Dating the King of Wands

Dating the King of Wands

A natural-born leader, this guy is the Master of the Fire Element . If it is one thing he’s not short on it’s confidence.  But where will his confidence take him? Will he be on stage doing stand-up comedy or is he busy organising the next coup d’état? And what about intimacy? How important you are to him may ultimately be determined by how willing you are to share his vision. Is the man you love a King of Wands but abusing the Fire? Check out  8 Types of W*ankers where you’ll find a description of the reversed King of Wands. Pros: If you’re looking for a man to inspire you, this is your guy! He could sell snow to Eskimos. His optimism is extremely contagious. He’s a straight shooter. No second-guessing needed. He’s adventurous and loves to surprise the one he loves. He’s passionate and spontaneous and can make things really sparkle in the bedroom. He’s usually quite lucky. Cons: He can be a bit of a clown and sometimes suffers from foot-in-mouth disease. His spontaneity can go overboard and put himself (his health) and his family at risk (finances). He doesn’t like to feel tied down and is one of the Courtiers most prone to commitment phobia. He can be quite authoritarian and tends to see the world in black and white. Type of date he prefers: Anything spontaneous and active… surprise him! Time from your first date until you introduce him to your parents: Ohhhh… not so sure he wants to meet them at all. If he loves you, he’ll do it for you but only when he’s good and ready. Then again, if you tempt him with borrowing your dad’s yacht for a spontaneous weekend of fun and frolics in the sun… Wedding style: In a far-flung place surrounded by strangers suits him just fine and appeals to his sense of adventure. Type of dad he would make: The goofy side of his personality (it’s quite prominent even when he tries to hide it!) will love playing with the kids. He’ll also be interested in making sure they grow up with the right values and will encourage them to travel at an early age. He’ll want them to grow up to be independent and confident in their abilities. His best match: The Queen of Swords as a) she appreciates his philosophical side  and b) she doesn’t mind getting married far away from her family and friends. His worst match: The Queen of Pentacles who a) usually needs to stay where she has put her roots down and b) values a man who knows how to repair the tractor over a man who travels the world and writes self-help books....

Dating the Queen of Cups

Dating the Queen of Cups

I’m very sensitive in real life. I will start to cry if someone is crying, even if it’s not appropriate. I have that thing in me, a weakness or sensitivity. ~ Jessica Chastain Highly sensitive, receptive, gentle, imaginative and intuitive, this fragile flower of a women epitomises femininity to many men. Because of her extreme receptivity, it becomes easy for others to project onto her their ideals as well as their dislikes. She can find it difficult to assert herself in a direct manner and often resorts to dealing with people passive-aggressively, or by other forms of manipulation.  B*tch Please (reversed Queens) might come in handy if you want to know more about the shadow aspects of this Queen who can be a lot more vicious than she appears. Pros: She lets you speak your mind and you feel truly listened to. She is easy-going and will go along with pretty much whatever you fancy. She cares when you stub your toe. The Queen of Wands might laugh at you but the Queen of Cups will be there to rub some Arnica cream on it and kiss it better. (Or she will if it doesn’t happen in the middle of her favourite soap opera, in which case she’ll be too absorbed to even notice.) You’ll always feel like you’re the man in the house. Her hunches are often spot on, so if you learn to trust them they can help you with anything from advancing your career to seeing the doctor before the cancer spreads. Cons: To get her way without having to speak her mind, she learns to manipulate others emotionally at a young age. Tears are her weapon of choice. It can be tricky to get to know her because of her somewhat nebulous nature. She prefers daydreams and flights of fancy to housework and easily forgets where she puts things. It helps if you have had police search training if you plan on building a home with the Queen of Cups! Type of date she prefers: Honestly, as long as you’re happy she’ll be happy. Just don’t take her to see a horror film if you care about her sleep at all. How to seduce the Queen of Cups: If you truly desire to win this Queen’s heart, then make her feel like the princess she knows she was born to be. Write her a heartfelt poem or compose a song in her honour and she will feel that you see her soul. It’s extremely important to her to feel deeply connected. It’s all about the soul connection. Her best match: The King of Pentacles, because he keeps her grounded. However, the Knight of Cups is the one who will win her heart. She may end up marrying the former and lusting after the latter. Her worst match: The Knight of Wands a) he wants her body and not her soul and b) thinks she’s...

