Four of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

four of swords the wild unknown tarot

Four of Swords follows the Three of Swords, which were three bound swords depicting a time of extreme pain and hardship. Four of Swords is the current time of more spaciousness that comes after a time of darkness experienced. This time is for contemplating what has been experienced and looking with compassion towards oneself for the next phase of the journey. One grows tremendously through darkness experienced. Wisdom and strength are discovered when we learn from our path and integrate what we have learned from our individual journey.  When directly experiencing hardship clarity isn’t always prominent when in the center of turmoil. Four of Swords is the aftermath of a hard emotional experience. One becomes more gentle and compassionate towards them self and others after moving through difficult chapters. There is a new learning how to navigate in a way that is in a greater harmony with ourselves in the world. We do not only learn by everything going well constantly. The depth of our character is refined by how we overcome and persevere the lowest of times. The Four of Swords depicts a lamb with a shining sun in the center of her forehead symbolizing a newfound strength through experiences of this human journey. There is a steady focus coming forth at this time, seeing what is no longer in alignment and the way one chooses to move forward.

 

At this time there is an opportunity to reflect on past experiences and clearly see what no longer works for us and what does. There is an evaluation of the direction of ones path and a clear vision that is aligned with ones heart to move in the direction that is true and not tainted by what friends, family, or society might otherwise say. We can see this as an exciting time that we have learned about ourselves in a way that opens our creative channels for forward movement in an honest direction of ones heart. This understanding blooms flowers in ones life that have not been tainted by what is expected from outside forces.  These answers have come from inside oneself. After each major experience or big change in ones life, we pause and reflect to integrate all we have learned up until now to make the next move as best we can. When we trust our own self to navigate in the most natural way, life is unfolding before us with great ease. When one does not take time to reflect or learn from the past we can continue cycles that are not helpful for our growth and expansion. Hasty decisions can be made that are premature when we do not take time to pause and reflect.

 

The lamb is aligned and strong in a silent way. She has contemplated her past movements and sees where she has erred and see where she has prospered. She is now ready for the next phase of her journey and is grounded in her movements. There is a maturing happening that wasn’t necessarily present before. At this time any plans that are made will be easily committed to as the weeds have been acknowledged and pulled out from the roots. Any aspects of life that were once unclear will now be seen in a spacious way that allows problems to be dissolved and new possibilities to fully expand.

The Hanged Man, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot the hanged man meaning and interpretation

The Hanged Man depicts a bat hanging from a branch. He wrapped himself within his wings and peers directly at the card reader with red, gleaming eyes….uhhh kinda creepy right? Something mysterious…a secret perhaps? Something is being held within, being protected instead of let go. Bats swooping into our lives indicate death of egocentric aspects of self, major transitions, sensitivity to seeing the unseen, and releasing major burdens that have been carried for ages. The bat hangs in the dark, however, this darkness fades into the light. As we move beyond limitation and darkness we expand into the greatness we already are. Our light was simply covered up by imagined illusion.

 

The Hanged Man can represent your own suspension in life. What are you “hanging” onto that is in the dark? What aspects of you are being perceived now that are ready to be let go of and take flight? This is how the bat flies, he must let go of the branch in order to gain momentum and fly. He cannot fly from pushing off the ground. This card might be about your darkness or perhaps someone close to you carrying a burden. The extremely heightened sensitivity a bat carries is the same as your own highly sensitive nature. You are sensitive within yourself and all of life because of your natural introspective nature. You feel life with invisible feelers, so a little whacky to some, but very normal for you. Whether or not this darkness is yours or someone close to you it is something that needs to be brought to the surface. This is an ancient wound that is present and this is a pivitol moment for change. You may either ignore and let it fester, providing a swamp-like and unenergized environment….or this old burden can be faced. Because of your sensitivity, if this imbalance is in you it will be released during this period. You can smell the putrid air of this and it must go. If this is regarding another being in your life, your sensitivity will be a catalyst assisting this damaging force to exit the body. Sometimes it can be our extreme sensitivity and seeing the unseen which gives permission to others to face what has been put off. The more aspects of darkness we have faced in ourselves the greater space we become to hold space as others go through hardship. It is a fire within that burns all delusion because it is seen as illusory. You see the most subtle darkness or hesitations within yourself, which in turn helps you see this in others and gives space for life to reveal the light that is already present.

