Self, Gate, Candle

The Self tells us to look at the big picture.  Getting perspective is very helpful when we are in a fear or panic mode.

We are having an emotional experience, just as we intended.  Had enough yet?  Do you want some more?

There is a higher power.  Tap into the energy that runs through everything and use it well.

The gate is shut and barred. What can we do? We can wait for a little better time.

There is purpose in the shut gate. If you can't move forward, might as well enjoy it. Time for some conversation today and quiet time.

It may simply be a matter of time. The gate doesn't stay closed forever. Is there another way around the gate? The blocks may be small. Take them one at a time. 
Don't let your size or lack stop you. You can grow.

A second meaning of the Gate is that it is the 'No' card of the deck.

The candle is the symbol of wisdom. Find that wisdom today. "It is better to light one candle then curse the darkness" is a very slight on the less common "Chinese proverb" "'Don't curse the darkness - light a candle." The advice given is "if something is wrong, do something about it rather than complain."

Can we throw some light on the situation today?. Light can help us see more clearly.

Candle light also creates a warm environment.

Today is the first day of Advent, the coming of the Light.
The Gate is closed and blocked.  Time to be patient and look for a solution.  Shed some light and  on our situation.  Light a candle as a symbol that you are opening to the light within you.  You can make good progress forward today after a pause.

You are loved and blessed.
