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.

Eight of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

…::.. Eight  of  Cups ..::…

.::. Moving  Forward .::. Drastic  Change .::. Onward  &  Upward .::.

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

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

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

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

Three of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Three of Swords is bitter sweet. As painful of a time as it may be, it is an honest and transparent. All wondering, guessing, intuitive inquiring-but not quite understanding….All is crystal clear now. Painfully clear, but a great relief simultaneously. The card depicts three swords pointing downwards bound together by what looks like a mangled ribbon of blood dripping at the bottom. The background is blackened and grim behind the swords and the outer expanded energy is light. The light of truth has a way of revealing itself.


:.Words that arise are Intuition, Avoidance, Truth Emerging, Pain, Acceptance, Choice, and Healing.:

Within this raw and fresh discovery there is the inner knowing that one has already known all along, perhaps not the entirety of what has been revealed, but the feeling of something rumbling under the waters has been felt and unknown until now. This arises a deeper trust in what has been felt and a stronger and clearer connection with intuitive abilities. Strength of intuitive abilities can come and go, strengthening and weakening depending on our connection to our own being. As we go through experiences in life we are able to learn to trust ourselves and intuition can become more clear and refined. What has or is presently being revealed in ones current experience pushes the querent back into the heart of being ~ showing what was felt, is now confirmed. As hard of an experience this may be, immense strength and internal power will rise from what has been experienced.


When avoidance is present in subtle or gross levels this leaves room for untruths to remain within the experience. Three of Swords is a great reminder that when something is felt intuitively there are times when it is important to inquire and acknowledge what is arising within ones own being. If we ignore the messages our body and internal systems are signaling, we are denying aspects our being that are trying to communicate. As we allow these messages to fully come through, we honor our spirit and strengthen our internal guidance system. If we avoid what is arising we can sever our own energetic cords, which in their natural state has the ability to work with us in harmony. The invitation here is to listen deeply and not fall into avoidance of what is showing itself.


As the truth of what has been felt emerges into full understanding, whether it be from oneself, another, or environment it may almost feel like, oh…of course. Because all along there was the internal knowing before the truth was revealed. Although it is no surprise on one hand, there is still pain to be felt from the experience and to be held in loving space. As we feel the pain as it comes we are allowing it to be seen and acknowledged within the being so it can be felt, healed, and not be stored as trauma~only to be brought up again later. Now is the time to be with this pain in whatever way one goes into their being for healing. Each one of us process, feel, and heal in different ways. There are infinite ways for this and not a right or wrong way. Processing has nothing to do with avoidance and there are some cases where a masking of a problem can temporarily feel like healing, but it is simply stored and will arise again. Whatever allows you to be with the presence of your own being will be healing. Sitting in meditation is a very simple way to get in touch and tune inside. Meditation is not the only way as we are infinite in the ways which we move. Allow your being to naturally be drawn to what feels most organic.
.::.
Painful experiences give us the opportunity to push us in ways that break down old cycles and ways of being. In many ways stripping away illusions and leaving us raw with no where to cling or grasp onto in the physical world. The pain has the opportunity to draw us inside, to fill our own cup, and to strengthen our trust within our self before relying on any-thing or anyone. Teaching us to live from the inside out. Being, giving, trusting, loving, from our expansion. When what we cling to crumbles, we are left inside with the power of our natural being to move, navigate, love, create, and be in harmony with existence. We become more open and raw and we do not deny any aspect of ourselves but dive in fearlessly that which wishes to be seen, felt, and heard. Sometime we may dive in with fear, but either way excited to dive in or fearful to do so, one is not ignoring what is arising but open to what wishes to be seen. When that which arises is dark it is not to be avoided and shamed, but to be seen, explored, loved, and accepted. There is no precise guide or map. With the presence of our own being we encompass the energy of the moon and the sun which does hold the aspects of shadow and the light. Our being becomes more integrated instead of staying on one side or another. There is depth in ones being with the willingness to look. The feeling “I don’t want to go there” simply because it is a heavier aspect of being will be noticed as avoidance and a deeper trust emerges to go within. The humanness and divinity of our being are making friends.

Ace of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

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

.::.

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

.::.

