This week amazing things might be right under your nose but you’re just not seeing them. You might even feel bored and disillusioned with life, even though those on the outside looking in may feel quite envious of what you seem to have. Maybe over time you have grown nonchalant and unappreciative of all the good in your life? Today would be a good opportunity to remind yourself how much you have to be grateful for.
The Six of Swords is a card about transitioning from a place of stress and worry to a calmer place where peace of mind can be restored.
Sometimes it can seem that we are trapped in a situation that we know is doing is no favours, but it can be scary and disorientating to move forward. Often we feel that it is “better the devil we know” even though if we are truly honest with ourselves we will acknowledge that staying in this situation is self destructive and damaging.
We can find ourselves stuck in many circumstances that no longer serve us, whether that is a job, a relationship or a location. The longer we remain paralysed by fear of the unknown and afraid to move forward, the more likely it is that the stress and anxiety this engenders will progress to depression. Once this happens it is even more difficult to clamber out of the trap we have fallen into as we then are bogged down even further in the lethargy and hopelessness of despondency.
The rainbow overarching the card is a promise however that things can only get better if we can find the courage to move forward. Even if we only take “baby steps” we will eventually find ourselves in a much more hopeful and positive place. It is challenging and scary to move out of our comfort zone, but necessary for our long term future happiness.
Whatever you’re doing this week, have faith and confidence in yourself. The Mother of Wands epitomises fiery, creative energy; you are more than a match for anyone you come into contact with who is being difficult or prickly. You won’t stand for any nonsense or disrespect, but then again you aren’t one to go looking for trouble unless it seeks you out. Anyone who decides to take you on this week may get more than they bargain for.
The Son of Wands marks the return of a fiery and powerful burst of creative energy. If you have been feeling lacklustre about your projects recently, this week may see a return to high octane enthusiasm and motivation. Perhaps you’ll feel super inspired by new ideas, and ready to surge ahead in your creative endeavours….it feels like Spring is finally in the air, and with that returning warmth and light, the sap begins to rise and restore our energy and passion.☀️
