I received some pretty crummy news this morning. A lucrative contract to sell my 5-acres fell through. Interestingly, right before I read this news on my cell phone, I drew a daily Tarot card: Two of Swords.
“OH, GREAT”, I said not knowing then how this card would play out, and powered up my cell phone.
The card was DEAD ON. As you can see, the Robin Wood Tarot shows a blind-folded woman balancing two swords while tormented by a storm. The symbolism here is that the mind is in a state of agitation over a decision where all the facts cannot be seen. It is a fearful place to be and I am smack dab in that spot. I have a scary decision to make. Because the sale fell through, I am giving serious consideration to moving to the property and building a home even though my husband is not too keen on the idea. There's many reasons why I want to take this step and there's many reasons why I don't. This card confirms that my mind is a mess and I'm still not seeing an answer because I'm not willing to take the blindfold off.
Being a bit curious, I pull out the Two of Swords in the Sensual Wicca Tarot. The card shows a woman and a man standing face to face on a beach, each holding a sword. Here is the crux of my problem: a battle with my lover. If Eric was on board with moving, there would be no issue. However, the truth is that I'm in a standoff with a man I love and respect very much. I giggle and thank my Guides for showing me what I am afraid of: a confrontation.
So, you see, this one card reading was an affirmation about the energy in my life right now. My guides told me something I had not yet recognized. That's the beauty and power of Tarot: it reflects back in a way so we can see a blockage from a different perspective. Tarot consistently does this for me and it will do it for you.
What am I going to do now? Nothing. I will hang this decision up and wait for a sign from my Guides who I know will show me the path when it is time.
