Three of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

..::..T h r e e   o f   W a n d s..::..

Clarity..::..Vision..::..Action.::..Momentum

The seeds one has been planting with love and energy are creating a strong foundation in ones life, reflecting a polished mirror of inner to outer manifestation. The loving investment of energy into work, relationships, creative visions, and interests have been cultivated and can now be expanded upon. The path is clear and there is unwavering conviction that the way is being paved in a divine harmony. The daily work must continue for the blossoms to fully bloom. The love underlying the movement is purely spirit that is taking on its own life. Three of Wands is a reflection to continue the way of the heart, to trust in fullness of what is present and what is to come. Moving in this way allows pure vision to manifest in magickal ways –  even more beautiful than the original vision. High momentum is whirling with grounded energy to stabilize this force. All loving and true energy investment is not wasted. A solid foundation is being created that is not one of solely material foundations. This foundation is built from spirit combining with earth energy – to bring into being what ignites the soul, a bridge of spirit and matter.

. . .

As each unique being honors and acts upon the natural flowing guidance, flowering within expands us to a higher dimension as the old world collapses. We are creators and naturally each have visions and dreams to bring into being, we become weak when we hide away from our natural movement. As energetic momentum in physical action has been lovingly invested in our aspirations, we give shape to new worlds that only we individually can intimately know. As we gain strength in our genuine power and intuitive connectedness we honor each step of our creations. In this way we are not swayed by underdeveloped opinions or misguided energy. Listen to what vision arises within and allow this insight from your own internal navigation to lead the way. Move from your unshakeable depth and draw resources from this infinite well. Continue to embody strength and gentleness if unkind energies arise as doubt. When we have a clear connection inside we will know the way to move, even if that means into the unknown. Always follow the deeper movement of understanding.

. . .

Energies of doubt, fear, or hesitation about what wishes to be pursued are allowed to be present. Everything is a choice, allowed or not. To choose to be inside the essence of oneself will allow these other energies to fall away. Sometimes this requires time and in other instances energies can be fluidly dropped. As your attention is open to seeing what is honest within, these heavier energies will be exposed and released within the cosmic rhythms. The energy in Three of Wands is to trust your way whether fear is present or not and proceed with confidence and daily action. As we give attention to the vibration of being, allow the potency of the inner space to obliterate the small insignificant specks of smallness which limit you. A natural checking in becomes subtly refined and unraveling our highest potentiality. Moving in honest direction of your spirit.

Many subtleties within are seen that were once overlooked. The depth that has and is being discovered is pouring out to infinite aspects of life. As inner fullness is pouring out into physical reality and creating magick where deserted lands once were.

As inner clarity of spirit is revealed, actions become natural, flowing like a river.

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.

Five of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

..::.. Five of Wands ..::..

Scattered Energy. Conflict. Confusion. These wands seem to be on entirely different trajectories. Something is being called to the forefront to be looked at more intimately. What is it in this moment that feels out of alignment internally? Energetically there are thoughts of a situation that are in question. Which ways are best to move and what is the highest way to realign with ones unique, natural vibration? Lets bring any outer situation or experience back to internal experience. We begin here, in presence, as this is where all this wildness springs from. Wands are a fire energy of movement, passion, ideas, inspiration, and the creator suit. The Five of Wands seems to be floating out of sync with one another, no color to hint at an energy burning brightly…..somethings gotta shift!

As we begin with ourselves and our internal climate first, where do we go from here? What feels off and what doesn’t feel like it is flowing with other aspects of our life? Once that is seen, feel into it. Is it something new or is it something that has been felt for some time now? Whatever is arising now, it is time to use the fire of the wands to create in the way that feels most in resonance with ones path. This may take some time, sit with what is arising, and to truly feel into ones being. This is a wise time to not distract oneself with other things as that will only delay what wishes to be seen. There could be multiple and valid stories to each of your thoughts or feelings about what is happening. On a deeper level, what rings true for you? Whatever it is you do to gain clarity, do that. There is no road map to create space within your being. Meditation and body movement are incredible tools that can help uncover this natural silent space. However, we are all very unique and tap into our ever present space in different ways. As you are with yourself and inquire, allow yourself to navigate all perspectives and feelings which arise. Explore openly and honestly. At times the different perspectives can also cause even more confusion, especially if there are multiple solid perspectives that all feel as though they can be true. Sitting in the depths of our own being in silence can bring up the most clear answer, we know it when it shows itself. Patience and kindness towards oneself will allow any anxiety and fear to dissipate while looking sincerely within. Our connection to our intuition and our honesty with ourself is important for us to navigate. Allow the power of presence to be felt. Words do not always come with realizations of what to do, but an answer will be felt when given space to arise.

