Moving towards another place, leaving difficult times behind, was my main focus for this card interpretation.
It may not feel like you are moving forward, but you are, things will get better even though you can’t see it right now. Therefore having her passively floating with the water stream, towards a bright supernova, leaving the darkness in her past, symbolizes that recovery and travel. She may not realize it yet, but she is moving forward, on to a brighter future.
An inert woman floats along a stream in space, naked, six swords poised upon her chest above her heart. Her make-up has smeared across her face with many tears, but right now, she cries no more. She is passive, peaceful, floating towards the light. We cannot see whether it is a new planet, offering a new life, or just a bright nebula or supernova, she is travelling ever upward and onward, to a brighter future.
When this card appears in a reading, it is suggesting that you are entering a phase of transition. You’re moving on from hard times and despair, and gradually, things are getting better.
It’s been such a long time coming that you’re having trouble keeping your head above water, but things are improving, even if you can’t see it at the present moment in time. And you’re not quite there yet, but finally, there is light at the end of the tunnel. It’s time to let the hope within you take shape. Don’t quash it for fear that it will lead to yet another setback. Let go of the fear. Set yourself adrift, and trust that the Universe will gently bring you back towards a more positive place, mentally and spiritually.
