Watcher Angel Tarot can still speak to the harder topics in life. Today's card is a case in point: the Ten of Swords has the keyword "Tragedy".
In the foreground, ten swords plunge into the grassy earth. Behind them, on a lake or sea, a burning boat drifts away from the shore, a floating funeral pyre. On a small jut of land, a caped figure stands, windswept and forlorn.
Letting go is never easy, whether it is a person, a pet, an idea or an aspect of ourselves that we must release. However, turning every ending into a tragedy may not be the most helpful response. Acknowledging what is ending without turning it into a drama, we can think of all that was, allow it its due time, and then turn our thoughts to pastures new.
What I'd like to release today is my craving for sweets. Having spent nearly a year avoiding processed sugar, I have succumbed again over the last month. There's one bit of me that says it should be okay for me to occasionally eat some biscuits, that it's no great tragedy. Another part says that I want to be in control of whether or not I eat sweets, and at the moment it doesn't feel that way. Last year, what helped me was a dream. Not being a lucid dreamer, though, I can't summon one on demand. Perhaps I need to come up with a spell to focus my intent...
I am grateful for fruit, nature's answer to chocolate.
