“I belong to quick, futile moments of intense feeling. Yes, I belong to moments. Not to people.”
— Virginia Woolf
In the tarot, the six of cups card represents the golden moment. The moments are those times that are few and far between where everything feels right. We know who we are and why we are and it’s all right. Ten minutes later life might descend back into its normal chaos and our heads filled with confusion that is all too common but for that moment or that day or that evening, it is perfect. We feel connected and in charge of our destiny. As much as we may love the people in our lives we don’t belong to them, each of us belongs to ourself and while we may move life itself to see our loved one’s happy, they also belong to themselves. Those golden moments tho, they are the place where our hearts live and it is there that we return when life is at its bleakest.
