Card of the Week: Ace of Swords
I decided that, just for the next week or two, I'm going to only post once or twice a week. I've been getting a lot out of my readings, but more so if I don't read too often. I think a once-a-week main reading and maybe one more Wordless Wednesday or other type of posts might be good for the remainder of this month. But I will go back to frequent posting, I'm sure. :)
I've had an influx of creative and work activity the past few days. I've been making things and pondering options. I'm not quite sure what I want to do yet, but at the same time, I'm also just doing things anyway. I've definitely moved away from dithering, at least. I made some Valentine-y and also spring-y soaps for my mom's consignment space, I've given a couple of readings, I sent off a package of soaps and bath salts to a friend who purchased them, and I'm now thinking of doing some website editing for a blogger friend, though I have to work out some details with that, so may not start until mid-late week.
I am realizing that life is to be lived moment-to-moment. I've spent too much time agonizing over things that shouldn't be agonized over. Success may be more triumphant when it means flow and forward momentum without so much fear. For me, this card as my weekly card means the traditional things that the ace of swords means, such as clarity and mental acuity, and also decisiveness. Decisions have power. I remarked to my husband last night how I feel I've consciously and unconsciously avoided and delayed (or reversed) decisions so many times, just to avoid the feeling of fear that comes with making decisions. Simply to avoid pain or avoid the risk of action. The trouble with this stance is that when you avoid action at all costs, you are actually spending a lot of energy doing so--thereby wasting a lot of precious good mojo that could be used elsewhere.
Wishing you all well,
