Four of Wands

Four of Wands

Today is a day for honoring the relationships you have developed with loved ones and family members.

It’s a day for rejoicing and celebrating — whether this means planning for a party or special event, or getting yourself out of the doldrums and washing away the blues.

The Four of Wands takes the “dream big” energy that came with the Three of Wands and turns it into something tangible, solid and lasting. It represents a joyous celebration: a marriage, a promotion, the birth of a child.

It tells you that “this is only the beginning” of something you’ve already established and that it’s bound to just keep getting better.

You may be planning a special event — one which will be way more fun than you are anticipating. You are likely to meet people, have fun, put your worries aside and focus instead on the promise of friendship, companionship and socializing.

This is a day or expressing love and affection for those who are there for you even when the going gets tough. It’s a day for basking in the power of love — like the two bunnies in this card.

No matter what else you’re up against today remember to be grateful for what you have. It’s not the time to isolate or withdraw from social opportunities. Look around you and take note of all you’ve accomplished thus far. Chances are good there’s a lot to be grateful for and a cause for celebration right there in front of you.

Ace of Swords

ARIES: Ace of Swords

This is a month of new thoughts and new ways of doing things. It is also a month for changing your thoughts and ideas on something.

Notice the butterfly wings around the Sword — from the Miracle Tarot. Venus turns direct this month, bringing grace, harmony, beauty and love to the forefront.

Even the sharp edges of the sword are not enough to deter the butterfly from being this near the blade. It is almost as if you can throw caution to the wind and say/do whatever you want. Well… perhaps not too much as Mercury is about to turn retrograde again.

Your thoughts are pure and aimed single-mindedly at the outcome you desire. If you have any mental tasks to accomplish do so whilst your mind is highly alert and focused on what you want.

The play of muted colours through this image give your clarity in anything creative you wish to succeed in alongside a transformative quality to the way they spring forth from your mind.

The blade looks sharp but don’t be fooled as it will not harm you as long as you stick to your principles and deliver your words with care and grace nothing will stand in your way.

Four of Fire

With the Sun conjuncting Jupiter today, it’s a good time to count your blessings for the world you’ve created and the loved ones who surround you.

You could be the recipient of good news, or an unexpected surprise; or you may celebrating an achievement that involves friends, family and those who’ve supported you along the way.

The Four of Fire speaks of rejoicing in the moment and keeping things fresh and alive, all the while thinking about the future.

It can be a joyous celebration, a gathering, a reward or surprise — the affirmation that all of your hard work has paid off and is now worthy of being celebrated.

You could be planning a party or casual get-together; or you could be making plans to attend one on someone else’s turf. Either way, it’s a time for rejoicing rather than isolating or withdrawing from social opportunities.

The Four of Fire can mark a happy occasion, such as an anniversary, engagement, wedding party, or the birth of a child. It tells you that “this is only the beginning” of something you’ve already established and that it’s bound to just keep getting better.

This card — the Japaridze Tarot’s version of the Four of Wands — heralds the completion of the first stages of a project and acts as confirmation that things are moving forward. It says that you are making progress, building on something that’s well on its way to being established, and have every reason to feel good about the foundations you’ve already laid down.

It can be as extravagant as a full-blown party or celebration and it can be as simple as developing a renewed sense of appreciation for all that you have. EIther way the Four of Fire represents an understanding that “Life is Good!” and “It’s Great to be Alive!”

Look around you and take note of all you’ve accomplished thus far. Chances are good there’s a lot to be grateful for and a cause for celebration right there in front of you.

ARIES: Justice

This month you may find it necessary to make decisions that are fair and just — without regard your personal leanings. The Justice card refers to a conscious awareness of cause and effect, action and consequence, right and wrong.

It may be a situation that you’re personally involved in, such as a relationship that tugs at your heartstrings but is not in alignment with your principles. Or you may be asked to mediate a disagreement among friends. It’s not about choosing sides. It’s about being able to tap into the “truth” objectively and impartially.

In this version of the card — from the Sun & Moon Tarot — a butterfly girl hovers in the sky behind a scale. She strives to maintain her balance using the blade of her giant sword. A flaming heart is weighed against a single white feather in the scales.

