The Big Reveal! Tarot Tuesday, May 22, 2018

/ Tuesday, May 22, 2018

It's time for the Big Reveal for Tarot Tuesday! If you're new, and you haven't checked out the Facebook page, please do that first. You want to choose your card there, first.

For those veteran wildlings who've been doing this awhile, let's do this!


Card 1: The Two of Wands



Tarot of Dreams
Are you feeling in charge? Is your sense of self-empowerment so thorough that you feel like taking a gamble? Did you recently confront a tense task head-on? Have you had some recent successes that have increased your confidence? Can you brag, "I'm doing it my way"? Did you ever think you would enjoy being in a leadership position?

The new level of independence and authority that you have achieved, will pull the Two of Wands out of the Tarot deck and drop it into your reading. This card is confirmation that you are on a winning streak. This is based on a belief in yourself, and will continue as long as your original approach continues to solve problems for you and those around you.

When this card is in the present position, you are feeling on top of the world, and in charge. There is a strong possibility that you were recently given some new level of authority, and you are embracing this as a sign of success. At its weakest, the Two of Wands here means that you can feel emboldened to raise your voice in objection to wrongs that you see. Hardly weakness, all things considered.




Card 2: Knight of Cups



Steampunk Tarot
When you are inspired but not productive, when you have champagne taste but a wine cooler budget, when a smooth-talking person in your life has big plans but no resources … in all of these cases and more, look for the Knight of Cups to appear in your Tarot reading to describe this phenomena.

The Knight of Cups encourages you to remember that victory is not just an exercise in strength of arms, but can be achieved through cleverness and a savvy mind. He can also be given to flights of wild fancy, though, so you may also interpret him as a warning to maintain your focus. New initiatives in your life are likely on their way, and you must remember to seek novel paths to accomplish goals, but also not lose sight of where you are going.




Card 3: Queen of Swords



Legacy of the Divine Tarot
Have you been direct and honest in your dealings lately? Are you quick to understand the way things are done in any new environment? Have you been there and done that? Are you happy to share your expertise but still excited to learn the new ways of doing things?

The Queen of Swords is a pleasant card in the way it reveals that you have plenty of experience from which to draw, but are genuinely interested in always learning more. When this card appears in your Tarot reading, the worst that someone could say about you is that you are a bit jaded. But the positive possibilities are overwhelming in a card that tells it like it is with kindness and self-assurance.

In general, the Queen of Swords can indicate that your instincts are serving you well. You already know what it is you want and need, now you just have to go after it. Be mindful of other people's boundaries as you are doing so, however. This Queen has forceful energy which some people find abrasive.



Card 4: The Moon



Crystal Visions Tarot

Have you discovered an unfamiliar yet beautiful new reality? Are you feeling disconnected to the values and traditions with which you were brought up? Is an alienation from the norm creeping into your life? Have you been talked into something that only last year you would have considered preposterous? Are you aimless in your goals and ambition? Has an artistically inspired streak of creativity suddenly appeared out of nowhere? All of these brooding outsider tendencies call forth The Moon card from the Tarot deck when you seek a reading to show you the way.

The world around you may be different, and the structures that have long comforted you are suddenly absent. The temptations of alcohol, drugs, meaningless pleasure-seeking, gambling, and other escapes from reality are all too real. The Moon represents falling out of touch with reality.

However, it also represents a chance to better yourself by not believing in the false assumptions that we all agree to within societal norms. Instead of following the path that you are told will get you somewhere (the path that has at present left you lost), The Moon signals your opportunity to create your own structures; a life from your own imagination and design.



How did you do? Does the card you chose fit for you right now? If not, why do you think that is? If so, congratulations! What is your take-away for today?

As always, the best discussions take place on the Facebook page. Come on over and leave a comment! We're all family here. Let me know what I can do to support you, my lovely wildling!

Happy New Moon in Taurus! It's Tarot Tuesday, and we're here to work- on our intuition, that is! If you're new, here's how it works. Go to the Facebook page, choose your card, then come back here to see how well you did.  For the veteran wildlings, let's get to it!


Card 1: The Queen of Wands



China Tarot


Have you noticed a pleasant popularity in your life? Are you feeling more upbeat about your present situation as well as the future? Have you noticed that you no longer get annoyed at things that you once found aggravating? You might be so active and upbeat that the appearance of the Queen of Wands Tarot card in your reading will not be a surprise at all. Your optimism and active daily routine reflect using your creative energy to be part of the good solutions in the world. Your reading will reveal where you can best apply your cheery, classy approach to life.

