Art: A swan entangled in thorns and swords with skulls at her feet, crying out in pain and panic. Abover her a hummingbird illuminated by brightness moves thru the thorns without being touched. above and behind them a dark figure, the ruler of the thorns moves away, confident in it’s catch.
Impression: The swan was lured into the trap, as so many others have been. but the hummingbird offers some kind of hope.
Book interpretation: ” the little hummingbird gently pushes one branch aside at a time, encouraging the swan to remain calm relieving the light of freedom to the swan, distant and attainable. the eight of swords is a reminder to not waste energy when in crisis, only a calm a steady mind will prevail.”
Commentary: Even though I’ve perhaps overcome trials I am not yet free of them. My tendency to be quick to anger only entangles me more. Be steady, Be aware
