5-22-18 Today’s Tarot is Key 5 Tradition. The way it has always been done is not necessarily the best way to do it, it’s just the way we are used to doing it. There are other ways, maybe even better ways. This card is about dogmatic principles and cultural norms.
The Five of Earth shows a woman sitting in front of a stone monument. She is obviously grieving. A white feather floats down from the sky behind her. She sits on a stone bench, wearing all black. The sky is gray and the grass and bushes are only partially green. We are often blinded by grief. Our lives are subject to loss. We lose people, jobs, relationships, animal friends, homes, favorite possessions, and on and on. A period of grief is healing and necessary but often we have difficulty letting go because we remain focused on what we have lost. The imposing stone monument is cold, hard, and unchanging. She has her back to the feather which represents the promise of hope, lightness, and freedom. We will never regain what we’ve lost but there is a new beginning if we reach out for it. Black is a symbol of her grief. The gray sky is limitation and the partially green grass, stagnated growth.
