Padmes Card of the Month—Ace of Wands Powerfully Creative New Beginnings

Each month I pull a card representing the month ahead—We welcome Spring this month with the perfect New Beginnings card! The Ace of Wands is Padmes Card of the Month!

Padmes Card of the MonthMarch is pure permission to follow the path to what you want. What is your pot of gold? What are you doing each and every day to move closer to it?

Whether you’ve been on a long journey or are just wrapping one up (or if it just feels that way, thanks Mercury Retrograde, and goodbye!), the Ace of Wands offers new insight, new innovations, and new hope. This card indicates alignment with your true passions and the drive to move forward with them. Fire wants to come through you in a new way. Nothing can stop Spirit expressing through you, but you! Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Truth and direction wield decisions through Divine guidance. Fire energy from the wands is pulled into the physical to inhabit, incubate, and explode creativity into every part of your life… if you let it!

The Ace of Wands energy is true inspiration and full-on Universal support coming from within and reaching outward into the world. If you can think it, you can do it. It’s the perfect time to engage in new activities, workout regimens, and eating habits. It shows the strength of what you are capable of… You can heal yourself with every ounce of your energetic being!

This energy is pure permission to follow your creative thoughts and feelings of intuition. Your desires and thoughts and dreams grow toward you by accomplishing goals and celebrating successes along the way. It is not the time for negativity. Bringing everyone down around you will get you cast out of the faerie circle but quick. It’s also not the time to throw in the towel. No sniveling! Get going!

Career looks ridiculously fruitful if you’re working on your own terms. This can be with a group or for yourself, but the trick here has to do with managing your projects how you want them to be managed. You’re at your best this month when you do things your way!

The intense feelings of starting something new or picking up and continuing a project that you’ve put down are right on. Moving homes, having a baby, starting a new job, renewing a relationship: this card indicates a turning point in your life that is filled with adventure. You must not wait for all this to fall in your lap, however. You need to take action—Leap on the boat! Jump in the pool! Grab on with both hands! Act upon your vision of hope.

March Affirmation: “I am in alignment to and express willingly the creative fire that moves my spirit.”

The Fitting Card of the Month: 7 of Wands —Take Action to Honor Your Worth!

Padmes January Card of the MonthHappy New Year! Yes, the 7 of Wands is about making resolutions and sticking to them!

It’s time to make life changes and decisions that are long-lasting and truly beneficial for your quality of life. SELF CARE is the main idea here: the importance of knowing your worth and taking care because you hold the spark within you that is Divine. When this card is drawn there is a need for working toward better things for yourself and the betterment of situations by taking action-steps to honor your worth.

When life, situations, or your environment get rocky, the 7 of wands tells you not to back down. When you don’t feel like tuning in, do it anyway. This month is not about giving your power away. On the contrary, this month is about easily aligning with your power by deep grounding in self-acceptance. I AM That I AM, Word I AM Word. You are here for a purpose, now flow into it.

Standing up for yourself and your opinions is a must in January. “My way or the Highway” is this month’s motto. Standing your ground and leaning into your truth when it comes to career and finances will bode well for you this month.

Healthwise, you are the ultimate decider. You know what your body needs. Your friend benefits from running, but your body may be better off doing Barre class. You know which is best for you, and you don’t have to sway or be talked into anything. Do what you know is best for your body. Same goes for your diet. Your friend is vegan, and your body craves meat for its protein. Bless it and eat it. This is your intuition that tells you what is best for you.

When it comes to conflict this month, it’s imperative to hold strong on what is important to you. In the long run, your comfort with this issue(s) will make a difference in a part of your life that you don’t want to compromise on for future progression.

January is about really listening to yourself, your body and your heart. Honor your own opinion and trust your feelings in order to move forward in your flow.

Card of the Week—6 of Wands—Victory Card! (And The Moon)

Victory card!The final card of the week, the Victory card, and The Moon (Card of the Month)

That emotional and subcutaneous consciousness that, in the end, has worked in favor of all of our hopes and plans! The Six of Wands is the Victory card and with it comes the energy of support and acknowledgement.

Getting through some tough issues deserves cake.

If your projects are heart-felt and have to do with personal evolution, processing, forgiving, and letting go of some ancient history-type scenarios, you are winning. Victory is yours and you get a big gold star!

