Healing with The Wild Unknown Tarot and Green Fluorite
Green Fluorite is our crystal of the week here in the Crystal Inner Circle! So, here in the Crystal & The Tarot Community we are going to discuss where to find it in the Tarot. We will be using The Wild Unknown Tarot. We’ll talk about the cards it’s connected to as well as the healing benefits this beautiful stone can offer.
Before we jump right in, let’s first discuss some brief history and uses of this collectible crystal.
BRIEF HISTORY OF FLUORITE
Fluorite was known as “fluorspar” in ancient times and its use dates back thousands of years. It was valued as a stone of enlightenment, encouraging the stimulation of electrical charges in the brain. This “crystallized light”, as it was commonly called, was said to bring light into the brain. Because of its many colorful varieties, it was also called the “home of the rainbow”.
Purple Fluorite was used by the Chinese to thwart evil spirits and its clusters were believed to be “dream makers”.
Ancient Egyptians used Fluorite for carving scarabs and statues of the gods, while green and other fluorites were carved into vessels by the Chinese and, at times, used as a substitute for Jade. The Romans, Celts, Britons, French, Germans, American Indians and others all prized the beauty of Fluorite, carving it into figurines, deity statues, art, totems, amulets and talismans, as well as decorative bowls, cups, dishes and vases.
Hydrofluoric acid formed from Fluorite has been used for etching glass since 1670, and in the 1700’s was diluted with water to a near infinitesimal degree and used for matters of health. This mixture was reported to alleviate symptoms of kidney disease, shrink varicose veins to half their size, grow fresh hair on a bald head, and cure sores on the fingers or within the nostrils.

GREEN FLUORITE IN THE TAROT
As you may know, certain Angels are connected to each tarot card. Here, we look at the Angels that prefer Green Fluorite and their connected tarot card.
If you are looking to connect to one of the below cards (or the Angel associated with it), placing a Green Fluorite on top of it and then meditating, or using it during a reading, can be very beneficial.
The Angel, Raphael, is the Master of the 0 tarot card, “The Fool.”
The fool is ready to fly. His young wings ache for flight, and with a single step he leaves behind the comfort of the nest to begin the journey through the Major Arcana. Is he ready? Will he fall? This is a card about beginnings. It points to the side of you that is spontaneous, excited, naive, and inexperienced. Others may doubt your abilities. Be ready to be called “the fool.” Be ready to fall. No matter what people say about you, this is your journey- and it’s already begun.
The Fool is numbered 0, the number of unlimited potential, and does not actually have a specific place in the sequence of the Tarot cards. The Fool can come either at the beginning of the Major Arcana or at the end.
This Tarot card shows the highest potential for your life, reaching a state of renewal and new beginnings, where each day is an adventure and each moment is lived to the fullest. The Fool card represents the beginning of all creativity and a desire to accomplish new goals (or to, at least, start the process of working towards those goals). The Fool indicates that anything can happen and the opportunities are just waiting to be taken advantage of.
In a Tarot reading, the Fool represents the need to set forth on a new journey, one that is completely unknown and will take you to uncharted territories. The Fool is all about new experiences, personal growth, development and adventure. The Fool Tarot card asks you to take a ‘leap of faith’ and to trust in the Universe in that if you begin a new journey, you will find success. This Fool lives a carefree life, free from worry and anxiety. He does not seem to mind if he does not really know what lies ahead.
Self -Empowerment, Action
The Angel, Raphael, is the Master of the 1st Tarot Card, “The Magician.”
The Magician is a card of boundless, expansive energy. Whereas many of the Major Arcana deal with stillness or aspects of the mind, this card is all about “action, action, action!” It’s time to see yourself as the wildcat- embrace his speed, grace, and abilities. Don’t be afraid to begin. You have the power of all four elements within your reach. Now is the time to use them.
The Magician is the bridge between the world of the spirit and the world of humanity.The cheetah, a notoriously proud and alert animal,is representative of the Magician. On his chest is a lemniscate symbol, or infinity symbol, representing eternity and the infinite nature of all life and all matter. In front of this proud wildcat are the the four suits of the deck – sword, pentacle, cup and wand. These symbolise the appropriate use of mind, heart, body and soul in the process of manifestation. His front paws rest on the pentacle, suggesting his ability to take raw materials and create something tangible. The orange and yellow rays beaming down on him indicate vitality and action.
The Magician Tarot card typically appears in a Tarot reading at a time in your life when you have the creative power and energy to create a new life cycle for yourself. You have the ability to take the power of the Universe and manifest your desires. The Magician Tarot card suggests that a situation has been (or soon will be) presented to you that has all the inherent components to allow the manifestation of your desires. Those desires may be spiritual (fire), physical (earth), emotional (water), or mental (air), and are each aligned with the four elements of the Tarot. You have the ability to make it happen!
The Angel, Chadaqiel, is the Master of the 11th Tarot Card, “Justice.”
With tails entwined, two cats look directly at you…waiting for you to choose between them. Which is right and which is wrong? The Justice card implies a weight or heaviness surrounding a choice you have to make. Now is not the time to shun the concept of divine balance, or karma. All of your choices affect your life, and sometimes the lives of those around you, both now and in the future.
