The Opportunity: 0 The Seeker

You have the opportunity to start a new journey, with a beginner’s mind. Is it time to hit the road, either metaphorically or literally? Every time you set out on a journey, even if it’s only a one-day hike, you embark on a spiritual journey as well. Be open to all the twists and curves in the road ahead. Be ready for wonderful surprises. Be open-hearted, innocent, trusting and spontaneous. Take a risk! Before you is a brand new adventure — the chance for a fresh start and endless possibilities

The Challenge: 13 Death

You are being challenged to accept the fact that something in your life is dying and something else is nearing its time to be born. Take the time that you need to grieve for that which is dying, whether it is a cherished dream, a relationship or a belief system. Don’t rush the process or deny all your turbulent feelings. Death isn’t pretty; it hurts. It’s painful. Whatever dies, is dead, and it will never return again in the same form. But just as the Dark Moon gives way to the New, and Winter gives way to Spring, Rebirth will surely follow Death. When you are ready to let go of grief, you will find yourself emptied out and clean, and ready for the next stage of your journey.

The Resolution: 4 The Builder

Resolution comes with making decisions through intellectual reasoning, rather than your emotions or intuition. You may ask yourself: “What am I building? Are the foundations of my life based on strong structures? Are my boundaries clear and well tended?” You are ready to take responsibility for a project where you have authority over others, and where your leadership skills can shine. What kind of a leader are you? Do you lead by example or by dominating? Are you secure enough in your own abilities that you can share power with others? Do you take into account the longterm consequences of the decisions that you make? You may also exemplify the Good Father who loves, guides and protects his children — and gives them the security of clear boundaries by disciplining them when necessary.

Well, that says it all, doesn’t it.
