This week, I feel there’s a lot of dodging to be done, some hurdles to jump and basically, sharp pointy things to avoid.
Life I think, is an obstacle course. Only, it’s not a straight line, you don’t know what obstacles are coming or what you’re supposed to do with them. Keep a bean bag on your head? My five-year old can do that. Jump like a kangaroo for 10 meters? Yep, he won that race, because they’d practised and he knew what to do.
Life isn’t a rehearsal, it’s not something you can practice, like the sack race. We have to do the best we can at the time, hope we’ve dodged the necessary arrows and bullets. This feeling of flying through the air, for me, shows up in this card.
The goat is dodging the arrows, somehow. Either the archer isn’t very good, or the goat just has an advantage of moving fast! He could also be restless, unable to sit still and stick out a project. Or avoid a few crocodile pits and get the job done.
The questions this coming week, are varied.
What do you wish to avoid? What Do you need to avoid? Whom do you need to avoid? What situations require that you actually just jump over them and not engage? What will you be setting your sights on? I ask that, because that goat is focused on getting to the other side, jumping to safety. He’s not just jumping through the air for fun: or is he? Those arrows declare that he’s not, but this goat might be an adrenaline junkie! (How mad is that thought??)
I’ve got all the adrenaline I need, dodging the life my self-made minions throw at me! I love them all dearly, don’t get me wrong, but the amount of arrows they can throw at me!! Sheesh, I do feel like I’m jumping through hoops, or dancing over arrows that are aimed at tripping up mum! Perhaps I ought to turn them around? Hmm… interesting thoughts!
