Are We Living In The ‘End Times’? What does the Tarot say?

The 10 of Cups suggests that we are at least at some major hiatus point, both spiritually and emotionally. Reset may be too strong a word, and resets can be good or bad… I pray it is a ‘good’ one, naturally. The word Apocalypse, despite its dire reputation, literally means revelation, showing the truth – and don’t we need that?

The 8 of Swords in the background suggests to me that there is some major achievement in the realms of the mind and media which we are just not getting – yet. As to the nature of this, I am not sure, but it may involve new forms of communication which can be trusted and be more stable for humanity as a whole. This card, for me, represents the second decanate of Gemini, ruled by Venus, hinting at a generally positive development which can aid and secure all our interactions.

The Magician in the outcome position indicates that our future can be self-determined and that we can make a positive fresh start, perhaps even literally manifest heaven upon this earth, in time. We, as individuals, neighbourhoods, regions and nations, will have the ability to manifest what we need through our will power, to make changes in our lives, so long as we have the right motivation to do good for the whole, as well as for ourselves and our families. Well, let’s make it so.

Bible Thoughts: Psalm 19

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork.”

Psalm 19 KJV

Having been fascinated by astrology and astronomy all my life and doing charts for over 30 years, this psalm has come to mean much more to me as the years go by.

We have lost our sense of wonder, have taken too much for granted. A sense of hopelessness has grown, and especially over the last twelve months.

I look at the sky and all of nature differently these days; it is truly wondrous. We are not all lost and lonely souls. We are sacred beings in a sacred creation.

Verse of the Day

“For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;”

Job 28, verse 24

Today I opened the bible randomly and pointed at this verse.

What does this verse suggest about the nature of our universe? These words and many others like this, were once truly believed.

Considering the state of our ‘civilisation’, is our supposed enlightenment benefitting us?
