Today is Friday and we have a rather delicate message, in the form of the Three of Arrows. It carries the key word of “jealousy” and with it, a cautionary piece of advice.
Friday nights are often the start to the weekend and for some, that is where the problems can start. Remember, that Arrows in this deck are Swords in most RWS / WCS decks. From a wrong word said in a semi drunken state, to blaming going off with the wrong partner on drink to saying something out of turn or letting someone get under your skin for whatever reason, jealousy can hit at any time and its causes can be infinite. Social insecurity is something of a regular cause for it.
The trick, is not letting the negative feeling burn us, which is what might happen here if the fire in this heart is not extinguished soon. However, it is bleeding, so the fire is probably of lesser consequence to the bearer. But probably not to the tree supporting the heart in question.
Now, what to do about it? Usually, with a fire, you’d pour water onto it: can we do that here? In truth, this might not be any exception. Letting the emotions pour out so that they can be dealt with and discussed, rather than just with logic, which is what the Arrows hint at. Also, keeping things to yourself probably won’t help. The longer you keep negative thoughts in your head, the longer the fire might burn.
There will always be someone who has more, who are more gifted with good fortune. The book suggests that healing balm is humility, forgiveness and acceptance, even in the face of bitter rivalry and anger. And that is the hard part: refocusing your energy into a positive and creative momentum in your own life.
