Scylla and Charybdis are paternal twins who appear as mirror images of dark and light. Scylla rules a rock shoal, located on the Italian side of the Strait of Messina Her fierce countenance has earned her a reputation as a six-headed sea monster.
Charybdis resides underneath Mt. Etna, one of the most eruptive volcanoes in the world, located off the coast of Sicily. Their close proximity causes an inescapable sea hazard for passing sailors who, to avoid one hazard, are forced to brush up against the other. Are you doubting yourself? When Internal Forces are strong it calms the “What I.F.s” and doubts are chased away. When you let go of the “What I.F.s”, you allow the universe to provide for you to anticipate better. Neutrality is the key to calming internal forces that stir up the “What I.F.s.” Scylla and Morgana remind us that to leave financial and emotional comfort and security for “castles in the sky,” requires letting go of your perception of what security really is. Tape this card to the bathroom mirror as a reminder to view yourself from the perspective of a small child who requires guidance from a loving parent.
