08/05/12: Be Clear or Be Cut | 7 Swords, King Swords



Oy vey. So, here we are. The Seven of Swords (Moon in Aquarius) and the King of Swords (Fire in Air).

Much as I tend to lecture, “There are no ‘bad’ cards,” I must admit, Tarot Swords can sometimes give me pause. I’m pretty comfortable with logic, but a lot of the Swords are not comfortable cards, logical or not.

What are you hiding—especially from yourself?  Little bits and pieces of belief, of pain, of personal history…those things that you would prefer remain under wraps, under the radar, outside your conscious existence? That’s the stuff we’re talking about.

Deal with it. Logically, rationally, and ruthlessly cut away any rotting mass as best you can. THAT is exactly how you keep it from interfering with what you want to accomplish.

And I’ll tell you something right now: that King of Swords? He’s honest and fair, but he doesn’t suffer delays patiently. Patience is more the venue of the King of Cups, or the King of Pentacles sometimes. Not the King of Swords. He’ll cut you down if it’s necessary. He’s not looking for an excuse, mind you. But he won’t hesitate, either.

Take care of your own baggage, so he doesn’t have to.

Do you feel like you’ve got a good handle on your own baggage?

  1. I was just thinking… about 30 seconds prior to clicking on this post “wow look at this mess, I don’t want to deal with it”.

    Guess I know what I’ll be doing today!

      1. Thanks, because my disorganization IS what I’ve been trying to hide from the outside world. It all piled up when I’ve been taking care of my mom.

        Thanks for the gentle push to tackle it now.

  2. Yes, yes and yes! Thank you once again, Dixie, for being my messenger. These cards are a confirmation for something that I was thinking about last night. Something that has been bothering me for a long time that I need to take care of.

    So, it will be dealt with today. Even if it actually takes me till the wee hours of the morning to get it done, it WILL be done before my head hits the pillow tonight. I already feel the sense of relief it will bring, and that’s my motivation!