Five of Wands is ready to be redirected in action again. Wands are meant to create magic. When wands energy is not balanced and used to full capacity it can feel flighty and directionless. Wands are designed to create, inspire, and create expansive energy within our lives. They are bursting with creation when aligned with the heart. We are constantly carving out our path, each day within our being and the actions that spring forth from our internal self. It ain’t such a bad idea to reflect and contemplate the way in which things are moving. Is one deeply loving the direction of the course, or is it time to make adjustments? We have this incredible freedom to move in the direction of creating and exploring an incredible life.  Now is the time to remove that which is not in alignment to move on to a clear trajectory instead of a scattered one. The more tuned into ourselves we are and the more we tap into our depths we will be more fluid with addressing what is out of alignment and what is not. Sometimes…..it takes awhile and that is okay. Eventually we get insight when we are willing to look, when we are honest, and the timing is right. Five of Wands reminds us to dive in, tune in, and don’t get up until you know whats up! Delay will only prolong what is wishing to be seen.

Five of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Five of Cups is striking. Immediately gives a feeling of sadness and despair. The color of the horse is white, which symbolizes a purity and innocence energy present. The head hangs low in the darkness, absorbed in energy that is pained, doubtful, and grim. Above the horses head is light space with five cups hovering above the creatures head. The cups are on a higher plane than the horse, above him, and he pays no attention to their presence. Instead the energy of the card is paying most of the attention with the darker aspects of his experience while completely missing there are always both energies of shadow and light present. If we are alive, we are never fully engrossed in only darkness, but with energy focusing solely in that direction it can seem that is…all encompassing. When looked at more closely, a tiny detail on the horse is seen is a slight smile, barely noticeable. An energy is felt that perhaps on some level, in a subtle way, this dark energy is enjoyed in some way and is what is adding fuel to this low vibration. While there are five cups floating above, perhaps the energy here is suggesting there is a choice of not wanting to see.

To see a free spirited and strong creature slumped over in darkness can suggest that something in the querents life is not aligning with their soul purpose, that which makes them feel alive. vibrant and in harmony with life. It is possible the querent will intuitively know what the card is pointing to as it is drawn. The initial feeling of what is seen is worth the investigation as it can be a trigger that is connected to something deeper and ignites a initial spark inside. If there is a time where perhaps we are not expressing the passions that are intertwined deeply with our heart we can begin to lose vibrancy. Our unique soul expressions are a necessary part of our health and happiness and many times are linked with the main source of our life force/prana.  If one is prioritizing only practical matters before that which makes their soul move, this sadness or despair can creep in and replace creative vision and expression. Five of Cups invites balance to what is practical in nature, but to never forget what excites and nourishes oneself deeply. Although this present time can have a shade of powerlessness on various levels, we always have the power of attention.  Where is one focusing attention? What is the quality of life that this attention focused is highlighting?

Five of Cups represents a loss or pain and on top of that shame and guilt that is felt. This is what keeps the energy in the darkness. The pain felt is not coming from the experience itself, but from the mental and emotional activity added on top of the turmoil already being experience. This stretches out the healing process for weeks, months, even years. Some beings may go through life with this extra layer of shame or guilt added on top of an experience that is long gone. Because this mental activity is held on to it makes the healing much more painful and drawn out. There is a victimization going on in this card.  Clinging to the past when there is so much to be immensely grateful for now. There are times when we have to shake these ghosts that seem to be sucking our sweet nectar. There is a time to feel it all, but there is also a time to check in and make sure one is not dwelling in the darkness for too long. It arises for us to learn and grow, but it isn’t meant for us to set up camp and remain in the shadows. Energy is always flowing, the waters always moving, and there is always the opportunity to navigate in a new way. Five of Cups can represent something like an investment in unhealthy emotions or ways of thinking, a death in the family, something that is weighing on you in the slightest or heaviest way that is draining your energy. Ask yourself, maybe through journaling or whenever you feel, has there been to deep of an investment to that which is no longer serving you? Have you been grieving, sitting in sadness, or wallowing for too long? It is time to get fresh energy flowing. Whatever has happened or whatever state you find yourself in, it can be learned from and used wisely as another tool through your travels.

All that pains us and pushes us is also a catalyst for creation. Some of the most beautiful artists in the world experienced tremendous pain in life and transmuted this energy to beauty for themselves and others. We are not only one label or shape that we can package nicely and say “This is me” Jesus….that would be fucking boring. If one can package themselves in any shade of the broad spectrum, this will be a sad day. We are all vast and uniquely orchestrated beings. When we identify heavy with one aspect of self we can tend to ignore or even have a distaste for the other. Sometimes this can block or cut off valuable aspects of or being. Five of Cups is an opportunity to embrace what may feel harsh in the beginning, but a reminder to not dwell there and know that all can be transmuted into creative energy. Many times when we feel we are in a slump or even stuck in any state of despair we think well shit…..THIS IS IT!!!! At that specific moment is when the most brilliant creation is waiting be birthed forth. As death comes of an aspect of being we are ready for the creative force to move us. This is part of the invitation here. Look at what is being tuned into and do not wallow. Feel, but do not stay in any lowly state too long. Allow your being to mature, learn and move on.

