Today I received the “Two of Wands” under “The Tower”. Just before getting “The Tower” I received this card on 8/11 which was my wife’s birthday. It was also the day that Jupiter goes direct in Sagittarius as well as Uranus going retrograde. Right now, there is a serious need for looking out on our future and what we need to do to get there. “The Tower” is a card I’ve been getting lately and it tells me to “be careful” as well as that “the mighty have fallen”. The mighty may be in the external world but in a very real and more important way it is the ego inside of me.
Basically, “keep your eyes on the ball” and “don’t block yourself”. It is amazing to realize just how much we sabotage ourselves out of fear. Often we never even get a chance to start because we have convinced ourselves that it is “too hard” or impossible.
In the past, I often thought that if I started to be happy, I would die. Like me having a happy life was somehow fatal. Now, I understand what I thought was not from me but was, in a very big way, put into me by my family. There are many, many people across the world who are ‘trapped’ in their ‘local’. I should write more on ‘localization’ but it is basically having a narrow view. The “Two of Wands” is about the “bigger view” that may remove you from the stuck position you may think you are in.
There is a great secret: Every maze is navigable no matter how complicated or “impossible” it may seem through a single method. Touch one hand to the wall and follow the wall all the way without stopping. Then you will find the exit (or the entrance) without even having to think about it. Heck you could do it with your eyes closed! That is the secret of the left/right hand paths.
Om Namah Shivaya!
