Today’s meditation was skipped because I overslept. That is also why my background in my readings done today is that pale oak color. I brought my cards with me to my aunt’s and did my readings there today, as I woke up really late and had no time to get them done at home before leaving. And, no time to do the meditation either.
Today’s draw is the Knight of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of impulsivity, quick and even aggressive mental acuity, ambition, and specifically when it comes to ambition… the drive to succeed.
In this particular card’s imagery, I also see a bit of cockiness in his smirk. This, combined with the Thera-Pets card for today, is an indication of encouragement.
It’s a “you can do this” message. Yeah, on some days you might not feel as powerful as you do on other days, but it isn’t how powerful you are that fluctuates, only how you feel about yourself and your emotions from one day to the next. That powerful, experienced, amazingly adaptive individual is there no matter what your emotions are saying to the contrary. Some days, you just have to dig a little deeper to find their shine.
