The Eight of Swords ~ Don't Go Mental!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Eight of Swords, representing: Worry, overthinking, mental interference and confusion. I often describe this card as: Becoming a prisoner in your own mind! The Eight of Swords indicates a time when you are trying to make decisions, figuring out your future, or looking for some kind of clear direction. In this way, the Eight of Swords is like a mental maze or labyrinth, with many twists and turns, and no clear path forward.
Alas, there is no game plan at this time. The more you try to figure out your future, the more you will be frustrated. This is not a time to look for solutions, instead, it’s a moment to let things rest and develop on their own. Indeed, your thought process may even be destructive to you and your mental health.
As hard as it may be, try to stay in the present moment. Problems that may seem unsolvable now, could very well resolve themselves “on their own”, organically, without your interference. Although, this may cause your left-brain, analytical mind to go “mental”, surrendering to higher forces will also strengthen your ability to trust and go with the flow.
Your intuition is your ally. Breathe into each moment like a silent prayer, and ask the forces to be to untangle your present situation. Then turn it over. You could look at this card in this way: The more you let go, the more room there is for new inspirations and possibilities.
Wishing you a peaceful week!
