The Moon and Son of Wands
The powerful New Moon on the 15-16th has led us to think about what is next. It asks us to focus on our current dreams and what we can do to help them take root.
The Moon card calls for the same thing. It brings about a period of darkness where things are not quite clear. We see shapes start to form, but without light we are not sure what they are yet.
This place of darkness can bring about fear, as darkness has the tendency to do, or it can lead to soul searching, connecting with our imagination, and a deepening of our creativity.
This pathless place is an ideal spot for our artistic energies to emerge. They can flourish under The Moon and we can find creative solutions to whatever might be ailing us.
If you are stuck or unhappy in an area of your life, The Moon will help you sort through your confusion or lack of direction. There may be creative answers that come up and surprise you.
Are you looking for a way to make extra money? Maybe a passion project becomes a side business. Are you having relationship difficulties? Maybe an out of the box solution is what ends up working.
We are creative people by nature, yet we often close this part of ourselves off. We think all paths have already been made by others and there are no new roads to take. However, nothing is set in stone.
Our jobs, relationships, sexuality, our lives in general do not have to be set by others. We are the ones that decide how we spend our time and who we are.
The Moon calls for us to ask: How can we be more authentic? How can we walk a road we pave for ourselves, rejecting anything false or constricting?
The Son of Wands is a guide for us when navigating the darkness of The Moon. He is adventurous and youthful, egging us on as we move through the night.
He is confident, encouraging, optimistic and has good sense of humor. He has healing energy, standing up for those who are vulnerable and need support.
He represent our inner ‘white knight,’ grounded in strength and kindness. Pushing to do what is right when faced with questions or moral dilemmas.
He is the best parts of all of us and this week we will connect with his energy as we move through uncharted territories. We will discover where we want to go with our lovely guide leading the way.
One important thing to note about the Son of Wands is his powerful message about perfection. He warns us that perfection hinders progress and wants us to move forward, accepting we will make mistakes. He asks us to feel our way instead of carefully calculating each step.
If we really take in this message about perfection, we will move forward with much more ease. We will not get bogged down in self-critical thoughts, but instead move forward with our imaginations and desires.
Let yourself dance through the dark and soon you will see the stars shining through. You will step on to unpaved ground and you will be all the better for it.
Mantra for the week: I fearlessly walk through the dark to find my personal path. I do not strive for perfection, but instead let my creativity and strength lead the way.
