Wildwood Answers: 30 Day Challenge ~ Day 12

We approach the half way mark in the 30 Day Challenge from Ree at 78 Keys and the Wildwood is going to struggle to come to terms with this one. Here’s the question: Have you ever created your own spread? If so, how effective is it? (Feel free to show the spread.)

Card of the Day ~ Green Woman
Major #3 ~ The Green Woman
Card of the Day

The answer is “Yes” and the biggest one was a pyramid, layers for which a client had to work through to get to their goal. I think I used about 30 cards to do it? It was really HUGE and rather off the cuff, so I can’t show it here. To be honest, I am not that great at sitting down and coming up with spreads, like Sharon, Chloe or Sara: Despite being Pisces I just don’t think that way and only come up with spreads when I need  them. Otherwise, my mind tends to be a blank piece of paper.

How might I over-come this obstacle? There are several muses within The Wildwood Tarot that I can call upon for help.

One of the great muses in any deck is The Empress, and for whom the Wildwood puts forth The Green Woman. Within the Wheel of the Year, she and The Green Man sit at Mid-Summer, when it’s all warm, bright and things are green. She gives and receives the natural flow of life, she’ll point you in the right direction, but she’ll ensure that you know you’re doing it for yourself, not her. That’s more of a father figure statement.

She’s also a protector, especially of the brew that is in that cauldron and a teacher, reminding us to learn, to nurture. From that perspective, we can create anything that we want, need or desire. The question then changes to: How will it do that?

That’s another question for another day, but if you’d like some help in working out which way to go next, you can book your time with here.

  1. Ooh… I usually start with a question and then try to work out the best way to explore it via a spread. My spreads tend to be on the lengthy side so I’ve recently been making an effort to make them smaller. I’ve a few things I want to explore but I also want to get cracking, what with it being the New Year and all that 🙂

    I love it that you chose The Green Woman! Like you I see her cauldron as a symbol of all the possibilities available to us 🙂 Interesting that you chose the number three… sometimes there’s nothing better than a three card spread!

    1. You know, that’s how I create most of mine: On the hoof, in a session, answering the question(s) that the client / querent has 🙂

      And yes, sometimes a 3 card spread is the best and simplest way to approach things 🙂
