Two cards popped out today- both swords, which can be stabby, but in a most necessary way.
Princess of Swords
Earth of Air, this Princess looks like she is flying out of the earth into the sky, leaving her dust behind. This Princess is cutting through all the mental static and confusion surrounding her. Also, she isn't just thinking about doing something - she is doing something actively. That is the important part. Don't get stuck inside your own head - cut through the chatter! She is a warrior princess who is here to help us battle the Ruach.
Eight of Swords
This card reminds me of trying to cross a rickety bridge that was built when dragons ruled the earth while also trying to do ten other things at the same time. That never turns out well. Too much force applied to small things; too much attention to detail at the expense of the principal and more important points. When this happens we just need to stop and take a look at what is happening, instead of rushing about with no direction. Banging your head on the wall isn't going to help here. This is temporary and we just need to let this go and focus our energies on the things we can deal with right now.
Swords = Ruach (intellect) and it can be a good thing in that we rise above our lower animal natures. BUT! When we identify with the Ruach we separate from our higher parts, higher consciousness - those the Ruach can't comprehend and it wants us to stay with it. So this Princess helps us remember that the mind can be an enemy if we aren't aware of what it is up to and the Eight reminds us this isn't going to last and we just need to regroup and re-center ourselves.
