Use your mind wisely.
The Ace of Swords follows yesterday’s Ace of Wands, beginning the week with lots of primal energy.
Sasha Graham observes that the sword (representing the mind and word) can be used to defend or to attack.
It is a struggle at the moment, given my country’s political state, to avoid negative states of mind and comments that are counterproductive. It’s simple enough for one who chooses to just ignore the problems, and to pretend that they do not exist (or to pretend that we do not have an obligation to mitigate them). The difficulty comes in finding a way to abide in positive states of mind, while facing the facts and telling the truth.
I have not yet found my balance on this endeavor. This Ace turns up today as a reminder to keep on trying.
