Our card this week is #18 ~ Nurturing from Oracle of Visions by Ciro Marchetti.
This image shows us a protective and nurturing embrace between mother and child. Their attire suggests involvement with the performing arts that will be passed down to the child as a mentor would teach an apprentice. They stand in front of a window filled with the yellow light of dawn indicating great potential and a bright future ahead.
Whether you are actively parenting a child, teaching a student, mentoring an apprentice or lovingly tending a project or pursuit, the message for this week focuses on the benefits of nurture.
You may feel up to the task and full of positive energy and brilliant ideas. If so, know that your excitement is contagious! Use this energy to uplift and inspire others. They may need just the boost your positive outlook provides.
If, on the other hand, you find yourself facing challenging circumstances, you will need a gentle approach this week. Nourish yourself and those in your care with kind words and patient expectations. This is the perfect time to retreat and rest awhile. Perhaps someone or something is singing an invitation in the words of the song Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol...
"If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?"
Sometimes the most nurturing thing you can do is be quietly present for awhile. The world will still be there when you return.
Our card also suggests a protective energy at work. Circumstances, projects and people all develop in the most beneficial ways when protection also includes enough room to experiment. If you are guarding against the possibility of failure to the exclusion of making an attempt, it may be time to bolster your courage and give it a go. It may all work out. If not, you will know more about what does not work which will lead you to what will.
