Mystic Monkey: The Ace of Swords

Ahh, today’s tarot card blows in like a breath of fresh air: the Ace of Swords.

With its cool, clear simplicity, this card embodies the pure essence of the Swords suit–intellect, rationality, ideas, communication. No mincing words or getting clouded with emotion; this sword cuts to the chase with sharp insight. Easy breezy. This bodes well for achievements of the mind–our intelligence, ambition, and ideology. A call for decisiveness and ingenuity. Of the air element, this card also has a little fire to fuel our innovation and taking the offensive. It can perhaps become a little too cool and calculating, though, verging on callous and contentious.

At any rate, just looking at this card clears my muddled mind, helping me shake subjective fears to get to the heart of a matter and do what needs to be done, say what needs to be said, in a logical, reasoned manner. Or at least I try to. “Monkey Mind” is kind of an occupational hazard. 🐵

Mystic Monkey: The Queen of Wands

Hiya! Onward to Day 4 of my tarot card-a-day reflections. Only 74 more to go! 😃…😬…😦

Anyway, several cards tumbled into my lap today (whoa, hey there), but this little lady was the only one to present herself face-up.

I love her.

She’s just got it so together. She’s creative, she’s passionate, she’s fun, and she’s fiercely loving. She even has a kitty! She strikes me as a bit witchy for that reason, as if the black cat is her familiar and she can wield her wand for magic. Fiery solar plexus and sacral chakra colors here (yellow and orange), so I’m fully feeling the vibe of creative and sexual passion, confidence, joy, optimism, and drive. I have fond respect for all the queens, but the Queen of Wands is one I’d actually want to hang with. She seems full of whim yet no-nonsense at the same time, like she’d join in the laughs and be game for something totally spontaneous, but she isn’t going to take anyone’s crap and is only in it for a truly authentic experience. The sunflowers add to her charm, warm and happy as they turn to face the light, yet they’re also strong and hardy. Not delicate like other flowers. The lions add to the vim and vigor (the ones above her head look ready to party), but they can also be fierce and protective when need be–even kitten has claws and stares us down intimidatingly, still primal and superior in its evolved domesticity. The clasp on Queenie’s cloak shows her to be lionhearted as well. You want to stay on her good side. But she’s great. Loyal and lovely. Maybe a little eccentric. Very determined. I can only hope to embrace her energy today!! 🌻🌻🌻
