Give thought to gravity. This is an attractive force. It is what keeps us grounded. It pulls us in and keeps us in place. Gravity is cosmic force. It is generated in the outer worlds and has a significant effect on us in this world. Without gravity, wouldn’t wee live in chaos? Gaze at the sky for symbols of gravity. There is the sun. Gaze at the sky at night and you will see the moon and the stars. Look at the ground. Are your feet not rooted firmly on it in this world?These are archetypes of gravity, and they are all archetypes of tarot.
The sun, the moon, the star, and the world are each profound cards that represent how gravity effects our life in one way or another. Each is unique, and each is powerful.
The sun card
We orbit the sun. It is what provides us with our gravity, keeping us rooted to the earth. It shines. But does it shine enough for us? Does it shine too much? What is exact perfection you as far as the sun is concerned? When it is just right, we feel as happy as the child in the Rider Waite rendition of the sun card.
The moon most certainly has an effect on our gravity, and in so doing has a profound effect on us each in one way or another. The moon at different times creates different feelings and physical effects on us. Look at the moon in the sky. It’s always slightly different night by night and even day by day. It is mysterious. It is mystical. It cyclical. Have you noticed how the moon effects you? Try to pay attention to this. You may find it quite interesting.
Just as the sun creates the gravity that we gravitate around, the star represents the gravity that you yourself create. What is it about you that attracts people? Why are you naturally drawn to certain people over other people? This is charisma. This is your talent. This is your “it factor.” This is your attractive force.
Take a look at your feet on the ground. Be glad for where you are, for you are right where you need to be. You may have walked many miles to the destination you have reached. You may have encountered many hardships to reach this destination, and you may have many highs on the way as well. Whatever it took to get you there, you are there and that is good. The world card represents your ultimate destination and the accomplishment of your goals. Without gravity, you would have long ago drifted away. Without gravity, you never would have made it. Remember, we are each on the earth for a reason. Appreciate that fact as you go about your daily routines and pursue your pursuits.
