wild {unknown} friday

  The randomly selected card for the upcoming week is the Mother of Wands from The Wild Unknown deck.This card could relate to an actual person taking centre stage in your life this week; or equally it may be describing you, or alternatively the qualities and energy you need to bring to the table to get the best results from events and situations this week.
So, the first thing which springs to mind when I look at this card is how fiercely protective the mother snake appears as she closely guards the nest containing her eggs. Her body is coiled all around them ensuring that predators will have a hard time penetrating her defences. Snakes can also strike in a millisecond if threatened and will stand their ground in a conflict and bravely face an enemy. For these reasons this character is dangerous when provoked and certainly not the kind of person you want to get on the wrong side of!

Individuals with a strong connection to snake energy can often be extremely charming, mystifying and charismatic. Although they love, and seek out warmth and light, and often positively crave attention, fame or recognition, they may also be difficult to get to know emotionally and carefully control their public persona and the face they show to the world. They can be extremely loyal and generous to those who are admitted to their inner sanctum, but only after you have proved to them that you are worthy of their trust.
Because of the association with transformation which snakes hold by the shedding of their skin, it could also indicate a person who has survived much trauma in their life and through this become extremely strong and resilient. People who identify with the symbolism of the snake may be stubborn and fiercely independent. They have had to walk their own path so do not take kindly to attempts to control or manipulate and will go their own way no matter what. They can be the most loyal, protective person you could ever wish to meet, or on the other side of the coin if you cross them you could find yourself being swallowed whole for breakfast!

This weeks card is Maker Nine (Nine of Pentacles) from The Tarot of the Sidhe.
It depicts a strong and sturdy tree, rooted in the earth and reaching to the heavens. The tree is abundant with foliage and beautiful pink blossom. It is surrounded by lush, verdant countryside, and beside a babbling brook. In the background a fiery, nourishing sun rises above this fertile land.
You will notice that the tree stands alone and independent…..more than capable of sustaining and providing for itself. It has everything required for nourishing itself ~ rich soil, pure water and abundant light. In these conditions it can thrive and grow prolifically. This indicates a time of great comfort and satisfaction.
In life this is a metaphor for being able to take care of yourself. You have everything required to nurture yourself, without the need to rely on others. Sometimes it might not seem like it, but look around you and it will be apparent that your life is rich with resources and support that will always help you to meet your needs.
When this card appears good health is indicated, and it is a time to thrive and flourish. The tree is rooted in the earth, with it’s leaves opening up to the sun. The profusion of pink blooms show that you are truly “in the pink” right now.
Until next week,
Caro Tarot💛
