Four of Wands Fifth Spirit Tarot Deck

At Home With The Four of Wands

We are looking for the Four of Wands“, Glenys the tarot reader told me as she laid out the black cloth with numbered boxes painted on it. She went on saying that:

“The Four of Wands is the card that indicates anything house related”.

Back home, after the unfavorable reading, I flipped through the Fifth Spirit Tarot deck on my nightstand to find the Four of Wands card.

It took me a while as the card didn’t resemble the classic Rider Waite Smith. In the RWS the Four of Wands potrayed fancy gown wearing people, garlands, grapes, flowers and a castle in the background.

There was none of it on the Four of Wands card that I was holding. There were no wands. Oil lamps have replaced the wands, surrounding a vintage cooker. Burning fire. A boiling kettle and a sizzling pan on top of it.

Could it be… breakfast food?

The image reminded me of the mornings in the Echuca farmhouse, where I was greeted by a very similar scene in the kitchen — of Fafa making us coffee and breakfast.

This card carries so much more home-ey vibe for me than the classic RWS. After all, I don’t envision a castle when I dream of my nest, but more of being greeted by a warm home-cooked meal.

I put the card on my altar for the day, to attract the new home energy that I wish for.


A Four of Wands Day

I did a different type of morning tarot drawing today. Instead of one, I took five cards. Overambitious much?? I was inspired after reading the Good Morning Tarot Spread in the Witch magazine.

The first card is the focus of the day, followed by something to be excited about and a fun healing activity. The fourth card is advice for the day and the last one being an event that might happen.

Almost all of the cards seemed gloomy and unrelatable.

I then consulted the book and read that the Four of Wands is an optimistic card, and if it appears in the reading, it is the only thing that matters.

Oh well, I carried on with my day focusing on that.

I ended up having a great night with Nikki and Liz drinking and steak night-ing at Belgium Beer cafe. It felt just like the old times.
