Knight of Wands | King of Cups | The Hermit
You might feel a strong desire to get going with an idea or to move in a new direction, but something or someone is holding you back from taking action. Is it the right time? Do you need to create more of a plan or to consider your options?
The Knight of Wands can be impulsive, and sometimes we need an impulsive drive coupled with action to get new ideas moving, but you might be butting heads with someone who is older, wiser and more mature. The King of Cups has emotional mastery. What can you learn from him? This person might be holding your passion back like a a dam for a very good reason. Are you considering other people’s feelings or are you just focused on your own needs? The King of Cups might be showing you ways you can stay in the game longer: by tempering your drive, trying to focus it, or redirected it if need be. Where are you trying to place your passion and why? Do you have a game plan? The King of Cups would encourage you to make your choices from the heart and to consider how your actions make other people feel. How do you want to be seen?
The Hermit card also cautions you to take your time, to conserve your energy and to wait for the right time. Make choices that place you in the most balanced and stable light. Stop and listen to inner guidance and consider counsel from those who might have more experience than you do, as well as your best interest at heart. The Hermit implies that if you are in this race for the long haul, you will need to conserve your energy. Which actions reflect the most cultured and mature version of yourself? How can you be seen as someone who has kindness, empathy and compassion?

This weekend is a good remind that self-care, healing and renewal are all things you have control over. If your mind goes to the happy place of summer, rest assured it is coming, but appreciate the subtle changes from winter to spring that are here now.
Change happens so slowly, within ourselves and our environment. If your mind or body feels stuck in a “dark night of the soul”, look up and look around you. What might you take advantage of in your own home or your own back yard that will lighten your perspective and make you feel more at peace with who you are and where you are right now? I know you are longing for summer, but you don’t have to stay stuck in a winter mindset when there is evidence of the environment becoming a friendlier place to exist.
Your healing is in your own hands. You have the strength and the power to get through any challenges by going within, cutting out distraction, getting back to the basics and simply creating the time and space for yourself to do the work. When you focus on yourself and focus on your own healing, you will notice that it becomes less work to sustain feeling positive or light. Your vibration will get lighter, your body will get lighter, and your thoughts will get lighter too. Other people can affect our mood. Other people’s actions, other people’s words, other people’s life choices. Our environment is loud and sometimes toxic.
Sometimes we are put into a position where we must create boundaries for ourselves in order to survive and to truly thrive. If you are put into a position to draw a line in the sand, know that it’s not because the people in our life are bad or certain lifestyle choices are bad but these choices are not working for us at this moment in time. Cut out what doesn’t need to be there.
Less is more. The Ace of Swords will help you be discerning. Use it as a tool to cut away any of the parts that are no longer serving the person you are today. If you are looking for clarity, get away this weekend, take the time you need for a personal retreat. Create the space in your own life to cultivate perfect health and to let it transform you. You have control over how you feel, how you look, and what you think. Be kind to yourself. Say nice things to yourself. Look for the good in yourself and your life.
