11. Transparent Terrors

Things turn scary in the forest, in the darkest hours: branches shift to ensnaring claws, rustling leaves sound like hunting footsteps, distant howls give chase to our wildest imaginations. But how do these things look or sound to us, in the light? TRANSPARENT TERRORS tells you it's time to take a step back, breathe deep, look at the big ideas that put you on edge-- then take them apart, bit by bit. Something you're worried about is much larger in your head, than it would be if confronted directly, posthaste.

This card is part of the FOREST Suit in the Woven Wisdom Oracle, which asks us to closely examine the things in our natural/default settings that we commonly pay no mind to.  Which details in your life are you encouraged to engage with more fully?


Could relate to: preparing for long-awaited confrontation, handling assumptions from yourself/others, irrational fears at the root.


Key Questions:

  • What conversations are scary to me, and for what reasons?

  • Does my history with this conflict change how I approach it?

  • What are the truths of the situation?

  • What does it mean to be free of this situation?

  •  Once I fully handle this issue, what can I accomplish?

YES/NO:  NO.  What you perceive to be true is not the case.
