The Two of Swords covers our eyes and asks us to stand down this week. February in general brings a bit of space to breathe, and this card is showing us that our week of examination has come to a close. By now it is likely that you have picked the load to the bone, and unleashed skeletons that have been hiding for years. We are now called to take a step back and allow the manifestation to begin.
Today’s Virgo Full Moon marks the culmination of a cycle that has encouraged our due diligence. With that completion we must release, and wait for further instruction. This can leave us with a tension of sorts. The tension lies between what is true and untrue. The skeletons we’ve unearthed can be separated into those two categories, but the method to the separation is out of our hands. The unfolding is underway, and any idea that we are in control of that unfolding is an illusion. Reality will soon be revealed, and your reaction may surprise you.
Instead we open ourselves as a vessel, primed to receive the guidance that allows our best step forward. The unpacking we’ve done leaves more room for radical movement. It is that radical movement that allows us to feel our freedom.
If you find yourself unable to withhold from action, use that energy to write, tell a story, or daydream your best scenario. The course of this week moves from form to vision. Allow yourself the luxury of some dream time.
May we find our next steps through feeling, and give our eyes a well deserved rest.
