Today’s draw is the Eight of Swords, aka the “cut the crap” card. Interestingly I drew this card to represent the 11th house of friends, hopes and wishes.
This is the stage where you gather with your peeps, it is traditionally ruled by Aquarius which governs more territory than we’ll cover now, but which includes astrology. Ping!
Who’s the dead weight? We’re not talking a “bad person” here but we’re talking about that friend where you do all the heavy lifting. You call them, you try to get together, you send the birthday cards…get the picture? Now sure, sometimes in relationships there is an initiator, I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about that situation where the energy only goes one way: Out.
Our Eight of Swords asks us to meditate on those social situations which are keeping us stuck in either the past or in a certain physical place. Stop trying to figure it out. Your feelings are your best gauge of whether to stay or go. People don’t act the way we want or even the way they should. Free yourself.
