Book: Fires of the hearth, loyalty, generous, passion, strong will, and self confidence
Guidance: Know you have chosen the right path
This card makes me think of my Wendy with her beautiful face tilted to the sun. She is kind, compassionate, and generous just like the Queen of Wands. What I love about this card is that she is sitting there content in the sun, but you can feel the passion even as she sits in the sun. This is also a good reminder to me that passion doesn't always have to be frenetic, sometimes passion can be knowing what you want and sitting there and waiting to receive. This Sibyl is definitely sitting there waiting to receive and she knows she will receive. As I look at this card, I'm reminded of the Psalm that says there is a time for everything. There is definitely a time to be actively chasing your goals and doing the work required to get them, but there is also a time to sit back and receive and know that you have done the hard work required and that now you need to wait.
I love this give and take and it is such a good reminder that sometimes we do need to step back and let the wonderful things that the world has to offer come into our laps. Sometimes we are recognized and all our hard work pays off and boom we receive what we need. I know that I will move into academia and I will do the research to tie OCM and spiritual/cultural competence together. I feel it in my bones that that is what I'm meant to do, but I just don't know how. The Sibyl of Wands is telling me that it is okay to sit back and wait to receive. This is the same message that I've gotten from other cards that sometimes we have to do the work, then wait to receive.
