The Two of Feathers always screams of just getting shit taken care of and going through the motions. I can identify with that feeling of just needing to move forward to get through the situation. The person in this card is packing a box in a room that is otherwise all packed up (save the curtains, I suppose). While moving is always stressful on many levels (so many logistics to take care of, so many possessions to sort through, so many decisions–small and large—to make), this card reminds me specifically of post-breakup moves. I’ve been in that situation twice and it makes putting my head down and barrelling through the situation even more of a necessity. I feel like stopping (or even slowing down) will leave me completely overwhelmed and paralyzed.
I did the New Year spread from Beth Maiden at Little Red Tarot and pulled all Feathers (Swords), Bones (Pentacles), and Major Arcana, so it seemed like a good idea to start with what of those three gives me the hardest time: the Swords.
So, here’s the plan:
I don’t have a particular timeline in mind. I mostly want to actually study and write more when it comes to Tarot. I will most likely be using the Collective Tarot and Tarot of the Pagan Cats, since those are the two decks I use, but in all honesty the Collective Tarot is the one that I reach for most.* I guarantee no particular publishing schedule, but hope to do at least two entries a month. Seems reasonable.
I guess that’s all. Happy New Year!
*even if the cards are HUGE
