Tarot Reading with Crystals and The Wild Unknown Tarot for February 22nd
Tarot Reading with Crystals and The Wild Unknown Tarot
for February 22nd
Today, we are doing a daily reading with crystals. I am using The Wild Unknown tarot deck but you can whatever deck you have to do your own reading if you’d like. The instructions are listed below the reading.
I pull a three card spread after shuffling the deck nine times. The first card drawn represents our physical outlook for the day. The second card drawn represents our mental outlook for the day. While the third card drawn represents our emotional outlook for the day.
The best crystal is then matched up to the chosen card. It will either augment the good energy brought or offer solutions to possible obstacles set in the way.
Wheel of Fortune
destiny, change of course
Whether day or night, the Wheel of Fortune is always in motion. This turning of day to night, night to day is one manifestation of the Wheel of Fortune that we are all intimately familiar with. On a symbolic level, this can also show our fate changing from clarity to confusion, success to failure, and infinite other twists.
When this card appears, the eye of the wheel is fixed upon you. Whatever happens to you during this time know that it is bringing you closer to one’s purpose.
This is a card that is representative of a change of course. Have you been physically stagnant or extremely, if not overly, physical? This card signifies that today is a day to change it up. If you haven’t been physical lately, today is the day to get moving. If you have been very physical, today is a day for rest and relaxation. Overall, this change of pace is going to be extremely beneficial to your overall wellbeing.
Crystal to Use
Known as the Garnet of the Sun, Spessartine is one of the lesser-known and rarer varieties of Garnet. Its energizing warmth radiates in shades of dark gold, orange, scarlet and deep red. The energies of Spessartine vibrate at a high rate, imparting a willingness to help others and strengthening the heart. It enhances analytical processes and the rational mind.
Spessartine also stimulates aspects of creative abilities and energies, encouraging one to take action toward one’s dreams, visions and goals. Spessartine is used emotionally to activate the analytical processes of the mind, to alleviate fears and provide confidence to change one’s life.
Protection, Stability, The Father
The Emperor is the father, the counterpart to the Empress.He represents the side of you that is protective, decisive, and truly stable. He brings clarity of mind and this, in turn, leads to actions or decisions.
This card suggests reconnecting with the part of you that stands strong and tall and knows just what to do.The Emperor shows us the power of structure and consistency. His energy is firmly rooted, sensible and logical.
Your mental outlook is clear and focused today. Others are not going to bring you down because you are strong and confident with your choices. With clarity of mind, comes extreme confidence. Today is a good day to pursue endeavors that you have been hesitant about due to self-esteem issues. Take that chance to change and be happy!
Crystal to Use
Sunstone is an abundance stone. It encourages independence and originality, is inspirational in revealing talents, and attracts fame and unexpected prosperity. Wear Sunstone to feel alive and enthusiastic. Sunstone provides a source of strength if you are dependent on others emotionally, or have suffered the sudden loss of a partner. It helps alleviate fearfulness and stress, and protects against those who drain your energies or finances.
It is a Stone of Leadership – of personal power, freedom, and expanded consciousness. Truly reflecting the qualities of Light, it brings openness, benevolence and warmth, strength, mental clarity, and the willingness and ability to bestow blessings upon others.
Known as a joyful stone, Sunstone inspires the nurturing of self in order to be of service to others. It restores the enjoyment of life, good nature and provides a sense of abundance.
Father of Swords
Like the rest of the Swords family, the father has the gift of perception. He has a distinct ability to remove himself emotionally from a situation and see all of the angles.He is therefore respected by others, who usually describe him as fair or just. He’s responsible with deep ties to his family.
Everything about him – from his piercing gaze to his technicolor sword – conveys knowledge, authority and mastery. His actions are always measured carefully and taken with full consciousness.He is capable of sorting out complex, multi-faceted layers of information and finding a way to easily tie them together.
Emotionally, you are going to be very perceptive today about what is going on around you. If you are in a position of authority, it is time to “own it” and make decisions with conviction. Analyzing situations going on around you will help you make better decisions that benefit you and others around you. When you are considerate to others and their feelings, they will trust and respect you.
Crystal to Use
Aquamarine relaxes speakers to a stage of consciousness in which they are fully aware of their own truths, wisdom and feelings, and able to articulate them with clarity and conviction. It also allows one to speak clearly and without anger in difficult situations. Aquamarine accelerates the intellectual reasoning processes and enhances the ability for rapid response. It makes one unconquerable through learning, not only about the physical world, but about oneself. It bestows perseverance, discipline and light heartedness.
A stone of natural justice, Aquamarine utilizes compromise and negotiation, and gives quiet courage and clear reasoned words in confrontational situations.Aquamarine is a stone of empowerment, for men and women alike. It helps in the realization that not all power comes from force. There is also power in aligning with the yielding, resilient vitality of life, and in promoting truthful and compassionate communication.
If you would like to pull your own daily cards with your own tarot deck, you can follow along with the simple instructions below! If you need assistance with which crystals you should use, please feel free to leave a comment below or post a message in our forum.
- Once you have your deck ready and in front of you, you must shuffle it any number of times you see fit. Some shuffle until they feel compelled to stop while others count a specific number.
- Spread the cards out how you see fit. Some people like to just set the deck down and cut certain cards out, while others will spread the deck out across the table and select cards that jump out to them.
- Before you pick your cards from the deck, take a few deep breaths first. Try to relax your body and quiet your mind.
- Focus on the question you are asking. In this reading we are asking for our daily outlook so try and focus on what the daily will bring. Think about how your body will feel, how your mind will operate, and how your heart will function. The more successfully you can relax your body and clear other thoughts from your mind, the more insightful and helpful the reading will be.
- Select three cards from the deck once you are ready.
- The first card drawn represents our physical outlook for the day. The second card drawn represents our mental outlook for the day. While the third card drawn represents our emotional outlook for the day.
