Friday, September 5, 2014 – That Pesky Inner Critic

8 of Swords

Do you put a lot of pressure on yourself? Do you self-criticize? Do you criticize your self-critic?
If so, you might recognize the ropes around you getting tighter. The blades ultimately cutting into your flesh. The 8 of Swords is sometimes depicted as a cage — one of your own making. A cage to keep you trapped. A cage to keep you small and “safe”.

Perhaps this is you everyday, with a Capricorn Moon.

Be gentle with yourself today. Perhaps you expect too much. Fight against those negative thoughts.

I bet you could come up with an come-back or upside for every criticism.
