|Ten of Fire|
I'm at a point in my life right now where I truly understand that fire and loss happen to make way for the new. It doesn't mean that it doesn't hurt or that it isn't hard to look at the devastation, but it means I need to start from scratch. I'm sure there are parts of my old life that I will always miss and love, but the earth has been prepped for new growth and it is time to move on.

This card makes me think of the poor people who have lost everything in the California fires. There is such devastation, but from a land perspective it has cleared away debris and given the land a chance to start from scratch. As I think through the times in my life when I have been down and faced loss, I'm realizing that I never really had to start from scratch as I always had my intelligence, the money I had in the bank, and relationships. I've always had some kind of foundation to start with. I don't know if everyone is that lucky or if there are some people who truly are starting over from scratch.
