Um…didn’t I just finish the blog post for the June card, like, yesterday?! Is this year flying by or what? How was your June? Did it reveal any new partnerships to you, romantic or otherwise? I’m grateful for new friendships emerging!
This Nine of Swords feels so right for the energies that are swirling right now. I had been feeling out of sorts and just generally weird in the days leading up to the New Moon on the 4th but I couldn’t figure out why. I mean, it was a New Moon in Cancer, so I thought it was all that watery Cancerian moodiness striking (as it does for me sometimes). But others have been telling me how moody they’ve been feeling as well. The other day, I thought I had dodged the “cry-for-no-reason” bullet but I ended up bawling my eyes out on the car ride home, feeling like the weight of the world was entirely on my shoulders. That night, I expressed some feelings of what could be devalued self-worth, which is a total 180 from where I was a month ago.
I’m telling you all this because to me, this card represents the negative thoughts that seem to attack us. You know, those things that keep us up at night. We can stay up all night worrying or we can take this as a nudge saying, “Hey, let’s pick ourselves up and keep going. It’s always darkest before dawn.”
These Swords can be actual things that bother us (if we let them) or they can be imagined things that have the potential to take us over. The lesson for July is to keep our thoughts in check. Don’t give in to that negative self-talk. For me, this card has shown up to say something along the lines of, “Do you really want to do that?” To which I will say “HELL YEAH” and keep moving towards my goals like the boss that I am! What are you planning this month? Is it something big? Let me know so we can support each other!
