“In any contest, before defeat is met, there is always a moment to stop and think.”
Message from the Erin: Every once in a while, when I do our weekly reading, I pull a card that the Faeries seem pretty unwilling to give much information about. This happens to be one of those times! They insist that this is the card for this week, but they aren’t being very forthcoming with any other message, haha.
In my experience, the Six of Wands is a pretty great card to get, it’s a card of victory. It means that you get what you wanted and things will work out. Interestingly, the words that come with this particular deck and card give us a bit of a different message. The truth is, before either a win or a defeat, there is always a moment to sit and think about all the possible outcomes and make peace with whatever will happen.
I think this a pretty good message for this: win or lose, when you’ve already made peace with the outcome, it doesn’t really matter. Yeah, of course it’s great to win, but it’s also the process of trying to succeed that can the reward in itself. Sometimes when things don’t work out the way we expected them too, we soon realize that maybe we didn’t actually want what we thought we did, or we end up with something better.
The Faeries just told me: “There is no winning or losing, there is only winning”. We win no matter what. Whenever we think have lost we have actual won something that we didn’t know we needed at the time.
Keep on winning!
Love Erin (and the Faeries)
