Today was cold! Makes me shiver just thinking about it. The sky was clear blue until this evening when the clouds started rolling in. Hopefully it will snow.
Today’s card is Seeker of Flames from the Sirian Starseed Tarot by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha. The image on the card is that of a woman before the statute of a male diety holding a flame in his palm.
This image just doesn’t do it for me. A seeker of flame, the spirit, the eternal spark within represented by a woman who appears to be begging for knowledge. No, I am the living archetype of the Seeker of Flame. I look within, not without. A more appropriate image would we a woman ensconced in the violet flame of healing and spiritual knowledge. A flame bursting forth from her own heart.
Cori and Bartha say, “While there is spiritual immaturity in this essence, it (The Seeker) carries a sense of childlike wonder and an innocence that is very disarming.” The image conjured in these words is contrary to that on the card. The Seeker begging another, the male, for answers. Do we still have to be subjected to these archetypes? I expect more from my “Ascension” tools.
Lindy Cowling said it best, “Ascension is descension into the heart.” The Seeker descends from the ego-centred mind to reside in the compassionate ever giving heart. My way out of my head and back to my heart is meditation.
