2 of Swords and Eucalyptus

I am always thinking of correlations between the tarot cards and the world, reducing and extrapolating the meaning of a card into a synergistic relationship with something else. This could be a poem, a quote, a movie character, a crystal, or an essential oil. I have recently started using a lot more oils in my personal and spiritual life, and I wanted to see how oils were connected. How did the smell of an oil invoke the memory of a card? How did the impression create the path towards an image, even if they seem so unrelated?2 of swords and eucalyptus

Because the 2 of Swords is the tarot card of the month, I really want to find an oil that represented and resonated the core qualities of this card. As mentioned in my card description which can be found here, I recognized that one of the things that always sticks out to me about the 2 of Swords is the duality. Even the picture of the The Wild Unknown deck has both the Sun and the Moon. The two swords are crossed, either in a protective or attack position, and the Sun is behind the swords, but a full moon blocks the light.

This, at its surface, represents to me both the need for truth and action, intuition and conviction. The light of the Sun brings forth the truth, however harsh, but the moon represents the intuitive, the fluid nature of numerous cycles and ripples or movement in water. This suggests that the truth is attainable, but a core part of ourselves may be blocking that truth. We may think we have come into the light, but there is still a resilient shadow. In order to be skillful, calculated, or effective on our path we need both. Why then does this card feel so hard? I think the answer lies in the number. We have only just begun. Like those who learn the skill of the sword, they must move with the sword and learn the bite of the edge. Those who use the sword must not rely only upon talent or teaching. That will go a long way, but the presence of the moon speaks to finding intuition in movement, learning to trust the path, even if it is not what it seems.

How then does this relate to the chosen oil, Eucalyptus? In order for the duality of both truth and intuition to be in equilibrium, there needs to be as little resistance as possible. There is needs to be clam understanding, calm approach, and a molding of both protection and action. This is why I think of the 2 of the Swords when I smell Eucalyptus. Eucalyptus heals, reduces pain or inflammation, has a slight converging of sweetness and bite.

Eucalyptus can also tend to be overpowering, which is why little is key. Which is where we are at when we enter the 2 of Swords. We have just begun to materialize our vision, dream, or idea. We need to focus on the small amounts that help us grow and start a dialog, and not drown ourselves down with the excess.

Thank you so much for reading, let me know your thoughts in the the comments. Stay wild Wolflings!

August Tarot Card: 2 of Swords

2 of swords

One of the things that I love most about tarot cards is the layers of relativity. There is so much to unpack with each picture and message that it is no wonder that those who learn tarot are often lifelong students. I am always looking for ways to go deeper into the cards, because that is how the meaning of each card manifests. When it takes the physical form of numerous situations in our lives is when it becomes more than just one interpretation.

To be honest, I am not sure how I want to tackle each month. There is so much that I want to discuss with each card. Scents, flowers, people, fictional characters, actions, cause and consequence, light and shadow. All of these could come forth in Tarot card of the month. There could be relevant articles, pictures, art, movies, or unknown connections that I have yet to see. What I do know is that this is the exciting part of tarot. I have always loved to see how tarot cards reveal themselves each day.

For the month of August, the 2 of Swords will be a major focus card. Others will be pulled, discussed, and shared, but I am being called by my guides to really dig deep right now. Maybe it is just a backlash from such an exhausting summer school semester that I feel detached in my own way from the cards. Maybe it is just a new revelation that came in the subconscious river up the cord and into the mind. Whatever the source, I am being called to go deeper into the cards, to really unpack them, and to go slow.

I hope you will join me, and let me know how the 2 of Swords surfaces for you over the next month. My hope is to post something everyday on at least one of my platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or here. My hope for this is to keep the flow of the card moving and growing, so that every day reveals another breadcrumb on this trail. Also, please understand that this is not the only way to learn the cards. In fact, this is not how I initially learned. I pulled all the cards that I could all the time. I was so intensely invested in learning and discovering each card that I may have missed some messages that were coming from an individual archetype.

This isn’t a huge project, but it is a endeavor that I am finally realizing in manifestation. I would love to hear how the 2 of Swords comes around in your life. Stay wild wolflings!

The first book I learned to read tarot with, and how a glossy page can make all the difference.

