The Power of Tarot
This week begins with Easter Sunday and is followed by Earth Day on Monday. With a lack of Air element, it can be a week of drama, and potential overreaction. Energetically, Friday looks to be the best day of the week. In honor of Earth Day, we return to the Wildwood Tarot by Mark Ryan and John Matthews. They include this quote by Robert Bly in the introduction:
We need wilderness and extravagance.
Whatever shuts a human being away from the waterfall and the tiger will kill him.
So, let us re-enter the Wildwood and look for Easter eggs this week:
Day (Page of Vessels – Otter)
The Otter is sacred in the Celtic tradition due to its ability to move between the worlds. It is equally at home on land or in water. It’s a good day to listen and tune in to your intuition, to your imagination, to weave new spells and dream new dreams for yourself and others. It is a good day for meditation, forgiveness, and things that support the soul. Where do you need to let your feelings show? Who is getting closer to you?
Other meanings: Study. Willingness to serve. Vision and contemplation.
Evening (Six of Vessels – Reunion)
Tonight is a good time to remember your ancestors and honor them. There can be emotional reunions via Karmic cycles that bring lovers back together. These reunions can occur to complete unfinished business, or to teach/learn new lessons from old actions or wrong choices. This reunion may also refer to the individual uniting with their own true nature. It is a good night to review past issues and meditate for new wisdom and insights to gain understanding and clearing. You can understand whether the correct path was taken and that your decisions were based on valid and honest instincts and motivations.
MONDAY – EARTH DAY
Day (0 – The Wanderer)
Today it is time to set aside the burdens of the past. The Wanderer is ready to make the leap into the unknown. All that is required is faith. This card represents the wisdom or courage to step into the void of the possible. You have come to a junction or turning point in your life. Your spirit must move on and the desire to leap into the unknown beckons. Let your imagination carry you into a new set of possibilities. It is a time to travel hopefully and to open your arms to new and challenging aspects of the universe.
Other meanings: Blind faith. A blank slate. The Inner Child. The leap in the dark.
Evening (3 – The Green Woman)
The Green Woman encompasses the female archetype of wildness and green energy. She is a perfect symbol for the Earth Day celebration as she can show the path to understanding and communion with nature. Remember that this glorious spirit can live through you, radiated by the sacred breath of life and given to others who need guidance and healing. Learn from the abundant and joyous spirit of the Earth and be one with the world and your true self.
Other meanings: The Universal Mother. The Wild Woman. Guinevere. Isis.
Day (Ace of Bows – Spark of Life)
As the turning of the cosmic axis generates the spark of life, so does the kindling of a flame sparks the necessary light and warmth in our lives. We kindle the spark that starts the process of creation and empowerment. This takes skill, effort, commitment, and perseverance. The universe always responds with enlightenment, challenge, and opportunity. Be prepared to learn new skills, adapt to a changing environment and focus and tune your instincts to the task at hand. If you are experiencing pain of any sort, it is a spiritual prompt to seek divine help. This is a good day for powerful, bold, and brash activities. It is also a good day for writing and public speaking, doing business and sales.
Evening (Queen of Bows – Hare)
Hares have been linked to the Spring and to sexuality since Celtic times when it was considered taboo to kill them. This Queen represents someone who is a companion through life, who is sympathetic and understanding, leading you to a deeper awareness of what is needed to bring success to your every enterprise. As a person in your life, the Queen of Bows is a popular and dedicated person who has great self-assurance. As an aspect or process, this Queen represents outgoing warmth, jealousy, and rivalry.
Other Meanings: Enchantment. Success in business.
Day (4 – The Green Man)
The Green Man is generous in his bestowal of creative, fertile energy. He will move you to a new level of confident and assertive dynamism. This is a time for giving and receiving the natural flow of life, both inwardly and outwardly. Be prepared to find a new kind of drive to help you jumpstart projects, relationships, and even new ways of living your life. Now is the time to experience being at the apex of the cycle of life. Enjoy it!
