The Constant Student

Page of WandsWe are motivated by a never-ending quest for new challenges, excitements and experiences. We aspire to understand the world and expand our horizons without the binds of practical considerations .We need freedom and space.

Correction: we need to find excitement and freedom within the boundaries of everyday life.

The Page of Swords represents a state of mind in which we need freedom, open spaces, new experiences and constant learning. In the defined period we need to express that part of us which is looking for change, new experiences and the broadening of our horizons.

At the same time the card indicates that we need to be wary of our tendency to seek freedom and new experiences at any price. We are so afraid of becoming too attached that we might let go of a relationship, a job, or anything else that might tie us down to our life –as positive as it might be.

We need to be aware of this tendency and understand that it might get us stuck -stopping progress in many areas of our life. Therefore, it is better if we create that which is different and new within the existing boundaries of life, e.g. together with our spouse instead of trying to find a new one.

Areas of particular relevance: Higher education, freedom, traveling abroad, gambling, luck.

Suddenly, but as a result of an on-going process, we realize what we want, crave for it and draw it into our lives

Ace of WandsThe Ace of Wands indicates that suddenly -but usually following a personal process we have completed, we realize what we want in life and know how to achieve it. We then bring ourselves to the state of mind in which we are open to receive and enjoy the desired success.

The process that had started with the change in our will, continued with our openness to accept new beginnings, discoveries and successes, and culminated in the actual attraction of whatever we want into our lives. If by chance we did not attract the desired outcome it was probably because we created it ourselves. The card shows that we have the internal inspiration and general ability to create whatever we need in our lives.

King of Wands

The entrepreneur

King of WandsWe are motivated by a strong need to express ourselves. We are impulsive and do as we wish regardless of the impact on our immediate surroundings. We can become very excited by a new venture or a new beginning but tend to lose interest once things move into a steady-state mode.

Correction: We need to learn to think more about others.

The king of Wands represents a state of mind in which we want to create and innovate, engage in new ventures, and actively promote a particular area of our lives. In the defined period we are supposed to experience a surge of energy, vitality, and a strong will to succeed in our undertaking, while enthralling others – making them share and support our goals and enthusiasm.

But, at the same time we must also consider the possibility that this sudden surge of energy and enthusiasm might make us egocentric – so while focusing on our defined target we see little else. To counter this, we must plan ahead, be less impulsive and more considerate toward others.  In addition, we need to be aware of the fact that after the initial surge of enthusiasm we tend to lose interest, slow down, and lose track of our target.

If we manage to overcome these challenges we can achieve our goals while not alienating the special people in our lives.

Areas of particular relevance: Entrepreneurship, new beginnings, new ventures, sexuality.

  Supportive Obtrusive
Relationships Charismatic, enthralling Impulsive, not paying attention, quickly losing interest
Career Having high aspirations, strong wish to act and succeed Rush, not thinking thoroughly, taking unnecessary risks
