Stand Your Ground

“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.” ~ Abraham Lincoln The 7 of Wands is fiery Mars in fiery Leo. In a fight, this is the energy that well and truly pulls no punches. This card gives us a message that we need to stand firm and fight for what we know is right. Typically, this card shows up when people are ganging up on us. For instance, you could have decided to go down ‘the path less traveled by’ and now face a  chorus of objections, often belonging to friends and family. Turn up the volume to ‘I did it my way’ and proceed dear Earth Angel. You have permission from the ‘higher-ups’ when this card shows up. The 7 of Wands could also show up to ready you for a fight to protect the interests of someone vulnerable. In that case, it won’t be so much about signing a petition (although that is great too) but starting the campaign and getting others to sign.  This is a card of leadership and yes… aggression. Just make sure to channel it the right way – act assertively rather than with rage. Affirmation: “I have the courage to speak up for the underdog and for myself.” 7 of Wands Prayer Dear Mother-Father God (or whichever higher power you acknowledge), thank you for giving me the courage to stand my ground. Help me to protect those in my care and keep me safe. So mote it be! (listen to prayer on Instagram) Correspondences for the 7 of Wands Zodiac Sign: Leo Planet: Mars Archangel: Raziel (Angel of Leo) and Camael (Ruler of Mars) Gemstone: Red jasper, fire agate Scent: Cedarwood Deck used: The Gendron Tarot Blessed be!...

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...
