I am hoping that today’s cards refer to the world community pulling together in response to the world financial crisis, and that there isn’t some other crisis popping up in the news today (I haven’t looked at the news yet as I write this). These cards could be interpreted in a negative way, that there might be some melodrama surfacing in world news today (and this is the second time in the last few days that I’ve seen cards come up that related to potentially negative world events), but I would rather focus on the Major Arcana card here: The World, and its positive aspects. The world is vulnerable, as vulnerable as the naked woman on this card, to catastrophic events, but the flip side of that is that our world has a tremendous capacity to come back together after negative events.
But what if we interpret these cards at the level of an individual? Think about how The World and the Ten of Swords are really the same. The Ten of Swords has to do with endings (albeit negative ones) and new beginnings. Isn’t it true that sometimes a melodramatic negative ending leads to a new beginning that is more than we could ever have hoped for, a whole new world of possibilities? If this is true for you today, try to focus on that new world of possibilities, and release the drama.