.::.

We are vast, creative forces with many options to explore. Allow the natural movement flow.

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 & 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 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.

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.

Nine of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Nine cups are drawn in the shape of a lucky horse shoe with a crescent moon at the top of the card. The moon is depicts the listening to subtle guidance within that has moved one in a way that feels gratitude and contentment for what is. The hues of blue and purple in the background are soothing colors that reflects a being of equanimity and deep rest within. This is a time where one is enjoying the pleasures of life, but not taking life for granted and appreciating deeply what is present. Nine of Cups can feel a bit day dreamy as the cups float against the smooth horizon. The invitation is to allow the daydreaming to be, as this is your inspiration and creativity. However, allow daydreaming and action to merge towards those visions. This will allow dreams to fully take form. There is deep joy in all areas of ones experience now and whatever way you move will be from a place of love, not fear or doubt. This will create tremendous beauty in your wake.

Cups represent the emotional state of being, relationships, self expression, creativity, and moving from the heart. At this time one is overflowing in all areas of life and love is pouring through to all relationships and creations. As you feel the abundance in all aspects of life, worry and fear has left your experience. It simply isn’t there, life is moving you in a way that is most natural to your being. The power of presence is felt instead of the mind ruling your action. Nine of Cups is a natural balance with all of nature where one is not feeling as an outsider in life, but connected to the whole of creation. The magic of what is felt has already flooded through the bloodstream and there is no going back to old ways of being. Like a snake, many skins have been shed and the way in which you feel life is without tension. This moves you to create, play, work, and communicate in ways that are open and fresh. Manipulation, grasping, and wanting life to be different is gone and one is seeing the immensity of beauty that is always here.

Nine of Cups is a card of gratitude. The more gratitude that is felt the less we feel we need to have more. We really begin to experience the fullness of our life emanating from the inside instead of trying to collect things, people, or experience to fulfill inner discontent. Nine of Cups is full of overflowing abundance, this does not necessarily mean one is wealthy in terms of monetary gains. One is fulfilled of the riches of simply being alive. This vibration alone turns everything in gold. All that you place your energy towards come from this clear channel. You are creating beauty, experiencing love, joy, relationships are flourishing, and others you come into contact with are inspired and fulfilling meetings. Any goal you have now will do well if you remain investing your energy in the direction you wish. The Nine of Cups is a time of enjoying beauty in mother earth and your self, delighting in your senses, art, love making, and all that connects you to life. This automatically inspires every movement, all creation, work, and all things birthed from you now.

.::.

Something to think about in relishing in life is that the ebb and flow is always changing. Now may be all about the pleasures of life and enjoying, but the invitation here is to keep one foot on the ground as you enjoy and to not over indulge in what may “feel good.” The invitation is to be in deep gratitude for what is. When this vibration is present overindulgence will not be an issue and one can fully enjoy the present. Nine of Cups is the wish card of the deck. Not that something will fall out of thin air into your lap, but where your energy is invested will come into full physical being at this time.

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

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.

Son of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Son of Swords has tremendous focus and determination for what he desires to see manifest in his life. Some will view him as obsessed or overly ambitious. Son of Swords sees his movements as a fulfilling way to see something through to completion.  He is flying on his sword fiercely, with intense power in one direction and one direction only. He is not on the fence about his quest, but completely throwing himself in without fear. He sees only plan A, no plan B. There are those in his life who will disagree with this seemingly narrow way of moving, but this compulsion to move so confidently in one direction he cannot deny.  This is the temperament of his being and he’s riding the wave. Those who wish to agree or disagree may do so freely, he will continue on his journey with high momentum and not lose sleep over opinions.

There are risks and challenges which will show up and confront him along his journey. The Son of Swords seems to disregard all of these future possibilities of failure. His attitude is “I will cross that bridge when it comes.” He does not see dangerous territory he only sees the way he needs to move in his freedom, he is not fearful of may or may not come. There is a pure creative force driving the Son of Swords. He surrenders to the force which is moving him in galaxy strides throughout the cosmos. Where once there was so much resistance within him, now he has surrendered to this grace which has always been guiding him.

.::.

