A Personal Journey Through the Tarot: 7 of Wands
Defending yourself takes time and energy so before you start wielding the weapons it is worth while deciding if it is necessary. If you are confident in yourself there is no need to be constantly justifying your existence or your beliefs. It just does not matter what most people think about you. A lot of people spend most of their time in a defensive position. They assume everyone will be on the attack so they are quick to anger, judgement and frustration. Life is easier if war is not the go to attitude.
Sometimes defending yourself is necessary. If so, then it is worth while being properly prepared to do so. Defending yourself with no skill can be as disastrous as wielding a gun with no training.
Today I draw the Seven of Wands and reflect upon where in my life I need to stand in defence of myself and my loved ones. Do I have the skill to do the job justice? Can those I stand in defence of actually defend themselves? Is this truly necessary?
