Everyday Tarot, 07/22/11: Doublecheck before Hotfooting it | Rev. Knight of Wands

knight-wands-reversed“I’m surprised you’re still in business,” the email said. It was the latest in a series of unpleasant emails. I was looking for final payment for web service, and he was looking for final shots.

It was absolutely all I could do, not to grab the bait. Good God, I wanted to snark back! I started to, several times. But then, I stopped myself and a deep breath.

What do you hope to accomplish here, Dixie?”  I mean, really, what could I expect? That he’d have a sudden Come-to-Jesus moment because of my magical retort?  He knew he was being an ass. He was going out of his way to be an ass. So, I could either grant him the buzz of noticeably disturbing me with his assiness, or I could email-filter that irritation right out of my reality. I don’t have to tell you which I picked.

vintage_hotfoot_1Today’s Tarot forecast is the Knight of Wands or “Prince of the Chariot of Fire,” associated with Air in Fire. He’s inverted, naturally, because we’re all so damn hot to trot about moving forward now—he’s got to show up as the royal party pooper, suggesting we’ll have to keep ourselves under control.

Knights have a tendency to get carried away anyhow—with ideas and ideals. They are enthusiastic, but not necessarily experienced, so we are probably looking at a raw, edgy quality surrounding circumstance. It’s bold, vivid and in full color, but reversed, it may be unfinished or incomplete.

The inverted Knight of Wands cautions us to make sure the direction we’re charging is aligned with the intended destination. The strong, sudden urge to just do is not sufficient indication of helpful, productive action. If your compass agrees, carry on! Otherwise, restrain yourself, Sparky. Don’t want to burn down the wrong house.

You have the urge to run?

  1. My favorite line is “What would like to see happen here.” It grounds me much, and yes I too have to constantly be on guard to protect myself from being sucked in.

  2. Good advice today, Dixie!

    Dreaming again – I had four pictures in hand, and was waiting for the last one. Five = change. (And waiting for the whole picture?)

    And….both knees hurt this morning. One, I’m used to – but two? Shift happening……

  3. I’ve been working on pulling in my reigns and thinking before I act..if if I think my actions are justified and needed. Right now, I’m weighing what I have to gain by acting and what I have to lose. This is a step I usally skip. Employing it this time. Pretty sure it will eventually lead to the action I’m considering but in a more refined way because in a situation where you have already lost everything but see a glimmer that you might gain something it kinda gives you a push toward that action. I can’t see that I have any more to lose in that situation. Thing is, I’ll also have to discern..is this due MY will only? Or are my actions based in what is pertinent (for the good of) to all involved. The answers are coming, along with guidance. I’ve decided to trust that and “cool my jets” for a little while.

    So..dead on Dixie.

  4. Figures. I got paid, got excited and thought, “I should order pizza as soon as they open and THEN check out business VoiP setups to see if I can get one installed next week.”

    The card’s referring to the pizza of course. lol
