I have been contemplating often and recently about my path and about things that I have to face, discard, settle and unify within me and in my life. Shadow work has come up quite frequently. Given all this, and the fact that I don’t adhere to one specific pagan tradition, I have been mostly growing in this organically and as a solitary pagan, I have made a list of things that I strongly believe in and that are part of my belief system. Plus, I have consciously pledged myself to my path and my Deity, now I need to conjure up a ritual to symbolize this actively conscious act. In honor of this, I share my daily draw which covered my intent and how to undertake this journey.
Wands have been recurring. I feel this is a very powerful hand. Reversed Devil, and the Seven of Wands. What I see it that, firstly, my intent is to break bonds, destroy corroded ties, face my shadows. My intent is powerful and I am well aware of the work I have cut out for me. Now, how I should embark on this journey is the most powerful of all, the card is headed forward, plowing onward. The man sits atop a cliff, holding a staff, determined and ready, virile, energetic, as if being attacked by 6 staves. This is a card of success and positive foreboding, as the man stands well high above the attacking staves, clearly at the advantage. This hand definitely cements my inner goal, intent and idea.
