It's Tuesday, July 7th - which is a (7+7+2+0+2+0=18=1+8=9) 9 day, numerologically.
There are a number of things that want to be brought to close...
I usually like to have a fire to symbolically let everything go. Today was a small one!
And since I created a moment of space/time for this ritual of letting go, I also got my cards out.
There were three that got stuck in the box (no accidents!) Since it seemed clear to me that these were the ones to focus on, I did.
They literally fell out in this order...
Can you see why I love these cards??
I usually don't even bother with the definitions in the book - to me, the meaning is so clear:
Free your mind; be willing to wake up and think outside the box. Balance nourishment for mind and body. Stay peaceful.
Honor transformation without fearing it.
The Devil's Reign is over.
And just in case I was not clear on the theme of change, upheaval, and transformation, the construction began in front of the barn!
Certainly, this is keeping with Gate 53, too: Beginnings, Transition and Change.
When my colleagues arrived, we moved down to the garden for our final review session.
I used to joke that all teenagers needed a sign across their foreheads stating "Under Construction." Brain studies show that myelination isn't completed until they hit ~20+ years of age.
Today, I felt that way, myself!
My brain is under construction, my emotions are shifting, my road is being repaved - major transformation is happening. What will things look like in a week? A month? A year?
As Jose Silva would say: Every day, in every way - better and better!
