The Five of Swords ~ Embrace the Anixety!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Five of Swords, representing: Mental Chaos, conflict, tension and defeat. The suit of Swords represents the realm of air, specifically the mind and intellect. In the Five of Swords we find ourselves overthinking a situation to the point where we lose any semblance of rational thought! This is a moment to step back, and view your life from a greater perspective.
Your mind is powerful, too powerful to waste on indecision or defeating thoughts. Especially, when at the end of the day, the situation you are focused on is likely influx, and with the outcome to be determined at another time. Although you may want to figure everything out, this is not the moment. Know that you will have more clarity when the dust settles.
If “not knowing” is bringing up the fear of not being in control, this card is a reminder that sometimes anxiety is a part of any equation that involves change. And things are changing! Channel your mental stress into practices that ease your mind: meditation, grounding and aligning. Embrace your intuition, right brain versus left brain thinking, and see what insights come from this deeper perspective. Perception is everything now. Be willing to embrace the mystery!
Wishing you a stress-free week!