Wherever the focus of attention the Son of Swords has put his being towards, there will be great success. There will also be intense learning experiences that are highly challenging because of the nature of his bold movements. In one way it speeds up his learning because of constant challenges that arise which stretch his being. His nature to never play it safe or remain comfortable is always expanding his being. Although his attitude is strong and swift towards his goal, he must be cautious of not rushing. He can still move fiercely with determined and excited power, but he must be aware of the quality of his flight. It is wise for him to be in alignment with each step toward his goal. Not to be so fixed on the end goal but to see each moment as the end goal while he moves toward the bigger picture. The Son of Swords will be misunderstood by those close to him, but the force which moves him is one he trusts greater than the opinions of others. The invitation is to allow the momentum to naturally propel one into the direction you are presently moving. Stay mindful of trying to get anywhere other than where you are, allow your vision to be present and not one which may bind your spirit in time. All tools, resources, and experience are here with you now. When we move with love this will be reflected in the goal. If “the end” is more important than now this will be detrimental to this incredible sharp and present focus of the Son Swords. Fully be in each moment and allow your creativity to seep out of your pores like magic. As you move in this way you will not be fueling your goal with a nervous energy but one that is full, whole, and complete. Your momentum is strong now. Allow it to flow, but do not race or force it. Fully embrace the natural flow that is already moving you.

Five of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Five of Swords represents self destruction. A worm or parasite has been cut in half. The “ugly” has come to the surface and self-destructive patterns are coming out of hiding. Patterns are being noticed and looked at more closely than ever before. Where once things could have been set aside or taken lightly, one is now feeling the heaviness of their own self imposed limitations. Although this seems to be a card one wishes to flip over and redraw…it is the perfect opportunity to look at any patterns that are arising and break the ongoing cycle. Reoccurring events that happen in ones life which drain power are dropping hints to navigate in a different way. This could be honest communication with self/others, a carelessness that is effecting you and “other” beings in your life. This can be a number of things which one is acting upon that is not alignment with your integrity. This can arise as something small that grows into a mighty parasite that feeds off you. Five of Swords has been cut, which means whatever this is which is draining energy, it has been exposed. This dark aspect is now out in the open and you are witnessing and acknowledging it instead of ignoring. So although a morbid card the upside is one is actually seeing what has been leaking out energy.

Five of Swords invitation is to identify where this energetic leak seems to be happening and to address it. There are some things by themselves that seem to drop away effortlessly. However, whatever is present now is asking for acknowledgement. This gentle way of seeing and holding space for this to arise will allow it to be released. Some patterns are deeply rooted within us, but we can choose to stop identifying with them and release our grip of  identity. You are vast and limitless being, never bound by anything in particular. We alone hold ourself hostage by repeating patterns that no longer serve us. As we inquire into our patterns we can see easily how they are fueling our identification to a certain state of being. We are allowed to give up old stories to allow what is true in the present moment to shine through. We weaken and age ourself on many levels by hanging on to old broken stories about our idea of who we are. Sometimes we do this because we are afraid of the immensity our own freedom. It can be scary at first to feel so open, without identifications to people, stories, wounds, events, etc. On the other side of our self destructive tendencies there is infinite space and possibility, all the magic is present. So whatever pattern is being witnessed now is being seen as it is being kicked out the door. Grace is moving all.

.::.

Five of Swords represents defeat. The kind of defeat that must be acknowledged and through this defeat one will rise again stronger than ever. Defeat sounds depressing, but in fact this is exactly what is needed to happen for you to realign with natures harmonic rhythm. There is nothing lost here, only lessons that have been learned. Through ones own experiences and defeats we listen more intuitively in ways we wish to move. We start developing a deeper trust with ourself and our voice. We see we cannot ignore what is felt inside and we align again with our natural movement.

The Empress, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Empress is the earth mother. She is the feminine that nurtures all of life. She is the beauty seen in nature, art that moves you, music which ignites the fire within. She is fertile with child, and she is birthing creativity and expression. She rules the planet venus and pure evidence that Grace exists. The Empress is the reminder of deep nurturing, love, and growth in the masculine and the feminine presence. The Empress card depicts a white tree glowing in the moonlight with a pink and purple energy emitting from the magic within. A crescent moon shines above, the moon is all that is woman. She represents women from all stages of life, reminding us of the soft yet powerful light the feminine carries. There is something in this feminine presence that seems to remove all doubt, fear, lack, and frustration from ones path. This card can either represent yourself, someone else in your life, or attributes that are reminding you to nurture, love, and care for all you create. Allow anything that is impeding you to be seen as a small bump in the road, or nothing at all. The more we allow this feminine presence to naturally bloom and flourish, we are easily guided on our path. Seeing how all is interconnected, one is never somewhere in life conflicting ones path. The Empress reminds us all stages, phases, growth, death and rebirth unfolding and will continue to cycle naturally.

.::.

