The Fool, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Fool The Wild Unknown Tarot

 

The Fool, often misunderstood. Thankfully, The Fool doesn’t give a damn about opinion. He has one foot on a familiar branch and the other taking a step into the Great Unknown. The Fool is not concerned with what is to come or what has been. He lives in the moment and trusts completely. The Fool card is numbered as zero, ever present within the tarot. He has no specific order within the tarot and shows himself as unlimited potential in any direction. He is led by spirit that brought him here. The Fool has come into being to explore and learn without knowing what may come his way, but with full allowance of all that guides him.

 

The invitation here is that of trust. Trust what brought us here through all experiences that arise. The Fool is The Wild Unknown. He is innocent and open in each experience. He reminds us to give up our ideas, beliefs, and concepts of what should be, to allow life to be as it is without attaching false stories to what is. The Fool may be innocent in his appearance, but this does not mean he is not wise. He invites us to relax in our present moment freshness that is not tainted by past hurt. The Fool sees each experience as an new opportunity to live and love the sacredness of life in all forms that come. He invites us in unknown realms because he knows all is grace, even when the grace is fierce and painful. His attitude is Yes, allow me to see where I hold any limitation or fear within myself so I may walk in this life free and unhindered by self imposed limitations. He reminds us to not think we know everything and to revel and embrace uncharted territory within and without. If we think we know anything absolutely he reminds us that we block off discovering present moment beauty in the most simple way.

 

The Fool asks how do we hinder our own childlike innocence and exploration? Are we doubting ourselves and life as we move, or are we thankful for the miracle present now? As we relax into trusting life we open new doors of infinite possibility. We are not getting caught up in the mundane, but to the magic of life that is constantly inviting us to see in every moment. The Fool is one with the entirety of what is, therefore he does not doubt his experience of being. He invites us to take leaps of faith where there may be fear and to know as all is One we cannot go wrong when we trust in our heart and journey. Each unique embodiment of spirit has the opportunity to express itself fully in this life. The Fool asks if we can walk into our own heart and trust throughout all opposition that may come.

The Hierophant, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Hierophant is raising the unconscious to the conscious. He signifies bringing ancient universal wisdom and knowledge among fellow humans. The card embodies wisdom, unlocking great potential, right action through experience/understanding, and depth of sincere commitment in all aspects of life. If the Hierophant is not describing yourself it means that guidance is on its way. Something which is out of your sphere of knowing will be presented. The Hierophant is an invitation to go within and seek the answers you need or to seek a guide that could assist you. Right action that is expressed here is not only for the one pulling the card, but right action for everyone the card holder impacts. The invitation is to think on a global scale than only a personal way, which can be limiting and single minded. The Hierophant is a card of the bigger picture, not only the individual one.

 

Is there a battle between your spiritual knowledge and what is right for you? Is there a contradiction that has a missing element? This is a time to delve into what you think is true and reinvestigate beliefs or philosophies that might be outgrown and no longer serving the highest good. The Hierophant is a card to remind us to never stop learning and expanding and questioning what we may think is true. Sometimes as we come to conclusions in life or belief systems we become trapped in false ways of thinking that are no longer relevant in our lives. There is always a more subtle, and deeper depth to discover. These water are infinite. Life is always fresh when we have a childlike wonder that always is open to find out why. The Hierophant asks us to remember our childlike ways of learning so we don’t become stuck in certain ways of thinking/being that make us stagnant in our own lives.

 

The Hierophant card can also show a current or future relationship of a deep spirit based love connection. Someone who you can evolve with and bring the subconscious to light within each of you. This partnership will be the meeting of the divine to express the work that needs to be done through both of you. You are both open to being clear channels for divinity to work through you. There will be an immediate connection upon the meeting of both souls that recognizes the depth of a true connection felt. Each partner will be exposing in the other that which was still hidden inside. Because there is a willingness to be open to each other and to life there will be immense fire that burns through illusions and old karmic wounds. There is a unique potential to unite in sacred consciousness opening yourselves to be gateways for the divine to express itself on earth. If each one can allow the flow of grace, love, and genuine understanding there will be tremendous growth and sacred unity within this partnership.

Seven of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot The Magician meaning and interpretation

Six swords above the fox, one hidden underneath him. The Fox is known as the trickster. This is a time we are asked to pay extra attention where we may be deceiving ourselves, or someone close to us may be deceiving us. This can be something we may feel, but are not certain about. We are invited to draw on our resources of discernment and increase our awareness of a situation we are currently in. Paying attention to dreams can be very revealing at this time, showing us what we may not be able to see in our waking state. Seven of Swords calls for swift and immediate action on a situation. The power of this card is immediate and invites us to wake uppay attention, and act now. Choices, friendships, relationships, work, and our individual paths are at the forefront of awareness. Is there a need for immediate change or action in any of these areas? Seven of Swords calls to bring out the seventh hidden sword from under the fox. What is being hidden in an area of life and how can we bring the truth of the situation to light?

 

       There is a great deception in this card. Are these your actions or someones actions close to you? This is the first thing to discern. If the actions that are deceiving are upon yourself this is the time to acknowledge this and reflect on how this has been self inflicting pain upon oneself to change old ways. We have the opportunity to create a different world for ourself when we learn from our mistakes. The deception in this card can also indicate another in your life. Perhaps the actions of this person have gone unnoticed in many ways and they are now being seen by you more clearly. There is an effect with the choices that we make in life and that others close to us make. What is it about the current circumstance that does not align with your values? Whether it is you or another involved there is a choice and conversation that must be made. This situation one is experiencing must be communicated and looked at with complete honesty. This is not a time to run or turn away but bring out everything on the table, either for yourself or within another relationship. Honesty and Transparency will triumph here.

