Every Tuesday I select one tarot card and give you my interpretation of it. See how it applies to your life. What messages are here for you?
Each Wednesday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Wednesday (tomorrow) to see what cards come up.
Today's card is the Seven of Swords (reversed). At first it's natural to think something "bad" or think something might be "wrong" when you see a reversed card. Why else would a reversed card come up?
In my tarot classes, we talk about the "good" and "bad" nature of the cards and how even when something feels "bad," it can turn out to be something "good," which usually turns into a discussion on duality. My philosophy is that it's tough to tell whether something is "good" or "bad;" it just IS. And it is our reaction to it that deems it as good or bad.
Today's card is the Seven of Swords (reversed). Sevens can indicate a choice of some sort, vision, a turning point or fate. In numerology, the seven is a very spiritual number. It can refer to looking within, contemplation and choice. Swords typically refer to intellect, mental challenges and/or conflict.
The Seven of Swords in its upright position has to do with being cunning or sneaky. It can mean finding an ingenious way of solving a problem or feeling cheated or uneasy about something you have done. When reversed, it can indicate to allow things to take their own course. It may show that people might change their minds and/or may find a new appreciation for you and your ideas.
When you draw the Seven of Swords reversed, know that if something has been taken from you unfairly, it may be returned. If someone has been mean to you or talking about you behind your back, you may receive an apology.
The feeling of the Seven of Swords (reversed) is one of appreciation for who you are and possibly exoneration. You did what you needed to do and people may not have understood it at the time...but now they do OR it doesn't matter to you or to the situation.
I've said this before, but it's good to reiterate...Remember that right now is just a slice of what's happening. If you get caught up in the fairness of the situation at this point in time, it may affect how you move through what comes next and what comes after that and so on.
Take a moment now to step out of the drama and see that this is just a SLICE of the story. Yesterday someone may have been unfair to you and today someone apologizes to you. Watch the story of your life unfold.
Just as in tarot, life is a series of cycles. When you are able to step out of the drama and see it for what it is, it becomes less of a personal affront and more of a tool for growth. Where are you in the cycle? How can you step back and learn from what's happening right now?
