November 10, 2016–Communication is key today. How fitting that a card associated with communication (swords) is drawn. However, with this card being in reverse, we may want to proceed with a little caution in communicating with others today. Likewise, we may come into contact with a lot of complainers today or notice a lot of negative attitudes.
The energies of 3 are all about communication–whether that be through vocal expression or the written word. Although 3’s are creative and quick thinkers, today may be one of those days to exercise caution in expressing opinions. Our thinking may be dull. We may have trouble expressing our feelings and creativity. The Queen of Swords in Reverse indicates that we may want to keep our opinions to ourself. It might be a good idea to “think before you speak” or “bite your tongue.”
If you have the energy of a 3 (born on the 3rd 12th, 21st or 30th) you’re a natural at communicating with and connecting with people. However the shadow side of that as expressed by the Queen of Swords in Reverse is feeling frustrated when others don’t embrace your ideas or have ideas that differ from yours or simply don’t understand what you are trying to communicate.
The Queen of Swords in Reverse also reminds us to listen to others. We may can be quite stubborn at times and think we know all the answers. Be aware of nitpicking others or scrutinizing their ideas or work.
The energy of three can also express creativity and joy. However, the Queen of Swords in Reverse reminds us to be aware of being dramatic and moody. We might have tendencies toward hurt feelings if others don’t agree with what we think. Remember, we all have opinions and ideas. The key is working together to find common ground.