In the present position, this card indicates that you are at a new plateau in your development. You are able to more clearly see where you have been, and can appreciate the trials and tribulations of days gone by, as much as you can the victories, for the beneficial and detrimental have made you a more complete person. Careful, though! Uranus has moved into Taurus today, and that is all about shaking up folks and forcing us off our plateaus. Be ready for anything, and use what you've learned to navigate the next 7 year cycle.



Card 2: The 3 of Swords



Prismavisions Tarot


Are you feeling alone? Abandoned? Betrayed? Have irreconcilable differences divided a once healthy relationship? The Three of Swords is a card that represents your pain. What lies on the other side of this sorrow can be enhanced understanding and joy. Allow yourself to fully experience any sorrow or pain that comes up now, so that you can move beyond it.

In general, this card can point to very deep emotional issues that must be addressed before the querent can move on. Denying pain does not make it go away (any more than denying a broken leg makes it heal.) However, attention must be paid to balance here also as it must be paid with the 2 of Swords. Allow yourself to experience any pain that comes up now, but do not wallow in it. You do not and should not wallow in grief or sorrow for long. However only you can decide how long is long enough. Others can't decide it for you.

There is a silver lining, here. Note that the swords are all in a position of rest. While life has been painful, there is no more damage to be done. Tears are sacred. Let them flow, and let them heal.
You've been through the pain, and you have learned. Remember the lessons, and rest.



Card 3: The Knight of Swords


The Gilded Tarot

In general, the Knight of Swords is a change card, it tells you that a big change is coming, one you have been awaiting for quite some time, and you better be ready to roll with it when it does. It’s time to jump in and seize the moment!

This is a Minor Arcana card of being assertive, direct, honest, quick-witted, and intellectual. It signifies being dashing, daring, brave, courageous, or rebellious. It also represents being talkative, ambitious, forward thinking, focused, and single-minded. When this card appears in your Tarot reading, it can indicate that you go against the flow and have great leadership qualities and that you are a perfectionist and a risk taker.

In your present position, the Knight of Swords brings with him the possible opportunity to change your life in a big and meaningful way, although it may not seem that way at face value. This speaks to Uranus moving into Taurus today, shocking us out of our complacency, and forcing us to determine what we really want from life. What makes it meaningful? How does the energy of this card help you make that decision?



Card 4: The 2 of Pentacles



The Fenestra Tarot



When the Two of Pentacles is in the present position, you are sailing along with so many projects and interests that you don't have time to be miserable or look back on life with regrets. This is a great position for this card because it affirms the energy you are putting into non-traditional efforts is magically balancing with the demands of the real world on your time and money.

If you feel as though you are sacrificing one aspect of your life for another, try to figure out a way to balance the two. A popular example of this is someone who spends all of their time working while making little to no time with their loved ones. Find a way to nurture both for a happier future.

Remember, with Uranus moving into Taurus today, something could happen to try to shake you out of any complacency in which you have been stagnating. Remember to keep your balance as you navigate right now.

Card 1: The 6 of Wands

Shadowscapes Tarot
The 6 of Wands is a very positive omen. It can indicate that despite the challenges you are facing, you will overcome them and come out on top. This card also points toward literal or metaphorical movement; things are changing, in a positive way. 

A Six of Wands landing in the present position of your Tarot reading indicates that complete victory is at hand. If you are seeking the Tarot reading to see if a court case or other struggle is about to be over, this is an affirmative answer delivered on horseback. If you are looking for answers as to why you are struggling with a relationship or other personal setbacks, be they career, emotional or financial, the Six of Wands demands that you consider how your pride and vanity may be getting in the way of simple solutions.

In general, the 6 is about happiness and celebration. You are about to see some results for your hard work and efforts. Give yourself a break or treat yourself in some way. You have certainly earned it.



Card 2: The 9 of Cups


Tarot de St. Croix
The 9 of Cups is one of the most uplifting and pleasant cards to receive in a reading. Known often as the "wish card" it can mean that what you are hoping for or dreaming about most is very likely to be yours – in a brief period of time, generally, too.

When you picture a Tarot reading in your mind, even if you have never seen a deck of cards before in your life, you are hoping for a card to come out that confirms you will be getting everything you are wishing for. Every Tarot reading starts with the desire for your psychic to pull up the Nine of Cups.

The appearance of this card is usually a portent of happiness, and good things about to come. It also usually means that what you want is likely to come into being in your life. If asking a yes/no type of question, this card is the most powerful indicator of "yes." Just remember, nothing is set in stone. You must put in the effort to achieve what you want in life.



Card 3: The Knight of Swords


Tarot of the Hidden Realm

Unlike a number of the Swords cards, the Knight of Swords actually brings a fairly upbeat and cheerful energy. Knights can often mean that someone or something desirable is about to seek you out. The Knight of Swords also points to your physical, emotional, and spiritual energy being at a peak


If you're waiting for news from someone or something, you are likely to like what you hear. The Knight of Swords can point to lots of activity, travel, being out and about, getting things accomplished. You are unlikely to feel like waiting for anything to come to you; that's a good thing… go after your heart's desire.

