The Wild Unknown Freedom Spread #1

The Wild Unknown Tarot

1.) To initiate movement towards freedom you must… <<<Seven of Cups>>>

<<Meditate>>Contemplate>>Past>>Present>>Future>>Choose Direction>>

There is a choice to be made. Dreams/Visions/Plans. What direction will be pursued? Is there an over abundance of scattered direction, or does one trust how they are moving? There are many cups one can choose from, which one is the correct choice? There is only one cup depicted that stands upright and the rest are upside down. One direction is the higher choice for the querent now, but it is also the highest choice for fulfillment in the longevity of the path. Many choices presenting themselves are illusions and distractions. How will the querent choose the correct path for their unique journey?


We are invited to investigate our life and how we have chosen to walk our path until now. What has been working and what needs to shift in order to be fulfilled in a deep way? Is the vision seen within being expressed in physical form? Or is this vision dancing in ethereal realms not being brought down onto this earthly realm? Now is the time to choose one cup and move fully in that direction. If we take the time to meditate with how we want to move there is a prominent vision that will strike us more than others. This can be an idea that keeps coming back into our life that we cannot ignore. The Seven of Cups speaks to choose wisely and contemplate our unique journey from past to present and consider the most authentic way to navigate and continue moving. As the development of trust grows, movement becomes more clear how to continue forward. This is how we initiate and honor clearer movement towards freedom on our path.

 

2.) An Obstacle that will grace your path will be… <<Ten of Swords>>

<<Victimization>>

This is a time to check in with attitude. What holds us back from pursuing what we feel attracted to pursue? The root of many doubts and fears can be an underlying blame or victimization for our circumstances. The invitation is to sincerely investigate feelings, thoughts, or belief systems that are empowering feelings of victimization. How are we victims in our own life or how are we blaming others for our situation? When we can clearly look within and see ways in which we have been limiting our own visions and dreams by playing the victim role in our life we can begin to move in a new direction that empowers us and removes deluded thinking. This obstacle of Ten of Swords is connected with the Seven of Cups when it comes to choosing the correct path. If one is stuck in a victimization role, chances are the right choice of what direction to move in will not be chosen. When we are in states of victimhood we are making our daily choices from a space of lack and unclarity feeling as if life is attacking us. When we stand within our being strongly we are able to see and move from a space of love and truth. Once subtleties of victimization are seen it will be painful to feed that type of energy again and will naturally fall away. Once this energy leaves the body/mind/spirit the power that comes into being towards a clear path will reach a new level of fire and momentum.

 

3.) Moving past that obstacle will require… <<Six of Wands>>

<<Resilience>>To Rise Above>>

A Butterfly flutters above mangled wands entrenched in darkness. What is required to be in the position of lightness and complete transformation is persistent resilience and a movement of love. Life has brought many experiences to each one of us that tests our strength in a multitude of ways. If we have been able to move through the victimization the Ten of Swords brings and honor our path in complete fullness this will open up many doors that were once thought to be closed. The butterfly is the full embodiment of what it is to connect with our essence and fully honoring our unique path. It is light, bright, and free. Not because it hasn’t experienced or touched darkness, but because one has transcended many dark aspects of being to come this far. The darkness is still present within the butterfly, assisting in the recognition of the entirety of being, not only choosing what one prefers to see but being one with the totality of what really is. To move past obstacles that arise on our path we must embody an unwavering resilience that stands firm in the truth of our being. As we rest in this space we are able to move through challenges with grace.

 

4.) Freedom may look like… <<Daughter of Wands>>

<<Creative>>Inspired>>Firey>>

Freedom may look like a wild fire at first glance, but as the path becomes more mature and clear through experience this fire will burn softer and longer with a quieter force. The Daughter of Wands is an exciting energy filled with fire and inspiration. This energy burns hot and fizzles out if not tended to. This energy and excitement must be broken down to everyday practical movements to move this excited fire energy into an actual forward moving direction. Daughter of Swords is a warning of overly high energy that can lose a great deal of direction if not quietly harnessed to allow true growth to occur. The snake is wrapped around the flowering wand in an infinity shape. She is reminding us to harness our energy, bring it down a few notches and cultivate a nurturing space for what we wish to bring into being. Harnessing our fire and creative energy and learning to direct it wisely.

Ten of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Ten of Swords is about the embodiment of victimhood and the great release of it. Victimhood is a trap of the mind, which keeps us small in a very weak state of being. We do it to ourselves, nothing in this life can make us become a victim in our own life. There are subtle victimhood stages and ones that can seemingly overtake ones life. The bull depicted has hollow eyes with a sword piercing through both. Nine more swords pierce his body and he is falling into darkness. Just above him there is light emerging, which hints that just as victimhood is seen through the light breaks in revealing the game that was being played. However dark this card may appear we must go through various stages of darkness to see we must not be afraid to inquire into them. Being able to hold darkness within ones hand is far greater than avoiding it. If we fall into victimization and begin contemplating the state we are in, one can see how this pain has been an energetic self stabbing. No one else has created this but oneself. The good news with this is we can remove the swords of pain created and completely heal. Not only we come out of victimization, but we will gain immense wisdom for ourself and others at this time. This victimhood is also a blessing that is so painful we see we have no where to go and no where to escape to. It is a hard reminder, but one that can truly wake us up. Victimhood is not a path that can be recreated when we see the damage it truly causes, but we must walk through it to gain the knowledge we need on our journey. When something is actually understood on a deep level then one will not recreate the same trouble again. It is only when we do not truly understand the self created pain and believe it is coming from outside ourselves that we do not truly learn. When we see that nothing comes from outside in the way one has imagined then there is no one to blame, only to see the creation of illusion was ours. There is great freedom in this.

This card is disturbing to look at. It brings to mind the utter havoc we can wreak in our own life. The “poor me” victimhood that can be embraced when it is only the illusions of the mind believed in. Life itself is beautiful and miraculous even in its ugly and dark states. This is part of the great balance and miracle we find ourselves in. It is only our poor interpretation that causes so much trouble. Ten of Swords asks us to sincerely look at our state of being and feel if we are in our power or are we feeling self defeated. These thoughts of self defeat and victimhood are the snakes of the mind that we feed and keep us in the field of separation instead of our original state of oneness. All which we see “out there” will always be what is seen “in here.” When we truly see there is no separation of outside and inside we begin to move in our original power of wholeness. This card looks like rock bottom, but it is the beginning of no more victimization and blame on others. We see that all is arising as the Self and stop giving power to the beast of fleeting thoughts or emotions. We see through the madness and stay as we are. The wild circus becomes easier to spot and not identify with.

The death of victimhood brings about immense space in you. The allowing of spontaneous and joyous expression of you to play as a child and do what sets your heart ablaze. Victimization period is finished and it is seen as one of the most damaging plays one can create. In the divine perfection it is the perfect play for one to rise again and feel unbound and free in ones own kingdom. When the release of this painful victimhood releases and one sees through this self created hell, a freedom arises that can only laugh at its own silly game.
