My card of the day for 9th February is the 3 of Rods which I have taken from Cilla Conway’s Intuitive Tarot.
It seems to me that the 3 of Rods may sit well with the 5 of Swords from yesterday in that they both can indicate that it may be time to explore the possibilities for your future; either in terms of personal development or by deciding that it may be time for you to stand on your own and make decisions that benefit rather than subvert. It is a card that can say that it could be time for you to put yourself first and to show those around you that you are capable of making your own decisions.
The 3 of Swords seems to suggest that you may already know what is right for you and that you could have the ability to make plans and to see them through; even though it may be that you could encounter obstacles in your way. There is the possibility of what could be seen as a great adventure for you if you can take those first faltering steps to awareness of your own potential.
Today would be a good day to make plans and follow them through. It would also be a good day to have a look around you and see who would benefit from joining you on your journey; not as a leader or a follower but as someone who could be on an equal footing with you.
