"The three of swords deals with the consequences of the choice represented in the Two of Swords. It is necessary to mourn the loss so that you can release the pain and move forward. " - Jennifer Galasso, Crystal Visions Tarot. .
Today, in response to someone's question about the card (on a Tarot Group), I shared a link to my previous post about the Three of Swords. When I drew the general card for today, it showed up in the Crystal Visions deck, so I'm going to share the link here too, it must be the day for it:
Tarot Card of the day - The King of Cups! Strong, wise, patient, kind, honorable, intuitive, intelligent, diplomatic, compassionate. This card can represent a person with any of these qualities or can be interpreted as a situation/feeling. Perhaps you are finding yourself in a position where you have to keep the peace or act as a mediator and/or stern, but loving authority figure. ❤
Friendly reminder that your hands don't necessarily have to be clean before you point your finger at another human being.
But first, let me explain.
I'm not saying that we're free to judge people left and right, nor am I saying that we should ignore the importance of whatever internal work we must face within ourselves.
You always have the right to explain to others (in a productive way) how their actions effect you. Even if you are not perfect yourself. Because no one is perfect. No one has a completely clean hand in anything (for the most part).
So if you find yourself sticking up for a little piece of personal justice and someone has the nerve to bring up your shortcomings in response, all they're really saying is that they can't accept responsibility for their actions and it's easier to thwart the blame back onto you.
You can be dirty as fuck, and still possess the right to tell someone what they're doing is out of line.
As an aside, I am not trying to promote or condone gaslighting. Don't go poking at a lion and blame it when you get bit.
The true meaning behind my point is that if you feel sticking up for yourself is necessary- DO IT. Regardless of wherever you came from, or whatever you've done wrong in the past.
Don't let people use "past" you as an excuse to not accept accountability for their "current" selves.
