Two of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Two of Pentacles The Wild Unknown Tarot

..::.. Two of Pentacles ..::..

The Pentacles suit is of earth energy. What is our personal connection with spirit and material abundance? How do we bring our gifts to full embodiment on this earthly plane? Two of Pentacles is a reminder to check in with practical aspects of life, bringing balance and change where we need to address the earth energy/practical matters of life and how it is a valuable part of ourself. As we are able to address what aspects of the material realm we have trouble with, we open new doors and new possibilities with how we can navigate these waters. The Two of Pentacles card is a reminder to not neglect or forget the magical or practical aspects of life as we contain the whole within us. If we fragment or deny any area of ourself we cut off parts which suffer and become out of harmony. Can we trust what resonates with our heart and bring this into the world? What action must be taken to bring magical, cosmic visions into physical reality? Two of Pentacles invites a balance of many aspects of ones being in order to bring forth what magic is felt internally.

***

As we journey earth and spirit realms we uncover more depth and beauty within ourselves. Parts that are forgotten or ignored we rediscover and begin to cultivate with our attention and energy. For many soul journeyers the material realm can be one of the most challenging. As we find ourself on this earth realm in our physical bodies, at work, and home, these are all assisting our spirit to express,grow, and tend to our gifts. To bring our insight, wisdom, and valuable experiences to this plane we cannot deny these earthly matters.  If one feels an abundance of life flowing inside but does not know how to translate that in the earth realm then what beauty desires to be shared remains within limbo. As we allow practicality, movement, and action to assist our gifts, visions, dreams, and aspirations we watch them come to life. Merging spirit with the physical world is an important part of our journey and truly magical when we can see physical fruits of what was if felt within our being come into our world.

***

As we keep an open mind and heart we can check in with what is out out of balance and why? First we have the opportunity to connect and acknowledge. What are steps that can be acknowledged to move in that direction? We can take time to be in nature and connect with ourself and the earth to inspire new ways of moving to invite in change, inspiration, and balance. As we are solid in our being our movements become fluid as we move in the direction of our heart. As we build trust and connection within our self we will gain more confidence to move in the direction that inspires us and know it can manifest in our reality when spirit & action merge. Our visions and dreams are the fire from within. As we acknowledge where we are imbalanced we bring a great internal space that naturally rebalances our earth energy, we begin to take action. Our spirit wishes to embody itself on this plane and by honoring our spirit we honor the earth realm and take action inspired by truth. Let the fire blaze from the inner vision, trust natural attractions & all lessons which continuously unfold. All experiences and people we come across are all guiding and assisting this journey. Contemplate, connect the dots, where we find ourself is no mistake. Where the journey has brought each one of us to in this moment now is fueling that which wants to birth itself into being. As we feel and connect with all elements we see that nothing can be left out.

Practical matters are just as magical as anything else if we see they are facilitating the birth of what wishes to exist in this realm.

Three of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Three of Swords The Wild Unknown Tarot
Three of Swords is bitter sweet. As painful of a time as it may be, it is an honest and transparent. All wondering, guessing, intuitive inquiring-but not quite understanding….All is crystal clear now. Painfully clear, but a great relief simultaneously. The card depicts three swords pointing downwards bound together by what looks like a mangled ribbon of blood dripping at the bottom. The background is blackened and grim behind the swords and the outer expanded energy is light. The light of truth has a way of revealing itself.
***
~Words that arise are Intuition, Avoidance, Truth Emerging, Pain, Acceptance, Choice, and Healing~
 ***
 Within this raw and fresh discovery there is the inner knowing that one has already known all along, perhaps not the entirety of what has been revealed, but the feeling of something rumbling under the waters has been felt and unknown until now. This arises a deeper trust in what has been felt and a stronger and clearer connection with intuitive abilities. Strength of intuitive abilities can come and go, strengthening and weakening depending on our connection to our own being. As we go through experiences in life we are able to learn to trust ourselves and intuition can become more clear and refined. What has or is presently being revealed in ones current experience pushes the querent back into the heart of being ~ showing what was felt, is now confirmed. As hard of an experience this may be, immense strength and internal power will rise from what has been experienced.
 ***
When avoidance is present in subtle or gross levels this leaves room for untruths to remain within the experience. Three of Swords is a great reminder that when something is felt intuitively there are times when it is important to inquire and acknowledge what is arising within ones own being. If we ignore the messages our body and internal systems are signaling, we are denying aspects our being that are trying to communicate. As we allow these messages to fully come through, we honor our spirit and strengthen our internal guidance system. If we avoid what is arising we can sever our own energetic cords, which in their natural state has the ability to work with us in harmony. The invitation here is to listen deeply and not fall into avoidance of what is showing itself.
 ***
As the truth of what has been felt emerges into full understanding, whether it be from oneself, another, or environment it may almost feel like, oh…of course. Because all along there was the internal knowing before the truth was revealed. Although it is no surprise on one hand, there is still pain to be felt from the experience and to be held in loving space. As we feel the pain as it comes we are allowing it to be seen and acknowledged within the being so it can be felt, healed, and not be stored as trauma~only to be brought up again later. Now is the time to be with this pain in whatever way one goes into their being for healing. Each one of us process, feel, and heal in different ways. There are infinite ways for this and not a right or wrong way. Processing has nothing to do with avoidance and there are some cases where a masking of a problem can temporarily feel like healing, but it is simply stored and will arise again. Whatever allows you to be with the presence of your own being will be healing. Sitting in meditation is a very simple way to get in touch and tune inside. Meditation is not the only way as we are infinite in the ways which we move. Allow your being to naturally be drawn to what feels most organic.
 ***
Painful experiences give us the opportunity to push us in ways that break down old cycles and ways of being. In many ways stripping away illusions and leaving us raw with no where to cling or grasp onto in the physical world. The pain has the opportunity to draw us inside, to fill our own cup, and to strengthen our trust within our self before relying on any-thing or anyone. Teaching us to live from the inside out. Being, giving, trusting, loving, from our expansion. When what we cling to crumbles, we are left inside with the power of our natural being to move, navigate, love, create, and be in harmony with existence. We become more open and raw and we do not deny any aspect of ourselves but dive in fearlessly that which wishes to be seen, felt, and heard. Sometime we may dive in with fear, but either way excited to dive in or fearful to do so, one is not ignoring what is arising but open to what wishes to be seen. When that which arises is dark it is not to be avoided and shamed, but to be seen, explored, loved, and accepted. There is no precise guide or map. With the presence of our own being we encompass the energy of the moon and the sun which does hold the aspects of shadow and the light. Our being becomes more integrated instead of staying on one side or another. There is depth in ones being with the willingness to look. The feeling “I don’t want to go there” simply because it is a heavier aspect of being will be noticed as avoidance and a deeper trust emerges to go within. The humanness and divinity of our being are making friends.

