One Door Closes and Another Opens
And so we continue on with what is, so far, a pretty positive wand week.
On the RWS version of the Eight of Wands, all eight rods are sailing through the air against a clear, blue sky. They are on their way back to earth having spent their energy on fulfilling whatever intention was set for th
em. Or perhaps they are bringing the wand energy down to earth to manifest intent. It’s all good—the Eight of Wands is a card of endings and beginnings.
This card can signify the end of a cycle, the result of an action, an event that has taken place or perhaps all of the above. The indication here is that whatever energy is finishing up around you is coming to a natural end. It is time to complete a project, job, adventure, etc. Everything has a cycle. This ending will create a space in your life where you can begin something new. Those plans you’ve been considering and putting off because you were just too busy? As soon as those wands land, you’ll have the time and space to move on them, and the way forward will be clear.
In other words, it’s the proverbial door closing/door opening scenario, and you are ready for both. This is just as well, because the Eight of Wands doesn’t want to see you hanging around thinking about getting started. The time to act is NOW, as in this very moment. Whatever changes are coming are already in motion, and if you want to ride the wave of this energy then you better get in the flow right away as the current is flowing past.
As exciting as all this sounds, try not to rush off into something new without first having an idea of where you are going. The eight of wands indicates that, for best results, this energy needs to be used in some sort of structured framework. Let the Fool handle the spontaneous leap of faith, this is a good time for you to have a plan.
There may be news or information coming your way that will assist you. Of course, the trick is being able to discern the useful information from the background noise. To that end, try to be aware of everything around you, and trust your intuition—Sometimes the most valuable information can come from the most unlikely sources.
