Trump and The Wheel of Fortune

trump and the wheel of fortune
Tarot of Quotes
Life is like Star Wars: First there is A New Hope (back in 2008), then last week The Empire Strikes Back, but hopefully in four years time we can welcome The Return of the Jedi.

Sometimes the dark side wins. We have to face that. Life never runs smoothly.

If you are upset about the result of the US presidential election, then I don't want to make it look better than it is by saying It's going to be okay, because it probably won't.

The global year card for 2017 is the Wheel of Fortune, which coincides with Trump's inauguration. Our luck will change, for better or for worse, and it's likely to be a rough ride ahead.

If you feel disillusioned, give yourself time to let it pass, and then get to work to ensure that the Jedi will return. Because that's the way the Wheel of Fortune works.

We get thrown into the deep end, but it's up to us how we get out of it. The way to do it is not to resign to fate but take positive action.

Here are some ideas:

1. Reassure those people around you, who are afraid of how they might be affected by the new leadership. Let them know you stand by them and will speak up for them.

Give them a hug. Make sure they feel supported. Keep in mind you are powerful, because you are part of the majority, who voted for the other side. You are not alone.

2. Don't let anyone tell you to "get over it" and stop expressing your thoughts. You have the right to voice your opinion whenever you like as we live in a free democracy. The opposition won't shut up about it, and neither should you.

3. Take regular breaks from news and social media. You don't need to read or listen to all that shit hitting the fan right now. Most of it is speculation anyway, so it's a waste of time worrying about it now.

4. Whatever you do, don't lose hope. Remember, the Wheel of Fortune keeps turning. Nothing ever stays the same, and you can be part of influencing the change process. Your input can make a difference even on a small scale.

When the result was announced in Europe on the 9th November, it was a poignant moment, because on the same day 27 years ago, the Berlin Wall came down.

Equally poignant, the same day was also the 78th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the night in Germany when Jewish shops and synagogues were burnt and Jewish citizens murdered.

The Wheel of Fortune keeps turning. Today you may feel like you stand in its shadow, but by not giving up you will rise up into the sun once again.

It will take time and effort, but hey, let's do it.

Warmest wishes,

Christiane

Stagnation - Why Waiting Can Be Good For You

Cosmic Journaling Oracle
“What we are waiting for is not as important as what happens to us while we are waiting. Trust the process.” 
- Mandy Hale

Stagnation - who wants to be stuck in limbo?

Waiting for a new job to come up (especially when you are unemployed)

Waiting for new love to come into your life (when you begin to feel that you have been single for too long)

Waiting for a house sale to go through

Waiting for someone to get in touch with you

Waiting in the queue... anything that stops you from getting on with life, and it's all a little outside your control.

There is only so much you can do to influence your situation, and sometimes you will just have to sit it out until some movement takes place.

It is easy to get impatient, when the time of waiting seems to drag on forever, but instead of thinking that life is passing you by, you can accept stagnation as a gift.

Stagnation doesn't mean that nothing is happening. While you are enduring a long waiting phase, tiny shifts are happening, internally and externally without you realising.

Even while you are stuck in a long checkout queue, you can simply pause and take some deep breaths before you continue being busy again.

In the Tarot, stagnation is linked to the Hanged Man, the card before Death. Death signifies an ending, the transition into a new phase resulting from the Hanged Man's surrender to the natural ebb and flow of life.

The meaning of Stagnation in the Cosmic Journaling Oracle

Stagnation in the Cosmic Journaling Oracle may ask you to embrace a waiting phase as a gift. You have time to consider your options, discover new opportunities, enjoy the calm before the storm.

Stagnation may also suggest delays, lack of progress, your patience will be tested, self-restriction, rigidity, or the process of sowing, waiting and reaping.

Perhaps you have fallen into the trap of waiting for the future to come -

waiting for the weekend,
waiting for summer,
waiting to be happy again one day...

In this case, Stagnation reminds you to focus on the present and make the most of the here and now.

Questions to ask:

What area in your life are you currently waiting for something, and what is it you are actually waiting for?

What can you do to be more relaxed about it and even enjoy this period of stagnation?

Look back into your past and remind yourself of times, when you had to wait for something. How did you deal with it, and what happened in the end?

“Standing on a street corner waiting for no one is power.” - Gregory Corso
