KING OF CLUBS (King of Wands)
Just the fellow to get you going in the morning. This King is very fiery, but it reminds me of having a temper tantrum as well; it is a fine line with him.
There are skulls in the rock of the mountain and streams of volcanic lava. This reminds me of circulation in the body and hidden problems, my screaming pain. Since I find it hard to get up and down from the floor I have been lying prone in bed and raising my legs to enhance the circulation and help with edema. As well, I have been trying not to sit or stand too long, and take stretching breaks every 30 minutes or so. Going into my fourth day of eating properly and drinking lots of water and eating lots of fruit, I am starting to feel better and as I feel better I am feeling awareness of circulation and my lack of it.
To go with this, I took a random snippet from the Canticle of St. John of the Cross:
This too reminds me that health matters are not perfectly understood but I do think tuning into the body helps, I can feel the truth in my heart, and feel the will to change. Faith is not necessarily religious, the root of faith is trust and confidence, and I feel more confident as I take better care of myself.
The King has a good position for an overview of the matter. There is something to be said for trusting perception but St. John allows that this is not a perfect understanding.
Keep moving, keep stretching, feel the blood run freely through the veins.
