Welcome back to The Daily Pulse!
I found this quote sometime last week that really resonated with me personally and does so with today's mood. Also, if you recognise the author of this quote please write to me, for I am unable to find them.
Healing is an end to the conflict with yourself.
Today's pulse is potent stuff, not for the fainthearted, I sense. Ha! Seriously speaking though, today's pulse speaks of some piercing, earth shattering revelations and confessions that may have already happened or are coming your way. Keep an eye out for them (though I feel you won't miss them even if you tried) and don't get attached to the sense of destabilisation that powerful truths often tend to bring with them. That is why perhaps, as I said, truth is for those courageous of heart, because it will often lead you to face up to discomfort of new knowledge as well as that of having to let go of the old ways of existing.
I am actually not very surprised to see this card come out (furthering what I have been feeling and sensing since morning) because today is technically new moon day (went exact at around 10 am IST) and symbolically, the new moon is about the sudden endings that come about with the new cycle the moon enters in.
This is a pivotal time and today may especially feel super urgent to you. If you are feeling a sense of 'something important', then I am sure you're tapping into this. It may feel disconcerting but might I remind you, with the year that has been, we could all do with a new cycle.
The Ace of Swords is symbolic of the power of truth - either in your mind or in communication. If you are not already, this is a good time to practice and execute speaking that truth that you have been sitting on, out of fear of upsetting others. That isn't helping you, in fact, in the name of maintaining peace, it is chipping off bit by bit at your personal empowerment, feeding into the status quo. I do not say that everything needs to be torn apart, but if the status quo denies your reality, your authenticity and your humanity, the bandaid needs to be ripped!
It may even be that there is a truth about yourself that you have been in denial of, or not wanting to confront, accept, and honour because of the changes it will entail and the feared losses it will bring. Again, weigh the two options here: is maintaining life as it is, at the cost of your peace and health, really that peaceful?
Powerful, empowering shifts are quickly coming our way - some are already here. But, you have to choose to go the way. I hope you find enough love and strength within yourself to do that.
