In the midst of challenges, it is not uncommon to feel trapped and to forget what it feels like to be in a joyful, peaceful and loving state of mind. Remembering that we experience life through cycles may help us holding on and keep faith in the positive outlook of events.
«Symbol: Sunshine just after the storm.
This symbol speaks to recuperation, and to the ability of individuals to re-enter life fit and refreshed after major stress and strain. The image of sunshine just after a storm speaks to healing and rebirth. The storm is seen here as a process of cleansing and purging. Times of upset and turbulence are the necessary means for clearing away whatever stands in the way of wealth, growth and functioning. The emphasis here is on recovery and reconstruction.
Positive: The accent is on recuperation, restoration and healing. Freedom and happiness follow limitation and sorrow.
Opportunity: your greatest advantage lies in using stress productively. Stay centered and look for the silver lining in the clouds.
Risk: Guard against letting yourself get thrown off balance by disappointment or loss. Don’t rain on someone’s else’s parade or dampen their enthusiasm and joy with your bad mood.» (D. Roche, Sabian Symbol)
