Tarot Tuesday's Big Reveal for June 4, 2019

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! 

Today's featured deck is The Wildwood Tarot by John Matthews and Will Worthington.


"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 6 of Bows (Wands)

The Six of Bows (Wands) represents success, victory, winning, triumph, achievement, abundance, and having the advantage. It also signifies praise, acclaim, awards, recognition, applause and goodwill. 

It is a Minor Arcana card of fame, celebrity, fans, well-wishers, supporters, crowds, and being in the spotlight. It indicates that someone is being a leader, riding high, confident, and proud, with high self-esteem. It is a card of strength and stability; and can also represent successful campaigns, and winning battles.

Key words and phrases: Success, victory, winning, having the advantage, triumph, achievement, praise, acclaim, awards, recognition, applause, goodwill, fame, celebrity, fans, well-wishers, supporters, crowds, being in the spotlight, riding high, being a leader, stability, strength, confidence, self-esteem, pride, sharing your victories, campaign trail.

Card 2: The 8 of  Vessels

The Wildwood 8 of Vessels is the counterpart of the more traditional 8 of Cups in the Rider-Waite deck.  The traditional meaning usually suggests the pain in realizing that what you’ve worked to build may not be what will ultimately satisfy you.  

It relates to feelings of disillusionment, and the desire for "something" more. Thus it speaks of moving on, leaving something behind (a relationship, an emotional attachment, a special project) and starting a journey.  

The journey doesn’t necessarily have a clear destination or end-point.  In fact, in many more traditional cards, the moon shines above, illuminating a path that leads through mountainous terrain; the journey is full of mystery and perhaps the traveler will stumble along the way…..and yet, the journey is necessary.  There is a touch of mourning that comes with realizing that it’s time to move along, so the card is not without some sadness.

Release is necessary for rebirth, and rebirth is necessary for our spiritual and emotional health.  Rebirth is not supposed to be comfortable, but it always carries us forward to experience new things, to help us continue to bloom as human beings.  Rebirth is a never-ending part of the cycle of life, what ultimately gives depth and richness to each year that goes by. 

Key words and phrases:  Rebirth, renewal, moving on, self-analysis, letting go, strength, courage, truth-seeking.
