I’ve recently been working with the Wildwood Tarot and came across a great spread to do when you are getting to know a new deck. Below is my interview of The Wildwood.
1) Tell me about yourself. What is your most important characteristic.
I drew The Hooded Man but The Pole Star fell out of my hand in the exact place I was about to place The Hooded Man so I decided to keep it as an additional message.
I have hidden lessons to teach and guide you on this inner journey in The Wildwood. I will shine my light so that you won’t get lost thus revealing parts of yourself that you didn’t know existed. The journey in the forest can be dark and mysterious sometimes frightening but I have ancient wisdom and knowledge to guide you. You will not be alone. Working with me will also be part of a larger spiritual journey for you. This is what will help you really resonate with my lessons.
2) What Are Your Strengths As A Deck?
Eight of Vessels – Rebirth
I am connected to nature’s deeper rhythms and understand that every ending is also a new beginning. I can show you your connection to the cycle of life, the changing of the seasons, how the cycle of life, death, and rebirth is reflected in your being. My cup runneth over.
3) What are your weaknesses as a deck?
The Forest Lovers
You will fall in love my images and may lose sight of deeper meaning hidden within me. You may find it difficult to separate your own emotional attachments to my images when reading for other people.
4) What are you here to teach me?
Two of Vessels – Attraction
How fire can be transmuted into water. We all have animal instincts. Releasing yourself to this will fill the cup of emotions. This relationship between us is the beginning of deep polaric bond between the two of us.
5) How can I best collaborate with you?
Three of Stones Creativity
By using my messages to make something new, build something, create. I won’t fail you. I will ground you, protect you, support you and enable you in your creative life. Start by making me a special bag or box so you can keep me close.
6)What is the potential outcome of our working relationship?
10 of Stones – Home
I will bring you comfort and security and solace. I will connect you to your true, authentic, self. Take me with you wherever you go and I will always show you the way home.
Not really sure about The Forest Lovers and how that might be a limitation of the deck? Any ideas?
