Tarot #19: Worry, the fear of change and loss


It is so easy to let the little day to day worries pile up in your thoughts, nagging paranoid thoughts about work or the future that drape over your spirit like heavy curtains blocking the sun. It is time to throw back the gathering gloom by peeling back the piled on nuisances replacing these with the thousand tiny graces that come unnoticed until we look for them in the corners and hidden under the gathering cob webs and dust. Yep! it’s time for a little mind clearing and window polishing to let the light shine in and out.

You may be brooding over a loss of status or security or material wealth, have some looming potential loss on the horizon that is in a wait and see situation. The best thing you can do is figure out what is meaningful to fight for and focus on any positive ideas that come into view that can help shift the outcome or at least shift your mood to a lighter place. Something will come to pass and that will pass as well. There is only one moment transforming into another. From the moment we fall into this world, the only certain thing is change all else is illusion. Even well planned or so called certain destinations are subject to last minute adjustments, postponements and detours.


“The pain of change is a necessary element in regaining your aliveness.”

From Tarot by Margarete Petersen

The time has arrived for a thorough self-examination with love and care to what should be shed, that which is excess or unnecessary and not integral to the spirit, and what is to be cherished and brought into the light as a sign of the spirit carried forth.

Maybe your worries are like noisy moths making giant shadows on your walls, all sound and flurry signifying nothing in the end.

To live in this world

you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it
to let it go.

~ Mary Oliver
