The Scythe and The Ship are the two cards I drew this morning. At first I felt a little bit apprehensive about this combination, but the more I look at it, the more I feel like it can represent a positive influence.The Scythe is a card of separation, but it can also represent a decision. The Ship is a card of travel and movement, which also carries the idea of separation or leaving something behind.
I think these cards are telling me that today I will make a decision to let go and move on from a situation. I can relate this idea to a personal relationship in my life that has ended, although the emotional attachments are still intact. I believe I am finally ready to make the decision to let go, move forward, and leave the situation behind. The Ship leads to explorations and transformation, which is why I feel that it can represent a very positive influence.
I know that The Ship can also refer to travel or specifically to a mode of transportation such as a car or other type of vehicle, and so there may also be a decision ‘today’ regarding possible travel or something regarding my car.
I say ‘today’ because my intention with the daily card draws is for daily guidance, but I’ve noticed that some of the daily messages don’t materialize until two or three days later. In any case, I will keep the idea of travel in mind as well for the next few days.