20180715_131404

Do you ever stand in a bookstore, your eyes darting back and forth between the titles, unsure of which one is the right keeper of knowledge? When I first started to read tarot, it was out of necessity. I needed to put a pulse back in my chest, and a roar back in my throat if I was to brave another year. I went to the bookstore, knowing that I wanted a book worthy of this step. But all the titles professed the same action. They all held promise of expansion and depth, spirit making strides.

I finally settled on this book: The Key to Tarot: From Suits to Symbolism; Advice and Exercises to Unlock your Mystical Potential by Sarah Bartlett. Why did I settle on this book, because it felt beautiful in my hands. The hard, chocolate brown cover felt appropriate. The pages were colored. The pages were glossy. There was something about the shine, the texture, the lift of reds and blues from the page that made me settle on this one.

This book is a great beginner’s book because it goes into each card well for a beginner level. It includes exercises and meditations to connect more deeply into yourself and the craft. It also has some good spreads that I still use today. I must admit that I no longer reach for this book that much, but as my very first tarot book, it was a star-find. Other books that I have purchased since then have not fully compared to this book. Perhaps it is my nostalgia. Perhaps it is glossy pages and way the spine creases into the skin of my folded legs. I don’t know, but I love this little book.

I had placed this book on a shelf after I read it, and moved on to other titles. I came across some journal posts from when I first started reading, and I realized how much writing I did when I was travelling through this book. I wrote in my journal constantly. Everything was somehow related to the meanings of the cards that I was slowly absorbing with this book. I din’t think too much of it. I read the journal posts, smiled at how far I have come, and went about my day.

That was about a week ago. Since then I have gone through many books on my shelves, packing the one that I know I want to keep, but will not read for some time. Others, given away as donations. I pulled this book down off the shelf I was going through and again felt that tinge of nostalgia, like looking at an old picture of myself. I really wanted to go through some of the meditations and exercises again to really see how my tarot interpretations have become layered.

If you are new to tarot, document everything! Write it down, film it, take pictures, draw it. However you do it, just do it. Document your travels because it will become a map. It will show you how to rejoin an old part of yourself that perhaps has slithered deep into the dusky layer of the subconscious. Document so you can look back and see what your gut thoughts were. Don’t take the interpretations in the pages (no matter how glossy) as gospel. Make your own choices and see what is right for you. For example, the book mentioned here reads Court Cards as other people. I have never found Court Cards to be representative messages of other people. Never. Do what feels right, and keep it documented so you can come back with a seasoned heart later for reconnection.

You can find Sarah’s book here, along with many other books that she has written. This is not an affiliate code. I think this is a great little book if you are a tarot novice, or looking for your first book. I would love to hear the books that guided your path, tarot or otherwise. Much love wolflings!

 

 

Manifestation Package

manifestation package 2

When you book a reading with me, one of the things that I offer is a Manifestation Package. This is more than just a free gift to say thank you for allowing me to work with you. The Manifestation Package is my attempt to help you channel the reading, long after our session. I want your reading to shake your bones and fill your space with stars. I want your feral, untamed nature to howl and sing forth the new energy that is coming in.

If you choose to accept this package. You get everything you see in the photo. There is a candle to help shed light on any card you are fixated on, or perhaps do not understand in its entirety yet. The candle is also meant to set an intention, and send the light out. Even the flame itself can show energy. If the fire is bright and vibrant, your energy is strong. If the flame is moving, or hard to manifest, this could be where you place your intention, an attempt to make your inner light breathe again.

The little incense stick is to consecrate your space. I fully believe in the energy of a space, and incense has been used for thousands of years to consecrate and channel a sacred feeling. The incense is Jasmine, and this scent has been used for many different purposes. More than anything, I hope it helps you feel intimate with your situation, and not wary. I hope you can stand in the smoke and be knighted in your attempts to deepen the reading into your source.

The Tiger’s Eye is meant to symbolize power. It can help rid anxiety and promote positive action in your endeavors. I believe you are already strong, but a reminder is always nice. You can hold them and help use the intention from the candle to connect further into your reading. You can channel a certain card or image that you want to hold. Stones are the weight of the world. They will keep burdens that you and I cannot bear to carry. Whatever came up in your reading, you can place it or release it with these stones.

