9 of Swords - I really dislike this card, especially when it reflects the night I just had ;)
When your bed becomes a war zone and all you want to do is crawl under it. The 9 of swords indicates a head full of dark thoughts that cause us a lot of distress. In these moments we need to center ourselves, take a deep breath and ground ourselves in the moment. We often have no control over things in life but we can control how we react to them.
Chicory/Sustain - Used as a drink and occasional food source for humans it is very valuable to animals as nutrient rich fodder when other crops are hard to grow. Sustain, is the oracle property of Chicory and it speaks to the availability and usefulness of the plant. That usefulness can also be seen in relation to a persons role in the community. Everyone has a usefulness and when we all come together we thrive. Do what you can to sustain others and you will find that they will do the same for you.
So today, look to others to help you ground and center yourself. Sometimes we stay too long in our own heads and we need other people to help us see things "right-sized," again. Get out of your head and let others ease some of that distress!
