The Tarot of Refusing to Apologise

I’ve been absent from this blog for quite a while. A lot of heavy shizz has been going on in my life for the last few years. That’s just how it is sometimes, for some people. I needed to focus on my personal life, and then I needed time to re-cooperate and re-generate. But now I’m ready to re-emerge back online.

In preparation for this revival I’ve been re-reading my old blog posts and am shocked at how often I apologised for not posting how and when I thought I should. How very female of me. Clearly something has shifted during my absence because I no longer feel the need to apologise anymore. Anything I have to give is a gift.

Carrie Fisher is another woman who learnt the long hard way not to apologise for being who she was. As many of us are currently mourning her loss right now it seems apt to illustrate this topic with one of her more famous quotes.


Read on for the Tarot of Refusing to Apologise…

Not posting as often as I feel I should…

9 Swords

Nine of Swords: Guilt

Believing you have to post all the time or you’re not blogging right…

The Hierophant R

The Hierophant Reversed: Social Pressure

Feeling embarrassed at how much I apologise…

The Fool R

The Fool Reversed: Embarrassment

Doing what feels right for me even if others disagree…


Strength: Standing up for myself

Living life without apology…

Queen Swords

Queen of Swords?

This is a tricky one. I can’t find anyone who’s written on this topic. However, the Queen of Swords rules thinking, especially for women. And the sword she holds would be great for cutting herself off from listening to criticism.

What do you think? Is the Queen of the Swords the card of refusing to apologise?
