Discovering the Wild Unknown

I mentioned in my post on Monday that I was going to be starting a new series. But for those of you who might have missed that post, I thought I’d talk a little bit about it.

Since I began researching The Wild Unknown Tarot, I found a few people who felt that the meanings of the cards were unintuitive, which did put me off for some time. I wanted a deck that didn’t involve human representation that had me look at the cards in relation to the natural world.

I wanted a deck that would put me in the position of a non-human animal to see the world, and thus enhance my understading of the world as a whole and of the card the animal was representing.

However, since having The Wild Unknown Tarot (TWU), I’ve spent time meditating on the cards, and I actually do find that the animals correspond nicely.

So I wanted to share my meditations with you.

The purpose of this is two-fold:

  1. To help people understand TWU
  2. To give examples of how to journal about a card during a daily card draw or when getting to know about a deck

To achieve the latter, I’ll be pulling a card daily from TWU, meditating and journaling about it, and then posting my journal entry. This will be straight out of my own personal tarot journal, and will have minimum editing added to it.

I won’t, however repeat cards. This series will only last the length of the deck.

Also, this will begin May 1st, partially to replace my 30-Day Tarot Writing Challenge Slot, but also because May 1st marks Beltaine–a day of fertility and creativity. Since my series, ‘Discovering The Wild Unknown‘ will be my creative take, and will follow my passion of Tarot and in-depth self-study, I feel these two events to be approptiately coupled.

I’ve been looking forward to this series, and I hope you’ll enjoy it too.
