A Reading by Laura González
The month of November brings us: The Seven of Wands, The Ten of Swords and The Sun.
In this combination we are told that we are currently feeling the need to defend our position and boundaries; that transformation in our mind is imperative and that once we find new ways of thinking happiness will be there for us!
I jokingly call number seven the GPS number as a fun way to explain its energies, all sevens are present when we benefit from ‘recalculating’ our situation, they come to remind us that we need to take a look to where are we heading and to evaluate if the work we’ve done has been beneficial for us, in this case the Seven of Wands illustrates that we are very passionate about what we stand for, to the point that it feels we need to explain and defend our position constantly. This creates healthy boundaries and sets a wall between us and those who we perceived as attacking us. Don’t forget though that sometimes the walls we build keep us isolated and away from relationships and situations that could be loving and pleasant. We won’t know until we break those walls! The Ten of Swords visually is not a pleasant card, however mentally is one of the most positive ones, or at least this is the way I interpret it. Swords are all about the element of air and relate to our thoughts and ideas, and being a number ten tells us “this is it!” thinking the same way we had in the past hasn’t take us anywhere, so the message of this card is to let those old ideas die so we can make space for new ways of thinking, for new ideas, to be adventurous and spontaneous, perhaps once we change our mind we can change our reality and we won’t have the need to defend our every thought, word and action. The Seven of Wands say to stand up for what you believe, however you don’t have to always stand alone. And then after the darkness we face on the Ten of Swords, The Sun comes out, we make the conscious decision to be happy and to be able to find happiness anywhere we go. The inner child teach us that as grown people we can be in control of our instincts and that what makes us feel so passionate in life, and still have fun while doing it. Now this child is also surrounded by a fence, but not a wall per se. It’s about standing for what you believe without sacrificing your well-being and happiness in the process. We are still staying alert, but not isolated. Be you and be happy! Best of Fortune to you all!
