from the Motherpeace Round Tarot by Karen Vogel

blues? I don’t sing them.
i tranquilize in their hue,
now my mouth pours truth.
-an iiiYansa J. Muse HAIKU

The Priestess of Swords is a court card in the Minor Arcana of the MotherPeace Round Tarot Deck. She combines the elements of water and air, thinking and emotion, an very powerful message for her querent. When she appears inverted, she warns that your emotions are liable to take a dark turn. She advises against feelings of judgement, criticism, or becoming too withdrawn. Too much reflection on a hurtful past can do that to us.

Instead, be thankful for the hard times, and for the people that hurt you. I know it is a lot easier said than done, and more tears may need to be released to get to that point if it is needed to cleanse the soul. As your scars heal and you understand more about your place in the Universal Whole, you will come to understand that all who have crossed your path did exactly what they were supposed to do, even if what they did hurt! Painful events in life become no more than unique cracks in your vase that give it character. Count your blessings on challenging days.
