Message of the Moment: The Page of Wands

I've often heard that the Pages represent young people or young adults.

I don't see 18-year-olds in the Pages, specifically in the Page of Wands.  I do, however, see a male with a hairy face here holding a stick and wondering what to do with it.  A stick is multipurpose after all, and it can be turned into so many things.  And although the male appears to be young, he can simply be young-looking

Energy and potential isn't reserved for young(er) folks only.  People of all ages can possess energy and a dynamic personality, and within them the potential and drive to keep moving in the best possible direction.  It might be important to take initiative at this time.  Some of us may have to dig deep for that stuff, but it can be found-- or it can just show up when you least expect it.

Keep in mind as well that pain, particularly physical pain, isn't only experienced by older adults. It can be experienced by everyone-- "young" or "old".  Pain is universal.  Try not to let it limit you too much.

While a single wand can indicate a beginning or first step in the (re)building process, I find it may also signify a certain missing piece of a puzzle.  For those of us who have been intending to do or say certain things or behave a certain way, this card goes from intention to action.  The reason could have to do with feeling supported, having a necessary tool, honing skills, and/or acknowledging assets and/or qualities.

And there will always be fears and doubts to contend with, even in relation to things we should already know and be 'seasoned' in.  Experience doesn't always matter because not all environments operate in a way we are accustomed to-- there will be something new to learn.

Surprise! There may be something worth waking up to in the mornings.  Or, some might dive into a new type of task, project/assignment, environment, job, etc., perhaps one they wouldn't have been caught dead doing or being a part of in the past. 

Some moves will shake things up!  In times of uncertainty, be uncertain.  Be a little unpredictable.  Shake.  Be shaken (it happens to all of us).  Dance if you can.

(I used to turn maneuvering through crowds of people in the city into something of a dance.)

Finally, through the Page of Wands, it will be possible to take the lead in entertainment whether of ourselves or others.  The idea is that some would like to keep busy, active, stimulated, engaged-- time moves faster that way.

Best feet forward!



  1. Insightful as usual! I liked especially the thought that old folks--like me--can have a dynamic personality. Thank you!

Message of the Moment: The Two of Swords & Knave of Chalices

What better time to write a Message of the Moment for August than on the 4th of August?  I feel like I'm right on time here.  I mean I could have posted about August on August 10th. Or August 20th.  Or not at all... like I did about July... which we won't discuss.

OK.  Fine.  I'll share what July was (or would have been) about on this blog, and ignore a preference for, you know, moving on.

The card I drew for July was the Two of Swords.  To me, it's the very-likely-a-no card, the card that keeps you out of that super-special and/or desirable team, group, clique, effort, opportunity, event, gathering, meeting, conversation...

You might know the thing you feel (or have felt) "kept out of". 

Or, you might know the thing, situation, etc., you've deliberately (with your own two shiny gigantic swords) been keeping out of your sweet little sphere.  (And damn, I won't even fuck with you and any of that.) Because when the Two of Swords is drawn, either we are…

June's Message of the Moment: The Knave of Chalices

Well, here's a friendly face I haven't seen in a while... although, honestly, after April's draw, I'd be OK with the Tower, Death, Three of Swords, Ten of Swords, Seven of Swords, Ten of Wands, Nine of Wands, Seven of Wands, and so on and so on, etc.

So.  The Knave of Chalices, at least to me (AND KEEP DEM ONE-STAR REVIEWS COMING LIKE THIS IS EVER-FASCINATING-AND-TOTALLY-RELIABLE YELP HERE, FOLKS— thanks, I know how much my posts suck), is kindness personified.  

This card may represent an offer or invitation, a small opportunity or proposal, little tokens of appreciation, manners, compliments, toasts, and subtle acts of kindness.  For instance, think: "TG, have coffee with me."  

Then, think about TG likely having coffee with you because pretty much no one asks her to have coffee BUT.  What's important here is, TG loves coffee and it rocks her world.  Coffee may be kind of a small deal (you know, a small Knave of Chalices deal) to som…

Message of the Moment: The King of Swords

Happy September!  I couldn't decide between a yellow or silver background so I've gone with both. I'm sure the King of Swords is just thrilled with the look.

Alright, folks.  As I study the King of Swords and how it might relate to my audience, I can't help but think of the following phrases and questions:

Here we go again...
You ask a stupid question, you get a stupid answer.
What part of _____ do you not understand? 
Didn't we go over this already?
What'd I say?
Do you understand? 
Well, this is a useful conversation...
I told you so...
You just had to go there...
Really?  Seriously?
Sure, why not? I have all the free time in the world for this...
Obviously, I'm gonna have to sit down for this...
Thank you, Captain Obvious.

What I love most about the King of Swords is the look on his face.  Is he tired of our shit?  Or, has he turned his overall tiredness-over-our-shit into sarcasm?

Whatever the King of Swords represents in your life, you need to know that you'r…
