Examining the Past


When Earthworm appears, it is time to work over all we have been experiencing,
a time to examine and digest what has occurred in our life.
Then we can cast off what is not beneficial or necessary clean house emotionally.
This allows new growth.

Earthworm also reminds us that no matter how small our efforts seem,
we are reshaping the earth around us.
The past (including past lives) influences the present and the future.
Unless we recognize and acknowledge the past,
we can repeat the same mistakes.

Earthworm also cautions about putting ourselves into a vulnerable position.
We need to be careful when before throwing ourselves wholeheartedly into something new. Do not react hastily. Work over the old before starting anything new.

Earthworm reminds us that no matter how difficult things might have been,
new growth and new hope awaits us.
