Weekly Tarot Card – Nine of Swords Reversed

IMG_2655The mind is a terrible thing to waste…on worries, conundrums, fears, anxieties, thoughts that you can’t control. Or maybe you can control them by refusing to allow them to take over your life. We see a woman waking up from a bad dream (her hands cradle her forehead) and nine swords fly through the dark night above her head. However, in this upside down image of reversal, the swords are on the bottom and the brightly colored flowers of the coverlet on the bed appear up top. The buddha’s lips seem to blow life into these flowers as if to say, “Focus your mind on the beautiful uplifting creations of the universe rather than the dark stratagems elicited from fear and worry. “Don’t worry, be happy.” You are leaving the entrapment of negativity.
