Today the card is (or was, at this point) the Three of Mirrors (Cups) from Chrysalis Tarot. I wrote about it on my Facebook page, so do follow the link if you haven't read it. The point I want to make here is the synchronicity with my own experience. The Keyword I used in my posting is Celebration, and the Three of Mirrors indicates celebrating is in order today - either just for its own sake, or mostly because something good has come to pass. In my own life, the final step in the sale of my partner's house (after being on the market for way too long) was a definite cause to clap today. I couldn't have been more relieved and my sigh was audible. So, I took this card's advice to heart and consciously applied myself to enjoyment today - and then my partner and I celebrated at a nice restaurant this evening. But the point I want to make is how I celebrated earlier in the day.
My Thought of the Day in my FB posting was "What can I celebrate today?" I went out to another glorious morning here by the Bay in California and made a conscious effort at appreciation and joy. Not that it's so hard, but sometimes, no often, I rush through my day, pausing only a little to experience the beauty and glory abounding around me. Today I savored it. I took my time walking to the gym I work out in most mornings, feeling the warmth of the sun, the breeze, the scents in the air. I took my time throughout my workout instead of rushing through it so I can get out that much sooner, as I often do. I was consciously methodical, feeling my muscles, my body, being there. It was calmly enjoyable. I felt grounded, here, and happy to be so. This is a switch from my usual caffeine-fueled manic routine, all rush, rush, and rush. So I was celebrating. Celebrating being alive, in this beautiful place, on this beautiful day, just being.
The thing about the Three of Mirrors is it's not just about partying with friends and/or family to acknowledge some success or good fortune, though it can be that. It's also about partying with ourselves - that is, being happy with ourselves, in ourselves, in our own company. Loving and accepting and appreciating ourselves first and foremost, before we can offer that love to others. Being happy in our own company, with ourselves. If we don't have love for ourselves, then we really don't have love to give away to others either. So, the Three of Mirrors indicates it's time to enjoy and celebrate, but the real party starts right here, right now, within us. Go for it, I say~ get that party started! Celebrate everything, don't wait for a reason or excuse. Just do it! Life is short and there's so much to enjoy! Look around - it's all there waiting for us. And joy is most contagious!
