Well I have to admit I’m not too thrilled to see this card today. Interesting that my friend Beth Owl’s Daughter pulled the infamous 3 of Swords for her card of the week today, and here I am with another heartbreak/grief card, the 9 of Swords/Air. We were both tempted to put the card back and pull another!
Still, the important thing to note is not so much the storm of emotions in the card, but how we deal with them. In the card, the woman is releasing her grief and despair into the earth, where it is grounded and transformed. She gathers strength from the earth and the knowledge that She Who Watches “has her back,” and is able to move on. The affirmation I wrote for this card is: I allow the Mother to heal my sorrow as I open my heart in compassion to others.
What does this card say to you, dear Readers?
