Harmony

This Ten of Staves(wands) has a priest using his magic wand to bring order and harmony to his thoughts and challenges.

The emblems on the priest's robe are Trigrams.  The emblems of Mother and Father, Earth and Heaven, North and South.  The Mother Trigram are the three broken lines and the Father Trigram are the three solid lines.  In the I Ching this paring would be Hexagram 11 notating  Peace, Harmony, Balance.
As I say goodbye to 2016 and begin my final turn to 2017 I can see where I began my year and the progress I have made in my life.  There has been some difficulties but out of chaos does come some clarity.  The ten of staves in traditional tarot speaks to hardship or burdens to carry, I certainly have had those in this year.  Still as the magician brings order, so does time.  2017 reduces down to 10 in turn reducing to 1, the number of new beginnings, a fresh start. Today I am going to list ten things I can do in 2017.  I can have more fun, I can choose healthy foods, I can walk more daily, I can earn a great income, I can play more, I can learn Chinese Astrology, I can do more healing, I can take two wonderful vacations, I can be prosperous, I can have peace and harmony in my life.

Wishing You 歲歲平安 Suìsuì-píng’ān – everylasting peace, year after year!

  1. beautiful take on 10 of Wands. Normal life is a burden only if we let it be so.
    I only have one orange so I'm going to roll it across the threshold six times. It is all about attitude and intent isn't it? Be well my friend.

    1. It is mostly in our thoughts and attitudes that we can project and manifest prosperity. So roll away girl. I am going to roll the oranges across the threshold and give it a whirl. Enjoy the day and the New Year that is on its way

    1. This girl just wants to have lots of fun in 2017. Joy and happiness in abundance, and then I am going to share a lots of that joy with others. Part and parcel of my "I can" year. May you have lots of fun in the New Year.
