Ok, so today I have drawn The Mother of Wands from The Wild Unknown deck for my daily card.
The “Mothers” in the tarot deck are all about the qualities of nurturing and protection and how we do this for others and for ourselves.
The Mother of Wands is passionate, vibrant, charismatic and creative. She is the type of mother who manages to maintain a warm and welcoming environment for her family and friends, whilst also finding the time to pursue her own projects and endeavours in the outside world. This is the woman who is able to “do it all” and often we marvel at what she is able to achieve in the same twenty four hours that we are all apportioned. I think of someone like Nigella Lawson, the ultimate “domestic goddess”, who also manages to juggle multiple business projects alongside family life.
As a mother she is likely to be fiercely protective of her family, defending them to the death and supporting them through thick and thin.
When this card comes up it is likely to signify the querent, or someone with these qualities and attributes who is already, or soon to appear in the querents reality.
Alternatively, it can also be a call to embody some of the qualities of The Mother of Wands in your own life. I think this was certainly the case for me today as I contemplate whether I have the courage and conviction to move forward with plans and projects. I feel that a large dollop of confidence, passion, enthusiasm and self belief would certainly not go amiss!
