Six of Wands Rx: Do-It-Yourself Bright Sides

Some of the whole purge-fest I’m doing is sorting my memories and history.

There’s an incense burner I’ve been considering. I’m not kidding when I say I’m inching along here, considering things in isolation of all else.

So yes, it sounds ridiculous. But I’m considering this incense burner at length.

I really love the design. It’s a light blue ceramic dragon and it’s very cool. But the piece has got baggage.

I bought this incense burner to cheer myself up on a very hard day several years ago. It was a weepy day. A day where I felt like a failure.

A day I don’t particularly like to remember.

So what is this incense burner to me, now? Is this a physical representation of that rough day? Or is it a tangible symbol of my decision to be kind to myself when I most needed it?

In reality, it’s both. What it’s mostly is what I decide for it to be.

And that decision is the same sort of thing we’re looking at for next week.

Next Week in Tarot

Outlook is the reversed Six of Wands, with advice coming through as the Ten of Pentacles, pictured from the Radiant Rider-Waite deck.

I expect the week to feature plenty of partial wins, and that’s good news. However, it’s not all going to¬† pretty in the making, so just let yourself be okay with that. Pragmatically speaking, what choice do we have anyway?

Count your blessings, whatever they are. Make the most of what’s good. Eat, drink and be merry with whatever bounty you discover. Give yourself full permission to dismiss any losses as ultimately unimportant (because they are, whether or not it’s obvious yet).

Calling up loving feelings will help you stay grounded and centered throughout. Love will help you see blessings for what they are. Love offers clarity and direction. Love connects us to inspiration and creativity.

In fact, I’d go so far as to say love really fixes damn near everything next week. Consider it your go-to cure-all secret weapon and you’ll do well.

Are you mixing up some bright sides?
