January 13 & 14, 2019
Fun story: I pulled the two of wands on Sunday, January 13. Afterward, I “reset” my deck by sorting the suits and major arcana in order and let it rest overnight. The next morning, I shuffled and pulled my daily card and got the two of wands again. Another repeating card! (Continue reading this post for yet another repeater…)
The two of wands shows a figure looking off toward the left field of the card. To the left, the reader can see another wand and a hand holding onto it. The main figure holds in their right hand a sphere, which may be a crystal ball, and there is a protective shield adorning their left arm, lending an earthy energy to the card. Wands typically relate to a “creative” fire; I get more of an adventuring vibe from this card. I am wondering of what they are thinking as they look at, and through, the crystal ball, toward their adventuring partner.
The two of wands is an invitation. It comes just after the ace of wand, the spark of the fiery suit. It’s the planning and contemplation, the first steps of the journey. The crystal ball relates to the suit of air. I could see the figure using it to reflect and explore their feelings around the upcoming journey. The figure is on a journey to becoming themselves and realizing dreams along the way.

My other repeater — I pulled this card on December 31, 2018. This week, the relation of the three of cups to major arcana III, the Empress, came to the forefront. How can I receive the good stuff from community? How can I open up more to myself and to others?
On this day, I started Yoga with Adriene’s “Dedicate — A 30 Day Yoga Journey.” There is a cultivated and everyday magic to this card and I feel that reflected in my dedication to my at home yoga practice.

[The suit of wands in the Morgan Greer is officially named “rods,” but I still call it wands *shrug*] I really like the earth element present in this fire card. The wand itself is a large, leafy branch that comes out of the sky over a large forest. There is a sense of pride radiating from this card acting as a strong support for the Seeker. This ace is the beginning of a thrilling suit. What creative and crazy adventures await?

I am blogging my experiences here with Beth Maiden’s Alternative Tarot Course which asks students to draw a card each day, reflect on it, complete weekly readings, and other assorted exercises.
