the open road

Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous, criticisms,
Strong and content I travel the open road.

~ Song of the Open Road by Walt Whitman
The 8 of Water is a stack of cups. It is a stack of cups holding all that has been experienced in a certain cycle or during a project. These cups hold expectations and fears, joys and doubts, successes and failures. The work is done and there is some sense of satisfaction, contentment. And yet not.

The restlessness means it's time to move on. Today, you might feel a hint of wanderlust. And that's fine as long as you're not simply seeking a means of escape. It's important to experience all of what those cups hold, to integrate all aspects of a situation, before moving on. Otherwise, you're just carrying the ignored experiences with you. It's better to pack light on the open road.

So.

Put on your comfortable walking shoes. Bring only what's necessary. Walk lightly on this earth knowing what is left behind is complete. You're headed for new adventures and new experiences, but only if you've fully integrated what you're walking away from.
