Card of the week: 2 of Wands

2 of Wands.jpg

The last few weeks have gone through extreme energy. First there was the fight, and then the pain. Now the energy is restored, but hushed, a small window open to let in the noiseless night. This week the energy is charged from within, bringing together the duality of energy and patience.

On one hand this card speaks to awareness. The spirit of the Wands creates a consciousness that is passionate and determined. On the other hand, this card speaks to discovery and restrictions. This week the energy is fine-tuning and whittling the ideas towards success and enterprise, but haste will not serve this process. Haste creates emotional conflicts.

Right now, and for the rest of the week, clarity will see projects and conversations through, both with yourself and others. The energy is brimming with good intentions and a will to see it through. But putting more and more and more energy into something does not always make it manifest faster.

This is the week to dig in deep, and keep strong. The energy of loss and melancholy has gone, but there will be more days and weeks like that. There will be times where it does not seem like an idea, an action, or even yourself are good enough and cannot keep up. But these statements are false. This is the week to turn pain into a new journey.

This is not a card about final destinations, or about treasure in gold or prophecies. This is the card that breaks open ability, and helps to find the center between intention and action. This week, bring action to your thoughts and passions. You may not see the results soon, and some choices may never get a return. Do not be restless, or continuously search around the same dotted X. Find a new place to dig.

    1. Yes and no. I do my best to mindful of who is receiving the message and how the cards unfold. I will do call to actions based on particular cards in the spread. If there is a card that seems out of place, or if the person would like to go deeper into a particular card than sometimes there can be a warning card or a guiding plan of action. I do also take into account some reverse positions of the cards, and what that may mean.

  1. Thanks for replying Ashlie. Just in the past with other tarot card readers, they been general about readings saying its to guide while others to give warning and thought maybe you could give clarification which you have. What would be the worst card and position it is at to be drawn for a person?

    1. Well each person is different, and has a different reaction to individual cards. As you said, position is also a factor. For myself, there are a few cards that I struggle with in my personal readings. First is the Tower. For some reason this card (both upright and reversed) seems to bring a heavy energy to my readings, especially in the Goals part of the spread. The upright Hierophant, and Reversed Judgment are also a heavy load. I also do not like to see the Reversed 7 of wands in my environment or outcome part of the spread. Are there any cards that you have been conflicted with?
