The Justice Card
August 10 - 14
In balance: justice, karma, consequence, accountability, law, truth, honesty, integrity, cause & effect. ~labyrinthos.ca
Reversed: injustice, retribution, dishonesty, corruption, unfairness
Energy: Tree of Life
The Tree of Life is the metaphor for the Justice Card and one that I use in WildCore. It's message is similar to other cards in it's vertical connection to both earth and the sky or celestial realms. This tree lives with a natural spring that reminds us of our connection to the divine feminine. There are two snakes; one blue, symbolizing truth and honor; the other red, symbolizing passion for flesh. There are two goddesses on either side of the tree holding bouquets of lilies, representing rebirth and balance.
This card asks you to open to a greater understanding of your karmic circumstances and conditions. Reminding us that our actions and thoughts have great power and ripple into the universe and back to us in creative ways. The Tree of Life as metaphor, reminds us of our strong support system and the well of wisdom we have collected throughout our life. As we establish these allies in our life, we gain more capacity to love, we open to higher principles of truth.
Fill your bowl to the brim
and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife
and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security
and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people's approval
And you will be their prisoner
Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity.
In our WildCore practice we will dance as the roots, the trunk and the branches of the tree. Allowing the embodiment of the Tree of Life to inform our cells and connect to trees as allies.
The Tower Card
In Balance: disaster, destruction, upheaval, trauma, sudden change, chaos
Reversed: averting disaster, delaying the inevitable, resisting change. ~labyrinthos.ca
Energy: Kundalini Rising
The same stream of life that runs through the world runs through my veins night and day in rhythmic measure. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth into numberless waves of flowers. ~Tagore
In the traditional tarot this card is a symbol of release and liberation. It reminds me of the Hindu Goddess Kali, that wants you to live from your deepest core truth so passionately that she is willing to cause great destruction in order for you to wake up and make the shifts necessary. It feels like the Justice Card is a nice warm up for The Tower. We will embody the strength and support of our root system in order to heed to call of change.
This card will introduce us to the Nigerian Goddess Oya (Goddess of Winds, Tornadoes and Lightening)
She will help electrify your inner life by burning any untruths and stepping fully into your destiny.
Nature's Healer in this card is Rescue Remedy
In our WildCore practice we will dance with our strengths and weaknesses. We will merge with the Air element within us and create our own inner windstorm to shift any old patterns of thinking and re-fresh with new possibilities. Get ready to move with Gabrielle Roth's 5 Rhythms of lyrical, staccato, chaos, flowing and stillness.
Here is more of a description of the Summer Sessions that will go through September 4th, 2020
The WildCore Online Summer Sessions is set up in two week chunks, so you can pick and choose the weeks that work for you OR commit to all the sessions and dive into this journey of embodiment inspired by the living tarot.
So what is the living tarot? I made up the 'living' part due to my experience pulling a card each day and opening to it's magic. For many years my practice was to simply look at the photo and allow any part of it to inform me creatively. Over the past two years I have read from the book by Isha Lerner "Triple Goddess Tarot". Her writing includes alchemy from the divine feminine, along with an archetype and a plant essence for support. I plan to use her book as my main source of inspiration.
Dancing with the tarot all summer is basically a research journey to connect with it's 500 year old history, our present day global transformation, and all the ways the dance & metaphor can energize a new level of awakening into our bodies and evolving consciousness.
There is so much to learn about Tarot, but from my research I have found that it started as a game, similar to Bridge. The deck likely originated in Northern Italy in the late 14th century. There are many versions to the story of how it evolved into a mystics guide to telling the future & a conduit between the conscious and unconscious self. I will leave that research up to you!
As part of your research you can experience the 14 cards I have picked for our dancing collective. We will spend one week on each card and dive into it's message, archetype and energy to spark deeper insight to our soul's journey. The movement, music and metaphor will condition the body, spark your creativity and reveal your untamed self-expression. It is designed for everyBody!

A few threads we will touch in with from June 1 - 12th
The first week we will explore the Temperence card, which teaches us about balancing out inner and outer life and keeping one foot on the ground and one foot in the spirit world. The archetype we will try on is The Angel.
The second week we will explore The World card, which connects us to fulfillment, achievement and completion along with the shadows of each. The archetype is Awakened Aphrodite.
