vision, Padmé cries/scream, “Anakin, help me!”
What if she
wasn’t crying to the man she lost to darkness… What if she realized, at that moment,
she was living his vision? What if she screamed to him? Before his fall: To
send him a message to help her; to stop; to save their doomed lives; to protect
their children’s future; to prevent him from falling in darkness clutches or to
alter their heartbreaking ending.
Imagine Aelin and her court returning to Terrasen, battle-weary but victorious, Erawan and Maeve both destroyed.
Imagine them all entering Orynth on horseback, Aelin in the lead with Rowan and Aedion flanking her on either side while the rest trail behind them.
Imagine that as they ride through the city streets, the citizens turn to see who is approaching and stop dead in their tracks.
Imagine Aelin watching them all as she passes, not knowing whether they fear her for her power or hate her for abandoning them for all those years while she killed and reveled in their enemy’s kingdom.
Imagine her fear and dread turning to awe as one by one the citizens of Orynth form a crowd behind her court, following their horses as they approach the palace.
Imagine Aelin and her court reaching the palace gates. She dismounts her mare and slowly, so slowly, moves to step before the crowd, Rowan and Aedion still at her sides, Lysandra, Elide, Lorcan, Gavriel, and Fenrys behind them.
Imagine that she stands before her people in a city she’s seeing for the first time in ten years. A city no longer ravaged, but rebuilding. There is a pause as Aelin looks out among her people and her people stare back at their long-lost queen. Imagine Aelin holding her breath, waiting for them shout and jeer, condemn her as a traitor, surge for her and beat her until she is nothing but dust under their feet.
And imagine those citizens standing in the front of the crowd nearest to her sinking into low bows. And then the crowd ripples like a wave as they all move to kneel before her.
Imagine voices raising, calling out her name and chanting, “Long live the queen!” Narrok’s vision come true at last.
And imagine that as tears stream down Aelin’s face, Rowan takes his mate’s hand and squeezes gently, and never in her life has she ever been as happy as she is in this moment.
Never surrender your hopes and dreams to the fateful limitations others have placed on their own lives. The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets. Judge not by their words, but accept advice based on the evidence of actual results. Do not be surprised should you find a complete absence of anything mystical or miraculous in the manifested reality of those who are so eager to advise you. Friends and family who suffer the lack of abundance, joy, love, fulfillment and prosperity in their own lives really have no business imposing their self-limiting beliefs on your reality experience.
Aries wants to express the ego with vehemence, and create chaos when there is no stimulation. Libra wants to reduce this noise and activity to peace and harmony. Libra cannot create peace if Aries does not induce the war
Taurus binds onto the material as a form of energy and stability. Scorpio sinks their hands straight through this substance, realising that it is not reality, and the only truth is what cannot be seen into the infinite. The safety that Taurus seeks is with the embracing soul Scorpio can attain. Taurus wants to accumulate a sense of wealth, but this confuses Scorpio, because there is such a kingdom in the unconscious, accessible to both
Gemini sees an infinite possibility in every conclusion, finding a thousand and one ways to decipher truth in every intelligible concept. Everything could be true. And Sagittarius explores for ultimate, one, pure truth, that which resonates through their higher mind and the universe. Gemini appears deceptive, Sagittarius too single minded
Cancer rides the tides of fantasy, imagination, and the waves into a splendid inner world, where they spend much of their time soothing the scared child inside. Capricorn does not want to indulge in these experiences, wanting to appear and feel tough minded and masculine for holding onto one belief frantically. They believe this gives them strength, but it becomes weak when Cancer consciousness washes away the seams of reality
Leo is exhibiting single consciousness, and exhibition of God’s creative dance in a vivid and dramatised display. The heart beats with the whole universe. And Aquarius is riding the glass elevator above and beyond the human showcase of the ego, already telepathically communicating with the collective. Leo emanates as God, and Aquarius reveals the individual God consciousness present in each individual. Aquarius distributes the knowledge of God, and Leo is ego. Ego = escape God. Leo and Aquarius can constantly escape each other’s lessons
Virgo reaffirms the earthly structure of life, reality, and material anxiety. It is for this ability to perceive defect that the hands are open and ready to serve. Virgo rules the hands, they can heal through their cerebral knowledge. And Pisces is antithetical, living in creative vision, ruling the feet, so on their knees in divine service and sacrifice. Virgo wonders how can you serve when you don’t understand. Pisces knows presence and intention is all that becomes required
