An interesting trio

Ace of Wands, Two of Pentacles, The Emperor ~ Shadowscapes Tarot by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Ace of Wands, Two of Pentacles, The Emperor ~ Shadowscapes Tarot by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

I got up much earlier than normal this morning thanks to an alarm snafu on my part, so I have managed to get a few things done early today and that means time for a reading this morning instead of later today.

I’ve taken to doing a different type of shuffling of my deck since I’ve been “in love” with the wands suit now for a bit so cut it a couple times in different variations and then smooth shuffling. ¬†It seems that no matter what I do to shuffle I end up with a wands card so I am going to roll with it for as long as they wish to grace me. ūüôā ¬†Wands afterall often deal with career and work oriented messages and those are coming through loud and to the front with all the changes at work lately anyway.

Ace of Wands ~ Again we take a look at this beautiful and foxy card. ¬†It’s the possibility of creativity and excitement, a challenge to step up with courage and confidence. ¬†Time to plant the wand, my desire and will, and watch it manifest. ¬†Inspiration will come easily and while this is also a fire card, with fire being unpredictable, wield the flame of inspiration and creativity with purpose and the blaze that is trailed will be one of success.

Two of Pentacles ~Standing on one leg you see him delicately balancing all that is before him while on a rocky terrace.  Below the platform he stands on a chameleon is curled into the symbol for balance, the Yin/Yang.  Here you see some of the struggles that may come from the creative fire of the Ace of Wands.  It is a balancing act to keep everything in motion while still being flexible and adapting to changes as they come  quickly and easily.  Meeting these challenges as they tumble towards me with confidence and will and the balancing act will pay off, I must be aware of my work load and not take on too much.  Time to remember that I can share my load with other people through good communication and training.

The Emperor ~ Fascinating!  Creating order form chaos.  Showing Authority, leadership, strength and establishing order in my world.  The carvings in the card symbolize domain and dominion of said domain.   The Emperor is ruler of life and the wild, he has touched the chaos and brought it within to give it order and light.

When I look at these cards together I see a path being set before me that speaks of leadership, of creating and sharing.  YES!  This fits into what I plan for this year nicely.  I will stay on the path and put together the circle and hive coven for the area.  I have the creativity and will to help birth it and make it work.  I do not have to do it alone and can bring something new and beautiful to the area.  Time to sit down and start planning!
