Daily Draw: Gateway Oracle Cards: Breaking Barriers/ Druid Craft Tarot Deck, Queen of Cups
This card is about breaking through self imposed barriers. The guidebook advises 'don't let fear or even reason prevent you from over coming barriers'. My thoughts went to a situation in my work life from which I've withdrawn so much I'm almost in Narnia. I will need to (and friends have urged me to) reassert my right to go to work and get on with work peacefully. Yet I don't relish the reaction that is likely to provoke.
Over the past couple of days I have been preoccupied with creating a more harmonious home especially through the use of water. Wondering if this is a distraction or diversion I sought clarity in the Druid Craft (my go to deck when I want immediate guidance). I drew the Queen of Cups which speaks to me of healing and nurturing indicating that creating a serene space is necessary not just nice. Truly accepting that might be my barrier...
Perhaps as I enlarge the peace in my home I will achieve a shift in perspective so the significance of the snake and the bug diminish just as they are small in this card.
Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.
