Tarot Tuesday: The Big Reveal December 17, 2019

It's time for our big reveal! For those who haven't done so, please go to the Facebook page and choose your card. Yes, they are both from the same deck. It's time for us to move to a deeper level. To be clear, we are not going back to two different decks. Don't worry. You've got this.

Our deck today is The Wildwood Tarot. Note: I share these decks with you freely, and I do not receive any compensation for doing so.

Card 1: Balance (Temperance)

Do you see both sides of an argument? Can you lead adversarial parties toward a middle ground? Have you recently discovered the value in sharing control? Is your recovery something that has brought you to a happy medium in life? Are the days of excess behind you? The Temperance card is the Tarot’s way of indicating that peace will not be arriving, because you already have it within you. When you are in that even place away from the harsh side of things, you will find that peace, and in unleashing it, exert the greatest amount of control over your world with the least amount of effort you could ever imagine.

In the present position, you are finding common ground in a dispute. This is a great card to appear if you are going through a divorce and custody battle. You can feel confident that, moving forward, things will be equitable despite past disagreements. We often cling to our more extreme positions out of a fear of what life will be like were we to move toward the mainstream. Temperance insists that in abandoning extremism, you will actually be happier, will not miss the past at all and may find a greater degree of acceptance for who you are and what you believe. The stubborn side of your character will be replaced with tolerance when Temperance appears in the present position.

Card 2: The Blasted Oak (Tower/Hanged Man)

In this deck, The Blasted Oak combines the energies of both the Hanged Man and the Tower. By combining the Hanging Man card with the Tower card, we change the dynamic drastically. The Tower signifies illumination, enlightenment and the destruction of old thought processes, outmoded ideas and behaviors. Oftentimes, you will see a man being flung from a crumbling tower that has been struck by lightning.

The Blasted Oak, therefore represents our perseverance over our obstacles and a deep understanding of self (the climbing of the tree), but even as we have liberated ourselves in a sense, we have still been bound here, by the barriers of our own beliefs, by detrimental behaviors or relationships, and now we are being awakened to those things.
The flash of lightning, the illumination we have needed, the sudden, painful experience that will deliver us to our fate, seems to be more harmful than helpful, but it burns away all prejudices, ill feelings, and confining thoughts. It illuminates and eliminates what no longer serves us and delivers us to our clean slate. It shows us where we have been holding ourselves back, and the pain of that becomes more unbearable than the pain of staying the same.
