What Could You Do With Knowing?

This week, there’s so much going on, what do could you do with knowing about, in advance? Getting a heads up can be beneficial. It gives you time to think, adjust and adapt, long before the rolling stone that is life comes and tries to knock you sideways.  Knowing what energy coat we need to wear, can be helpful. We can all look out of the window and work out if we want shorts on, or a long heavy skirt, trousers… whatever. We can all make that decision because we can see the effects outside already. Energies aren’t that obvious, though they’re as transparent as the wind, they can be just as hurtful and energy-zapping. Let’s take a peek at the energies for this coming week, and get our “heads up”; knowing is better than not, isn’t it? What might be helpful knowing? Nine of Arrows ~ Dedication. I smiled…

Wildwood : Spring Equinox

Spring has officially sprung and even the Wildwood is sharing the warm spark of the season. What will spark in your mind, now that the weather is warm enough for fleece, jumpers & body warmers? Oh, whilst I love the Winter and snuggling up in front of the log burner, a Tarot deck (or blog) to hand, and a big soft bed to curl up in when it’s time to sleep, I too love the warm of the spring and the summer that follows! I love the banks of yellow daffodils in the spring time too, even if it does mean a busy time for me as a gardener. But that’s okay, I love the rewards around the Autumn Equinox and getting physically up close and one with nature. But between now and then, it’s time to get the spark of muse going and see what makes you get out…

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…

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…

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…

Wildwood Sparks : Ace of Bows

Sparks fly from the Ace of Bows today as it comes out to join us and I wonder if we will see any more in the next few days? It’s a Sunday, usually a day of rest, right? Not always. In my life, I have more than enough to cater and pander to, being the mother of three children, one of whom arrived only eight weeks ago. So why on earth did I take on more responsibility last year? The answer I feel is simple: I’m a woman, my own person. I’m not just a mother, bottle washer (and yes, I’ve been doing a lot of that of late and I will be for a good while to come!), chef, laundry-maid, dog-walker… the list is endless but I still need to do something for me, ya know? I have my own views, my own understanding of things. I don’t always…

The Blog Returns : With a Change

This is my return and first blog post in about seven weeks, due to the arrival of my very gorgeous and ever-changing, baby girl on the 23rd of February! During the last seven weeks, I think I’ve pretty much gone through every emotion there is out there: Fear, anxiety, tiredness, anger, grief, mourning, happiness and the jealousy that comes with comparing myself to other mums with three kids. Was I as good as them? What about other Tarot Readers? Did I still “have it”? Should I return now, or wait? I managed to get some time a few weeks ago to start preparing the blog for a come back, and I thought and pondered about what I would do and when. Those questions above made me think for most of the Easter Weekend and here is what I’ve decided. I won’t be blogging every day, not yet. I’m going to…

Wildwood Answers: 30 Day Challenge ~ Day 24

I think I’m going to keep going through the weekend with this little challenge: it’s so close to the end now and the questions that are coming up are just great! Today’s question is this: How accurate do you believe your readings are (or, do they accurately convey messages from spirits/deity)? The best people to answer this question, are those that have had a reading from me. I have a testimonials page (which reminds me, must get that updated this weekend with feedback from the latter part of 2012) where I publish the feedback I receive where I’ve been given permission to publish the comments. I believe that every reading I have done or will ever do, comes from something greater. The question is, are you ready to receive the message, take heed and make any necessary changes? There’s no point, in my mind, of asking someone their advise, paying…

Wildwood Answers: The 30 Day Tarot Challenge ~ Day 2

Carrying on from yesterday’s post in the Tarot Challenge, we encounter the second question in the list: What was your first deck and why/how did you get it? I answered that yesterday, with explaining how I’d come into the Tarot. So I shan’t tell you it again. What I shall do is share with you how I got the second deck I ever owned. Remember, I married in 2002, so this happens 3 years later. It is the Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti. I was at the TABI Tarot Conference in 2005 and I met a lot of people I’d discussed the Tarot with on-line. One of these ladies was Rashunda Tramble. She’d been given the mass-produced Gilded Tarot, but didn’t like it. She wanted to do a swap, but I had nothing to swap it with. She kindly gave me a list of decks she would like, so off…

Wildwood CotD : Ace of Cups & Major #6 ~ Forest Lovers

I realise with horror I didn’t write-up yesterday’s Card of the Day, so I’ll do both in today’s post. Yesterday, was the 6th Major card, The Forest Lovers. Today, the Ace of Cups joins us and both convey messages individually and together that I so need to hear. Yesterday I feel was a reminder to be gentle with myself and to love myself. I’ve not been great at doing that of late, pregnant or not, this cold just won’t shift and there’s not much I can take for it either, given my current medical state. It’s also a reminder to be gentle with others around you. The Internet is great for certain things, but it also has a nasty, cold side that can leave people in a rather bruised state. How we might word things when we can add a soft voice to them may look harsh when written out…
