Wildwood : Wake Me Up

It’s time to get something new under way. The winter nights are drawing in, so what’s going to wake you up and keep you entertained? Wake Me Up by Evanescence sprung to my mind as soon as I saw this card.  Just because the nights are drawing in, going out and spending time outdoors is often curtailed by the poor weather. The desire to stay in and be warm , overtakes us. But whilst you sit down and enjoy the comforts of home, what are you going to do to keep your brain awake? The Ace of Bows came up from The Wildwood and I immediately thought, engage your brain! What about starting a new hobby? Or picking up one you had last year? How about doing a small correspondence course on a subject that you’ve been wanting to do? I’ve recently picked back up the astrology correspondence course I…

Wildwood : Dealing With Mercury

Mercury is retrograde. Often, it’s an excuse to blame the Cosmos for poor communications, can the Wildwood help in this regard? I asked The Wildwood, What do I need to know about this Mercury Retrograde? So using three cards, I enquired as to what will help this week, what will not help and some further advice. The first card up is the King of Bows, he’s here to help and to remind me that getting to the top of a pile is tough, staying there is tougher. But I don’t have to stay at the top. I have permission to make my point, to articulate and use the passion within, but I do not have to always be the one at the top. The middle card is what won’t help this week. The King is a reminder to not do things alone. The Wolf can call on his friends, but…

Wildwood : Follow the Path

Path working is hard work and taking Tarot advice as you walk along life’s winding road, can be a good thing. If you want to know, ask. If you don’t want to know, avoid asking. This week, I’ve taken the Pathway Spread that the deck comes with to ask: What do I need to know this week? As usual, the Wildwood has been somewhat direct. This deck never misses its mark. (It never misses me and hits the wall) What’s the issue, dear?! Three of Arrows ~ Jealousy Emotions may be tense this coming week. Now, I know that there’s a few eclipses to occur and that things are messed up, hung up and delayed in a meandering loop until around the tenth of October. Until then, due to the angst of not being able to drive things forward, there may be feelings of resentment that can be destructive. This…

Wildwood : Bridge The Gap

This week, we’re going to bridge the gap for the Story Board. Katie at my Tarot group came up with this gem about a year ago. We call it “The Bridge Spread” and here’s how it works. We all find ourselves at a place where we need to build a bridge, but how?! Working out where you’re coming from, where you want to be, then working out how to connect the two, can help! This week, I asked: What do I need to build a bridge over? Using The Wildwood app, I pulled these three cards. The card on the left is the Starting Point and this week, we have the Four of Vessels. I’m not bored, but I am in a cycle of wasted energy. Like most people in England’s green and pleasant land, there are thousands of parents waiting for the kids to go back to school. For…

Wildwood : Back To Life

Back to life and back to reality. Notice I didn’t say, normality. That, would be insane of me. I’m glad I took a few weeks of rest and chill out time with the family. I’d like more time away, but wouldn’t we all! But with the schools still being off on their summer break here in England (I believe Scotland have already returned to the classroom) there’s still a need for the backstop and the calling of Zen. (And I don’t mean the establishment I read Tarot at!) Since I’ve not posted for a while, I thought (and on request, really) that I’d post a mid-week story board. Using the Pathway Spread for this deck, here are the 3 cards that came up using the app on my mobile. With this spread, you read the centre card, the left, then finally the right. So, The Issue? What’s the issue, dear?…

Wildwood : Tribal Help Afterwards

This week, the Wildwood suggests that we ask for help with our responsibilities so we can move forward.   Certain things in life are sent to try us; being intruded upon in a violent way in the shape of a burglary, is certainly one for the “trying” category. I pulled these cards on the evening it happened, but I’ve been wondering why and how they fit and today, it came together, in my head at least. The Wolf calls upon his tribe to help and assist. I struggled with him in another reading not so long ago and it was the insight of another reader (Chloe) that helped me bring this reading into focus today. Yes, I could howl as to the injustice of it, but we got off lucky, nothing was stolen (this time) but the mess left behind leaves me wrangling with the insurance folks as to how…

18th August : Energies Around Us

Back from a great fresh air holiday, I investigate what energies are around myself and mine as we end one chapter and work out what comes next. It’s great to get away and relax. It becomes essential when you can’t see the woods for the trees. It also helps you refocus and reassess the energies around you. Are you heading in the right direction? Are you happy with where you are? If not, what are you going to do about it? We had some changing news upon our return home from a holiday. It was anticipated, but still, unwelcome. So, now that things are going to change (we will make it a change for the better!) I’ve asked the Tarot what energies are around us at the moment and these are the cards I drew.  On the left, we have the Three of Arrows. This is the positive energies around…

3rd June ~ Wildwood : Catch My Tail

It seems all I am doing at the moment, it trying to catch my tail. If I were a dog, I’d be dizzy. Actually, I’m dizzy most of the time anyway, running here, there, everywhere, doing this and that for one member of my family. Can the Tarot help or advise me how to slow down? I’m sure it’s June, but the weather has other ideas. Life, however, carries on at break-neck speed and I’m sure I need to catch my tail. I’m not sure what for though, but I am sure I need to! So, I pulled three Tarot cards to advise me on how to deal with this feeling of never-ending-dizziness. The first card up was the Ten of Vessels, with its keyword of Happiness. Be happy in the moment! I enjoyed a little dance with my baby girl today, Jimmy Somerville & Mighty Real came on the…

27th May ~ Wildwood : Half Term Know How

It’s Half Term and the kids are driving me potty already! Can the Tarot suggest a way for this hassled mum to cope? Kids are enough to turn your hair white, wear you out, drive you to drink and goodness what else! But they’re also incredible beings, proper little people and raising them is hard work. There’s the teaching them of manners, politeness, respect. There’s also the teaching of treating others as you’d like to be treated, helping around the house, how to fend for yourselves. And it doesn’t all get taught in one day. It’s a constant reminder, education. Not counting the school education, the answering of the “but why?” question countless times, numbers, walking, talking. It was suggested to me that the school system “breaks” a child and teaches any child bad skills, as children learn bad habits from their peers. We all learn bad habits and to…

15th May : Wildwood’s Advise from The Pathway

It’s been a wee while since I posted to the blog. Like everything else, life gets on top of you and things go ca-ca for a while. Hopefully, I’m back on top again with the help from The Wildwood and The Pathway Spread. To come back gently into the Wildwood’s therapeutic pools of knowledge, wisdom and calmness, I used The Pathway Spread via the Wildwood App (available in iStore & PlayStore) and pulled these cards. “What do I need to know now?” was the question I asked. The Issue is the Middle Card, the Two of Bows. It carries the keyword of decision. Do I carry on with the blog or do I put it down and put it on the back burner for a wee while? Well, the decision is fairly easy to make. I love talking and I love receiving comments, but I had no concept of how…
