Four of Cups + Temperance, Golden Age of Hollywood + Osho Zen

18.03.2021

Themes: "A veto (Latin for "I forbid") is the power to unilaterally stop an official action" + "presence in the now"

Zen - "it's both something we are-our true nature expressing itself moment by moment-and something we do-a disciplined practice through which we can realize the joy of being. It is not a belief system to which one converts. There is no dogma or doctrine. Zen is the direct experience of what we might call ultimate reality, or the absolute, yet it is not separate from the ordinary, the relative. This direct experience is our birthright." (zenstudies

CARDS:
Golden Age of Hollywood Tarot: Four of Cups (R)
"I Want to be Let Alone"
"The girl said no"
Osho Zen Tarot: XIV Integration ('Temperance')
"The image of the integration is the unio mystica, the fusion of opposites. This is a time of communication between the previously experienced dualities in life. Rather than night opposing day, dark suppressing light, they work together to create a unified whole, turning endlessly into the other"
"two minds becoming one, the meeting of yin and yang, the meeting of left and right, the meeting of logic and illogic"

***

Reversed C4 "Retreat, withdrawal, checking in for alignment"
"You are retreating into your own inner world so you can concentrate on what is integral to you and what grounds you."
"You may use this time of introspection to check in with your inner self to make sure your upcoming projects and endeavours are a good fit."
