Shame. Shame. I feel like I’ve neglected the Wands cards on this blog a bit. I’m more of a Swords and Cups kinda gal. But here in my Sunday Spotlight column I have a chance to redress the balance. And we’re going to start by looking at this card:
You can achieve success in various ways according to the good book Tarot. Here are the ones that stand out for me from the Everyday Tarot part of the deck.
Four of Wands: Success at bagging yourself a partner or getting people to generally wish you well using your social skills.
Six of Wands: Success achieved through natural talents or skills developed over the years. You experience this type of success after being in a job for awhile. It’s when you’ve learnt how to work the ropes to get what you want in the workplace.
Six of Pentacles: Success thanks to another party. Maybe you win Tattslotto or get an inheritance.
Seven of Swords: Success by being a master tactician or sneaky bastard. And if you’re both the world is your chupa chup (my daughter insists I say this, she doesn’t like oysters). A shout out here to our friend Lance (see previous post)!
Eight of Wands: Success at achieving something you’ve been working towards. Such as getting funding for a business idea. It’s the kind of success that comes out of the blue after a hard slog.
Nine of Pentacles: Success achieved all by yourself.
Nine of Cups: Just generally feeling successful.
As a teacher I employ many of these scenarios. I use my experience (6 Wands) and strategy (7 Swords) to maximise learning in the classroom and have benefitted from being well looked after by my bosses (6 Pentacles).
Are you experiencing any of these types of Tarot success right now in your life? You know the drill, please share.
