Soulcards and Laguz – Don't keep the lid on

laguz Soulcards 2 Six of Pentacles Deviant moon tarot, Wildwood tarot, Original Rider Waite tarot

My Rune for today is Laguz, meaning water or lake. This is the rune of feelings and emotions, of the unconscious and of the hidden and unknown. Combined with this Soulcard from Soulcards 2 it is obvious how unhealthy it is to bottle up feelings and emotions and to keep them under a heavy lid. One way or another they will always find a way to surface and always when you’ll expect it the least.  This intense screaming inside will hurt us so much more then expressing our troubling feelings when they arise. Sometimes our cover can be so strong and impenetrable, it might even be possible we cannot hear our own soul screaming. But what if we do hear it, what to do about it?
And then I pulled the Six of Pentacles from the Original Rider Waite Tarot. The first thing that came to mind was asking for help to someone we trust. Because obviously  we are left with little to give like in the Six of Pentacles of the Wildwood tarot. The card from the Deviant Moon Tarot advises me to keep some of my time and resources for myself when others come to ask for my help after I have recuperated from this emotional tidal wave . My initial response is always give, give, give and that’s okay as long as I don’t exploit myself.
Today after a very busy morning and afternoon I am claiming some space and time for myself to do the things I love most… and maybe take a peek under that lid…

  1. This is very true. It's amazing how our own feelings can even be hard to uncover, even if we're willing to know and understand them. That Soulcard image is pretty intense!!

    1. It sure is. It reminds me of the painting "The Scream" from Munch

  3. That Soulcard image evokes a lot of feeling! I do much better taking the lid off now and then to see what's cooking, otherwise I will definitely boil over!

  4. Those 6 of Wands. In most depictions as those above seems to be about the 'haves and have nots.' That Soulcard feels looks like a egg sac. About to birth something maybe and it doesn't want to come forth or as it is it's screaming all the way..." i have changed my mind..."