The Devil, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Devil The Wild Unknown Tarot

***
The Devil comes with ignoring what is present. There are aspects of ones being that wish to be looked at with more attention. Negative habits with Body~exercise/smoking/eating/drinking. Mind~thought patterns spiraling downward into illusion. Spirit~actions which are not honoring the uniqueness of ones individual being. The Devil is pointing to aspects of us that wants to run away from what is presently showing up in our experience. All that is arising in now is nothing to fear or to push away from. The Devil card wants us to acknowledge deep pain within us, to be present with what is and to allow deep subconscious rooted pain or trauma to be seen and held for it to be transmuted into light, to be healed. This card is an omen, a warning to pay attention, to be present with what is, and acknowledge the truth of what is being experienced. Everything can be looked at in a positive light if we choose to see everything as a messenger. The Devil card comes when it is time for big change that will only only lead to a happier and healthier life. We cannot cut off aspects of ourselves we do not wish to see, we must dive deeply into the abyss and create space for the subconscious to rise to the conscious and show us what wishes to be held in loving space. The light aspect of our being gives us the ability to shine the light of our awareness into the dark spaces which need our attention and love. If we cut these parts of ourself it is like cutting off a finger or a hand, it means we are only accepting a fragmented version of the totality. This creates a numbness or dead feeling within the being, sometimes we are unaware that this has happened. As we are open to holding space for our dark aspects we allow the light of awareness to free these forgotten spaces within us. The Devil card comes as a reminder to not ignore, but to pay attention, to wake up, to expand.
 ***
 We each must take full responsibility for our attention and what we are fueling within our being. Time to reflect and notice the reflections around us. How are we feeling? What is the quality of our life? Are there addictions through thought or through material life that must be broken away from, or will they be like a snake that slithers into everyday life and remain there? Now is always the right time to re-navigate and shift what is not serving or draining sweet energy. The Devil card is depicted by a smirking goat lit on fire, but not burning. Reminding us that this darkness can consume us and grow stronger if we ignore it. The power of our own awareness is what can release the bondage that is keeping us imprisoned and small. The Pentacle on the goats forehead is showing the imbalance of the harmony of life. There is too much attention on that which is transient in the world and not enough attention on the spirit. Now is the time to pause and ask where there is deception present? What is harmful within relationship with yourself, others, and all of life that is to be acknowledged and changed? There is nothing that can bind you without your own permission and agreement. We are making contracts with ourself and life in each moment. We have the ability to feed the very demons which harm the spirit or to stop allowing them to grow within us. Now is the time to see what those things are and stop being a victim in our own life. This is a time to step up beyond limitation and allow ourself to shine through limiting thoughts, beliefs, habits, and experiences. This is a time of deep expansion and immense growth if one sees this card comes as a gift instead of something to fear or look away from. What we ignore or look away from only grows in power.
 ***
The Devil can come in when one is hitting rock bottom in some area or aspect of life, maybe even all areas. More often than not when rock bottom is present major life altering changes have the opportunity to completely start a new way of living. The authentic movement of your being is wishing to emerge through these muddy waters. The lotus grows through muddy waters, untouched. What ways are you perceiving your situation that is so lowly and dark that you cannot see a glimpse of light within the chaos? There must be negative thought patterns and beliefs that keeps one in this state of victimhood. What other perspectives can be discovered to see that there is always a possibility in a new direction and that perhaps things are collapsing because many illusions are being confronted? It is something to be celebrated when we can begin to see our illusions and they fall away. Perhaps this collapse is a collapse of an old way of being for a new one to be birthed. It is important to ask, “Where am I driving myself deeper into illusion, where is the light and positive aspect of all that seems to be crumbling?” Your own death and freedom are in your own hands, hard to hear…but no one is saving anyone. Many things can be taken away in the material realm, but the truth of your being will always be free to navigate in new ways. The invitation is to sit with yourself, to be honest and transparent with what is. What changes are being asked to shift toward? We take the time to look at these cords we have attached to ourself and see that they are no longer needed. We can acknowledge their presence and say no thanks, I can unplug you now. There is a big difference between ignoring darkness and acknowledging its presence and unplugging what is no longer serving. Ignoring an aspect of our being will allow it to grow roots inside, deeper and deeper until it strangles from the inside out. This is not a time to avoid anything, but to fully embrace and acknowledge what is felt and seen. And to move from an honest, transparent, and loving space. This is the embodiment of our totality. For those who choose to not look at shadow aspects of self will be forced to look one day. The nature of the cycles of life will eventually bring everything to the surface. Avoidance is only possible for so long until life brings us a mirror we cannot refuse, but look and see what is present.

Ace of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Ace of Wands The Wild Unknown Tarot

Fire energy is radiating from one single wand. Growing off the wand are three smaller branches flowering off the main branch. The wand represents you, it is you who is flowering. The three blooms represent Mind~Body~Spirit. The ONE wand is representing the connection of all three. The internal power you are feeling is naturally blooming and merging these three aspects of you. Growth is happening on all levels, refining subtleties within you. Where you decide to point your wand your focus and attention is where you will see the most blooming. Ace of Wands is the reflection of great internal fire moving through you that where directed will expand as much as your attention presently focuses.  The nature of this card is mirroring this power that is of high momentum as choice and action merge. Choose wisely at this time what you are fueling, this energy can be wasted just as much as it can be honed in and used productively. Right now it is strong and potent. This felt power and the action are one energy. If only felt but not merged with action this fire will burn out and dim. Like any season of life some energies are here for specific times and when we are in tune with our being we can ride that energy in appropriate timing.

 

The fire that blooms within has lived experiences that create a depth that adds to all that we do. Whether we are interacting with someone we just met, starting a business, sharing space with family and friends, embarking on a new adventure, or working towards a vision that is seasoned and morphing. The experiences each one of us has lived thus far have helped us expand and grow in ways we did not plan for and in ways we could never have imagined. Life is spontaneous in its natural state, organic and fresh. When we contemplate our life and how many plans have morphed and shift we can see how we truly never know how details will work out or how discoveries will emerge and show us another part of ourselves that was ready to birth itself.  Can we trust this natural spontaneity of life that is unfolding, do we even have to ask that question or is it clear? Ace of Wands is inviting one to say yes, and to place attention on what direction feels true. Being honest and transparent one cannot fail. Your primal energy, your intuition, is not hinting or giving you cute little signs that you have to wonder about. The inner voice is loud and clear.  If you don’t move this energy it will die, it is asking for movement. There is One wand here, only one. The invitation is to focus this energy on that creative idea, business plan, whatever it is you are already working on or are ready to launch into. Focusing energy daily on this vision or idea that is present will feed the fire and extend its life.  If you are feeding the fire you will be nourishing and balancing without trying, it has the opportunity to become effortless. All the aspects of your being that are flowering are pushing through your limitations to create the vision you can already feel. Allow. Allow. And keep allowing. Intuitively, you do not need to think that much about it, you already can feel how to move. Simply act and put energy forth daily.

 

When Ace of Wands appears it is a great time to kick any habits that may be lingering that you have been feeling or trying to change. Smoking, eating habits, exercise, anything that you feel is no longer serving you and draining your energy. This clearing will only add fuel to the fire and create clean and healthy space to encourage your blooming. It’s time to think if you don’t want to be doing this habit in 10 or 20 years do not keep feeding it now. Or, if you want to see something new integrated within your life now is the time to invite it in. Habits you abandon or invite in will stick at this time and become as natural as brushing your teeth, unless you suck at that…then bad example. Ace of Wands invites spring cleaning in all aspects you feel can use change. Cleaning the space which you live, Getting rid of what you don’t use and having a fresh space for your work, home, creative spaces. All of this will assist in putting your attention where it is intuitively wanting to move. Letting go of old dusty stuff that doesn’t matter, internally and externally. Enjoy the alive, clean, forward moving energy present. One can completely invest in that which you are organically allured by. Trust this natural cleaning energy and the fire that is present to move you. It is not blind faith, your intuition is guiding you in the right direction.

Trust in yourself is growing and maturing.

Justice, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Justice The Wild Unknown Tarot

Justice. What is being served? What have you been serving to yourself and the world? We are transparent creatures. If we hide from ourselves we close the doors of Justice and Truth. Sometimes we find what we hide can really not remain hidden for long. The rivers of life are always flowing and they do not leave anything within the being untouched. Every dark and light corner will be seen. The Justice Card is looking right at you. A white and black cat with tails intertwined peer into you, seeing what perhaps is time to take a closer look at. The cats reflect the wholeness of you. The light and the dark aspects of life, and of you. If you couldn’t tell already….this card screams pay attention! Something is coming up now that demands all of you. Not just part of you, not just a taste….its all or nothing! This is an exciting time, or at least it has the possibility of being looked at in this light. When Justice is served it means honesty, transparency, and vulnerability with yourself and others. These shifts of honesty, vulnerability, and transparency will shift ones life dramatically. When things feel uncomfortable and unknown the invitation is to be honest with ourselves in the present moment, although we do not always know the answer or solution to a situation. Sometimes we will not know and we can relax in this unknown space as much as we can relax when an answer arises. We cannot rely only on answers in order to be at peace with what is, there will be periods in life when everything is up in the air with no answer to cling to. The opportunity to be honest in the present moment expands infinitely. Lies can be seen in the eyes. One cannot hide. The more honesty becomes our natural way, not something we try and do, we become more aware of subtle workings of dishonesty within ourselves and others. Our discernment becomes refined. We may not always know how the next best way to move is, but we always have the opportunity to be straight with where we are within our being.

