The Wheel of fortune looks quite chaotic in this scene, but if we look closer we can see that this wild web is weaved with a greater harmony. A rainbow colored stream of light is gracing all the madness perceived. Perched atop a branch is an owl peering a the card holder. She is a reminder of the awareness we are. The wise owl sits perched within the unknown realm of the dark night. The sun beams at the bottom of the card depicting the necessary aspects of light and dark we must experience.
The Owl sees and feels all of life in the mysterious night. The unknown does not frighten her. She trusts, flying through the darkness with unwavering gratitude. The night is not something to be shunned away or frightened of. The dark of the unknown is stepping into the vastness of our inmost being. It is not only the light which we want, it is the complete acceptance of all that arises within our being. This owl is the awareness that you are, seeing everything that is occurring. She sees all which is in physical reality and also feels the subtle energies at play. This one sees and feels the dance of life from a pure and neutral space. This is our original source of seeing beyond the minds comments and feelings. The owl is a reminder to trust this one. The one that is beyond what is fleeting in this life. She says, stay here. Stay here. and when you keep seeing that which is false, those things will naturally fall to the way side because your heart is merged here, as truth.
This globe the wise one is perched on seems to be a mad mess of chaotic splendor. The owl seems to be unaffected with all that is occurring. She is simply present with what is happening. There is a feeling that the chaos is happening in some kind of perfect harmony. As if everything that is happening is necessary. Do we see this in our own life? Can we connect the dots as we look at our life and see where we are now? Can we see how the crazy ups, downs, and all arounds have only stripped us away of illusion and false identity? Can we see how all our experiences are only for the greater good leaving us with a clean spirit? Can we see how the darkness and the light play out in our lives are not higher or lower than each other but equally crucial to experience in this human form? Do we see how our authentic openness to life brings exactly what we need to evolve past our limitations? All is occurring divinely in the chaotic traffic of life. Can we see how lifes wheel of fortune is not in the things we acquire or accomplish in the physical realm, but the self that is ever present within us? This is the unchanging awareness that we all are. This is the true gold of our fortune. To discover our infinite nature that is indestructible. As we rest in this magnificent space all of life is unfolding in divine perfection. It doesn’t matter how ugly or pretty it looks on the “outside” you and only you know what you are experiencing. This is the only one that matters and this is what the Wheel of Fortune is showing you. As you stay here in truth, all is unfolding in perfection. Trust completely.
Lets be honest. Are we dipping are toes into The Wild Unknown? What does this serve? Who does this serve. This serves the limited version of who you think you are, thats it. It is not the entirety of your being. Your being is already in the water….the limitation comes in when you believe the BS your mind has to say. Yes you heard me you are already in. So those thoughts that say “You aren’t there yet, and you need to do this, this, and this first.” Not true. You are already free you just gotta start dancing. The Wheel of Fortune is revealing that as wild, crazy, painful, happy, solemn, or whatever is happening all is revealing more beauty and more love within you. So those toes that you think are dipping in? Can you see how you are already in, already here? And those toes you thought were only grazing in The Wild Unknown have already been gobbled up and swallowed whole? Here you are.
Eight of Wands depicts a circle of wands touching at the center, with a rainbow lightning bolt striking from the top. This jolt of energy has been waiting to burst forth. A creative project that has been marinating is ready to be reengaged and come to a completion. This card can also be for a new project coming forth with no distractions present. Only focus with passion is felt at this time. There is a balance here with structured action and creative raw ideas that are working simultaneously for a vision to fully bloom. The opportunity of time and creative flow is strong now.
This is not the time to allow doubt or fear creep in.
What is it that has been stirring inside ready to come forth? What project has been within that is now ready to come into being? With all the strong energy surrounding the card there are no excuses or setbacks now to complete this project. Since there is powerful energy within you now, it is wise not to grab onto another great idea to start something new. The original vision that has been brewing has cultivated many pieces of the recipe to be fully cooked now. Allow it to pour out fully with love and focus to see the magic that arises. You know this creative magic inside that has been felt.
Now it’s time to gather resources that you presently have to allow full fruition of this vision to take place.
