When the court cards appear in a reading, it is time to take a look at an aspect of yourself.

It is fun to project outward, but the truth is that the people around us are just reflections of some aspect of ourself.

The Wild Unknown brings in some deep triggers with its Mother/Father/Daughter/Son cards instead of the old Page/Knight/King/Queen or Prince/Princess etc. The very words themselves are powerfully evocative and personal. Mother. Daughter. Whoa. Theres a lot of juice there. The suit of Wands is the element of Fire. Fire relates to creativity, personal expression, inspiration, spirit, and artistic urges.

Daughter of Wands is young, feminine expression of fire energy. Her wand is white with pink flowers – symbolizing her innocence and her blossoming. She has a strong will and she needs to learn from experience, but she does not recklessly seek that experience. Her curled body shows that she can be simultaneously open and self protective and wise beyond her years. She knows many deep truths on a subconscious level and she carries herself with dignity. This card reminds us of our innocence and our fire, to carefully guard our precious inspirations and blossoming artistic and psychic abilities. The black background implies the unknown, a future and potential dangers, necessitating her guardedness.

Mother of Wands is a potent symbol of the fierce, protective and nurturing feminine. This is the Mother who can be scary when it comes to protecting her young – whether that be her actual babies, or the eggs of her creative projects and inspirations. Her eggs are powerful but fragile and she will defend them aggressively if forced to. This mother is fiery, quick and smart. The Mother of Wands reminds us to fiercely guard what is precious to us – our children, our health, our true nature. She reminds us to hold our boundaries against anyone who may not have our best interest at heart.

Using snakes as the Wand family gives them a certain sexual tone which adds to the feminine power of these cards. As the daughter seems to be guarding her own innocence, the mother is working through the other side of her sexual power in mothering her eggs.

In looking at these cards, it is also interesting to see what we may project of our own mother daughter identities and relationships. What qualities are we willing to see or possibly ignore?
