Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the Ruler of Wands (King of Wands), which is traditionally a representation of a projective alpha energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s passions, drive, determination, principles, values, and willpower. The King of Wands often indicates themes that have to do with leadership figures or authority figures with the ability to rally others to their causes and draw them in to their own values, principles, and passions.
What catches my eye today in the imagery of this card is the ouroboros that encircles the crown. The ouroboros is a symbol of the unity of all things, and the connection of the spiritual to the physical moving together in an always changing but never ending cycle. It represents the concepts of eternity and endless return.
To me, seeing the ouroboros encircling the crown says “long live the king” and in this case? The king is the authority that instills within others a sense of values and principles. It is the idol… those that we look up to and choose to follow because they are right and good… and passionate about this cause.
The message in today’s card is to appreciate those that inspire you to be a better person. Who in your life and your past has inspired you to do better and become better, to choose principles and values that matter or shown you how to stand strong in what matters most? Take time to appreciate what these people have done for you, and what you have built out of the inspiration that they sparked within you… and the inspiration that you may now be giving others in turn.

What will be my 2023 theme of evolution, growth, or change?
Change, Unlock, and Be More Witchy! – Direct your attention to the changes in your life that will help you to focus more on your spiritual path and practices.

What area, or part, of my life does this theme apply to?
Bond, Tradition, and Wonder – Your connection with your ancestors and spirit guides, and your inclination towards mediumship. Over the past couple of years you’ve worked to become more comfortable with these connections and skills, and it’s time to focus on continuing that journey.

#DiscordTarotholicsJan2023 Challenge Prompt
Question for January 10th: Peculiar People Day – How can you encourage those that are outcasts to feel more welcome?
Reading Summary: Less judgement (Judgement with Five of Coins), and provide advice in a way that is supportive instead of condescending (Sovereign of Swords).
Take Away: Sometimes? You struggle with what you perceive from others as stupidity. You need to take a pause, though, and think if it’s really stupidity, or just lack of experience that you’re observing.
You’ve experienced so much, and have a lot of good advice and guidance to give that could help these people, but it needs to be delivered in a way that keeps others receptive and doesn’t shut them down. Make sure you are not channeling your mother’s attitude or tone during these times. Selflessness combined with honesty will work far better.
