This queen has very good posture. She sits upright in her throne with angel and butterfly carvings. Her cloak is blue with puffs of white clouds and her crown is of golden butterflies. Angels are messengers of divine wisdom and butterflies catalogue the metamorphosis of inspirational growth. She holds a sword upright in her right hand and extends her left hand in a gesture of grace. Judgement and mercy melded in her pronouncements. She is just in her assessment of our efforts and encourages us to use our thoughts wisely. Be fair, honest, good and true in all our endeavors and we will fly like the bird up above.
At this time we are all reviewing our year, recounting our wins and losses, considering what to let go in order to make way for what we summon in. It’s a lot like going through the closets of our mind and spirit to make room for the new thoughts, inspirations. I decided to pull a card from the beautiful Wild Unknown Tarot deck by Kim Krans in answer to my question, “What do I need to know to help me in the process of letting go?” The Two of Pentacles came into view to shed insight and light on my question. We see a black and white butterfly–always the symbol of metamorphosis– and two pentacles entwined by a colorful infinity sign. This is the card of change and balance, having to do with worldly possessions. However, more to the point, whether our attachments are of the material worldly kind or emotional and spiritual, it is important to realize that life is ever-changing and ups and down come and go. As we change so do others; therefore the most economical way to handle these fluctuations is to keep light on the feet and resist the primal urge of attachment. Are there relationships, patterns of behavior, objects, anything at all, in your life that no longer serve your higher purpose? Take inventory, bless those you decide to shed and bless the incoming.
