I did draw a card yesterday too but did not feel up to blog about it. It was the King of Pentacles and today I move from Fire of Earth and volcanoes to Air of Air and hurricanes. The Knight of Swords has as keyword ‘penetration’ and is associated with Aquarius. The knight rides straight into the eye of the storm, below him the Great Sea.
For me this is a person who loves an argument and who can be quite cutting and sarcastic. He does not yield. The dropping of the armour is to me more like a ruse, a scattering of his trail. He is reaching for the sword but not yet grasping it though. The albatross reminds us of the poem by Coleridge quoted above where a sailors thoughtless act of killing the good luck bringer turned it into a curse. What is my cross to bear? What are my thoughtless acts? How do I control my temper and my tongue? I have a hard time keeping my focus recently and feel as scattered about as that golden armour of the knight. I need to try and find the calm eye of the storm.
