A few weeks ago The Sacred Chalice card came out of the set and though at the time I suspected it was in positive mode I also explained that it had a negative side that if chosen from the deck may mean that you are hitting rock bottom and in need of rebuilding energetically from scratch (see The Sacred Chalice here). The reason I bring it up now is that this combination is leading you down the garden path to exactly that, unless you make changes now to correct your course.
The Dancer’s Dual is a combination of Principle 3: I AM Human and the blood red of the base or root chakra.
The base chakra is your connection to your body’s physical state and energy, the chakra’s health is directly related to the provision of material and physical needs such as food, shelter, safety and also adequate rest. When out of balance it can, at its worst create exhaustion as well as produce negative feelings of irritability, anger, rage and resentment (usually when those needs are not being met).
Combining this energy drain with the “Human” and therefore fallible factor suggests that a lack of forgiveness and a hurt ego are involved here and that conflict is at the root cause of the depletion.
There’s a famous dance, it’s called the tango… it’s full of passion and angst. She pushes him away, they struggle and strut, he drags her back, spins her around etc… it’s all very dramatic but the biggest problem with this dancer’s dual is that as spectacular as it looks to the outside world, when played out between two people as a real life struggle with real life aggression and ego involved, the dance has anything but a beautiful ending, the symbolic red rose held between the teeth of one of the participants ends up chewed up and spat out and the two dualists, through a lack of that forgiveness, end up exhausted having squandered vital resources defending their position.
Of course there is another layer to the combination that only occurred to me last night and that is that all the petty disputes and quarrels between family, loved ones, partners etc. mean exactly squat when someone gets sick… poignant for me today.
I hope you have the opportunity to embrace the forgiveness needed this week before drastic intervention puts everything in perspective for you.
More next week… x