A yin / yang symbol is at the top of the scales and the Hebrew letter “tet” is at the base. Among other things, the tet  symbol refers to wisdom and truth.

The Justice card speaks of balancing head against heart and desire against logic. While we all strive to keep these areas in sync, it’s a constant and precarious battle.

Sometimes the heart rules and sometimes it’s the head. But if you rise above the situation (like the girl in the card) you’ll be better equipped to achieve perspective. Sometimes we have to get some altitude in order to see things from outside of our earthly attachments.

The Justice card encourages you to seek the answers to your most pressing concerns through objectivity and conscious awareness. If you rely too much on head, heart will suffers and vice versa. But if you can find a way to balance the two, the truth will reveal itself in the end.

Today is a good day to look around you and count your blessings for the world you’ve created and the loved ones who surround you.

You could be the recipient of good news, or an unexpected surprise; or you may be thinking of celebrating an achievement that involves friends, family and those who’ve supported you along the way.

The Firefly (or Four of Wands) — called the Four of Branches in the Animal Wisdom Tarot’s version of card — heralds the completion of the first stages of an ongoing project and acts as confirmation that things are moving forward.

It says that you are making progress, building on something that’s well on its way to being established, and have every reason to feel good about the foundations you’ve already laid down.

The Firefly can represent a joyous celebration: a marriage, a promotion, the birth of a child. It tells you that “this is only the beginning” of something you’ve already established and that it’s bound to just keep getting better.

There’s an archway in this card made up a beautiful canopy of flowers. Fireflies hover above and light the way. A four-leaf clover (symbolizing fortune and luck) rests beneath it and a sprinkling of stars shine in the night sky.

The Four of Wands is represented by Venus in Aries, which is where Venus is right now. It speaks of rejoicing in the moment and keeping things fresh and alive, all the while moving toward the future.  You could be planning a party or casual get-together; or you could be making plans to attend one on someone else’s turf.

Either way, this is a time for rejoicing and celebrating. It’s not a time to isolate or withdraw from social opportunities. Look around you and take note of all you’ve accomplished thus far. Chances are good there’s a lot to be grateful for and a cause for celebration right there in front of you.

If you look back over the past year what would your greatest accomplishment be?

This image shows your imagination running away with you and perhaps there is something that was left out for you in 2014 that you wish to carry over to 2015.

Do not be concerned that you have failed in any way as the timing may have been that you laid down the groundwork for your dream over this last year and next year you can release you dream.

The garden (your plan) is well tended. You have laid out some very impressive groundwork in getting yourself started. The four pillars are lined with symbols of growth alongside the green beacons which further shine for you and give you inspiration.

The hill in the background is vividly green even under the light of a full moon at night and this implies that you will find the answers you seek for you plan without much need for more searching.

Help will come to you and that help will be both inspirational and practical. If nothing else today you should enjoy yourself and let your imagination soar. You may have put down the practicalities of the groundwork you need for your goals but what you seek for your next step is not so practical.

Like the Unicorn in this image it may require a little magical thinking alongside a wish or two.

Keep this in mind if you are tempted to rush into action today as sitting back and daydreaming may get your further than anything else you could possibly do today.

Four of Wands

This is a day of relaxing, rejoicing and counting the blessings that surround you.

The Four of Wands is often portrayed as a joyous celebration, a gathering, a reward or surprise — the affirmation that all of your hard work has paid off and is now worthy of being celebrated.

In this version there are definite symbols of merriment and wonder: the singing birds, the ringing bells, the vibrant colors,and the glowing aura that envelopes the woman as she lifts her face to the sun.

But there’s also emphasis here on gratitude and contentment; the satisfaction that comes from being at one with the Universe, in harmony with yourself and your surroundings.

You may have been so caught up in accomplishing your goals that you haven’t had time to appreciate the progress you’ve made.

The Four of Wands says it’s ok to give yourself a chance to take a breather. It’s ok to stop and smell the flowers.

It’s ok to step back and admire all of your efforts, knowing that they continue to gather momentum and will keep on keeping on even if you decide to take a break.

Aries:  Five of Swords

If you rush into something too quickly this month you may find that it comes back to bite you.

