It’s all in your head
When we put it that way, it has a dismissive, judgmental quality, as if we are blaming someone for making up an illness rather than acknowledging the fear, anxiety or mental illness that might be underneath it. Actually, something being ‘all in your head’ might be a good thing. Some pretty nifty stuff can happen in there.
Individual perspective can be a powerful thing. Shift the paradigm for a minute, and your whole world can change – at least for that minute. “All in your head” isn’t simply an out of hand dismissal of a hypochondriac’s complaints. Neitzsche put it that “There are no facts, only interpretations.” Or as Tim Burton put it “One person’s craziness is another person’s reality” Of course, there is Morticia Addams’ “What’s normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.” and my favorite, J.K. Rowlings’ Deathly Hallows Dumbledore line “Of course it is happening inside your head Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?” Perception so influences our interaction with reality, some have argued that perception is reality.
Put together, these cards remind us of that. Individually, the card suggests which lens of perception is the best filter to fit the energies for you this week.
Left: King of Swords. Swords are connected to the element of air, mental ability, intellect. Try to let your head rule. When you feel a rush of emotion, that is your cue to stop…look…analyze. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot, throw the baby out with the bathwater, or cut off your nose to spite your face or any of those other classic cliches. In Feng Shui, fire destroys metal, so don’t let passion rule intellect this week.
Center: Queen of Cups. If you selected this card, your individual advice is the opposite of the King of Swords. Cups are associated with the element of water, our closest relationships, intuition and emotion. If you chose this card, let your heart lead the way. Logic and science are important, but they don’t rule affairs of the heart. Love is love is love. Let the intellectual guards down, and let your heart out to take a peek around. Take a sip from the cup of life and humanity, then give a little back to the community well. Some small act of caring for another living thing, even watering a houseplant or fixing someone a favorite meal, or forwarding a cat picture on social media just to say hi…any and every little thing … feeds your heart as well as theirs.
Right: Ten of Pentacles. If you have been reading along, but chose this card, your call is to do both. This card has a very balanced, contented feel around it. Ten is the largest number card of the suit. Pentacles (in some decks coins) speaks to the physical and realm, so this max-coin card may bring a little money luck BUT it is also a reminder that money can’t buy love or happiness. Use your head to manage physical realm money and career things, but look to your heart when dealing with private live and loved ones.
