New Age

Daily Draw: New Earth Tarot ~ 8 of Cups

Harmony and balance are being restored, rather than the standard slump-shouldered caped figure leaving the scene. The author/artist indicate this deck was created for the new age. 'New Age' is often a term said with sneering derision.

I'm reminded by this card of the people and movements I've encountered with a new age mindset. The people who embraced hippydom, with their let the world burn man mindset. Of the Peace Corp mindset who thought they were saving the world, one small country at a time.
What these groups birthed was today's green movement. Divided by the same two groups of the 70's. Stop progress at all costs, and let the earth burn man.

  1. Left or right, back or forth, this way or that, the constant of ebb and flow of the 'two sides.'

  2. Some believe that if we rid the earth form its human infestation all will be well agian. Maybe we are the aphids of this planet?

  3. I notice a lot that got fielded under the banner of new age/alternative like recycling, hummus, wholewheat bread and even tarot pretty much mainstream now.

  4. I first embraced wholeheartedly the New Age movement, then looked at it from a cold, rational point of view and left it behind. But somewhere in between is a bit of logic mixed with a bit of compassion - that's the part I need to hang on to.

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