There’s been a shift hasn't there? Can you feel it too? After so much strife and struggle it seems as if we’ve developed an opening. Fire can be like that, all of a sudden it burns a hole in the wall just big enough to crawl through into a completely new world.
Welcome The King of Wands. Wands represent the fire element; with fire comes decision and action and with a King comes authority and power. Last week we were bruised and battered yet still holding on, this week we’re sitting on our throne giving orders.
All four of the Kings of Tarot rule quite differently. The Water King (cups) is sensitive and emotional, The Air King (swords) is authoritarian and logical, The Earth King (coins) is grounded and wise. The Fire King though… the fire king is an impassioned man. So what does this mean? Close your eyes and channel fire energy. It’s quick and hot, rash and exciting. So this will be the energy from which you’ll be ruling situations in your life this week should you choose to use it to your advantage.
In Tarot, The Suite of Wands brings with it inspiration, creativity, and that which makes us tick. Be prepared to call new shots in these areas. In this vein, we have a full moon in Aries on Oct. 15th, which means more fire! Aries rules the first house and is primarily concerned with who I am. Look for the areas in your life where you’re learning about you. The very purpose ofthis wringer we’ve been put through is to teach us about this amazing person we spend every waking moment with. Who the hell are you in this word of millions of people and things and agendas? What do you want? What do you need? Full moons are about release, so make a list of what you're ready to get rid of, in order to be more comfortable in your own skin. Fire brings courage and optimism in its bag of tools, so pull those out to assist.
A word of warning, this is the Fire King after all, and fire can be impulsive and impatient. Fire can also lack a sense of direction and burn out quickly, so be mindful that while you have a sense of power and drive this week, there’s a shadow side to it. Make moves in a focused manner and do so with haste, before you lose flame and settle into embers and cold ash.
