Did my ritual today (after two meetings) and so far I’ve stayed on track with my schedule. Gotten a lot done. Today is my reading day, which means I have about 5 people to read for. So I thought perhaps I should do a reading for myself. So here goes:
I thought I would do a short one. So looking at my current situation I asked for a past present future.
Present: eight of swords – limiting beliefs and excuses. Excuses. I do feel like I have been making a good number of excuses for not getting the work done that needs to be done. So that is something I am working on. There is no excuse for not doing the work that needs to be done. If it matters than excuses are moot.
Future: King of swords – the ability to be objective, logical, and assertive. Basically, I see this as my own ass kicking. Me telling myself to sit down, shut up, and do the work. Which also sounds about right. I kind of knew it was going to come to this, but it’s good to see confirmation.
So that is my post for today. I suppose I could look at additional symbolism including the prevalence of swords. Swords are an error element and rollover communication, logical thought, rationality, etc. The fact that two of the cards are minor arcana suggests that the situation is fairly mundane and I’m just dealing with the regular ups and downs of daily life. This constant struggle with myself and my willpower is nothing new, and will likely plague me until the end of my days. And that, as they say, is that.
PS – I dictated this for the sake of time, so I apologize in advance for any wonky sentences or grammar.
