Wildwood COTD : Ace of Vessels

Today, on this glorious Tuesday, we have the Ace of Vessels arrive to join us. Aces are the new beginnings in the Tarot and since this is Vessels, it indicates all sorts of new emotional states, from possible new friendships to a new angle of friendship and or business.

Ace of Vessels ~ The Waters of Life

As we can see from the card, everyone needs to drink from the waters of life. The waters flow from the large bowl at the top of the structure and cascade down. The Queen of Arrows, who we met the other day, swims about gracefully, using the element to float upon. The deer that joins her as a small boat that is shaped like a half-moon floats on by. He is not bothered by the presence of either one.

In the background, behind the water fall, it looks like a large yew tree stands guard and offers shade as well as protection.

This card is a reminder that we are all swayed by our emotions, no matter who or what we are. It’s primeval. The powers of reason, intellect and science have all but been explained, but the need to drive onwards, to desire and explore, to be curious is still debated.

The card for me, asks that we allow things to begin again, to start up, to grow. Like this pool, our emotions need to be harnessed in order to be constructive, healthy, creative and loving. Leaving them unattended could cause us to become detached. Letting them rule us can cause us to become irrational and destructive to our self and others. Which way will you swim today?

If you’re already detached, breathing in deep lung-full of air and grounding yourself will help. If you’re not sure and are somewhat unsure, be brave and venture forth and try. You will never know if you do not try. And you may not get another chance such as this again.

    Like the way you have said that our emotions “need to be harnessed in order to be constructive,, ,, ,,” etc.
    Also think that we need to be at the same time… ‘aware of’ … & also to learn how, to respond in the right way that is needed at the time to… the emotions of others as well.
