The courtship years are often fraught with drama and disappointment. The urge to merge leads people down strange pathways in the search for love. Sometimes the search is successful and you find your soul mate. More often than not you are doomed to continue the search. The trick is to enjoy the game, frogs and all, and learn to survive on your own.

Harlequins are gatekeepers who herald a rite of passage. A young lady on the brink of puberty needs to develop tools to move to the next phase – courage, fortitude and a sense of self.  She may or may not be ready but she will have no choice when the time comes for it is inevitable.

The last few months have been quite difficult so this seems like an appropriate image to post.  The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are associated with frightening prophecies. War, Famine, and Conquest (later Pestilence) represent scenarios capable of causing widespread chaos and destruction. The fourth (Death) represents the apocalypse in general. But there is another horseman – a fifth, whose ride signifies a much different future and brings promise of a far better age to come. He/She is an archetype representing rebirth and renewal and brings Hope.

It is easy to be brave from a safe distance but you miss so much of life that way.  The joy of travel is priceless and attainable and much more interesting than experiencing the world from an armchair. One should choose to live life fully, to be part of a greater, more splendid universe. Although lions are dangerous when hungry or feel threatened, they prefer to live a peaceful life.  Proper precautions ensure safe passage.
