As promised from my Tarot Blog Hop Post, here’s The Wildwood advising me for the coming year, using the Samhain Tarot spread.
This Samhain Tarot Spread comes courtesy of Theresa Mills in the Wildwood Tarot Study Group on Facebook and the Aeclectic Tarot site. As a quick reminder, here’s the spread from my Blog Hop. I’ve put the title of each card that’s come up in that position.
1. Autumn Yield (what can be used) – Ace of Vessels
2. Reserve stock (what can be put aside) – Major 1 – The Shaman
3. Winter ordeal (for what to prepare to) – Major 3 – The Green Woman
4. Passage between the worlds (new paths & methods) – Four of Stones
5. The gifts of Samhain (gifts of the new tide) – Seven of Stones
6. Mysterious meeting (some unexpected encounters) – King of Bows
7. What to say goodbye to… – Four of Vessels
8. What to remember… – Three of Stones
9. Results/conclusion – Two of Stones
Lets take the first three. 1. Autumn Yield (what can be used) – Ace of Vessels, 2. Reserve stock (what can be put aside) – Major 1 – The Shaman, 3. Winter ordeal (for what to prepare to) – Major 3 – The Green Woman
On a personal front, these three say to me that I can and ought to begin again, emotionally. I’ve undergone a lot of change this year, it’s time to start over again, I don’t need to be in control and “make the magic” happen, what I need to prepare for is being the mother and nurture the life I’ve given. On the business front,come to the business with a new sense of emotional love, don’t try to control everything or every aspect, you can’t do it alone. Nurture the business and the ideas that you have, let them surface when they’re ready, but hauld yer whest until they’re ready.
The next three are just as interesting! 4. Passage between the worlds (new paths & methods) – Four of Stones, 5. The gifts of Samhain (gifts of the new tide) – Seven of Stones, 6. Mysterious meeting (some unexpected encounters) – King of Bows.
Personally, I need to take time out and protect myself, perhaps physically (psychically comes to mind here too) whilst finding time to meditate and heal thyself (and put to bed the niggling current medical condition I’m suffering from) but be prepared to meet someone fiery! (Too late, already met and married him!) On the business front, take things slowly, learn to think about things before speaking and acting and if someone has a good idea, give credit where credit is due. Perhaps that mysterious meeting gives me an insight into other aspects I can take the business during 2014.
The last three cards aren’t looking so hot, more specifically the last card,but let’s get on with it. 7. What to say goodbye to… – Four of Vessels, 8. What to remember… – Three of Stones, 9. Results/conclusion – Two of Stones.
Personally (and business wise!) if the Wildwood Tarot thinks that I have been bored this year, it had better think again. Seriously, I’ve not stopped with one thing or another! Though I have been bored with the lack of time to do the things I have wanted to do, business wise. What I need to remember on both fronts is to be creative, to tap into my muse and take the time out to connect with the earth and the Woodlands again. The Results will be that this is a year of standing my ground (personally and business wise) and keeping my boundaries. It will be a challenge to balance both the major aspects of my life, but something that can be done.
This past Pagan Year I’ve met some fantastic fellow Witches and Tarot Readers, some are just starting out on their Tarot Journey (or out of the broom closet Witch-wise themselves) but they’re with me to connect with as and when we need each other. The internet, being the wonderful useful thing it is, has bought together some great people. I hope to continue to learn more, meet new people and merge it all together in The Green Woman’s Cauldron.
That’s me for this Samhain Tarot Spread post. I hope you’ve enjoyed it and it’s given you something more of an insight into how I read the Tarot. You know where to book a reading with me, right here. If you’d perhaps like to leave a comment, please feel free – I love comments 🙂
