II. The Meaning of Ace of Stones Wildwood Tarot
The most effective action of reason is to formulate an idea and prove it to be a reality, fact. That means being able to create and organize your thoughts that can change the real world or transform your wishes, dreams, or desires, making it truly possible.
III. The interpretation of Ace of Stones Wildwood Tarot
The perception of the physical world as a solid and unchanging body that always goes hand in hand with our understanding of the universe. Humans seem to have unique abilities to interact with the physical world and also forged the first foundation in other fields of reason, imagination, and creative will. Being connected to the Earth and the energies residing here allows us to access the first primitive sources and lead the way directly to the energy of wisdom to make changes in our world.
The assumption that aspects of the matter and the realm of wisdom are completely specific and separate has become obsolete and has been proven inaccurate. The pristine rock inscribed with ancient cups and rings showed the creation and cycle of limited energy sources in the cosmic consciousness as well as a fixed and constant argument, from there to plan and create opportunities for your life with many dreams.
IV. The guideline of Ace of Stones Wildwood Tarot
“I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life that he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours” – Henry David Thoreau.
The Ace of Stones – the wonderful version of Rider-Waite’s Ace of Pentacles in the Wildwood Tarot – is all about setting up your foundation and finding your place in the physical world. It is about reaching the foundation, interacting with nature, and reconnecting with the Earth. You may be focusing on today’s mundane concerns, such as developing crafts, making a living, and preserving what you gain over time. Ace of Pentacles has traditionally been associated with money, but this is more than that.
This Ace of Stones is a vivid breathing rock. It emerged from a barren landscape and directed towards the sky (consciousness). The patch of grass at its base speaks to new developments and beginnings, while the surface covered with lichen reminds you that it has stood the test of time. The intricate symbols engraved on the Stone are prehistoric cup and ring markers. They claim that the presence of ancient mysteries and wisdom is part of our legacy. The Ace of Stones says it is the right time to take what you have learned and develop over time and make it happen.
The Ace of Stones is also associated with this dark time of year on the Wheel – winter. The Earth is the home of Stones and thus it is the element that we associate with it too. For those who live above the earth, the winter months are a time for gathering around the fires, drawing close to each other, taking stock, and preparing for the coming Spring. For those who dwell below, deep within the Earth’s caves or within the planet’s frozen soil, life sleeps.
In the Ace of Stones, we have the Foundation of Life. The Ace shows us an ancient stone standing in a clearing, covered in the cup and ring markings and the labyrinth of the Wildwood. In the Foundation of Life, we have gifted the building blocks of life – the elements, the cells, the chemical reactions, the gems, the stones, the precious metals, the seeds, the egg, and sperm. This is the realm of Stones.
During our time here we will experience the Healing, Creativity, and the physical Challenge as well as learning about the power of Endurance, the dangers of Exploitation of our Mother Earth, and the value of Tradition. The Ace tells us that this is the perfect time to make a start on fulfilling the dreams that concern your home, your health, or your wealth. So, what are you called to build?
Today, the Ace of Stones asks us to begin this process. That is the beginning of your dream, right now this minute. The rock on the card looked like it was piercing through the earth, a solid arrowhead of rock. It requires us to accumulate all of our ideas and thoughts about what we want and how we can get there and turn them into something solid. The planning time in the warmth of mind was gone. Your dream is ready to become something physical in daylight.
When you make a decision to creatively embody a new reality and put yourself completely in your dream, this rock will become your foundation, rooted in the vivid but subtle energy of the earth. From this stable place, you have the power to fulfill your material dreams on this physical plane, while using the creative energies of your mind and emotions that often remain mysterious, but are ever-present within us, to shape and mold our journey as it spirals through the labyrinth of our lives. Your path through the maze is no longer hidden, or vague. Now it is engraved in Stone.