The only thing that can hinder this progress is doubt. Many beings will allow excuses of not enough resources, money, or time to get in the way of a vision. If you think something is in your way, then the experience of life will reflect your limited belief system. If you know deeply that you have all that you need to complete a vision, life will reflect back to you this way of seeing. Any challenges which arise are only showing you where you hold doubt or fear in your heart. Allow the challenges to come and move through them. This will expand you with more trust in yourself to complete what wishes to move through. Tremendous energy is present now and you may have many ideas, possibly not sure where to begin or where to continue with your vision. Give yourself the time and space to breath and move in your naturalness, this is always moving you in accordance with your heart.
Nothing needs to be rushed and all will occur in divine timing. Trust and give yourself to life to move you in this stream with grace and ease. All power, energy, and resources are on your side.
This is a time that cannot be prepared for. A crumbling of who you think you are based on false ideas which have led to actions unaligned with spirit. This can be absolutely terrifying and exciting all at the same time. There is an internal unraveling of stagnant remnants one has given power to. These stagnant energies have been held tightly as an escape to fully allow oneself to bloom into full creative potential that is bursting inside. This time can be a period of extreme discomfort and havoc within oneself as you see it is the end of the road with what is familiar. The Wild Unknown cannot be embraced without a complete breakdown of the familiar.
To taste our own nectar we must leave all that we think we know, we must embrace that which is unseen.
Although one may try to have life in order, one will see that life itself is not something to be grasped in this way. Life cannot be grasped in this way. The more one tries to have order and perfection in ones life the more life will push back until we relax into the unknown. Exciting for some and complete chaos for another. The Tower card is the destruction of false foundations one has built an empire on. This life is only here to expose more love inside and to move in ways which are more true. As this destruction occurs it is the destruction that brings life to the authentic self. It is only grace that causes this hell to burn a fire to all that you are not. This is not a time to fear, but a time to truly celebrate what wishes to break free from false beliefs and actions. Allow this fire to burn all that you are not to make a space inside where love eradicates all fear. Your spirit is being cleansed by Grace.
As this transition occurs many insecurities and fears will arise. Allow all that is arising to be fully felt, allow the energy to arise, so it can leave the body. This is not a time to resist the darkness which arises. It is a time to feel the depth of the darkness which is present so one can fully release it. Our being encompasses all of existence, dark and light cannot be separated. One is not higher than the other for they both are required for us to be here. We could never be thankful for the contrast of the light if we cannot sit with our own darkness. We allow the darkness to move as we are present with it, acknowledging its existence within us and allowing it to move. This is when we allow fear to bubble to the surface and truly allow it to leave. Ignoring this aspect of self only allows it to grow stronger. This card is of Truth. This is the full allowance of honesty with oneself to be free of any bondage that still lingers. Our sense of security can never arise from a false life built for oneself. Anything outside of oneself will never give true security. True security can only be that of Self which needs no external world to validate its existence. One can create many false worlds within ones lifetime that seem to create some form of stability, but until we connect with the core of our nature there will never be a true satisfaction in ones life. As we let go of all we think we know we invite the deepest parts of ourself once hidden to come into being.
Allow all the discomfort of this time to be as it is. Even go as far as inviting it in. This will be strengthening and move the pain and discomfort out to let you be as you are before any false illusions of life were created.
The Mother of Pentacles gives a feeling of calm and nurturing. Depicted is a momma dear and her fawn nestled in the comfort and trust. The Mother of Pentacles is resting laying down and simultaneously completely alert with an air of serenity. Earthly colors of pale green and blue behind her are symbolizing her connection to the physical world. The light purple at the bottom of the card symbolizes her connection with spirit and how she moves intuitively in the physical world. She does not worry about her young because she knows that life will always care for her and her young. This relaxation that she feels in life is what allows her to move with great trust and ease. The Mother of Pentacles asks us to embody a relaxation in our life that allows us to move like water. As this relaxation is discovered we feel life is flowing with pure Grace supporting us.
