No Two Ways About Change

Daily Draw: Ancient Egyptian Tarot ~ Death

The one thing that wasn't addressed in last week's recommendations to 'get the lead out' is the elephant in the room that no one mentions because most of us don't like change. I do, but inertia is a constant companion .

I'm reminded by this card to change something in our life we don't like we need to stop the habits that created it in the first place. Something old has to die so something new can be formed. We are certainly able to do so, we seem to manage what we want to do every day, common-sense insists we can also set in motion the progress we need for the life we do want. Because what is life and death but a series of transitions? We can just let it happen or we can take command.

"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another." ~ Anatole France 1844-1924

The Ancient Egyptian Tarot is in use this week, deck and 152 page companion book first published by Thorsons in 1994. Clive Barrett is artist and author, and the set can still be ordered directly from him at his Green Man website.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
