21/11/18 - What are you waiting for?

21 November 2018

The ruins in today's card represent a prison of your own making, an illusion. You are free to get up, stand on your stool and climb over the crumbling wall at any time. Or you could reach through the gate and grab one of the crossed keys (symbolic of Heaven/St Peter) just outside the gate! There are options, but sitting around feeling trapped, sorry for yourself, or waiting to be rescued by someone else isn't going to work. 

Deck: The Akashic Tarot by Sharon Klingler and Sandra Taylor 
I can't help but look at the faces of the characters. The woman is so lost in her own thoughts she hardly realises her companion is there, sitting patiently. His clothing and posture makes me think of a holy man/monk, quietly sitting in prayer as he waits for her to engage with him. I'm sure he'd be willing to give her 'a leg up' or wise counsel if she would only engage with him. 


What does the dilapidated prison represent for you? What do you need to escape from and leave behind? The card is a reminder that those things are no longer viable - they have outlived their purpose. Outside of the walls, there is a lush green forest and a blue sky. What are you waiting for?
