Stability, more.

             Right.  Yeah.  Well, so.  Here’s a thing that’s never happened before.  (And every time I say that, I think, “what else might come up that never has?”)

             We are so VERY entrenched in this double Mercury retrograde phase that the cards aren’t even moving now.  Literally.

             I won’t say we’re stuck, because we aren’t.  We simply aren’t going anywhere at this time.  Because last night I was visited by our Emperor from yesterday.  He’ll be joining us for one more post.

             (Possibly he could leave tomorrow.  But, who am I to know that?  I’m merely the radio, sharing with you what is shared with me .)

             This planetary situation is well and truly a representation of how to appreciate exactly where we are now.  Not what’s gone by, not what’s ahead, but right here and right now.

             Our message is slightly different though, even if our daily draw remains the same.

Steady

             We know there’s a sound and comforting foundation beneath us.  But we also need to be aware of the fact that when we are in this stationary stage, we are encouraged to use what is at hand.

             We can still create, we just have to be more thoughtful about our materials and their origins.  Think of it like MacGyver-ing.  There’s nothing else to use, so we may as well set to work making do with the stock we have in front of us.

The Emperor ~ 4
Again.

             Do you see how his feet are resting lightly on the Earth?  It’s like today he’s saying, “here, you have all you need, reach down and appreciate it.”

             There is a certain security when we know that this is it.  We don’t need to keep peering around for what’s next.  Because right now, there IS nothing else.

             To build and to craft with limited resources takes skill and ingenuity.  Which, since he’s still here, he’s saying we obviously have.

            For me, it’s an ecological choice, too.  The more we don’t purchase, the more we are showing with our actions how we care for our home.  Ourselves.  And our loved ones.

A lovely spot to sit, with gratitude.

             If I can’t BE at the coast every single day, at least we can look at it.

  1. *Robin sitting and shaking head* I am stunned and embarrassed to say this, but I will anyway. I’ll throw it out there and then, hopefully, sweep it away. Starting over is always allowed, right? *head desk* I have been so caught up in this past year’s and current crap that, as usual, I started -not- doing things for me. Again. As usual. This is definitely a pattern that needs to be stomped to death.

    I started to tell you about my having had cards show up twice in a row (I have and I find it interesting), when I realized I couldn’t remember the last time I did anything with my cards. It couldn’t have been that long ago, just a couple of months, right? I had to get up and check my notebook. OMG, it’s been over a year! A YEAR! Talk about not being present! (Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow…)

    To me, the same card back to back felt like a reminder to look back and make sure I had paid attention the first time. This time, here, however, it’s been a bit more like a 2 x 4 to the head. Actually, today, I’m feeling a bit more like a house landed on me. O-M-G!!! So, thank-you again, lovely Julie. Needed this today again! (O-M-G!!! A FUCKING -YEAR-!!!)
