Deck: The Wild Unknown Tarot
*all interpretations are mine
The moon moves out of Aries this afternoon around 5:30- but I thought a reading for Tuesday and Aries would be nice. So we have Strength for Tuesday as it is one of the cards associated with the day- The Emperor for Aries, and the Ace of Wands- because Wands are associated with Tuesday, and the number 1 is associated with Aries. There’s also a little piece of raw lapis lazuli for our horned friend 😉
As always: from L-R
The Querent (you)
The Present, (what’s going on right now)
The Influences/Outcome (what can or will be.)
- Strength: Balance. Strength. Willpower. Patience. Success 💰♥💰
The lion is an age-old symbol of strength. It speaks to fierceness and unstoppability. It stands for pride and is a universal badge that says “Don’t fuck with me or my people.” However…..a lion’s social group is called a pride. If you take the previous statement, and substitute the word people for pride- it becomes “Don’t fuck with me or my pride.” There’s a subtle reminder in there. People will say “You are who you hang out with” and that’s kinda true, so if the type of people you hang out with aren’t holding up to the standards of what makes you proud, it’s time to find a new pride. A better one 👪🔮👪
Seeing this card can also be a gentle reminder that we’re totally animals, and with all that patience and control associated with this card, maybe it’s time to indulge the animal side a little as well. Have a few drinks, lock yourself in the bathroom with your s/o and get a little wild, go for a hike or a drive to somewhere nature-y and eat something with your hands, play in the mud.
You deserve it 🖤🦁🖤
- The Emperor: Mars (or male) energy. Structure. Leadership. Obstinateness. ♂🐏♂
Oh god, I get daddy issues just looking at this guy sometimes. The Emperor is totally the Father of all Fathers in the tarot. He is Patriarchy. He is structure. He is so convinced that he is right all the time that he will sometimes forget to keep an eye on what else is new and developing, start to fuck up, and he will still stubbornly refuse to catch up with the times. Don’t be that guy. I mean, if you want to be the good parts, that’s cool, but try to stay flexible. It’s the downfall of many.
- Ace of Wands: Cleverness. Creativity. Enthusiasm. Beginnings. Fertility.
Think of our Ace as the antithesis to the sometimes stuffy side of our Emperor. This is the very representation of new. Creative ideas and endeavors are encouraged!! Use this card’s appearance in your life to give you the sign you’ve been waiting for to speak up about your ideas at work or in the home. Tell your spouse you’ve always hated that bookshelf, and make them one you’ve been thinking about- to replace it!! Let the creativity flow!!! Now is as good of a time as any, really.
