This week's deck is The Wildwood Tarot:

Amazon description:

"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: Four of Wands (Bows)




The Four of Wands is the Tarot's way of letting you know that there is a surprise on the way and that you are going to be overjoyed by it.

In the present position, the Four of Wands refers to your planning a celebration, birthday or anniversary and yet, a surprise is looming for you. The fact of life remains that we often only see beauty when we are not looking for it. Although a ritual that brings people together to mark an occasion is often meant to be beautiful, it can often consist of just going through the motions. The Four of Wands reveals that you will be surprised how an ordinary get-together will suddenly become one of the most wonderful moments of your life.

Key words: Happy families, reunion, coming home, celebrations, surprises, parties, weddings, events, feeling welcome, community or family coming together, community spirit, teamwork, success, prosperity, stability, security, laying down roots, pride, self-esteem, being proud of achievements.





Card 2: 6 of Pentacles (Stones)





Did you get what you wished for but are wondering if you might have wasted your wish? Are you overseeing a lot of money but have access to little or none of it? Are there strings attached to a relationship that are affecting your material security? Did someone accuse you of being on your very first power trip? Who told you that you were giving your money to a good cause? The Six of Pentacles is a card that indicates your identification with material wants and needs may be out of balance with who you really are, whether your needs are being met and what you really want, anyway.


The Six of Pentacles is strong in the present position and can be one of the most confrontational cards in the Tarot deck. You need to be woken up from your state of denial about your relationship to the material plane in general and money specifically. This card here indicates that some forces are controlling your finances. Be it a stingy parent, an aloof partner or a credit card agreement that charges too much interest, you are stunted in your growth as a person due to limitations on your material situation. The lack of control over your own destiny is the most frustrating aspect.

From the author of this deck, John Matthews:

"This card is not just about acquiring vast wealth and plenty – it’s about what we do with it. In the current climate, it seems scarcely necessary to mention that we squander it. Just as the banks have taken our money, and played games of chance with it, that have left hundreds of people and businesses (not to mention whole countries) bankrupt; so there are countless examples in the world of people and institutions squandering the riches given us by the earth.
Another meaning for this card could be: everything its place; everything working according to its kind. Here is the original image we intended for the card, though in the end it was changed because it did not fit so well with the rest of the suite:
We see the world as if though the faceted eye of a fly. In each facet is a different image. Six are of carved jewels, each a different type, each one dug out of the earth. The rest show insects; bees, ants, flies, worms - each one busy about its life.” (Read more here.)

How did you do? What insights have you gleaned from today, and how will you incorporate them into your full moon workings? Come on over to the Facebook page, and discuss.

Sláinte!

This Week's Totem: Owl


Barn Owl


The Owl has long been a symbol of wisdom, insight, intuition and rebirth. Owl, in Greek Mythology, sat on the shoulder of Athena, the goddess of wisdom, battle and the arts. Owl helps you see through deceptions, make wise choices, and start your life anew. In my Phi Theta Kappa induction, Athena is the goddess that is honored for her intellectual assistance. It isn't just intellectual, though. Intuition is high with those who carry the owl totem. They just seem to know where to be and when to be there. They have a sense of being "an old soul".

Owl in Native Nations of the Americas is usually seen as a harbinger of death.. but, not necessarily in the physical sense. It's about clearing away old habits, destructive cycles and patterns to clear the way for you to start on a new adventure. 

Call upon Owl to help you see what needs clearing in your life. Take stock, clean house (whether that's physical or spiritual) and when you are through,  you can make plans for the next beginning of your life-song.



For those of you who like to plan ahead, we have the First Quarter moon on Tuesday. After that, the moon is in her waxing gibbous phase for the rest of this week. She will move through the signs of Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and Leo this week. The Daily Magic Guides are posted every morning at 5am EST on the Wildly, Witch Facebook Page. However, many of you do like to see what's going on ahead of time. These are for you:

Our featured deck this week is The Fenestra Tarot by Chatriya.



Description (from US Game Systems):

"Thai artist, Chatriya has creatively fused traditional tarot symbolism with elements from her own culture and influences as far reaching as Egypt, Art Deco, mythology and Japanese manga, illustrated with soothing colors. Fenestra Tarot features beautifully rendered figures set off in frames suggestive of arched windows."



Card 1: The Six of Cups




The Six of Cups Tarot card can represent nostalgia, childhood memories, and focusing on the past. When this card appears in a Tarot spread you may be being influenced by past events, reminiscing about the past or thinking about someone from your past. 

The Six of Cups is also the Minor Arcana card of children, young people and youthfulness and can represent having children or taking care of or working with them. It can signify simplicity, playfulness, innocence, goodwill and sharing. It can also represent protection and family. If you have been going through a tough time, the Six of Cups may be telling to take the support available to you from family and close friends. 

