Wild energy. Pure potential.
Once upon a time there were three pink boys (more or less) and a Rarr, who all played in Brian’s son Toby’s bedroom. They liked the midnight tea parties, the magickal ambience, and of course, they liked Toby. Unfortunately, the Pink Boys got too rowdy, and Brian had to throw them out into the garden, which was where they belonged anyway. The Rarr learned from the experience, in a rarrish way, and it quieted down a bit during the midnight hours.
Rarrs are not naughty or wicked, just energetic. They are also not very discriminating. They like to join into whatever excitement is going on and add energy to it. In a way, they are pure potential, and they potentize whatever is happening. Rarrs are attracted to mobs rioting and to meditation groups rising toward ecstasy and to any other strong energy states.
Rarrs are a bit like Tigger in the Pooh stories. They bounce; they zoom; they go off on wild tangents. (Brian hasn’t painted a Wild Tangent yet, as far as I know, but I know what they look like, having encountered more than my share!)
Think of the rrrarrr of a growling dog, the rrrarrr of an engine revving up, the rrr of a purring cat, and the arrr in Arrrugh! As I say, Rarrs don’t discriminate. It is up to us to do that. They put a live spark into whatever is happening. It is our choice what we do with it.
A Rarr in your cards encourages you to be especially attentive to what you are doing with your energy and intentions. Don’t get carried away by the Rarr’s bouncy enthuisiasm, but do take advantage of the energy. You can accomplish a great deal with the energy being made available to you. This is a good time. Note that the Rarr is not grounded – and is not meant to be – but humans need to keep their feet firmly on the earth. When you encounter the Rarr, breathe slowly. Center. Earth yourself. Be clear about your objectives and then go for them.
The Rarr upside down indicates a terrible problem. Both the querent and the Rarr are losing (or have lost) control and are thrashing about in midair. Faery glamour and faery zaps are running wild. Illusions and delusions are rife. Misunderstandings escalate. A cold shower is definitely in order. Practice grounding exercises. Meditate. Back off and look at things coolly. This may not be enough, but please try.
