Card of the Day: The Queen of Wands
"Stop hiding your light."
The Queen of Wands is the archetype of what we all want to be. Strong, self confident, charismatic, and self assured in her worth.
Wands in the tarot symbolize growth. This shows us that the Queen of Wands was not always so self confident. She had to overcome a fear of what others would think of her if she were to truly be herself. This is a hard lesson in courage. Rejection from others hurts!
Are you truly confident in who you are? Do you really feel your worth? Do you try to hide what gives you joy just to avoid the embarrassment you might feel if someone were to ridicule you? A lot of us like to think we don't care what others think, but are we being honest?
Front and center on the Queen of Wands' card is her black cat. For centuries black cats were considered "evil" and "unlucky" by the masses. People who owned black cats were also persecuted. The Queen of Wands loves black cats. She loves black cats so much that she put her favorite black cat in the spotlight on her card. Its as if she's saying "I don't give a fig what the bovines in the herd think of me, I love black cats."
The Queen of Wands tells you to stop fearing what people will say or think about you today. Stop hiding your light! Have courage and be who you are!
It's true that unique people tend to elicit the envy and criticism from those conformists who are fearful and insecure in themselves. But remember, anyone we truly admire, shines without apology.
