Warrior of Mavhele (Earth) – Ambitious Desire

Walt Disney once said, “If you can dream it, you can do it”. 

Wanting more is not about being greedy or being dissatisfied with what we have, it’s about being single minded and dedicated to the hopes, dreams, ambitions and desires we have.  Staying true to yourself and your path.

The energy of this card is to have a clear and focused goal or end point in what it is that your desire.  This energy will help you push through the blocks or boundaries to achieve your goal.  Be flexible and adapt in order to move in new directions.

Desire is a great motivator – if we don’t have aspirations, we don’t advance.  Be it on a physical level (exercise and diet), a material level (wealth gain) or an emotional level (love and compassion), we need to constantly be evolving and growing in our selves and our outlook.   We need to think outside of the norm and be realistic about what we are able to achieve.  Unrealistic expectations end in disappointment.

Here is the paradox – while being fluid and flexible, this energy keeps us grounded and focused.  To others it may appear that we are fixed, unmovable but this is the energy that helps us stay true to ourselves and keeps us on the path we have chosen.  Don’t feel rushed, others perceive you as being pernickety but you know you are being methodical and “God is in the details”.

Be prepared to work at achieving your goals.  Its OK to take time, not everything worthwhile happens in an instant.  Clear planning, methodical means and step-by-step gets us to where we want to be.  Gather the tools of experience, insight and knowledge to aid your journey.  Remember it’s about the process – you can’t take shortcuts.  Anything worth doing is worth doing well.  If you can’t follow through then perhaps you need to re-evaluate your desires.

Taking charge of a situation is what makes it work.   Leaving too much up to others or fate often ends in undesirable results. Owning responsibility of the choices you make moves you forward.  Don’t fix it if its not broken – don’t try and reinvent the wheel, this is a time to use experience and insight gained by life or observation.  Stick with what works.

Be real and affective in your endeavours. Luxuriate in your life.  Honour your word and commitments to self and others.  Every one needs someone like you to support him or her. When the going gets tough the energy of the Warrior of Earth will see you through.

Ambitious DesireGeography of Warrior of Mavhele:  Bourke’s Luck – Mpumalanga Province, South Africa.

This impressive natural water feature at the very beginning of the Blyde River Canyon, has taken centuries of sand and rock carried by the rivers, to erode large cylindrical potholes in the river’s bedrock. Bourke’s Luck is located at the point where the Treur River (River of Sorrow) meets with the Blyde River (River of Joy) and the constantly swirling whirlpools are perhaps a fitting representation of this fact.

Warrior : Thohoyandou (Head of the Elephant) was a great king and legendary hero who expanded the VhaVenda Kingdom. During Thohoyandou’s reign, the VhaVenda Kingdom stretched from the Vhembe River (Limpopo) in the north to the Olifants River and the Crocodile River in the south. This kingdom also included people who were not Venda speaking. The Karanga of Zimbabwe was subject to Thohoyandou and the Bapedi chiefs recognised him as their sovereign. King Thohoyandou was the last king of a united Venda.
