Today’s Daily Draw: Queen of Wands
I am feeling very discouraged right now. Or very overwhelmed. Or both. Both is probably the right answer. I’m also very tired and would love to have a day off, which is sad because I just came back from having days off through the holidays. But those days were full of people and plans and other distractions. I need a day off by myself. A chance to breathe without having people around asking for things.
This card is beautiful. Serene. The Queen is playing a harp made from the branches of a tree while other woodland animals sit in rapt attention. I wish I had that serenity right now, but I have no idea how to find it.
Back before the holidays, several months ago before everything went crazy, I had made a plan to go away for a weekend, just me. I had a reservation and everything at a small bed and breakfast up in the mountains. The main draw for me was that it had a balcony with a beautiful view, and also a fireplace. Due to my life imploding at the time, I had to cancel the trip. Maybe I need to try and reschedule it. Find that peace that only time in nature can bring.
The artists’ interpretation is that the Queen is confident in her power, knowing that the attention she is receiving is only her fair due. She is beautiful and alluring, but knows that these traits can be used for evil, which she guards against. I don’t really relate to this card as much today, so maybe it is something to aspire to instead. To be able to truly feel that confidence, to embrace it, and know that you deserve it. I’m a long way from that point, but maybe someday.
