In the Cards

"the uranus pluto square" The Ace of Wands is an idea. A spark. The Ace of Wands is a great card to see when you feel like giving up and have no clue where or what or how or why. The Ace of Wands assures us that fire exists. LIFE exists. We exist. We are permitted to hope.

I was writing about the Wands suit the other day, that ALL the Wands are about courage and confidence and the Ace? The Ace, they say, is the embodiment of the suit thus even more so. More hope. More fire. More spark. The Wands DARE.

In the Tarot of the Hidden Realms deck we see a cute fox (well, I think foxes are cute) with his attentive ears and smart snout and oh yes he’s fixated on something over there, in the distant wild, in the Hidden Realm. We can’t see it, we don’t know it, but he’s on to something.

This card is PERFECT for the skies right now. Difficult astrological aspects this week and next. You may feel stressed, upset, at your wit’s end, losing your grip, or maybe you thrive under this weather, as one gal in one of my chat rooms was saying.

And then I drew three SEVENS in a row and a quick Google search will lead you to all kinds of fascinating seven-ology but what I want to tell you about the Tarot seven is this: it is UNCERTAIN. It is not set in stone. It is not done. The Ace of Wands showed us that we’re alive and we’re allowed to dream still. The three Sevens then show the options, potential paths this foxy fire energy can take or that we can follow.

The Seven of Pentacles sits still, resting, and will give birth in the coming months. The Seven of Swords is the night sky, already on his way, but pausing, contemplating. And the Seven of Wands peers up into the heavens, not knowing if she’s been heard but waiting for reply.

We are being shown the unknown here. We are being shown exile and confusion and faith.

Which Seven are you? Does the Ace of Wands provide enough light? And are you clever enough to figure out which road is right?

Wishing you good cards xx