The Empress is for man or woman nurturing their creative gifts and abilities, giving the full attention and watching them transform quickly and grow beyond anything imaginable. The Empress encourages this creativity to be developed and for all resources to be explored and utilized. The Empress is the divine mother of creation. All that is birthed, is birthed through her. She has no limits to what creations can be brought forth and there is not end to what can be discovered. The Empress takes the creative energy of a child into a mature adult who has experience on this earth. The empress creates from all she has seen and tells stories through her creations. The Empress is not interested in work that is robotic and mundane. She allows life to course through her, spontaneously and alive, fresh in the moment. The Empress ignites a natural life, one that is born from the earth. She is the ancient grandmother tree that contains all wisdom and skill to create what is felt inside. She is the laughter that bursts when we don’t trust our natural process and think in terms of practicality. Her practicality is different from the mainstream world. Her practical nature comes from the knowing that she is one with all of nature, she is nature itself. She knows what comes through her will always be supported by the divine will. As the trees are supported to grow fully and robustly, she too will be supported in all her hearts natural desire to be.

.::.

The Empress is grounded in the present plane and simultaneously has access to all other realms. She is traveling in each moment as she is here, she feels/sees how her vibration is traveling through all of time in every moment. The Empress knows that the deep seeds of creation within her have been nurtured deeply. Not only by her own energy on this plane, but the infinite vibration of her expression that travels throughout and beyond time. This immense creative energy cannot fail as it moves, it is the most natural and simple when we allow it to be whatever it wants to be. Is it even up to us? Can a musician not play music? Do they even have a choice? Maybe….but perhaps, food for thought. How can we deny our most intimate natural expression? Does this occur because we feel different or strange, maybe afraid of what others think? All of those are absurd illusions we buy into when we want to believe in our separation from life. This is an intimate part of all of our process. We can try and practically find ways to maneuver out of our naturalness to fit in with a mainstream system. We are free to do so. However, The Empress is the embodiment of full allowance for gifts and magic to flow through her veins. She does not hide who she is. Like the flower that blooms without thinking, this is The Empress. Her natural evolution to embody all of creation without a thought. It simply, must arise from her being.

.::.

The Empress is the mother of the moon. She opens for you if you share your presence with her. She drinks you inside until you completely merge with her. Her femininity wraps you in her velvet cloak and embraces you and encourages you to deeply follow the secret longings of your heart. She comes to you in the night with a spark of an idea, a fire felt inside, music to be played, places for you to discover within and without. She is the birth of all of life and reminds you of the miraculous nature you are. Anything you wish to create she shows is possible. She encourages one to witness the power of attention put into any creation and the fruits of the work one will discover. This springs from an idea, but can also die as an idea. Only with energy put into action will this birth take the embodiment of life.

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.

Five of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Against a black background a red, wilted rose sheds one petal from her bloom. At the top of the card there is half a moon shining with a string of pentacles in between the light and dark of the card. There is sadness and loss present, from spiritual to material. This is a time where a feeling of aloneness is present, but not the kind of aloneness which is strong and fulfilled on its own. This is an overwhelming feeling of lack within and without and a time where it feels like there is no energy to move forward.

We are all bound to go through these kinds of major deaths in our life. Where it can truly feel like one is dying. Often, and of course not all the time, there are many little things that if not expressed correctly remain within ones being and at a certain point must come to the surface. This is a time where one is depleted in their energy because of not taking full responsibility for themselves. Although not always easy to hear, one can only come to a place of loss and defeat when they have given up their internal power to external sources for means of joy.  Whatever chaos is being experienced now, if within ones self, a relationship, family, work, creativity….this period is for now only. There is a reason for it, for one to wake up more fully to their own internal power and to no longer seek this from any external source. It is a hard lesson to receive, but a blessing for one to get real and honest.

.::.

It is time to open ones eyes. To not walk around blindfolded and to really see what is going on within ones experience. Everything is reflecting where one is seeing lack within themselves, therefore it is being experienced within ones life. What is it that feels like its missing, that is not already present now? Whatever that is, look at it more closely and see if you are in fact holding this back from yourself. Can the people around you, your work, any situation that is being experienced truly hold you back from being you? It can be easy to blame even if another has caused hurt, but why is this being reflected anyway? Why is this showing up in the present moment experience? There is something present that is here that points back to you and you alone. Nothing can shift your present moment naturalness of being you unless you give up your own authority and leak your own power. It is a tender time and that is okay, we all experience death and it is crucial we experience a death of our illusions. Know your power will be uncovered again and you will come out even stronger and with greater depth. Allow your self to fully be with yourself right now, to listen to your own voice before drinking in what other have to say. Allow this aspect of you that wants to die to die, and continue to bloom again.

The Sun, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Sun is beaming. Reminding us to share our own light. She emanates her radiance from the center to all four corners of the card where the birds continue to carry out the spirit of the sun. The four birds represent the four directions, the elements, and the four suits of the Minor Arcana. Every aspect of this card is blessed and shining with deep reverence for all that is. The spirit of this card is gratitude, grace, full vibrancy, complete trust in life, and oneness with all.

.::.