The tea is meant to create a needed pause for reflection. As you sit with your reading, I hope in the moments when you know and feel you can sink in a little deeper, the tea is there to help be a catalyst. Allow yourself the time and silence to reflect on your reading, and what feelings and thoughts it brings up. This is the best way, the only way, to deepen your relationship with your cards.

The bag itself can even become a sacred space. You can anoint it with oil, use potpourri, keep written or physical insights from your reading. Bags have long been used as a way to keep close what we hold dear. I wanted the bag to dual purpose for that reason.

What is not shown is the handouts I also send via email. One in particular has spaces for you to write down anything that surfaces from using your manifestation package. I, as a tarot reader, am here to hold the torch for you. I am not here to simply give a reading and then forget the energy in a poof. I want the reading to resonate long after our time together. My card is in each package, and I hope that through our space, you can go deeper in a safe way to what is needed most.

Thank you for all that you give wolf-darlings! If you would like to book a reading with my check out my Policies and Code of Ethics and my available spreads.

Stay wild wolflings!

Saturday Reflections: Scorpion and the 3 of Pentacles

Saturday 3.17.2018

“I saw the sun disappear / into mist as it reached / the horizon. And an egret / airborne, circling all / this time” ~ Running by Leslie Ullman

I don’t know about you, but much of my week is spent doing so many things, that I hardly get the time to take a look inward, to reflect on needed remnants from my inner low-tide. If I do get the time, I am hardly useful, except to remind my cats with a good scratch under the chin that they are why I do what I do. The weekends however, are when that silent wind sings out strong in me and I can say the words, much like singing to a forgotten, but beloved song.

I chose two cards to be the catalyst towards my introspection. The cards are the Scorpion and the 3 of Pentacles. One of the first things I look for in cards drawn is comparisons, or differences. The first thing I see in these cards is the difference in elements. The Scorpion card resembles the fire element. Pentacles are of the earth. In the real world, fire and earth do not mix. My stomping ground (Colorado) is constantly besieged with fire warnings in the summer because it is so dry. But fire does fertilize the soil, churns dormant seeds to sprout with the help of sun-fire and needed rain. This tells me that much of the energy will be a trial of fire. New growth can come, but it requires a sacrifice.

The Scorpion is the embodiment of the free-spirit. When this card is pulled it is a reminder to walk our path but hold some defenses. Not all those will admire the strength to walk your line, to live accordingly to your surroundings and spirit. The ones that do admire and hold to this are passionate in their own ways. They see the strength in individuality because they also walk their own fire. A scorpion can live in almost desolate climates, they can survive without food for periods of time, only as long as they have water. As long you have that which nourishes your source, you can survive.

However, the spirit of the Scorpion is one that also brings baggage. Scorpion souls carry the venom of the past, the pain of toxic situations and circumstances. In order to stand in our fire, we must only use that baggage when needed. We must use negative feelings with the attempt to try to heal, and forgive. Is there anything you are carrying that is no longer serving you? How could you turn this into growth? How can you forgive even those words were never mentioned by someone? This is not easy. I know I still struggle with this sometimes. I look to the past to learn, but in true honesty, I am looking to the past because I haven’t found my own healing. This is human. If you can relate, know that you are not alone. And if all I can do here with my business and these words is to state that I believe in you wolf-darling, then I can go to bed fulfilled.

The act of forgiveness and skillfully growing bleeds beautifully into the meaning of the 3 of Pentacles. The 3 of Pentacles brings many things to my mind. One is that of collaboration. The three pentacles from the rudimentary shape of something majestic. Another is the act of starting in different places, but all paths lead to a similar destination. Another is knowing which energy you can honestly give at that point in time. There are times where we do not have to hold the whole spectrum of color. We just have to put our energy out there in a way that contributes to the whole spectrum.

Find your inner free-spirit by surrounding yourself with those who will help bring out the positive or best in you. Become engaged with anything that helps you stand in your fire truthfully. For me, this is often found by just being in my home. When I am home I am reminded of where my growth has gotten me. I try to relieve the baggage by standing naked, surrounding myself with my words of love for my family and my creations. We cannot always start or hold the same energy as the day previously, but we can be honest and say that this is what we have to give today. We cannot retell the past. It is what it is. And even if we cannot start where we wish we could, we can be honest and say that. We do not have to reinvent the wheel of all our situations because of the baggage we carry. But we can be honest, walk our path, and move towards growth.

