So here we are
At the cusp of the winter solstice.
The great wheel has made another turn and we find ourselves waking from our winter slumber, the time we have spent hibernating, withdrawing into our dark world, making our inner journeys.
Now is the time of rebirth, a time to wake and become active again, using the wisdom we have gained over the dark months.
I have been working with my shamans oracle today and was given three cards...
The spirit of challenge
The dancer of lies
The hunter of death
The spirit tribe is linked with th ice cave, aether
inspiration, spirit, purification and dreams.
The challenge here is all about gathering the energy to move forward, grabbing courage, taking risks, determination.
The tribe of dancers is linked with the cave
of hearthfire, fire, home, protection, joy and transformation.
The challenge here is all about confronting the truth in order to conquer the lies within and find our way back to our path. It's all about distraction, darkness, inner conflict.
The tribe of hunters are linked with the cave of rivers, water, journeys fertility, emotion and boundaries.
What we embrace with this particular death card is far from negative, it speaks to us of the death of negativity, the old, unhelpful ways and the potential of glorious transformation...of awakening, renewal, change.
This all links so beautifully with the winter solstice and my life...the cards still have the power to surprise me with their truths.
Over the dark months I have allowed my depression and anxiety to get the better of me. I have done little but sit on my sofa and read or crochet when the whim took me. I have done no crafting and had little inclination to do anything.
Now I am feeling more positive.
