Wildwood CotD : Seven of Arrows ~ Insecurity

Today our CotD is the Seven of Arrows, with the key word of “Insecurity”. Insecurity within, or is it another case? Time to explore!

The Arrows is one of the four main suits and links to Swords in the Traditional RWS. Sevens are the cards that are more akin to internal conflicts, rather than those that come from others expectations of us. Since Arrows (or Swords) relate to the mental state, we can surmise that this insecurity is more to do with how we’re feeling or thinking, than anything else.

Are your thoughts more of a negative nature? Are you having more of a “I can’t” day or moment, rather than the “I can” thoughts? This is what the Seven of Arrows is implying, that you’re being more of the drama queen, the nay sayer, the negative Betty, than you really ought to be. If you think you cannot do it, you can’t. If you think you can, you can!

For me, this card shows up a little insecurity that I have about the impending birth. Now that I’m at the 39 weeks stage, the realisation of what my body physically and mentally has to go through, is hitting home and I’m as prepared for the unborn daughter as I am ever going to be, thanks in part with the help of my parents in preparing a lot of the baby stuff I already had, friends for giving and donating baby girl clothes when I’ve got boxes upon boxes of boys clothes.

My two sons are all excited, they keep asking if their little sister is on her way now. My answer is no, not quite yet, however, with the amount of elbows and knees I’m feeling, I don’t feel she’ll be long. The labour that is due to hit is the part that has me insecure. I know we’ll both be okay on the other side, it’s the journey to that point that I am trying to not let bother me, and I’m trying very hard at that right now!

Combing this seven with Blaise, I feel that I’m being told to chill out, relax. I’ve been here before, twice. I’m more than capable of doing it again and I know what I want to have happen, but I will be pragmatic about it. Have a good, relaxing weekend, for I intend to! It may be my last for a wee while.

    Hey, you’ve done it before and you will do it again! I think this card is telling you to remember your strengths and get on with it, and I can take a few messages myself from that as well…

      Yeah, but I got really nervous with the 2nd around his due date, and I think that “kept” him in for 10 more days! I really need to be busy with something else, other than thinking about the birth, or have the birth hit this weekend so I don’t think about it!

      I’ve my moon in Gemini…. and being Pisces, I think and thank and then over-think things! Block my own success with the amount of thinking I can do 🙂

      But you’re right, I need to remember my strengths: I CAN do this, done it before, survived it, been strong through it. I can and I WILL do it again 🙂

      Thanks Catherine! <3
