Resilience

Justice ~ 10 Of Swords Reversed ~ 8 of Swords ~ 3 of Swords

Right now, it seems the world has been turned inside out. And in many ways, it has. These shifts are happening on a global scale, but also within each of us individually. What we’ve been avoiding, what we’ve been brushing aside, what we’ve been denying is coming up to the surface to be looked at straight on. In the 10 of Swords reversed, our relationship to fear, control, safety and security is all going through a massive test. We think “this isn’t fair.” Because “fair” always wins, because what’s “right” always works out. Our current situation is questioning that. 

The 8 of Swords comes when we trap ourselves in a cycle of fear. Are you giving up emotional and mental control to that fear? Are you letting the panic rob you of your well-being? Are you letting our current climate hold you back? Because the ways you are holding yourself back right now, are the same ways you were doing it before. And it’s time to do things differently. 

The 3 of Swords shows up when our hearts feel broken. But what if you let the sadness open your heart even more? What if you let the fear make you stronger? Who do you want to be in a time of crisis? Think of the generations that have come before us. Think of those who face adversity and the threat of danger every day, not just right now. Think about those who emerge from those situation as heroes. As leaders. 

The Justice card asks us to understand the bigger picture. It reminds us that after the cycle of death, the cycle of rebirth comes. Always. It’s time to have faith. Radical optimism. It’s time to see things in a new light. There is a new paradigm being born and you are being asked to play an essential role. Get yourself ready.