There is nothing hidden in The Sun. All is brought to light with radiance and abundance vibrating in every cell of ones being into the far reaches of all the galaxies. The sun is you, filled with a fire that is shining through all obstacles as you continue to do what you love and play with passion. This warm energy that you are moving with is not only nurturing the seeds you are planting, but this energy is also being shared with others as you go. Everything you touch at this time is turning into gold. Why? You aren’t doubting each step you are taking, you embody full fire blazing a unique way in the direction your heart pulls you toward. There is no safety here and this doesn’t seem to sway you or dampen the spirit that you are. Life has really shown you that you can fully trust and do not need to worry. You are taken care of more than you can possibly comprehend now.

.::.

Hopefully, in this moment you are screaming yes to life. The Sun is inviting you to her warmth, to say yes to what lays dormant within that wishes to be expressed. We came in human form not to deny our earthly existence, but to play and enjoy while we are here! What are ways that you are not allowing yourself to play, and what ways do you wish to investigate within yourself and discover? The Sun card says whatever excites you most, put your attention there and allow yourself fully to give yourself to this expression. There is not one soul in the entirety of the universe who can express in the way you can. There is nothing to compete with and nothing to lose. We all are bursting with unique gifts that are just waiting for us to say yes. If you have already said yes, this is deeply felt…you are already doing what you know is in complete accordance with your flavor of being. The Sun Card is full energy. Do not deny this energy now when it is dripping from your sweet skin. Allow yourself to express this creative love and focus this energy in the direction that is most alluring to you.

.::.

Your life will be flowing with great ease with The Sun Energy. All your endeavors, serious or playful, will be fluid and energized. Everything is unfolding in simplicity. Even as challenges come, there isn’t a mental pressure you add on top of the challenge. This makes for a great flow for all that you are currently involved. Even when chaos comes you are light and can handle what once seemed stressful and erratic. There is an abundance of light emanating from you that has no time for bullshit. You are creative, energized, excited, and feel tremendous joy for life. The Sun, may also be reminding you to soak up the rays outside in nature and allow yourself to get in touch with that warmth and relaxation she freely gives you. Nature is a simple and profound way to get in touch with ones being and to move in life gracefully. Nature has absolutely no resistance to what is and reminds us to keep exploring what we are naturally attracted to.

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.

Seven of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Seven of Pentacles represents heartfelt action, work related or creative one has been investing sweet energy and time and energy into. This can go from early stages of thought process into the action of the process. Either way, there has been an amazing flow of loving energy with this endeavor. It is time to pause and reflect on what has been accomplished thus far. Sometimes we forget how much has even bloomed because we are so into the project we cannot see how much we have actually accomplished. It is good to remember that even a giant yes in a direction that feels in complete alignment is a really big step. It is not to be discarded because one has not yet seen fruits of this new direction. Look closer, you will see fruits if you zoom in a bit more. There is already momentum underway if you have said yes to something that feels absolutely in alignment. Whether one is in the new idea of the work, a few months underway, or a year engaged in the process, take time right now to really see how far you have come. Sometimes what can happen now, is a hint of doubt because one has not seen full fruits of this dance. Remember, zoom in again and take a deeper look. The invitation with the Seven of Pentacles is, if what you are working on is in alignment with you…then keep going. When you work with present moment love this is what you will always be met with. Life is mirroring this to you in every moment with what vibration emanates from inside.

Seven of Pentacles invites the investigation of other aspects of ones life. Is any area zapping energy that could be invested in your work/project? Take a moment to think about this. What areas are you playing in that don’t necessarily feed you sweet energy? When we see where we are leaking energetically, we can simply choose to stop investing that which is no longer serving us. There are things we do each day that are either empowering us or draining our energy. Allow yourself to be honest and transparent. Give yourself the opportunity to turn this into more energy for what you love and what serves your heart. This can be anything from friends that drain you, food/habits, work that no longer serves, thought patterns, or whatever it is that is zapping you on some subtle or gross level. As we realize what drains us and allow that to fall away we are automatically telling life that we are ready for more beauty and love. Life responds and mirrors us in profound and immediate ways when we allow to fall away what doesn’t serve our highest good. What serves the highest good is very different for each individual human. This is why judging ourselves or others on what is the highest for each one is completely unknown…until its known. We do not know what others need on their journey and sometimes we don’t always know what we need, we are all navigating according to present moment perspective. We have the freedom to allow others to explore and for us to explore as well. The more open we are to this exploration and open to moving in the direction of our heart, the easier we will find to listen to the subtle ways our being wishes to move. We extend freedom to ourselves and others when we allow all to fully all to be as they are.

.::.

