I was doing a phone reading for a client / friend this afternoon, when she mentioned how many different groups of guys she works with, and asked the question – ‘what’s up with guys these days’? Which she followed up with ‘they don’t have a clue’.
Yesterday in dream group, which is 3 men and 2 women, the same question was in the air, as the other woman has just started a Masters in Fine Arts program, and has found her dreams, images, paintings are just turning her life upside down.
In dream group, I shared an insight I had received many years ago – that to be healthy, a woman in this culture is at some point going to hate men for their cruelty, violence, arrogance, dominance over the last 8,000 years. All that anger may be for 5 seconds, or 5 minutes or 5 years. Feeling it, accepting it, moving with and through it is critical to becoming a self-actualized and self-loving female in this place and time.
On the phone with my client / friend, we pulled some Tarot cards to get an answer from the Universe, from the Daughters of the Moon deck. That statement might be seen as a little harsh, but also as true: Cerridwen upside down – most / many men still don’t see women; Ixchel – the major truth now is that women do not need men – that men need women; three of blades upside down, men do not want to change, to learn about their inner lives. What men can learn from women: ten of wands – collaboration; Temperance – sharing ideas, synthesizing new truths from mixing all the ideas in the group.
Simple and profound – Thanks, Universe!