 

What is arising now? What situation is begging to be looked at more closely? Attention is everything. Justice asks for looking at all angles and perspectives a situation. Looking from your own perspective and how you truly feel, looking at others perspective and what they are experiencing. The point is not to see in black and white, in the way of you are right and another is wrong. The word of the wise cats on the card is to encompass all light and dark. This is seeing the entirety of the picture and not only one narrow minded point of view. Your ways of being right will be limiting to you now, this card serves the highest good of all, not only your bubble of a universe. Think vast. The call to action is to call in compassion, gentleness, and your own honesty. You cannot dictate how others involved will be and you cannot always know if those involved will be honest. But you can be real with yourself and all involved for your own peace of mind. The sword pointing downward between the cats is symbolic of action, however, because it is not upright it does not necessarily mean victory in the way that you will get what you want from the situation. However, you will get what is appropriate for growth and expansion. Sometimes hard lessons are learned here, but humbling and undeniably perfect as one sees why all must transpire in the way things unfold.

 

The Diamond in the center of the card can be a symbol of many ideas and concepts like anything else. What is felt strongly is the representation of a yoni shaped like a diamond. The birth of being comes from this diamond. As one is alive in this wild, magical circus, can we see how the life which springs from your being is creating worlds upon worlds? The inquiry is to investigate the worlds which one is creating? Pay attention to what is arising within your experience. What are you creating? What does your inner being feel like? Are you hiding or making up stories, actively believing for them to be true? Are you believing deluded stories that are distant from the essence of your being? Justice invites one to return home. Whatever situation, whatever experience, whatever it is that is asking you to take a look more deeply. Time is to open, acknowledge, see, inquire, investigate, with honesty. This will allow you to look at what is instead trying to play with escapism in any way shape or form. Notice if heaviness within your being is present, this heaviness is most often than not associated with a false story being told within your inner experience. Of course the reminder for Justice is that life is not always black and white, but do yourself the service of being present where you are. Be honest. There is a relaxation in your present moment experience that comes with the realness of your transparency. You will feel it immediately as soon as this “confession” takes place. Remember, you are a multidimensional being that is also laughing hysterically on another plane as you stumble and fall. Don’t forget to throw your hands up and fucking laugh! Remember the only thing you can admit is the truth….and its going to emerge anyways, so now is the time.

Justice will arise.  Whatever is unfolding, however challenging it may be, it is stretching you. Allow yourself to be a little uncomfortable because you are growing.

Ten of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Ten of Wands The Wild Unknown Tarot

Ten of Wands is almost completely dark with hardly any light shining through. Where once there was momentum moving forward with a goal, this is a time where one has really slowed down and starting to feel the burden of their own creation. This is right about the time where pushing through is most necessary. At one time of immaturity it would have been easy to give up at this point. One is now feeling the slowing down in movement and feeling the burden, but not convinced enough to stop the process of creation. There has been a lot of high energy, enthusiasm, and vibrant activity that has is now burning out and losing zest. This can be looked at as a death of the original idea or plan, or it can be seen as a positive relief. When one begins to work from a neutral space rather than one of high energy that easily dissipates, there is more room created for a long term vision to come into being. Rather than worried about lack of enthusiasm that was once present, one can be more excited that this initial phase of short winded enthusiasm has fizzled out so one can work and move on their dream from a sustainable space within instead of a space that is high energy one moment and low the other. The invitation from the Ten of Wands is to not give in to weariness now. Know that you can continue toward your vision from an equanimous space that is connected to your source energy rather than fleeting feelings. Although the high vibe excited energy can feel as though it can take on anything, it is not the short bursts of energy that sustain a vision or goal over an extended period of time. It is the initial spark of an idea that contains this excitement, but what will actually sustain this over a long period of time while one is working each day toward the vision?

 

Whether one realizes it or not you are actually in the completion stages of your goal. There has been a lot of preparing, building, energy, which has already been invested into the direction you are moving. Now is not the time to say Fuck It and throw everything away. Know that you are well underway to completing what you have started, but one must take a rest and continue one step at a time. Whatever is the most important aspect of your vision, put the sweet nectar of your energy there first. Everything else that you must do or think you must do is not as important as the main aspect of your vision you wish to see take form. If all the less potent areas of your goal are prioritized first, this will slow down your momentum and take up too much of your time. The invitation is to set some wands down and focus on one or two that you will put your attention to each day. What is of lesser importance can be completed in their own natural time. It is easy to burn out when we try to do it all in one day. The invitation is to move at your own pace, but put your sweet attention on what is of highest importance first. As you reclaim your energy out of all the little tasks that are not of high importance, you will bring to life your original energy of the brilliant vision to begin with.

 

Ten of Wands is a time where the feeling of quitting may be present, but a lot of this energy is due to putting small tasks ahead of the main goal and also, not playing enough. When we allow spontaneity to move us and we relax instead of putting so much pressure on ourselves we find a flow that is easy to live everyday instead of anything close to mundane and heavy. Although you have so much you want to accomplish, it is as equally important to live while working on visions and goals and not get pulled into tunnel vision. Unless of course the tunnel vision feels in the flow and is not draining on the spirit:) The more we are truly living from a space of love and spontaneity we move in a way that is light and free instead of tight and rigid. When one is tight and rigid, how will the vision or goal turn out with that energy? What energy is being invested into this space of creation? Life and play don’t have to be separate from visions and goals. There is infinite inspiration all around when we are open to life and this can be equally as valuable to a project as working on the project itself. Inspiration comes from spaces that are unexpected and we may find that as we allow ourselves to play and move we ignite a creative fire that adds more to our visions and dreams than we can possibly imagine. Living an inspired life and being inspired by anything and everything will add tremendous value to what wishes to manifest through your unique being. Do not be so quick to undervalue the power of play.

The Star, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Star The Wild Unknown Tarot

As we look at the night sky we are filled with wonder and the mysteries of life. This feeling naturally awakens our cells to the infinite possibilities of what we can discover and create in this life. If life birthed us and the stars into being, what beauty can be created by our hands? The night sky inspires excitement about our unlimited potential of creation. That which inspires your being to move is the same spark that ignited all of life, the stars, and galaxies to be as they are. The Star is a card that one is connected to and honoring their true self and hearts path. This is the one that is moving in a natural way that is in accordance with the divine. What is mundane, what is the road most travelled, is not attractive to the one who pulls The Star. The wisdom of the stars and the galaxies are ancient. This is the same wisdom which is moving through all beings in this very moment. At this time you will find that those who oppose your way are much less impactful for you now. In fact any opposing forces remind you that you are living in honor with your souls path, the immensity of blessings are with you.

 

There have been many challenges before this card to be pulled in the present position. All of the challenges one has faced until now have created a strength that is unmatched by what one can learn in a book or through another beings story. Your experience is first hand lived by you and these lessons have made you strong. There is immense gratitude and understanding for all that has been experienced and not experienced on your journey. At this time all challenges, blessings, and every experience you have lived thus far will be moving through your spirit as work that will come into the world. Ideas, plans, projects, work, or whatever the focus is at this time will be powerful. You are open to share your essence with those that come into your field while you continue your creative journey. In the past as you were going through challenges more doubt were present about which way to go, what to do, how to be. Now things are flowing in an easy way and there is a natural progression unfolding. The movement of your life is beyond trust, hope, and faith. The Star moves in complete alignment with all of life.

