10 of Blooms & the Tower
Yesterday, I was raging. Today, I am ecstatic.
Turbulent times make for tumultuous emotions. There are many reasons to grieve, to be angry, to be excited, to be joyful, to be heartbroken, to be and feel any damn emotion right now. We are waking the fuck up and that is exciting. We are FINALLY being forced to take an honest look at the corruption, racism, sexism, and xenophobia this country has always been famous for. It’s terrifying to face and atrocious to watch as the current administration wields the crimes of this country like they are justified policies. It’s disheartening that it had to come down to such devastating extremes (and we have yet to see how far these extremes will go) for us to make change, for us to come together, but it is the way of the universe sometimes and it is the way of the tower.
I can think of no other card that would describe what we are seeing in the US better than the tower. This country was built on a fucked up foundation and Trump (and the people behind and around him) is our lightning bolt of truth. Through these times of uncertainty, remember that this was probably necessary (that doesn’t mean that I think it is in anyway okay or normal or anything other than devastating and terrifying).
We are here now friends. And through solidarity, creativity, resistance, and collective action I believe we are going to use this fight to make the world a better place. An actual better place, for the planet and all people (well maybe not the rich white assholes). This is the age of information. This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius! Let’s fix ourselves now. Let’s be a part of human evolution in the direction of love and harmony, not greed. Look at that lotus, look at that rainbow in the 10 of cups. We will rise through the muck, we will come to the light. We will respect, love, and support diversity and harmony.
It is what most of us want.
Today, I just know it. I feel it in my bones. Have faith. Have heart.
It is better to suffer and sacrifice in the fight for justice, than to turn your back on the suffering injustice has created. I think we know that. And that makes me happy.
