The Potential For Beauty

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Okami Tarot - The TowerToday’s draw is the Tower card, which is traditionally a representation of sudden, chaotic change. The appearance of the Tower card indicates the need to tear down established structures so that something new can take its place.

In the imagery of the Tower in this deck, I very much see that “rebuilding” potential, for as the volcano explodes in the background, destroying the island in the process, it sends seeds and spoors into the air to be carried by the wind, giving the life that once lived on the island a chance to rebuild in fertile soil elsewhere.

Like most people, I struggle with this type of change. It’s not so much the change itself as it is the fact that it is sudden and chaotic.  There’s no chance to prepare.  You just have to hold on for the ride and let it play itself out, then pick up the pieces after.

The beauty in this card reminds me that that chaos is not the end. There are better things to come if I’m willing to let them grow from the ashes and do the work to rebuild in the aftermath.

What comes after could be beautiful.

Mr Lionhart’s #TheJuneTarot Spark of Magic Prompt
Questions for June 22nd thru 24th

Okami TarotHow can I best embody the manifestation of my Solstice intentions?

Five of Glaives (Swords) – Fight for them. Anything worth having is worth working for.

How am I asked to nurture, or tend to, my flame in support my Solstice plans?

Seven of Rosaries (Coins) – Be understanding with the fact that things take time. Immediate gratification may be satisfying, but those things that you work towards overtime and accomplish are worth a great deal more.

What should I keep in mind, or what can I do, if my flame grows weaker, or when my path meets resistance?

The Emperor – Seize control and stay focused. Claim your goals as yours and direct your resources towards them regardless. Be stubborn.

Where, or in what area, am I guided (by Lilith) to be (more) assertive or to be (more) independent?

Nine of Brushes (Wands) – Boundaries are extremely important. They give your life structure and create structure and a sense of stability for others in your life. Make sure that you are clear in the boundaries you set not just for others, but for yourself as well.