These two felines bring to mind the symbolism of yin and yang, feminine and masculine, light and dark, black and white. They are in the center of the card, in opposite sides of the blade of a sword, representing balance between the two counterparts. The sword above the diamond is a reminder that decisions must be made even when there isn’t a “black and white” answer. The point of the blade rests directly above the center of the diamond, showing that true Justice takes into account all the complexities and nuances of a situation. The base of the sword is elegantly decorated. It’s positioning, high above the cats, suggest that the power of the blade comes from a higher, spiritual realm.
Justice represents a conscious awareness that your decisions and actions have long-term consequences and your present and future circumstances are most likely a result of these decisions and actions. At the same time, Justice shows that your actions in the future can be changed by a lesson learned in the present situation. You cannot become honest without extending that honesty to yourself and others. Put simply, the Justice card represents justice, fairness, truth and the law. As an outcome, the Justice card indicates that the fairest decision will be made. You are being called to account for your actions and be judged accordingly.
The Angel, Metatron, is the Master of the 20th Tarot Card, “Judgement.”
The word “judgement” conjures up fear and guilt in many people. This card, however, concerns itself with another aspect of this word- seeking the truth. No more blaming yourself or others, no more excuses. Now is the time for forgiveness and personal freedom. This card asks you to rise up and let pettiness and fear fall below you. Expand your wings and be reborn. What a relief it will be.
An angelic-looking white bird, possibly a dove, draws attention from the upper portion of the card. Rays of light surround his outstretched wings. He has a serene, welcoming, all-encompassing energy. A flock of small black bats are rising to meet the open-winged embrace of the white bird. The bats are now ready to awaken, be more fully alive, to respond to a higher calling. The angelic bird welcomes the bats without discernment. He seems to say “Come on up. I welcome everyone. Your past mistakes are in the past. You are forgiven. You can begin again. You can choose to soar into the light, and I will embrace you.”
The Judgement card suggests that you have had a recent epiphany or an ‘awakening’ where you have come to a realisation that you need to live your life in a different way and you need to be true to yourself and your needs. You have opened yourself up to a new possibility – to lead a fulfilling life that serves your higher needs and that offers inspiration and hope to others. You feel as though you have had a ‘calling’ in life, and you are getting much closer to the point where you need to take action. Something that was lying dormant within you, some unconscious knowledge or truth is finally being awakened and brought into the light.
Vivid Dreams and Fears
The Angel, Vakhabiel, is the Master of the 18th Tarot Card, “The Moon.”
In many ways, the Moon card encompasses the idea of The Wild Unknown. It is the shadow realm, the place where dreams, fears, and mysteries are born. Much darkness can linger here, and if you aren’t careful, this can lead to periods of anxiety and self-doubt..almost as though you’ve lost your way in a house of mirrors. Many great artists have roamed this inner landscape. It’s where imagination and creativity drift freely upon the midnight air.
The moon shows a nighttime world of imagination and psychic exploration. This can be a stunning, fantastical and psychedelic experience. But it can also become confusing, misleading or bewildering. This is an untamed landscape where anything is possible. In the faint light of the moon, we question what is real and what is imagined, what is beautiful fantasy and what is pure madness.
The Moon often represents your ‘shadow’ self. The shadow is a psychological term introduced by the late Swiss psychiatrist Dr. Carl G. Jung, and is a part of the unconscious mind consisting of repressed weaknesses, shortcomings and instincts. “Everyone carries a shadow,” Jung wrote, “and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is.” The Moon calls your attention to your shadow, becoming consciously aware of any tendencies to project fear and anxiety onto your external surroundings, and turning it around into more positive and constructive energy.
The Moon is a card of illusion and deception, and therefore often suggests a time when something is not as it appears to be. Vigilance and clear perception will be necessary to find that which is hidden before it is too late. Guard against accepting illusions as they may cause an error in your judgement.
The Angel, Shimshiel, is the Master of the 19th Tarot Card. “The Sun.”
Imagine for a moment that you’re soaking in the warm rays of the sun. It feels nourishing and healing, all your aches and pains just fade away. The Sun card brings this amazing energy into your life. Vitality and health abound, while you feel assurance and clarity in all you do. Spend some extra time outside today., be grateful for the radiance of the sun and the life force it gives all creatures.
The splendor of the sun is a life-affirming sight, especially after the darkness of the previous card, “The Moon.” The sun always rises, even after the darkest of nights. What once seemed bewildering is made clear and understandable when viewed in this direct light.
This card reminds us that each day is a new offering, brimming with possibility and potential. The sun infuses vigor and greatness to everything that basks in its rays. We see a glimpse here of the truth that there is an eternal life force that resides in mortal beings. There’s a radiant energy to the Universe that will never be extinguished.
The Sun represents success, radiance and abundance. The Sun gives you strength and tells you that no matter where you go or what you do, your positive and radiant energy will follow you and will bring you happiness and joy. The Sun is a ‘yes’ to life! It brings with it luck, wellness, positive consciousness, enthusiasm, attainment and success. It is about embracing your destiny and giving it everything you have got.If you have been having a difficult time, the Sun brings you the message you have been waiting for – that things are going to get better – a lot better!
The Sun is also an energetic card. It reflects a time when you can expect to experience an increase in physical energy, vitality and general positivity. You are bursting with enthusiasm, feeling invigorated and enjoying a wonderful sense of good health.
