Six Of Fire

The Explanation of Six of Fire Osho Zen Tarot

This character in Six of Fire Osho Zen is clearly at the “top of the world” and the whole world is celebrating his success with ticker-tape parade!

Because you are willing to accept the recent challenges of life, you now – and will soon – enjoy the wonderful ride on the back of a successful tiger. Celebrate, enjoy, and share the joy with everyone – and remember: every colorful parade has an opening and an end. If you keep this in mind and squeeze every drop of happiness you are experiencing right now, you will be able to embrace the future without regret. However, don’t try to hold on to this moment, or wrap it in a plastic bag so that it lasts forever.

The greatest wisdom to keep in mind with all the phenomena in the parade of your life, whether at the peak or the abyss, is that “this too will pass.” Celebrate, yes, and keep riding on the tiger’s back.

The Energy of Six of Fire Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings

Watch the waves in the ocean. The higher the wave goes, the deeper is the wake that follows it. One moment you are the wave, another moment you are the hollow wake that follows. Enjoy both – don’t get addicted to one. Don’t say: I would always like to be on the peak. It is not possible. Simply see the fact: it is not possible. It has never happened and it will never happen.

It is simply impossible – not in the nature of things. Then what to do? Enjoy the peak while it lasts and then enjoy the valley when it comes. What is wrong with the valley? What is wrong with being low? It is a relaxation. A peak is an excitement, and nobody can exist continuously in an excitement.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham – Luis

Luis

Protection, strength

Tree: Rowan (Sorbus spp.)

Letter: L

Luis symbolizes a connection with one’s higher spirit or Guardian Angel. Whether you believe in such things or not, we can all agree that without protectors, especially when we are young and defenseless, we human beings make easy prey. Luis indicates you are loved and valued by someone and that they love and value you enough to feel protective of you.

We are surrounded by beings who are willing to teach us and help us grow towards our potential as human beings, but if we reject their good advice with materialist denials or because we are lazy or treat them as spiritual vending machines, they are more than happy to stand aside and leave the doors open for the legions of beings who do not wish us well.

When we grow up, we all become parents of sorts as we end up taking upon the role of self-parent. For example: you get yourself up in the morning, not mom. You obtain food for yourself, you bathe yourself, you are responsible for your own behavior and regulating your own communications and emotions. Luis means you are willing to take the necessary precautions that a good parent would insist upon if you were the child. You are acting as a good parent to yourself, providing protection and sanctuary, allowing yourself room to grow without overreacting in extreme directions.

Questions when you draw Luis:

Numerology

From NUMEROLOGY DOUBLE DIGIT NUMBERS

Twenty-Four

The 6 based on 24 counsels and comforts others, likes music and often plays an instrument (percussion is a favorite). It represents domestic struggles and divorce, needs a solid, stable environment. Can be a bit gossipy.

I Ching

From IChingOnline.net – Hexagram 20

Hexagram 20

Kuan / Contemplation

The gentle Wind roams the Earth:
The Superior Person expands his sphere of influence as he expands his awareness.
Deeply devoted to his pursuit of clarity and wisdom, he is unconscious of the inspiring, positive example he is setting for others to emulate.

You have cleansed yourself; now stand ready to make your humble, devout offering.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

The situation marks a rising to new heights.
As you climb for a better view of the panorama, you make yourself more conspicuous to those below.
This hexagram is also known as the Watchtower, because the shape formed by its lines resembles the ancient guardposts manned by Chinese soldiers.
These towers were placed on mountainsides to give a better vantage point.
To those below, the watchtowers served as landmarks to help them find their way.
The quality of your search for clarity in this situation serves as such a guidepost for others along the Way.

Five Of Clouds

The Explanation of Five of Clouds Osho Zen Tarot

Has anyone ever told you that bamboo is more beautiful than oak, or oak trees are more valuable than bamboo? Do you think that oaks always wish to have a hollow trunk like bamboo? Bamboo is jealous of oak because it is bigger and has leaves that change color in the fall?

The idea of comparing two species itself sounds very funny, but people themselves seem to find this habit very hard to break.

Let’s face it, there will always be someone who is more beautiful than you, more talented, powerful, intelligent, even happier than you. And vice versa, there will always be people who are less than you in every way. The way to find out who you are is not by comparing yourself with others, but by looking to see whether you are filled with your own potential in the best way you know.

 The Energy of Five of Clouds Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings

Five of Clouds Osho Zen brings inferiority, superiority. When you don’t compare, all inferiority, all superiority, disappears. Then you are, you are simply there. A small bush or a big high tree – it doesn’t matter; you are yourself. You are needed. A grass leaf is needed as much as the biggest star. Without the grass leaf, God will be less than he is.

