Really fell away from doing the alphabetical prompts. Not really all that bothered by it. Things happen. Organization in our lives is a bizarre concept. People seek structure, but more times than naught, we are distracted long enough for our special sense of order to go up in smoke as we are pulled away through the doors of chaos. And there is no logical recourse than to go with the flow and do our best to understand the signals and messages that the Universe has given us. Strangely this sense of chaos reminds me of The Fool. Yes the tarot card. I found a lovely book of Luis Royo illustrations which were organized into the form of a tarot book. Bibliomancy is an old time favourite practice of mine, and one that my husband is very skilled at. I was thinking of a dear friend of mine when I opened up that book in random fashion and found myself looking at The Fool. He is the jack of all trades, the man who has his hands in many different doorways; vested interests in many different dimensions. He isn’t held down by restriction. For him, the road is open and free. It is merely his decision as to where he will travel, and what he will do. For the fool, the sky is the limit. A new way of seeing the world and the ways in which he is interacting with it. In many ways, The Fool is like Loki.
In a similar fashion, Loki is also a brilliant force that knows the rules, and knows how to bend or break them in order to do everything and be everywhere. I look at the urnes pendant around my neck and I think for a moment about how this is a reflection of the paths that I walk. I have a friend who is very eccentric, and very intelligent, who walks with both Odin and Loki. Since I shared with him that I am on that path as well, his head was filled with a deep hearty laughter, and a strange admiration as he once told me that it was not an easy path but came with its own benefits. I look at my nonagram as well, and I remember a time when I thought the two completely separate, and had no bearing on one another. And now when I look at the nonagram I see pathways throughout the nine worlds.
Loki is also a great force of change. He reveals a path of big changes. The kind of changes that you find yourself making, even when you don’t entirely understand why you’re making them. All you know is that it is imperative that these changes be made. And somehow that’s enough of an impetus to action.
