Knight Wands – Radiant Rider Waite Smith

This month’s card reading is the Knight of Wands from the Radiant Rider Waite deck. Here we see a young knight started out on an adventure into the unknown. Fresh creative ideas are symbolised by the shoots on the wand he holds and the energy , enthusasm and dynamisicm he displays is also shown by the salamanders on his tunic. He is confident and self assured, he has control of the horse and knows he can dirtect it where he wishs.

So this month we are likely to be experiencing the sense of adventure in our lives. We can take risks to explore new ideas, new projects and new actvities. Perhaps act in new and creative ways. Definitely a month to ‘do something different’ – as in the phrase if you always do what you always did you will always get what you always got. So do something different! Try new things out – get creative in both how you live and also make some room for creative activities – writing, art, music and other forms of self expression.

This month you are likely to have a high confidence in yourself even in the face of the unknown, and like a teenager, able to simply leap into new things feeling you can take on the world. It is also worth being mindful of the fact that though you feel confident there is still much to learn so keep your eyes open and allow yourself to learn from your experimentations and from others too. Don’t allow the fear of making mistakes hold you back – just don’t try and be right all the time. As we accept mistakes and teaching with humility and honour our own courageousness so we forge new paths for ourselves in life whatever our age.

You may find you have more energy this month than you have had and this can be put to good use. As there will be plenty of opportunities to get things done and to enjoy yourself in the month ahead. You have charge of the reigns so make sure you consciously make decisions, it is not so important what the decision is, but that you make it through choice. Your free spirit nature needs an expression this month and spontaneity will serve you well. What you gather from this experience will help you make more committed decisions in the future.

Travel might be highlighted for you this month as it is in line with the spirit of adventure. There is not a committing move to be made but exploration for the sake of it. If you are trying to make decisions with an aspect of committment behind them you might find it more difficult going this month, if you can step back from any final decisions and allow yourself more time to look at the options and to have fun with possibilities. In a few weeks it will be a better time to commit – whether to a person or a idea or new living situation. This freedom will serve you well to aid a better choice to be made and for the structure you make it within to be more to your highest good.

Have a great month, explore and create all you can and I will be back next month with further guidance for you.

This month’s card is from the Sacred Circle deck. We have Knight of Wands – key word Adventure!

This card speaks to us of following our passions – he carries the flaming torch and it lights his way. He is comfortable with the unknown and with exploration. For us to get the most out of this month we need to follow what has heart and meaning for us and release any fears of ‘what may happen if..’ Last month saw us step out of our comfort zone having realised that the lack of risk in our lives kept us trapped. Now we take those risks and are not worried or held back by ‘what if’s..’ we express ourselves in our own unique way and trust that whatever results from this is what is needed on our path forward – we may have challenges along the way but these are seen as part of the great adventure rather than something that we ‘should’ have avoided.

So greet all challenges with a creative spirit and with courage and boldness. Know all that occurs will strengthen you and enliven you even if it seems difficult at first.

Allow yourself to follow your creative impulses as this knight is a warrior of the spirit so guides us forwards in our highest expression of our true self. We might have, in the past, prevented ourselves from fully allowing our creativity out in case others judged or criticised us and what we produced. this month is time to release those restrictions and to feel the freedom of being who we truly are. Have a exploring mind, trying things out and seeing what happens, rather than feeling you need to get something ‘right’ just allow yourself to play and explore. What is discovered and what is created will show you your next steps, and will enable you to feel more and more yourself.

This knight is wearing clothing of red yellow and orange, the colours of fire – also symbolic of creativity, passion, physical activity , energy and a strong self-esteem. This month these elements within you grow and are able to be lived more fully than before. You will feel more lively, and active than usual, partly because as you have accepted yourself more fully than before you now have released energy stored within you trying to be something for someone else. Now you let go of this you find your enthusiasm for life increases and you have more energy than you would normally. You can put it to good use to actively create the future you have always wanted. Allow your joy and excitement to guide you.

As the fire of the flaming torch burns so it transforms and releases help energy, so as you transform yourself andyour situations around you so you release the trapped energy there. This may mean you find yourself releasing emotions you have held onto for a long time – doing so sets you free.

So this month take every opportunity that comes your way and looks exciting. Allow the spirit of discovery and adventure to come into your life in both simple and mundane ways as well as in grander more obvious activities. Every moment of our life can be a creative act is we stay present and see every situation with fresh eyes and containing the possibility of creative solutions each day and each moment.

Trust in yourself and your heart – it will lead you forwards into a more exciting life experience. It is a good month to try new things and to get creative in any way that draws you.
