Tarot Card: Ace of Cups - down and dirty, this is an emotional gift from above.
Rune: Wyn - A respite from chaos and an interlude of harmony; the rune of joy
Wow, some days things just come together. This morning, as I was finishing breakfast and watching the news, one of the animals running through the living room drew my attention to a brilliant beam of sunlight shining through the dust kicked up by the pets being rambunctious. Usually, I would take this as a sign to get off my butt to vacuum and dust, but today, the motes were catching the sunlight and refracting it, causing a million (yup, I counted them) tiny rainbows to dance in the room. The morning had gone well enough I could stop and enjoy this spectacle for a few minutes, marveling at the gift of beauty I was given.
Fast forward a couple of hours and I am in the Attic, doing my usual physical opening routine of lights, heat, coffee etc and the metaphysical opening of calling allies, lighting candles, burning sage and drawing the above portents. I have been seeing rainbows everywhere, all day, mostly metaphorically, but a few physical one. In the sunlight on Luna's fur, in the light coming in our south-facing front windows, even in the reflections from the cars passing on Indian River Rd.
Rainbows are everywhere today, reminding me to dance like motes of dust in a sunbeam, to enjoy the attention of loved ones, both two- and four-legged, to embrace the miracle of today and every day.
I surely hope this blog is not regularly this sappy, but I have to write what I am led to write, so this post is what it is.
