This weeks randomly selected card is the Wheel of Fortune, which is a mystical, mysterious card. It speaks of fate, chance and destiny and the weaving of the intricate tapestry of life.Often the twists and turns of fate can feel random and arbitrary. But what if there is inherent meaning in everything, and interconnection between the complex patterns woven into the Universe? Just because these relationships are too tangled to unpick doesn’t mean that they don’t exist and give a deeper meaning to our existence.
Life is a delicate balance and we all experience joy and pain as an integral part of our journey. It is vital to embody the wisdom of the owl and know that all is in constant flux. The trick is to try and achieve balance and inner harmony no matter what is happening in our lives. We judge things as good or bad, but how do we really know until further down the road? The Wheel of Fortune expresses the truth that everything happens for a reason, and there is always a lesson to be learned from our experiences. There is nothing to fear, as depicted by the bright stars twinkling in the night sky. All we can do is embrace it all and use our intuition (symbolised by the owl and the crescent moon) to navigate any stormy waters. It won’t see us go wrong.
The Wheel of Fortune can indicate a ‘stuck’ energy where we need to be reminded that positivity moves us forward whereas negativity keeps us tangled and stuck. We must keep in mind when we are feeling trapped and stuck that the wheel is constantly turning. Change is always happening and things will get better. It is only a matter of time until the daytime comes back around again as everything is cyclical.
The archetype of this card puts me in mind of the quotation
“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
This weeks randomly drawn card from the beautiful Wild Unknown Tarot is the Six of Pentacles.
Help and resources could be received from unexpected quarters, and at just the right moment this week. This could be financial assistance, but it could equally be someone offering their time or advice.
Alternatively, it could be that you have something that someone else requires, and are able to give it freely to help this individual out of a tight spot.
Then again, it could signify an unequal relationship where one person has all the economic power and the other feels a sense of subservience, dependency and lack of autonomy. Sometimes assistance is given freely and willingly, but often it feels as if there are very definite strings attached, and a feeling of being manipulated or coerced by a powerful benefactor. This is a highly unpleasant feeling of being controlled or beholden to another who it seems is pulling your strings.
Sometimes when this card appears it can also indicate that a time of greater prosperity and growth is coming up. This could be the perfect moment to take control of your own resources, and manage them prudently and judiciously to ensure your future independence and self-sufficiency. This feeling of being able to stand on your own two feet will give you a sense of freedom and autonomy to direct your own life on your terms.
I hope you have found this weeks reading useful!

Today’s card, the Five of Wands shows five sticks which look as if they have been tossed up into the air and allowed to fall wherever they may.
This week the best laid plans may descend into chaos and confusion. There could be a metaphorical “spanner in the works” where everything comes tumbling down leading to a sense of disorientation and disarray.
Alternatively it could be that our energies feel scattered and random so that it’s almost impossible to decide on the best way forward at this time. Others adding their disparate views and ideas to the mix may engender conflict or confrontation leading to the feeling that it’s all “gone to pot” with no way to repair the damage.
Sometimes the only thing to do in this circumstance is to wait for the dust to settle before we can get a handle on the best way to proceed. This is one of those experiences that needs to happen in certain situations to shake us out of our comfort zone, and maybe the tried and tested way that we have always previously approached a particular issue.
Although the ensuing pandemonium and unruliness are a nightmare to deal with, often when our plans go “belly up” it can, with hindsight turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Once the landscape has returned to a place of calm and normality our world can look very different……and often for the better.
This weeks randomly selected card is Judgement from The Wild Unknown deck.
What looks like a beautiful white dove hovers at the top of the card, emanating rays of light.
Below the dove, black coloured birds or even bats rise up towards the outstretched wings of the almost angelic looking presence.
There is an overwhelming feeling of peace, freedom and redemption contained within this card as the birds appear to emerge from the tangled mass of darkness and heed the call from above.
