leaving anyway

Maybe you wonder where you are
I don't care
Here is where time is on your side
Take you there

~ Road to Nowhere, Talking Heads
When I see the 8 of Water coming up for the day, I think of just walking away. Life may seem just fine. Bills are paid, there's food in the fridge, the family is getting along, the dogs obey, the cats continue not to (because they're cats). Everything is just fine.

Except . . . one's self.

Water speaks to emotions and the number 8 is one of those hefty karmic numbers. As ye sow, so shall ye reap. Maybe there's a thing that's been at the edge of your mind you've been ignoring. Pushing away a fear? Hiding an emotion? Does something need to be said?

Sure, it's fine to step away, but wouldn't it be better to travel on without the burden?

Perspective: This card is just for today. In what small way can you step away from the status quo and toward a more authentic self? Tread lightly here. There are others' feelings to consider (Water = emotions, remember). It should not deter you from choosing your own course, however. Here, as in the Present, is where time is on your side.
