21 The Universe – The visual on this card is The Southern Cross. This constellation is used in celestial navigation to find due South, and I like to think that the energy of The Universe guides us and always points us in the right direction.
We talk a lot about the universe and universal energy, this great amorphous place, Divine something or energy that is available to us, but what does it all mean? How do we connect or begin to understand the vastness of the subject?
When I look at this card I am reminded that we are all one and part of the Universal mind and force. Every thought, action and emotion is the souls unity with others. We are perfect in our manifestation, we just have to look around and know that our external world reflects our inner world – that in itself is validation.
Each and every one of us has unlimited potential, we are all natural explorers and adventurers and we should be visionary in what we hope to achieve in this life time. We need to rise above our circumstances and make something of the hand we have been dealt. Good fortune should always be shared and pay it forward, in kindness, generosity of spirit and being emotionally available to those in need.
In context with our Card of the year being 7 The Chariot, this week we are able to see the bigger picture. To instinctively see what needs to be rebuilt or designed in new ways, whether it be environments, ideas, projects or people. We will have a natural ability to renew and regenerate ourselves and others. Quite a creative and innovative week – be an original.
Don’t hold back. This is also a good time to become more aware the world around you – become more ecologically minded and be active in making the universe a better place. You may find yourself asking those questions about the origins of the universe as a whole or contributing towards theories, projects and services that assist universal understanding. Value cultural differences as well as honour inherent similarities found within all of us.
When we are connected to the universal energy we reach a state of unity, a sense of wholeness which liberates our spirit. What we need to do is learn to understand the timing of things. There are times when we birth and grow and there are times when we need to lie fallow and regroup, building towards a new beginning where we can realise ourselves and the Divine nature of everything.
There are times when we feel that we are drowning in life – the obstacles and hardships we experience either make us or break us. We owe it to ourselves to not lose hope, to not give up on the dream, vision or goal.
You may experience several clear and important spiritual insights this week. Each time we do the work required we experience a shift in consciousness. Keep a notebook handy and record these. Find like-minded people to discuss your point of view, even online. We are all on a spiritual journey and your insights may be valuable to someone else.
When the self has reached a true state of unity with Universal energy we experience a wholeness. I am that I am – a liberated Soul. The end is a new beginning. Yin and Yang merged in one whole.
This week is the opportunity to use your inherent moral compass, cut through things and get to the bottom of situations. Build a new internal world, which in turn will be reflected externally.
Value the contribution you are making that makes the world a better place in which to live. Explore the unknown and bring those creative ideas and projects into reality.