**Thank you so much for reading. Please let me know your thoughts. If you would like a reading, please check out my Policies and Code of Ethics, and my spread options. Thank you for being awesome, wolfling. My wolf-pack is where I am my honest and true free-spirit. Stay wild.**

Power Words for 2018

power words spread

 

Sometimes the best ideas are not ours. I was recently watching a YouTube video by Kelly-Ann Maddox, a tarot reader who I truly admire. She mentioned in her video that she uses power words to plan the year ahead. This immediately struck a cord with me. I organize in the present, but I have never been the best as scheduling and planning months down the road. I am most often found in the moment, organically moving through my circumstances. But I like the idea. I like the idea of trying to organize future thoughts into words, into power words. A schedule is hard to keep, but a word can be carried right in the back of my throat with no extra weight.

I chose three words as my power words: speak, protect, and navigate. I chose these words because they are words that I need the most. I need oomph in these areas. Using words that resonate power often means attaining power, finding what we need more of, or what is a current weakness that we need to overcome. I wanted to feel the rushing blood of purpose. With these words, I can prospect the hills and inside the skeleton of my own mountain to find that rich vein.

The first word is speak. This may seem odd because words are my first love. Writing is a worn fingerprint I gladly carry. I can say anything confidently when I write. Over the last couple of years though, speaking has been a much harder gem to mine. My throat has been barren, untouched by the choir of water. There were times that my speech would have provided the other two words: protection and navigation. Recently, there have been times where tensions arose and I subdued my opinion for civility. I kept silent over matters that were hurtful. My speech may not have affected the outcome, but it would have provided me an integral asset to myself, a foundation to stand on. My speech may not have subdued the tension, but it would have meant that I spoke my truth.

For this word, I chose the 5 of Swords. In the picture, there are five swords against a worm. This seems unnecessary. A worm is the totem creature for helplessness. They cannot see, and they cannot hear. They have no real defenses, save one. Sever the worm, and it still lives. This single, unassuming defense has rendered the sword useless. The slash hurt, but it did not kill. The worm will continue to move and live. I chose this card because standing up and speaking many times does not change the outcome. People will still question and think what they want, no matter the words of truth you give. But their words have fallen useless too. They cannot decimate, if my defense is to speak as well. Much like the worm, taking the words of others can hurt, but it doesn’t have to be the end. Going forward, I will choose to speak when needed. Not out of malice will I chose my words, but through courage. Courage to face a defense that may seem threatening. I will take a side, and believe in the defense of my words.

The second word is protect. This leaps off of the action of speaking. By speaking, I protect my core. I stand with and for myself. Protection is not hiding in the hole, hoping no one finds you. Protection is facing the threat, knowing exactly what I fear and why. Threats can affect our goals, and our desires. If we let that gray water (those that know this horror movie reference are awesome) into our mouths, we cannot fulfill our journey. Protecting ourselves means that down the road, we can have success.

There is perhaps no better picture in my deck than the Mother of Wands. Tucked around her eggs, the Mother of Wands is vigilant, ready to defend, and always protecting what is precious to her. Her eggs are the metaphor of manifestation. They are the embodiment of her light. What we manifest, or seek to create, is so precious to us that we must also be vigilant in protecting these fragile dreams. I chose protect because, much like the mother, protection means presence. It means to be and know what you stand for, despite all the threats that come. I have not always held the word with such reverence. For a while I was mute, unsure of what I wanted. Now I know better who I am and what I need. Protecting that light is key to fulfilling our highest selves.

The final word that I chose is navigate. As I mentioned before, over the last couple of years I have felt like I have been floating in a life raft, out of immediate danger, but not going anywhere. There was no direction. In fact, there was a lot of times where my time was filled with TV, unhealthy food, and a lack of books or conversation. I am not saying to kill your (or my) television. I am not saying that fast food now and then isn’t needed. But what is not needed is the void. The void where there is movement, but no direction.

