The "ritual" I felt this card was subtly hinting at was the long over used "the way things are". Many of us (and many of "them", as there seems to be a definitive line drawn now) hear, too often, that this is how it has always been which someone means that fighting for change is useless.
This moon is supercharged by the lunar eclipse and is prepared to slingshot us forward to the remarkable energies of the solar eclipse in Leo, only 2 weeks away. The 2 of Wands tells us that we will only have this short time to wait and think what our best course of action will be.
As both someone who both engages in other energetic modalities and someone who has been a teacher of a variety of subjects, I know that adequate comprehension of a practice such as Reiki is not something that can easily be grasped effectively in such a short time.

This deck has not disappointed me in the few months that I have been using it. Many decks with softer imagery can sometimes present their information in a way that is soft.

This same process can be used to infuse crystals, ointments, lotions, salves, oils and various other aides and objects with Reiki. Using and applying these objects allows you to apply Reiki energy at those times when you may not have the time to perform a regular self healing treatment.
