THE FOUR OF WANDS, LORD OF PERFECTED WORK

Venus in Aries, Jupiter in Chesed

   In the foreground, four wands stand together, forming what almost appears to be an entry way to a festival. A decorative wreath hangs between two of the poles, bearing flowers and fruit, especially grapes, and the four wands together resemble a wedding bower. The four wands and the wreath, whether forming an entryway or a bower, suggest balance and abundance: the perfected work of the harvest has brought prosperity, peace, and harmony. Your allies in the distance, who enthusiastically wave bouquets of flowers in the air, are within the influences of Jupiter and Venus in Aries. Venus rules attraction, love, and marriage, as well as harmony in relationships. Venus, placed in a fire sign, often results in dramatic, exciting and fiery expressions of love, which can lead to short-lived, unsatisfactory relationships. On the “lower" planes (mental, emotional, and physical), Venus is an unstable influence. But in terms of the Tree of Life, your allies the Empress (Venus) and Emperor (Aries) are experiencing intense love--as well as harmony--on the spiritual plane (Wands), combined with the expansiveness and abundance of Jupiter. For your joyful allies, the realization of spiritual love--filled with compassion, the fire of the life-force, and the abundance of the heart--is the perfected work.
