I’ve always thought that the Eight Of Pentacles represented processing stuff but then yesterday I felt very clear that I should use the Knight Of Swords Reversed to indicate my mental processing has slowed down. So today I thought I’d investigate the Tarot of processing stuff starting with this card…
Knight Of Swords: Mental processing. Being a quick thinker. I talk about this card a lot because this has always been one of my strengths, although not so much anymore. I’ve been the veritable hare rather than the tortoise. The one quick to start and slow to finish. Exhibit A – My many unfinished novels.
Eight Of Pentacles: The physical act of processing. Working on a factory line. Being an apprentice. Editing. Reversed this card can signify obsessive compulsive disorder.
The Hermit: Inner processing. Reflecting. Tuning into your inner voice or seeking counsel from friends.
The Moon: Processing events you have repressed in your subconscious. Coming to terms with deep wounds.
Can you think of any other kinds of processing that Tarot cards deal with?
