The Six of Wands and The Queen of Swords
We are entering a new astrological sign this week with the start of Taurus season. We are coming out of the fiery energy of Aries and stepping into the more grounded vibrations of Taurus.
Both our cards this week speak to our strength and perseverance. They see all the challenges and battles we have made it through and want us to know our unshakeable fortitude.
The Six of Wands is also referred to as Victory. This card is about fighting hard for what you want and being victorious. It is about taking on an obstacle and winning in the end.
This could be a test you have to take, a milestone you need to pass, a relationship hardship, or a difficult spiritual phase to step through.
Whatever your hardship, this card is here to tell you that you will be a champion. With hard work and passion, you will come out a winner on the other side.
We should feel proud and take a moment to honor the work we have put into achieving our goals. There has always been a struggle before this card appears, so we need to take a moment to rest and celebrate before moving forward.
Pain and confusion could have been heavily present on our path to success. We may feel both excited for our victory and tired from the fight. But please know that you are amazing for all you have done and the Universe is cheering you on.
This card also shows us we have always overcome our most difficult days. No matter how hard, we were able to make it through. So when something coming up in our future seems too hard, we are filled with the strength from our past to know that we can do anything.
Our next card is the Queen of Swords. She can think and see clearly through all the phoniness and she knows what is important in life. She has cut through any lies and removed the armor that prevented her from connecting deeply with others.
She understands that vulnerability is a strength and experience makes you stronger. She goes straight to the heart of matters and is direct with her approach.
Though she is tough, she has compassion for herself and others. She can use her sharp tongue when she needs it but only does so in the right circumstances. She speaks her truth so she can live her life aligned with her values.
She has removed the mask that kept her safe but hidden and now allows her real self to shine through. She is able to see through the masks of others and knows that things go deeper than what is on the outside.
The Queen of Swords is bringing us all her gifts this week. She is helping us to speak our minds and allow ourselves to be vulnerable. She wants us to take off our armor and share who we are with others. She wants us to use our intelligence and honesty to get closer to the life we want.
In what ways can you use her incredible energy this week? How can you hold stronger boundaries? How can you share more of your truth? And how can you be more vulnerable with those you care about?
If we want to step into our power and spend time doing what brings us joy, we will need to channel the beautiful energy of the Queen of Swords. She is leading us to more vibrancy.
With the beginning of Taurus season, we can take a moment to rest and reset. We can set our intentions for the next season after all our hard work and we step into our strength.
Mantra for the week: Though I have been through battles, I always come out stronger and wiser. I choose to live in authenticity and joy.
