On a Quest for Adventure

Posted in Daily Inspiration, Knights | 2 comments

  “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too.

Dating the Knight of Wands

If the Knight of Wands signifies the one you carry your torch for, you might want to know a bit more about the pros and cons of dating this guy. He might be a Leo or an Aries or just generally very charismatic and ‘fiery.’  He’s flirty but he can’t help it… right? If he’s mostly a good guy, keep reading. If he’s a bit of an asshole… What are you doing hooking up with him?! Hurry to 8 Types of W*ankers (reversed male courtiers) and get the lowdown there instead. Pros: He’s fun-loving and knows how to show his date a good time. He’s not afraid of attracting attention and usually doesn’t mind public displays of affection. He can be very generous. Young or not he’s usually sexually experienced which means you’ll have a good time doing the horizontal samba. Cons: He can also be very selfish. This is not all bad. The Knight of Wands type person can teach us girlies a thing or two about looking out for number one – he’s so very good at it! His sexual prowess means you really should take every precaution to make sure you don’t catch anything. Type of date he prefers: Action please! Bungy-jumping, ski diving, downhill skiing, paintballing, skinny dipping… You get the picture. Time from your first date until you introduce him to your parents: Tricky with this one as it may never happen. Commitment isn’t his forte. Wedding style: Las Vegas, baby! Be prepared for the annulment two days later when he sobers up. Type of dad he would make: Absentee, most likely… but if he’s around he’ll teach your kid some killer moves on the Xbox. Hide the games with inappropriate age ratings if he’s around younger kids. Discernment isn’t his forte either. The kids will love him though. Basically, he’s a big kid himself. His best match: The Queen of Wands as a) she won’t put up with his nonsense and b) she’s not likely to get too heavily attached emotionally. His worst match: The Queen of Pentacles because she would a) expect him to behave responsibly and b) be a good...

8 Types of W*nkers

THE 4 KNIGHTS Let’s start with the reversed Knights. Their inner wanker is always close to the surface and doesn’t need much of an invitation to come out to play. These blokes are still young and they wouldn’t know subtle if it hit them in the face. Brimming with over-confidence (read ‘testosterone’) they are eager to put their mark on the world. The Reversed Knight of Wands. It’s no secret that the mark he wants to put on the world is in the form of notches on his bed post. He often has more than one partner on the go and can’t stop himself from flirting. Why should he even need to? He won’t be held accountable for any trespasses – it’s not his fault that he was born irresistible and that women can’t keep their hands off him! Player? Pfffft. He’s just young and sowing his oats! The world should be grateful that he shines the light of the Sun out of all his orifices. Suck it up, suckers! The Reversed Knight of Cups. Moody, brooding, difficult and just a general pain in the *rse. He’s almost always in a bad mood but it’s never his fault. He’s just sensitive and artistic and terribly misunderstood, you see. Yet he has this intensity behind the eyes that draws the ladies in. They seek to ease his suffering. Often quite a lot older than him, they mother him and look after all those boring earthly tasks that his artistic genius shouldn’t have to be bothered with. Manipulative? How dare you suggest such a thing! See, now he’s misunderstood again and off to drown his sorrows in a bottle of cheap red wine. The Reversed Knight of Swords. He is always right. Period. Never mind that he changed his mind just now. He was right then and he is right now and you are always totally wrong. He doesn’t date much. If he trawls the Internet dating sites it’s mostly to find someone to troll and cyber bully. He hates women and doesn’t really try to hide what he thinks of the highly irrational, much weaker sex. Will he ever score? He might occasionally pull because some chick thinks he’s really really clever. Mostly he just rapes women. The Reversed Knight of Pentacles. The thicko of the lot. Definitely more brawn than brains. He covers up his insecurity about lack of intellectual prowess by glassing people or biting their ear off. He likes his women looking like Barbie dolls and assumes that any woman of close to normal intelligence is a Lesbian or worse. You know you’ve accidentally started seeing one of these when you hear the words “What’s an intelligent woman like you doing with a bloke like me?” No matter how great the sex is, you won’t last 48 hours after that sentence has been uttered. THE 4 KINGS Kings...

The RESPECT Tarot Spread

The RESPECT Tarot Spread

  Respect is earned. This is true even when it comes to our relationship with ourselves: We have to earn our own self-respect by acting with integrity and being true to our word. Then we need to maintain this self-respect through right relating. Respect is part of right relating but we need to consider our levels of compassion, responsibility and ability to relate deeply as well in order to be able to maintain respect within the relationship. A person who is not met with compassion will not feel respected. Showing compassion in a relationship means that we have the best interest of the other person at heart. However, always putting the needs of others is not a sign of compassion – it is a sign of imbalance. Being responsible in the relationship means that we act on our compassion by listening actively and responding in a helpful manner so that we promote maximum growth in our partner. When we act at cross purposes with the life purpose of our partner, we disrespect both them and ourselves. And if we feel we must act this way, it is a sure sign of incompatibility. Our ability to keep our hearts open is what truly defines the relationship. A person who doesn’t feel seen through eyes of the heart of their partner will not feel respected. Keeping the heart open takes courage because it means we sometimes have to show our vulnerability. It’s easy to be reactive and shut down when we feel hurt. Questions to ask of the Tarot: 1. What do I need to work on in terms of self-respect? 2. How can I increase my compassion levels? 3. How can I encourage growth in my partner? 4. How can I make sure that I don’t shut my heart down? This is what I got: The Knight of Wands (Leo) shows me that I need to display more courage about my convictions and stand up for myself. I tend to put myself down a lot and that’s something this Knight would never do. Can I begin to own my power a bit more, Knight of Wands style? Yes, I can begin. The journey will be interesting… Justice (Libra) is one of the main Heart Chakra Tarot cards and shows me that I need to be watchful and check in on what is going on at the heart level throughout the day. I can use some of the heart chakra crystals to remind me. Aventurine and rose quartz are ideal. I can also call on Archangel Anael for help with self-love and Archangel Raguel to maintain balance and harmony. Strength (Leo) tells me that I can encurage my partner by showing him how proud I am of him. Kindness is key. Our passionate connection is a source of strength to both of us. Also: Play more together! Temperance (Sagittarius) reminds me that...
