The Wild Unknown Freedom Spread #1

The Wild Unknown Tarot

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

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

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


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

 

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

<<Victimization>>

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

 

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

<<Resilience>>To Rise Above>>

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

 

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

<<Creative>>Inspired>>Firey>>

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

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.

Strength Card, The Wild Unknown Tarot

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

.::.

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

.::.

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

.::.

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