This sound of the cuckoo is needed as much as any Buddha; the world will be less, will be less rich if this cuckoo disappears. Just look around. All are needed, and everything fits together. It is an organic unity: nobody is higher and nobody is lower, nobody superior, nobody inferior. Everybody is incomparably unique.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham – Ailm

Ailm

Transcendence, humility, compassion

Tree: Fir (Abies spp.) or Elm (Ulmus spp.)

Letter: A

Ailm represents the enlightenment that comes of perspective. Its symbol looks like a cross post-resurrection. “He is risen”, meaning He has transcended suffering and has forgiven His persecutors and all mankind to boot. In Iolo Morganwg’s Druid prayer, Ailm is the “love of all existences” that transcends the karmic cycle. Drawing Ailm in any form is a call to look at one’s own personality and to ask “What am I here to learn?” Ailm is a perspective that comes from eons and many, many lives worth of experience. Only lived experience gives us compassion and detachment in balance. Ailm is also the divine aspect of humor. When you laugh an honest laugh rooted in humility, the gods laugh with you.

Though our culture tends to devalue anyone above the age of 40, we can acknowledge wisdom that comes with age, not in every case but reliably enough that it’s a valid stereotype that a person gets “older and wiser.” Having a bunch of lived experience can be quite helpful when it comes to solving life’s problems and making peace with its predicaments. The truly wise neither rush forward with unbalanced optimism nor shrink away with unbalanced pessimism; their information is better than that. They have the ability to read the winds before hoisting sails and attempting to journey across the sea.

Questions when you draw Ailm:

Numerology

From NUMEROLOGY DOUBLE DIGIT NUMBERS

Twenty-Six

It is excellent in business and management, a good strategist and works well with others. Often a workaholic. Can be the exact opposite in personal life: disorganized, lazy, excessively domineering parent.

I Ching

From IChingOnline.net – Hexagram 15

Hexagram 15

Ch’ien / Modesty

The Mountain does not overshadow the Plain surrounding it:
Such modest consideration in a Superior Person creates a channel through which excess flows to the needy.

Success if you carry things through.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

The Cosmos is moving toward equilibrium.
Extremes are being tempered, excess is beginning to shift toward the empty.
You can use these moderating influences to strike a balance in the world around you.
Remember, though, that this Leveling will not come about through an arrogant confiscation of excess, but through subtler persuasions.
Modesty and moderation are the keys.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham – Beith

Beith

Intention, beginnings, births, pioneer spirit

Birch (Betula spp.)

Letter: B

Well dignified:

An intention with good potential. Bravery. Breaking free. Ending bad habits. Getting unstuck. The start of something good. A new way of thinking. An invention or fresh approach. The ability of getting outside yourself and fossilized modes of thinking. Breaking out of the box. Being the change instead of just talking about it.

Humans learn through mimesis, so it is only because of the brave souls willing to put their necks out for change that anything improves in the world. Beith indicates the willingness to follow through with an intention so you can change yourself and your world for the better. At first, it’s possible nobody will follow you, but Beith says you have the courage to get it done.

Every day is a new opportunity to become a better person than you were yesterday, no matter how tiny the improvement. What can you do, even if it is a tiny action or possibly inaction depending on the circumstance, to be kinder, braver, humbler, more honest with yourself, more generous, and more grateful than you were yesterday, last week, last year, or last decade?

Questions when you draw Beith:

Numerology

From NUMEROLOGY DOUBLE DIGIT NUMBERS

Fourteen

See ” Karmic Debt numbers.” Impulse and a need for change and adventure can get in the way of carefully planned progress. Lack of focus and commitment. This Karmic Debt number can get you in trouble unless discipline is exercised consciously. All 5s need to guard against self-indulgence, but when based on 14, there’s a selfish side that amplifies a lack of self-control.

K’uei / Estrangement

Fire distances itself from its nemesis, the Lake:
No matter how large or diverse the group, the Superior Person remains uniquely himself.

Small accomplishments are possible.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

You are working at cross-purposes with another.
The distance between you is very wide.
The gap can be closed, however, with no compromise of your integrity.
You are not adversaries in this case — just two persons addressing individual needs.
Ask yourself: are these needs mutually exclusive?
Is there common ground here?
Must there be one winner and one loser?
Could you become partners in seeking a solution that would allow for two winners?

Three of Rainbows

The Explanation of Three of Rainbows Osho Zen Tarot

The angelic figure with rainbow-colored wings on this card represents the guide that each of us carries within. As the second figure in the background, we may sometimes be a little reluctant to trust this guide when it comes to us because we have a habit of believing signs from the outside rather than from the inside.