 

Do not protect your fears or those of anyone else. When we protect our fears we are giving them more fuel to survive.  This is a dishonest way to live with oneself and highly self destructive. However, there will always be times when we don’t realize we are protecting something that is harming us. Thankfully, the bat is the symbol of a highly intuitive and wise one. So at this time you do have the full capacity to see all you need in order to shed some old skin. All is happening organically and in the natural unfolding of life. Life is always showing us what we need to see when we remain open to the mystery. We don’t know what will be, but when we remain open…the magic is swiftly and organically a guiding light. She shows us and we move in accordance with the natural flow.  The magic is hardwired in our system. In our blood, our tears, our joy….its in everything. The magic flows organically when we remain open to the unknown.

 

The hanged man tells us to go into the night. To feel the night air and the secrets that seem to be hidden in the quiet times of the night. Look at the moon, gaze at the stars. How do you feel when you do this? Does it change your perspective? Do you feel a Oneness with all that is? The Hanged man asks you to shift your perspective and ask where are you putting your energy? Ask yourself this sincerely. In all aspects of your life, where are you planting seeds? Is it at a job you hate? Or is it on a creative endeavor you love? Are you spending time with friends that ignite your fire? Or are you spending time with those who doubt your every move? Do not be afraid to distance yourself from the doubters and the nay sayers. Our life shifts radically when we allow those who support and love us to be in our sphere and when we simply leave those who don’t.

 

May our perception be clear and bright. May all seeming difficulties turn into mighty opportunities of growth. May all beings express their creativity and light in this world.

Temperance, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown temperance meaning and interpretation

Temperance: Moderation in action, thought, or feeling.

The Temperance card depicts a Heron with a wing extended out. Water droplets fall from her, merging with the fire below. The water is not putting out the fire. They are somehow in delicate harmony with each other. The background of the card is black/white horizontal stripes that symbolize a  grounded  and balanced energy. This card is a newfound balance within ones life instead of jumping to extremes. The Temperance card is in Sagittarius, a teacher of truth, passion, patience, and all that is beautiful.

There  were aspects of your being that have been in conflict with each other. In regards to your work, passions, and finding  balance  within your lifestyle. Somehow, wanting to blend what you are passionate about with your work and into your lifestyle. Now is a time that you have already found the balance or are discovering how to create this within your life. At one time you had no idea how it would be, now you see it is not only possible, but you are truly beginning or already living the life that you thought was only imaginary. As one strips away more of what is not in alignment with the heart, life responds to you celebrating in your strength to be with what is true. This is where the  magic  happens. Life is constantly responding to what is held within you and how you are moving as life. It is a constant mirror showing you different flavors and aspects of yourself.

This period for you is about balance, you have not been in sync with this harmony for some time. This is when there are no extreme attitudes, but consistent growth and change within you because you have been willing to look at what no longer works. There are times when we can stop expanding because there is a thought that thinks one is finished and has all the answers. This is a deathly stagnancy that creates dormancy and decay within the being. Its like sitting in a swamp thinking that somehow you will get clean. This card is the end of such thought. This balance depicts that you are walking gracefully, slowly, and with much vigilance on your path. This is opening up aspects of you that are delighted to emerge.

You are happy on your journey. You are moving with grace and ease in a direction that is gaining more momentum as you have clarity in yourself. You see how your work and projects were only on hold because of your own doing. Now you can continue your work at the pace you are going, only now the momentum is in a flow that hadn’t been ignited until now. You have made the decision that yes, this is what you would like to see in yourself and the magic of this vision will come to be. Your life experience, creative expression, and energized hard work is bringing everything together. Because you are at peace internally, it is now reflecting in all you do. Your loving patience for what you are working on is one of the biggest blessings on your side. When others are in a hurry to finish, you are joyously paying attention to the details. Far from completion, but the difference is you are enjoying the journey. As you see you are one with all that is and do not need a project to complete you  later. Because you see this, you know all the power is with you already.

Allow all to evolve in harmony with nature. You can choose to rush or not. The work you do can be done with great joy and ease, or stress and conflict. You choose how to focus your energy.

Nine of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot nine 9 of pentacles meaning and interpretation

Four white feathers form a diamond shape with nine pentacles inside. Pentacles represent the material aspects of life. Creativity, work, health, property, the “outer world” of ones inner life. The card depicts horizontal lines in the background, representing a grounded feeling within oneself and how one is moving as life. No separation is experienced now. There is a feeling of abundance and prosperity, not overly indulging, but a deep appreciation for what is. The profundity of the possibility that one is here makes all petty problems seen as dust in the wind. This gratitude overwhelms the being and allows for natural movement in one to flow in accordance with the divine.