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

Trust in yourself is growing and maturing ~

Three of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Three of Cups is a time for play, enjoyment, and absolute celebration. Three of Cups embodies dance, celebration, eating yummy food, and gathering with those we love. Three of Cups comes at a time where rest is needed before reengaging focus and direction towards a project, work, creation, school, travel, or a completely new direction. A solid foundation has formed and intuition and actions have united in positive direction. Energy is in alignment with being, merging the heavens and earth. The invitation is to melt into enjoyment and spontaneous fun. When we allow periods of rest and play this will feed the fresh energy needed to continue the work, moving solidly forward. If feelings of doubt aries that vision may be lost because of taking a break ~ see all the energy already invested and nourished thus far! The foundation is already there and the momentum is already moving in the correct direction. Think of taking a temporary rest or break from a goal as an energy investment for the long term future visions and goals. It will add more power to the work and empower ones energy.

Three of Cups invites us to look at what kind of people we are surrounded by. Are we inspired and led in a positive direction by those around us? Are we supported through highs and lows by the people we choose to befriend? Do they inspire healthy habits or negative ones? Do they support dreams and aspirations, or put them down? Three of Cups says investigate and look at the friends around us. Are we comfortable with friends simply because they have been in our life for years?  Are we scared to make new connections that may stretch comfort of what is known? Every detail of our life is constantly shapeshifting, molding, and forming our existence. When we have standards of the quality of people we choose to surround ourself with we are aligning with the highest within ourself. How do our friends reflect aspects of ourself that we want to change and how do they reflect aspects of ourself that empower strengths? Our friends are mirroring many layers of our own being. The attraction magnetizes people together for discovery, growth, and expansion. If a relationship is not pushing any boundaries, the inquiry here is to ask what is being overlooked that is causing this relationship to stay stagnant? Are there some relationships that can be let go of in order for new energies to move in? Or do conversations need to be opened for clear communication to move through? A solid and true friend will be willing to open the doors to expand on what is asking for clarity. Three of Cups asks us to align with those who are healthy for us, who push us in a positive direction, who support dreams and aspirations, who offer support through light and dark phases of life, and who honors what one deeply values in life because it is the same within them. Three of Cups invites us to let go of those who no longer align and allow new forces to come in that raise us in a higher ways.

.::.

There is a giving and receiving of energy that is fulfilling and authentic with Three of Cups. Aspects of being are flowing in unexpected ways. Through communication and everyday movements there is a maturing unfolding within and opening in new ways that allow many aspects of who one is to be more expressive than ever before. This is assisting in relating with many different people from all walks of life. Opportunities will be presenting themselves at this time, doors will be opening and interactions will be on the rise. One is either making their own way right now, or, there will be people reaching out in your line of work to collaborate with you. Intuition is wide awake now and can be trusted to continue your work alone or with others at this time. You are confident to know if it is right for you or not. Three of Cups says enjoy this period of expansion and play, allowing it to move you in fresh, spontaneous, and magical ways.

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.

The Star, The Wild Unknown Tarot

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

.::.

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

.::.

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

.::.

.::.You are dancing in your brilliance.::.

Six of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

We are ancient souls. As the trees have deep root systems in the earth and branches which touch the heavens, we are the same in this way. The height and depth of our being expand toward the sky and extend into the earth below. As we move through this life we are discovering unexplainable beauty we are blessed to experience. The trees roots represent ancient wisdom through our experiences, through our ancestors, and through collective consciousness. All that we have lived and witnessed is in our bloodstream creating our unique pattern. Our eyes can continue to open to subtler and subtler realms, or we can go to sleep and close our eyes when challenges arise. The power is always with us to open to life instead of close. The invitation is to open your sensitivity, be vigilant, and to not fall asleep after harsh experiences. We are invited by life to allow all that needs to arise within our experience and grow deeper roots as we travel all realms.  All that we have lived does not need to make us shrivel away and die while we are alive. We are meant to be shaken up to the immense beauty and magic that is present. The divine perfection that is ever permeating this fabric of existence.

Each being we meet has a root system with a different story, unique life movements, joyful times, extreme hardship, and everything in between. We cannot always know or see the root system of each individual. We can meet them with an empty mind, with no concepts or ideas about who we think they are. When we meet other beings with no mind, all judgement vanishes. This leaves room for immense healing and discovery to take place within each being. Our root systems may all have different stories, but when we meet as love we have space for all stories to be held in the vastness of our being. If one can meet another in this way, it is recognized within the capacity to hold space for yourself as you are. There is tremendous power in this acceptance for all as it is. It is where the magic of life is felt.

.::.

