When we talk about opportunity, we’re really talking about our own forward momentum. We know that we’re traveling along this path, but do we ever know where the fuck we’re going?
I mean, sometimes we catch a glimpse, and it’s inspiring as hell. But then, the clouds come in, the sky lowers, and we’re fumbling down that pot-holed, shitty flooded street again.
Then we have to rest. Sit on the curb, or duck into a protected doorway if the rains arrive. While we wait out this latest storm, new ideas pop up. Brilliant thoughts of our possible future.
All The Options!
Sure, we could follow up on many of them. But will we? Do we have the stamina to take All The Chances? Or, should we lean here, holding our umbrella, and wait for another chance?
Inspiration is everywhere. And it’s much less flashy than we imagine. Mostly, it’s in the reality of where we are now. In the simple views out the kitchen window. In the bus driver’s smile, or the friend’s comforting hug.
Let’s look at where our daily draw is taking us, in connection to this message. There’s always hope and there’s always a choice. And weather, not always an option, but always a factor.
(Also, one person’s dream destination is another individual’s living hell, just sayin’.)
“Dry Desert ~ 31 ~
‘Dig deep for inspiration and truth.
Now is the time to become resilient and adaptable.’
Is your life presenting you with opportunities that seem to yield nothing? Have your ideas dried up? Does it feel like you’re on an endless journey through a dry, hot, lifeless desert?
This card reminds you that there are times when you are meant to become resilient as you journey through harsher circumstances. You’re being required to conserve your energy – until, after consistent effort, you reach the oasis you are searching for.
Consider the creatures that live in these conditions: they have adapted to thrive in spite of the outer environment. In a desert, water – essential for life – can be found deep underground.
Go deep within yourself now . . . find your truth there. Let Spirit sustain you while you locate the real Source. Whatever it is that you are asking about will not be found in the conditions you are in until you move past the surface of things and choose to do the real work and discover the answers deep within you.
This may not seem like the productive time, but looks are deceiving. This is a most important place to find what’s truly right for you.
The subject of your inquiry is barren and can’t give you anything right now. No matter how beautiful and seductive the shimmering glow of a mirage, this is the illusion.
When the Dry Desert card is reversed, it is a warning not to be hypnotized into thinking you will achieve your desire. This well is empty.
Consider the gift here, though . . . know that while this is not the right place, person, or circumstance for you at this moment, it means that something better, more fulfilling, and life sustaining is coming.
Celebrate the warning and be grateful.”
