Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Tarot Card of the Week: March 9-15, 2009

The Ace of Wands
Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.

— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

From last week’s Knight, now to the Ace, the Wands are sending a clear message that we must take action. This is not the time for passivity, confusion, analysis, or emotions; now is the time to make things happen.

Like all the Aces of the suits, this card holds all the potential and power of its element. Wands are Fire (in most systems of the Tarot), so we are seeing the genesis of energy, manifesting and creativity. The hand of Mystery offers the sprouting branch, so obviously phallic, with its leaves surrounded by “yods,” the symbols that represent the name of the Divine. This is a gift that represents the deep life force itself.

Whether it is our heart’s desire, or even the conception or birth of a child, big transformation and magic is crackling this week. What do you need to get the ball rolling? Tarot author and expert, Rachel Pollack, sums it up clearly. “At the beginning of some situation, no card could signal a better start.” It is time to turn our dreams and potential into reality!

This week, expect a great gift of renewed vigor, sexual energy, and a love of life. Let the approaching Springtime energy “fire you up!” Look for a new opportunity to bring your dreams to life. This is a time of enormous creativity, enthusiasm, and growth. You are being given a divine spark of inspiration, power, and magic – use it well, for it is certain to launch you into illuminating, amazing, and quite possibly steamy new adventures.

What creative project have you been longing to begin? In what way is it time for you to take the initiative? Go for it!

This week, step into the limelight and make things happen! Let joyfulness, creativity and your deepest, most affirming desires inflame your passions, for a new beginning is upon you. It’s time to boldly move forward — your Highest Good is calling.

    This is rather exciting! I am feeling some of energy without clarity about it’s source. My creative ideas for making chakra healing bead necklaces are manifesting somewhat quickly. I have received some positive feedback. Several of my prototypes are being tested by friends. oh yeah, and I requested a resale tax number, so I may legally sell stuff in PA and obtain the beads and materials at wholesale prices. I might be on to something here. Art and abundance…? Beauty, balance and delight….? I hope so.

    I am finding it takes me a lot of time to ponder and complete the suggested exercises. I added one of them from Vein of Gold for a timeline of my life. I want to complete as many of these as possible, because I find them meaningful. I may be going a little slower than the group for a while and not jump ahead to the next chapter too soon. My artist date this week is to spend several hours looking through my art books. I have quite a collection that have sat on the shelf for years. Now is the time! I purchased only books of artists who inspired me. I also acknowledged today, that I qualify as one of those ‘shadow’ artist wannabees in at least three areas music, fiber arts and drawing/painting art. I have come out of the shadow with my healing arts. Whew, at least there is one that I am already good at!

    Hey, Starflower! First, EXCELLENT NEWS that you’re doing the legwork to sell your stuff! Yay!

    And second – no worries… I am planning to POKE slowly here.. not deliberately, really. But just because when I’ve done TAW before, it’s taken me (by myself!) MUCH longer than one week per chapter.

    Figuring we’re all doing this together PLUS the abbreviated length of blogging, PLUS the fact that I do intend to blend in other resources and authors, we’re going to take our sweet time!

    Please feel free to add your Vein of Gold insights as we go along and anything else that inspires you! Same for everyone here!

    I love that you are all sharing your other resources and materials! This is such a juicy journey.. I am so glad you’re here!

    When I read the Ace of Wands post yesterday it had everything to do with my healing practice beginning to take shape. I didn’t post, but now reading Star’s post I want to because of the synchronicity (sp?) . . . A friend and Reiki client I am beginning to work with stated her desire last week to learn more about stones and crystals. This is one of my favorite healing modalities! And like many (*Star* included I believe) I use specific gemstones to balance each chakra.

    I am so excited to teach my friend what I know about the stones and healing, and I feel this is Just The Beginning of a much larger project being blessed by the Ace of Wands!

    (The Page of Wands has been popping up all over the place in my personal readings.)
