king of wands

This reading will use the same cards as Reading 12 and addresses the locations that I will be happiest living and working.

The Setup

For this reading we will be using the following cards..

The King and Queen of Each Suit
0 Fool
XXI World

Shuffle the cards, concentrating on the question. When done dealing, deal out the top card and each consecutive card until you reach either the Fool or the World.

The Question: Where will I be happiest living?

The Deal
Queen of Coins
King of Cups
King of Wands
XXI World

The Answer

You will be happiest up in the hills, somewhere where no one can reach you. Consider heading back east. You will live in the place of your dreams.

The Cards

Queen of Coins

My take: A woman in a green dress, she is in the forest and carrying flowers. Nature is prevalent. She is wearing a crown of coins. This woman enjoys nature and the luxuries of life. She looks off into the distance instead of at us, seeming to mean she would like to be elsewhere.

The card: The queen of coins has a great appreciation for the finer things in life. She nurtures others as well as herself and enjoys creating a beautiful, serene and loving environment for the ones she loves.

King of Cups

My take: The King has strong sensitive eyes. There is a large cup in front of him surrounded by the crashing waves of the ocean. It’s like he expects something from you, like he wants the best from you. Very fatherly.

The card: The king of cups is in charge of taking all the deepest emotions and intuitions and turning them into concrete actions. He is an emotional counselor or mediator. You need to take charge of your emotional life and communicate your feelings.

King of Wands

My take: I can’t get over the crown on this guy. It is garish and imposing and kinda scary with its spikes and size. His eyes are powerful and he has a set determination that cannot be ignored. It’s like he is staring you down, waiting for you to do as he wants.

The card: The king of wands makes a difference in the world and represents politicians and leaders of all kinds. And as we see these type of people, the king is charismatic and controlling. He must control his environment and seeks to convince the world to see things his way.

XXI World

My take: The four elements (air, water, fire and earth) come together around the stars and the earth. It’s like everything is coming together as it should. Everything is aligned.

The card: Enlightenment, Completions.  But with enlightenment comes new beginnings.  Being truly enlightened also means knowing and living within your limitations and circumstances.

Reading Analysis

Well,  I would be really curious to see what method this author uses for her answers.  Not that they are wrong or don’t fit the cards, they usually do, but I am curious.  

With this reading, the answer is a little farther out than most, but I can see what the cards mean.  I can see that nature and solitude would come up for me on a place to live, although I do wonder if it was referring to a vacation for me.  I have been talking a lot lately about how I just need to get away for a little while.  Maybe a trip alone to the mountains of the east would be a good move.

I certainly like the fact that it said I will live in the place of my dreams.  I can’t wait to see where that is.

Back in Reading #1 I looked at what numerology had to say about who I am.  In this reading we will take a look at how others see me by relating that original card with a new set of cards.  

The Setup

This is a one card reading.  To find the card we will relate the cards below to my card from reading #1.

For this reading we will be using the following cards…

King and Queen of each suit
0 – The Fool
XXI – The World

My card from Reading #1 is The Hermit.

My card for this reading is the King of Wands

The Answer

You are of a studious nature.  You study everything around you, maybe too much sometimes.You assess and observe and take things apart and put them back together.  People see you as someone to ask if in need of information or assistance.  But sometimes the line can get long and you need a break.  Your life will be full of departures from the norm.  You may get too far away sometimes, but always return home.  

May the truth you seek, seek you out.

This is a great quote.  I hope my truth finds me soon.

The Card

King of Wands

My take: This is a firey red card.  His crown dominates the image, rimmed with sharp metal horns.  His eyes are striking and wise.  The checkered floor has referred to a chess board in other cards, maybe in this card it is the same, which would indicate an intellectual underpinning. The sky is all orange and swirly, the astological wheel above and behind him.  Four rods shoot fire into the sky.  There seems to be turbulence around him, yet he is very grounded.

The card: The king of wands makes a difference in the world and represents politicians and leaders of all kinds.  And as we see these type of people, the king is charismatic and controlling.  He must control his environment and seeks to convince the world to see things his way.

Reading Analysis

The answer for this question lies in the combination of the two cards (the hermit and the king of wands).  I am not one to see myself as someone to seek out for answers, but I do feel sometimes like everybody needs everything from me and that I don’t always have what’s needed from me to give out.  I definitely analyse and over analyse everything around me.  My head never shuts up.  I am working very hard to learn simply how to be present in my life and to stop thinking about everything all the time so much.  I could definitely use a break, that’s for sure.

Looking at the King of Wands by itself, I can also see how people could perceive me as controlling and trying to convince everyone that my way is best, although I don’t think this represents how I really am.  I do like to control my own environment, there is no question about that, and I have very strong opinions that I don’t hesitate to share, but my goal is never to convince others to think like me or to control them in any way.  I just really can’t help but put my two cents in.  I know I can be a little strong sometimes and I sincerely apologize if I made anyone feel at any time, like I thought I new best or better than they.
