Tarot Tuesday: The Wild Unknown

Oh, hello there, lovelies!

How goes it today, friends?

I’ve been getting in a little community and travel therapy this past week. My body’s tired but it’s been magick for the spirit!

I didn’t come back with a lot of travel themed souvenirs but I did go a little tarot deck crazy. I was traipsing about the historic Pike’s Place Farmer’s Market and stumbled away from the crowds towards the familiar calling scents of Patchouli and Nag Champa. It’s funny how a small new age/dirty hippie store looks kind of the same no matter where you go. I strolled about the small space a bit aimlessly, seeing the familiar oils, essences, and incense burners. Noticing a tarot reader in back and tarot section in their few shelves of books I took a quick gander. I then took one last grounding breath of aroma therapy and turned myself bravely towards the chaos of the market at midday that awaited outside the shop’s doors.

Luckily (or due to the Fates), I got a few extra minutes outside of the shop waiting for afternoon travel plans to solidify. I foggily gazed back at the store and noticed a Wild Unknown poster in the window. I had been eyeing this deck for awhile, knowing I could order it online, but also sort of waiting for it to find me. Intrigued, I went back into the store and sure enough, on a second glance, with a little more intention, there it sat in the display case I had stood directly over a few minutes before! I couldn’t resist and I’m so happy I didn’t!

I’m sure there will be many more Tarot Tuesdays  devoted to a lovefest with The Wild Unknown but for now I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate for this little playshop space that we’ve built here together other than Kim Krans’ opening invitation into this beautiful deck:

There are a lot of contradicting voices out there about how to use the cards & what they mean… You’ll probably come up against these feelings too as you start to give readings to yourself or others. Doubts, fears, “I can’t do this”, “I don’t know enough”.

Well here’s the thing: you do know enough. You’ve been a person on earth every day since you were born. You’ve experienced all the emotions and situations these cards depict. Quiet the naysayer… don’t let him prevent you from sitting down with a friend (or yourself) & using these cards to help you talk about what’s going on in your life. It will be positive. It will be radical. You’ll find things start to reveal themselves through the cards that have been hidden away, covered with dust. May these cards bring you moments of peace & steadiness. I would be so honored.”
