Card #445 – Crossing the Threshold

  text © Jonathan Zap

Summon your will to cross the threshold.

Change is our only true constant. Sometimes change is gradual, in other cases life demands from us a major transition in a compressed period of time. While it is certainly foolish to rush into a major transition, to act before we really know, it can also be foolish to hesitate at the brink when we know that the call for action has already arrived. As both Freud and Jung noted, the human psyche, like all organisms, is essentially conservative in nature. It seeks to maintain its homeostasis, its dialed-in equilibrium, and it resists and fears substantial change. But as the Dylan lyric tells us, “He not busy being born/Is busy dying.”

This card suggests a time when you need to be busy being born, and that may require labor pains, growth pains and metamorphosis. The great transition may involve more inner change, more outward change or various combinations of both depending on your circumstances.

Consider this a propitious time to cross the great divide.
