10/05/11: Do-it-Yourself Confidence | Queen of Wands



“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” –Dale Carnegie

Being pregnant with my daughter, I remember being more or less terrified of the thought of being a parent. What if I messed it up? How would I know what to do? The responsibility was staggering, and I wondered if I was up to the task. The wondering part isn’t the same as a “no” here. I ultimately decided, if you’re not nervous about some things, you’re probably not taking them seriously enough. Doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea to go ahead, though. That’s how we grow.

Today’s Tarot is the Queen of Wands or Queen of the Thrones of Flame, associated with Water (Queens) in Fire (Wands). “Passion” is one of my keywords for this queen, along with “stubborn!” Both are different sides of the same coin, after all.

I don’t see her a whole lot, at least not in personal readings. I’m more a Queen of Pentacles kind of gal—earthy, not so much fire. I ground people, help them stabilize. That’s my comfort zone. But this Queen’s energy has her place. Sometimes, we need to light a fire, too! She nudges and encourages us to do just that.

The sunflower she holds (I almost wrote “funflower”), represents joy. The bright flowers and colors on her clothing, and the candle in the background all are expressions of her light. She shines, this queen, but if you cross her, you may get a burned! Quite simply, she gets the job done. If you want to get along with her, help or get out of the way, don’t hinder! She’s good hearted, but not so much  she’ll let others take advantage or impede her vision.

The Queen of Wands reminds us to stick to our guns when it counts. She is strong and creative, and has the gravitas to make things happen. If you find your confidence wavering, hers is a great energy to call upon. She lets no one deter her, kindly but resolutely on her own path. She knows she on the right track by the passion and joy her work gives her. I call on her when I need extra energy, stamina, and a shot of confidence, especially embarking on a new adventure. She comes through.

  1. this is me, Dixie! water/fire pisces sun/asc. aries moon/venus. can be tough energy to handle, which is why i look to guides like you and Elsa with your queen of pentacles energy and her earth/expansion energy.

    i am confident when i get things done, otherwise all of my energy turns to steam and i just brood.

    your readings just keep building on one another for me lately. all of them make perfect sense and are exactly appropriate in my life now.

    and i know other people feel this way, too. how do you do that universal thing, Dixie?
    idk, but i love you for it. thanks again, as always and have a great day. :brokenheart:

  2. Ya, how do you do that thing Dixie???

    I was absolutely trying to channel passion and joy today, in the face of all those Obstacles. As resolute as Clint saying “Make my day!!!” Joy and Passion as a choice…

    :sun: :rainbow: :rose:

  3. I’ve been getting this Queen a lot. Especially when I stop stagnating and doubting and begin moving. I am stubborn, btw.

  4. The Queen of Wands has been showing up a lot for me lately. I’ve found her to be a great ally when I’m working on my creative dreams! I love this Queen!

    And I love “funflowers” too!

  5. I’m new to your site, but I am right at home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html because your posts have been so perfectly in sync with where I am these days Dixie. This Queen f Pentacles is off now to go embrace her inner Queen of Wands who needs a great deal of strengthening from within!

  6. I know this Queen all to well. Having my Asc and Moon in Leo I identify with description of her energies, and even more so at this point because Mars just started transiting my First House, and has definitely brought in a heavy dose of fire power.