 

There are significant changes happening which are opening you in a way that seemed possible before, but out of reach. Now these changes within your mind, body, spirit, inner/outer experience are fully embodying what you have always intuitively deeply known, but still felt separate from. This is why all can flow with great ease at this time. All doors are wide open now and your intuition can feel where to go and not to go much more swiftly and with less discord than before. The Star comes after stages of limbo, uncertainty, and challenges with a light that breaks through all ancient heaviness that was once held onto.

You are dancing in your brilliance.

Six of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Six of Pentacles The Wild Unknown Tarot

Six of Pentacles depicts a pure white branch bearing six fire pentacles. After the darkness of five of pentacles, one is now experiencing an opening within that is flourishing on material aspects of life. This is expanding from a rootedness coming out of an inner nourishing. This is a time where one is fruitful and prosperous financially, or perhaps inner resources are being discovered which can be exchanged for financial independence. Whether the abundance is present now or you are discovering and working toward financial freedom, you currently have all resources you need. This is a time where one does not need reassurance on the path you are on and all the dots are connecting.

 

Six of Pentacles is a great reflection that we all have unique gifts that can be exchanged for financial independence. When we see we already have all we need we find the love of joyous work instead of resorting to the mundane work which leaks our spirit. This is a time when ones gifts are being used fully or being discovered to allow financial exchange to happen. For the one who is unsure, What resources do you have that others do not?  What ways would you enjoy giving that allows you to receive financial exchange? The more we discover ourselves and what we are attracted to, we can genuinely trust our unique ways to give and receive. Frustration seeps in when we do not trust our own process and start doubting our natural progression. As sweet energy is put into your work you will be met in return with the same energy. If you are halfway in then you will only see some of the results. Six of Pentacles says do not be afraid to jump fully into what you are doing. Ask for in exchange the value that you put into your work, don’t sell yourself short. Your time, skills, resources, and talents are of high value and they will continue to bloom as much as you put your entire being into them.

 

Six of Pentacles is about giving and receiving. If you find you are giving so much in your work and not receiving what you need to be abundant and prosperous the invitation is to sincerely ask, has this work just become humdrum autopilot work? Or, is my being still present here? Sometimes we are not receiving what we are putting in because perhaps our line of work or creation is shifting or changing into something entirely new. When we pay attention we can see if we are feeling drained or uninspired. This can happen because what we are doing is not aligned with our true internal calling. When everything seems to be going shit it often means there is some hidden treasure waiting to be recognized. We are always allowed to change direction to do something that satisfies us deeply and this can happen at anytime in our life or many times! We are not only here to play when we retire! Who said we will even make it to retirement?! The invitation is to allow the true blooming of what inspires to become the work. Many are shifting out of the 9-5 paradigm to discover what truly sets their heart on fire. Not to say it is easy, but it doesn’t need to be. There will always be struggles that stretch us in ways we can simply say thank you for. What is more important than what is easy is what is actually satisfying in a real way? Is where you spend the majority of time each day worth the energy invested? Failing a million times at something that makes you excited to be alive is much more satisfying than playing it safe with a steady job while dying on the inside…..unless that seems cool with you…

 

Six of Pentacles recognizes your internal blooming whether you do or not. You absolutely have all the resources you need. It is only the fear we allow to creep in which delays our blooming. But this delay is also crucial because life is testing your own trust. Each day you work on what you love you will grow in trust. You will also get pissed off and want to give up, this is part of the dance. There is no need to let one moment, one day, or even a few months of darkness or doubt stop you from aligning with what work is true to you. As your relationship with yourself is no longer separated within, you will continue what you do in an effortless way.  The blooming within you has been blooming since before birth and it will continue to bloom fully. It will also wither away and die off, decompose, and begin itself anew. This is part of our dying and rebirthing that is our natural expansion. The natural essence of our being must go through the wide spectrum of light, dark, and grey to encompass the totality. It is already happening…best if we get out the way and let it do what it does.

Two of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Two of Wands The Wild Unknown Tarot

Two of Wands is the action that springs forth from the initial idea and energy of the Ace of Wands. In Two of Wands one will be moving with a steady momentum towards visions and goals that are in alignment with the heart. One is no longer daydreaming about this vision, but actively watering the seeds each day. There is an energy moving now that intuitively knows the path that is being walked is the one that has been waiting to spring forth from the being. This is why there is sustainable energy here and not energy that will dissipate after a short time. Two of Wands is a deep exploration bringing one to a depth that will expand through the vision one has embarked on. This exploration on your creative vision will stretch the being outside of oneself in the way that this creation is not just satisfying his own personal wishes but also inspiring others to embark on what also sets their heart on fire. This is the juicy effect of love 😉 Walking fully in the naturalness of being is blooming in the way of a flower. There is no other way but for the flower to bloom, just as the person must play out what is in the heart. This is the will of the divine.

 

Something within at this time is feeling expansion. This could come to be through school, traveling, creative endeavors, reading, or anything in you that is ready to open or stretch in a way that is ready to blast open. One is finding that life is showing when its time to expand and when its time to nurture seeds. No methods are needed for ones expansion. Like a flower this is naturally occurring. Now is the time that Two of Wands says yes go on that trip you feel called to take! Research that topic that you have been wanting to get into! Go explore the creation that has been poking at you to uncover! All of these clues are coming now for you to expand and they are intertwined with what you are creating. This will push you to an even deeper compatibility and connection with the vision and goal you are currently working on. As one works in present moment love, the word “work” falls away and all becomes a love making with life.

 

There is a vibrant energy in the Two of Wands that is inviting one to drop any and all things holding one back from doing what is in true alignment. It is an invitation saying your goal or vision that you are now embarking on is the opening to a much larger portal. One is only breaking open to the majesty of creation. The Two of Wands says you are outgrowing yourself quickly and life is now rearranging itself for expansion. There is nothing one must actively do to expand. There is no practice that can make this happen. Life is naturally moving and expanding within all beings, like the plants are growing we do the same. One doesn’t need to force any type of growth because we learn and grow at the precise times we are meant to. All is unfolding in a divine perfection, it is only the mind that believes otherwise and attempts to interpret, therefore mistakes the divinity of what is for what one thinks should be. All that is allowing us to be here in this very moment is because all has happened exactly as it has for life to give birth to who we are. Two of Wands has magic in store for one to expand through creative work and asking you to follow this flow, allow it to be, and allow the sincere work to come through.

Daughter of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Daughter of Pentacles The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Daughter of Pentacles depicts a delicate, but strong fawn about to embark on a new and unknown journey. She has a great deal to learn and explore, but it does not hold her back from being open to life. She may be young and a bit naive, but her childlike exploration and wonder of the world will carry her through all she experiences. She looks before her with awe and excitement, not fearing what she may encounter on her journey. She welcomes all that comes for her learning and expansion.

 

The Daughter of Pentacles asks what project or venture are we working on and how can we take the excited energy that is present to the completion of the project? The fire can wither away and turn into a distant dream if we don’t nurture this creative drive. This card is the energy around a dream that wishes to come into the physical realm. This card represents the beginning stages of the vision which contains a lot of energy, but will one allow this energy be sustained throughout the entire project or venture? If it is not nurtured, there will not be completion of the goal but an initial fire and then a decline of consistent energy. The invitation here is to take that present moment excitement and allow yourself to take practical steps everyday to work toward the vision. If something truly wishes to move through you in an authentic way, naturally you will invest time and energy daily to develop this project. Allow any fear of future outcome to fall away and be fully engaged with each action you put into your project. Allow yourself to disappear in the process, it will happen anyway if it is something that must move through you. This will create a vision of present moment pure love, no matter what the outcome of the project is. If one is only thinking of the outcome the process will be riddled with agitation and fear.

