Tarot #24: Interference, filter the static to find the picture


Unforeseen obstacles, details or seemingly insignificant side notes have positioned themselves in the path and scattered thoughts, plans and energy, as a mislaid brick will trip an overburdened person, sending carefully balanced items flying from out flung arms. There is no one to blame, and the scattered pieces can be gathered and repaired, but energy and focus are lost in the process. The challenge is to bring focus back to the task, by assessing the situation quickly, so as not to lose momentum. Solutions rather than blame should be sought. The plan is viable, but needs calm, thoughtful action and clear vision to proceed.Image result for 8 of swords tarot mary el

There is a need for a change of perspective in order to perceive the real barriers to progress and separate them from the illusory obstacles created by fears and repetitious behaviors that keep you from moving forward. You can’t see the path unless you can truly open your eyes and realize what is blinding you.

You are uncertain how to proceed in a project due to trying to account for all the possible problems far down the road. Better to begin knowing the immediate problems and move closer to what awaits you, so have a better point of view for problem solving.


The clear pane of your mind has been shattered and scattered by distraction. Your work lacks focus or you have started too many projects, and your mental resources are diluted. You may need to organize, prioritize, delegate and consolidate your work in order to manage things with more clarity and intentional purpose.

You believe you are tucked away in a comfortable place, well protected and safe, but, as it is in most situations, security is an illusion that keeps you from exploring and experiencing your life. It is time to come out of your chrysalis and spread your wings.
