Today’s card is “A twist in the tale”- The unexpected, a change you did not see coming” from the Shapeshifters Oracle. I like to use this deck during this season because the theme of the deck is Change and so much is changing right now. We are entering the holiday season. The temperatures are dropping rapidly. “Winter is coming” without a doubt and in thirty days Christmas as is already over and days are slowly lengthening again.
The card shows us a pale white girl and her white ferret. There is not much color but the red of their eyes, nose and ears and the pink glow in the back. Not quite what you would have expected of a fairy and her ferret. They come to tell us that change is coming and there is nowhere to hide. It can be about your age, your relationship, your job, a project; something is about to change and the only thing we can do is embrace and accept it and go from there. So often we are relentlessly trying to keep change at bay so we can uphold our illusion of being in control.
It would be so much more easy to accept change and then embrace it or deal with it. So many possibilities could have been ignored or set aside out of fear of change. And who knows what we have missed out on.
Nature teaches us all about change. About the beauty and the hardship. About life and destruction. Everything is part of the whole beautiful picture
Perhaps that is the message from this card: take a step back and try to see the whole story with all its twists and turns and how everything worked out for the best. That way the next twist won’t be that scary and maybe in the end a great blessing
