This weeks randomly drawn card is the Seven of Cups, which in The Wild Unknown deck is portrayed as a mind bending optical illusion. Depending on your perspective you might see a pyramid shape with a cup balanced precariously on it’s apex; or looking at it another way, it may appear as a channel or trench with the cup placed at the end.
When this card appears we often have many seemingly interesting and appealing choices. However this card cautions us to take our time and weigh up our options carefully. This could be a classic case of ‘all that glitters is not gold’. Can we trust what is in front of us, or is all not as it seems? Often when there is a plethora of options it can lead to confusion and paralysis making it almost impossible to make a decision.
So this week we need to be very clear on what it is we really want, and beware of being taken in by a mesmerising fantasy which may subsequently crumble to dust. Don’t be tricked into falling for a scenario which turns out to be no more than smoke and mirrors with no real substance.
Today make sure that if a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well. Put all your focus on the task in hand to achieve the best results. Remember to become fully absorbed to produce your best work.
Watch your thoughts today. Are you making a mountain out of a molehill? This card often comes up when we are being overly melodramatic about a situation. Is it really as bad as it seems, or have we exaggerated it in our mind to mammoth proportions? If we truly are facing a dire situation this card says that we have seen the worst now and things from here can only get better. Things always seem darkest before the dawn and soon the sun will be coming up on a brand new day.
Today may feel like a prolific day for inspiration and ideas. You could be bursting with a profusion of colourful thoughts, so much so that it becomes overwhelming, preventing you going forward with any of them! Make sure you capture your creative visions by jotting them down for future reference.
Today, use your considerable powers to make manifest something that you desire. You have all the necessary tools at your disposal and the wherewithal to bring everything together to achieve your aim. Your connection between the spiritual and the physical is sharply focused at the moment so go make things happen!
Things built on shaky foundations may topple today. Sometimes this is necessary in order to build new and enduring structures which will stand the test of time. Maybe something will happen which will lead you to question your beliefs and conditioning, allowing new and more useful paradigms to take root in your life.
Today’s fiery energy is characterised by the Ace of Wands. It indicates inspired ideas and creativity. Maybe a promising thought will pop into your head and you’ll be enthusiastic to get cracking and bring this project to fruition. However the Aces are all about potential, so no matter how great an idea seems it will also require action and focused work to make it a reality.
This weeks randomly selected card is the Father of Wands. As always when working with the energy of the tarot this could relate to a man or a woman, or to qualities within yourself which should be brought to the fore at this time.
The Father of Wands is highly creative, charismatic and intelligent. This person is a natural leader who can inspire, encourage and motivate others. They are very confident in their abilities and extremely ambitious and goal oriented. So much so, that sometimes these traits can be taken a step too far and spill over into ruthlessness or showing off.
It is fair to say that the Father of Wands character is very easily bored so needs constant stoking of the fires of inspiration if they are to maintain long term interest in a project or creative endeavour.
Nothing fazes or scares the Father of Wands, and although this character doesn’t go looking for trouble they can be intimidating and become aggressive if confronted. They certainly have a hot and fiery temper, and a flair for the dramatic! This is definitely someone you do not mess around with as they are more than capable of defending their domain and will not shirk from doing so with vigour.
The Father of Wands is a reminder this week not to shy away from our own power. Be the flamboyant, force of nature that you know you can be! What is it that you want to create in your own life, and which skills and strengths can you utilise to make it happen? Have you got plans that feel both exciting and inspiring but also grounded and workable? If so, try out the Father of Wands approach to life and see what you are capable of manifesting!
Today try and approach any issues or obstacles in a creative fashion. Think outside the box and bring any inspired ideas into the light of day. Read between the lines in your interactions with others and don’t dismiss any intuitive hits or hunches that come to mind.
You may see evidence today that projects are starting to come to fruition….. so much so that you may even have enough spare resources to help out someone else as well. If you are the one in need of assistance don’t be afraid to reach out to others and accept their generosity and help, whether that be in time, money or something else.
