Using my new Crystal Tarot (Trevisan), I shuffled the deck and searched out the 7 of Coins, then laid it out with the card before it and the card after it:
Left: What seeds am I watering in my life right now? -- Knight of Cups
Right: What seeds should I watch for opportunities to water today? -- 8 of Swords
|Crystal Tarot, Elisabetta Trevisan|
Of course I don't want to water THOSE particular seeds, so what seeds should I be looking for? The 8 of Swords suggests I have been trapped in my own thoughts, a circular pattern of thinking that makes me believe escape is not possible. Of course, the call of the 8 of Swords is always to realise that there is a way out of this false prison. Today, I should be vigilant for those Knight of Cups thoughts and feelings, and realise they are blindfolding and trapping me, and remember that I am free to escape that trap simply by walking out of it, just like the woman in the traditional 8 of Swords image. My binding is loose, no one is around to stop me, and the way is clear for me. Just walk away from these thoughts.
Today's card from the Crystal Tarot (Trevisan) reminds me that today is the new moon, an excellent time for banishing. So I think a little work is in order to banish this particular shadow energy of the Knight of Cups. No more water for those seeds. May these seeds no longer feed off my life energy, nor be watered by my tears, nor given the chance to manifest through my words. So mote it be.
