The Symmetry of Union

             We could take yesterday’s opening statement and apply it to our message for right now.  It would be entirely appropriate.  Because again/anew, we have seemingly opposing forces combining for cohesion.

             It’s like a theme, but not really.  Once again though, we need to look slightly further down, dig a tiny bit deeper.  See with our lovingkindness eyes.

Independently Together

             Within a marriage, there are (generally) two individuals who work as a couple.  Within a family, there are some number of individuals who work together as a blended group.

             We have a Team of loved ones, saints, angels, guides, and other helpers who combine forces for our highest good.  Each of these examples begins with a single being.

             But even the groups are still unique combinations of individuals.  That’s what we’re being reminded of.  To see (and honour) that original sacred self, and how each of us is able to keep our integrity, even as we blend with others.

             We need never lose our distinct and specific person-ness, no matter how firmly and snug the fit of our various groupings.

             On our card altar, within the regular rotation, we have a similar duo.  To stay empowered, and self-strong, we don’t have to give up any of our own-ness, even when we play and mix and come-together.

“Playfulness  ~  Page of Fire  ~  Mastery of Action

When the Page of Fire enters your life, it is a sign that you are ready for the fresh and the new.  Something wonderful is just on the horizon, and you have just the right quality of playful innocence and clarity to welcome it with open arms.

The Lovers  (r)  ~  Major Arcana”

             In this case, we are being reminded, by the Challenge of an upside-down draw, that we never need to give up ourselves in order to be with others.

             We are not only perfectly complete on our own, but we can be perfectly complete as we become part of a pair, or a family, or a mixed tribe of any blending style.

             Our key components are, to be fun and definitive.

One thought on “The Symmetry of Union

  1. Interesting set of parallel thoughts and cards. You can’t be there for anyone else unless you’re squared away yourself. Kinda like putting your own oxygen mask on first before helping others.
