Daily Tarot Reflection – 31 Jan 2018 – 9 of Keys Reversed

(Image from the Bird Queen Designs Tarot Deck)

This morning, the Earth will begin to cast a shadow over the moon. This will cover an area of our lives in which the moon takes place (Leo) in order to reveal something else, to make something obvious. As the moon is shadowed, this bird is shadowed. As both are shadowed, we are shadowed. And yet, when this card is reversed, it represents a release of the shadow. A Lunar Eclipse, too, wants to help you release a shadow. You have to see it, of course, in order to release it. It’s like dye used to illuminate vascular blockages. You must see it to locate it accurately and remove it. Shadows can look so many ways, but in conjunction with this card, I wonder what you’re releasing today that has to do with fear. Maybe it’s something you’ve always feared. Given that it’s in Leo, I wonder if there’s something very personal that you’ve attached to your identity and you need to let it go in order to pursue your destiny. It’s ok. You can let it go. Even if you end up feeling and appearing naked, you will be so beautiful standing in your freedom and power. You can walk away. You can fly away. You can negotiate your way out of the thing that leaves you cowering—even if it’s you. You can get out of it – whatever it is that you need to get out of. Only you know. This isn’t the end. It’s the beginning. Stand up. Speak. Express what you need to say. Maybe what you need to say is mostly to yourself. You can forgive yourself. You can forgive someone else. You can be forgiven for anything for which you are truly sorry. Don’t carry around burdens. Lay them down—even if you have to go through some pain to be able to do so, even if you need help from the outside world. Repentance, redemption, exoneration—they’re not about being good or being perceived as good/better than you were. They’re about finding freedom in your spirit and freedom for the world. Today, you’re allowed to walk away from your fear—it’s being released. And so are you. Ache 🙏🏼
