Movement: one step at the time

Enchanted Map Oracle
Today’s cards is from the Enchanted Map Oracle and is called Movement. The caption says: “You are in a time of positive forward motion.”
This card can be about both physical and spiritual moving forward;  a trip or a quest.  It advises us to let go of the fear of the unknown, trust in the Universe and take the next step.  
Although the interpretation in the book is very encouraging to go for it and rush to your destination, the feel I get from this card very calm and easy.
The balloon is floating effortless in the air.  The Ostrich, while being capable of running, is strolling over the plain. On his back there is a small patch of land with an mill. Probable the blades are moving too..So everything is on the go but on a very casual way. Isn't that what moving forward in life should be all about. Often when change is happening too quickly it comes with a lot of stress and maybe even anxiety. When we look at nature everything changes all the time, but sometimes so slowly we hardly even notice it. I can imagine myself living in that windmill and seeing the world around me change moment by moment.
Every day when we wake up the world is different and so are we. We cannot  do anything else but change and move forward. 


  1. What a cool looking card! My mom just went to Holland several months ago, and she was astonished to learn that people used to live inside the wind mills. It was quite an educational experience! My maternal grandfather's people are from there, so it was a special trip for her.

    1. They are amazing looking buildings: Especially when you have a few of them in a row with their blades turning in the wind :)

  2. What a cool deck. I have never seen any of the cards, so it's fun to see them and get your interpretation :-)
    Bright Blessings
