Daily Divination 5-14-11 Relationship Communication Issue Culminating – King of Wands – Venus & Merc in Aries Grand Finale!

Yesterday the Ace of Wands and today The King… whatz’ up with that?  Seems like the cosmic messengers still want to talk about vision, inspirations and fire again today—hot topic.

Controlling all that fire and heat and guarding against over-reactivity is the gist. And using that control for inner motivation and decisiveness is the message. I cringe when I hear people blaming others or life itself when they become angry.  It serves to remind me that, whatever it is that’s ‘gotten my goat’, has nothing to do anything outside of myself. 

My mother took particular satisfaction out of ‘getting people’s goats’—she told me so on many occasions.  According to the urban dictionary, the saying “Get Your Goat” supposedly originated from the early horse racing days, where goats were kept with nervous race horses to keep them calm before the race, and if you wanted to beat the competition you would get their goat causing their horse to become agitated and unable to race. 

And speaking of one getting one’s goat…  Since the start of spring this year, I’ve had a female cardinal hanging around outside of my home.  She taps on the windows with her beak off and on throughout the day from dawn to dusk.  Sometimes I wonder if there is a connection between her and my mother (who is now in spirit world).  This bird seems to be aware of my presence in the home and will move from window to window depending upon what room I’m in.  She’s obviously some representation from within my own psyche trying to get my attention about something.  Stay tuned, I’m still trying to figure this one out!  Anyway, back to the topic.

It’s not a bad idea to double-check our self with our Self when someone’s getting our goat—note the capitalization of the word self.  Carl Jung referred to what a group of natives called the Great Man within as the Self; both were referring to the Soul, the total psyche.  What I mean is that the whole business of goat getting and reactivity is never about you and ‘them’ or ‘it’.  My suggestion is to try on the idea that it is ‘really’ about ‘you and You’ or ‘self and Self’ or ‘Ego and Soul’

Yeah, I know it’s easier to blame and project, but it is just an avoidance technique.  The King of Wands (or Rods) message today is to examine what it is within you that may require a course correction; in other words, is there a better way to use the energy?  Ever notice that when you feel angry, it seems that most everyone else you meet that day is angry too!?  Do you think that’s an accident in a world of ‘like attracts like’?  And the opposite seems true as well; when you’re in a good mood, you perceive that most everyone else is too—right?  And then there’s the real kicker… you are in a foul mood and come across someone who is bubbly and happy and you resent the heck out of them.  Have you ever been there and done that?  It doesn’t take that much contemplation, reflection or insight to figure these things out—the outer world reflects the inner.  But what of that happy person that you hit upon when you’re not?  That is the Self reminding you of your true nature right in the midst of your opposite experience.

And to be fair, we have to add into to this a mention of expectation.  It’s the same deal but just plays out differently.  I used to brace for my mother’s goat-getting attempts and when I went into her environment vowing to myself that no matter what she did or said, I would maintain my center and peace.  I was expecting her behavior and true to form, she didn’t disappoint.  But after a time, I stopped with that air-of-expectation, quit bracing myself and the whole thing shifted—my goats stayed right where they belonged!  That was so many years ago that now I can look back laugh about it—my mother was a great teacher for me in her bizarre ways!  She was quite a character and if any part of her psyche is, by any chance, inhabiting this female bird, then she still is! 

The King of Wands in tarot relates to Aries (my mother’s Sun sign by the way) and this is the archetype, if we’re discussing a person, of someone who enjoys the feeling of power and control and uses it freely.  As mentioned above, this energy can be used in a very positive way for self-motivation, courage, determination and decisiveness. 

 In some cases, goat-getting types (whether that’s you or someone else around you) are folks who are experiencing a certain degree of anxiety or emotional pain that they cannot seem to control.  We could also, find these King of Wands/Aries/excessive fire energy folks are who have digestive or stomach disorders of some type.  Balancing ‘heat’ or the inner fires aids with healing and this helps so reduce argumentative-ness too.

This archetypal energy is about drive and focus (proper competition) and creating inner motivation as well as being able to hold the focus in order to program visions on a master level.  Mastering thoughts!  Directing one’s ‘own’ destiny rather than everybody else’s!      

Fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius; although I’ve been writing here mostly about Aries which is the fire sign most associated with the King of Wands. 

When this energy is directed properly, innovative ideas and visions are acute.  Venus, Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus are all in Aries at the time this blog post is being written. 

Venus—the planet of relationships—is currently culminating her energy, closely approaching the 29th degree which is known as a “critical degree” or Anaretic degree.  Issues in relationships, as they relate to Aries/fire, are peaking and there is a sense of urgency about resolving the energy that has been building.   

Right on the heels of Venus, at the same degree, is Mercury; so communication issues in relationships (passionate or possibly angry in nature) would typically be coming to the forefront today and over the next few days as well.

Both Venus and Mercury move out of Aries and into Taurus on Monday May 16th; so look for an energy shift then.  

Take a breath and see what life is showing you about how you relate with others and how you manage your own focus.  As much as you may feel as though it is all about ‘the other’—it really is about you and You!  The other is only helping you see what it is that you need to resolve within yourself.  

By the way, issues of money may be part of the dynamic as well, since Venus rules the 2nd house of material possessions.  So heated discussions about finances  may be part of relationship dynamics–that would be no surprise.

A good affirmation for today involves something like, “I use the culminating fire energy today to be aware of directing my fire properly and acknowledge my ability to direct my own affairs and energize my own personal visions.” 

And then try to think of others warmly remembering they are playing a role for you, as always, to direct you back toward your own inner path.  No matter what your relationship status—married, separated, divorced or single—you are walking your own soul path, always, and should allow others to walk theirs. 

I hope something here will be helpful to subscribers or others who come to this post. 

Meanwhile, my  troubled, tapping feathered-friend has been at it with her beak-banging on the window the whole time I’ve been writing this post! 

I’m letting her have her experience (do I have a choice?) while I have mine. 

 What’s that ole’ song, ♫  “… you’ve got your troubles, I’ve got mine.”  ♫

I see that worried look upon your face
You’ve got your troubles, I’ve got mine
She’s found somebody else to take your place
You’ve got your troubles, I’ve got mine
I too have lost my love today
All of my dreams have flown away
Now just like you I sit and wonder why
You’ve got your troubles, I’ve got mine
You need some sympathy, well so do I
You’ve got your troubles, I’ve got mine
All of my dreams have flown away
And so forgive me if I seem unkind

You’ve got your troubles, I’ve got mine

I’d help another place, another time
You’ve got your troubles, I’ve got mine
You’ve got your troubles, I’ve got mine
You’ve got your troubles, I’ve got mi-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-ine
