The Seven of Water represents letting go and surrendering to the flow of life, and doing so with complete trust and faith. She is about relinquishing control over all relationships and outcomes, and believing that whatever unfolds in the future is what is meant to be. She has worked diligently in the present, imbuing all she does with her love, so as to create a future that will bring what she needs – to learn, heal, and grow. Now, content and satisfied, because she knows she has done everything she can, she lays back to rest, allowing herself to flow to the next moment and task.
The need to control others, or a situation, is born of fear. Whether that fear is about losing someone or something we love, of being alone, or is simply a fear of failure of missing out, we do what we can to maintain the illusion that we have control. But control is only an illusion, even if we would like to believe otherwise.
We can make empowered choices, and work with due diligence and dedication. We can create with the purest of intentions, and be motivated by love, but the outcomes we desire will also be influenced by timing, circumstances, and other people – both those close to us and those of whom we have no knowledge. Because of this, we can have only a partial influence, and the rest is up to fate. If we try to exert more influence and control, we risk sabotaging our hopes and desires, and manifesting an outcome that is vastly different to the one desired. How do you hold on to water? The future is not fixed: it is fluid and shifting and so vast with infinite possibilities that it cannot be contained.
Allow it to be.
Detach emotionally, let go of all expectations, and have faith. Don’t invest in speculation, what ifs, maybes, worry, or fear.
The Seven of Water comes to tell you that it is time to take a deep breath and exhale. If you have set your intentions, are motivated by love, and have done all that is necessary here in the present, then it is time to give yourself permission to relax and go. Embrace a peaceful, receptive, and flowing state that takes you forward on the next stage of your journey. Your future is now in the hands of Fate.