The divine that is magnificently experienced as you.

 

There is a quiet knowing within you that feels the way in which you are moving is the same movement as God moving inside you. This card represents the merging of life as one where all is connecting. You are not living a double life, or if you are, this is coming to an end. Many aspects of you have fallen away, work that could no longer serve your heart. You are aligning more deeply with what feels natural for you. Nine of Pentacles indicates that you have come to a completion of a project and are enjoying the fruits of this labor.  You have enough momentum underway that now you have a unique balance of work and play. There is a confidence here that is unwavering, you know what wishes to move through you in your work and you will continue this way. Although this is an abundant period, you also know there will be low seasons. You are deeply committed to your work and will endure the ebbs and flows. Your reliance is from God/Source and nothing else from this world which can be attained or lost.

 

This card can also depict that you are working consistently and diligently on a project that will come into full physical form. However, there is still a long stretch to go. You are working with love and discipline, you will surely be fulfilled with this project. There is no way it will fail, this vision that comes from within is the vision God/Spirit has planted inside. You have released all other visions and plans that did not feel one with spirit. There is a deep felt movement of grace at this time. As if the wind is moving you and all of life with more ease than you have ever felt. This is because of your trust in all that is. Perception is everything. As you feel the immense beauty of life, you are always met with this beauty in return.

 

Nine of Pentacles regards health. Perhaps your overall wellbeing and health are overflowing with radiant and abundant energy right now. If that is the case….obviously that is fantastic. Your physical body is vibrant and you feel solid with how you have been treating yourself. The exercise, and food you allow in your body are in agreement with what you need. Nine of Pentacles can also be asking, is there something you would like to stay away from? Is there a habit like smoking or drinking that you have allowed to creep into your life and expand over time? Are you eating foods that deplete your energy? Now you have all the power with you to change things that no longer serve you in this realm. When your body is being taken care of everyday you are naturally moving much lighter and with ease. This time will be of major transformation in the body and also your work environment. Grace is sweeping through your house and bringing a beautiful balance within many layers of your life. Abundance and magic of life is deeply recognized and felt. There is an unending well of a power within that is naturally wiping away all that isn’t working anymore. What was once a struggle for you to change is now seen with clarity and swift changes are being made without much effort.

Wheel of Fortune, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Wild Unknown Tarot Wheel of Fortune Meaning and Interpretation

The Wheel of fortune looks quite chaotic in this scene, but if we look closer we can see that this wild web is weaved with a greater harmony. A rainbow colored stream of light is gracing all the madness perceived. Perched atop a branch is an owl peering a the card holder. She is a reminder of the awareness we are. The wise owl sits perched within the unknown realm of the dark night. The sun beams at the bottom of the card depicting the necessary aspects of light and dark we must experience.

 

The Owl sees and feels all of life in the mysterious night. The unknown does not frighten her.  She trusts, flying through the darkness with unwavering gratitude. The night is not something to be shunned away or frightened of. The dark of the unknown is stepping into the vastness of our inmost being. It is not only the light which we want, it is the complete acceptance of all that arises within our being. This owl is the awareness that you are, seeing everything that is occurring. She sees all which is in physical reality and also feels the subtle energies at play. This one sees and feels the dance of life from a pure and neutral space. This is our original source of seeing beyond the minds comments and feelings. The owl is a reminder to trust this one. The one that is beyond what is fleeting in this life. She says, stay here. Stay here. and when you keep seeing that which is false, those things will naturally fall to the way side because your heart is merged here, as truth.

 

This globe the wise one is perched on seems to be a mad mess of chaotic splendor. The owl seems to be unaffected with all that is occurring. She is simply present with what is happening. There is a feeling that the chaos is happening in some kind of perfect harmony. As if everything that is happening is necessary. Do we see this in our own life? Can we connect the dots as we look at our life and see where we are now? Can we see how the crazy ups, downs, and all arounds have only stripped us away of illusion and false identity? Can we see how all our experiences are only for the greater good leaving us with a clean spirit? Can we see how the darkness and the light play out in our lives are not higher or lower than each other but equally crucial to experience in this human form? Do we see how our authentic openness to life brings exactly what we need to evolve past our limitations? All is occurring divinely in the chaotic traffic of life. Can we see how lifes wheel of fortune is not in the things we acquire or accomplish in the physical realm, but the self that is ever present within us? This is the unchanging awareness that we all are. This is the true gold of our fortune. To discover our infinite nature that is indestructible. As we rest in this magnificent space all of life is unfolding in divine perfection. It doesn’t matter how ugly or pretty it looks on the “outside” you and only you know what you are experiencing. This is the only one that matters and this is what the Wheel of Fortune is showing you. As you stay here in truth, all is unfolding in perfection. Trust completely.

