DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
8 | Bobcat spirit | Life is a mystery.
The bobcat moves furtively and mysteriously, and when Bobcat Spirit appears to you, she brings a powerful reminder that not all things in life can be explained or understood through the power of the intellect. Trying to figure things out, find logical explanations, or predict what will happen based on reason and facts will not provide you with the certainty and comfort you seek.
Bobcat asks you to trust in the Great Mystery and let the secrets of the universe reveal themselves to you through direct experience. Allow your vision to slip into soft focus, and you will see between the lines and observe what has been hidden there all along.
Bobcat Spirit helps you know intimately the pulse of the Divine in the world. Trust in the wisdom and revelations that come to you, yet know that understanding may not come as you would like it to. What you experience through your heart and intuition, which comes to you as the voice of your inner knowing, will guide you now as you accept that secrecy is woven into the fabric of existence.
No matter what, the appearance of Bobcat Spirit is a sign that you are being called to trust, even when what is revealed does not agree with your need for intellectual certainty.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
III | 3 OF SWORDS
One of the most iconic images in the tarot, the Three of Swords displays a floating heart that is pierced by three swords. Above it, there are heavy clouds. There is also a heavy downpour in the background. The symbolism is pretty opaque, and the emotional effect that it has is immediate. The heart is the seat of warmth, affection, and spirit, and the three swords indicate the power to harm, cause pain, and create suffering to what it pierces. This is an image of grief, loss and literally heartbreak. The clouds and rain depict the surrounding grimness of the situation. All these symbols point to the Three of Swords showing a low point in one’s life.
The Three of Swords depicts the message of rejection, betrayal, hurt, and discouragement. In moments like these, we are well served by the mind. If you can think logically about it and prepare for the experience, the impact of this pain may be minimized.
But remember too, that pain and grief are a normal part of life because they make us appreciate what joy and happiness we have, as well as teach us. It is through pain that we learn to avoid mistakes that could lead us into danger and grief. It is therefore a necessity in the journey of life. The Three of Swords, therefore, is a depiction of suffering that is meant to make us stronger, more careful, and more vigilant.
Sometimes life gives us no choice – we are knocked down. But what determines one’s future is the choice of whether to remain down, or rise again.
Sometimes life gives us no choice – we are knocked down. But what determines one’s future is the choice of whether to remain knocked down or rise again. Each little piece of suffering you encounter serves as a stepping stone to finding a deeper meaning in this world. This card comes at a time when you need to prepare yourself for this next stage in life. While the grief may be extremely hurtful, it enables you to forget your past and focus on your future knowing that you have control over what actions you take afterward. Don’t dwell so much on what is troubling you but instead, focus on what is approaching, because you determine your fate.