 

When we commit our loving energy to a creative project, work venture, or hobby, we are emitting a frequency of love and gratitude because we are investing our precious time into our gifts, talents, and authentic interests. When we allow ourselves to move from this space we will quickly find, (if one hasn’t experienced this already) all forces move to assist your genuine movements that are most natural to your being. There is an undeniable shift in the way you move and the way life moves with you. When we work or invest energy in places or with people that are not aligning with our energy we begin to deplete ourselves. The magic begins to unfold when we honor our heart and what naturally wishes to manifest within our being. This can happen very quickly if there is a true desire within to move in a direction that is in full alignment with our inner being. Our life can change dramatically like magic when we leave that which doesn’t serve our being. The Daughter of Pentacles asks, are we being honest and transparent with where we are investing our energy? Or are we moving out of fear and the fulfillment of false security? Daughter of Pentacles shows us its okay to be unsure and to still move in the direction of what sets our heart of fire. If we knew where we were going….this wouldn’t be that much fun would it? Lets embrace the mystery we are already living. Time to embrace not knowing instead of stressing out oneself to know.

 

This can be a time where an idea or vision comes and one has some of the skills and resources to begin where he/she can, but unsure about what can come with the venture. Daughter of Pentacles asks us to be in our boldness and to not try and have “all your ducks in a row” in order to begin. Just a reminder….no one has their fucking ducks in a row. Our visions and dreams come to us specifically for a reason, because we can carry them through into being. We don’t need to worry if we can “do it all” but trust that when challenges come we will learn new skills in appropriate timing or meet someone that can guide us further when we are stuck. The invitation is to continue forward with what excites, and to not settle for second best. We cannot wait to know everything in order to begin, we learn as we go and can relax in the process.

Judgement, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Judgement The Wild Unknown Tarot

The white bird spans his wings of light above the darkness. Below him, bats are coming towards his light from the depths of the black abyss. The bird has no judgement for the darkness, he only invites the darkness to come towards the light. This bird embraces all who come from the darkness and the light.

 

Somethings magical occurs when we surrender judgement of ourselves. As we surrender our harsh judgements towards ourselves, judgements towards others also vanish. This leaves a great space within the being. There is a lightness that cannot be matched by anything else. It is the lightness of spirit that is felt because there is no longer empowerment of judgement towards self or “others.” When the judgement card is pulled the invitation is to ask, “Am I being to hard on myself? Am I being too hard on others? How does this make me feel?” There are times when we think being critical or judgmental towards others is helpful, but sometimes this assists in disempowering our brothers and sisters.  The question that is invited is what is more true? Is it the darkness that you may see in someone else or the divinity of them that is the essence of their being? When we focus on the divinity in ourselves instead of criticizing the darkness, it is the divinity that is given space to expand instead of empowering all the problems. The more we tell someone that we believe in them, how much we love and trust them the more we see them bloom, expand, and embrace their beauty. Can we do this for ourselves and others? To allow divinity to dance instead of watching it wither away? Can we notice in ourselves when judgement arises? Are we putting ourselves and other beings down instead of lifting up? We can cultivate healthy judgement by focusing on the good in ourselves and in others. Not to ignore the dark aspects of creation, but to recognize the beauty that is here and see the darkness present is also assisting our expansion. To focus on getting “rid” of the darkness will empower it to rise. As we empower strengths in ourselves and others we will see how quickly a true confidence emerges. A confidence that is not “Oh look at me” but more like “Yes, I can be myself fully.”

 

As we investigate more deeply to see where our judgement comes from what can we find? This judgement is coming with a rejection of what is present. Trying to change or manipulate a situation instead of seeing the inherent lessons in all that is arising. If we see every problem that arises as an opportunity for growth and greater understanding, harsh judgement of self and others will drop away. Opportunity will be seen clear as day where once there was conflict and frustration. Before we go pointing the finger at someone, it’s a good idea to look in the mirror. Find out if what is being judged is actually about the other, or, is it about you? Many times we will find the conflict is coming from our own perspective and the irritation that is felt is a natural alarm system to check in with our way of seeing. We can ask is what I’m seeing truly a defect of another or are they simply mirroring a way that I am viewing myself? Everyone is free to be as they are. As we condemn others in their freedom, we condemn ourself.

 

The Judgement card can come when you are seeing clearly how your actions, words, thoughts, feelings, vibration, and all that you are is constantly determining and shifting the quality of your life. Perhaps at this time a veil has been lifted that you had no idea was present. You are seeing all of life in a very new and fresh way. This could be a time where self judgement has dissolved in a major way and you are seeing the inherent beauty in yourself and all of life. This can cause for your reality to change in very dramatic ways….and very quickly. The veil that has been lifted has put you in complete alignment with your purpose, your passions, your visions, and all is flowing in the most natural way. This happens as perception aligns with your heart and you fall into the arms of the unknown. All of this is happening through Grace. This is not something that one can force to happen. Life will unveil the mysteries as we trust and allow ourselves to be available. This is the majesty and the beauty of the divine unfolding. As we trust, life strips us naked of our false illusions and judgement. We begin to see with the eyes of pure spirit.

Son of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Son of Cups The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Son of Cups is more mature than the Daughter of Cups with a depth of darkness and light that add to his character. The Daughter of Cups was in peaceful, illuminated water, while the Son of Cups has a movement drawing in an upward direction. This is showing a new chapter in life in a different direction that is stemming from what has been learned through his current experience. It is a new direction that comes from what he has bared witness to and experienced of light and dark. This new movement comes from wisdom that has unraveled over the course of his experience. The Son of Cups does not have the maturity as the Father, but has much more experience than the Daughter does in her sweet innocence. Different phases of life stretch our capacity in numerous ways and now is that of a growing phase for the Son. There is tremendous growth and depth, but not at the peak of maturity. The Son of Cups is at an exciting time shedding immense amounts of what no longer serves and highly sensitive to what does. So much so, that circumstances are rapidly changing to match the depth of what he is internally discovering.

 

Cups are linked with love and relationships, connections, and emotional well being. The cup in front of the swan is a combination of dark and light emotions at play. There is tremendous amount of heavy and light emotional energy bursting in this cup, but the Son at this time has the maturity to keep moving forward with grace. The Son of Cups is using this bubbling energy for creative thinking and momentum forward. Although there is some darkness in the cup this should not scare the one who pulls the card. We all have a depth of dark and light within and they can be harnessed and used in many creative and positive ways. How we perceive the darkness and light will determine if they will be used constructively or not. There is a good and healthy balance here that joins heart and mind energy. The Son of Cups is finding a better balance of intuition and logic combination. However, if he was pulled upside down it can mean the emotions are not being cared for properly and there can be movements that are hasty and overly emotional.

 

The Son of Cups emotions are very much concentrated within him. They are not expanding over the entire card. This energy is very much in the center of focus right now as he is moving from the inside out. He is introspective and allowing himself to feel the depth of the wide spectrum of his emotions. He is looking at triggers and paying attention to what feels healthy for him and what feels toxic. He is discovering illusions that have been deeply rooted and watching them fall away. There are many changes happening on very subtle levels. Ones he cannot entirely describe, but feeling completely and allowing grace to care for the changes. The invitation is to allow the exploration of the inner workings, but to not become self absorbed and narrow. Allow yourself to explore naturally, but do not obsess. This card can be equally as positive as it is negative. A good way to observe and see is how the inner/outer life is balancing. Is one paying attention to only inner and not practical life? This is something to be watchful of with this card. An invitation to learn from those who are the completely different from you is helpful, as they can have strengths you do not have. The invitation is to not neglect any aspect of self. As we connect more deeply with our naturalness all of these things begin to make sense and fall into their own balance, and that looks entirely different for everyone.