 

Lets be honest. Are we dipping are toes into The Wild Unknown? What does this serve? Who does this serve. This serves the limited version of who you think you are, thats it. It is not the entirety of your being. Your being is already in the water….the limitation comes in when you believe the BS your mind has to say. Yes you heard me you are already in. So those thoughts that say “You aren’t there yet, and you need to do this, this, and this first.” Not true. You are already free you just gotta start dancing. The Wheel of Fortune is revealing that as wild, crazy, painful, happy, solemn, or whatever is happening all is revealing more beauty and more love within you. So those toes that you think are dipping in? Can you see how you are already in, already here? And those toes you thought were only grazing in The Wild Unknown have already been gobbled up and swallowed whole? Here you are.

Eight of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot eight 8 of wands meaning and interpretation

Eight of Wands depicts a circle of wands touching at the center, with a rainbow lightning bolt striking from the top. This jolt of energy has been waiting to burst forth. A creative project that has been marinating is ready to be reengaged and come to a completion. This card can also be for a new project coming forth with no distractions present. Only focus with passion is felt at this time. There is a balance here with structured action and creative raw ideas that are working simultaneously for a vision to fully bloom. The opportunity of time and creative flow is strong now.

This is not the time to allow doubt or fear creep in.

What is it that has been stirring inside ready to come forth? What project has been within that is now ready to come into being? With all the strong energy surrounding the card there are no excuses or setbacks now to complete this project. Since there is powerful energy within you now, it is wise not to grab onto another great idea to start something new. The original vision that has been brewing has cultivated many pieces of the recipe to be fully cooked now. Allow it to pour out fully with love and focus to see the magic that arises. You know this creative magic inside that has been felt.

Now it’s time to gather resources that you presently have to allow full fruition of this vision to take place.

The only thing that can hinder this progress is doubt. Many beings will allow excuses of not enough resources, money, or time to get in the way of a vision. If you think something is in your way, then the experience of life will reflect your limited belief system. If you know deeply that you have all that you need to complete a vision, life will reflect back to you this way of seeing. Any challenges which arise are only showing you where you hold doubt or fear in your heart. Allow the challenges to come and move through them. This will expand you with more trust in yourself to complete what wishes to move through. Tremendous energy is present now and you may have many ideas, possibly not sure where to begin or where to continue with your vision. Give yourself the time and space to breath and move in your naturalness, this is always moving you in accordance with your heart.

Nothing needs to be rushed and all will occur in divine timing. Trust and give yourself to life to move you in this stream with grace and ease. All power, energy, and resources are on your side.

The High Priestess, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot the high priestess meaning and interpretation

The High Priestess is pure presence, before light and dark emerge. She knows all is spirit and is not chained by earthly matters. She plays creatively knowing her time on earth is temporary and lives the miracle fully. She allows the mystery to dance wildly as she remains untouched. Guided only by pure intuition and not tainted by mind. Her strength comes from the unending well of love that she knows all beings are made of. She embodies the universe entirely never shunning away anything that arises within her field. She knows all that she experiences is only for truth to be seen and love to be shared. She appears when one is in the fullness of being, no fear is present. All that is seen is a playground of inspiration and love.

A fear that was smaller than a grain of sand had been perceivably over powering the being. It is now finished, dust in the wind. The High Priestess emerges when fear vanishes. What is left is pure inspiration to be, unhindered and free from the binds of the monkey mind. This naturalness leaves a freedom that blooms a wisdom inside that pierces through the veil of illusion. An immense creativity that has always been present within is now bursting forth with no commentary from the mind. The High Priestess moves majestically with the freedom which has always been. She is now witnessing creative expression moving wildly from her. She now sees she had stopped herself from fully exploring. This is a simple freedom that spreads like wildfire in her wake. She is alive and inspired, and all who encounter her will drink this sweet nectar in her wake.

