Resolving of problems and new opportunities
Today we have the King of Swords in the Golden Tarot and Yemanya in the Goddess Guidance Oracle. Yemanya (pronounced Yeh-MAHN-jah or Yeh-MAHN-jee) represents an African and Brazilian goddess of the sea. She is depicted here as a mermaid. This card is encouraging you the celebrate your successes. There are doors that will be opening for you shortly. When these opportunities come to you it's important to dive in without hesitation. There could be a person who is a successful business person and wants to offer you an opportunity. He's a smart strategist and knows that you don't look a gift horse in the mouth. In other words, you shouldn't criticize a gift even if you don't like it very much. Perhaps there has been procrastination on his part and he has been picking at every angle trying to find fault with you. Continue to be yourself and don't doubt yourself. Your prayers are being answered and this is the right opportunity for you. Perhaps you have been disappointed and haven't felt supported, well you will be able to wash all that doubt away. You deserve an apology if you have been treated with a lack of respect. There have been many offensive words sent in your direction. Even an apology can't heal all your wounds. You have nurturing and loving qualities and are a protector and supplier to others. Give yourself a pat on the back and recognize that you weren't responsible for the way they felt. We as people need to see the point of change. We all want to resolve the negative emotions and frustrations that we all feel. Perhaps you were just misunderstood in your rehabilitation efforts. Continue your efforts and don't give up even if you are challenged.
See this quote by Elizabeth Cady Stanton " To throw obstacles in the way of a complete education is like putting out the eyes; to deny the rights of property is like cutting off the hands. To refuse political equality is to rob the ostracized of all self-respect, to credit to the market place, of recompense in the world of work, of a voice in choosing those who make and administer the law, a choice in the jury before whom they are tried, and in the judge who decides their punishment."
