“Love is metaphysical gravity.” R. Buckminster Fuller

Today’s Tarot is the Page of Cups (Earth in Water) and the reversed Nine of Swords (Moon in Gemini).  Opening your heart lessens the feelings of being under siege. It doesn’t erase it completely, but sure makes it much easier to weather. It’s like you’ve now got a little protection, right there for the taking.

Connect, connect, connect! Be honest and truthful, speaking from the heart. Acknowledge your feelings to someone you care about. It’s much less lonely that way. This is something I’ve had to work on, over the years. My natural inclination under stress is to withdraw, and that doesn’t always serve me very well. So I work on it, you know? And yeah, I find it helpful. Shared perils are less overwhelming. And sometimes, you will find in the sharing, you get EXACTLY what you needed.

Do you tend to reach out when under siege?

    Gosh, no, actually I don’t. I definitely go underwater when threatened until I can figure out what is going on. I’ll detail it all out in public when I do figure it out. But, in the midst of it, I’m hidden.

    To your point, though, often when I re-emerge I already have everything cemented within myself. I don’t come out until I feel like I’m standing on something solid. I’m learning that receiving input from others before I reach that cemented place is helpful. I forget sometimes there are people out there that may have experience with what’s going on and their input could be helpful. Not to mention the fact that sometimes an outside perspective can shed light on things you didn’t think of on your own. Verbally detailing to someone else about how you feel–just hearing yourself SAY it outloud–also brings a fresh perspective.

    There’s a balance to made there.

    Yes, but once I’ve taken a little time to let myself feel what I feel.
