there's so much energy humming right now, it's actually palpable. sometimes when i'm shuffling and preparing to pull my daily reading, it feels like certain cards are almost inevitable, that you know what's coming before it comes. with so much uncertainty, anxiety, and adrenaline going at all times these days, it feels like the only card i could possibly draw today is the one i got: the ace of wands. aces are always representative of opportunities & beginnings, a seed being planted, the purest qualities of its suit. and when combined with wands, the suit of fire, energy, action, passion, movement, adventure... this is an incredibly high-powered card. bursting life, untapped potential, exploding energy - everything in this card screams to get moving, seize that opportunity, grab that new adventure. the wand in this card literally radiates fiery energy and power and light.
we're in the process of filling out applications for new apartments, and our timelines for this move are so tight that every decision feels urgent, like we're constantly falling behind. things feel like they're careening out of control, flying through non-stop green lights and hairpin turns, and all we can do is breathe deep and hang on and hope that we stay on course. this card encourages me to keep pushing, to stay focused, to harness all of that frantic, stressful energy and channel it into positive steps forward. don't fear the speed - use it.
this card can also speak to restlessness and uncertainty, both of which i certainly am flooded with at this moment. i think that simply acknowledging emotions (as yesterday's card reminded me) can be really helpful in difficult situations, and that taking a beat to feel what i'm feeling is always a useful exercise. i have to keep pushing to resolve this situation and plan our move, but i can also pause for breath and remember to care for myself, to pace myself, to remain focused on the final outcome.