Seven of Pentacles is a reminder to naturally move in the present moment with full love in whatever direction is naturally calling. Know that when you move in this way you cannot go wrong because anything that comes through you is in accordance with the harmony of the universe. Modern day society is built around linear time, how fast one can accomplish, and how to please the status quo. None of these things are natural to our being and quite frankly the universe doesn’t really give a shit about that. We all work at different speeds and we are all learning lessons we need to along the way that are blasting open old limitations so we can discover our naturalness, our infinite nature. When one is dancing in full love, we move with the rhythm of the entire cosmos propelling us through the galaxy with no time, speed, or agenda. There is something pure about this movement and when one is honest and transparent about how they would actually like to be moving in life then one is supported in ways beyond anything they can possibly imagine. One can only experience this when they take risks and step out of comfort to play in the realm that their heart desires. Play it safe in linear time where the masses seem to be withering away in spirit, OR, continue to take risks doing what the heart calls for that is enriching in each moment?

Ace of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

“This cup, the temple that is so full, has value only if it pours itself into the world. At the base of love is the desire to give away everything that it has collected.” – Alejandro Jodorowsky ‘The Way of Tarot’

.:.

Grace of love radiates the Ace of Cups. Nourishment on all levels of being are expressed fully in the present moment. One radiates contentment and ease that glows through ones field in decadent, juicy, creative abundance. Filled with the spirit of love and not an ounce of conflict with what is. All is abundant, fresh, and outpouring with inspiration. This gives tremendous space within to play, feeling light and free – but also to enrich the lives of others with the gifts one has received. Originating from a space that is clear, open, and imbued with rose infused love the Ace of Cups overflows in labradorite geometries weaving webs of abundance shared through understanding. Full allowance of the divine play is fully present, unfolding the glorious gifts given to those who are ready to receive the next golden step to reach sustainable growth flowering from pure hearted awareness.

Ace of Cups sweet nectar pours itself into you from heavenly realms and gives birth to what is seen & experienced. A child’s playful essence interwoven with mature depth and unending appreciation through experience of being.  Recognize the inherent freedom and the freedom of others and all of life that is present. There is no manipulated  malevolent energy, all has transmuted into the burning wings of a newborn phoenix. There remains a deep awe of all experiences and unfolding that have allowed one to never cease tire in growth and expansion. Deep freedom extends to all of life like a fountain of deep purple hued elixir pouring into the mouth of the earths most sacred and hidden caverns. This pure and untainted love moves like a liquid storm of pink lilacs and turquoise roses. Deep relaxation that gives might and security to creative freedom. Abundant flow is rediscovered in absolute alignment of spirit. This blooms from life stripping what is not true hearted. Ones entire energetic field dances in the same frequency as source energy is unveiled without draining this infinite undressing we unweave by invisible threads of light.

Immense creativity pouring through like lightning bolts through a desert storm. Allowance of power facilitates growth. Conduit of clarity. What pours from this cup is a gift for oneself and equally those who enter your energetic path. The essence of what wishes to come through was patiently dormant until present, enough space has been felt to fully allow the red velvet curtain to rise. A blooming voice, intuitive body, and strategic action is embodied fully to move visions fully to flower anew.

.::.

Love is the essence. Untainted, pure, and unconditional. Experience within, naturally an attracting of this love within relationships. A meeting of a pure reflection of what is held within the multidimensional heart. Allow this love to expand into the depths of your being. This pure love sheds any final fragmentations of layers and bring out the shining diamonds waiting to be discovered.  This creates a bond and space for deeper love and great earth and ethereal expansion to develop and refine. Love is the guide.  Embrace the total beaming beauty of you in realms of subtlety and full light spectrum. The love that is experienced to such an incomprehensible degree present will saturate each cell with excitement of what is and what is to come. Every day will brim with new found possibility and action of inspiration.

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.

Four of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Four of Wands reveals itself at a time of a deep joy that springs from a completion of a chapter in ones life. A new way of seeing coming into being. Something has been discovered which was masking clarity and true vision. A portal has been opened within ones being. What was once closed is now wide open and shining in a completely new way, touching dark spaces with renewed energy. The portal is seen through the wands cross that forms a diamond shape. Diamonds are strong and pure, representing the essence of our spirit before we place self judgement to cover up our being. What is the veil that has been lifted and how are you seeing in a brand new way? Something about this shift in perception has revealed a new way of seeing that cannot be discarded. A new reality is being experienced and this is a time where one is stable in listening to the voice of Spirit/God within them. The glowing shade of blue in the center of the card is the intuitive voice which guides us and the yellow/red bursts of color is the natural action which springs forth from this voice. As this portal is opened into our infinite nature we are extending freedom to all of life to dance in its brilliance.

There is an intuitive intelligence here. One that is infinitely expanding naturally. Life is expanding on its own and when we force or push our conditioned ways on life we begin to feel contracted. As we swim with the stream of life, the doors of infinity keep revealing more love and beauty to be seen. We discover ways in which we were closing the doors that were presenting themselves to us. The Four of Wands is an expansion where one is saying yes to life and allowing the invitation of the divine to take over completely. Whatever challenges have appeared within ones life are all seen as invitations to drop in completely to life as it is. This extends a massive feeling of gratitude within the being for all challenges that have been experienced and all challenges that will come.

