Otherworld Tarot! Compared to yesterday's Five, though, this Ten of Swords seems positively cheerful.
off there's the subtitle: New Beginning Ahead. And even the image
itself is far less gloomy than many a version. While there are nine
swords poised to stab someone, they aren't actually in flesh, and in any
case they are cocktail stick-sized swords poised over just a hand.
Above that is a tenth sword, pointed to the right, around which small
red butterflies and a big green butterfly flit.
then seems to be that action is stymied by negative thinking, but that
our ideas can be transformed, leading to that new beginning.
It seems the last three cards have all had something to say about things going slow, of action being halted in one way or another. Certainly, Big Boy being a bit under the weather the last few days has affected what we could and couldn't do. Today,is no different, as he isn't well enough to go to school again :( This card also reminds me of acupuncture. I've been intending to make an appointment for him with a Traditional Chinese Medicine specialist, who I met when I had acupuncture with her. Guess this card tells me to stop thinking about it and do it.
I am grateful for the reminder that my inaction is purely my own, and can be changed.
