I must admit that I struggled to write this post today. I am used to seeing at least one card with a challenging aspect and was surprised when I pulled these amazingly positive cards. None of these cards are challenging. The energies here are beautiful, supportive, and just what we have been wishing for, for such a long time. We have finally come through 'the ring of fire' as it were and are now being rewarded for all of the challenges and struggles we have endured.
Poised (48) and Serendipity (18) -
The image on the Poised card is so beautiful! If you look at it long enough you can almost feel the joy radiating off the figure floating above the pedestal. The banner hanging above her and the stars surrounding her are evidence of a celebration. A celebration that a long and arduous journey has ended and a new cycle is now beginning. The lessons we have acquired on our journey have prepared us well. Make no mistake you are ready for this new chapter. The number 48 on this card reduces to the number 12 (A number that I find especially important since I am born on the 12th!) and holds the energies of both the numbers 1 and 2. Number 1 is all about new beginnings and achievement and number 2 is about trust and your divine life purpose. Combined the number 12 speaks of higher wisdom and knowledge and the cycling into a higher consciousness. We are here now and ready to take flight.
The image of the shamrock (oxalis) in the Serendipity card represents joy, happiness, and good luck. The figure in the card is floating from, and being pulled by that symbol of good luck. Don't be surprised if unexpected miracles show up now in your life right when you need them the most. Whether it is a person that helps you, or a material gift that is delivered to you, or healing of some sort that finally manifests. You have worked very hard and the universe wants to show you that you are in alignment with your purpose. This is your reward!
Go The Distance (47) and Treasure Island (9)
We have gone the distance and then some. We are now arriving at the fabled treasure island! This is not to say that we can now rest on our laurels indefinitely, but we can enjoy this miraculous moment for now. The number 47 on the Go The Distance card breaks down to 11, a master number, most closely associated with the Archangel Metatron. Metatron is the keeper of the Akashic records and therefore a guiding light to us on our personal life path. The number 11 speaks about spiritual enlightenment and the visual symbolism is that of a doorway or portal. This doorway which you have so clearly chosen to go through has led you to your 'treasure island'.
The imagery on the Treasure Island card is mirroring the stars of celebration on the Poised card, mixed with the swirl of hearts around our box of treasure we know we have truly come into a time of wonder and happiness. Our treasure box is planted firmly and safely on the back of the sea turtle and held above the turbulence of the open water. Our treasure has been waiting for our discovery for a long time, but finally thanks to our endurance and hard work that treasure is now available to us. This card pairs beautifully with the Serendipity card for it has the same message. A miracle you have been waiting for is about to manifest in the most beautiful and unexpected way. It is coming!
