9 of Swords the head-stabby card
Too many thoughts running around in the head. Stress, chaos, too much going on and if we can't find a way to deal with them, they can keep us up all night and mutate into even bigger issues than they really are. When life gets to be too much, take some time by yourself. Open your eyes and your heart and ground yourself. You cannot control everything but you can control how you react to these things.
Cohosh has a very medicinal smell that repels most insects and that is where its oracle name is derived. There are situations where rejecting or repelling something is necessary. Things that can give you negative energy need to be pushed away; draining people or situations and negative self-talk as well. Sitting with this kind of energy is never a good thing - cut ties and move along, let something new take its place.
So today, when you are feeling overwhelmed take some you time. Self-care is so vital to our wellbeing and it isn't selfish! Find a way to center yourself and repel the negative energy we can pick up in the daily chaos of life. Let go of the things you can't control and focus on the things you can.
