One of my favorite rituals is lighting some sage or cedar, clearing the energy of my tarot deck, shuffling the cards and thinking about the week ahead of me. While I shuffle, I set goals, reflect, and invite ease into my week. Then, I pick a card. I hang out with the card for a bit, studying its image, refreshing my memory of its meaning with some words from a tarot book, meditating with it.
This lovely lady radiates knowledge, understanding, and compassion. With her red dress and rooted feet, she exudes an almost sexual sort of confidence. She's fierce in a gentle way, full of fire and passion for life and for others. She's focused on what lies ahead and is ready for the task at hand.
She's got some mantras to share:
"I appreciate and honor my life," she says.
"I attract creative opportunities because I am full of creativity," she affirms.
"I face obstacles with confidence and focus," she states with clarity and conviction.
This lady knows what's up.
I feel like this card serves as a reminder for me to be confident in my skills as an intuitive healer. This card is pretty appropriate for me this week especially, as I conducted healings for two amazing and soulful women who I admire greatly. Their energy inspires me, and the fact that I got to work with them one-on-one in an intuitive way made me super giddy, but a little nervous. Then, I remembered the Queen of Wands. I was reminded to have fun, to enjoy the experience. To stand tall in my skills, to show how passionate I am about what I do.
& as for those readings I did? They went pretty damn well.
I also took the Queen of Wands with me on a meditative journey. In this meditation, I merged with the Queen and seriously felt like I grew a foot in height. I felt like I could do anything: transform, shape-shift, manifest, anything was possible when approached with an attitude of joy and lust for life. It was as though once I was aligned with the positive, anything was possible.
How do you feel about the Queen of Wands? What does she say to you?
