The Eight of Wands upright represends the need to be in solid alignment with our inate desires. Things change quickly but we must maintain our focus on the outcome.
The Eight of Wands Upright
The world is moving at an incredible pace. We have more opportunity and information surrounding us than in no other time in history! Yoga classes are even moving online and next up will be spiritual retreat centres.
We all have dreams that we must get into the vortex with. This flow-state will help us transcend our way through this maze of life harnessing both the eneryg of the universe and our untapped energy stores.
What we must firstly start with is a laser-targetted focus. We can’t wish for too much as this is akin to the child who chases 10 rabbits. He essentially catches none!
Let’s start today in finding what our soul really craves in our work life. Since our work is going to fill a large portion of our lives, we must strive to do what we really love, not the work we loathe.
The Eight of Wands upright is a ‘Yes’ tarot card when using the Rider-Waite series. In a love reading it means the need to manifest the perfect relationship or partner through strong intensions.
When we look at this card, we see the wands flying through the air in perfect alignment. There are also two birds guiding their way. When we see a flock of birds in real life, they are in beautiful alignment.
Nature has this divine way of bringing everything together like a universal syncronicity. This tarot card means that we must find our own stride and continue moving in the direction of our dreams.
Now, things won’t always be so easy. Just remember that birds take off against the wind, not with it. These wands have found their way into the sky. They are in true alignment with where they are going with little to no resistence.
Clear the space
We carry in our lives way too much baggage. It’s the things we cling to and it’s those which also hold us back from realizing our true potential. Freedom comes once we clear the deck and return to our true essence. Yogis would call this authenticity. Either way – you cannot soar while holding on to so much.
It’s all too easy to become ‘busy’, but are we really that busy? Or are we mindlessly scrolling on Facebook to check yet another update from a friend we haven’t heard from in such a long time?
The positive changes and genuine results come from knowing our alignment. Ask yourself: What lights you up in the morning? What keeps you going when others would quit? What keeps you awake at night? What is the one thing you’d focus on if nothing else mattered?
Once we know what we’re really chasing, we can remain focused and committed to the journey ahead.
It’s important to clear the space because so many opportunities now lay before you. Go back 20 years ago and you’d be very much restricted in what you could do. Today, such limitations have been dimished because of the internet.
Indeed it’s now a level playing field. A fighting chance to build your dream business and live the life you’ve always imagined. Or at the very least, live the life that those who shine within the Law of Attraction books and movies.
We can indeed accomplish a lot in a short window of time, but this is going to take our utmost focus. We must be relentless in the pursuit and avoid the distractions. By doing so, we can remain absolutely true to our heart’s claling.
This is your time to move forward. To take that step up to the plate and begin to soar. You’ll need to move fast. This isn’t a time to flounder around and claim you’ll do it tomorrow. It’s today or nothing.
You have before you a chance. The sky is clear and new horizons are calling. It’s time to strike!
