TEN of CUPS
Ponder this ...
• How flexible are my closest relationships (especially the more intimate kind) when it comes to new experiences ?
• What do I need to get out in the open with a partner ?
• In what ways am I itching to make a bold declaration, indicate interest, or otherwise spark up interactions ?
• How can I act on my heart's callings or desires rather than just more thinking and imagining and wishing ?
Real intimacy is a sacred experience. ~ John O'Donohue
Intimacy, Connection, That Which Makes Our Heart Sing, Joy overflowing … these are what we are seeking, craving, needing, desiring, wishing for quite dramatically and with every fibre of our being for the next month.
There is a need to let relationship partners off the hook from being or seeking all things from one person or one relationship. Let’s make an effort to (re)connect with our friends, our tribe, our community, our peeps, to come back into flow and relationship with them at deeper levels.
Some relationships and partnerships may not be able to withstand this need for greater connection, may not understand a desire for greater freedom to interact and be with others … surfacing deep seated issues that create too much pressure and expectation on a relationship or partner. And if these are not able to be sorted through, given a release valve, and there is a lack of openness and willingness to stretch and expand the relationship, to allow for greater freedom and experimentation in order to shake up the status quo that has grown stagnant and stale, then some relationships and partnerships are likely to dissolve during this time.
We need to discover or reconnect with the throb, the beat, the rhythm of our own heart’s desires, joy and happiness. And then, once we’ve done that (and not before by losing ourselves to the beat and rhythm of one or more others), we want to seek out those who are in sync, in harmony, in the flow of our own heart’s throb.
We need to be softer and more receptive now, remaining true to ourselves while honouring the rights of others to have their own agendas.
Openness and experimentation are key to growth, connection and deeper intimacy.
Don’t hold back the heart now. Express freely. And don’t limit or restrict how others need and want to express themselves right now.
Be gentle … allow yourself and others the freedom to express and be who they are, who they need to be, in whatever form that may take. It may be temporary, it may be forever. A momentary intermingling at the heart level that acknowledges, honours and elevates all involved will have profound effects on everyone.
