I felt the need to draw a card today, and since it resonated so strongly for me, I thought that maybe it would for some of you too. The card is from the Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert.
The Eight of Water is a card which indicates taking action to live a life which is true to yourself. As you can see, the woman on the card is swimming against the current, and this accurately reflects how difficult it can be to live in a way which may not conform to what others expect of you or what is deemed by others as “normal”. The most difficult thing to break free from for many people is the past. This card is a reminder that with courage and determination…it can be done. Remember that while it can almost feel crippling to do things differently, that continuing to live in ways which aren’t good for us is way worse.
