The Daily Deskhenge:
I love the Ace of Wands. I actually love all the Aces because they seem to me to be Fate-/God-/Destiny-driven things (ideas [Swords], feelings [Cups], and projects [Pentacles]), but the Ace of Wands is special to me because it connects so directly with the idea of creation, of having a magic wand and waving that wand and making whatever you want appear out of absolutely nowhere. It feels like Harry’s first visit to Mr. Ollivander’s wand shop on Diagon Alley whenever the Ace of Wands shows up. And who hasn’t wanted a magic wand of their own? Even Mickey Mouse gets to try his hand with the Sorcerer’s wand in “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.” Of course that episode goes out of control in a hurry, and that’s the point: without knowledge and wisdom, power is a frightening agent of chaos.
That doesn’t seem to be the case here today: We’ve got the wand, and the hand of divinity weilding it, so yay on that. But there’s also a message from our Archangel Friends Jeremiel (“God’s Mercy”) and Zadkiel (“God’s Righteousness”) about the heavens being in charge, that Fate is driving things right now, and that that’s all ok. We are to have compassion on ourselves, to let go of expectations, and to let the Universe create. Our only job is to not be like Mickey: we need to leave the wand alone for right now, because who knows what we might screw up (or call up out of the depths) if we try to play bigger than our current limits.
P.S. I think it’s fabulous that in the week leading up to Pride Week celebrations, the Archangel Jeremiel (on the purple card in the center) is showing us how Divinity weilds two wands at once while looking like a cheerleader twirling flaming batons that trail glitter. The only things missing are the disco ball and the unicorn. Loud and proud, people!! Loud and proud!
