This particular earworm is how I think of the Four of Wands, our card of the week. Wands are all about the fire and passion and spark of life, and fours speak to things materializing and becoming solid and stable, “even if.” Even if: swords=rest, even if worry hangs over you; water=opportunity, even if you don’t want it; pentacles=money, even if you won’t let go of it. Except for the wands—we don’t have an “even if” here. We just have community, and celebration, and home, and joy.
I am SO HAPPY to see this card come up for the week. If you follow my Facebook page, you know that I’ve been dealing with some crazy swirling sword energy around financial stuff in my life, particularly around a house I’ve owned for a couple years that I’m in the process of attempting to sell. When I stopped by a couple months ago to check in with my tenants, it was clear to me that they loved the house, and most importantly, the house loved them. The energy was fabulous. And this week, things moved into place where it looks as though I’ll be able to sell the house to them (*fingers crossed* because it isn’t final yet). This gives me such warm fuzzies!!
I also love that we have fire energy for our full moon in Leo that will happen on Sunday, January 20, at 10:16pm MST. Leo is a fun, fabulous, confident, sunny sign of fire. Interestingly, this month also includes a total lunar eclipse (visible in the US, woo hoo!), which brings the opposite energy to Leo’s outward focus. Eclipses are when the moon becomes hidden; we can’t see it. If Leo is all about being seen, and eclipses are about what’s hidden, perhaps this is a good time to think about what needs to come to light. Are there aspects of your strengths that you keep hidden (inside your brain, your body, or even your physical four-of-wands house) because you are worried about how they might be perceived? Well, now’s the time to bring ‘em out, baby!
How might you celebrate the spark and passion and fabulous self you keep hidden?
I say sashay down the catwalk of your life, proud of yourself and who you are. Shine on, friends!
