This message is for sun/moon/rising Aquarius.
Dear Aquarius, you are holding onto something TIGHT! I see that clenched fist in the lap of the King of Wands in reverse, and the other gripping the staff with white knuckles. I sense that you feel almost militant about protecting some belief or viewpoint that others are challenging. You will not back down!
Taurus is generally recognized as the most stubborn of the zodiac but don’t forget that Aquarius is a Fixed sign, along with Taurus, Leo and Scorpio. If you are looking for someone with a firm opinion, look no further than these four.
Upright, the King of Wands has an easy, almost carefree attitude, but reversed, he sticks his heels into the ground and can be downright stubborn. I feel you simply not willing to see another viewpoint on some matter that feels closely related to justice to you. To be honest, I’m not sure if that’s a bad thing. I definitely feel, at least, that in your heart and mind, your refusal to change is because you feel deep down that you are in the right.
I really can’t counsel you otherwise, because this is simply how you feel. I know I’ll sometimes get the feeling that it’s time to change your mind but really–I’m not sure that you should in this case. Or at least not yet. I feel strength in your position, whatever the matter may be, and I feel there is a lot backing up your perspective. Something about this card in reverse really does feel like Justice to me.
The word “money” jumps into my mind so for some of you this might be a case of someone asking you for a loan and you are declining–or maybe giving less than they would like you to give, but giving what in your mind is absolutely fair and not a penny further. The king in reverse can be a bit of a baby, though, since this is the King of Fire, who typically represents Aries, the baby of the zodiac. So maybe you are being a bit stingy with your cash, but for most of you, I feel that that’s not the case. You are a good king, after all.
The time may come when you have to reassess your stubbornness. A court card in reverse is often telling us that some kind of energy is being blocked or diverted from its course and needs to be righted. My gut feeling for now, however, is that you are justified in drawing a line in the sand.
Look. I do not generally feel this way when I see so much stubbornness come up in a reading! Usually Spirit seems to be telling us to be more open to changing our perspective, allowing the soul to grow, kumbaya etc. That’s all well and good but right now, dear Aquarius, it looks like you need to stick to your guns!
