Otherworld Tarot (Schiffer, 2010).
This time we have the Six of Swords, with a strange juxtaposition between subtitle and image. The card bears the word "Tranquility". And yet, the image shows six swords flying across the sky in a way that is reminiscent of many an Eight of Wands image. Three of the swords point upward, three downward, and they seem to fly both amongst the clouds and in between waves of churning water. Each sword pierces a heart, while stars twinkle in the background.
What I see here is the notion of attaining clarity around our emotions - the swords of the mind pierce the clouds around our hearts and churning emotions. That clarity may come from within or without, or a little of both (up and down). Either way, it brings with it a degree of tranquility.
It's funny, I feel I got a fair bit of clarity, and increased tranquility, from some journalling and a trip to my therapist's yesterday. Is there more yet where that came from? Perhaps... Alternately, this may be about focusing on thoughts and ideas today, without the pressure of difficult emotions that have been around the last few days. I could certainly do with a bit of time to focus on work, that's for sure!
I am grateful for some emotional peace that allows me to focus my mind.
