Today I've found my way back again to my tarot cards and I've drawn The Ten of Swords from the Original Rider Waite tarot. This card is all about the defeat of the tyranny of our mind. This man has been stabbed in the back with ten swords which are representing his thoughts. Thoughts, he wasn't able to let go off: old rigid beliefs can cause unwillingness and fear to change. Sometimes you cannot solve a problem with your mental abilities. When you come to this realization and you are willing to be more flexible you will see the sun rise in the East shining its light over you: And then there is Silence. But after that you may wonder, what do I have to change; how do I approach life differently?
And then I pulled the Knight of Cups, who’s dreams are his treasures.
He is coming along for the second time this month to share his wisdom, which is plain and simple: follow your heart.
We do have to be careful not to lose ourselves in the emotional and dreamy state of mind of the Knight of Cups. Again some need for balance is advisable. Maybe he has a sheathed sword on his left hand side??? We’ll never know. But I do hope he is brave enough to cross the river so we can move forward.
