This Week’s Tarot Card Reading: Ace of Swords Reversed
Your weekly Tarot card advice for July 16-22, 2018
When you really want something to happen, your instinct is often to do whatever it takes to make it so. This might very well lead to a victory, but the reversed Ace of Swords has a caution for you in such ventures this week. Using excessive force to get what you want is likely to bring a brief and distorted victory, not a lasting one.
If ambition and drive have been pulling you forcefully into what isn’t yet, you’re probably missing out on a lot of what is. Do you find yourself fantasizing about your desires, things that you hope to attain? Is your wandering mind playing out detailed scenarios for how goals might be achieved? Have you gone so far as to consider ways you could manipulate situations in your favor? These are all possible manifestations of the reversed Ace of Swords. Try to redirect that energy into engagement with the present moment, unhampered by events of the past and not overly focused on what’s coming next. The theme card this month, the Hanged Man, wants you to release past patterns, and this could be another habit it’s better to let go of. Besides, if you have to try that hard to force something into being, it’s probably good to question if it’s truly the natural and correct course of events for your life.
