Stop and take time

Here’s an interesting reading, from this morning’s cards:

ODW 11.03.13

King of Swords – 2 of Cups – Queen of Swords

I can’t help but see this as Steve and I, although it’s quite odd to think of either of us as “swords” types. I suppose we both have assumed more of an analytic approach to things lately; working on a routine to go through with bubs every night, researching optimal sleeping conditions (swaddling, white noise, and the rest of it)… and more than likely not putting as much time and effort towards our relationship. You can see Steve is in problem-solving mode, looking straight ahead, and taking charge, while I am planning for the future, dreaming of things we will all do together, and the life our wee one will have.

This is what I really like about tarot: most of the time the cards don’t tell you anything new; they’re just very, very good at pointing out things that may have slipped your mind, or reminding you of another perspective on a situation. In this case, I totally agree that Steve and I need to take a little bit of time for each other. Find room for some tender moments together, among the diapering, feeding, and shushing to sleep of the new member of our family…
