Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Eight of Swords

Eight of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Emotions maybe tied up in knots today, but don’t let that overwhelm you. Go on about your business as if no one is trying to push your buttons or refuses to listen to your side of the discussion. Stay calm and ignore the negative tone of others. It seems as though everyone got up on the wrong side of the bed today. There’s no sense in letting others take their frustration out on you. Nor should you take yours out on them.

Additional Insight:

Stick to yourself today and remain quiet. Don’t share your opinions, don’t interject your assessment or share your review of someone else’s topic. It’s ok to be a little anti-social on this volatile day and tie yourself up with detailed projects that you can work on alone.

You’re not going to gain respect by spreading your overly critical opinion in this atmosphere. Everyone is feeling unheard and not understood. We’re in the middle of the Mercury retrograde where all conversation is a struggle to grasp and comprehend. It’s better to sit this one out while the conversational energy is pulling on all sides and creating confusion.

After eight o’clock tonight, things should settle down and peace can be made. Don’t get into deep conversations of any kind until then. Even the most mundane topic can lead to miscommunication and angst. Arguments aren’t what you need right now. So simply nod your head and keep your mouth shut! If you feel the need to explain your lack of desire to talk and curtail the conversation, do so calmly. Make up an excuse to avoid the debate, being tired and overwhelmed is one that’s totally understood by everyone. And it’s not really untruthful for this day.

Replace the angst you feel around you with compassion. Try to understand that everyone is feeling the same bewilderment. Try to ignore the tone of voice, the angry words and the knee jerk reactions to avoid conflict. You’ll be able to get through the day with minimal interaction and stress. And more importantly, with limited disagreement that could turn into unnecessary long term strife and struggle. So let that call go to voice mail, don’t respond to every text you receive and don’t sign contracts that make no sense. You’ll be glad you waited till later this week.

Things will be better tomorrow as the fog lifts and the energy hanging in the air will seem lighter and not as combative. But you’ll still need to keep your cool and try to maintain your distance from those who continue to struggle. For now put the headphones in and keep your head down. Focused on something that requires no contact with others and keeps you busy. You’ll get through the day unscathed and be all the better for it tomorrow.
