Over these last months there has been much heavy, dense energy. It has seemed at times as if we would never come through this darkness, that we would always be living in some perpetual half life.
That’s why I was very happy to see this card today….the Ace of Wands. It is the epitome of hope and optimism. A tiny spark has ignited….it’s not much at the moment but if we can nurture the flame and keep it alight it will begin to grow and spread. What’s more, if we can ALL light a tiny flame of positivity, love, peace and light, the effect will begin to spread exponentially, shining light into all the dark and scary places. Once illuminated these phantoms lose their power over us, to control through fear.
Sometimes we can feel powerless and helpless to effect change, but if we can truly be the change we wish to see in the world, then we can work miracles when we join together in pursuit of peace, beauty, joy and positivity. With this attitude we can reach a tipping point and truly change the world.
When I turned this card over today, the sight of it was a welcome relief. This is the Ace of Wands from The Spacious Tarot, a beautifully simple but evocative card.
It reminded me immediately of a line from a Kate Bush song, Symphony in Blue….
“When that feeling of meaninglessness sets in, Go blowing my mind on God: The light in the dark, with the neon arms, The meek He seeks, the beast He calms, The head of the good soul department.”
It made me feel as if there is a higher power, however we want to interpret that, whether we see that as God, the Universe, or our Higher Self, that is guiding us through this unprecedented time.
It gave me a sense of hope and optimism for the first time in a while. It seemed to be saying that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and although this glowing spark is small, it is real, and will grow stronger as it gains momentum. This makes me think of the energy and vitality of new beginnings. Maybe we can never go back to the way things used to be, but this crisis which has touched everyone in one way or another, will pave the way for new creative and inspiring solutions to take us forward into our new reality.
This is a week of new beginnings and inspired concepts! Any ideas which emerge in your consciousness really could have legs, and may contain the seeds of something which has tremendous potential. So don’t dismiss anything as being too crazy or unworkable. The Aces are about the essence or impression of an idea, and so may need some fine tuning, but the basic idea is good….so develop it, and run with it. You never know where it might take you!
Today’s fiery energy is characterised by the Ace of Wands. It indicates inspired ideas and creativity. Maybe a promising thought will pop into your head and you’ll be enthusiastic to get cracking and bring this project to fruition. However the Aces are all about potential, so no matter how great an idea seems it will also require action and focused work to make it a reality.
