For today I've drawn the Two of Wands from the Robin Wood Tarot. Normally this card speaks to us about being in control, successful and inspired to make a next move. It is also about patience and insight; knowing when to act and what to do next. He is pleased with what he has accomplished but he wants more. The roses and the lily’s on his robe tell us that his desires are pure. So all in all this is a positive card.
Yet this morning I saw this two of wands in a whole different light. There is this man behind thick stone walls; in his castle he has built himself, with all the goods he has gained from his successful enterprises. And there he is, watching his globe and being stuck in his little world. This globe made me think of the World Wide Web. Almost everybody our there has access to the world in his own living room: TV, internet, smartphones and so on. Sometimes I wonder, if we would be more out there in the real world, without the digital one at our disposal at any time.
My own world has become (by circumstances) a small one and I am ever so glad with the opportunity to broaden my view on life with the internet. It has given me so much more than I ever could have imagined ten years ago. But still there is something nagging. I know I have to accept the things I cannot change but I also want to be brave enough to look critical at what can be changed.
