mine: into the wild

Original spread post by @violetwitchcraft.

I bought The Wild Wood Tarot deck about a year ago. It wasn’t until after it arrived that I felt strongly that I was not ready to use it yet. This week has been a lot for me, and I am currently on the cusp of a big decision. When I saw the “Am I Being a Dick” spread, I overwhelmingly felt that it was time to find my deck.

This spread could not have been more accurate. I felt incredibly in tune with my self, the cards, and the universe. I feel corny saying so, especially considering this is my first reading, but I believe that the cards I pulled are all hugely significant. And I found my answer: I’m not being a dick. My reaction is justified. I am sure of my decision.

I feel that it will be too personal to write out my interpretation of the cards here, but I think this will be the perfect opportunity to start a tarot journal. I’m excited to continue learning about this, and I am thrilled with this beautiful deck.

The signs as Oscar Wilde quotes

Aries: We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Taurus: You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.

Gemini: I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying.

Cancer: Memory… is the diary that we all carry about with us.

Leo: I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

Virgo: There are only two kinds of people who are really fascinating: people who know absolutely everything, and people who know absolutely nothing.

Libra: Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

Scorpio: The truth is rarely pure and never simple.

Sagittarius: I can resist everything except temptation.

Capricorn: There is no sin except stupidity.

Aquarius: To expect the unexpected shows a thoroughly modern intellect.

Pisces: Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.
