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.
Things are a bit topsy turvy right now with all that’s going on in your life. It’s a bit much to keep up with, quite frankly, so rather than letting some potentially important balls drop, why not “chillax”, scale back, maybe ask a friend to help out. (Nannies have to make a living too, you know.) There’s nothing wrong with admitting you’ve bitten off more than you can chew. Prioritize what’s most important and make a list from 1-10. Then set about accomplishing them and checking them off one by one. It might take a bit longer, but you’ll feel so much better and rest easier. Balance is everything.
