Ground your fire with play. Passion and ambition are amazing, but you can hold your fire lightly, like an instrument, not a weapon. A playful approach keeps you in the present moment rather than trying to play only to win or plotting five moves down the line, which is another Wands approach. There's no benefit to you right now in trying to force anything to happen or pushing to get your way. The Page of Wands is a wild sapling, bursting up from the ground any old place, not a precisely planted and manicured topiary. Anytime today you feel your fire heading toward force, pull it back to the present. Make a game of it, notice one thing you're picking up from each of your senses. This is a time of new growth, leave room for the unexpected.
Page of Wands :
Learning to let ambition soften from some grabby do-it-all mindset to playful wondering, and trying things out just to see what happens, without expectations about the outcome.
The true inventor's mind, just experiencing, not controlling. Letting your inner fire be a thing you notice and play with. That's what it's here for! Wands have this amazing invitation to let go and let your energy be playful. But that requires you to accept that you can't do it all or control it all. You are not meant to control everything, nor is control actually enjoyable. It's like a drug, it doesn't satisfy a true need so you still have this craving for more. (Hello yes I struggle with control issues alll the time and I rarely feel like I'm doing "enough.")
When you can accept that (for a little while, because this is something we have to learn over and over), THAT is Page of Wands energy. Just being able to say, "I don't know what will happen next, but in this moment I feel a spark and I'm going to try out this idea and see what happens."
That approach to fire and ambition means you can be open to all possibilities, including the possibilities that this one idea may not pan out, or that it might work so well it'll take on a life of its own. Remembering you don't have control of the outcome even in your most inspired ideas and careful planning, so you might as well have some fun. And no matter the outcome, trying again and again. By not putting your energy into trying to control, you have more left to put to creative, fun use.
I'm taking this mountain message to heart, remembering that I can play and experience my fire in a grounded, way, and don't have to grind so hard.