This week it is time to heed this call in our own lives. The time has come to leave behind the difficulties and disappointments of the past and move forwards towards a more promising and uplifting future.
Anything that is holding you back from making peace with yourself and others can now be gently released into the light. Even if there are regrets and mistakes in your past that you have struggled to let go of, the Judgement card signals that you are forgiven and accepted into the protection and safety of a higher power (whatever this means to you).
Any sense of not deserving or being worthy of freedom, peace of mind and redemption are utterly false. The dove on this card says that everyone is forgiven and free to rise up into this magical place of peace, love and wisdom. The dove makes no judgement and welcomes all comers with the same open arms (wings).
The slate is wiped clean and we are free to break free from the murky recesses of the past and begin again….clean, purified and absolved.
This weeks randomly drawn card from The Wild Unknown deck is the Father of Swords.
This week it will be important to get your facts straight and stay alert to the truth of a situation. Don’t get swept away by fanciful thoughts or allow passions and tempers to flare. Remain rational and weigh things up carefully and logically before coming to a decision. Keep a cool head and be discerning in your choices.
If you are normally a person who relies predominantly on intuition you may find that this approach falters this week. Try weighing up the pros and cons of a situation carefully, as this method may yield better results. Don’t rush headlong into anything without carefully considering the longer term implications and consequences.
This week you may find yourself coming up against a person who has a very different way of operating in the world. They may appear overly aloof, cold and controlling, but perhaps they can teach us something which will enable us to achieve better results? Perhaps we can take on board some advice or instruction which may help us in our life this week.
Until next time,
This weeks randomly drawn card is the Page of Swords from The Starchild Tarot.
When this card appears it usually means that a new project of venture is on the horizon which fills you with a sense of enthusiasm and passion. This is something exciting which you are itching to get your teeth into. Often there will be some kind of risk involved, but this is one of those occasions where you shouldn’t be afraid to take a leap of faith as you have the energy and potential to pull this off!
Alternatively this card could refer to a person who may make an appearance in your life this week, or it could be a message that you will achieve the best outcome by taking on the character traits of the Page of Swords. This person is highly perceptive and discerning. Nothing escapes them, and they are known for their sense of vision and clarity. They are able to absorb information like a sponge, and can also process and understand complex ideas and concepts. This week, like the Page of Swords, you will achieve your best results if you adhere to a strict code of truth, straightforwardness and direct, honest communication. The more convoluted things become the more you will tie yourself up in knots, so keep a sense of simple clarity in all your dealings.
A more negative manifestation of this energy may be found in someone who is full of great ideas, none of which ever come to fruition. Sometimes the Page of Swords type can be swept along on a wave of wild enthusiasm, but their plans never see the light of day as they are not prepared to put in the practical steps and work, to make their vision a reality. In order to manifest anything we need both the spark of inspiration and the relevant action.
I hope this has been helpful Earth Spiriters….
Until next week,
This weeks randomly drawn card is The Hierophant from The Starchild Tarot.
This card often appears when there is something we need to learn, and the teacher miraculously appears in our life at just the right moment. In this context it doesn’t necessarily mean that the teaching we receive will be from a formal source or expert. It could just as easily be a snippet of conversation we overhear; a chat with someone that hits the nail on the head regarding some information that is shared; or the lyrics of a song drifting through the ether with exactly the words of wisdom we needed to hear.
The Hierophant can also point to the teacher within….our in-tuition. Listen carefully for that “still small voice”, your inner GPS. Be guided by your internal sat nav….it won’t see you go wrong.
In a more negative manifestation it could signify an authoritative, overbearing person. Someone domineering and pedantic who will run roughshod over your own inner knowing and direction if you allow them to. Take back your own power and ability to direct your life. Listen to your inner wisdom and have confidence in your own ideas and insights. Don’t be afraid to speak your truth clearly and directly, and follow your own path.
Have a brilliant week!
Until next time,
