Tarot Heart Healing with Katy Perry

Yesterday, I watched Katy Perry’s new video ‘Wide Awake’ for the first time. Wow! I spotted The Hermit straight away. It was pretty obvious that the song was about the breakdown of her marriage and the lessons she learned from that.

She’s embodying both Death (butterflies of transformation) and The Hermit and taking her inner child along on the labyrinth path to heart healing. Watch the video and you’ll know what I mean.

Four stages of initiation into self-love are clearly present in this video:

  1. Change – Divine forces strike (The Tower) and the building (illusion) begins to crumble
  2. Trial by Fear – Facing the Minotaur-like monsters that dwell in the labyrinth (The Devil) = Facing one’s deepest fear. In this case it is the fear that the self is somehow not enough and that she needs another to complete her
  3. Integrating the Lesson – Shining the Hermit’s lantern to find the way out and looking to the past (Katy as a child) to understand how she ended up there in the first place
  4. Awakening (Judgment/Pluto) – Smashing the illusion (the Knight in Shining Armor) and releasing the butterflies of rebirth  (Death/Scorpio)
The fifth stage – Service – is evident in how Katy Perry inspires others to push through their fears through her art.

LYRICS

Wide Awake
I’m wide awake
Yeah, I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
I’m wide awake
How did I read the stars so wrong

I’m wide awake
And now it’s clear to me
That everything you see
Ain’t always what it seems
I’m wide awake
Yeah, I was dreaming for so long

Pre-Chorus:
I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn’t dive in
Wouldn’t bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
Till I woke up on
On the concrete

Chorus:
Falling from cloud 9
Crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight
(Yeah I’m) Falling from cloud 9

I’m wide awake
Not losing any sleep
I picked up every piece
And landed on my feet
I’m wide awake
Need nothing to complete myself – nooohooo

I’m wide awake
Yeah, I am born again
Outta the lion’s den
I don’t have to pretend
And it’s too late
The story’s over now, the end

Pre-Chorus:
I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn’t dive in
Wouldn’t bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
Till I woke up on
On the concrete

Chorus:
Falling from cloud 9
Crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight
(Yeah I’m) Falling from cloud 9

Thunder rumbling
Castles crumbling
I am trying to hold on
God knows that I tried
Seeing the bright side
I’m not blind anymore…..I’m wide awake

Chorus:
Falling from cloud 9
Crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight
(Yeah I’m) Falling from cloud 9

(Oh now I’m) Falling from cloud 9
It was outta the blue, I’m
Crashing from the high
(Yeah) I’m letting go tonight
Letting go of illusion
(Now I’m) Falling from cloud 9

    She has a depth in her work that I appreciate (and yes, she’s hawt, too), so I have been subscribed to her channel for I don;t know how long. Her voice caught my attention, her look, her words, her demeanor, etc etc whole mindbodybeautiful expressions kinda thing. I say all this as I as well noticed the Hermit, yet straightaway when she senses the crossed fingers of her alleged beau she clocks him a good one in the jaw without hesitation, maybe a little pissed, yet not in that pouty I-didn’t-get-what-I-wanted way. More of a Queen of Swords who immediately sees right through lies and misdirections, a Queen of Wands who can focus her energies vibrantly healthily, a Queen of Cups who would rather not have that in her cup, and a Queen of Pentacles . . . with proper footing to DRIVE that punch through as the best thing for the group. All in all the 4 higher octaved Queens in action I experienced in that single crossed fingers to punch scene gave me the distinct impression that when you place the 4 Queens together seamless synchromesh energy crucible, they become Justice. I’ve been watching this video since last week almost daily, sometimes with sound on, sometimes off. It is packed full of goodies. Thanks for featuring this, Lisa! It made quite an impression on me, too.

    Great observations, Jordan. I get what you mean about the higher octave of the combined Queens becoming Justice – Libra/Venus. Makes a whole lot of sense. And I agree, there’s no poutiness or bitterness when she crushes the illusion of prince charming… just liberation. Katy is awesome!!

    What an absolutely remarkable video. Wow. I had not seen this before. There is wisdom in being wide awake. The gift is knowing better boundaries. The trick is allowing yourself to be vulnerable while still applying wisdom to your choices. Knowledge is everything. I’m still learning. I had my own awakenings.

    Thank you for this remarkable blog. I’d love to make a tarot spread out of those 4 stages of initiation into self-love.

    Thank you!

    Lisa, this is AWESOME! I always appreciate learning about the archetypal symbolism in pop culture – I feel like that’s why so many viral things go viral, because it touches something deeper in us (even if that just winds up reading as ‘MAN i love this song/show/movie!’). Thank you for sharing!

    Wow… amazing symbolism in this one, Lisa. And some of those aerial labyrinth shots reminded me of the labyrinth in the David Bowie/Jennifer Connolly movie as well.
