Theme of the week 03/08/15: Wands and Swords and getting a wiggle on

Good afternoon Moonbeams,

How are you all? I hope you have had a good weekend. Mine was ok, we played out on Saturday at our local agricultural show which was fun even though the weather was poor in the afternoon. I also decided to unravel the knitting project I was 95% through as it just wasn't right. I am going to use the yarn to knit myself a new cardigan instead. It is alpaca and drapes beautifully.  And yesterday, I received some worrying news, hopefully there will be a positive update during the week. All things just to keep us on our toes and stop us getting complacent. We go through stages where nothing seems to run smoothly, all of which I was forewarned about with The Wheel of Fortune on Friday

This last week I have had the teachers arrive, the lesson I am currently working through, advance notice of my world being in motion and now a curve ball slung my way... So bearing this in mind, I have asked upstairs what I need to be thinking about.

I have been given the gifts of Movement, The Page of Wands and The Ace of Swords.

Theme: Movement
This is an echo of the Wheel of Fortune and reminds us that life is not, nor is it meant to be, static. We need movement for growth and development. Whilst change is necessary, it is not always easy and, we are reminded to face it head on and to try to work with it instead of wasting our energy working against it.

Dominant Energy: The Page of Wands
Whatever it is, it needs grabbing with both hands and running with. This Page is full of creativity and ideas and enthusiasm. We are reminded that if we are open to opportunities, we have the chance to learn and grow.

Action: The Ace of Swords
We are reminded to use our intellectual faculties here. We need to consider our options and choose the most appropriate channel for our creative endeavours. Our choices are unlimited and we are bound only by our imagination. The force of air is on our side.

Our world is changing and it looks like we are set for a long journey here. This change will offer opportunities to feed our creative needs and so we need to look out for them. We also have our thinking caps on and so we can look for solutions and strategies to help us on our path. With the force of air we need to either think big or more likely with the energy of movement, backed up by the wheel of fortune, we need to look at it from a different level or view point. Change is here, embrace it.

Wishing you all a lovely week

  1. The Page of Wands and Ace of Swords seem to be great energies for working with movement! I hope you have a great week :) I finally purchased the Prisma Visions deck after seeing your post using it a few weeks ago. I'm really enjoying it!

    1. yes it is a fab deck isn't it? so full of energy and life but in a subtle and understated way I think. BB

  2. Love hearing about your knitting. I recall a certain lace project that I unraveled after hours of work upon deciding I wanted to alter the pattern. Not for the faint of heart. Pics when you complete your project would be fun.

    Hoping the worrying news you received resolves itself in a good way. Wishing you some fun wiggle time as you navigate the lessons being asked of you.

    1. Hi Rose, thank you. Yes it is always hard to unravel something when you have invested so much time and effort into it. And yet you know it is for the best and so you just start pulling ready to create what you want. It's a shame though that we can't be that decisive in our lives when we come across something or someone that isn't worth the time and effort we put in and just isn't right for us. BB
