The Page was a student. One who served a knight. This page is in Wands. What are the lessons we need to learn. We are growing. And developing our energy.
Wands is about fire. It is about having passion. What is it which drives us in life. What is our dream. The mission of our life. This card to pointing towards events which are helping us on the path. Events may result in ends we don’t foresee. And what we fear today will no doubt be the best for tomorrow.
There are many steps to understanding our passion. Our dharma. It is said the dharma of fire is to burn. And the dharma of water is to be wet. But how many of us live our dharma. Krishna said it is better to live ones own dharma. Even imperfectly. Than to live another’s perfectly.
The future is bright for us. The next card in the deck is the knight of wands. We shall be heroes. But first we need to be a hero to ourselves. Look out for your dream. Take time and invest energy into your passion. If you don’t know what yours is this may be a good time to focus. Think about what brings you joy. What one thing makes the time pass without notice.
We all live our lives working jobs we do not love. Jobs which do not feed our soul. Imagine a world where everyone found their place. Found the one thing which fed their soul. And served the community. The more you work on being you the easier it will get. And being yourself makes it easier for others to be themselves.
When we aren’t living our dharma. We may be trying to live another person’s dharma. But this makes it harder for them to follow their path. They in turn may seek to follow another person’s path. The knock-on effect is endless. But one person on their own path. Not only serves as an example. But sets others free of competition. There isn’t meant to be a contest to serve our dharma.
A page of cups would be learning too. They have to learn about their emotions. And a page of swords is learning about their mind.
But the fire of wands is also about our own source of life. Our heart. What is it which makes us brave. Where do we find courage. Where is our love centered. Remember only love is real. So if you are not living for love. What are you living for then?
This card has come up because you are a student. We are all students. But this is pointing out lessons going on in your life now. What you are going through may not be easy. I doubt the training of a knight’s page was easy. But it is valuable. What you are doing is putting you on your path. And you may not see the whole staircase. But focus on the next step, and the next step.
This card is not a card of action. The knight takes his passion to battle. But first the knight must learn. We are not ready to put our passion into practice today. Even for those who have been very active in their dreams. This card should inspire a pause. It may be time for some to reflect on there they are on the path.
Some may get this card to refocus them on their goal. They may have forgotten their passion. In the day-to-day they lost sight of the big picture. It isn’t always easy to focus on the small steps. And the big picture at the same time. If our passion feels weaker lately. We may have lost sight of one or the other. This card is giving us space to re-focus.
