Osho Zen Tarot Card of the Week – “Change”

Osho Zen Tarot Card of the Week – “Change”

“Change” is the Osho Zen Tarot Card of the week for September 15-21, 2014

ChangeCommentary on the Card:  The symbol in this card is an enormous wheel representing time, fate, karma. Galaxies spin around this constantly moving circle, and the twelve signs of the zodiac appear on its circumference.

Just inside the circumference are the eight trigrams of the I Ching, and even closer to the center are the four directions, each illuminated by the energy of lightning.

The spinning triangle is at this moment pointed upward, toward the divine, and the Chinese symbol of yin and yang, male and female, creative and receptive, lies at the center.

It has often been said that the only unchanging thing in the world is change itself. Life is continuously changing, evolving, dying and being reborn. All opposites play a part in this vast circular pattern.

If you cling to the edge of the wheel you can get dizzy! Move toward the center of the cyclone and relax, knowing that this too will pass.

Wheel of LifeMeaning of the Card:  Life repeats itself mindlessly–unless you become mindful, it will go on repeating like a wheel. That’s why Buddhists call it the wheel of life and death–the wheel of time.

It moves like a wheel: birth is followed by death, death is followed by birth; love is followed by hate, hate is followed by love; success is followed by failure, failure is followed by success. Just see! If you can watch just for a few days, you will see a pattern emerging, a wheel pattern.

One day, a fine morning, you are feeling so good and so happy, and another day you are so dull, so dead that you start thinking of committing suicide.

And just the other day you were so full of life, so blissful that you were feeling thankful to God that you were in a mood of deep gratefulness, and today there is great complaint and you don’t see the point why one should go on living…. And it goes on and on, but you don’t see the pattern. Once you see the pattern, you can get out of it.

backgroundWow!  This card really spoke to me.  My normal, even-keeled self, has been feeling pretty emotional the past few days . . . Euphoric and grateful one day; sad and disconnected the next.

The seasons are changing, our earth is changing, and it’s no wonder those of us who are sensitive have emotions which reflect that.  As the saying goes, “As without, so within.”

In this time of change it is important to be gentle with ourselves, and make sure to take time for centering and self care.  If you’re needing some extra support, a counseling and/or Reiki session may really help, and I would be delighted to assist you.
