Blessed is the gift of renewal and rebirth,
I will welcome and cherish it…
As you can see from this bead (really, a charm, I guess), and the previous one for letting go, they seem to go together. At least that is how I feel about it. Like the Death card of the Tarot, the rebirth cannot come without the ending of something.
This is especially appropriate for this time, as we enter the last, darkest days before Winter Solstice (up here in the Northern Hemisphere, of course).
I have been learning a lot this year about letting go and cherishing what is new and not yet known. I’ve been working my way through my Tarot Death card year, and it has been a doozie!
Early in the year, I had made some conscious choices about using that energy to make some big shifts in my business priorities. So I had some clearing and releasing to do, to make room for the unknown newness.
Of course, I knew that things were bound to change on other levels as well.
But the Goddess had some very unexpected (and, honestly, not very pleasant) surprises for me that eventually detonated deep in my magical practice. A big letting go, and, as yet, only the faintest beginnings of discovering what will be reborn there. But I affirm that I will welcome and cherish it.
Like in all birthing, I am learning about patience and trust. Push. Wait. Open. Breathe and breathe.
Then, of course, there was last month’s computer meltdown. (I am still catching up on lost emails, so if you had expected to hear from me regarding something or another and you still haven’t, please try me again).
So what are you letting go of at this time? What renewal and rebirth do you anticipate? Are they perhaps related in some way?
What will you be welcoming and cherishing, even as you let go of what was familiar and comfortable?
Let’s do it together.