There is an interesting and quite beautiful dance that is happening with the Four of Wands. There is an explosion of excitement and joy that is being expressed but beyond that is a silent depth is recognized that has given birth to this explosion. A peace and contentment is present and exciting adventure is simultaneously on the rise. Relationships, projects, creativity, and all that is engaged with right now will be emerging with fluidity and ease. There is a clarity in movement that is expressing itself in all areas of ones life. Communicating seems to come easier, working is joyful and doesn’t feel like work, there is lightness in how one moves from the body and into life. Weight that was being held has been discovered to be illusion and now somehow fallen away. An exciting time to feel weightless and free.
.::.
If life isn’t feeling light within the being, Four of Wands is inviting one to investigate the heaviness that is felt within. To not ignore the heaviness, but to open that door and acknowledge what wishes to be seen. Our pain is an invitation to extend more love, compassion, and gentleness towards ourself. If we resist/ignore our pain it strengthens and grows in power. The more open we are to looking at what is arising we are telling life that we are willing to be honest with ourselves. This honesty allows us to embrace all that arises and we learn more and more to extend love instead of judgement. Instead of perceiving problems as obstacles we extend freedom to ourselves and others to feel what is present in order to move through with all embracing arms. All is magick. All is love.

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.

Eight of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

A butterfly, tightly wrapped in itself hangs from a sword. She is surrounded by seven swords which are not touching her, but if she opens her wings would tear her to pieces. It appears there is no way of expanding. The butterfly is stuck and unable to open her wings in fear of what may happen. The energy of the card is frozen and unable to make any movement. The Butterfly cannot see as she is hidden within herself and this does not allow for even the slightest movement keeping her where she is. What is it that keeps the butterfly bound? Surely, there is a way to expand. What is keeping her from finding a way? Her sight is showing to be completely blinded keeping her immobile and fragile.

The Eight of Swords is inviting one to look at the current experience from a different angle, because the current way of seeing isn’t making any progress. Any feeling of being the victim of experience is what will keep one bound not allowing movement within the being or the mind to see other possible solutions for current experience. There cannot be any healthy movement when the belief of victimhood is at play. We remain blinded to the possibility of numerous options for ourselves. If there is a feeling of being stuck there is surely a victim role playing that is inhibiting one from seeing clearly and choosing a healthy option from the infinite options that are always available. It is only when we have created self imposed limitation that we feel as though there is no way out. Before taking any action we most remove our blindfold that keeps us small and limited so we can take right action and not action based on our perceived limitations.

There is a powerlessness present with the Eight of Swords. No where to move, no where to go. This is an illusion that has created a self imposed prison. There is no savior that can come from the outside to carve the way for us. This is a time acknowledge illusions and see how they have been at play. When these are seen one can step back into their own power and activate once again right choice and action from a healthy space. We always have choices and we always have options. When we feel stuck we have given up our power to an outside source. This is a time pay attention and to not ignore what is going on. Time to step into oneself acknowledging what has been ignored, neglected, or murdered certain aspects of self and regain strength once again. This will open up what has been a closed box and bring the breath of life, choice, right action, and vibrancy into being. It is a powerful time because coming out of this one will see they can never give up their power in this way again. As negative as this card feels it is truly a powerful time of immense transformation and growth when seeing through the veils of self imposed illusion.

.::.

As one becomes honest and transparent with what the current experience, this will open many doors. When we truly want to see our experience for what it is we will be able to see how our actions gave birth to our present moment experience. We are constantly saying yes and no to life which is opening doors and closing others. What is it that you would like to say yes and no to within your experience? Sometimes we can allow things into our life that isn’t healthy for our well being. When this happens this is how we learn to say no instead of yes. We are constantly learning, growing, and changing what we will allow into our lives as we mature. The Eight of Swords is saying be honest with yourself and allow what is healthy for you to be of high value. If you are being faced with a choice or a new transition in life allow what you value to be held highly so you do not entrap yourself in situations or experiences that are out of alignment with your values. There are no closed doors here even if it may seem that way. This is simply a time for realigning your values, honoring them and not settling for anything less. Allow your actions and movements to be honored by what you value most highly, and do not allow yourself to be swayed by those who oppose you. As ones heart is sincere and always open to learning and growing there will be others who do not agree with you. Let those who do not value what you value fall away and allow life to bring those that are in alignment with you to be by your side. At the end of each day if we feel we are making choices with honor and respecting ourselves and all of life as a whole, we cannot go wrong. Now is the time for a deep checking in and profound honesty with oneself.

Seven of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

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 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.
