This week an internal battle will play out. Take off the blindfold. See what is right in front of your face. What you see may be a factor in keeping you stuck. You need to be mindfully aware of the Ego stepping in to create an illusion trying to stop you from seeing the truth. As you search inwards you will find a sense of clarity and peace. Right now, it’s all about keeping balance. Find the courage to take time to be open to the wisdom and messages as they unfold. No matter if you don’t like them or don’t understand them. In time it will become clear.
Eight of Swords
Bondage, confusion, and inner battle. Swords surround her keeping her contained and stuck in the place. Blindfolded thus she can’t see the truth or refuses to see what is happening. Need to look at your current situation objectively. Filter out your emotion. Take off the blindfold. Determine what truth you need to see right now before it is too late.
Guidance, solitude, and introspection. In the traditional Tarot deck = the Hermit. Frozen in place. Observing what is on the horizon. Seeking truth. Step back from all that is playing out to see the truth. Listen to your internal guidance. Trust in your decision.
*NOTE* On these two cards the horizons are connected. Both as the sun is setting. In the Eight of Swords, the castle in the background could easily be the cliff upon which Merlin stands. He is the beacon of light for the woman on the beach once she finds the courage to remove her blindfold.
Balance, moderation, and peace. In traditional Tarot = Temperance. When she appears, you can rest assured that the decision you reach will evoke clarity and peace. You must look inward to your own inner knowledge to transform. You are to walk this journey on your own. Realize you are enough, and you have enough. This is your path and your path alone to ascend to a higher self-awareness.
Rooster symbolism = Christ, courage and confidence
Boar symbolism = abundance, courage, but can also indicate a stubbornness to accept.
Setting aside your ego. Center yourself in love and light to be open to receiving and accepting the messages presented no matter what they are.
Third Eye Chakra focus this week as you grow and expand your conscious awareness. All insights received this week will greatly affect your life’s journey of personal spiritual growth. You must truly be open to receiving and accepting the messages. As they may be hard to hear, and your ego may be triggered.
