Members of the Fiery Well, don’t forget to check the April Astrology Forecast and see where in your chart this New Moon is activated! What area of business comes into focus?
9 of Swords, Reversed
Are our fears rooted in reality or our own anxiety? Is that a ghost in our closet or a trick of the shadows in our bedroom? Is that a monster under our bed, or just a pile of dirty laundry that smells like one? Does it keep you awake, disturb your slumber or can you roll over and ignore it?
The cards this cycle are less concerned on what is fear, or even what is anxiety. What causes it? Perhaps. Mostly, this 9 of Swords reversed calls on us to examine what is our relationship with anxiety?
In the heat of Aries, in this new Astrological year as we claim our power, and set our intentions.
Can we claim power over what causes us anxiety? In the absence of that, can we claim power over our anxiety itself?
Can we forge ahead with an understanding of, or a new relationship with, our anxiety? Can we glean the difference and learn to know when it’s helping us be safe, and know when it’s keeping us stuck?
Can we know whom anxiety serves more? Us… or someone, or something, other than us?
As someone that lives with massive anxiety and mental health issues… I have no answer to this. Only more questions. And so do the cards:
