Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: King of Wands

download (2)

When pulled upright this card is about energy. All the other wands cards are about creativity but this card is about the king having an idea and implementing it himself. This card represents a natural born leader and someone who is quite capable. Once you have a goal in mind you will stick to it until it is accomplished. If you pull the king card you may look forward to challenges and enjoy solving them.

When pulled in reverse this card can suggest one may be arrogant. When pursuing your goals you may be a bit aggressive, whether you realize it or not. You may make impulsive and rash decisions. You may also be pushy and overbearing at times. It is very likely that you are not trying to make others feel submissive to you but that is what you are doing regardless. This card can also suggest you are selfish, ruthless, and/or manipulative. 

When you pull this card it may be hard to tell whether it is telling you positive or negative things about yourself. To help with this here is a tarot spread. This is great for figuring what things about your a great and what needs work. First I would take the king of wands out of the deck and meditate on it while thinking about what you think are your strong traits and your negative traits. Then shuffle and pull using your preferred method.

Citrine

Natural citrine does not hold on to negative energies but rather dissipates it. This makes citrine a great protective crystal. It is one of two crystals that doesn’t need to be cleared or cleansed. This stone promotes imagination and creativity.

This crystal is most known for bringing money your way and also maintaining said money. It attracts wealth, prosperity, and all things good. It is also a crystal that encourages you to be of goodwill and makes you more generous with sharing your wealth.

This crystal is also known for helping people in their professions. It helps interactions for those in sales and other similar financial careers. It is fortifying for those in healing careers and stimulates work in government fields. It also boosts creativity for those who are artists.

If you are having interpersonal relationship problems with family, friends, partners, you name it, then this is a great crystal for you. It helps smooth out conflict and promotes solutions.

If you carry this crystal around it will bring love and happiness to you. It will also shield you from those who would otherwise break your heart.

This crystal with its yellow hue is great for balancing the naval/solar plexus chakra as well.

Despite all these amazing traits of citrine it is not recommended for those with a temper because it can amplify that emotion and make one aggressive. It should also be avoided if you are one to slander or gossip.

Thank you for reading! Do you use citrine in your day to day life? What does it do for you? Let me know in the comments along with any other thoughts or questions you have.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Seven of Wands

download.jpg

When pulled upright this card is about experiencing a struggle. Unlike the five of wands (which is about getting through a struggle to reach your goal) this card is about getting through a struggle to maintain your goal. This is about all the difficulties we have to go through to keep our success going. Be prepared to have to fight to keep your position and prove yourself. The general meaning of this card is that you need to stand your ground no matter the costs. You need to fight for what your believe and what you want.

When pulled in reverse this card is about you possibly feeling overwhelmed by all the responsibilities you have as well as any challenges you may be facing. This card talks about the fact that you may not be seeing the whole picture and that you may be comparing yourself to others. This card could also be talking about how you are feeling judged lately. Everyone seems to be questioning your decisions and it is making you feel overwhelmed. This card when upside down is saying that you are doing everything it tells you not to do when upright. It is saying that instead of fighting for what you want and what you believe in, you are just throwing the towel in. Remember what work you’ve put in to get where you are and really think about whether it is something you are willing to give up. Another interpretation of this card is that you may be too aggressive when you are fighting for what you want and it may be damaging your relationships. 

Here is a tarot spread to help you get through your struggles and maintain your goals. First take the seven of wands out of your deck and mediate on it. While you meditate focus on what success you are trying to maintain. Then shuffle your cards and pull them using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Five of Wands

b7dfd2a065c8be3846b8e73dd0cad638

When pulled upright this card is about conflict in your life. This conflict may already exist or it may be in the works of starting up now. This card could also be about communication problems. This card depicts 5 entities who are all fighting with each other. No one is listening to the other. They all want to be heard and none want to listen. This problem can often be solved if the person asking the question take the first steps to opening up communication. Everyone will be heard which means everyone will be happy. This card can also talk about experiencing competition in your life (this could already be happening or be about to happen). This competition will take place in an area of your life that you are not used to competing in. This card suggests that you take on the challenge and view it as a way to grow without showing any malice. This card could also be about a personal struggle you are having. You need to address this problem you are having and find a solution.

When pulled in reverse this card is about how you deal with conflict. It says that instead of dealing with disagreements and conflict you avoid them. Sometimes this is a good things but not always. Other times it can result in your bottling things up which may cause you to explode later on.

Here is a tarot spread based on the 5 of wands. This is a great spread for when you’re trying to work through a conflict. First I would take out the 5 of wands and meditate on it while thinking about the conflict that’s happening in your life. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Major Arcana Card 7: The Chariot

c0d5f37614529af20ebb81432ca0c3cb

When pulled upright the Chariot is about overcoming challenges and being victorious through maintaining control of your surroundings. You need to be strong and have willpower to be victorious and achieve your goals. You must maintain focus, confidence, and determination through your journey in life. If you have a plan you are unsure of pursue it with a structured approach. In your drive to reach your goal you may realize you are becoming competitive or aggressive.  These are natural aspects of human nature and can be good to help you reach your goals but you must make sure it keep it under control so it doesn’t hinder you moving forward.

When pulled in reverse the Chariot is about excessive aggression and/or a lack of willpower. It can mean that you lack drive, determination, and ambition or the opposite, that you are becoming overly obsessed with your goals. This card can also be about a lack of control or direction in your life. You are letting yourself be tossed around and are just taking the punches. This is a time to remember to tie any loose ends and to take charge of your destiny.

Here is a tarot spread that focuses on The Chariot Card. First I would take the Chariot out of the deck and meditate on the goal you want help with right now. Then I would shuffle the cards and pull them using the method you see as best.

Card 1: This card represents you and your personality, which dictates what kinds of risks you usually take, whether you are cautious or careless, and affects how high you usually set your goals. You are perfectly capable of achieving more, if you so desire, but be aware that the effort may be greater, or that some changes in your current mode of thinking may be required.

Card 2: This card represents your goal, what you are focusing on, or an aspect of that goal you hadn’t considered. Is this really what you want?

Cards 3, 4 and 5: These cards are the things you have, resources upon which to draw, things or people that can help. Also things that you will need to achieve your goal.

Cards 6 and 7: These represent a tempered version of the goal, a reality check. They represent what is possible, and a concrete way to make it happen, a step to the goal. Can be problems that will be met and need to be overcome, or things to watch out for and prepare for.

When you have read all the cards, look at them all together. Are the steps to your goal in order? Lay them out so that they are, from you to your goal. Maybe you find the goal itself is not in the right place. Rearrange them so they make sense to you, not necessarily in a straight line, but however it takes to get you there.
