There is a battle going on here, but be clear, with the powerful royal wands together, the light will erase the darkness.
The Queen of Wands is a mentally and physically robust creature who has learned the art of controlling her powerful energy so she can direct it with precision on a path to positivity and success. For as long as she can remember, the Queen of Wands has possessed an innate desire to be better than she was yesterday and approaches each challenge life has thrown at her as a valuable lesson, one that once mastered adds to her assets of strengths.
The Queen lays down the foundation for staying optimistic, even during the challenging times. It is her energy we feel when pockets of light break through on dark days. She is the one who is with us when we allow ourselves to accept a painful situation, moving forward in a positive direction, despite being wounded. In the past position, the Queen arrives as a reminder that you have a vibrant light within you and although it may become dim at times - it never goes out. Her energy is here to fan the flame.
In its nest, the crow of the Nine of Swords does not sleep. It can't. Every time it closes its eyes all it can see is negative visions, all it can feel is hopelessness. The troubles, altercations, bitterness, fear, and feelings of self-doubt that swirled around its head during the day have come to roost with the crow, and they don't rest. The anxiety the crow feels casts darkness on its spirit, one that can only be lifted by facing its fears and replacing worry with optimism.
At the heart of this spread is a feeling of anxiety, one that can have a crippling effect if it is not addressed quickly. The Nine of Swords brings the message that we are in control of this manifestation of negative emotions, and although, yes there are stressful times in life, and much to be concerned about - how much real estate we offer it in our minds compared to that of hope and optimism is solely on us.
Opposite the Queen of Wands is her royal partner the King. This is one creative, entrepreneurial creature who can take an idea and run with it until it is a complete and total success. The word "Can't" is not in this bird's vocabulary as it can hurdle any obstacle in its way with ease and grace.
The King of Wand's energy will enter your situation bringing a strong drive and the ability to find creative solutions to your current situation. But, because this royal bird does everything with flair, the solution will not be something lateral or mundane - nope not with this guy - it will be transformative. The King of Wands has the knack for finding the little, hidden gems in any ash heap. And because of this - opportunities that once may have been blocked to you in the past will now appear - leading you to a more positive and fulfilling position - one that will, in the end, prove to be a far more beneficial place to be than the place you were agonizing over.
