Set your burdens down. Sort through them. Look at them from a bit of a distance, and you’ll see that they are not real. Give yourself the spaciousness that comes from quieting your mind. Breathe and relax. You are not alone. Seriously, look at the photo here: There is a key right in the middle of the prayer wheel for god’s sake. How much clearer does it need to be? Your powers are with you, protecting you, marveling at you a little bit. Let your mind relax and be free of its constraints. Write, speak, tell stories about what’s real for you. And let your faith be your shield.
Today’s draw is about overwhelming burdens and coming to the end of a period of great trial; the burdens of the 10 of Wands have been blinding and often not of one’s own making, but we carry them to help someone else. The rune Dagaz signifies both significant transformation and the light at the end of a very long tunnel. We have been strengthened by this journey, and we’ve sacrificed a lot. Now is the time to start looking for what can be let go of without dishonoring self or others; what can be released gently and with respect? You don’t have to drop it like it’s hot, but you also don’t need to keep carrying it.
Good morning, friends! Today’s draw is the 10 of Wands reversed; the rune is Thurisaz and the charms are The Car, The Wine Bottle, The Life Preserver, The Mountain, and The Scissors. It’s time to drop those burdens, people. Seriously. Your mission today is to review all your burdens, everything you’re carrying, and see what can go. Look clearly at all of it, and drop what is no longer serving you. Because here’s the thing: if you don’t drop it, it will get taken from you, and if that happens, you don’t know what else will get taken along with it. Best to do it yourself and take responsibility for it rather than making the Universe do it. Because if Mama has to come back there and handle it Herself because you refused to step up and handle it yourself like the grown-up person you are, ain’t nobody gonna be happy about it.
