Accepting Things As They Are
Strength, 3 of Swords, The World
Strength - This card shows our relationship to beast or Nature. It shows a woman taming a lion. In this version of the card there is love and complicity between her and he lion. She completely trusts and is at one with her animal/creative side. She works with Nature vs domination by force
3 of Swords - "the Three of Swords often represents the nasty little curve balls that life can throw sometimes. Betrayal, abandonment, rejection, separation, a reversal of fortune. These hurts are painful because they hit you when you least expect them. If you have drawn this card, you may know what it refers to, but if not, the Three of Swords is a valuable warning. It is likely there is something amiss in your life that you are unaware of or unwilling to acknowledge. Curve balls hit us when we're looking the other way. Examine your situation carefully. Talk to the people in your life. Don't take anything for granted. Listen to your inner voice; it will help you locate the problem."
The World - .This card represents the closure phase of a big chapter in your life. You will be mulling over every person, place , goal and dream wondering what to keep, what to try harder with, resurrect, or walk away from all together. Many good things can be culminating in success now, as well as new clarity and a new vision of life as you gradually make room and let go.
Overall this Week
The cards this week are showing us that we are trying to control a situation, person or group. Control can be overt or very subtle. If you are struggling with someone or a group, a job, then you may want to ask yourself if you are trying to effect an outcome that YOU want vs seeing what the situation needs, or the realities of those in question. We often find ourselves vying or striving in situations and feeling tired or stressed in our interactions. Sometimes its' because we're going against the grain or our own values. This week it's time to let go. The 3 of Swords is the card of a broken heart and sorrow. It means it's time to let something go or die - even if that is your expectations, and even if it's only in your own mind that you make the shift. Once again, this can play out as an actual ending, but it can also be very internal and subtle. It still means we must grieve what we thought something or someone was and start to accept things as they are. The World card means we're putting things to an end of a long chapter in our lives, so there is a lot to evaluate at once. Take your time to review all the ways you may be going against yourself and your own truth or well being, and start making those small significant changes. You will feel better soon. You will feel more freedom and room to breathe.