The High Priestess is only interested in being as she is. All else is an imagined illusion.  She knows when she rests as she is, the whole world moves in divine perfection. She does not move in anxiety or fear because she knows whatever she does in these states are not original to her nature. She moves with pure intuition and love with all that she does, not moving out of haste. She waits to truly make a move until it is completely clear that spirit wishes her to move in a specific direction. The High Priestess knows that all which occurs can only be the divine moving, therefore she trusts fully, without doubt.

The Tower, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot the tower meaning and interpretation

This is a time that cannot be prepared for. A crumbling of who you think you are based on false ideas which have led to actions unaligned with spirit. This can be absolutely terrifying and exciting all at the same time. There is an internal unraveling of stagnant remnants one has given power to. These stagnant energies have been held tightly as an escape to fully allow oneself to bloom into full creative potential that is bursting inside. This time can be a period of extreme discomfort and havoc within oneself as you see it is the end of the road with what is familiar. The Wild Unknown cannot be embraced without a complete breakdown of the familiar.

To taste our own nectar we must leave all that we think we know, we must embrace that which is unseen.

 

Although one may try to have life in order, one will see that life itself is not something to be grasped in this way. Life cannot be grasped in this way. The more one tries to have order and perfection in ones life the more life will push back until we relax into the unknown. Exciting for some and complete chaos for another. The Tower card is the destruction of false foundations one has built an empire on. This life is only here to expose more love inside and to move in ways which are more true. As this destruction occurs it is the destruction that brings life to the authentic self. It is only grace that causes this hell to burn a fire to all that you are not. This is not a time to fear, but a time to truly celebrate what wishes to break free from false beliefs and actions. Allow this fire to burn all that you are not to make a space inside where love eradicates all fear. Your spirit is being cleansed by Grace.

 

As this transition occurs many insecurities and fears will arise. Allow all that is arising to be fully felt, allow the energy to arise, so it can leave the body. This is not a time to resist the darkness which arises. It is a time to feel the depth of the darkness which is present so one can fully release it. Our being encompasses all of existence, dark and light cannot be separated. One is not higher than the other for they both are required for us to be here. We could never be thankful for the contrast of the light if we cannot sit with our own darkness. We allow the darkness to move as we are present with it, acknowledging its existence within us and allowing it to move. This is when we allow fear to bubble to the surface and truly allow it to leave. Ignoring this aspect of self only allows it to grow stronger. This card is of Truth. This is the full allowance of honesty with oneself to be free of any bondage that still lingers. Our sense of security can never arise from a false life built for oneself. Anything outside of oneself will never give true security. True security can only be that of Self which needs no external world to validate its existence. One can create many false worlds within ones lifetime that seem to create some form of stability, but until we connect with the core of our nature there will never be a true satisfaction in ones life. As we let go of all we think we know we invite the deepest parts of ourself once hidden to come into being.

 

Allow all the discomfort of this time to be as it is. Even go as far as inviting it in. This will be strengthening and move the pain and discomfort out to let you be as you are before any false illusions of life were created.

Mother of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot mother of pentacles meaning and interpretation

The Mother of Pentacles gives a feeling of calm and nurturing. Depicted is a momma dear and her fawn nestled in the comfort and trust. The Mother of Pentacles is resting laying down and simultaneously completely alert with an air of serenity. Earthly colors of pale green and blue behind her are symbolizing her connection to the physical world. The light purple at the bottom of the card symbolizes her connection with spirit and how she moves intuitively in the physical world. She does not worry about her young because she knows that life will always care for her and her young. This relaxation that she feels in life is what allows her to move with great trust and ease. The Mother of Pentacles asks us to embody a relaxation in our life that allows us to move like water. As this relaxation is discovered we feel life is flowing with pure Grace supporting us.

 

The trust that is felt from this card is clear. Are we trusting life as we walk our path? Do we truly feel we are exactly where we need to be? Is there a feeling that we are in alignment with our heart and life or do we feel we are going against ourself in some way? This is a time to contemplate and ask, am I fooling myself being at this job or place that doesn’t serve my heart? Or am I walking with spirit completely and not looking back? When we truly start swimming in the stream that life always has available for us we see how the other way we were living was a contracted state, there is no leaving this stream. For the ones who are conflicted in how they are living, this is the time to ask why? Is it too scary to do something that makes your heart happy? Are you not allowing the love to flow from you where you see a vision? Are you wondering about your job security and what your family or friends may think? The Mother of Pentacles says trust. Trust your hearts wishes that have been stifled. One will never know how things could be if we don’t take a leap of faith. Can we agree on one thing? It is a miracle that we are here, is it not? If one takes this miracle attitude with each decision made from the heart, we will see how all things are possible. Only a thought of fear creates a separation that impedes us from doing anything. This is paralyzing for any being and it is why we don’t leave old situations for ones that serve the greatest good. At the end of the day we must ask are we siding with fear or are we listening to the calling of our heart? Life supports us when we listen to our heart. Life wreaks havoc when we go against ourselves. Can we see that? Trust. Trust your inner visions and allow them to flow without hinderance.

