Eight of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

..Shattered white cups at the foot of a dark mountain. An unknown horizon beyond..

Eight of Cups is about a great change that is known or felt. Either something must shift, or one has already decided to take the leap. Internally, there is already the presence of a gut wrenching knowing that one must move toward a new direction in one or various aspects of life.  As we travel the inner and outer realms of life we begin to take with us what is fulfilling and rich in our lives and we also pick up what hinders the organic and vibrant flow of life. As we continue to journey we learn, grow, observe, act, and move in ways which that at times in vigor our lives and also deplete our lives. This is how we learn to navigate more wisely, as we open our eyes to what resides in the deepest core of our being we honor what wishes to be valued, cherished, and nourished. As we become acutely attuned with this core depth of our being we begin to invite that which serves our highest good and detect much more efficiently that which does not. The Eight of Cups is a drastic change that makes space and movement toward that which is in higher alignment with our individual and collective path. Becoming raw, open, vulnerable, and honest, moving forward to that which nurtures, supports, and holds our sacred path with loving arms.

For something that needs to be changed it must be acknowledged sincerely. As this takes place, internal space becomes open and light for new movement to be made internally and externally. Eight of Cups can be painfully beautiful. As we see what no longer serves we make the choice of rising into new territory celebrating a new way of living. This is a time to reassess and evaluate what we hold dear and what we do not. What is it that we cling to which is weighing us down and what moves are we making to step forward? Eight of Cups looks dark, but as this darkness is acknowledged a breath of fresh air is inhaled and new perspectives arise. This leads to more magic, possibilities, and a great abandoning of poisons and toxins within our being. As we face these dark layers from denied territories within we expose the immense beauty that is birthing itself into existence. We are pregnant with new life, and a fresh way of being. Death and Birth are tied in as one. We see this as we dive deeply and uncover what was/is dormant…we awaken the sleeping beast.

One must ask, has what been seen been fully acknowledged? Or, is there still an aversion to this honesty? An automatic response will come within. Deep in our womb, we know. When we tune in, pay attention, the answers show themselves. Whether on the verge of raising a hand and acknowledging the hidden dragon, or, on the other side where one has already acknowledged what is….Now is the time to feel into this. Eight of Cups is drastic change. It’s coming, it is here, and the next trajectory is lighter and brighter once deep recognition takes place. It can be extremely scary to walk into unknown territory and extremely exciting. The next chapter of the unknown is a step in the right direction. It is the rainbow after the storm. One is being pulled into right alignment with their soul purpose. It is a time when profound realizations of ones unique direction and path are leading the way and what must be let go in order to create new space and new life. All stagnant, dormant, and all that is unchecked will arise now. Dive deeply, be honest, and watch the magic that arises from this rawness of spirit.

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.

Judgment, 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 judgment 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 judgment of ourselves. As we surrender our harsh judgments towards ourselves, judgments 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 judgment towards self or “others.” When the judgment 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 judgment arises? Are we putting ourselves and other beings down instead of lifting up? We can cultivate healthy judgment 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 judgment comes from what can we find? This judgment 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 judgment 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 Judgment 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 judgment 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 judgment. We begin to see with the eyes of pure spirit.
