“Tomorrow is tomorrow.
Future cares have future cures,
And we must mind today.”
― Sophocles, Antigone
Last week we made way for the New Year by laying some groundwork and taking responsibility. The latter keyword is something that I want to focus on–Responsibility, which, yes, can be about growing up and making sure all the bills are paid and you have clothes on your back. However, let us focus on breaking apart the word in another way. Responsibility is more about your ability to respond to life.
At the start of the week, it’ll be like any other Monday, with most of us wanting to stay in bed. For some of us, the start of the week reminds us of other time in our lives, where we felt like we lacked the ability to respond to or be present in our own lives.
The High Priestess focuses on you with a hand placed on her crystal ball; there are also a number of choices set before you this week, which she outlines with the cards placed around the crystal ball. This action to me represents the outlook of letting the fog take shape around you, to not worry about being immersed in it.
Remember what fogs does. It comes rolling in thick and haunting, and it layers everything with a smoky white. Lights take on a new kind of alien life, but you can still see the glowing, guiding beacons there. It’s a surreal sight. Yet, you need to remember that you can only see so far in front of you; sometimes, that’s something we sorely needed to be reminded of… because it keeps us focused in the present.
The High Priestess also follows the Fool card, from last week. She is balance. She takes the knowledge from the Fool’s experience forward. She is not so innocent in the ways of the world, yet she still advises you to trust your inner knowledge while being observant of what’s around you. Be present. Be present. Be present. This is what she seems to be saying.
Listen to her, or I have a feeling you’re going to miss out on something this week. Don’t take anything for granted.
