Major Arcana Card 6
A man goes before the Spynx and Pyramids of Giza. He kneels, a gesture of respect and fear. He has a deep understanding that he is in the presence of powerful energy and feels very small. In front of the Spynx are treasures like he has never seen. The treasures can be his if he dares to cross the Cobra that guards them. In each corner he is offered a tool to help him conquer the Cobra and attain wealth like he had never imagined. Will he accept the tools and battle the Cobra or will he run away and be a poor man for the rest of his life?
Meaning of the card: This is the card of non resistance and acceptance. The Surrender card reminds you to recognize that the Universe is all mighty and powerful. Within its divine energy is the life force that will bring joy and fulfillment to every fragment of your being. Submit to its wishes and do not resist. Respect its awesomeness and know that you are but a raindrop in an ocean of water. Surrender to its power and it will grant you all the tools you need to find the answers you seek. In this state of surrender you gain empowerment by acceptance. This in turn will allow you to conquer your fears and receive the gifts that will bring you eternal happiness.
