..::.. Five of Wands ..::..
Scattered Energy. Conflict. Confusion. These wands seem to be on entirely different trajectories. Something is being called to the forefront to be looked at more intimately. What is it in this moment that feels out of alignment internally? Energetically there are thoughts of a situation that are in question. Which ways are best to move and what is the highest way to realign with ones unique, natural vibration? Lets bring any outer situation or experience back to internal experience. We begin here, in presence, as this is where all this wildness springs from. Wands are a fire energy of movement, passion, ideas, inspiration, and the creator suit. The Five of Wands seems to be floating out of sync with one another, no color to hint at an energy burning brightly…..somethings gotta shift!
As we begin with ourselves and our internal climate first, where do we go from here? What feels off and what doesn’t feel like it is flowing with other aspects of our life? Once that is seen, feel into it. Is it something new or is it something that has been felt for some time now? Whatever is arising now, it is time to use the fire of the wands to create in the way that feels most in resonance with ones path. This may take some time, sit with what is arising, and to truly feel into ones being. This is a wise time to not distract oneself with other things as that will only delay what wishes to be seen. There could be multiple and valid stories to each of your thoughts or feelings about what is happening. On a deeper level, what rings true for you? Whatever it is you do to gain clarity, do that. There is no road map to create space within your being. Meditation and body movement are incredible tools that can help uncover this natural silent space. However, we are all very unique and tap into our ever present space in different ways. As you are with yourself and inquire, allow yourself to navigate all perspectives and feelings which arise. Explore openly and honestly. At times the different perspectives can also cause even more confusion, especially if there are multiple solid perspectives that all feel as though they can be true. Sitting in the depths of our own being in silence can bring up the most clear answer, we know it when it shows itself. Patience and kindness towards oneself will allow any anxiety and fear to dissipate while looking sincerely within. Our connection to our intuition and our honesty with ourself is important for us to navigate. Allow the power of presence to be felt. Words do not always come with realizations of what to do, but an answer will be felt when given space to arise.
Five of Wands is ready to be redirected in action again. Wands are meant to create magic. When wands energy is not balanced and used to full capacity it can feel flighty and directionless. Wands are designed to create, inspire, and create expansive energy within our lives. They are bursting with creation when aligned with the heart. We are constantly carving out our path, each day within our being and the actions that spring forth from our internal self. It ain’t such a bad idea to reflect and contemplate the way in which things are moving. Is one deeply loving the direction of the course, or is it time to make adjustments? We have this incredible freedom to move in the direction of creating and exploring an incredible life. Now is the time to remove that which is not in alignment to move on to a clear trajectory instead of a scattered one. The more tuned into ourselves we are and the more we tap into our depths we will be more fluid with addressing what is out of alignment and what is not. Sometimes…..it takes awhile and that is okay. Eventually we get insight when we are willing to look, when we are honest, and the timing is right. Five of Wands reminds us to dive in, tune in, and don’t get up until you know whats up! Delay will only prolong what is wishing to be seen.

Ten of Wands is almost completely dark with hardly any light shining through. Where once there was momentum moving forward with a goal, this is a time where one has really slowed down and starting to feel the burden of their own creation. This is right about the time where pushing through is most necessary. At one time of immaturity it would have been easy to give up at this point. One is now feeling the slowing down in movement and feeling the burden, but not convinced enough to stop the process of creation. There has been a lot of high energy, enthusiasm, and vibrant activity that has is now burning out and losing zest. This can be looked at as a death of the original idea or plan, or it can be seen as a positive relief. When one begins to work from a neutral space rather than one of high energy that easily dissipates, there is more room created for a long term vision to come into being. Rather than worried about lack of enthusiasm that was once present, one can be more excited that this initial phase of short winded enthusiasm has fizzled out so one can work and move on their dream from a sustainable space within instead of a space that is high energy one moment and low the other. The invitation from the Ten of Wands is to not give in to weariness now. Know that you can continue toward your vision from an equanimous space that is connected to your source energy rather than fleeting feelings. Although the high vibe excited energy can feel as though it can take on anything, it is not the short bursts of energy that sustain a vision or goal over an extended period of time. It is the initial spark of an idea that contains this excitement, but what will actually sustain this over a long period of time while one is working each day toward the vision?
