If you are fortunate enough to receive this card in a reading, then you are nearing the destination of your journey. You can slowly dust yourself off and tend to any scratches or injuries incurred during the trip. You have made it and you are definitely on the right path! The Divine is working with you and are currently righting any wrongs that you may have experienced. If you hit another bump at this ending stage, then it is because the Universe is trying to get your attention and wants you to be gracious. The scales are tipping in your favour.

This card takes on the likeness of The Hermit from the traditional Rider-Waite Smith. If you receive this card, you need to ask yourself if you’ve been accurately identifying the true difference between loneliness and aloneness. We are rarely ever alone, but oftentimes experience loneliness. We feel lonely when we are misunderstood or feel unsupported by those in which we seek approval. When we can overcome being lonely and realise that we only need support and understanding from ourselves, the need for approval from others begins to fade. This is when we enter a state of aloneness. When we enter this state we begin to find our own inner light, and the more faith we have the brighter it shines. We must trust this light, as it is our inner wisdom guiding us on journey.
If you are fortunate enough to receive this card, the the Divine wants you to remember that life isn’t as serious as you may think it is. If you sat with yourself and asked yourself, “what’s the worst that can happen?” it will always end with ‘death’. However, we must remember that we’ve all died before and that the act of dying takes instant. It is simply a blip in time, time of which is a construct created by the seriousness of man. Nothing more. Nothing less.
Instead of spending all of your time worrying yourself into a grave, take a step back and see the joy that surrounds us all. This card reminds us to have fun and to not take everything and ourselves so seriously. When we begin to enjoy life we ignite a light inside ourselves that acts like a beacon that attracts all things positive to us.
Card Deck: Osho Zen Tarot by Osho, Ma Deva Padma
The Goddess Aset (more commonly known as the Goddess Isis) spins the ankh – the symbol of life, and an object that is seen being held by most in Egyptian hieroglyphs. For me, this is such a powerful interpretation of Aset, the Mother Goddess, because she holds life in the palm of her hand. She controls and commands it, and by doing so creates a ring of fire around her. Fire is the passion that we all breathe, and that breath is what gives us life. The fact that she stands in front of mountains shows her standing in front of the Higher Self and her transcendence of us all.
If you are fortunate to receive this card, you must ask yourself: what is life? What does it mean to you? Most importantly, you must ask yourself…are you living it?

In The Wild Unknown Tarot on the left, the wands are flying all over the place. They are each on their own path trying to travel to their chosen direction, yet all have another wand crossing its path. This card denotes competition. Notice that they are not swords. The fact that they are wands and not swords can also indicate a period of training, or honing your skills or craft for a future project. If you receive this card, keep on the lookout for others who may potentially cause a bump on your road. If you are prepared you will come out on top as demonstrated in the After Tarot on the right.
