THE HIGH PRIESTESS

Don’t rush into things. Feel, first. Feel deep. Don’t give in to the temptation to act on autopilot or with the knee-jerk reaction of habitual patterning. Instead, take the time to descend towards the wisdom that is kept by the High Priestess. She reflects life back to us, and precisely in the depth and stillness of this reflection, we find our own knowing.

From that point on, we can then proceed to act. The things we do, have the power of JUNIPER: the invigorating desire to step up and show up, the taste and concentration of something powerful that took its time to be distilled.

what if I just welded
myself into place

and all but disappeared from view
like a fungus on a log gently decaying

what if I blended into the background
feeding myself with time
and with that which is inevitably transformed
by my presence and my appetite
