It has come to that time of month – time to draw out our next monthly card, and this time around we have the King of Wands for February.
I always admire this card very much. As a reader, I’m always drawn to the King himself and the brightness and optimism that he brings with him. He is dressed in majestic red robes with a bright gold crown upon his head, emphasising his position within the suit of wands.
The king himself appears to be looking off in the distance in the same direction of which he holds his staff. Immediately, this highlights his forward thinking and how that aids him a leadership position. He may be able to see ahead of issues and solve them, or lead a team to a goal or perhaps even a a brand new business venture.
The King of Wands is natural. No false pretences, no power craze. Just a good leader wanting to fulfil a vision for him and his team.
It is also important to recognise the suit, rather than just the fact he is a king. Wands are a symbol of passion and creativity. Yet, with the King of Wands, rather than just planning and exploring ideas, he would rather seek the vision and act upon it, encouraging his followers at the same time, as we have previously mentioned.
In our lives, this card could represent that is it time to finally act upon and creative venture or business and follow through on that vision. However, instead of just following our own dreams, this card also helps us to remember to bolster others up in the process. Time to take the lead of your situation and grasp that wand of life.
That is it until March! How does the King of Wands relate to you at the moment in time?
I do hope that 2020 has been treating you well so far! From New Year’s Day, we often spend January planning things we want to achieve, actions we want to drop and projects we want to take up. Witchcraft is no different, so I have prepared a couple of Witchy Habits to help see you through 2020.
First thing first readers… we all need to stop doubting just about everything, but most of all ourselves. The choices we take, the food we eat, the dreams we aspire to, the tarot card we have chosen… all these things are doubted by millions across the globe every day, and there is no need to worry so much. You have decided something for a reason, don’t let it bring you down.
Trust your intuition
This next habit can only be achieved once we have stopped doubting everything that we do. Once we allow ourselves to go with the flow, we can then truly tune into our own gut instinct. Listening to your gut instinct however, is only one step. You then need to trust it and act upon it. Your body and sub conscious is telling you something for a reason – don’t ignore it.
Find magic in the little things
Growing up, and even now, I loved looking out the window and just looking at the world around me. I used to have a tree behind my house, which never looked the same every day. That in itself is magical. The nature around us adapts to live and thrive in the world it is in, as do we! There is magic all around us, and finding magic in the most mundane things can sometimes be the most inspiring.
Light a candle
My last habit for 2020 is lighting a candle everyday, or at least every week. Candles, even when not performing rituals or candle magic, provide a place of comfort, warmth and focus. Even lighting a tea light first thing in the morning or last thing at night, gives us a routine where we can meaningful do something to bring light into our lives. I often like to visualise or give thanks when lighting my tea lights – that is conquering two habits in one!
As you may see, none of these are particularly “witchy”; nevertheless, they are all as equally important to massive 3 hour long rituals if that is what you like to do. As I mentioned previously, it is the smaller things that can bring us ever closer to our dream life and spirituality, not to mention that we cannot expect ourselves to perfectly perform much harder things if we have not yet mastered the small tasks.
What habits are you taking up for 2020?
Before I begin, I would like to wish you all a very happy 2020. I hope you all had a wonderful festive period and I look forward to journeying through 2020 with you all.
As we have now reached 2020, it is officially time to reveal my card for the month of January. Today, I present The Sun, which is an incredibly positive card to begin not only the month with, but the year and a whole new decade.
The Sun depicts a young boy sitting on a horse rejoicing at the sun, seemingly celebrating life in it’s entirety. Right now, The Sun can relate to many in a variety of ways. Initially, the Sun represents hope, the light at the end of the tunnel perhaps and the happiness that it brings is what many wish for when starting the new year. However, it is just your standard hope, yet full on optimism.
It also highlights a feeling that I have had for the past couple of months. With radiant beams coming off the Sun, you can see why so many look at it and smile. It is a sign that things can get better, that they will get better as long as will allow them too. I have mentioned a couple of times recently to my family and friends that 2020 seems to already feel incredibly positive, a year we can all make our own, and The Sun very much emphasises this.
With optimism and happiness on our side, it reiterates that anything can be possible, which means that success and abundance can also be on the cards for many this January.
What have you got planned this month and how does The Sun relate to your life currently? Don’t forget to let me know!
