Wildwood: 13th February 2014 : Chill

The Tarot does have a sense of humour and today is a classic example. When all around you are losing their heads, hunker down and chill out; endure the storm. It’s as easy as breathing to get frustrated with life, the people in it, family, work, yourself. It’s totally understandable that as a result, you get frustrated with yourself too. Using the Wildwood Tarot app, I pulled these cards using The Pathway Spread before I’d even set a foot out of bed. The first card up was The Seer; mysterious, knowing, psychic. She was / is my question. What does she say to you? What question do you have deep within that you’d love to know the answer to? You already know what you want to ask, but perhaps you don’t want to give that question a voice of its own quite yet. Action to avoid shows us the indelible Goat, with a commonly felt keyword during this mercury retrograde; frustration. Are you trying to do much? Are you getting nowhere? Have you too much mentally going on? Do you feel as though you’re free-falling or missing the mark? The advice from the Tarot is simple: avoid that which is…

Wildwood : Weekend vLog & Decisions

The weekend is nigh and I slide under the barrier for posting any cards beyond the Blog Hop this week as if I were scoring in a rounders / baseball game. There’s a decision to be made but how swiftly do I make this said, decision? The vLog will do most of the talking, but here are the three cards. I hope that WordPress does what I want it to do with the graphics, but whilst I babble on, here’s my written thoughts on it.   King of Arrows is a character that’s direct, straight to the point, swift, dangerous. He strikes quickly and accurately, without discrimination. Whatever he’s representing for these next two days, it’s going to be swiftly and directly. The Two of Arrows is about making a decision, though her bow certainly does not appear to be broken under her feet. She’s weighing something up, but it’s not adding up. Maybe that’s what is causing her the issue and why she’s got the blindfold on, to avoid distractions. The Eight of Vessels is about rebirth, getting rid of the emotions that we no longer want, letting them return to the river from which they came. This week,…

Wildwood : 30th Jan 2014 ~ Midweek Story Board ~ Adapt to Duty

I’m back on schedule this week after a not very pleasant past seven days. However, I’m reminded to love myself, adapt and when the time comes, start again. What do these cards say for you? The Fools Wisdom this week was Duty, to embrace it with love and enthusiasm. The thing with Duty is that it can drain you, running around from pillar to post, back and forth.                   The cards this week remind me to love myself. The Lovers are about loving others. Who support you whilst you carry on your obligations, your duties? Remember to love them too. The Otter is an adaptable being, living out of and in the water as the need fits. The otter is playful and is certainly a being that looks after itself first. If it wants a bath, it goes and takes one, playing as it goes. It eats when it wants, when it’s able to catch its food. It’s also skittish, hard to see and as quick as lightening! The Ace of Stones, with the phrase, “The Foundation of Life” is to me, an indicator to start over again. What is it that’s…

Wildwood : 9th Jan ’14 ~ Midweek Story Board ~ vBlog

Welcome to the first midweek story board of 2014 and the first ever vBlog of the story board! Enjoy but don’t move, it’s a really quick video! 9th Jan 2014 Midweek Story Board vBlog And just in case like me, you’re nervous about viewing it, here are the cards in question.               These cards make me wonder what emotions I need to get rid of this week. Mostly the negative, self-destructing ones are going to be the ones we all want to get rid of, but what do they say to you? Change before you’re forced to? Letting go of that which threaten to drown us comes to mind, embracing what we are and cooking up things that we want to achieve in that magic cauldron of The Green Woman’s also come to mind. If we don’t want to be bitter and horrible and a remnant of the past (I sometimes catch myself turning into someone I don’t want to be, someone who reminds me of both my god-awful grandmothers!) we need to change and let go of the stuff that no longer serves us. The middle-card here is so understated, some might over-look…
