A practical man, a businessman holds up a pink wand (passion, creativity) in the center (heart of the matter) of what looks to be a fenced in (personal territory) area. Six wands, three on either side of his body, are challenging him. He wears brown pants (unwavering, conservative, obstinate, stubborn) and a light yellow colored shirt (intellect). The sun above will be temporarily obscured, hidden by the moving clouds.
I’m not sure of his tactics here or his bravery but the more ground this man acquires, the more he will have to defend. He looks over his left shoulder…..it’s got to be hard to fight and look over your shoulder at the same time. And look at his feet….his stance looks very uncomfortable, unstable. The right foot is turned in and the left foot is trying to support him. The wands to the left (unfinished business) have his attention. This person’s personal turf has been invaded. It’s as if he wasn’t prepared for this onslaught….his defenses are weak. Maybe the boss or co-workers walked into his office unannounced. Immediately our guard goes up…their presence ‘initially’ makes us feel uneasy. Then our body shifts and moves…ready to defend our turf, our person!
Maybe in his report, his objectives weren’t clear enough……or those he opposed now are critical of his work or feel intimidated, threatened. They want him to elaborate his findings or change his opinions…some areas of his work needs improving, the adrenalin is running……he feels offended, defensive! His reputation is on the line. Has he enough backup to prove his findings? Or will he need to call and pull in all the wands, listen, learn, discern, expand and reconfigure.
This could be a time of a major change, an astonishing shift where we are being challenged by old expectations, strategies and habits. We find ourselves having to actively outreach and extend ourselves, and push to make those difficult contacts and decisions. This will create the momentum we need to propel and push us forward to the next level.
