Wildwood COTD : Seven of Arrows

Thursday’s card has not far to go, even if Thursdays’ child does! Given that the card for today is the Seven of Arrows, you can see from the image that she is not really going anywhere. I can’t figure out if she’s acting the part of the damsel in distress, or if she’s genuinely really hard done to.

Card of the Day
Seven of Arrows ~ Insecurity

Arrows in this deck are Swords in the RWS, so it’s all about communication, sometimes miss communication either sent, or received. How will you react to this miscommunication? This lady has acted all insecurely, but will you?

Do you have all the facts? The best way to act or react is by making an informed decision. Do you have all the facts? Do you want all the facts? Or are you afraid?

Fear can make you do some very strange things, or act out of character. The fear aspect makes me think of the rune, Uruz, a rune normally associated with Strength, but if you don’t have the strength or undertake a task that causes you fear, you become slow, immobile.

However, the best way to overcome such fears is to understand them and acknowledge the reasons for them, so you can stimulate the process of establishing a secure and healthy emotional foundation. From there, you can begin again.

So today, with the Futhark Runes of Odin, the Wildwood and a good wind behind you, what do you aim to accomplish today? I hope it is good! And I am here if you need me.