The truth from the very deep self indicates where we should go, and when Three of Rainbows Osho Zen appears, it means you can trust the guidance from the inside you are given. His words are a whisper, and sometimes we hesitate, not knowing if we have the right understanding. But the signs are clear; following the instructions from within you will feel more complete, more integrated as if you move away from a very central place of being. If you go with it, the light beam will bring you exactly where you need to go.

Hexagram 43 – Forty-Three

Kuai / Breakthrough

A Deluge from Heaven:
The Superior Person rains fortune upon those in need, then moves on with no thought of the good he does.

The issue must be raised before an impartial authority.
Be sincere and earnest, despite the danger.
Do not try to force the outcome, but seek support where needed.
Set a clear goal.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

Your iron will must come to the forefront now.
It will take great personal determination to resolve the situation in question.
Your adversary would love to force you into an angry display.
That would legitimize his opposition to you.
Such a berserker rage would drag you down to his level.
You must resolutely take a public stand against what he represents, but refuse to engage him.
Without compromise, you show others the way to higher ground.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham – Mor

Mor

Change, shift, the sea, maps, realm of the subconscious, great undercurrents

Tree: Witch hazel (Hamamelis spp.)

Letter: X

Sea change” is a term for profound or holistic change. Change is the foundation of existence. The interplay of opposing forces creates and destroys ad infinitum. Mor bookends the concept of change introduced by the first Ogham, Beith. The intention that sowed an action reaped a habit, the habit reaped a character, and the character reaped a destiny. The new track in space has been laid and change is inevitable.

When you draw Mor, look for the changes in and around you. These are not necessarily good or bad. Often, drawing this Ogham can mean something as basic as “oh look, the season of Spring is arriving”. Mor doesn’t have to indicate any kind of drama, although it could. Mor calls out to you to look at overarching influences, new factors or people, and to examine the permutations and possibilities of how they affect the environment.

Mor is a bird’s eye view of opposing forces in our lives rather than being upswept by the random forces that weave in and…

Each of the numbers has its own symbolism and meaning — almost like its own personality — and its presence influences our lives in different ways. Understanding the unique meaning of these numbers helps us receive the important messages they are sending when they appear in our Numerology and throughout our lives. The number 1 — the very first of all numbers — puts power directly in our hands as a symbol of independence, confidence, and new beginnings.

Eye

Third eye, seeing the truth, clairvoyance, someone’s watching, the evil eye and protection

This rune is my favorite. The all-seeing eye. It represents seeing things unseen, also seeing the beauty in things others don’t. Can also be a warning of the evil eye or someone watching.

Two

Harmony is your nickname. You thrive in relationships – with your romantic partner, family, friends, coworkers, or even the salespeople at stores! You talk to everyone, you are down to earth and people love your presence. You are the life of the party! But sometimes, maintaining the peace in a relationship is so important to you that you forget who you are and make sacrifices that aren’t reciprocated. Learn to stand your ground and put your foot down when necessary. In matters of business, 2 is a great number for successful partnerships. If your life path number is 2, or if the digits of a date adds up to the number 2, know that it’s the best energy to enter into business agreements and create projects through teamwork. 2 is a wonderful omen for signing peace agreements between countries, making up for past mistakes between lovers, and to make any past wrongs right.

Druid Ogham

From Druid Ogham

Ioho

Grace, death, letting go, endings, rest, the beauty of decay

Tree: Yew (Taxus spp.)

Letter: Y

Ioho symbolizes the acceptance of enduring realities and legacies of the past. If you draw Ioho, look for the end of a phase or cycle. Ioho suggests you are handling or will handle the matter at hand with dignity and grace.

Modern culture has spent a great deal of time running away from the ideas of death and decay as natural, welcome processes. As a result, we have a society obsessed with launching our species into space for fear of extinction, a medical industry bent on extending life long after it has ceased to have any quality, and a fixation on youth that motivates the middle aged to undergo brutal, grisly procedures in order to look twenty. When we frame aging (not just of human beings) in a sensible way, we understand that getting old isn’t so terrible. People age and die. Technologies change. Weeks become years. Eras fade away. Letting go is for the best.

Ioho is about accepting limits gracefully. We cannot control much…

The gentle Wind ripples the Lake’s surface:
The Superior Person finds common ground between points of contention, wearing away rigid perspectives that would lead to fatal error.

Pigs and fishes.
You may cross to the far shore.
Great fortune if you stay on course.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

The subject of this hexagram discovers a key to Tranquility by first gaining insight into his own nature, then turning that vision outward.
By resolving inner conflicts and being at peace with himself, he learns to gain insight into others.
In effect, he enters another, sees with the other’s eyes, listens with the other’s ears, feels with the other’s heart.
He then returns to his own center, with new perspective and understanding.