For this word, I chose the 6 of Swords. The 6 of Swords is the travel to a new destination out of necessity. If we are not thriving were we are, and if nothing changes, we cannot effectively navigate our future. We cannot see through the storm if we stay beneath it. We must move. Navigation is the gateway to growth and new curiosity. Now, I am ready for school and am pointing myself in a new direction, much to the tarot’s credit. I am excited, not anxious. I am filling myself up with words and songs, instead of draining through emptiness. Navigation means there is much to look forward too, but only if we navigate ourselves onto the right path.

Again, I first got this idea from Kelly-Ann Maddox. Please go and check her out. Her content is amazing, and she has been a source of my inspiration and motivation. If you are like me, and planning and scheduling is not a great fit, pick a few words. Write them down. Place them in your pocket, in your wallet, or near your sacred space. Choose words that you need more of in your life. What do you need some power in? What words hold that power? These are mine, and I will hold them carefully as I traipse through 2018.

**Thank you for reading. Please let me know what words are your powers words. If you would like a personal tarot reading, please look to my options and email me at teaandtombstones@gmail.com. Stay wild howlers!**

Letting go: 7 of Cups and Tatsuya

12182017

 

It feels like the closing of energies and affections begin before the actual dates click down and down. As we get closer to the end of December, what is going to happen in the next couple of weeks perhaps is just going to happen. Maybe this time, full of chaos and height, is actually the perfect time to find some peace of mind. Is there a point where it actually benefits us to stop dwelling on what can be changed or tweaked for the final weeks of December? Is this the time that we should bring in consideration and nod ourselves towards quieting and not gripping?

I would argue this possibility. Sometimes we continue to plunge ourselves into the pressure of creating. We force ourselves to do more in these final weeks that we actually forgo the space to just sit, or (dare I say it) observe with distance. December is a month of leading. Everything is planned, detailed out, purchased and outlined. There is much beauty in this. Memories of sparkling holidays are a gift many do or cannot have. But the strain follows quickly behind. Moments are priceless and fatigue is temporary, but I cannot keep out the thought that even in these frantic weeks, we can still find some control and some release.

There can be a bounty in finding small releases, and focusing more on intentions. With the New Moon energy circling, this is an ample time to reflect and dream. Not all will pan out. Not all intentions are meant to. But as December blurs into the new year, it is a good time to ponder and protect what is sacred at this festive time.

The first card drawn at random is the 7 of Cups. The 7 of Cups tantalizes and draws us in with all the different cups to choose from. In the background is a dark sky with a crescent moon. Now is the time to look into what intentions you wish to follow, even if for a stroll. What actions can you pursue without burning yourself out? Now is a time when everyone is on the brink of burning out regardless, so what actions will keep you centered and secure?

The plethora of possibilities shows that options can be good. They are worth exploring, even if it is only through creative outlets or communication. What is not good is trying to chase each option because they all possess a new, fertile ground. Take a look at what you want to release, or what you want to bring into control. What needs control? What needs expansion? And what just needs to be snuffed out? The 7 of Cups engages our emotional fantasies and options. Already a heightened time, these proclivities can drag us into more emotional distress. This a card about balance. This a time for balance. Find your intentions and draw out the flame, but do not constantly build on something that emotionally is not ready, and may never be.

How we can either help quiet or strengthen these intentions is with the help of Tatsuya. This oracle card means that through all of these, whatever is released or held dear, we must be warriors for ourselves, and the new purposes we beseech. Standing on some of the emotional precipices, we may be surrounded by many, but if they drain our energy we must walk alone. If this time is beautiful, we must champion the space with conviction to engage and perhaps even sacrifice. If this time is hard, we must remind ourselves to not face the dragon, but forge our own flames.

However the end of December meets you, take control over what you can. This could be as small as planning space in the day to reflect and give in to the need for quiet moments and loud thoughts. It could be as big as protecting yourself against certain plans or people that the holiday may be trying to bring together. Release and control. Look at what options you have, and how they serve your incoming year. Have the courage to do what you need, even if it means being scoffed by others. This year has been turbulent, but in the eye of the hurricane there is calm. How can you get into the center?

Cards of the week: 8 of Pentacles and the Wild Huntress

20170926_130603
“Besides, the world isn’t split into good people and death eaters. We’ve got both light and dark inside us.” ~ Sirius Black

Now that we have taken a moment to look inward to gaze at the context of our guides, and how they gently shaped our forms with metaphors that felt like fingers, it is time to look at what we are invested in, and what needs our attention. There is a duality in each of us. We carry both light and shadow. In order to fully accomplish any task set before us, to truly meet anything with integrity, we must first become wholesome in our extremes.

