12/10/11: Cycle of Motherhood | Empress, Page of Coins Rev, Death

“A man is great by deeds, not by birth.” Chanakya


Once you’ve started it, you don’t have say how it’s finished. This is both bane and relief of mothers everywhere. Literal and metaphorical mothers included.

Today’s Tarot is The Empress (Venus), the reversed Page of Coins (Earth in Earth), and Death (Scorpio).  Birth, development and death. These cards read almost like a poem.

Once you’ve given birth, the choices in exactly how and what your offspring grows into are not yours to make. Whatever’s not workable dies off. The process can hurt—okay, let’s be honest—it will hurt. But it alters at a very deep level and in doing so, allows a fresh, new life to grow. That’s almost the definition of giving birth, don’t you think?

Are you finding the cycle of birth and death at play for you?

  1. Only Death.

  2. Are you finding the cycle of birth and death at play for you?

    Funny how this cycle plays..echoes rather…continuous and likened to dreaming within a dream within a dream. Connect, nurture, grow, let go..reconnect, nurture, grow, let go

  3. Thanks to CancerMom for the heads up – had the time mis-set on this one. Can I still blame Merc Rx?!? Happy Saturday!