 

       How have you affected others in your life and how would you like to continue effecting others? This is a time to look at the past and see how you have tread and think how you would like to continue walking your path. The people in your life, are they on board with you or is their value system different than yours? As we grow and learn in life most often relationships fall away that no longer match our values and what we hold as sacred in our heart. If we remain around those who are no longer in alignment then we are not placing honor on our sacred values. We are not living with integrity. Seven of Swords leaves us with big choices because they are life altering on our path. The question is what is not just serving our personal interest, but what feels most honorable and true on a universal scale? When we begin asking questions like this we are no longer thinking about only ourself but about our friends, family, and the world at large. We become an extension of humanity as a whole instead of individual ways of thinking that can be only self serving at times. We must learn from our mistakes and learn from others so we can always be moving forward in a more positive light. If we aren’t learning from what we do and what others do we will become stagnant and stay in one frame of thinking. This can be paralyzing on many levels. We are designed to keep learning, expanding, and growing.

 

Seven of Swords is as equally about your actions as it could be another relationship in your life. As you honor your path ask if you are being swayed in any way that does not align with your soul path. There are people in life with unconscious intention of how they tread in other peoples lives. As we learn and see our own unconscious patterns we become more aware of others as we have stepped out of our own charades. So the evidence of others manipulation or deception becomes more obvious. Many times these deceptive ways are unconscious in the one doing it, but if we see something. It is our responsibility to speak up and to use our voice. This is how we share with each other and extend the opportunity to learn. We cannot change someone but maybe we can communicate something they do not see. Whether they wish to recognize it or not is up to them. Seven of Wands asks us to be cautious at this time. If you are deceiving yourself and can recognize it, this makes much easier to see and change. If it is in fact a relationship you are in, this will can be more challenging to discern. Our gut instincts are not always correct, but many times are and this is one of those circumstances that it is valid to pay attention to your initial gut response. Also to contemplate the actions, communications, and experiences that have occurred during this time. Sometimes we know an answer already, we just haven’t acted upon the evidence that is already in front of us. 

 

       The invitation of the Seven of Swords is swift action. The time is now to pay attention. The statement…The easy road isn’t always the best road comes to mind. Sometimes we have to take the more difficult decision to continue on our journey. From a broader perspective it will serve a higher purpose. If there is not clarity how to navigate the current experience take time to meditate, take time to think and write, whatever helps you see more clearly to assess the current unfolding. Sometimes sharing with someone helps if they will not be biased to the situation and evaluate all sides of the situation. That is hard to find, but an outer perspective can always give a helpful perspective. Sometimes a person outside the experience can see obviousness in what we cannot.

The Lovers, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot The Lovers meaning and interpretation

The Lovers, Two geese flying in harmony with each other while simultaneously on their individual paths. The geese have tremendous instinctive power and navigate long distances with content and bravery. They remind us to harness our intuitive strength while continuing on our journey and mission. Geese remind us to move courageously on our soul path and to not compromise our deepest hearts desire for something lesser. The Lovers know they each have their work to do and must honor and hold in integrity with their own work while merging together. A light blue hue is emanating from above the birds as they fly, giving the feeling of expansive and calm energy. This connection depicted is one of a deep union and signifies a bond on many fundamental layers of being for the two interconnected. The Lovers have the ability to fly in life together overcoming any obstacle that they encounter. Their bond travels deep as it is a divine union. Life brought these two together to assist the awakening of different aspects of each ones being. This relationship evokes each others subconscious, bringing that which must come into light. The sexual bond they share is other worldly. It is not a union for only physical gratification of the earthly realm, but a deep-rooted energetic connection that unites The Lovers beyond the body/mind.

 

The Lovers card brings Choice and Action to the forefront. There is a decision coming, or one that has already come into focus. In The Fools card there was no right or wrong answer to be made, the fool was at the beginning of his journey and at childlike stages of learning. The Lovers card is a mature card, one with more understanding and experience than the fool. The decision will change the course of the path for each individual as the decision made within the union effects the relationship as a whole. There is a blessing in disguise with the choice that is made. The decision will make a dramatic shift to ones course and direction. An invitation for meditation, reflection, and contemplation is called for now. Thinking about past actions and reflecting on life until now. It is a perfect opportunity to look at past lessons and how one has learned and matured through experiences. The current time is calling to see what you have really learned. Transparency and honesty with oneself will allow an answer to be seen with greater ease.

 

Examining how we feel and our motivation within the options available can give us more clarity towards the correct choice. The maturity of the card shows the querent is at stage of life where there is enough wisdom and inner resources needed internally to make a clear decision. The Lovers card is not always speaking of two, but also about the union with ourselves. It is allowing the many layers of our being to work in harmony to lead us in the right direction. This card is a stepping up into all the understanding, knowledge, and life experience one has been graced with along the way. As we tune into our natural power and do not murder any aspect of ourself by way of denial, the right choice becomes more visible. This is a time for slowing down and not rushing to come to an answer quickly. Allow The Lovers to be a reminder to allow the love of ones soul purpose to guide the way.
