The Horse King is the card drawn today from the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid. It is the 42nd card.
In numerology the number 42 becomes 4 + 2 = 6. The number 6 resonates with: harmony, community, domestic, responsible, care/caring, teacher, conventional, provider, protector, healer, idealistic, selfless, honest, charitable, faithful, nurturer, truth, order, economy, emotional depth, curiosity, deep love of home and family, humanitarian, service, unselfishness, balance, good provider, peaceful, self-sacrifice, empathy, sympathy, unconditional love.
It’s not hard to see why the ancients would have appreciated 6 as a number. It stands for what it means to be human in an inhumane world.
When you see The Horse King, it means you are receiving synchronistic assistance while relinquishing control. It’s very much a case of going with the flow in a completely trusting manner. The Horse King has got your back enabling you to forge ahead with your plans whatever the weather.
What causes us to be controlling?
- Fear – You worry that things won’t turn out or bad things will happen.
- Unworthiness – You don’t feel as though you deserve support or for things to go your way.
- Lack of trust – You’re scared to let go and believe that things will be okay without you managing every aspect of the situation, relationship, conversation, etc.
As you accomplish whatever you can to resolve a specific need, keep the possibility of synchronistic assistance in mind. Set aside time for intentionally seeking synchronistic help. For example, when relaxing, think:
I require synchronicity to help with ******.
Be as specific as you can, hold the thought for a while and then let go.
Message from the book
The Horse King always comes to lend you the power to go the distance, forging ahead whatever the weather. You will most certainly reach your perfect destination with this noble Ally. He lets you know that some person or circumstance brought through synchronicity will certainly appear to help you with your endeavours. You are not meant to go through this part of the journey alone.
This is also an important time to delegate authority to others that they may assist you. Currently, you are magnetic to powerful people who are in a position to help you make your dreams come true. The Horse King asks that you remain open to those who are sent to aid you. You can be assured that you will be lifted up and will ride high in victory.
The Horse King wants to know why you think you can do everything all by yourself. Keeping control of everything around you is counterproductive and exhausting. You may lose an important opportunity if you insist on being stubborn. The Horse King is patient, however, and will wait for you to come to your senses and accept the help you need. You will not be able to reach your goal otherwise.
Yet The Horse King says that all it takes is a decision to jump on his back, ask for the help you need, and graciously allow yourself to be carried to your destination. Let go of control and amazing things can happen for you.
“I don’t want to live in the kind of world where we don’t look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I cant change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit.” ~ Charles de Lint
