Today's card of the day is brought to you by the Sun Moon Tarot and is the Universe.
This is the last card of the Major Arcana...the turning of the hoop, a birthing, the end and the beginning. The transition to a new cycle. Let's look closer.
This card is linked to success, prosperity, wholeness and completion. On the card we see the God Shiva, the creator and the destroyer. The best way I can explain this process is giving birth. At one moment you are pregnant, as you go through the birth process you become less pregnant and more a parent, the cycle is seamless, and often sudden. We are in the process of becoming parents. Parents of new businesses, new ventures, new ideas, new situations. Shiva is both the creator and the destroyer both. Shiva also embodies both man and woman in harmony, denoting balance in all things.
The mudra (hand position) of Shiva is called the hasta mudra which promises protection, the circle of fire around Shiva denotes the unlimited energy available to you; the energy of the universe. In Shiva's hands are represented the four directions and four elements (balance). Shiva stands on the dwarf of ignorance, which represents the undeveloped self which may be holding us up. Shiva stands on this dwarf to represent our dominion over ignorance and the assurance of growth with enlightenment. An auspicious card today. Allow the birthing process to proceed, fear can stop the birth process, breath and confidence speed it along. ~Mamma Moon