The trust that is felt from this card is clear. Are we trusting life as we walk our path? Do we truly feel we are exactly where we need to be? Is there a feeling that we are in alignment with our heart and life or do we feel we are going against ourself in some way? This is a time to contemplate and ask, am I fooling myself being at this job or place that doesn’t serve my heart? Or am I walking with spirit completely and not looking back? When we truly start swimming in the stream that life always has available for us we see how the other way we were living was a contracted state, there is no leaving this stream. For the ones who are conflicted in how they are living, this is the time to ask why? Is it too scary to do something that makes your heart happy? Are you not allowing the love to flow from you where you see a vision? Are you wondering about your job security and what your family or friends may think? The Mother of Pentacles says trust. Trust your hearts wishes that have been stifled. One will never know how things could be if we don’t take a leap of faith. Can we agree on one thing? It is a miracle that we are here, is it not? If one takes this miracle attitude with each decision made from the heart, we will see how all things are possible. Only a thought of fear creates a separation that impedes us from doing anything. This is paralyzing for any being and it is why we don’t leave old situations for ones that serve the greatest good. At the end of the day we must ask are we siding with fear or are we listening to the calling of our heart? Life supports us when we listen to our heart. Life wreaks havoc when we go against ourselves. Can we see that? Trust. Trust your inner visions and allow them to flow without hinderance.
One pentacle is directly above the mother deers head. Pentacles represents earthly and material aspects of life. There is an illusion that if we follow our heart we won’t have any material security. This is an illusion that can quickly be seen through when we start opening ourselves to our natural hearts expression to unfold. If you believe that you are secure in a job or place now which doesn’t serve the heart you are only opening yourself enough to be secure in that place. When you open yourself to do what you truly wish to do you are allowing yourself to trust in the miracle of life that is far more secure than anything that is going against your heart. If one is suffering and in pain at a place of work how is that secure in anyway? This shows us that we are not caring about our own well being and are putting a financial security above happiness. We must ask ourself what is more important, our joy? Or a false sense of security in a job or situation that doesn’t serve our heart?
We must be courageous and take a leap of faith with what feels aligned inside.
Ten of Cups reveals the embodiment of energy which emits from our presence is exactly what will be returned to us. In this moment there is a gratitude within that doesn’t need anything from the outside to fulfill a need within. This card represents the fulfillment and deep gratitude for life that has completely shifted ones experience. When we move with this wholeness we are moving with an ease and grace that is nourishing all of life in its wake. This presence of wholeness is what heals the world, and this inner understanding needs nothing from the world to be in this naturalness. Ten of Cups emits a rainbow light stream that gives and receives equally. A perfect harmony that many seek in the world, but never find. This great peace will only be found when we stop trying to take from the world and are deeply fulfilled within. Pining for anything is pining for that which we already have.
There is a deep intuition that is embracing the flow of life. All that comes through at this time is natural and aligned with the greatest good. Any action that occurs is authentic and doesn’t need to be questioned a million times. We are simply moving with intuition and all things are miraculously opening up. Our hearts are expanding wide and the universe is matching this trust. This is a period of divine expansion. As we have given up ideas of future and past there is no longer anything to cling to. Life has stripped away all that doesn’t serve and there is a deep surrendering that has no where to go but here. As all the walls crumble, we witness the walls were built out of a lack of trust for the miracle life has to show us. We see this miraculousness shattering all illusions which kept us living a mundane life. Now the flowers bloom under our feet and we hear the messages from the universe that were previously missed. This time is not a time of worry, but a time of pure wonderment. Anxiousness for tomorrow is gone and the embrace of the unknown is here.
When this card is pulled let the only thing one must do is to say thank you. This vibration that is in your heart now is full, you are empty of previous illusion that weighed you down. Say thank you a million times as you move through this life with a clean heart and a willingness to be open. This will clean you out faster than any practice that can be done. Say thank you and know nothing. When we see we are The Wild Unknown itself we can trust in not knowing tomorrow. This is where the miracle unfolds in its majesty. There is no security in planning a future and walking a straight line. Ten of Cups says trust this unfolding and see how your heart only echoes back to you what is inside.
Six of wands reveals a butterfly flying in a pure, white sky. Below the butterfly there are mangled wands engulfed in darkness and chaos. This time is one of great ease within your being. Creatively you feel inspired and on all aspects of your being you are light and free. Instead of avoiding yourself and obstacles that come as gifts, you embrace your expansiveness and go through the fire without hesitation. Through your experiences you see that the fire you have been through has been a physical manifestation of the minds projections. You now see through this veil and are laughing as you fly above.
