How did I get a reversed card? I was keeping them all so carefully upright. The cards sort of jump out of my hands sometimes though. They are long enough lengthwise that I can barely shuffle them, which I do diligently the 7x recommended before each, daily reading.
Card 1, within: Queen of Wands
Creates an environment of spirit (growth, change).
Introduction: The Queen of Wands is one of the most fertile (metaphorically and literally) and feminine/womanly energies in the Tarot deck. In a reading, like all court cards, she can often signify a literal person in our lives, most often female, and most often with hair tending toward the lighter shades in the spectrum. The Queen brings good energy, and is a positive sign to receive.
General: The Queen of Wands can also refer to a woman who has a lot of fire energy about her e.g. Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. When not referring to a literal person, she stands for getting a lot accomplished, and often, a focus on work/career. The Queen is positive, uplifting energy. When she stands in for a woman in your life, she’s a good friend, who is solidly on your side, even though she may seem a bit self-absorbed. If you are trying to conceive and this card appears, it’s one of the most positive signs that there can be.
Work: When the Queen of Wands appears in a reading about work, you are going to get a great deal accomplished successfully in a short period of time – this is a very positive omen. If you are looking for work, this Queen can mean that a woman (usually with light-colored hair) will be instrumental in helping you find employment. All in all, things will be looking up professionally.
Keywords: Shaman, witch, powerful shapeshifter. An environment where growth and creativity and the gifts of the true self are cultured, cherished, upheld and encouraged.
Card 2, without: 10 of Wands, reversed
Introduction: When the 10 of Wands reversed appears, it’s important that you are completely honest with yourself and everyone around you now. No one is served by being deceptive. If you feel that somone who is important to you is being dishonest, you may well be correct. However, be certain before confronting anyone; and sometimes a confrontation is not necessary at all. Take it slow. You may be “stressed out.”
General: When the 10 of Wands appears reversed, you may be tired, dealing with delays, and feeling overstretched. This is not necessarily something that you need to push through. You may be far better served by taking a break. Even a short few hours to relax and de-stress can be helpful. Seek out upbeat people.
The 10 of Wands is the Wheel of Fire. It is creative and destructive, powerful and transformative. It is heroic and noble but prone to corruption and tyranny.
Failure, destruction, shattering, being singed to a crisp, these things are all on the outside of the wheel, but in the center your soul is immortal and pure. Hold onto that idea amidst the shifting and changing energy around you.
It’s a real Wand Kinda Day is that it?
The suit of Wands is generally associated with the element of fire. Not surprisingly, astrologically, they are associated with the fire signs of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. In some decks you will see literal depictions of fire in the art of the cards.
As a broad generalization, Wands relate to career and employment issues, whether for the querent or for those around them. Wands also relate to movement and possibility in our lives and are not always related to business or career.
Card 3, advice: 10 of Disks
Keywords: Success in bringing about change in the world. Look at all the spheres balanced on the scale and see that as some go down some go up, they are constantly balancing and adjusting, these are all of the aspects of life, good and bad and they make up a beautiful whole. Abundance, wholeness, positive thinking, acting feeling, seeing. Plan and support the reality you desire. Climb obstacles.
Introduction: The 10 of Pentacles is a very positive omen. It can mean that your material wishes will be met – perhaps to a degree that you would not have thought possible, and that in general, things will be going exceedingly well for you. Security in all forms is at a high ebb.
General: The 10 of Pentacles in general says that you have a great deal to be thankful for. Relationships of all kinds, finance, health, all should be going well. Consider how you got to this happy situation. Make the best of it, and be sure to share what you have, even if it’s only a kind word spoken to someone in need. We get back what we give out.
Work: A raise in pay or a better position may come to you out of the blue when the Ten of Pentacles appears. You are very likely to enjoy this new situation. This is also an excellent omen when you are looking for work.

The Ten of Disks shows great and final solidification. The Ten of Pentacles usually indicates financial gain, often a lump sum of money, or that the desired outcome manifests.
Amazing!!! I’m going to meditate and then get to work. I’m on that pattern. Exercise (probably yoga again) will happen later.
