There’s a saying in tarot and card circles that what card you choose, it’s always the right one… the synchronicity of the Universe supposedly aligns you with whatever the most perfect card you need to see. When I pulled a little angel card for myself today, it really made me laughed and proved there’s something to that idea! I’ve been thinking a lot over the last couple of days about how October is “Communication” month! I’ve written some posts on my FB page about it, and I’m focusing my writing on topics of personal communication and connection. (Such as an article I wrote on what happens when communication seems TOTALLY off-the rails and fights or arguments abound) — so this card was quite a chuckle when I saw it.
Yes… as the forces of miscommunication and miscues fade away, the whole theme of this month is communication! The first thing that resonated with me about “communication” and this card in particular was the image of the little angels talking on the phone (corded phones! since is a very old deck) and I thought about how in my great grandparents’ day the telephone was a new-fangled device that suddenly made a very big world (in which it was harder to share ideas widely) into a tiny world where people could be reached with the ease of a box on the wall. Today’s “box on the wall” is media. The computer, the art of film, the news. Broadcasting is the new instrument to make the world come together.
Or is it? Think about how you’re broadcasting your message. We touched on this a few weeks ago, but in “communicating” there’s more to think of than just how you’re communicating with family, friends, and dates. Communication is about broadcasting who you are to a larger world. This week we can think of this and consider the messages we’re sharing with our small world (people nearby) and wider world.
And no, this is not about everyone broadcasting on the internet and having a podcast. This is more about how we are SHARING our gift, thoughts, talents, compassion, and essence. It’s about how you carry yourself, what you do, where you spend your time. You are a channel that is “on” and if you’re out in the world, online or not, people are getting information and input from you. What are you putting into the pipeline this week? Will it be uplifting, informative, artistic, funny, angry, sad? There’s a role for all the things you have to express and ways to express it all if you look for them this week.
This is a great reminder for those who are moving up their career ladder, or who are looking for a partner (for work or romance). Those who connect to our wavelength have to have something to go on. Dusting off the energetic “microphone” and finding things to express yourself can only help you find the dates, mates, and clientele that match you and can form a great community for you to live and thrive in.
Back in the old days, it was hard for long-haired cat owners, knitting enthusiasts, and cloud painters to find each other. Today it’s a lot easier. Let the “COMM” in COMMUNITY be your communication guide this week! **ps – if you’re communing, it’s more likely that your own little “angels” will ring you and give you messages 😉 (intuition, heart, dreams)
