Daily Draw - Seven of Swords, Fool, Ten of Swords

Tarot of the Mystic Spiral- Seven of Swords, Fool, Ten of Swords
I think today's set of cards is meant to be a pretty glum crew, but they really aren't.  I recently said some things, and they needed to be said, not a word among them was unkind or untrue, so I feel good about myself.

In the Seven of Swords, I instantly identified with the Minotaur.  He is getting attacked, and in his own home.  That's not right, but what can you do?  Sometimes you are the gladiator, and sometimes you are the minotaur.  Sometimes you are righteous, and sometimes you are the monster, and who wears which label is really a matter of perspective.

The bawdy Fool peeks over his shoulder, though, as he sneaks away from the scene.  He's a got a secret to tell, and if you are lucky he'll share it before he disappears over that edge.  He is worrying far too much about what is behind him and not nearly aware enough of what is coming up.

He can only run so far though, and not fast enough, as the Ten of Swords catches up to him.  On one hand, this is a sad moment.  On the other hand, all the fear and trepidation is over.  We know what we know, and it may be bad, but it is all out there.  This card looks pretty gruesome, but has a true silver lining in that there really is nowhere to go but up.

These cards are all related to the element of air, communication and how we use our words, so I can know that they pertain to how words have been flying around my world.  Since they are all air, they neither reinforce nor weaken each other.  It's all a bunch of air, shiftless as the wind, so I can expect this to bowl over quickly, and I have to be aware of the possibility most of it is in my own head.  They have no substance or grounding, no fire to quicken them, no water to sluice through emotion.

The Shadow card is The Chariot.  This is my Life Purpose card, and as a Shadow card I feel it is here to tell me this is just a piece of a lesson I need to learn right now.  Successfully navigating this will put me a little further up the ladder of ascension, or at least that is what I am telling myself right now.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
 These cards are from Tarot of the Mystic Spiral by Giovanni Pelosini and Giuseppe Palumbo, published by Lo Scarabeo.

  1. I Finally Got Helped !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out.. I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email or Call/WhatsApp cell number +2347012841542 Website (