The butterfly is a symbol of transformation, she is showing us our limitless freedom that we naturally are. Instead of forcing your way through this life and trying to push life around you are falling into naturalness. When you discover this naturalness of yourself you are not concerned or paranoid about life. You are simply living, enjoying, and allowing life to fully move through you as divinity. You do not feel a separation from the whole and you are experiencing yourself empty of ideas and concepts that held you back before. This leaves you feeling spacious inside with no concern for what will be, you see everything you ever wanted or pined for has always been here with you wherever you go. You have always been walking as the great mystery, now the mystery has taken over you and you can no longer use your mind in the same forceful way you once did. You cannot plan a better life than the one that is already happening.
All that you have experienced in this life, darkness, light and everything in between, you see were all assisting you to embrace the great mystery you are. Your experiences have pushed you to let go of your concern for what the future will hold because you see you have always been guided in the most profound way. You see that all experiences have been unraveling the you that you thought you were. Now to see that the one you thought you were was never really there, but a figment of your imagination believed in. This was a pretending that felt you were separate from your natural movement. The Six of Wands card isn’t trying to keep itself afloat. You are simply flying freely with full grace as you are here. It is easy for you to laugh at yourself and see all the ways you limited yourself being stuck in what you thought you must do. Now you see that your movements and actions are the most natural when you are not forcing anything to happen. There is full trust and support for you when you are living in this naturalness.
Can you remember when you were trying so hard to “work things out?” Now you see when you allow yourself to move in this life and do what is most natural for you everything becomes a joyful expression. Your work and joy join forces, you are not living under a constant stress and impending doom. The Six of Wands is a celebration of not giving a fuck what anyone says but having full courage to be you….whatever that means. There are plenty of ideas of what “being yourself” is. You know what it feels like when you are in your element, when you are living with joy instead of fear. Big contrast! The deep gratitude or joy you feel -happiness, peace, contentment, serenity, you know when you feel it and that is when you are genuine. This is before you started to constantly judge who you thought you were. No one needs to understand anything about you. The Six of Wands means you have left the entrapments of judgements and fears, showing you to fly, play, and enjoy the ride. You are free of seriousness and are moving playfully as you explore the mystery.
The Nine of Wands depicts a stairwell of wild, unruly wands. The stairwell leads to a crescent moon shining above the top step. The crescent moon connects to new beginnings and turning dreams into reality. These dreams represent the dreams of the heart and divine unfolding. The vertical lines on the card are a sign to keep moving forward as we meet adversity. The obstacles and challenges we face are only refining us to strip away what is no longer needed and to leave us with what is truly in our heart to express.
The moon connects with our intuition. When we follow this subtle guide inside we are naturally aligned with our highest unfolding in this life. We are moving with what is felt, but not necessarily seen. This is jumping into the unknown with full trust when we listen deeply instead of going with the influence of others around us. Our source of intuition is the natural guide that knows exactly as we need to move. When we move against intuition we experience tremendous pain because there is a movement inside that knows we are going against our natural expression. The moon encourages us to listen to the silent one inside. True natural expression comes from this silence, not from projections of the mind. It can feel scary and we can experience many challenges. These challenges will have a different flavor because they come from joy of our natural movement and surrender to the divine. All that is faced will be designed to break down the barriers that keep us feeling limited. Only a deep gratitude and thank you will be left inside as we continue moving forward.
What is brewing inside? Are we backing away from our naturalness of being or do we use the challenges we face to strengthen us and move forward? The vertical lines on the card are asking us to trust and move forward. We may feel drained and tired, at times questioning everything. Allowing rest is helpful, but we cannot give up on the vision inside our heart. We are asked to draw upon strength. The Nine of Wands is showing us our experience won’t always be easy, however, our love and openness for life will support us fully as we live in the truth of our being. When we move as truth we cannot fail. When we move from the minds projections we are bound to fail, this is something we can only say thank you for.
Nine of Wands could also be telling us that we are so close to completing a goal but perhaps getting nervous last minute right before the magic is revealing itself. Remember, all of the energy invested into something doesn’t just dissipate unless we leave it and give up on what we have invested working on. It only vanishes if we turn our attention in another direction. We are always allowed to start fresh and go in a different direction, but we must pause and ask if there is fear of success or failure? Sometimes we like to start over because we feel it is a clean slate, and yes, sometimes this is true. But sometimes we are giving up and will be facing the same challenges no matter which direction we go until we pass through them.
