45th President of the United States

I was wondering what kind of President the 45th would be.  last year I posted during the primaries Presidents – Incumbent and Future on the candidates personalities – now with the change of power in a year of Change and Karma,2017 – The Year Ahead how will the 45th POTUS shape up?

INDUNA4+5=9 The Hermit CONCEPT: Completion; Introspection; Divine inspiration; Wise old man; Teacher; Advisor; Humanitarian.  Essentially this card represents the archetype of the wise old man and ‘the light bearer’  …  Trumps personal card is 4 The Emperor so he is right where he should be and 5 The Hierophant is a card of ruling power and family.  It brings learning and teaching through institutions.

The first 100 days will show what kind of leader and how much positive change will the new administration bring.  How many traditions will be upheld and which will be rebelled against.  4 The Emperor is all about the animus (masculine energy) and leadership with wisdom.  The hope is that the responsibility of power is taken seriously, that choices and decisions are made intellectually as opposed to emotional.

iTongo Legend: Induna (plural: izinduna) is a Zulu title meaning advisor, great leader, ambassador, headman, or commander of a group of warriors. It can also mean spokesperson or mediator as the izinduna often acted as a link between the people and the king. The title was reserved for senior officials appointed by the king or chief, and was awarded to individuals held in high esteem for their qualities of leadership, bravery, or service to the community.

iTongo Tarot CardThe 45th card in iTongo Tarot is 9 Wands – keyword – Fortitude.  Displaying courage in the face of adversity.  Risk assessment with caution. Endurance – holding fast and firm and having the courage of convictions. He is going have to be quick and light to hold his own against enemies.  It may take some time to explore options and alternatives to find the appropriate disciplines that align with his inherent ideals. By nature he will protect himself and his family first, the invitation is that ‘family’ is seen as the whole USA.

iTongo Legend: Nine of iSibane (Fire) Chief Rharhabe (1722 –1787) was the Right-Hand son of the House of Phalo. Rharhabe is recognised as one of the great warriors, who bravely conquered the Khoi, San and the first clans of the independent Tshawe houses of Ntinde, Hleke, Gwali, Mdange, and Amagqunukhwebe.




Live in the Light

The iTongo Tarot card for this week is 19 The Sun – uBuntu

19 The Sun - uBuntuCONCEPT Collaboration; Teamwork; Partnership; Personal potential; Illumination; Rebirth, Universal consciousness; Adjustment; Success; Gratitude

Ubuntu is the African concept of ‘humanity towards others’. It is the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity. It is about having compassion towards other human beings, helping them physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.

Sharing Grace and showing gratitude for what you DO have is the spirit of uBuntu. To achieve harmony,  respect in all aspects is fundamental.  Respect human life, no matter the circumstance or situation.  What you do, affects others, so be mindful this week of generosity, kindness and compassion.

Aspire to a higher awareness

The other important aspect of this card is the archetype of the child. The Child is the Guardian of Innocence.   Spend some time healing your inner child, mature to your intellectual age.  We set our dreams, hopes, ambitions around the age of puberty.  We accept that our intellect (IQ) needs to be developed and we go to school, we learn something new everyday, yet we seem to ignore our emotional selves (EQ).  We EXPECT that the emotions will just follow our intellect, that’s why we have problems adjusting and certainly in relationships.  When one has an intellect of 35 year old with an emotional maturity of an 11 year old … no wonder there are problems.

Ask yourself what your EQ is, make conscious changes and mature the child within.  That doesn’t mean that we have to give up the wonder, joy and excitement in our world, it just means that reactions and responses should be age appropriate.

Its almost mid winter and I see a fair amount of posts on Facebook to help those less fortunate. Take notice of the invisible people – they may be many things, but one thing we do know is they are cold.  Take blankets, jerseys, anything warm to your local church or distribution centre or even drive around. Go through your cupboard and fridge, make some soup and share it.

Ubuntu invites you to practice humanity towards others.  So this week aspire to a higher awareness, play and be joyful, more importantly be kind and compassionate to others.  Live in the light.
