Eight of Wands

Eight of Wands

Today you want to work on bringing the divergent areas of your life into harmony, courtesy of a pair of astrological aspects that are doing the same.

With Mercury in sextile to its counterpoint Jupiter today, and Venus in sextile to its counterpart Mars, the theme will be finding a comfortable medium between the opposing forces in your life.

The Eight of Wands is traditionally associated with action and movement and there is some of that going on here. But the central themes in this version are more about protection and trust, as seen in the tiny figure nestled in the Lion’s arms.

The lion appears as a guardian angel, with a fiery mane and golden-orange wings. Notice the serpent — in the form of a lemniscate or infinity symbol — that encircles the sleeping child.

Also notice the one lion’s paw and one angel’s hand that cradle her sleeping form. A blanket of stars keeps her safe and warm. The symbols of protection and safety are repeated here, as are the themes of divergent forces residing harmoniously in the same space.

In many decks, the Eight of Wands signifies energy, motion and action. And we can surmise that the figure in this card will awaken from her sleep more rested and prepared to move ahead. But her rest is an integral part of her preparation and is just as meaningful.

You may be biding your time today or preserving your energy in preparation for something ahead. Or you could be trying to find your center in the midst of whatever turbulence surrounds you.

Whatever it is that you’re resting up for today, know that the transition from immobility to action will be made all the more harmonious by your understanding of the importance of each.
