Queen of Rods – I've got your back

Anna K Tarot Queen of Rods
Today’s card is the Queen of Rods from the Anna K Tarot.  She is the Sun incarnated. It is such a vibrant yellow card. This queen is self-confident and  self determined. She is all about making the most out of her life. Freedom to pursue her dreams and creativity is most important for her. Don’t cage her, don’t  hinder her, because then you will meet a whole other, not so pleasant part of her. Usually this queen is depicted with a cat so I tend to relate her to the goddess Freya or Bast. Both are fiery passionate solar goddesses.

As you might understand, I am thirsting for some passion and creativity in my life, which currently is still hard to find for me. So the encouragement of this card is very welcome today. I don’t  feel pushed or reprimanded by her. It feels more like she is coming to reassure me that she is still out there and that she hasn’t abandoned me.  It is almost as if she is saying: “He, it’s cool I've got your back. Don’t fret about anything. Just enjoy the first signs of Spring and try to soak up some sunshine today.”

  1. Ah, what an encouraging and refreshing sight. The sun is out here today, and your words have reminded me to get outside in it and fill my creative well with something simple - the energising, inspiring warmth of the sun. Have a wonderful day Ellen!

  2. Of all the queens, this one is the hardest for me to be. Which is a shame, because she is so amazing! ha ha ha. It was nice to have this reminder that she's still there if I need her.

    1. She has been a challenge for me too but when I connect too her motherly aspect, (which all queens have in my opinion) she becomes also inspiring and motivating instead of only being a baddass heroine.

  3. She does seem to be the Sun incarnated - such radiance. This version of the Queen of Wands makes her seem motivated by joy rather than just driven to get things done.

    1. Yes she is filled with joy. Look at her smile. Just by looking at her she'll lift you spirit :)

  4. With all those sunflowers she is surrounded by, really does feel like the Sun card in everyday Life. And who would want to spoil her day, especially since she carries her wand of magic with her.

    1. Ah that magic wand. I forgot she is also the sorceress/witch of the deck. With her at you side anything is possible. Maybe she'll; grant me a wish?

  7. This time of year can be so bleak, it's a joy to have some sunshine pour through 😄 Glad you soaked up some rays, and I hope there are some more to come.

    Now you say it, Freya is such a great match for this card: the sunshine, the sensuality, the creativity, the joy. It also reminds me of a beautiful chant: May the long time sun https://youtu.be/T8eoEv1tnTU

    1. Thank you so much for the link Chloe. The chant is so beautiful. A perfect source of light for when it is gray and cold outside:)