 

This is a time to investigate your how you genuinely feel. How are you taking care of yourself? Sometimes we take immense care in one way and completely fall off the wagon in another. The Son of Cups calls for balance in all aspects of life. Inviting sensitivity and compassion toward yourself and others now will make a world of difference. Whatever is being discovered, as dark or light as it may be can be seen in positive regard when we become honest and transparent with ourselves and take right action. With right action we will be guided in a direction that is in alignment with the highest good for ourselves and all of life. With right action use intuition, but don’t ignore logic and reason when they are useful. The capacity for all is there, use the balance of both as you move forward into unknown spaces.

The Emperor, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Emperor The Wild Unknown Tarot

//The Emperor depicts an evergreen tree. Tall, healthy, strong, and deeply rooted in the ground. Standing tall against a pure white background, the sun emitting a concentrated energy of light. Wisdom and experience go hand in hand with The Emperor. He is a strong and steady force that has gained tremendous wisdom through his journey. The Emperor is ruled by Aries fire. Representing strong will, determined action through focus, independent, and intelligent nature. The Emperor represents masculine energy, but does not necessarily come from a male. It is the masculine force that is present within oneself or another close in your journey. The Emperor has a strong passion for life and has energy for pleasant and beautiful experiences as well as the challenges life brings for the expansion and greater understanding. He sees challenges as continuous opportunities for growth and learning//

 

//The Emperor extends his wisdom to those who come to him. He shares wisdom from his own life experience, not what he has heard or read about, but from what he has discovered first hand. He shares wisdom so that others may be able to offer up themselves as he has. The Emperor knows each human being has a gift that shall not die within them, but be passed down to future generations. He brings a sense of grounding to those who meet him. Although they can be going through hard times he reminds them of their own power and guides them to find the answers within themselves. A true emperor does not have those who come to him rely on him, but guides them back to their own source of wisdom which is the same from which his wisdom and guidance arise//

 

//The Emperor has a way of seeing what his heart desires to bring forth in the physical realm and invests energy, passion, and full focus of attention in that direction until the idea that was once a seed fully manifests in his reality. He is not a dreamer, he is fully action oriented. He acknowledges how his dreaming has had its part to play in his experience and honors and respects that time. However, now he is a master at putting what he wants to see into action. Therefore, he is an inspiration for others to turn their dreams into fully coming to life. With each action, no matter how small or large The Emperor knows that a dream will come into full form when the focus is present. He does not make excuses. He simply uses all his resources and tools in order to embody the life he knows can be experienced. The Emperor does not let those who come to him think that what their heart wishes to express cannot be materialized. He knows each one has all the tools they need to express the divinity that wishes to emerge. Those who come his way leave inspired and know that they can do what they have wished. The Emperor is living proof of this. He is full force action//

 

//The Invitation here is to embody the characteristics of The Emperor. Is one walking the path that is felt in the heart, or is avoidance still present? As we make space for what is important in our heart this aspect of our life continues to grow and develop. Something we once thought was impossible we now see is very possible. As we focus our attention on an area of our life, that area of our life will grow the amount of time we invest. The invitation is to start somewhere, if we haven’t already. What would genuinely like to be seen in our life that has been neglected or ignored? You know…those secret dreams waiting to emerge? There is an opportunity now to drink up the energy of The Emperor and know that what wishes to be seen in our life can be experienced. As we begin to see the fruits of our actions we begin to start abandoning that which doesn’t serve our highest good and allow ourselves to keep moving and expanding in the direction that is most natural to us. Are we expanding deep roots into that which we deeply love, or are we still doubting the truth of how we wish to express? The Emperor embodies an internal structure and stability that relies on no outside source other than self. He reminds us to always start from within as we move in this life. We have the internal stability with our connection as divine source that allows us to move in a way that is true and honest with oneself and all of life.

Two of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot The Two of Swords meaning and interpretation

Two crossed swords below the moon eclipsing the sun. The light is still showing around the ring of the moon, but it is quite a small expansion of light. There is a decision to be made and there has been a long delay in the decision making. Two of Swords indicates you may not have all the information you need to make the right decision. Instead of avoiding, this is a time to make a decision with careful thought and honest intention. Pay attention to what is really in front of you. This approach at this time must be seeing the situation as it is rather than seeing what you would like to see. One must lay all the cards out on the table in order to make the best decision. Any avoidance of the decision to be made will only make it more difficult to choose as deeper confusion will make its way inside.

 

If one can take an objective standpoint from the situation and address a broad view of the current experience there may appear a better choice for what the next best way to navigate is. However, there may be pieces of information that the card holder is entirely unaware of. This means there is more of the story to unfold before the right decision can even be clear. Whether one has all the pieces of information they need or not, it is important to pay attention to the current experience and to make a decision the best way possible. Although the moon is eclipsing the suns light, there is still light shining through which is indicating one can still make a decision to their capacity of understanding with the information present. With an open heart and pure intentions and motives there will not be a wrong step. If there are more pieces to the puzzle to be revealed, in time they will be and again you have the option to choose and navigate according to the new insight revealed. We are always learning and growing, being hard on oneself will only bring doubt into the being which delays the process of choice.

 

Sometimes there are times when we have come to a standstill in what to do and simply are not sure how to move. Instead of delaying and avoiding the next step, reach out to someone who can be trusted and objectively point out that which may not be obvious to you. Sometimes where there can be a stagnancy present, it is wise to seek counsel. As we are directly in the experience it can be very difficult to see an element that another can see clear as day. Family members are not the best at this time to ask for guidance unless they can truly be objective. Perhaps a loyal and trustworthy friend, a counselor, or a wise person that can look at the whole picture and tell you what they see. Maybe you don’t take what they say and run with it, but perhaps it can open a whole new world you haven’t seen. Within a very short time complete clarity can be recognized after a quick conversation with another. They see something clearly because they are not personally in the situation. Whether inspired by someone else or not, ultimately the decision must come from your heart.

 

Two of Swords invites us to not put any decisions off and not to avoid what must be looked at. Whatever aspect of ones life this may be, it needs your present moment attention. There will be a great burden released when we address what must be looked at more deeply.

Ace of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot The Magician meaning and interpretation

Nothing can stand in the way of the Ace of SwordsThe one who chooses this card is at full power and energy right now. The question is will the energy be used to benefit the greater good? It is up to the one who holds the sword to use it in the highest way. The work that must be done is beyond the individuals life and calls upon this being to step up for the whole of humanity. The white sword depicted is pure and true, reflecting a higher choice of how to use ones energy. There is a rainbow infinity sign wrapped around the sword symbolizing what must come through this being ripples out infinitely to all of existence. This is stepping into our roles that not only satisfies our personal life, but the divine work we came here to do. Our true work that we must wake up to within this lifetime. The lightning bolt that strikes on either side of the sword signifies a clarity that comes quickly and powerfully. One is seeing what their work is with a deeper understanding than before. But just as quick as lightning and clarity come they can also disappear. Whatever insight comes at this time can be written down to help absorb its power. This is not a time to to forget what one has realized, but to allow what has been seen to be absorbed to its fullness before it is forgotten.

 

As clarity comes, action is birthed. When one sees the direction that is right and true the limbo stages are over. There is no more waiting, there is no more uncertainty within the being. There is recognition that Yes, moving forward with this clarity is absolutely in alignment. This new understanding is so clear that the one who bears the sword is willing to overcome the double edge that is present. There are people who will be against and for the journey this one is living.  There is an undeniable new understanding which has been brought forth about the next step one must take and it is crystal clear. The strength is also there to bear disagreement and opinions from others and to stand firm in the way you tread fully. When deeper understanding comes for a new direction, a goal, project, or vision, there is an energy that supports it fully because one is inline with all of existence. This will be undeniably obvious as one continues on the path, as this path will be fully supported. The movements one makes will not be because of material gains or status. The movements made will be pure spirit moving through the being to express the work of the divine. This support is much more powerful than those who put you down. Those who put you down will only strengthen what you know to be true in your heart and you will continue with Grace as there are a deeper depths to your movements besides what others may think or not think.

