I held out as long as I could, but I gave in; I bought my first Halloween decoration of the season. She’s the cutest little skeletonized gnome! She even has a black cat, just like my little boy! Go check out the Insta for blog updates and little tidbits I can’t exactly turn into a whole ass post. (Follow me @the_drunken_witch on Instagram)
But onto what we came here for!
Today’s card is the Eight of Swords. I love the imagery in this card. The swords raised in defiance to the storm above, the storm itself almost personified with its own face. In any other circumstance, I would be wary of the storm’s face being skeleton, but this whole deck is skeleton people so we can’t exactly take an obvious warning there.
Eights represent movement and change. Swords are thoughts and mentality.
With the coming election for America in just about a month, I’m sure we’re all riding a wave of anxiety and rage as we’re forced to try to write the wrongs that have plagued the country for the last few years. This is the time of year were we can make a change, we can make a movement. We can do what’s best for ourselves, our communities, our country. After the debacle that we unfortunately call the presidential debate, there is no reason we cannot all show our individual power in voting to keep this world from plunging down a road we cannot return from.
Register to vote, vote as early as possible, and continue to pressure your friends and family to do what is right.
We’ve pulled these cards so far and we’re making quick work through our deck.
