“When written in Chinese, the word ‘crisis’ is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.” -John F. Kennedy
Let me introduce you to the Six of Swords:
Finally, there is movement. There is the feeling of air whipping through her hair and this brings a smile to her face. We can almost feel it as the airship lifts higher above the ground, leaving the old behind. She’s leaving an unhealthy situation behind her, with a little help.
It is okay to have assistance. It is okay to say that we need assistance. This situation is not going to change, but you can change how you see it. We are often the ones holding ourselves back, and finding the courage to proceed is often the toughest part of all.
Enough is enough. You’re just tired of it, and it’s time to get the hell out of dodge. Once the choice is made, action is swift. It’s a new start. The airship can go anywhere and demands its own retrospection within action. The travel metaphor may be an interior or exterior manifestation in life (or both) this week.
This card indicates taking ownership of a decision, finally… Of the moment for action having arrived, finally…
You have only to decide your reaction, how you perceive your choice here: danger or opportunity.
