Empress Card Pairing Exercise Part 2 – The Suit of Wands

This Exercise is all about making rapid connections between cards when they appear in a spread together. In this example I chose The Empress as the focus card with all subsequent cards needing to refer back to her. Instead of attempting to work with all the potential interpretations for the Empress, I decided to settle on one word for her – Woman. From there I went rapidly through each Card in the Wands Suit of The Minor Arcana, not allowing myself to dwell for too long on what they might imply.  The combinations or pairings below could have numerous alternative interpretations applied to them, but this is not about making them relevant for a particular reading, just getting the brain to make connections through free association. Why not try it yourself. You could build on this exercise by going back over it, each time adding a new connection. You might try using another focus word for the Empress as your starting base. Connections can be based on traditional tarot interpretations, intuitive responses, imagery, symbolism, numerology, free association. Just find a way that works for you. We may come back to this again to add a third card into the mix. I will continue this exercise with The Cups Suit of The Minor Arcana and post when completed.