Any challenge we go through is pointing us back to our self. When we move as the self we can go in any direction. If we move as a restricted version of ourself that is formed in the imagined mind we will go on many strange courses, but they will always bring us back to the self because of the deep attraction to move authentically. When we are open to truly living in this way instead of feeding the false imagined self we are already blessed. The course can go all sorts of ways, but as we move authentically we will be moving with a deeper flow within ourself that cannot be denied. We will also know without a doubt when we are not in that space and when identification of mind occurs. The Nine of Wands is revealing we cannot get away from challenges, but to embrace them as we move in this life. The preferences we have in our mind of the way life should or shouldn’t be can often get in the way of what life needs to show us in the moment.
Life has magic in each moment revealing itself when we allow it to unfold in divine perfection. Remember the challenges are all gifts allowing what is false to fall away. Let the Nine of Wands be a reminder to stay true to your heart and to allow yourself to move fully from this space.
Ace of Pentacles is a card filled with vibrant, inspiring energy. Pentacles are associated with the earth element. Ace of Pentacles is connected to the physical realm of material and financial flow in life. It is also recognition of abundance in all aspects of yourself. This can be a new idea arising that can expand into something prosperous both spiritually and financially. A new energy emerges inside you to bring a fresh outlook into your business life and expand on what you already have with this bright energy. This could also be embarking on a different journey entirely that can be more fulfilling in all aspects of your being. Because your energy is fresh and seeing with a clear vision, no matter what you do during this time there is an unending well of positivity that cannot go wrong. Although you may not know in detail what your vision is, you are trusting this clear inner voice guided purely by grace. Whether this is a period of knowing what direction you want to explore business wise or embarking on a new path, you cannot go wrong. All the forces are with you to match the energy you are feeling inside. When you are inspired, creative, and trusting of the natural unfolding, simply nothing can go wrong. Keep trusting, and carry on.
Ace of Pentacles is not only tied to material aspects of your world. When truly tapped into an understanding is known that you are limitless in what you can create. Your being has always been unbound, it is only your limitations that mask your vastness. This card is a reminder that you can play the game in any direction that sets your heart on fire and you will be supported with what sets your heart on fire. Ace of pentacles is full abundance within your life and asks you to take a look on where you are perceiving lack. Are you actually experiencing lack? Or are you simply believing that you do not have enough? When you are tapped into your authentic self you cannot lack anything. The Ace of Pentacles is a reminder that you contain absolutely everything you need. You already have everything you are looking for. If you wish to create something all the power is in you to create what you wish. What would happen instead of pining for what you want if you simply allowed yourself to create it now? Each day you are here you are given the opportunity to create beauty. If you look with eyes of infinite gratitude and compassion for life you will be beyond satisfied with what is here. It will be easy for you to create because you will see you are a powerful creative force naturally. The more you allow yourself to be as you are, in your raw authentic beauty, all forces will arise to create in alignment with this raw authenticity. This is not something separate from you, it is part of your natural movement in life. It is not something special that only certain people have. It is simply a shift from lack and thinking you don’t have enough, to seeing that you have all the tools you need already. Cosmic forces are with you, they can never not be.
You are drawn to certain forms of creation since you were a child. Take the time to look back at your interests since you were a child. Are there certain things that have stayed with you? Do you only consider them hobbies or are you investing your energy to these things which you love? Sometimes we think we are obligated to keep creating in a way that isn’t entirely fulfilling. What would happen if you knew you were fully supported by all of creation to work and play with what you love most? Wouldn’t it seem easier to move in that direction if you knew that you could and cannot lose anything besides what isn’t serving you? As you move in the direction of what sets your heart on fire you will see that it is much easier than you thought. It is only your fear that holds you back from doing what feels most authentic to you. Parents, friends, or other close people in your life may judge you. I promise you, there will always be someone who judges what you do. When you carve your own path you must be courageous in your faith of what you love. You must drop your judgements within yourself first before you can be okay with anything that anyone may say about you. Remember, it is only you that holds any judgement, whether it comes from yourself or another it is only experienced within you. Continue strong and fearlessly. Know that all forces are with you when you have faith. You are not here to fulfill anyones projections of what they think you should be or what you even think you should be. You are here to be naturally as you are and let all of creation move through you. When you are in alignment with yourself you will not lose anything of importance, only a false dream of how you thought you should be.
