Spear-point

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Origins ~ 8 of Swords/Blood

A departure from the standard, this speaks of satisfaction, plenty, success, victory. It is a step through the looking glass to the other side of self imposed bondage and submission, but recognizes the great effort it takes to down a buffalo with a spear-point. Whatever form your 'buffalo in the room' might take.

I have a friend who has not been able to shuck off the bonds of a poverty stricken childhood. Her spear point took the form of buying. Too much. Now she has a house full of multiple dish sets, too much furniture, a million souvenir tee-shirts. And a sincere wish to divest it all, combined with an inability to do so.

I think my buffalo in the room has been a lack of self confidence. I've forced a million bold moves, but I think they've all come to naught because I fail in the ability to confidently move forward beyond that initial push. Maybe tomorrow....
