Quarantine and sheltering in place; a.k.a., “staying the f**ck home”, has brought up a lot of things for a lot of people and I wanted to address some of them here in the coming weeks. I’m going to start with the issue of community and our connections… namely who we currently are and are not in contact with.
Community and Connections pros and cons:
Pro: Not being able to go out and not being able to see each other – combined with the threat and the fear surrounding the actual virus – has led to an onslaught of text messages, phone calls, people from times long past emerging to reach out to us, and daily communications with people who we might not ordinarily have spoken to for many months. This is a bonus and is community and connection positive because it has brought new people into our lives, increased the regularity of our contact with those we already had, and perhaps too prompted some apologies and some making up.
Con: But, simultaneously, it has also led to others distancing and detaching themselves in order to process and deal with and medicate things in their own more solitary, isolated way, and thus, in turn, has caused many uncomfortable and challenging emotions for those left on the outside with an absence of a person-sized hole to deal with.
Con: There is also the issue of polarisation and the awareness of the strong and very different points of view that everybody suddenly seems to have, most likely you too, which may have led to conflict and separation and perhaps even fallings out.
With this in mind, I have recorded a reading to address this subject.
What’s going on with ………….. (insert name of person) right now that is causing us to be disconnected?
How can I reach out and connect with ………….. (insert name of person) in a way that will strengthen/heal our bond and relationship?
The Knight of Wands shows us that this person (who we care about and miss, or who we feel separate from) is on a mission and is absorbed by their cause. They are on fire with enthusiasm and energy for it and everything that it represents and stands for and are therefore of a single mind and distracted from everything else in their life. It is not personal. It is not about us. It is simply that their calling has arrived and nothing else beyond it can be heard. This means that past relationships may be subject to neglect for a time as they find their way to and along their new path.
The Seven of Wands reveals a battle, unevenly pitted. It is you and one or two others against the remaining four or five. In this battle you are undecided, one foot in each camp. To deepen your connection with this person or to heal what feels injured somehow, you must first pick a side and then be prepared to stand up for what you have chosen to believe in and, if necessary, fight.
If you would like to know more about what is going on right now and would also like to hear more about my thoughts… I discuss the things that are coming up for me and how I am attempting to mother, manage, navigate and clear them in my own life on my YouTube channel in a section called A Little Light.
There are also lots of tarot card readings covering the pandemic, as well as love, relationships, career, health and life, etc.

Thank you for reading and have a beautiful day. x
