After a short break from my daily draws we jump right in with yet another court card: the Queen of Swords from the Goddess Tarot. Since I have recognized my father in the King of Swords it is no surprise this is the courtcard I identify the strongest with. I love it how she is able to combine her love for truth and intellect with the nurturing aspect of all the queens. She has been through a lot and has distilled wisdom from all her experiences and she has developed empathy for her all her subjects. Some may say she is cold, but this is often more a protection for her fragile heart. Her people depend on her to make the right decisions and to clarify the situation with her favorite tool: language. She can put feelings into words and with her intellect she can word truth and decisions without room for multiple interpretations. It is what it is.
I think today I will put this skill into use to determine my feelings about Divinity. While writing about my feelings and questions; encircling them with words and sentences, sometimes I can find more clarity than by just thinking about them. I love journaling, making lists and mind maps. I think writing is a wonderful tool to explore my inner thoughts.
