Queen Up in the New Year!


Congratulations! We’ve made it to 2018, a new year filled with new possibilities and reasons to be excited! While we can always change our vision, make a fresh start and usher in a process of rebirth, there are certain milestone times that make it easier to do this. The month of January, in our culture, is so ingrained with associations of new beginnings that it is an opportune time to align your energies with rebirth.

This also makes January a great time to connect with your Inner Queen of Wands. The Queen of Wands is associated with the element of Air and as such, she rules the powers of the mind. The superpowers she bestows on us are creativity, imagination, communication, vision and intuition.

To align with the powers of the Queen of Wands, take time to revisit your vision. What is the dream that has been circling in the back of your mind, only to be brushed aside because it doesn’t seem “practical”?

Allow your dream to resurface and let your imagination and intuition play. The Queen of Wands also represents childlike optimism and infinite possibilities, including the potential for your dream to become reality. Whether you make a New Year’s Resolution or a Vision Board, reflect in your journal or conduct a ritual for manifesting your goals, connecting with the energy of the Queen of Wands will help you get clarity on your vision and how to begin calling it in to your life.

Often we focus manifestation efforts on projecting will and ideas outward, but as the Queen of Wands also rules communication, this is an ideal time to communicate with your guides and your Higher Self. In addition to declaring what you desire through manifestation practices, it is important to take the time to listen to the guidance you are receiving. One way to do this is through meditation. Invite your Inner Queen of Wands to join you in meditation and ask for her guidance and creativity to aid you on your path, then listen, observe, allow all of your senses to be engaged in the process of receiving guidance from her.

Equally important, when working with the Queen of Wands, remember to allow for playfulness and fun! Happy New Year!
