Robin Wood Tarot
You awaken in the middle of the night from some disturbing dream and find you cannot go back to sleep. In the darkness and quiet all of your fears, anxieties and guilt come tumbling out as surely as if they were monsters under your bed.
Thoughts and beliefs you shove deep down all day long finally have a chance to dance about your head as your lay there trying to regain a sense of control. 9/swords is about the misery we put ourselves through.
When day comes we walk through our day bleary eyed and incredulous about the horrible feelings that dissipated with the rising sun. 9/swords calls us to face those nasty little night terrors and work to put them behind us because there is no use or good or healing in making ourselves feel horrible.
1. Sometimes I lay awake at night and have these kinds of thoughts...
2. On a scale of 1-10, how silly are these thoughts of yours? What would you say if your best friend told you the exact same thing about herself? How do these thoughts continue to hurt you?
3. 9/swords can also come from a feeling of helplessness about an aspect of our life, what do you think this might mean for you and do you think its true? If the thoughts are not objectively true, why are you still having them?
4. Feelings of guilt can spring from something outside of your control, or is a call to action. Think about any guilt you harbor, which one is it?