The Six of Cups, in the present position can let you know that you may be too trusting of an individual. It also may be a card that indicates your genuine affection for someone is the reason you are succeeding. 

This is a card of enjoying the moment without consideration for the consequences of your actions. Tarot readers at tourist resorts see this card come up seemingly more often than the laws of chance would allow for. People on vacation are inherently at play.


Key words: Children, childhood memories, past influences, yearning, homesickness, nostalgia, reunions, playfulness, youthfulness, innocence, creativity, kindness, goodwill, simplicity, childishness, immaturity, sharing, gifts, charity, family, support, protection, childhood issues, having fun.



Card 2: The Page of Pentacles






The Page of Pentacles is the bearer of good news in earthly matters such as money, business, education, career, property, or health. It represents making a solid start or laying the foundation for future success. The message with this Minor Arcana card is to decide what you want and really go for it. Jump in and seize your opportunities while you can. It tells you that if you make the right decisions now and put the groundwork in you will achieve your long terms goals. 

You may find yourself thinking about your long term future, when it appears. If representing a person, the Page of Pentacles represents a young person, child or person who is young at heart, who is grounded, loyal, responsible, dependable and ambitious and who has common sense and excellent future prospects. They may be an Earth sign such as Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn.


In the present position,the Page of Pentacles indicates that you are only now coming to certain terms about the real world. This is a good place for the card to land because in reference to your current state of affairs, you will be blessed with a calm and rational approach to all pressing problems. This is a good card to have if you are in a tense financial situation as it gives you the cleverness of a child with nothing to lose and everything to gain. Apply this approach to your income problems and you could be out of the red and into the black in no time.


Key words: Good news in earthly matters, solid beginnings, setting goals, developing a plan, laying the foundations, taking advantage of opportunities, jumping in, consistency, excellent prospects, excelling in or seeking education/ training, ambitions, decide what you want and go for it, grounded young person, loyal, faithful, dependable, healthy lifestyle, Tarot/ divination, earth magic, nature.

This Week's Totem: Wolf





Wolves are the epitome of the wild spirit. Their positive characteristics are so numerous that the Native people of the Americas practically deified them. Wolves are also very ritualistic. They live by carefully defined rules.

They pile up stones to mark their territory, and howl as a form of group echo-location. Each member of the pack has a specific place within it, and they are ruled by an alpha male/female. Wolves do not fight unnecessarily. They often go out of their way to avoid conflicts where possible. This is also true for those with wolf medicine.

Wolves are extremely intelligent and have a strong connection to corvids (ravens and crows). They have excellent hearing and sense of smell. Wolf medicine people can often smell that something isn’t right when others cannot. 
Wolves are considered to be great teachers, and those with this totem tend toward teaching roles.

This week, we feature the China Tarot Deck, by Der Jin.


Description (from Amazon): 

"An Eastern anthem to the beauty of the soul, this stunning collection of delicate images speaks of the magic and poetry of China. Infinite shades of emotion―joy, melancholy, love, ambition, etc.―help us identify with every well-crafted figure and scene."



Card 1: Queen of Wands




The Queen of Wands reminds you that you are upbeat, courageous, and determined. You are here to see through your creative visions and life purpose, even in the face of adversity and challenge. Highly self-actualized and self-aware, you know how to best channel your strengths and weaknesses to achieve your goals. You are optimistic and full of ideas to share with others. You know what you want and how to get it, and are masterful at engaging with others to achieve your goals. Stay fiercely determined and focused on your goals while being friendly and optimistic with those around you.

The Queen of Wands encourages you to get to know your shadow self, the lesser-known and sometimes darker side of who you really are. This doesn’t necessarily need to be a negative aspect of yourself, but could be something that most people don’t know about you… yet! It may be your dark sense of humor, a secret life from your past, or a passion project you’ve kept hidden away. While you may want to protect this part of yourself, the Queen of Wands encourages you to express this side more openly with others – don’t be afraid to show your shadow now and then. It will enable you to connect with others on a deeper level.


Key words: Energetic, vivacious, strong, courageous, passionate, funny, independent, confident, optimistic, outgoing, assertive, sexy, chaotic, hot tempered, forgetful, efficient, accomplishing many tasks, efficiency, motherhood, fertility, a lot of balls in the air, helping others, organizing your life, taking charge.




Card 2: The Eight 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. 

When the Eight of Pentacles lands in the present position, you are working hard toward a goal. The pursuit of something perfect is paying off, but there is still much work to be done. This is a card that indicates dreams are deferred while you work to make them as great as they can be.

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