The 8 of Pentacles is all about our skills, and how we can effectively finesse something from the bare bones of raw needs to nourish and sustain ourselves. Each of us weaves our own lives. Our web would not function if we placed all of our attention to one side, and neglected other. It would fail to nourish us, fail to sustain ourselves against the threats of others. The web we weave defines our survival. We can only be authentically whole. If we dry ourselves of desire or conscious, we will always be weaker, unable to strengthen our structures. That is where the Wild Huntress comes in.

She contains both light and purity. She fights for those who need it; she stands up to the ones who would wreck and ruin the magic of many. But this comes at a price. To effectively create this change, she must step into the shadows. She must think and feel as a hunter in order to protect the hunted. She may be ostracized by those who only see the darkness, who refuse to understand its purpose. But in her organic wholeness, she is free. She is unchained by others who expect her to stay in line. As a trailblazer in the shadows, she makes more room for the light.

The 8 of Pentacles and the Wild Huntress both speak to finesse and entirety. The little details, the small tracks, and traces of skill are what allow the completion of ourselves. When we fine-tune both our shadows and our light, we can achieve great things. We are not one without the other. We cannot be only light or only shadow. To be that way would unhinge us, send us into the preserve as nothing more than prey. To be only light would indicate conformity. To be only shadows would be self-serving. But, a combination between the two would let us be free to live well and to not feel guilty when we need to sever ties with what is no longer serving us.

Cards of the week: 4 of Swords and The Elder

20170919_095055

 

“I know you wait for me / at a place I am always seeking. / You are as real as the changelings / in my favorite books, have the tenderness / of the sea on a calm day, and all / the patience of the long invisible.” ~ Linda Pastan In an Unaddressed Envelope

As the seasons change, and the air becomes chilled with the bones of harvesting, it is a good time to take a step back and revisit ourselves. This is an important time to remember what guidance has brought us here. The small voices in our heads produce such a shattering echo. These voices are the ones that found us in a quiet corner of a loud world. They could be familiar, soft as a mother’s hum, or as wild as the sound of trees. Whatever stirred these voices towards our small, dark chambers in not important. As the landscape is woven into gold, it is a good time to reflect on these voices with a calm vibration.

The sweet lamb is completely unencumbered by the dangerous swords that loom so close, almost whispering the strength in their flowing edges. Instead of being perturbed, the precious little lamb channels her vision inward to her third eye, to that space where she can find her higher perceptions. No longer is she the lamb led to slaughter. Now she dwells fully in her space, righteous in her redemption. The swords may hang above, but she wields the more dangerous weapon.

This subduing of the nagging ego will serve well as we take on the serious task of following our true path. We are beseeched by the voices and guides that have watched over us, tracking each move. As we start to listen more deeply to those ancient councils, our mental space will be more open. The tree does not need hands to extend the invitation of the sweet souls that dwell in these branched heavens.

The goal for this week should try to be achieving a connection to the guides. This does not have to be a physical conversation, although it could. Much has been lost in the way of words. The goal is about achieving a revelation, a lyric that has been spoken internally is now drawn out to full poetry. This beautiful symphony of wisdom is now a heartbeat, a rhythmic engagement in the core. This pulse connects you more deeply to what has followed you like a gray shadow, showing you the direction of the sun.

In the shadows, these energies can lead to some heavy extremes. On one hand, the experience of this connection can be so rewarding that it becomes hard to process voice from others, from those not in our head or tribe. This connection can lead to arrogance or defiance. It is important to remember that balance between yourself and what is around you. It is all important to remember that this process can be hard. But the moment when you feel like shutting all those voices in the dark is when you need to listen to them most.

The Dark Moon is here and in Virgo. Pay attention to the details, the soft love given this week from your guides. Now is the time to start looking towards new potentials. In a world of constant buzzing, but no words, it is important to take some time to find stillness, to find the foundation of those who have helped get you here. What do your spirit guides look like? This is the week to pay attention. Everything is moving forward, and if we do not heed the lessons, many things will be forgotten or lost.
