Weekly Card 7 of Swords Revisited

Again?!  Really?  Again?!

Do you have that reaction to some of the circumstances in your life that just seem to come up over and over and . . . . ?

Let’s take a look at how 7 of Swords can contribute to recurring patterns in our life, since it seems to be a recurring theme for us.

Most often, when Tarot gives you a repeated card over time, there’s something you can learn to do to better navigate life.  So, as you look at the image up there, what’s the story you tell yourself about what’s happening?

We’ve got somebody carrying a bunch of swords and 3 more are on the ground.  He’s looking back at them.

So what do those swords represent?  Since we’re in the world of the mind, “information” is one good interpretation.

And why is our figure looking back at the information on the scattered behind them?  Is he thinking “I just can’t take in any more”?  Or “Those just aren’t important”?  Or “I’ve got enough, I don’t need more”?

Well, in the deceptive world of 7 of Swords, having as much information as you can gather is a good thing.  We’ve got lots of ways that we deceive ourselves about how much we know, when we haven’t gathered all the info that’s available.  And there are lots of reasons for why we get into that self-deception.  Sometimes, we just really don’t want to know the truth (my son did what??!).  Sometimes, we’ve already got too much on our plate (I need to revise this report by when??!).  And sometimes, we just don’t like what we’re going to hear (you mean everything I just did for the last week is worthless??!).

What are the hard questions you need to ask yourself this week about the stuff that keeps biting you in the <select body part here>?  Is there something or someone you’re always complaining about that you need to take another look at?  Keep in mind that the best remedy for a returning 7 of Swords is to go pick up those swords that you left behind.

Don’t beat yourself up, just go pick up the swords.

Good fortune to all of us in getting to the truth this week!

Weekly Card Queen of Wands

Transparent Tarot

Hold on to your hats, folks, the Queen of Wands has made an entrance!

Do you know someone who absolutely cannot be ignored?  S/he doesn’t have to work to be the centre of attention, s/he just brings so much enthusiasm, creativity and passion to every situation that she draws everyone in.

Rider Waite Smith Tarot

Well, that individual is your key to the Queen of Wands.

As a Queen, remember, she is water, and as a wand, she is fire; water of fire.  Flowing lava.  And, sometimes, erupting lava.

Sounds dangerous, doesn’t it?   Well, she is, if you get in her way.  She’s got so much creativity and passion that she simply can’t hold it in.  She’ll snap your head off without a second thought.

And she’s so charming and beguiling that she’ll pull you back in next time you meet.

All this drama isn’t just theatricality in action.  Queen of Wands also offers healing and transformation when she shows up.  Her passion will take you to new places.  You’ll learn new ways to care for yourself as well as for others.

And, pssst, a quiet hint to the wise, expect a whole lot of sensuality, at the very least, and an awakening of sleeping sexual energies at the super-charged level.

There’s a timing cue for Queen of Wands in the Tarot tradition connected with Western Astrology:  Sagittarius, approximately the 23rd November to the 21st December.  You’ll want to keep notes to see if that has any application to the situations you encounter.

And, in the now . . .
