Queen of Wands and The Moon
This week, we enter the month of June and have a Sagiartius Full Moon on June 3rd. The cards guide us and call our best selevs forward as we journey through the days ahead.
Our first card this week is the Queen of Wands. She is the fire inside all of us. She is the energy that makes us loving and loyal friends and worthy adversaries.
The Queen speaks to the passionate energy that bubbles up when we see injustices in the world. And the warrior in us that has been through the very worst of days and made it out stronger.
This makes her tough and opinionated but lacking when it comes to communicating in a diplomatic way. She can be overpowering and turn people off with her intensity.
As we journey through Gemini Season, it is even more important we are aware of how we communicate, as it can make it even more challenging. We should use the lessons of the Queen of Wands to practice compassionate expression.
This week we are called to connect to our fire within while learning to be aware of how this fire might impact others. Some questions we might ask are:
How can we be both strong and warm at the same time? How can we share our passion without alienating others? How can we have compassion for those we disagree with while still holding them accountable?
Let the fire push you to create change through understanding and grace. The kindness in your communication and actions will make them so much more impactful.
Our next card this week is The Moon. The Moon is number eighteen in the Major Arcana and depicts a mysterious night-time scene. The card here shows Anubis, the jackal god of the Egyptians. Below is a scarab beetle holding a glowing moon.
The scarab is is a symbol of renewal and immortality, portaying the Moon’s association with natural cycles and rhythms. We are called to tap into the cycles and rhythms of our lives and to allow ourselves ‘to go with the flow.’
When we resist the natural ups and downs, we find ourselves exhausted and out of sync. But when we accept that everything has both peaks and valleys, we are able to feel more grounded and at peace.
We know that after winter there is always spring. And that all New Moons will lead into a Full Moon and back again. It is the same with our lives. There are times of plenty and times with less. The more comfortable we are with the cyclical nature of life the more we can find the good in each moment.
The Moon card indicates a voyage to the centre of ourselves. When we journey inside, we don’t find flaws or weaknesses, but an unshakeable core that is steady through all the phases of life.
When we connect to ourlseves through the Moon’s guidance, we find our psychic and intuitive abilities. Important parts of ourselves are revealed when we open up to what is deep inside.
Mantra for the week: My energy is both strong and warmth. Through the cycles of life, I stay grounded at my core.
