Card for the Week of October 1, 2018


Child of Wands from the Naked Heart Tarot by Jillian C. Wilde

The Page of Wands shows a lovely foxlette gazing at a radiant wand. Actually, the fox witnesses the wand radiating, weather it does (visually and materially) or not. This, in a sense, is the energy of the Fool, who sees only opportunity: the potential for overflow of wonderer, success, engagement, abundance and creative manifestation. I see here, the “matchstick” to the Luminaries: the wonderful alchemy that passes from the Star (creative quality), to the Moon (reflective quality) to the Sun (revealing quality). Fox is poised to light the match and set the alchemical processes into motion.

This week, watch for sparkly inspirations: moments that provide that sliver of psyched-energy potential: Uplifting and hopeful glimpses of possibility. This is BIG MAGIC—the Big Magic attitude and mojo-ic moxie that Elizabeth Gilbert speaks of in her book of the same title (sweet little piece from the NYT here).

If you are thinking of writing a book, joining a group, starting a new career, learning a new language, applying to school or beginning any such dream and/or desire, this might be the week to give it more energy. Give a smile and dance with the child-like enthusiasm. There is only good feeling to be gained in entertaining. And remember, you are “four paws to the earth” and won’t combust by considering: it’s good for your spirit.
