Eleusinian Mysteries

Daily Draw: Spirit Keeper's Tarot ~ 8 of Swords

Benebell likens the eights to the participation in the ancient Greek semiannual Eleusinian Mysteries and the resulting release from fear of death. This 8 of Swords allows us to pretend we are not yielding to a change that will come, want it or not.

I'm a grown up, I can eat dessert first. She said, whistling in the dark. Because being a grown up provides exhilarating and terrifying stepping stones to life. We can fight to not take those steps...paying income tax, burying our parents, by pretending we don't have to go there. But we do and regardless of how we approach it, life wins. And in the end so do we, whether we flounce from the room or sweep through with royal dignity.
