I was talking to a friend recently, and noting what I consider to be one of the most challenging parts of parenting adult children: knowing when to speak, and when to keep your mouth shut. It’s like from the time they turn twelve for the rest of their lives, the whole scene is a exercise in Zen and self-control. It doesn’t lessen much as they age, from what I can see.
Today’s Tarot forecast is the Page of Swords or Prince of the Rushing Winds, associated with Earth in Air. Ideas (Air) begin (Page) to materialize (Earth). The caveat is that the ideas may or may not be sound—no telling at this stage! Are you trimming trouble from your world or simply running with scissors? Time tells.
Swords suggest conflict. With the page of Swords in particular, I’d watch to make sure all the facts are in and carefully weigh situations before alienating others.
The Page of Swords doesn’t know it all. He just thinks he does, which can get a person into trouble, you know? If in doubt, observe a while instead of running amok with the mouth. Otherwise, it could be costly.
This isn’t to say you don’t have sound ideas now. Absolutely! But the whole picture is not fully developed, and may not be for a while. That’s fine. Let it come together in due time. For now, make like a scientist and gather data. When it’s time to act, you can be confident of your observations and prepared for the outcome of speaking to them, having weighed it out and found confirmation in advance.
Walk carefully and mindfully when carrying scissors. Let’s not put someone’s eye out, okay?
How are you doing with minding the mouth?