Whether one realizes it or not you are actually in the completion stages of your goal. There has been a lot of preparing, building, energy, which has already been invested into the direction you are moving. Now is not the time to say Fuck It and throw everything away. Know that you are well underway to completing what you have started, but one must take a rest and continue one step at a time. Whatever is the most important aspect of your vision, put the sweet nectar of your energy there first. Everything else that you must do or think you must do is not as important as the main aspect of your vision you wish to see take form. If all the less potent areas of your goal are prioritized first, this will slow down your momentum and take up too much of your time. The invitation is to set some wands down and focus on one or two that you will put your attention to each day. What is of lesser importance can be completed in their own natural time. It is easy to burn out when we try to do it all in one day. The invitation is to move at your own pace, but put your sweet attention on what is of highest importance first. As you reclaim your energy out of all the little tasks that are not of high importance, you will bring to life your original energy of the brilliant vision to begin with.
Ten of Wands is a time where the feeling of quitting may be present, but a lot of this energy is due to putting small tasks ahead of the main goal and also, not playing enough. When we allow spontaneity to move us and we relax instead of putting so much pressure on ourselves we find a flow that is easy to live everyday instead of anything close to mundane and heavy. Although you have so much you want to accomplish, it is as equally important to live while working on visions and goals and not get pulled into tunnel vision. Unless of course the tunnel vision feels in the flow and is not draining on the spirit:) The more we are truly living from a space of love and spontaneity we move in a way that is light and free instead of tight and rigid. When one is tight and rigid, how will the vision or goal turn out with that energy? What energy is being invested into this space of creation? Life and play don’t have to be separate from visions and goals. There is infinite inspiration all around when we are open to life and this can be equally as valuable to a project as working on the project itself. Inspiration comes from spaces that are unexpected and we may find that as we allow ourselves to play and move we ignite a creative fire that adds more to our visions and dreams than we can possibly imagine. Living an inspired life and being inspired by anything and everything will add tremendous value to what wishes to manifest through your unique being. Do not be so quick to undervalue the power of play.

Two of Wands is the action that springs forth from the initial idea and energy of the Ace of Wands. In Two of Wands one will be moving with a steady momentum towards visions and goals that are in alignment with the heart. One is no longer daydreaming about this vision, but actively watering the seeds each day. There is an energy moving now that intuitively knows the path that is being walked is the one that has been waiting to spring forth from the being. This is why there is sustainable energy here and not energy that will dissipate after a short time. Two of Wands is a deep exploration bringing one to a depth that will expand through the vision one has embarked on. This exploration on your creative vision will stretch the being outside of oneself in the way that this creation is not just satisfying his own personal wishes but also inspiring others to embark on what also sets their heart on fire. This is the juicy effect of love 😉 Walking fully in the naturalness of being is blooming in the way of a flower. There is no other way but for the flower to bloom, just as the person must play out what is in the heart. This is the will of the divine.
Something within at this time is feeling expansion. This could come to be through school, traveling, creative endeavors, reading, or anything in you that is ready to open or stretch in a way that is ready to blast open. One is finding that life is showing when its time to expand and when its time to nurture seeds. No methods are needed for ones expansion. Like a flower this is naturally occurring. Now is the time that Two of Wands says yes go on that trip you feel called to take! Research that topic that you have been wanting to get into! Go explore the creation that has been poking at you to uncover! All of these clues are coming now for you to expand and they are intertwined with what you are creating. This will push you to an even deeper compatibility and connection with the vision and goal you are currently working on. As one works in present moment love, the word “work” falls away and all becomes a love making with life.
