All Hallows Tarot offers us the Six of Swords.
This is a card that I often love, it can have such a sense of forward movement and things getting better. Here, as it's a very urban deck, we have something rather different. Still, that sense of the wish to move on is clearly there, a suggestion that movement is in our mind and intention as much as in physical displacement. I am also struck by their t-shirts, each with a three-of-swords depiction. This implies that what makes them want to move is the fact of having suffered some heartache. And so they dream and plan, sending their paper boat down the stream to end up who-knows-where...
Thinking about this card, what I'm aware of is my desire to finish the taught part of my Masters - it is weighing heavily on me at the moment. I want to have more time for me: to read the books I am most interested in, to meditate, to reflect, to sleep. I want to feel less stressed. That's still just a dream - five and a half weeks to go before this part is over, and that's quite a while, and with three essays to write between now and then. Still, maybe acknowledging my desire for movement, and planning how to get there, is what is called for.
I am grateful for the freedom of my mind: to dream and plan.
