So much for one of each card! I asked Spirit to send me a message for the collective and four cards flew out from each deck. They even fell in the exact same pattern; so be it! We have two swords and two wand cards. A situation is about to become clearer, and with clarity comes great manifestation!
Two of Swords & Void-of-Course Moon
The first set is the Two of Swords with the Void-Of-Course Moon. More swords energy! Cutting through illusion and the bitter truth are relentless these past two weeks. Here, a choice must be made. Notice how the figure is blind folded wielding two swords? The swords represent the options you have in front of you. The blindfold must come off if you’re to see the situation for what it really is. In this case, you are being asked to let go of control. The unknown in this reading points to an unexplored way of being. Worry and fear are sometimes just a response to the unknown. There is a lot of teamwork action happening in this reading, and I see it hasn’t been sailing smoothly. The message is to let go of the anxiety that everything must be a certain way, really listen to others’ opinion. The Void-Of-Course Moon urges you to try another suggestion. It may work better than you think. Nothing is going to come of believing you can’t work with this person or people.
Waxing Crescent Moon & Five of Wands
The Five of Wands represent the dedicated work you’ve been put into this idea or job.The struggle isn’t over, but you’re well on your way to achieving what you set out to gain. There are five figures here helping wield the wands, symbolizing teamwork. Whatever your personal circumstance is entrepreneurial or leadership in a place of employment, this vision is shared and you are being called to release control and be flexible in your pursuits. Personalities have been clashing; nonetheless, you are getting closer to your goal. Don’t let a stubborn streak slow you down now. The Waxing Crescent Moon card further accentuates this message by urging you to keep going! Even if you, or the person or people included in this situation can’t see the forest through the trees, that doesn’t mean the view will never rise. Your goals are manifesting. Persevere and be patient. Remember, nothing worth having is easy.
Queen of Swords & New Moon in Pisces
The feminine energy of Queen of Swords is next, paired with the New Moon in Pisces. This is a serendipitous pair since the Queen of Swords, as fierce and powerful as she is, can have less than redeeming qualities when she feels she’s been wronged. This card is asking you to tame the anxiety and worry, heal any resentment or whatever negative feeling that has boiled over due to this situation. Learn the lesson that resulted from it instead. Then you’ll be able to work with the cool, mental clarity needed to achieve this dream collectively. The New Moon in Pisces urges you to release fear about this situation.There are good tidings underway and it will only be slowed down by allowing the mind to create false realities to feed the ego. The time is now to make the shared vision come to life; and for some, this their final chance to make the right choices.
New Moon in Aries & Three of Wands
The next set is the Three of Wands and the New Moon in Aries (how fitting that both are fire signs!) Fire creates, but it can also destroy. The figure in the Three of Wands is carefully tending to her fire. This card suggests that you do the same with your situation. Whatever happened with this other person, or people, who share in your goal are part of its growth process. Working with others isn’t always easy, but it’s a requirement to build great outcomes. The Three of Wands energy shows the foundation of your plan is already built and just needs tending to keep the fire blazing. Use this conflict to gain clarity and grow your communication and team building skills. Big opportunities are on the way! The New Moon in Aries reiterates the Three of Wands: the flame has caught, stoke that flame! There is still much work to be done and there’s enough fire energy to keep it moving to completion.
The New Moon in Aries also cautions against the Queen of Swords energy and suggests to treat people well. Even when we are in conflict with others, everyone shares the same basic needs of wanting to be heard and appreciated. Not everyone can get along at all times. A simple apology and clarity on the situation will lead you straight into achieving the vision you have begun so carefully crafting!
