Today, my friend John C. and I were at the Art Gallery of Ontario. In the room filled with Henry Moore pieces, I stood before “UNECSO Reclining Figure” and felt a shiver of awe course through me as a phrase entered my mind: This is the universe contemplating its own beauty. I gasped.
Here’s a three-card reading to explore Awe:
- What is awe? Page of Wands, reversed. Awe is a deep dive into Soul and an experience of wild spirit energy.
- What is awe’s purpose? Death, reversed. Psychospiritual death and rebirth that transforms one’s outworn mental, emotional, and spiritual patterns.
- What can we do to best experience awe? 7 of Wands, reversed. We can raise our internal temperatures. We can imagine our self-concept and personal spirit expanding far beyond our habitual perceptions of self.
