Card of the Day -Feb 23, 2012
Today's Card of the Day is the 10 of Swords. This is considered to be the worst card in the pack, but before we jump to conclusions, let us try to look at the positive side of the card. What I see is that in this deck, the Shadowscapes tarot, the card doesn't look as grim as in the Rider Waite deck. Usually the card shows a man being stabbed by 10 swords lying on the floor almost dead. This card shows a woman flying in the air tied to 10 swans. Her arms and feet are tied to a large cloth which is taking her somewhere, to the unknown. It seems that she has jumped from top of a tree.The birds have become vicious; they can tear her to pieces and tear her cloth as well. They are not out to help her, and fly their own way. Circumstances have caused this girl to have a spiraling plunge. When we give up hope, this is how we feel - like there is nothing good in our life. Sometimes we need to pick up the broken pieces when we come to a halt and learn from our mistakes. Look at the positive side of your life. Do not give up hope. Never ever.
