3 of Swords - Something just looks painful... at first. But when broken down, it is easier to deal with. Swords are about thinking - so something in our thoughts has caused us pain. So, what in our thinking is causing us to hurt? When we can see what our thoughts are doing then we can try to stop that train of thought. Release the painful thoughts and replace them with positive healing ones.
Alien - (I have to admit, I have been looking forward to seeing this card since I bought the deck LOL) So, Aliens show up and at first many many bad things happen. Your kid hides him in the closet or you end up building mountains out of mashed potatoes at dinner. But eventually, you find a way to communicate with your Alien and find a way to help it home. Communication!
So today, keep your thoughts in a peaceful order and try to do things with love and compassion. Otherwise, you may end up with a thing bursting out of your chest or perhaps a uncomfortable probe stuck somewhere....
