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 Totem is all about family. It is our connection with the past. It is the karma we bring into this life. It is about genetic influences. Yesterday, I heard that we are all 99.9% the same. That's pretty close to saying we are all one. Genetic connection is being studied world wide.
Often, Totem is about karma and Spiritual Family
The pregnant mouse is the card of poverty: poor as a mouse. It is also about your needs being met.
There is also emotional stress and the feel of threat (you might feel very small in a much larger world). Are you focusing on lack and in need of support?
The mouse also tells us to be patient. The seeds are planted and will take some time to develop and be delivered, like a baby.
The gate is close and barred. What do we do now? Connect with your Spiritual Family and ask for assistance. You are poor if you don't have that family blessing. You can by asking for it.
You are loved and blessed.