Our roots deeply grow into the earth. There is a connectedness to all of life that is felt within the ones being now more potently then ever before. All experiences from past have merged with your present and future to allow your being to flow with great ease. Where once your root system was shallow and weak, one is now absorbed in the ancient wisdom of spirits grace. As deep reflection of life moves the unfolding of your story, you are able to travel to new heights as lessons are learned from old stories. These lessons have a way of being learned overtime when we are ready and available to see. The ancient wisdom of our being has the capacity to be deeply rooted in the earth and high in the sky simultaneously. We are able to be here on the planet and simultaneously travel all realms of spirit. We do this when we are aware of it or not. A simple way of seeing our travel is through dreamtime. We discover in dream as we do in our waking state. As our roots run deep we open ourselves to learning from all and not limiting ourselves to one way of thinking or being. Life will continue to remove blind folders as we move from our ancient and sacred wisdom. This space defies all boundaries and definitions.

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.

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.

The Fool, The Wild Unknown Tarot

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

.::.

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

.::.

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

Four of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Absorbed in darkness, a rat rests atop four cups. Above him, a white light representing Pure Awareness & a crescent moon symbolizing intuition. Cups represent our emotional spectrum of being. Feelings, creativity, imagination, connections, love, and relationships with self and all of life. The rat is sitting on top of four cups being offered, but he is in the darkness. Four of Cups is asking if one is seeing what is here right now, or is one imagining themselves into the darkness? What are you not seeing that you already have? Are you being offered everything you need/want but cannot clearly see? This is a time that emotions are arising fiercely and a time to fully be present with them as they arise. When we take time to allow ourselves to feel what is, we will be able to truly see our present moment experience and all the beauty which is already present. In order for us to see our present moment reality we cannot ignore emotions that arise, we invite them in lovingly for they are wanting to be acknowledged. The invitation is to allow them to be felt fully and the being will naturally come into balance.

Sometimes we can miss the greatest gift that is with us all the time. We can wish or pine for things that are actually already here with us. When our mind and heart are divided we constantly see lack and that we do not have enough. When we are full of our own sweet nectar we see we aren’t missing anything and we are always divinely guided. We truly are seeing “outside” what we are “inside.” We don’t always want to say this is true because then we must take full responsibility for ourselves in a deep way. We can no longer blame outside sources for our suffering. In a way this is a great relief! Imagine if you had to fix everything outside of you?! What a freakin’ mess! Thankfully we have the opportunity to go inside ourselves and see where we hold resistance, be present with it and allow it to melt on its own accord. In one way we are responsible for the vibration we hold, but at the same time we see that all has been Grace sweeping through our house to show us the truth of our being, beyond limitations.

Four of Cups will come when there is dissatisfaction inside the being. One may feel as though there is something missing, or are not divinely guided. This feeling comes from an internal separation and cannot be satisfied by anything changed or shifted in the world. the change must come from our inner understanding. This can be a time where one has the urge to make drastic changes on the outside in order to feel differently. Four of Cups invites us to stay still. Before making any outside shifts in the outer world, take time to contemplate/reflect/meditate. Rest in your being and then see what changes occur naturally as you stay as awareness. The shifts that come from this space are always in alignment with your being. If one tries to change outside situation first, the internal peace will be temporary. Sooner or later the truth of dissatisfaction will present itself once again. We cannot avoid pain and conflict, we must face our darkness in order for any shifts to occur. We were built to have the capacity to hold space for this darkness. Four of Cups is an invitation to melt into your being and allow all actions to spring on their own natural accord.

The cups are here, abundance dripping all around. Somehow not being seen fully. There hasn’t been a full yes or full no to accept what life is presenting to you. There is a beauty being given to you because it matches your true vibration. Something within you is retreating out of fear. The invitation is that you are exactly where you need to be and you are being offered something rare and exquisite. You are on the right path, but you are blind because you are believing in doubts and fears instead of the truth of being. The cups are inviting you to drink from them and to trust life. Be fearless and say yes to what is here now. As we open fully to now, magic unleashes itself upon us. It has been here the whole time. As one resists, power is given to fears more than what is true. As you see through the nonsense you will see you are exactly where you need to be and your blackened cups will turn to liquid gold. When we see what is already present we stop taking life for granted and see the beauty in all that is.

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.

Judgment, The Wild Unknown Tarot

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

.::.

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

.::.

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

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

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.