There is a vibrant energy in the Two of Wands that is inviting one to drop any and all things holding one back from doing what is in true alignment. It is an invitation saying your goal or vision that you are now embarking on is the opening to a much larger portal. One is only breaking open to the majesty of creation. The Two of Wands says you are outgrowing yourself quickly and life is now rearranging itself for expansion. There is nothing one must actively do to expand. There is no practice that can make this happen. Life is naturally moving and expanding within all beings, like the plants are growing we do the same. One doesn’t need to force any type of growth because we learn and grow at the precise times we are meant to. All is unfolding in a divine perfection, it is only the mind that believes otherwise and attempts to interpret, therefore mistakes the divinity of what is for what one thinks should be. All that is allowing us to be here in this very moment is because all has happened exactly as it has for life to give birth to who we are. Two of Wands has magic in store for one to expand through creative work and asking you to follow this flow, allow it to be, and allow the sincere work to come through.

Mother of Wands is a card of tremendous, creative energy that is equally dancing with a firm earth energy. This is assisting an original balance on a current venture. She is strong and grounded with a clear point in focus. The Mother of Wands depicts a snake curled around her eggs and a wand. Her wand is the power within that is creating and bringing visions to life. The eggs are the form that her visions have grown into. They are not ready to hatch yet, but the exciting time is not far away. She is nurturing her creativity everyday and this force she is moving with is unstoppable. She is putting her unique flavor into her work and seeing as she nurtures her gifts and natural passions they are continually growing and deepening. She can see how Grace is moving in her life and this force moves her from sun up ’til sun down. Her energy is bright and firey, all forces are with her to continue the work she knows must come through. The energy that is emitting from her has a high momentum but also extremely grounded and solid, a unique vibration that will continue throughout her endeavor. There is a perfect balance present that is working in harmony to keep her moving consistently in the right direction.
The Mother of Wands has a high magnetism that stems from her healthy and active life. She does not doubt how she moves in life at this time and each next step seems to be moving like water. She inspires others to walk the way they feel inspired to as well. Mother of Wands knows that each path is different and each one is to be honored in its own unfolding. This is a time where life is moving in accordance with grace, or rather she sees grace has always been present. She sees only grace could be moving in her life to appear in all the magical ways it does. Mother of Wands immerses herself in visions that require her fullness, she cannot halfway be involved in something. What she is currently investing her time in will be a success because it is moving from a space of true power and not egotistical pursuits. She is putting all of her energy in one direction, but never closes off to other forms of magic life will drop in her field. Although she is focused she is not one track minded as she knows spirit moves in mysterious ways. She leaves herself open to the voices of the most high. She is highly discerning of energies as they arise in herself or others around her. When something is “off” she allows this energy to move swiftly and faces it to truly allow it to move. She is too in love with life to allow stagnant energies to show up. Her force is in her creative and steady power that have joined together, this will open many doors of opportunity as she keeps her focus on her work daily.
Mother of Wands is a reminder to protect what you hold dear in your heart. Are you living as the Mother of Wands? Strong in your creativity and blazing a unique and authentic trail? Or, are you stifling your creativity and allowing something lesser to be in place of what you actually feel to do? If we truly want to live a magical and abundant life we must put our energy in the direction of that which is deeply fulfilling. Sometimes it is our hobbies that we think are just hobbies, but secretly they wish to burst forth from our being and become a bigger part of our life. Are we protecting our visions? This means are we giving them time each day to bloom? We can only see what we love grow if we place our attention there. Surely you have even 15 minutes a day to place your attention on what is valuable to your heart. Do you know what focused 15 minutes a day can do? It can grow into all day of doing what you love. Life creates a vacuum where you open the door. Let the Mother of Wands ignite the fire in you that is blazing a miraculous trail for your life. There is a mighty power in you. Don’t miss it for something lesser. When we allow ourselves to move naturally in this life we see that grace is moving all the pieces, but we must allow ourselves to trust in life and watch how grace takes over. In fact grace has always been here yet we choose not to see it by siding with that which makes us fearful. grace is moving all the pieces.
Eight of Wands depicts a circle of wands touching at the center, with a rainbow lightning bolt striking from the top. This jolt of energy has been waiting to burst forth. A creative project that has been marinating is ready to be reengaged and come to a completion. This card can also be for a new project coming forth with no distractions present. Only focus with passion is felt at this time. There is a balance here with structured action and creative raw ideas that are working simultaneously for a vision to fully bloom. The opportunity of time and creative flow is strong now.