Think of what your Achilles heel is and keep an eye on it because it may not only be you who is affected. Someone will have your back and you need to be aware that your actions do not only affect you but others also.

If you find yourself at odds within a situation do not come out fighting because if you do you may find you have done exactly what the other person wanted all along and as there is total balance in this image you don’t want to go rocking any boats to put yourself at a disadvantage.

It may be that you are on the verge of leaving a relationship, a job or simply have had enough of your life at present and want to throw it all in and start something new.

However, what you do not need is action that is not well thought out… rather you need a plan.

With an eclipse in your sign on the 8th and Mercury retrograde for a large part of the month it will be difficult to see the woods from the trees but if you can imagine glimpses of your wishes coming into reality then you get the idea of what you need to do and why it is so important to hold off for the time being.

Have you got everything in place for what you want to do next?

It may be that you are planning a project or something new and at the moment you are laying down the groundwork to how this will all fall into place for you. If so, take note to the image on this card for it may be that you need to call in some favours or help from others to accomplish what is on your mind.

With Mercury trining the south node today there is a sense that what you are planning to do is something you have been wanting for a long time. In the past you may not have been able to accomplish it because what you needed was not in the right place or it was not the right time for you but today you can start making plans and begin to see the results of your dreams coming to life.

The 4 points of the compass are clearly laid out within this image as the 4 cats hold hands and join in unison to bring everything together. The focus is on the fire within the middle which can serve as a focal point for what is needed next and as everyone is working in unison there is little chance that something will go wrong.

Do not allow a breakdown in communication although with Mercury’s placement this would be unlikely.

You may also wish to look for help from an unexpected source with Uranus close to the south node something or someone from your past may unexpectedly step forward and offer you the help you need at the moment you need it.

Today you may want to pause and reflect on how far you’ve come, as well as where you want to go in the next chapter in your life.

The Four of Wands represents the stage in a project (or relationship, decision, goal, etc.) where you feel satisfied with progress made and are now in the process of gathering momentum.

What was once a dream (the Ace of Wands) that evolved into a plan (Two of Wands) and starting producing results (Three of Wands) is now not only gathering steam but is showing real potential for long term success (Four of Wands),

In this version of the card, we see a gold ring with four wands crossing one another from the center and emanating outwardly like spokes on a wheel. Flames radiate in the center and the wands have alternating rams and doves at their tips.

This card is called “Completion” in this deck and is ruled by Venus in Aries — which is where Venus will be later today. Although Venus is said to be in detriment in Aries (as the sign opposing its ruling sign Libra), there are many positive attributes to this archetype, most notably the dynamic Aries impulse to keep things moving.

You may be looking forward to a party or celebration among friends and loved ones today. The Four of Wands often refers to a literal celebration — such as a wedding or birth of a child — but it can also indicate a time of rejoicing and celebrating happy news.

Although we don’t see dancing and merriment in this version of the card, we do see other important references to the Four of Wands — namely festive symbols of welcoming and hospitality.

There’s a decorative canopy and a basket full of sumptuous fruit; a babbling brook and foot bridge nearby, and high on the hill in the distance, a majestic castle.

The Four of Wands — like all Fours in the tarot — is not about work or productivity. It’s about taking time away —  from day-to-day chores and responsibilities — to celebrate life’s important milestones.

It’s about meeting and greeting, putting aside biases and preconceived notions and breaking bread with others. It’s also about creating new memories.

The Four of Wands not only appears as a literal celebration, it can also refer to a cause for celebration — such as an engagement, a new baby, a promotion, purchasing a new home, etc. However it manifests, you’ll want to recognize the occasion and share your joy with loved ones.

ARIES: Justice

What is your best way forward?

What options do you have?

The Justice card implies you are ready to face a situation head on with logical thought processes.

The scales held in the left hand show a balancing of all the facts whilst the sword in the right hand shows you are ready to speak with conviction once all of the facts have been weighted up.

The situation around you does not need over emotional input for you to gain a satisfactory outcome.

You must use your mind and intellect to access the outcome you are hoping for.

This may mean you need to seek counsel with a professional who can help you with your problems and tip the scales of justice in your favor.
