9 of Swords & Ace of Cups
~Fear can cripple us. Fear of the unknown, fear of the powers that be, fear of what may be coming next can keep even the bravest soul up at night. Fear is a form of control, power, that is used to keep us in line. The 9 of Swords can be seen as a card of fear. I usually describe it as the inner demons that keep us awake at night. But those inner demons have to come from somewhere. We aren't born with fear & distrust in us, are we? Watching the news on any given day can bring those demons into our minds & disrupt our lives. There's so much hostility & anger being expressed in the world today. To not feel some fear when going to sleep at night would be strange.
Seeing that this is the Swords suit, it does connect with our own minds, but the way I see it our minds are all connected so what brings fear to my mind may be caused by something external to my own life. Turn on the news, look on social media for just a moment & you'll see protests & destruction taking place all over the America. The murder of George Floyd brought out the strong emotions of the country. Anger fills the hearts of many as the head to the streets to "fight back". Our 9 of Swords is met with the Ace of Cups today. Being an Ace, this is seen as a gift from the Universe & usually reveals positive emotions. I don't see that as the case today. Strong emotions can be joyful, but they can be depressing too. Those emotions are what bring us to action, though. We wouldn't be protesting, "fighting the power" if something hadn't happened to get those emotions flowing. That fear & anger is what has moved things in this direction. That's how we overcome this 9 of Swords. We fill our Cups with the emotions we need to succeed. Passion for our purposes is what propels us forward. You know me. I always look for the silver lining. What transpired to get us to this point was a terrible crime, but perhaps it's exactly what we need for all of us to come together & change the world. 👇⬇️⬇️👇 - 7 minutes ago
