A chef holds up a small turkey or large chicken, contemplating it. This is the place in the restaurant where the food is ready, it’s just waiting for the wait staff to bring it to the table. This card represents the assembly line of the invisible world as it brings something into reality. There can be a stoppage along the way, and it can happen at any point. This is the point where the thing you desire has been created, where you feel right on the verge of having it, yet it’s not coming. Maybe you’ve finished the novel and are waiting for an agent or publisher, or maybe you are almost finished with a painting, and you don’t know exactly what to do. Essentially, you have to wait for the kitchen and the staff to work things through. If the food stays on the heat lamp for too long, it will be inappropriate to serve. In this case, you have to wait for the chef to prepare another dish. In a restaurant, just like in life, the system will always keep moving. Any hold up in the line is short-lived. There is no room on the This is the card of thwarted success, or success stopped short.
When you draw this card it is a reminder that all success happens in divine time. Any time requirements you put on your success are subject to the same laws as the rest of the universe. Sometimes the reasons for this are in your domain, and sometimes they are in the domain of other forces. Focus on what is in your domain, and allow the universe to deliver it’s manna to you when the laws of the universe permit.
This is the card of Saturn in Taurus. The Limits and boundaries of Saturn, are putting a yoke on the creative expression of Taurus. That expression is always a result in the material world, so that temporarily at least, the universe does not seem to respond as it usually does to your efforts. Rest assured this situation is temporary. There will always eventually be more room on the light tray. Like the restaurant, the universe must deliver what it creates, always. Any hold up in this delivery is temporary.
