I could use less thinking (wallowing) and more doing. That said, I’m going to sit for meditation right after this.
I’d been bored and restless last night, watching shows on my laptop alternated with reading, but I wasn’t that engaged with either activity. Then I went to sleep and had stress dreams, at least the one right before I woke up this morning was.
Well, onward. I’ll sit. I’ll exercise… I’ll do a little work. Maybe there will be something to apply to today.
Card 1, within: Queen of Wands
- Last seen yesterday in same placement.
- 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: I The Magician, reversed
Introduction: Even when reversed, the Magician is about making higher – and better – use of all of one’s power. The reversal, however, can indicate that one is hesitant about making the necessary changes in order to use their power in a more spiritual and more effective manner. (Like getting up & doing yoga rather than just eating breakfast for example?) Consider what it is that you are afraid of. Is it that others may not like “the new you?” You’re right, they may not. However, this is no reason to not step into who you really want to – and are meant to – be.
General: When the Magician shows in reverse, you may be overlooking the synchronicities, which could be pointing you in the direction you most want to and need to go. Again, when this card is reversed, you could be doubting yourself unnecessarily and causing yourself (and those around you) problems as a result.
Work: Receiving the Magician in reverse can indicate a resistance to needed change when it comes to your working life. The truth is that nothing stays the same forever, change and newness is a part of life. Don’t cling to the past.
Keywords: Unable to hold a thought, an intent, a vision, a plan, unable to focus your will. Not utilizing your gifts or working to develop your potential. (Sounds right. I did get some work done yesterday but I feel increasingly vague, operating in an isolated vacuum.)
Card 3, advice: King of Swords, reversed
Keywords: Letting thoughts, fears, doubts get the better of you and harm you. Supporting your doubts and fears with your thoughts and actions. Holding an image of failure.
