Since we are heading towards Samhain, I've drawn my card for today from the Oracle of Shadows and Light. I like this deck a lot but haven’t used it for a long time.Maybe because it feels like this is a deck for only the darker moths of the year. Lately I've been working a lot with tarot and much less with oracles. So I thought this was a good choice for today. The key words for this card are: Collision of beliefs, styles, attitudes, energies.
These words are well depicted by an angel dressed in purple storm clouds and surrounded by lightning bolts. I imagine the thunderclaps must be deafening. She doesn't seem too happy to be the bearer of such heavy weather but she is up to the task:
“…I bring change, and when change comes for some it is simple, easy and flowing, for others, dramatic, erratic, wild and full of static!... I then appear to burn away the old and create a clear, fresh vibration, where all that is stale, and fearful, and unpleasant has been cleared away! The wonderful thing about this challenging collision is that while you’ll be nudged out of your comfort zone, you’ll also realize just how much has changed, and how far you have come! The results will be worth the pressure – trust me!”
To me this sounds a lot like The Tower where we also have this kind a of weather.
The three of us have experienced a lot of big and abrupt changes lately and we are still adjusting to all of this. Gradually things are falling into place and we are establishing a new daily routine. We are also noticing we are very tired. (And some of us are still recovering from the flu) So miscommunications are understandable but we are trying to be considerate towards each other.
The biggest change around the house for me personally is the bustle Jofee is bringing with him. The long quiet hours when I could read, paint, write and do anything I wanted are gone and I have to search for little moments in the day for myself. But on the other hand I do enjoy these short moments so much more
I am positive we will find our balance in due time and stormy weathers will calm down again.
