Tarot: Your week ahead (Week starting Monday, September 12)

Theme for the week: Three of Swords

Three of Swords

Three of Swords, Rider Waite Smith Tarot deck

Due to its blunt imagery, the Three of Swords is a card that many people fear. The picture on the card depicts a heart being pierced by three swords and many people, quite rightly, associate the word ‘pain’ with this card. And yes, this particular Three does represent pain, but it’s also an incredibly misunderstood card. I always see the Three of Swords as a mark of strength – yes there has been suffering and rejection and fear and a host of undesirable emotions, but this Three shows that you also have the ability to surpass and move through anything negative that you’re currently experiencing in order to embrace an incredible new beginning. This week you may experience the energy of the Three of Swords first hand. Don’t be afraid of it. The most powerful thing that you can do is sit with your feelings and allow yourself to really feel them and process them. Once we feel our feelings, they release instead of getting stuck in our bodies when we try to deny them. This week, be gentle with yourself. Practice the art of self-care. Do whatever it is you need in order to feel loved, safe, secure and warm. Above all, be honest with yourself. What does your heart really want? Why are you suffering? Is there an active step that you can take which will help to alleviate your feelings of sadness, pain or grief? Once you know what you need to do, be brave and take the first step. Don’t be afraid.