This is also a time to be supportive of others who have been focusing on forgiveness or having a good time with releasing some old, worn out thought patterns. Giving others the space to be in process is a gift not just for them, but for you.

In relationship, the six of wands signifies that partners are aware of your values, issues, and concerns and are in a place to be responsive and receptive to your needs. With The Moon at its side, this could be a long time coming… and that time is finally here. Whew. You are appreciated.

This card combo is also about healing others because you have healed yourself. Whether you have forgiven someone on your own, or both parties were able to come together and hug it out, healing that has occurred affects the energy of those around you and they will match you more so than not. Well done.

Celebrating with others can help reestablish relationships that were estranged or somehow fell off the mark for a while. You can feel good about being a supportive friend and having that reciprocated. Keep your intentions high and frequencies higher to maintain this good conclusion. A very solid way to move forward and ahead during the holidays.





October Card of the Month—Ace of Wands

Ace of WandsSometimes you don’t know you’re sitting in the dark until you see the light.—CM

Alignment of Action with Vision
The Ace of Fire is the card of purpose: Move toward your destiny. When you act out your truth, that is when your Divine light works through you.

You’re standing right where you need to be! You’re in the right place at the right time. Success in opportunity is yours! And if you’ve got career on your mind, it’s time to make some decisions and seize the day! A spark in you is ready to become a flame. Expansion in your life is abounding. Creative offers are to be taken at this time. If you’re starting something new, go for it with all you’ve got. NO procrastination, dilly dallying, or time-consuming analysis (the opposite of last month)! Jump in the pool!

Be prepared: you may be “ahead of your time” with this, so you’ll possibly have to wait for othes to catch up—but moving forward is important at this time! So keep it movin’, Boo Boo.

Grounding this energy is what brings projects, ideas, decisions, and opportunities into fruition. The foundation has secured itself, now ACTION is required to bring about the blossoms! If you’re feeling overwhelmed, it’s time to ground. This creative energy is powerful and can take you for a ride if you lose your steady connection with the earth. Use that grounding cord.

This card’s message tells us to proceed with what truly inspires and creates passion within us. This energy is lasting and helps lead us in the right direction for victory. Doing things your way right now is important. If you’re looking for employment at this time, it is important that you are honest with yourself about the contentment factor regarding all this project or position entails. Settling right now will not work out in the long run.

If you’re working on strengthening your health, losing weight, training for a marathon: this month is the perfect time to recommit to your goals. The Ace of Wands is your personal trainer! It lights up that glow in your heart and magnifies it 100 times!

It’s important to focus on projects, people, places and adventures that are exciting to you right now. Following this feeling creates joy and lasting momentum. This powerful drive can ignite your life into a whole new dynamic. One that will be more appealing than the one you’re about to leave in the dust.

It’s time to get over what holds you back. Step through it and leave it behind you. All things remaining the same in your life right now just will not do.

Card of the Week—10 of Wands—Time to Regroup and Delegate

10 of WandsComing from a place of moving forward with everything we’ve got from last week, it’s time to delegate! If you tried to take it all on yourself, you may be experiencing some stress, exhaustion, and even anxiety from doing it all alone. TheEmpressThe Empress this month is cluing us in on taking care of ourselves and taking care of others, but that can’t flow if we’re not spending time and energy wisely.

The 10 of wands this week tells us that we’re taking on too much. Taking on others’ work on top of our own, or not letting anyone else help out is what is going on here. You can’t be everywhere at once and you can’t be 10 people. You are you, and you have permission to ask for help. Get back in balance. Take the pressure off. Get your team together and regroup. When you’re overwhelmed, you can lose focus.

If you want something done right, you have to set your clear vision and let others know about it. Doing it yourself because you think no one else can help or do it right is definitely not what the Empress this month is getting at. There’s some serious joy and love that you’re shortchanging yourself.

Get back into the Joy of your goals, not just the outcome—and let up on that OCD tendancy. Remember that all the resources that you need, you have in your energy field. When you see that, you can get comfortable again in next steps. Progress and Clarity halt until you back off and regroup.

It’s critical to remember what was relevant and important about this in the first place and realign the value of your efforts.
