Ten of Wands and Seven of Swords
Both of our cards this week speak to ending cycles that no longer serve us. They show us stepping out of patterns that don’t support our larger goals. The cards share their guidance on how we move forward with wisdom and strength.
It is tough out there right now. The world feels chaotic, heavy, and out of our control. The Ten of Wands indicates our frustration. We have strong desires for things to change but that change is elusive.
Our hope may be waning because we are not seeing the impacts of our efforts. The emotions that might come up with this card are irritability and disappointment.
The Ten of Wands also points to a block in our communication. Maybe there are things we are wanting to share that we have had a hard time saying. Maybe we have not known the right words to express how we feel.
This week, how can we get clearer with what we want to say? How can we push ourselves to connect to what we want to see happen? How can we ask for help when we need it?
The many wands on the card as all things we are carrying at this moment. It is hard to handle all of this energy we are lugging with us.
Remember, we do not have to take on everything all at once. Maybe just sharing out loud what you are carrying can be the first step. The next step can be addressing each thing one at a time so that they become more manageable.
The Seven of Swords also speaks to stuck energy that needs to be released. We have been avoiding or covering up something that needs to be examined. The card indicates our readiness to address what has been plaguing us.
This could be a secret dream we need to speak into reality. It could be a bad habit we need to deal with in order to feel more whole. Or it could be a lie we are telling ourselves that is no longer working.
We are called to ask these questions and really examine our hearts and minds. We are called to take out our journals and write with deep honesty.
The Seven of Swords has us questioning our belief systems and investigating our thoughts. We are noticing our patterns and wonder if there is a better way.
We are observing the contents of our minds. We are looking at ourselves and our habits as objectively as possible and supporting our growth without judgment.
Set intentional time aside this week for some serious contemplation and journaling. See if you can get closer to yourself and release what no longer serves you.
The start of the new year is a perfect time to dive into the practice of journaling with honesty and compassion. You can use the questions in the weekly tarot readings to guide your writing.
Mantra for the week: I create new habits through awareness of what is no longer working. I release all that does not serve myself or others.
