We all know today’s card.  And we all know today’s message.  It’s kind of a Little Engine That Could story.

             It’s absolutely about our own inner strength.  And how even when we have burdens and hardships and difficulties (and, like the illustration, missing parts),  we CAN get up and get going.

Gently Forward

             We have a core of power that we sometimes don’t realize is there.  Or, we don’t realize it until we truly need to use it.

             Our strength is limitless, it comes from Source; we can draw on it in times of need and in times of plenty.  We only have to decide, “now” and it will be there.  We are so very much stronger than we give ourselves credit for.

             Today the Universe is reminding us to keep going, keep walking, keep calling on that inner strength.  Never be like the other figure, never cower in fear or let the ego rule.

             We are being reminded that we CAN take care of, not only ourselves, but our loved ones, too.  We do have that power!  We ARE that strong

             However, we are also being reminded that we don’t need to just shove our way along.  We don’t need to run or push hard.  The most basic and simple steps are called for.  Just gently go forward.  No rush, we have all the time we need.

             Additionally, it helps to remember that we’re not doing this alone.  We have support.  We have back-up.  We have protection and assistance.  Always.

             As we head in to the new week and the new month and the new season, it’ll be a good idea to keep in mind how well we’re doing.  And how much we’ve already accomplished.  Travel forward and travel gently, my friends.

“Our whole spiritual transformation

brings us to the point where we realize that in our own being, 

we are enough.”

             We are ALWAYS enough.  And sometimes, if we seem to be TOO MUCH?  Well.   Isn’t that also just how it is.

  1. Sometimes things just present themselves strangely. I left your page up while I continued on with my bike articles and kept looking back at it. It is a good message today, but I couldn’t stop looking at the 5 of Pentacles. I finally just stopped and sat with it, so to speak, and realized I couldn’t picture the 5 of Pentacles on any of my decks. NONE of them. Even with my eyes closed. It was shocking. I’m normally very good with seeing pictures in my head. But what I did see was me shuffling decks. And feeling peaceful. Guess Someone is telling me to get my ass back to my Tarot. Yes, I’ve been away for a -very- long time. Maybe some day I’ll actually learn and fight to keep what I know is good for me instead of neglecting myself while I battle the crap.

  2. Hi Ya’s…My Miss Steps keeps popping up and I thought of you. Hope all is well.
    Good message.

  3. I do love it when this card shows up. It’s like saying “hi” to an old friend!

    It brings a good message today as well, and a reminder that going gently forward while accepting assistance is a pretty darn good way to travel.

    I, too, hope things are going well for you.

  4. Added commentary:

    our fab pal Corina has taught me something today. If you click on a photo here, not only does it enlarge nicely, but you’re able to leave a remark now, as if it were a separate page.
    Great to learn new shit, thanks!

    1. If only I’d known that was what it was going to do, lol! Had no clue, was just as new to me as it was to you, and, ever so slightly annoying, to be perfectly honest!
