Daily Draw: Shining Tribe Tarot ~ 4 of Swords reversed
Ever have an older sibling tip you out of bed just because they could? That warm cozy cocoon you were burrowed down in, dreaming the best dreams, probably a Saturday when it should have been allowed?
I'm reminded by this card to not lie down and give up. Last night curled up in my cozy warm bed a fully formed thought drifted across my mind unbidden...If I were dead I could be buried with my sister. Now there was a mental scream. No, I have gazillions of reasons not to wish that. To keep forcing activity and although I hate the phrase, fake it until I make it. I will, I'm still shuddering that the thought was there at all.
"...it lies in all of us. Sleeping, waiting, and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir, open its jaws, and howl." ~ Angelus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 1998
Tarot opened previously closed doors to my own heart with it's merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
