Sorry for the delay. I was preoccupied with a family emergency this weekend. For this week, I’m reading from my new Wild Wood Tarot deck by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, with card illustrations by Will Worthington. It’s a beautiful and interesting deck to work with.
Reversed 5 of Vessels (Ecstasy): Upon meditation into the meaning of this reversed card, I’m sensing many of you are feeling like your sense of joy or ecstasy is blocked. Maybe there’s been a disappointment or betrayal and you’re having trouble moving on. I feel many of you may be stuck in the previous card, 4 of Vessels (Boredom). This boredom, or sickness of the soul, is causing lethargy and laziness, locking you in a cycle of wasted energy. Perhaps you’re feeling trapped by your routine. Do not allow yourself to become emotionally frozen or disconnected. You will create a ‘black hole’ of despair. You hold the key, even if it doesn’t seem that way. Challenges should not be feared. Opportunities should be seized. There are sources of inspiration all around you waiting for the taking. That brings us back to the 5 of Vessels. How can you feel joy and ecstasy again? There are many avenues available to commune intimately with great beauty or to become intoxicated by an intensely personal connection with the divine. Music, meditation, art, love, dancing, or a profound sexual experience can all elevate us to a transcendental experience with the Divine, causing us feelings of ecstasy. Allow yourself to go there.
Similar to the blog I posted yesterday, what will make you want to get out of bed in the morning? What are you passionate about? As 2014 ends, allow yourself to let go of things that may have happened over the year causing you pain. If you need to hold on, then keep moving forward. Keep searching for that which will heal you. Or you can decide to bring in the new year with a renewed sense of energy by bathing in the cosmic life source. Connect with the Divine. You will find your answers there.
Love & Light
