Osho Zen Tarot- Going With The Flow

Going With the Flow is also called "The Ace of Water" ( the Ace of Cups in traditional tarot decks) and shows an indistinct figure that is floating in a large pool of water in which soft waves are rising and falling ... the water is blue and empty and the figure appears to be naked and shallowly submerged in the water itself.

The figure's posture is relaxed and reminds me of a loose version of the Hanged Man's posture leg tucked lightly behind the other, the left hand tucked behind the head while the other floats outward comfortably from the body.

The companion book states, "When this card appears in a reading it is an indication that you are able to float now, trusting that life will support you in your relaxation and take you exactly where it wants you to go. Allow this feeling of trust and relaxation to grow more and more; everything is happening exactly as it should."

Sometimes, when our plans are thwarted or things do not go as we wish them to, it reminds us that we are not in control and sometimes it is easier to just let go of the imaginary reigns we hold on to so tightly and understand the universal mind has our best interests at heart and we can just sit back and let it happen.
