needed to aid your transformation, what feeds your soul and how to cope with the burdens that you bear. This card will keep you going, guiding you until after the sun goes down, and sleep beckons……..Rinse and repeat for as long as you need; don’t rush, change rarely happens overnight.
