Card Reading for the Week of October 5, 2020

Three of Swords, Two of Rods, reversed, the Hierophant
Oh boy. It’s going to be 2020 all week long. The Three of Swords represents absence, sorrow, separation, and delay; in other words, everything we have been experiencing during the pandemic. The reversed Two of Rods can carry a similar meaning of trouble and sadness, imposed on us by outside forces.
The Hierophant card, with its collection of religious symbols, can bear conflicting meanings. As a symbol of religious orthodoxy, it can represent inactivity, adherence to ritual, and devotion to outmoded ideas. But as a symbol of faith and belief, it can represent inspiration, kindness, mercy, and forgiveness. Given this choice, I will go with the second interpretation: Be kind. Be merciful, especially to yourself. Forgive yourself for being something other than perfect in your reaction to this sorrowful world. And remember—we’ve made it through another week.
Love to you all, Angela
