Today’s card from the Wildwood Tarot. The 4 of Arrows (Swords). Notice the arrows are not piercing the person, but have instead landed around him, almost like a crib effect. Perhaps he’s dreaming of becoming the butterfly. The books says rays of energy are coming off the butterfly, not sure I can see that.
The message of the card is that we need to rest and recharge our minds/psyches as well as our bodies. Life is full of stress, and lately the news has been even more full of real horrors than usual. Or maybe it’s the same as ever, but just getting to me more. And I’m lucky; none of the tragedies of the last few days have impacted me personally. I just grieve with those whose lives have been destroyed or turned upside down.
I guess I should take some vacation. Looking forward to the long 4th of July weekend already. My company gives us the 4th & 5th off, I can hardly wait! And I am still grateful every single day to be out of that last job I was in 2 years ago. I know how lucky I am.