This is not the time to allow doubt or fear creep in.
What is it that has been stirring inside ready to come forth? What project has been within that is now ready to come into being? With all the strong energy surrounding the card there are no excuses or setbacks now to complete this project. Since there is powerful energy within you now, it is wise not to grab onto another great idea to start something new. The original vision that has been brewing has cultivated many pieces of the recipe to be fully cooked now. Allow it to pour out fully with love and focus to see the magic that arises. You know this creative magic inside that has been felt.
Now it’s time to gather resources that you presently have to allow full fruition of this vision to take place.
The only thing that can hinder this progress is doubt. Many beings will allow excuses of not enough resources, money, or time to get in the way of a vision. If you think something is in your way, then the experience of life will reflect your limited belief system. If you know deeply that you have all that you need to complete a vision, life will reflect back to you this way of seeing. Any challenges which arise are only showing you where you hold doubt or fear in your heart. Allow the challenges to come and move through them. This will expand you with more trust in yourself to complete what wishes to move through. Tremendous energy is present now and you may have many ideas, possibly not sure where to begin or where to continue with your vision. Give yourself the time and space to breath and move in your naturalness, this is always moving you in accordance with your heart.
Nothing needs to be rushed and all will occur in divine timing. Trust and give yourself to life to move you in this stream with grace and ease. All power, energy, and resources are on your side.
One black wand burning a bright light within the darkness. Six wands part ways for one flame to burn through all adversity. Seven of Wands reminds us who we are and to allow ourselves fully to express naturally what we love to do. Pure self expression, without shying away. Are we backing down from our power, or are we fueling the fire that keeps us vibrant and alive?
Seven of Wands is showing us when everyone is saying no to our dreams and visions that we must stand firm in truth. The inspiration that comes from our heart is a pure expression of the divine. This creativity shows up in infinite forms. Many times when we are honoring our path there will be many who try to discourage and condemn the process. The Seven of Wands is a reminder to stay with the truth of our heart against all odds and to not waver because of silly opinions. No one has lived as you. You are the only one who can feel deeply the ways in which you wish to move and navigate freely as life. There are times for earth shattering convictions to stand for our naturalness and will not waver for anyone who tries to convince us otherwise. We must remember the ones who judge our path are the ones who maybe aren’t happy with their own. Freedom to be completely natural and do what one loves fully scares many. The freedom to carve a different path is ours to discover and explore. If one judgement or criticism scares us, what does that say about our true inner strength? The Seven of Wands says to deny those who oppose how your heart wishes to move.
How we feel in this very moment is everything. If we are pining for a better tomorrow or better future we will always be putting our life in the hands of an imagined state of joy. When we relax into the moment, not wait for another moment to relax into….we see there is an immediate content and joy here. When this relaxation in now is felt, we start living a miraculous life. What happens here is there is a naturalness in all movement. We stop thinking so hard about what we should do with our life and relax into present moment creativity. This springs forth the most raw and authentic unfolding which doesn’t need to be planned or strategically executed. The stream of life is already flowing. All we have to do is drop in and start swimming. When we are out of this stream of life we are heavy and constricted where no inspiration can flow. The Seven of Wands says burn bright and stay with this power that is felt inside. This light which burns will always guide us. This light is Grace. Grace moves all that is here. This is why we don’t have to worry or be frightened. We can be as we are.
Sometimes we need courage to swim in the stream of our own heart. This stream of our heart is the same as the life that we think is happening around us. It is simply reflecting our heart. We can be discouraged by others words and opinions. But we must remember no one absolutely no one is discouraging us. When we accept what others say about our life it is only our own thoughts, fears, and doubts about ourself that are coming into physical form. Life is showing us what we see and feel within. So if someone is against how we are living and this has a strong impact, it is because we are still holding judgement towards ourself. Other times our freedom threatens the box another judging us has been living in. They try to control us because they themselves feel conflicted. Courage is needed for the beginning leap of faith to do what feels intuitive and natural for us. However, once we see that the struggle, pain, and conflict is only a ghost we see how swimming in this stream becomes fun. As we expand into this trust resistance falls away as we swim.
