the potency of newfound strength is saturated when it meets the focus needed to make something of it. fire and earth unite this week in a beautiful array of transits and shifts, yielding many bountiful opportunities to progress, improve and master. this unlikely duo of the knight of wands and the hermit reflects the pairing of energies available to us this week.
with the sun moving into sidereal capricorn and the moon entering aries, the polarity between wanting to address what needs closure and the temptation to begin anew is at the forefront of our awareness. what can fire and earth provide for each other? how can they enhance each other’s potency and still move beyond the intense entanglement of power dynamics?
fire wants growth in every direction, with sprawling flames entering new territories and to experience first hand its own strength. earth prefers horizontal roots, to go deeper into itself, to master and refine. our impulses this week may seem conflicting, and yet all fire and earth really want is to grow and co-create alongside its resources. fire seeks new avenues to exert its strength within, and earth longs for comfort, support and the co-operation of its environment. both essentially crave to experience itself to its fullest capacity, and should have no problem assisting each other in doing so.
it would be beneficial to assess the plans you’ve been working out in your head for some time, and apply this newfound inertia towards making the strides necessary to close out this chapter. how can you best experience yourself, this week? where can your desire to blaze new paths for yourself enhance your need to stick to plans and carefully, but trustingly, bring them into form?
knight of wands speaks to new, almost undeveloped and slightly immature, energy. in this way, it is creative and embarks on journeys that the hermit may have disregarded without a second thought. rather than scoff at the ideas and suggestions that seem childish or naive, this week is an opportunity to nurture our inner child’s curiosity while applying it to our present, “adult” matters. finding creative ways to solve problems and advance our efforts might surprise us.
at the same time as our sunlight and energy reserves begin to dwindle, the hermit can impart its aged wisdom and quiet knowing on the restless knight. rather than exhaust ourselves in every direction, the hermit teaches us that it will best serve us to spend some time in reclusion and reflection. from there, we can receive clarity and begin to prioritize where to channel our efforts. our rapid fire motivation and creative overflow are only assets to us if we apply them to what aligns with our intentions. all the scenarios we’ve visualized for ourselves — the ones depicting success, adventure, happiness and comfort — will only feel that good if they are right for us.
it is necessary during this time that we know who we are, know what can encourage growth, know what is old and tired. from this quiet, deep place of resonance we can begin to birth what actually aligns with our intentions and what will facilitate growth in the healthiest ways.
