Look familiar? Last Friday I used this cloth and pulled the cheetah from the animal spirit deck, temperance and the 9 of wands from the spirit speak deck. Now we have the cheetah and temperance again, but this time with the 7 of swords and the motherpeace deck. Repetition is one powerful way the universe speaks to us.
As those in power continue to lie, to sneak around, trying to get away with atrocious policies, we will continue to move forward, pushing for balance and a well integrated democracy. By ‘well integrated’ I mean a democracy that stands for everyone’s rights. A democracy that is progressively intersectional.
This is the lesson of temperance as it can be applied to our government. I used to get lost in the idea that the balance this card called for was between democrats and republicans, but no. It is balance in the voices of the few and the many. It’s an intersectional outlook and a fair distribution of power, not a corporate coup full of billionaires and payed politicians to put corporate interests over the people.
I and the cheetah want to remind everyone to stay connected to your purpose. When you feel the darkness weighing upon you, remember that light comes from within you. Light comes from your passion, convictions, and moral compass. Light comes from fighting for justice. Light comes from banding together, answering the call to create a just and fair society in which our voices are heard and our planet is taken care of. For the good of all.
Sigh. I know it’s hard, I know it hurts. I know there will be days when you will simply feel defeated, deflated. And those are the times to think of the Cheetah and her unending light and strength. It comes from her heart, from keeping connected to why she is here. It comes from answering the call of your higher self.
Keep moving friends. Keep fighting. Stay grounded. Stay connected.
Gotta run, sorry for errors. #nodapl protest in Portland at noon, US Army Corps building.
