Our deck of the week is the Shadowscapes Tarot by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law.



"Surrender to the fantastical world of your deepest dreams...where butterflies float upon shifting mists set aglow by the rising sun. A place where twisting branches arc across shimmering skies, willowy fairies dance on air, and tree spirits sing from a hallowed oak. Delve into the shadows of your dreams―and awaken to truth.
Weaving together Asian, Celtic, and fantasy styles of artwork, this breathtaking new Rider-Waite-Smith-based tarot deck by renowned artist Stephanie Pui-Mun Law is infused with universal symbols found in fairy tales, myths, and folklore from cultures around the world.
A companion guidebook presents the artist's evocative interpretations of each card's significance. It also features an introduction by award-winning tarot expert Barbara Moore that includes tarot basics, instructions for giving insightful readings, and practical spreads."


Card 1: The 8 of Pentacles



The Eight of Pentacles Tarot card indicates a time of hard work, commitment, diligence and dedication. The effort you put in will not be in vain as your hard work will pay off and lead to results, rewards or the accomplishment of your goals. 

When this Minor Arcana card appears in your Tarot reading, it indicates that you are methodically working towards something you want. It may seem boring, mundane or even relentless at the moment but you are on the brink of achieving great success, so don’t give up. The skills you are learning at the moment will stand to you later in life and you will come away from this experience not only with the inner wisdom you've gained but with a sense of pride and self-confidence from achieving your ambitions. 


Key words: New job, self-employment, building business, trade, reputation, craftsmanship, quality, master, expertise, hard work, commitment, dedication, concentration, success, accomplishment, ambition, confidence, financial security, results, rewards, achieving goals, attention to detail, productivity, scholarship, qualifications.





Card 2: The Wheel of Fortune





The Wheel of Fortune is generally an indicator of luck or destiny and it is a Major Arcana signifier of change. When the Wheel of Fortune appears upright in your Tarot reading big changes are coming. These changes should be for your greater good, but remember not all change is easy even if it’s leading you to your destiny! 

The upright Wheel of Fortune signals that the universe is working in your favor to help you reach your goals. Make sure you make the most of this time by focusing your intention on what you truly want! Know that the universe has a plan for you even if that plan is not clear to you at this point. The Wheel of Fortune also represents the ever-changing cycles we go through in life. We must learn to accept this process as part of living, even if it’s uncomfortable at times. 

Key words: Good luck, destiny, change, soulmates, decisive moments, cycles of life, fate, fortune, upheaval, chance

It's time for our Big Reveal! If you haven't done so, please go to the Wildly, Witch Facebook page and select your card. For those who have, let's do this! I'm cheating a little today, and only giving you the perspective of the authors of this deck for each card.

This week's featured deck is The Wildwood Tarot by Mark Ryan, John Matthews, and Wil Worthington.

From Amazon:


"The Wildwood Tarot will take you on a mystical journey for answers . . .  
Look to the heart of a primeval forest where deep ancestral wisdom lies to help make sense of your world today. Based on seasonal rhythms and ancient festivals, The Wildwood Tarot gift set draws inspiration from pre-Celtic mythology and shamanic mysteries. This stunning new tarot card deck introduces us to classic forest archetypes—including the Green Man and Woman, Archer, and Blasted Oak--and explains how to use them as a meditation system, divinatory oracle, or reference. Will Worthington's powerful pagan images connect us with a long-lost world that can help us make sense of our own. So step back in time and you'll better understand where your life’s path may lead."


Card 1: The 3 of Vessels (Cups)




From the authors:

Three of Vessels - Joy

Our journey through the Wildwood brings us to a clearing in which we see three great cranes, who open their wings in dance above three vessels – one green, one white and one golden.

From Druidic lore to tales told in the pagodas of Japan, cranes are associated with joy and happiness. Here too, in the Three of Vessels, we see joy and celebration of life!

Although the birds are all cranes, their cups are all different – now is the time to celebrate our differences.

* Where is there joy in your life?


* Do you CHOOSE to experience joy?




Card 2: The 9 of Vessels (Cups)





From the authors:

Nine of Vessels - Generosity

We are approaching the end of the Vessels cycle and now the energy of the suit is rising like the tide as we reach the Nine of Vessels.

As we have journeyed through the suit of Vessels, we have sloughed off that which no longer serves us, grieved its passing and embraced our spiritual rebirth, now, here in the Nine of Vessels that emotional power flows out from us into the world.

A seated figure is depicted in a meditative pose in the centre of the card, surrounded by Vessels. From the figure flows incredible energy – the full flowing energy of Vessels: Generosity, Compassion and Love.

This is more than the romantic love of the Two of Cups, this is agape, universal brotherly (and sisterly!) love for our companions on the planet.

Generosity of spirit creates connection between people. Share your good fortune via the open hand of intentional giving. Be mindful of our experience of the Eight of Vessels - What flows willingly from you comes back to you in the end.

* Where are you pulling in/shutting down away from the Nine Vessels energy?


* Where can you be expansive and embracing?

This week's featured deck is The Crystal Visions Tarot by Jennifer Galasso


From Amazon:

"Crystal Visions Tarot remains true to the classic Rider-Waite 78-card system in much of its symbolism, as well as in card and suit names. The luscious card imagery also illustrates the elemental aspects of each suit in order to aid the novice in forming associations with the cards. The Crystal Visions Tarot deck includes 78 cards with an additional unknown card for gazing into future situations that have not yet been revealed, or for exploring issues with deeper insight. The instruction booklet offers both upright and reversed meanings. Aeclectic Tarot readers voted Crystal Visions Tarot one of the Top Ten Decks of All Time. Crystal Visions Tarot was voted Top Ten Most Popular Tarot Decks of 2011 by Aeclectic Tarot. Tarotize.com named Crystal Visions Tarot the Prettiest Tarot Deck published in 2011."



Card 1: The 8 of Pentacles




The Eight of Pentacles Tarot card indicates a time of hard work, commitment, diligence, and dedication. The effort you put in will not be in vain, as your hard work will pay off and lead to results, rewards, or the accomplishment of your goals.

When this Minor Arcana card appears in your Tarot reading, it indicates that you are methodically working towards something you want. It may seem boring, mundane, or even relentless at the moment; but you are on the brink of achieving great success, so don’t give up. The skills you are learning now will serve you later in life; and you will come away from this experience not only with the inner wisdom you've gained, but with a sense of pride and self-confidence from achieving your ambitions.

Card 2: The 7 of Cups





The Seven of Cups Tarot card represents having lots of options to choose from, or multiple possibilities open to you. It can be an indication that you have so many choices or so many things going on at once, that you may be overwhelmed, or unable to focus properly. You need to limit the amount of things you are taking on to a manageable amount. There is no point in agreeing to do things, if you can’t give them the time and attention they deserve. Try to be realistic about what you can commit to.

The Seven of Cups can also signify that you may be indulging in wishful thinking, fantasies, or living in a dream world. When this Minor Arcana card appears in a Tarot reading, it indicates that you need to make a decision in your life, and realistically look at where you are. Take proactive steps to make your situation better rather than fantasizing about how you want it to be. Your imagination is a great tool to help you envision your future but it will never happen unless you take action to make it happen.


Key words: Lots of options, choices, multiple possibilities, opportunities, picking and choosing, decisions, procrastination, dreaming, fantasy, illusion, wishful thinking, imagination, hallucinations, meditation.
