The Wishing Well

Unexpected gifts. Kindness. Karmic jewels.

It’s said that in ancient times women would sing and whisper into wells, believing that the water would carry their messages from one corner of the world to another. This may sound like something from a children’s fable, but in fact, several scientific researchers have theorized that water can be imbued with energy from our thoughts, emotions, and intentions.

Wishing wells are found all over the world and they mirror to us the great reverence held by our ancestors for Earth’s fresh waters. Greek mythology says that the tradition of wishing wells began through the practice of throwing coins into a sacred well of the warrior Amphiaraus, who was a renowned oracle.

The Wishing Well is a wonderful card that carries with it great blessings, gifts, and fulfilled wishes. When it appears in a spread it’s a sign that things are happening and that the realization of your dream is likely to occur. Of course, any creation requires embodiment and action, so it’s not a sign to stop moving toward your dreams in practical ways.