 

One pentacle is directly above the mother deers head. Pentacles represents earthly and material aspects of life. There is an illusion that if we follow our heart we won’t have any material security. This is an illusion that can quickly be seen through when we start opening ourselves to our natural hearts expression to unfold. If you believe that you are secure in a job or place now which doesn’t serve the heart you are only opening yourself enough to be secure in that place. When you open yourself to do what you truly wish to do you are allowing yourself to trust in the miracle of life that is far more secure than anything that is going against your heart. If one is suffering and in pain at a place of work how is that secure in anyway? This shows us that we are not caring about our own well being and are putting a financial security above happiness. We must ask ourself what is more important, our joy? Or a false sense of security in a job or situation that doesn’t serve our heart?

We must be courageous and take a leap of faith with what feels aligned inside.

Ten of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot ten 10 of swords meaning and interpretation

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

 

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

 

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

Seven of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

the wild unknown tarot seven 7 of wands meaning and interpretation

One black wand burning a bright light within the darkness. Six wands part ways for one flame to burn through all adversity. Seven of Wands reminds us who we are and to allow ourselves fully to express naturally what we love to do. Pure self expression, without shying away. Are we backing down from our power, or are we fueling the fire that keeps us vibrant and alive?

 

Seven of Wands is showing us when everyone is saying no to our dreams and visions that we must stand firm in truth. The inspiration that comes from our heart is a pure expression of the divine. This creativity shows up in infinite forms. Many times when we are honoring our path there will be many who try to discourage and condemn the process. The Seven of Wands is a reminder to stay with the truth of our heart against all odds and to not waver because of silly opinions. No one has lived as you. You are the only one who can feel deeply the ways in which you wish to move and navigate freely as life. There are times for earth shattering convictions to stand for our naturalness and will not waver for anyone who tries to convince us otherwise. We must remember the ones who judge our path are the ones who maybe aren’t happy with their own. Freedom to be completely natural and do what one loves fully scares many. The freedom to carve a different path is ours to discover and explore. If one judgement or criticism scares us, what does that say about our true inner strength? The Seven of Wands says to deny those who oppose how your heart wishes to move.

 

How we feel in this very moment is everything. If we are pining for a better tomorrow or better future we will always be putting our life in the hands of an imagined state of joy. When we relax into the moment, not wait for another moment to relax into….we see there is an immediate content and joy here. When this relaxation in now is felt, we start living a miraculous life. What happens here is there is a naturalness in all movement. We stop thinking so hard about what we should do with our life and relax into present moment creativity. This springs forth the most raw and authentic unfolding which doesn’t need to be planned or strategically executed. The stream of life is already flowing. All we have to do is drop in and start swimming. When we are out of this stream of life we are heavy and constricted where no inspiration can flow. The Seven of Wands says burn bright and stay with this power that is felt inside. This light which burns will always guide us. This light is Grace. Grace moves all that is here. This is why we don’t have to worry or be frightened. We can be as we are.

 

Sometimes we need courage to swim in the stream of our own heart. This stream of our heart is the same as the life that we think is happening around us. It is simply reflecting our heart. We can be discouraged by others words and opinions. But we must remember no one absolutely no one is discouraging us. When we accept what others say about our life it is only our own thoughts, fears, and doubts about ourself that are coming into physical form. Life is showing us what we see and feel within. So if someone is against how we are living and this has a strong impact, it is because we are still holding judgement towards ourself. Other times our freedom threatens the box another judging us has been living in. They try to control us because they themselves feel conflicted. Courage is needed for the beginning leap of faith to do what feels intuitive and natural for us. However, once we see that the struggle, pain, and conflict is only a ghost we see how swimming in this stream becomes fun. As we expand into this trust resistance falls away as we swim.

No one needs to understand anything about you. The Six of Wands means you have left the entrapments of judgements and fears, showing you to fly, play, and enjoy the ride. You are free of seriousness and are moving playfully as you explore the mystery.
