II. The Description of The Shaman Wildwood Tarot
The Shaman Wildwood looks out of the card with his eyes wide open and clear. It seems something ancient and erudite shines in his steadfast gaze. He wears a bearskin, adorned with a painting of the souls of animals, inspired by paintings on La Cavern des Trois Freres, Ariege Province, France. On the one hand, he has the shape of a human, wrapped in Bison cow fur. The Shaman toyed with the bowl as if dancing in music. On the other hand, he looked like a creature with antlers and owl heads.
In front of him, there were many objects on the ground, representing the four elements of the world: a drum made from the head of roebuck (Air), a knife made of stone (Earth), a bunch of smokey rags (Fire) and an empty cup made of antlers (Water). The Shaman stands in a position opposite to The Seer on the individual rotating shaft, inside The Wheel. He regulates the element Air, which represents energy and knowledge of magic – defies human reason.
III. The Meaning of The Shaman Wildwood Tarot
The spectacle of the universe is recreated by ancient artists, where the strength and expertise of humans are intimately associated with the qualities and skills of wildlife. Human spiritual prosperity depends on a sympathetic and revered exchange of sacred ancient memories of life. And appeasing the gods, as well as the guardians of the Totem tree, is The Shaman’s most important responsibility.
The card enlightens questions about the small universe within us, as well as about other worlds. The Shaman has a unique ability, that is, being close and chatting intimately with every stage of conscious life on Earth. He shivered when he felt the depth and joy of the haunting sound the whales were singing. He got goosebumps when he heard the howl of Timber wolf. His soul resounded with echoes from the mountains and laughed with the waterfall in its purest delight.
The Shaman intentionally uses magic. He studies the habits of wildlife creatures; he understands weather signs, predicts a good harvest or dry summers. He knows how to distinguish medicinal plants from poisonous mushrooms. He is able to travel through the night by observing the dance ritual of magical creatures, living in the night sky. He is grateful to the plants that provided warmth and light in the winter. He gathers with the young men by the fire, tells stories of the great expedition, conveys his courage to light the soul, and teaches those who want to listen.
Through internal exploration and conditioning, The Shaman will help you understand your true position in the world. Then you can practice and apply knowledge and will power to the physical world. This work requires a great deal of dedication, patience, and determination. And just like that, true miracles can happen.
