Summary: In what ways has your faith been tested? In what ways have you outgrown your inner structures of belief? The time has come to return some of those relics to the place where you found them, honed, polished, and sharpened through the journey you’ve taken them on. Others will be glad you did. Meanwhile, prepare for initiation, and relax about it. The best thing you can do to prepare for what lay ahead is to surrender. Ssh, listen… your heart has something to tell you.
Six of Swords (reversed) — The Hierophant — Queen of Cups (reversed)
FOUNDATION: Six of Swords (reversed)
Within the privacy of your mind, you’ve been able to sort through some fundamental things so you can make a move forward, as the times are requiring you to do. While you have prepared yourself well to move on into uncharted waters, your due diligence has revealed some things to you that you’re not so sure you want to bring along for the ride. Sometimes, leaving a belief at the foothills of faith is a healthy move, once the faith has been tested and found either to pass or fail in suiting the needs of personal evolvement. What have you recently discovered you’ve outgrown, in terms of articles of faith? What rituals of passage no longer apply to the landscape you’re entering? Lo and behold, you’ve come to the realization that you got it! One last foray back into the wilderness from whence you came, and you can return your library books. Give back those treasures you honed to sharp perfection in the machinery of your mind, so that those who prepare to take a similar journey are equipped with the tools that their evolved readiness requires for them. Take care of this before you move on. You’ll have something new to pin your faith on. Meanwhile, deliver the tools you needed back to where they can be picked up by the ones waiting for them. Clear your cache.
LODESTONE: The Hierophant
Mark the moment well. Take note of what’s happening. Great changes are afoot and you’re at the threshold of initiation. It might not be what you thought it would be, but it’s sure to be everything you need… if you have the faith. Lately, your faith has been tested, whether that’s been in your own mettle or in the structures upon which you rely. Those undercurrents of reality that never seem to change are indeed about to undergo a massive and definite shift. You might only notice the little changes; truly, the bigger shifts can be more difficult to pinpoint within a pattern accessible to personal application. However, something’s at the doorstep, and it’s finally ready to be noticed. When you realize what it is, you’ll be in awe. Descent of revelation is at hand. There is wisdom in surrendering, for in releasing rigid patterns of unbelief, you open and relax into receptivity. For what you’re about to receive, you may well indeed find yourself truly grateful. It is the underpinnings of a new patterning of faith’s fundamental physics.
MOST OMWARD DIRECTION: Queen of Cups (reversed)
When faith has been tested, when the past is let go, when you find yourself at the turning point of a new initiation, it is well to withdraw into the heart’s font of wisdom. Contemplation is going to beckon as the terrain once familiar reassimilates around a new fundamental frequency of understanding. At such a point, your mind is not going to be as helpful as your intuition will be. If you tend to let yourself be drawn by your feelings from one point of time to another, sit back and contemplate your motivations for being thus led. While you might not be able to navigate a new set of circumstances by pure mental calculations alone, couching your wits in a balanced sacred space of intuition’s design might be just what you need to get along. Get comfortable with the heart’s wisdom; get back in touch with the mechanism of self-trust. Feeling your way ahead will lead you well, if you spend some time getting to know yourself more deeply. Gaze inward without obstruction.
THIS WEEK’S CONTEMPLATION
“Love nibbles at the edges of man’s knowledge of divinity until love is all — and creation of love is all — that is seen and desired. At that point, love has rendered ‘no win’ to ‘free to do anything’ through a test of faith to dent your protective illusions of being special while everyone else is not. You are all special, and that becomes apparent when love has gotten past the creative rules and regulations your mind has set up by telling you, in some way, that you are loved. It is at that point that the game begins to shift.”