Dating the King of Swords

Posted in Kings | 0 comments

The King of Swords is the King of the Intellect. He’s extremely gifted when it comes to logical, linear thinking, problem solving and Sudoku. You probably won’t stand a chance against him at a game of chess either. His intellectual capacity can be intimidating to less gifted people and we often find him in a position of authority, such as a doctor, lawyer or university professor. If his mind is in overdrive (due to an inability to ground mental energy), he can get anxious and when he gets anxious he can turn to quite nasty and devious ways of finding relief.  Check out 8 Types of W*ankers for more on the reversed King of Swords. Pros: He will dazzle pretty much anyone with his intellect. You won’t often get told ‘you could do better than him’ because the King of Swords is usually highly revered in our (still) patriarchal society. Your conversations will be stimulating and could potentially help expand your own mind. He’s not only employed – you are guaranteed not to find him working in the Coop, stacking shelves. If you want a high flier with lots of status, he’s the one! He’s not the jealous type. Cons: Can be cynical and/or arrogant. Sensitivity is not his forte. If you try to turn to him for a shoulder to cry on, he might go all ‘Spock’ on you. He may find it difficult to let go and just enjoy himself in the sack. Too much going on upstairs. Passion and romance are concept that are quite alien to this guy but he’s smart enough to do what’s expected of him… So don’t demand warmth with it as well – that’s too tall an order for this King! Type of date he prefers: Because he’s aware of his own social standing as well as where to find quality food and entertainment, he’s likely to take you to a Guide Micheline type restaurant or a classical concert. Time from your first date until you introduce him to your parents: Along with the King of Pentacles, this is one out of only about two men your dad will approve of, so if you worry about parental approval he may well be worth hanging on to! He will meet the parents well within the first 6 months of the relationship. The only problem is that he’s so darn busy! Wedding style: Nothing too extravagant but it will be classic, elegant and have a pared-down feel. The King of Swords is a lover of minimalist elegance, as it helps him declutter his very busy mind. He’s likely to sneer at anything remotely vulgar, over the top or with too many frills. Type of dad he would make: His children’s education will be his top priority. He may be more at ease with sons than with daughters. He thrives on helping his kids learn the ins and outs...

Owning Your Epic Bigness Tarot Spread

Posted in Divination | 14 comments

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson A while back, I created a spread to use for personal development called Being Me. This spread contains a card position that helps you look more closely at what you are afraid to own and therefore tend to project onto others. In the case of fear of success, we attribute others with all the positive qualities and ability to succeed that we shy away from out of fear. This type of projection is known as the ‘Golden shadow’ in Jungian terms. While the Being Me spread is OK to use as it may reveal a Golden shadow. I felt it was too general and decided to create a spread that focuses more specifically on the Golden shadow and would provide a way to transmute any fears of success into a spirit of ‘feeling the fear and doing it anyway.’     1. Your greatest fear about stepping into your Epic Bigness It could be a fear of losing people, a general fear of the unknown, a fear of having to assume more responsibility, feeling like a fraudster who is faking it, etc… This card will give you something to focus on so that you can tackle it head on. 2. Challenge to overcome this fear In order to overcome this fear, you need to push past this boundary of your comfort zone. Or as Neale Donald Walsch would say: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” 3. Letting go of this This is something that you will have to say bye-bye to or someone who will feel too challenged by your transformation into a butterfly of epic bigness. It could be a whole group of people (friends and/or family members). The card in this position will help you prepare for this part of the transition you are making. 4. New channel of support This is a person, spirit guide, Angel or new network of people who you can rely on for support. Gradually, as you come into your own, you will start...
