Don’t negate help from close friends and family, or hiring extra assistance if need be.

The 7 of Swords can point out to someone you know that might not be telling you to the truth, sometimes this can even represent an aspect of ourselves. What must you honestly confront this month before heading onward with the rest of the year? The 7 of Swords can also speak of internal avoidance and the resistance towards self-reflection. It’s important to reflect on what you feel you are protecting yourself from and why. There’s no better time than now to be authentic and clear about your beliefs and choices, but it also requires you to align yourself with your beliefs and walk the walk. Are you focused on supporting yourself in this journey or are you looking to see what others are doing? Focus on your own agenda & learn how to move in silence. Big things lie ahead, the small glimpse you’ve already captured is nothing compared to what the months hold.