 

Ace of Swords asks to step fully into gifts, talents, abilities, and gather all tools and resources to continue on the journey the heart is uniquely designed to experience. There is no one foot in water and one on land. Full merging into the divine waters. This is a direct and immediate power that has no time to wait. Life is happening now and there is no more time to delay what must be birthed from ones being. We are asked to embrace our divinity and humanness to the fullest. To see fully what has wished to move through us is now either happening or going into hiding. It is up to the one who bears the sword with all or nothing energy. To run with the wolves or fall back into hiding. We have the free will to go either way. But what stops us from rising above the mundane? We are given our gifts for a reason. We must not let them die within us.

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.

Strength Card, The Wild Unknown Tarot

A Lioness, with a rose gently held in her mouth. On her forehead rests an infinity symbol. A peaceful energy exudes from her presence. This card reminds us to draw on our inner strength that can navigate us through the darkest waters and turn them clear. Our true strength is tested when we are faced with challenges inside ourselves, and with others present in our life. The Strength Card is the embodiment of an unwavering power that can move through all obstacles with patience and calmness that soothes the most ferocious waters. This card represents the human spirit overcoming all obstacles when drawing on this strength we all have within us. As one pulls this card there is a deep maturity that has occurred withins ones life in order for this subtle, yet tremendous power to be present. This strength is not always visible to others and doesn’t need to be. It is a quiet current with immense power underlying its purpose & movement.

 

The Strength Card is a reminder to allow compassion to move one through the obstacles that arise. This is not a time to be forceful with situations unfolding. There are times where we must take deep breaths and take our time before opening the doors of a situation that is occurring in our life. It is wise to dive in when one is drawing from their inner strength with a compassionate heart to discuss a sensitive matter. When we move from this space it is possible to move mountains. Whereas if we move from an overly emotional state we can actually cause more pain to a situation instead of meeting it in a constructive, open, loving, & compassionate way. True strength can be holding space for ourselves or a loved one when going through deep hardship. Strength can be speaking the words that are in our heart as mindfully as we can without lashing out at another. Strength is navigating in ways that are least destructive and most sincere and honest. We can create a safe and loving environment for ourself and for others where trust can grow, allowing that which needs attention to come to the surface.

 

The Lioness has been learning through experience on her journey that her strength is deeply present when she doesn’t feed the negative emotions that arise. She has learned that she has a choice of what she can feed in her life, not only mentally, but on every aspect of her being. Physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, she sees how connected each aspect of her being is and how true strength is discovered when she allows all of these aspects of herself to be fed daily. The Lioness is not waiting for anything to happen to her. She sees she has all the tools she needs within and she moves from this space of fullness. This allows her to be free from victimhood. Her strength is in herself and nothing outside of her.

 

The Strength Card can come during a time where one can be feeling in complete harmony with all of life and persevering through obstacles with great ease. The strength card can also come at a time when you are in the midst of a conflict with yourself or perhaps someone around you is in conflict. This is a time to draw on your internal resources that have deepened in maturity over time. It is a time to take responsibility for yourself and what you are seeing occur in your life. If it is another person going through something this calls for an unwavering patience that creates trust and support between you both. Ultimately, we can only show up for ourselves and others within the the capacity and depth we have reached within ourselves. Life will always be pushing this threshold to expand us into further understanding and depth. We can go so far to reach out to another, but they must be open and willing to meet us for true change to occur. However, we are all unique and learn different lessons at different times. Nothing can be forced. We cannot force each other to learn or see. These things can only take place by individual experience and an openness to discover something more deeply. The Strength card requires a delicate balance within oneself and ones environment to move in a way that empowers life to bloom and uses strength wisely out of compassion and sincere love.

Eight of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

..::.. The Weaving of the Web ..::..

One meaning of spider is linked with Maya, coming from the Sanskrit root Ma – no form or limit.The web of the spider can be seen when we focus on detail, we become the spider and the web that is being woven. The term Maya refers to not all things being as they appear to be. As we tune more deeply into the web, we can bring our attention more closely to the silvery threads of how we are building and how we choose to continue weaving. The moment to moment details of our lives encompasses infinite possibilities of how we choose to create. The Eight of Pentacles shows itself at times of deep emersion in the details of ones work. A fullness that embodies complete attention and devotion to ones craft. Eight of Pentacles can also swing the other way, infinite possibilities means anything we focus on will grow. This calls to pay attention to what one is tuning into. Let us embody our magick, beauty, and what is true in our heart.

 

The focus at this time of one pointed attention. This card is a purely focused and joyful work that is an embodiment of the individual souls calling being fine tuned and birthed into creation. There is high forward moving energy of love and creativity, ethereal and strategic movements flowing in harmonious tandem. Eight of Pentacles represents no end to learning, through and beyond contrast in the infinite spectrum of offerings, refining the weaving. This gives birth to organic creations sprouting from the raw wilderness of heart-space. Eight of Pentacles emphasizes joy, focus, and dedication each day to ones work/play/creation/vision. The gateways of the infinite appear as the dance continues through the lines of light frequency tuning.

 

As we inquire with our weaving we become more precise tuning our frequency and making shifts accordingly. We can see how life can shift rapidly and flows with more ease as we embody our fullness. Life is responding to our energetic weaving revealing clues in each moment. As we allow ourself to be fully devoted to our dreams and bring them into consistent action each day we are naturally surrendering to unknown realms of magick and wonder. As we journey we build the web that is innately ours to create.

The Hermit, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot The Hermit meaning and interpretation

 

The tortoise, quietly sitting with a lantern upon his back. There is nothing in the world for The Hermit, he discovers this and dwells within the place that cannot be named, spoken of, yet gives life to himself and all that is seen and felt within the world. He dwells here, for this is where the essence of all life springs. The Hermit is in a period of incubation. Simply merging with his own source and dwelling in this sweet honey nectar, he cannot describe. He gives value to this time alone and deeply knows he must remain silent and still as life is drowning him into the ocean of his being.

 

The Hermit solitude is not purposeless and those who may try and convince him otherwise must not be engaged with at this time. There is a purpose for this necessary solitude with oneself and honoring and allowing it to be. This period allows our own wisdom to spring forward allowing ourselves to be our own guide, not relying on a guide from the world. The Hermit is listening, feeling, and discovering the depth of his own being. The depth he is discovering feels ancient. As he rests in the vastness of his own being he sees how he has allowed or restricted life. He appreciates the unending beauty that springs forth from his being and the infinite expansion he is intricately woven into. This time in The Hermits life is not necessarily linked with much doing and action as it is a very introspective and contemplative time. However, when action does spring forth whether now or in time it will be right action in accordance to the Hermits unique path. There will be a undeniably natural movement when the time comes for action.

 

Sitting still within ones own being is a beautiful way to discover our divine essence and to move from this space with grace and ease. This essence is beyond what arises within its sphere {thoughts, feelings, ideas, beliefs} yet contains all that is found within. The Hermit has normally experienced tremendous pain before going into the phase of solitude and this pain brings him to question all things. This pain can be thought of as a gift, because this pain will make one question life and how they are moving within this world. As we sit within our vastness and discover our own miraculousness we discover that we do not need anything from the world to fill our lives with. We are discovering the abundance we thought we need from the outside can only be satisfied if we truly feel that this abundance is already here springing from inside ones own being. The Hermit does not go into solitude in hopes of gaining anything besides discovering his own freedom that is his birthright. The Hermits self discovery is an ever expanding journey that has no end. He discovers a deep contentment in himself as he is no longer deeply disturbed by leaving his body. The Hermit discovers the infinite nature of himself and all beings. This allows a deep gratitude to take over his being and allows him to be a true instrument of the divine. The veils of illusion continue falling away and the truth of the divine is all his attention gravitates towards.

