Tarot today – Six of Swords – On my Six of Swords card, shadowy figures drift from turbulent waters into safer currents. Brightness breaks through cloudy sky and a Castle indicating safe haven can be glimpsed in the distance. I usually post very early in the morning & pull the card that I am focusing on, if I am focusing on a card. Then I lay on a couch in contemplation while I wait for the rest of my world to catch up. I drift off into the imagery of the card. Many of the images in this deck were created between 20 & 30 years ago, so the layers of meditation around them deepens & wraps itself around me like a favourite blanket. The essence that forms in my consciousness for this card today is : ‘escape’. Wherever the vessel drifts & whatever stories you tell yourself you may be able to escape circumstances, people, places or any other interaction or distraction that drifts your way. The one thing you will never escape is yourself.
“wherever the boat drifts, be sure to leave the very best impression of your spirit that you can”
A favourite quote of mine, again no one is really sure who said it is ‘They May Forget What You Said, But They Will Never Forget How You Made Them Feel’
Make peace with yourself today, wherever the boat drifts, be sure to leave the very best impression of your spirit that you can.
