Summary: If you have been feeling the pain of heartbreak, isolation or loneliness, this week’s message is for you: it is time to start that delicate journey of moving on. You have felt and acknowledged the pain, now you must begin processing it. What have you learnt about yourself? What greater wisdom can be gleaned from the situation? How can you best heal and move forward? Start doing the work to escape this dark place you have found yourself in.
Together these cards tell a beautiful story of the beginnings of recovery, and in each we see a radiant sun in the background. Our Dreamer Three has her back turned to it, still mourning the broken pieces of her heart, while her hair beckons dark and poisonous clouds that threaten to block out the light. In the next image we see a clear sky, the Dancer readies herself to take that first difficult step, to strive for more and live in colour once again; reaching for that mountain, onwards and upwards towards the regenerative light of the sun. Now that she knows what she must do, the Hermit is ready to guide the way. He points to a hill, high up, beckoning her beyond tumultuous waters to a place illuminated by a burning sun; a place of lessons learned, of wisdom and acceptance.
This week it is time to step out of that pool of festering emotions, of a life lived wallowing in shades of grey. The Hermit invites you on a journey, seek his guidance through meditation, find the centre where his wisdom resides and practice some ritual of release. A difficult climb awaits you, and you may not be able to feel the sun’s rays yet, but the path is before you. Start small, but start now, and if the weather allows, take a minute to bask in the light of the sun. Imagine its rays melting through your skin and filling that hole with its pure, brilliant, life-giving light.
