You know, when I went to read my Oracle Cards this morning, I didn’t really realize just how perfect it would apply for all of 2020. The card I pulled was Shakti reversed, and the explanation for what that meant was this: “Sometimes people and situations come into your life as the kind of change agents that turn your life upside down.”
It was supported by Lilith reversed as the Shadow Card (the one on the bottom of the deck, you know, the one you subconsciously put down at the bottom because you are trying to hide it from yourself).

It’s strange if you really think about it. Time doesn’t exactly exist. I mean, most animals don’t recognize a watch or clock, and definitely not a calendar, but anyone who has pets knows that they can become very aware of the time if you feed them at exactly the same time every day. Even though they can’t read a clock, they can sense that it’s dinner time, and they’ll let you know about it if you “forget!” Continue reading The Time for Beginnings→
