Don’t Forget the Stick

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Ethereal Forest Tarot - Knight of WandsToday’s draw is the Knight of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of an active projective beta energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s drive, determination, passions, motivations, values and principles, and/or inner spark.

The only thing a dog holds more sacred than his stick is his bone (which has clearly been left at home for safe keeping), and so it is off to charge out into the woods this dog goes with stick in mouth, holding on to what is most valued even as he plunges headlong into his next big adventure.

There is a lot of impulsiveness in the Knight of Wands, as it is his nature to charge forward with eagerness and boundless energy. Today’s card reminds us, though, that even as enthusiastic as we might be to dive into a new project or adventure, make sure that we don’t leave our values and priorities behind in the process. Who we are and the kind of person we wish to become should be unwavering… even in the chaotic enthusiasm of something new and exciting.

Lionharts’ #TheJanuaryTarot 2023 Year of Evolution Challenge Prompt
Question for January 5th
: Go through your deck, card by card, until you find a card that depicts what you would like to establish this month. Place it on the table then do a reading asking “What can I do to achieve this?”

Moon Magic OracleWhat You Want to Achieve Lunar Light – I don’t want to just be guided forward into the future by the faint glimmering lights of hope. I wish to collect those lights up and bring the close to me, fostering positivity and optimism in order to save myself from becoming lost in the encroaching darkness that usually begins to creep up on me at this time of year.

What can I do to achieve this?

When you feel your energy, efforts, and mood beginning wane (Waning Crescent), connect more strongly with your spirituality and spiritual practices (Taking the Moonlight), and reach out to connect with those you love to get their help in bolstering you in your efforts (Lover’s Moon).


#DiscordTarotholicsJan2023 Challenge Prompt
Question for January 5th
: National Bird Day – How can engaging socially with others lift your spirits?

Ethereal Forest Tarot - The Fool, The Magician, Death, Three of WandsReading Summary: Allow socializing with others to lighten your mood and bring a bit of frivolity into your life (The Fool). Not everything has to be so serious and in your control all the time (The Magician), and a little fun won’t hinder your ability to grow and adapt (Death), nor will it send you off course from your chosen path (Three of Wands).

Take Away: You have a habit of being too serious and always a bit too single minded.  It robs you of the joy and fun that is needed in your life. Engaging socially with others helps lift your spirits by pulling you away from that always-serious mentality and shoving you into situations where you can let go and have a little fun, and forget for a time about the fear that you’re going to “drop the ball” somewhere else in your life by cutting loose now and then with friends and loved ones.

One thought on “Don’t Forget the Stick

  1. Yeah, man, don’t let go of your stick

    Our play has been interrupted every night for the last year and some change…but I still love every moment with you. Even if sex can’t happen cuz I don’t wanna get interrupted *Chuckles* I still want you just as much. I’m still hungry for you. And I appreciate every moment