In relation to work questions, this is a particularly good omen if you are looking for work. A job that is just what you've been hoping for may suddenly come your way. If already employed, things are about to get a lot busier, in a very positive way. 




Card #4: The Sun

When the Sun card shows for you, it's a sign that soon you are likely to find yourself feeling more free than you have in a while - maybe years. This is a great time to take a vacation and to experience different things. The Sun is about vitality, freedom, joy, and self-expression.

Things in general are very likely to be going very well for you. However, even though finances are likely to be in good shape when this card appears, that does not mean that you should lose focus on what is truly important in life, and money is not very high on that list. This is a good time to socialize, to meet new people, and to get out and about.

Money is likely to be better than usual. Your health and feelings are in a good place.This is a time when you are very likely to be able to see the truth with a capital "T" about life; which is that there is a great deal of beauty, joy and happiness to be found in this life, if you are looking hard enough and in the right places. Spread this very important message. This is a great time to try different spiritual approaches on for size to see if any of them work for  you.

So, how did you do? Are you finding these exercises helpful? How else can I support you in honing your intuition? The best conversations happen on the Facebook page, so come on over, give the page a like, and meet some new wildling friends while you're at it! We look forward to hearing from you!

Lamprocapnos is a gorgeous member of the poppy family known by many names: bleeding heart,  lyre flower, lady-in-a-bath, Venus's car, Lady's locket, Tearing hearts, and Our Lady in a Boat.

The folklore to this plant gives a hint to its magical uses. The story goes: 
Long ago there lived a noble prince who tried in vain to win the heart of a very beautiful princess. The prince had brought the princess wonderful gifts from his travels far and wide. Yet she had taken no notice of him. One day the prince returned from a long journey with very special gifts to surely win the love of the princess. First he presented her with two magical pink bunnies. The princess only sighed and barely looked at the little bunnies. The hopeful prince had one more gift saved for last – he presented a pair of beautiful enchanted earrings. Again, the princess hardly noticed the prince’s gift. Now the poor prince was utterly heartbroken. He could try no more to win the heart of the princess. He rose up, pulled a dagger from his sheath and stabbed himself in the heart. The princess was overcome by the dedication of the dying prince and his unending love for her. She realized too late that she loved him also. “Alas,” she cried out. “I have done wrong, my own heart is broken also. I shall bleed for my prince forever more!” And her heart bleeds to this very day (with thanks to "Folklore for Children" for this story).
Bleeding heart is how I have always known this beauty. She will work with you in matters of love and sorrows of the heart.

One way you can work with her is to take some flowers (with permission) and press them to use in love magic (attraction, potions, etc.)

Another is a bit cruel to the plant, in my opinion, but I'll share it as a divination tool. If you choose to use it this way, please provide an offering to the plant as an energy exchange. To determine if your lover is true, crush the flower- if the blood of the flower flows red, your love is true. If it flows white, his/her love is gone, and it's time to move on.

Folklore says that love needs freedom to grow, therefore, the plant is best grown outdoors. If you choose to grow indoors, place a copper penny in the bottom of the pot as payment for the loss of freedom to the plant.



As always, remember wildly witches, plants are sentient creatures. As you learn to listen to their language, you will see their personalities unfold. This is part of our rewilding. Speak little, listen much.

Until next time!

Sláinte (to your good health)



Call me "Ishmael." No, wrong book. That's Moby Dick.


I'm referring to "Ishmael" by Daniel Quinn. If you've ever seen the movie, "Instinct," with Anthony Hopkins and Cuba Gooding, you will know the correlations. The movie is loosely based on this book.

Quick Synopsis: https://www.cliffsnotes.com/literature/i/ishmael/book-summary

I purposefully renamed my site to Wildly Witch as to not use the article "a" (see the video above for further explanation).  For those of you who love Ly De Angeles as much as I do, please follow the YouTube site, as she's going to do more of these videos there. If you haven't heard of her, please consider purchasing her latest book, "Witch: For Those Who Are".



I've made some changes here on the site. I'm no longer selling tarot or totem readings. Since I'm giving everyone the opportunity to hone their intuition through Tarot Tuesdays, you can learn to read for yourself. If you really need my help or want a reading, reach out to me, personally. I'll happily assist. Payment will be negotiated, as I'm really more interested in doing "in-kind" exchanges. This applies to totem readings as well.

It's a first step. I have a lot to learn in this attempt to rewild my leaver-self. I hope to have some kindred with me on the journey. Let me know how I can support you, too.
