6 of Swords and The Hierophant
The dreary and rainy scene on the 6 of Swords gives way to a beautiful rainbow above. We have been going through challenging times and our spirits may be low. However, this week there is a ray of hope shining through.
There are times in life where we are surviving rather than thriving. We may be experiencing an onslaught of daily stressors that have ended with us feeling mentally, physically, and emotionally worn out.
Just like the resting swords at the bottom of the card, we too need to rest and know our rainbow is already on its way. We must have faith in the goodness of life, while letting our bodies and minds recover.
The 6 of Swords sends the message that we will be visited by a brighter outlook this week. Whatever has been bringing us down will let up and we will see things in a new light.
The card also speaks to traveling. Whether it is a long adventure or just a weekend out of town, the 6 of Swords tells us that a trip will help with our new perspective.
How can you incorporate the message of the card this week into your life?
Maybe you take time to acknowledge all of the struggles you have gone through and give your body the opportunity to rest. Maybe you take a relaxing trip out of town where you can shift your point of view.
Whatever you do, know your rainbow is on its way and be gentle with yourself. You are a determined warrior who has come so far. Be proud of your hard work and keep your chin up. The cards are supporting you.
The Hierophant is part of that support as well. The message of the card is that a teacher is here to strengthen us.
Whether they are already in your life or they are just around the corner, The Hierophant lets us know it is time for a guide to help us enter the next phase of life.
Be open to a teacher entering your world and let the Universe know you are ready. Be on the lookout for messages from wise sages, either in something you read or a person you meet.
Be ready for mentor by asking for one. Describe the characteristics you are looking for and say them out loud. The Universe will support this energy by helping your teacher find their way to you.
Whether it is in the form of a therapist or spiritual guide, you will know who they are when you meet them. Good mentors do not ask for you to follow them, but instead lead humbly by example. So be wary of someone who tries to sell you on themselves too much.
Much like the crow on the card grasping the large key, they will convey to you the keys of life you have been missing. You only need to let the Universe know you are ready.
Mantra for the week: I honor my struggle and let my body and mind heal. I know hope and a powerful mentor are on their way to support my path. I see the rainbow on the horizon.
