CoronArchetypes: An archetypal discussion about WTF is going on.

March 22, 2020

Cyndera & Julienne discuss the the Corona Virus pandemic through the lens of the archetypal stories of the tarot.  Keeping in mind that we drew The Strength card as our focus for 2020, we pull in a few more that we see in evidence during this crisis and discuss how this archetypal view can guide and possibly bring something new to the world during the darkest time.   

Tarot Cards / archetypal stories discussed are:  STRENGTH, HANGED MAN, HERMIT, TOWER, DEATH-REBIRTH

We are careful in our discussion to honor what unfolds with compassion (and especially self compassion) and not castigate people for not approaching the hardships with a purely spiritual view.  All of our capacities are needed at this time even if it means standing in the closet and screaming obscenities to re-set ourselves for the road ahead. 

We also discuss ways to use time away from regular routines to re-connect with friends, spend time in nature, bring life to new projects and observe the process of creativity as fomented by BEING (Yin/Feminine) and then brought to life by DOING (Yang/Masculine).
