Tuesday, First Week in Lent

Today I have pulled a card about the story in John which Jesus violently chases away people who are selling things in the Temple: “He made a whip of cords, and threw all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew their tables. 16 To those who sold the doves, he said, “Take these things out of here! Don’t make my Father’s house a marketplace!””

I asked the tarot: “What is unholy to me and do I want to remove from my live with violence?” As an answer I have pulled Five of Swords from the Tarot of the Secret Forest. I am afraid it is a gloomy card again. But then it can be because the card shows what is unholy to me and what I want to remove. I thought it would be easy to get the meaning of this card, but it was not. But in the end I got the message, and indeed it is something that makes me very angry. 


The hedgehog on the card walks tip toing around the heap of little balls; he seems to hide behind it. Probably he is afraid to say what he thinks and feels and hides therefore behind the heap. I hate being let astray, when people do not say what they mean. And I hate to be mislead out of fear for conflict (with me or with a third party). I won’t say that I never act like the hedgehog, certainly not, often I am more careful than I want to be and I feel ashamed when I catch myself doing it. When it happens to myself, when I am the victim and being led astray, it feels as if the branch on which I am sitting is not there anymore.