The Magician, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot The Magician meaning and interpretation

The Magician is powered by the planet mercury, activating intellect, skill set, and logic. The cheetah is focused and alert, absorbing his surroundings in spirit realms and on the earth he moves upon. He bridges the gap between both worlds. Four suits of the tarot are present, depicting the elements earth, air, fire, & water that are linked to mind, heart, body and soul. The Magician embodies all the elements in the heavenly and earthly realms to bring full power to earth carried from pure spirit. The infinity symbol is depicted on the cheetahs heart showing the interconnectedness of all that is, seen and unseen.

 

The Magician is the creator, the visionary who is bringing his dreams into real time. The life experience and the creative, focused energy the Magician contains is the perfect union to fully bring the hearts desires to life. The dream stage and uncertainty is not present and there is full knowing what steps must be taken in order to bring this dream to fruition. In fact everything is happening quite automatically now as there is conviction within that carries strength, ability, excitement, and pure focus. The Magician is not a victim of circumstance or life but a creative thinker and inventor with a strong action oriented soul. The Magician knows when to use the fire within constructively so it doesn’t burn away and become ash in the wind. The Magician values this primal energy inside that cannot be wasted. He moves with great excitement to be in his natural divinity that effortlessly allows all things to fall in and out of life.

 

The Magician is thinking sharply in a way that when arriving at a problem he quickly pulls resources, skills, and intuitive creativity to find a solution. Where at one time he would have given up, he now perseveres through the temporary problems or madness. Whether one is contemplating a specific vision, or is actively working toward the vision, this card is reflecting that as long as your vision is tied into a genuine hearts desire to express, you cannot go wrong. Keep moving forward through any challenges that arise.

 

This time is important to not let the vision fade into a distant dream. Now is the time for one pointedness, focus, and attention. Put all of your energy on what you are doing and allow yourself to be fully absorbed in what you are doing. This allows the full embodiment of your heart to move into what you are doing and stops energy given to doubts and fears. The more momentum one gains in expressing the hearts desires the more creatively one taps into moving through challenges. This is a beautiful way to harness all of the abilities and resources one has to accomplish what wants to come forth.

The Moon, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot the moon

We must pay attention to the subtle messages. The moonlight only shows us part of what we see. We must uncover the rest by paying attention to the subtle details that arise within~

The Moon, represents dark aspects of self. Our subconscious plays a vital role in our life. Now is the time to sit with and reflect the subtle, inner workings of our self. If one does not acknowledge what is present, what remains will surely be bubbling to the surface now. Deep seeds of bondage that have been ignored or forgotten will surely be grabbing ones attention to wake up. Allow these disturbances to come to the surface, this will give allowance to see the darkness within and opens us to looking at the whole picture instead of fragmented parts of the whole. We cannot learn from our experiences if we have forgotten the lessons they have delivered. Time to meditate, contemplate, and give full allowance for any emotions that must be acknowledged. There is information in this time one spends in contemplation to uncover what may have been overlooked. When we take time to be with ourselves, we touch the subtle vibrations within us that have been trying to speak with us.

 

The moon reminds us that things are not always as they appear to be. The light of the moon is much more subtle than the light of the sun which allows us to see all that is before us. The moonlight only shines on part of what is before us. This is a time to be especially sensitive to messages coming through dreams, and the way one feels from moment to moment at this time. Subtleties are everything now. Each day we have the opportunity to truly feel ourselves and our environment. Let us ask the questions, is this good for me? Does this feel right? These questions allow us to live and breath in alignment with what feels attuned to our hearts vibration. When we grow and change it doesn’t mean the people around us do, sometimes we outgrow those we love. We are intuitive beings and The Moon card is one that speaks to pay attention to how we are feeling and to not overlook what is arising for us now. Time for big clearing and drastic changes.

 

This is a time that one is fully in The Wild Unknown. This path is not for everyone yet it is something we cannot actually get away from. We are all in the Wild Unknown together. When The Moon is pulled it means that you are drawing on your own life experience and intuition as your greatest teacher now because there is nothing else to rely on. You are taking others peoples opinions very lightly because you know deeply only you can move according to how spirit is moving you. Any fear or doubt at this time will do you no good, at this time you must tune into your spirit fully and let this guide you. In the past you have looked in other directions for guidance, but now you know that it is only connection with Spirit that can move you now. Listen carefully to what spirit brings through you at this time. Allow yourself to move without fear and know that Grace is fully on your side. Be with yourself and feel yourself. This is what is needed for clear navigation. Listen to the subtleties that are arising and be cautious of outer input at this time. This is an opportunity for a diving deeper into The Wild Unknown.

Mother of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot mother of wands

Mother of Wands is a card of tremendous, creative energy that is equally dancing with a firm earth energy. This is assisting an original balance on a current venture. She is strong and grounded with a clear point in focus.  The Mother of Wands depicts a snake curled around her eggs and a wand. Her wand is the power within that is creating and bringing visions to life. The eggs are the form that her visions have grown into. They are not ready to hatch yet, but the exciting time is not far away.  She is nurturing her creativity everyday and this force she is moving with is unstoppable. She is putting her unique flavor into her work and seeing as she nurtures her gifts and natural passions they are continually growing and deepening. She can see how Grace is moving in her life and this force moves her from sun up ’til sun down. Her energy is bright and firey, all forces are with her to continue the work she knows must come through. The energy that is emitting from her has a high momentum but also extremely grounded and solid, a unique vibration that will continue throughout her endeavor. There is a perfect balance present that is working in harmony to keep her moving consistently in the right direction.

 

The Mother of Wands has a high magnetism that stems from her healthy and active life. She does not doubt how she moves in life at this time and each next step seems to be moving like water. She inspires others to walk the way they feel inspired to as well. Mother of Wands knows that each path is different and each one is to be honored in its own unfolding. This is a time where life is moving in accordance with grace, or rather she sees grace has always been present. She sees only grace could be moving in her life to appear in all the magical ways it does. Mother of Wands immerses herself in visions that require her fullness, she cannot halfway be involved in something.  What she is currently investing her time in will be a success because it is moving from a space of true power and not egotistical pursuits. She is putting all of her energy in one direction, but never closes off to other forms of magic life will drop in her field.  Although she is focused she is not one track minded as she knows spirit moves in mysterious ways. She leaves herself open to the voices of the most high. She is highly discerning of energies as they arise in herself or others around her. When something is “off” she allows this energy to move swiftly and faces it to truly allow it to move. She is too in love with life to allow stagnant energies to show up. Her force is in her creative and steady power that have joined together, this will open many doors of opportunity as she keeps her focus on her work daily.

 

Mother of Wands is a reminder to protect what you hold dear in your heart. Are you living as the Mother of Wands? Strong in your creativity and blazing a unique and authentic trail? Or, are you stifling your creativity and allowing something lesser to be in place of what you actually feel to do? If we truly want to live a magical and abundant life we must put our energy in the direction of that which is deeply fulfilling. Sometimes it is our hobbies that we think are just hobbies, but secretly they wish to burst forth from our being and become a bigger part of our life. Are we protecting our visions? This means are we giving them time each day to bloom? We can only see what we love grow if we place our attention there. Surely you have even 15 minutes a day to place your attention on what is valuable to your heart. Do you know what focused 15 minutes a day can do? It can grow into all day of doing what you love. Life creates a vacuum where you open the door. Let the Mother of Wands ignite the fire in you that is blazing a miraculous trail for your life. There is a mighty power in you. Don’t miss it for something lesser. When we allow ourselves to move naturally in this life we see that grace is moving all the pieces, but we must allow ourselves to trust in life and watch how grace takes over. In fact grace has always been here yet we choose not to see it by siding with that which makes us fearful. grace is moving all the pieces.
