The Shadow Effect of our last Mercury Retrograde phase should be gone by now. And yet, I’m dealing with communication and computer issues still. Bastard! Whatever, we have other, relatively, good news to report. Or at least, moderately interesting.
Dan and I went out on the bikes today. Rode for just under 11 miles. Nothing massive this time. But that’s when the planetary road-blocks started to appear. (Emmy also had some challenges, but she handled them like a very responsible and competent adult. We’re immensely proud.)
When we got home, with the new sprayer (replacement for broken one, which he was inside purchasing while I stood outside, took the above picture, and texted with some of my off-spring) there was water play in the hot yard. HIGHLY entertaining!
Max is SO funny with the hose. Just sitting out there watching him helped everyone’s mood. A. Lot.
But then, so did our daily draw. This message is like if the Universe reached across and validated our parking stub. Stamp!
The World ~ 21
It’s the same Major Arcana equivalent as yesterday’s last one. VERY big deal. Also, it was the final card in that rotation. When we come back around to this deck, we start over, anew. So, it’s even MORE significant than if it just popped up in the middle or in a series.
What I usually think of when this card appears is in two-parts. The first is all about coming to the end of a cycle, or phase. Or, as the Osho Zen says: Completion.
The other message has to do with The World at our feet, getting exactly what we have worked so damn hard to accomplish. We’ve arrived, in other words. Assured success is another defining way of putting it.
The numbers add down to 3, which is very stable, but not permanent. As all life/death phases are, this one is temporary, but that’s the point. We know this now. As something comes to an end, another something begins. It’s just how the world is. And in our world, we can HAVE The World. At least, for a while.
