Intuitive Tuesday on Thursday -- Four of Swords

On Intuitive Tuesdays I select a card and give you my interpretation of it. On Thursday I select one reader's comment and pull an additional card.

I encourage you to read about the additional card I pulled this week and see how it applies to your life. Anything that is brought to one of us is a message for all of us.

This week's Intuitive Tuesday card was the Seven of Coins, which is about DOing and ALLOWing, when to apply effort and when to wait.

I pulled an additional card today for Mad Hatter, in response to her comment:
Oooooh - I really like the idea of divine water wings! I'm going to wear mine tomorrow to my appointment with Dr. Lovely - I am so ready to let go of this process a little and let the magic take over! Thanks, Sheri!
I selected the Four of Swords from the Legacy of the Divine Tarot deck by Ciro Marchetti.  I love the image of the man resting on four swords. Even though it looks uncomfortable, he looks SO peaceful!  The key word for this card is REST. This might be physical , mental or spiritual rest (or all three).

Maddy, for you, I believe it means rest from worrying, planning, and having to figure it out. Perhaps you can hand your worries over to a Higher Power, that may be partially coming through in the form of Dr. Lovely right now. This doesn't mean that you relinquish any of the personal responsibility that you have, but let the universe take over for a you can rest and rejuvenate (Four of Swords).

I have written about the Four of Swords in a previous post. You can check it out here.

Maddy, I pulled another card for you from the Message of Life deck by Mario Duguay.  You can click here to check it out or go to your local (metaphysical) bookstore.

The card is called, My Creative Power, and I think it goes well with the Four of Swords.
My Creative Power: I recognize the power of my thoughts. Do I use these thoughts to build or to destroy? I choose to create my universe filled with and surrounded by joy and harmony. I will maintain a positive attitude and let no-one or nothing discourage me. I create love and peace.
Combined with the Four of Swords energy (above) and the Seven of Coins energy from Intuitive Tuesday, the greater message today is to choose your thoughts and consciously take a break from excessive thoughts and worrying and allow the Divine to come into your life.

We are not alone and don't have to do it all ourselves. What makes us think that we should or even could?

This, and the 3Coins (what a perfect follow-up) seems to affirm my sense that it's not quite time to take the concrete steps toward my new life. I've hesitated (!) over the notion of resting, because there is a part of me that's uneasy with not DO-ing. I feel afraid of missing possible opportunities, and afraid of jumping the gun...mistiming.

My counselor said sometimes it is I that has to make "the first move", in setting the process in motion. These cards seem to affirm my sense that it's not quite time yet.

Sometimes I don't know if I'm "resting" or "lazing" or "not deciding."

Rest from worry is always good advice, though.

Looking forward to that reading!

Thank you so much, Sheri - both cards are beautiful and serve a much-needed reminder to let go. My appointment went very well, and I really felt like the universe was reaching out to me and saying that I don't have to carry this burden all alone anymore. It is amazing how much more positive and hopeful I feel just by having the support of my new doctor. And by having your support, too! I really appreciate your thinking of me this week. ;-)