Other meanings: The Great Father. The patriarch of nature.
Evening (2 – The Seer)
The Seer represents insight that is gained from the stillness and inwardness of the sojourn with the Hooded Man. The Seer acts as an oracle of the feminine intuition and imaginative principle, but her mediation is based on grounded energy and skill. Tonight, the time has come to focus your power and let it flow through you. Many dreams or desires related to the creative emotional process are ready to be applied in your day-to-day life and you must now give vent to those hidden or suppressed longings. This may also relate to healing sexual relationships or partnerships.
Other Meanings: Inner vision. Empathy with nature. Oracular prophecy.
Day (Page of Bows – Stoat)
Today, you are seen as an emissary and, as such, your gifts are widely recognized and honored. You have the ability to perceive the truth in almost any matter. As a person, this Page is a charming and adventurous individual who may act as an ambassador. This person is a catalyst for change. As an aspect or process, this Page represents working your way up the ladder. Question: Who is offering an opportunity? What is the advantage of staying where you are?
Other meanings: A prodigy. The appearance of a stranger. A free spirit.
Evening (6 – The Forest Lovers)
It is a night to focus on love of all kinds, personal and the love of nature and Mother Earth. Polarity is the key element in the natural ebb and flow of emotional commitment. The Forest Lovers represents a positive spiritual force of creative emotional energy. The Lovers of the Greenwood revere and respect the rites of love as the force that ensures the unfolding cycle of creation. Always bring the light of love with you. Allow it to illuminate the darkest corners of your world and support you through whatever you set out to do.
Other Meanings: Blessed union. Friendship. The rites of spring. The sacred vow.
Day (5 – The Ancestor)
The Ancestor is a creature of myth, half-animal, half-human, but carries the wand of wisdom and the drum that summons all to gather and watch the sunrise. The Ancestor is blessed by the land, and by the divine knowledge that flows from the stars. Today, you have made the leap and started a new cycle. Your spirit has felt it necessary to lead you to the gateway and a new path. Trust your inner voice. Your own inner Ancestor is strong, patient and wise. Let them lead you into the forest with new eyes and a joyful heart.
Other Meanings: Ancient memory. The call of the wild. The spirit of nature in the subconscious human psyche.
Evening (18 – The Moon on the Water)
The Moon on Water signifies the first steps beyond earthy awareness across the primal emotional void of creation. She also encompasses the dark-moon aspects of fertility, sexuality, and initiation as well as the irrational fear of the creatures of the night. This is a time of inner transformation, initiations, or awareness. Your inner voice may have been whispering to you for a while now and gone unheeded. Now your soul brings into your physical world the symbolic keys to the collective human subconscious. This may take the form of a desire you want to pursue, or the wish to explore untapped sexual energy and experience a higher spiritual bond with a partner through honesty and open communication.
Other Meanings: Rebirth. The gateway of the soul. The tides of emotion and consciousness.
Day (16 – The Blasted Oak)
The theme today is about creating and destroying energy. This is akin to the energy of natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes and tidal waves which destroy, but also create the space to re-create and re-build, and remind us of the lesson of impermanence. Today, what appears to be a random dissolution or destruction in some area of your life, is timely and natural. Now you have a base from which your inner strength can adapt and evolve. Don’t be angry or bitter at this passing, for whatever is gone never really belonged to you. Be patient, wait and learn from the process of loss.
Other Meanings: Primal force. Creative destruction. The flash of spiritual illumination.
Evening (King of Stones – Wolf)
Love of the land and of the natural world guides much of what you do tonight. This King represents a mature person who offers a secure and comfortable reliability to those around him/her. He can also be blunt, possessive and vulgar at times. The idea this evening is to appreciate the good things in life and also to learn to handle money. The question is: “Who offers you the best security or pragmatic advice? Where do you need to provide support? Where is life offering you its riches?
Other meanings: Trading. Speculation. Loyalty. Steadfastness. Robust health. Determination.
