Wildwood COTD : Queen of Bows

We have the Queen of Bows come out and hop around at our feet today. She popped out of the deck while I was shuffling it and I smiled when I saw her stare back at me. What has this hare got to teach us today?

Queen of Bows ~ Hare

The Queen of Bows is one image Will Worthington himself has said he’s quite proud of. I would have liked to have seen more brightness in the colours, it’s a little too dark for me, compared to the rest of the deck. However, that said, it’s still a wonderful image that Will has created! Thank you Will!

Now, the Hare herself and hares in general, are linked to spring, partly because of Mad March Hares, boxing hares, etc. The book enlightens us about the name Ostara (Spring Equinox) as it comes from the Saxon Eostre, which was the Hares Goddess. We know that Hares are sexually orientated, which is of course why the hares box anyway (female says no, male says yes, argument starts, female wins).

However, the reading point from the book says that hares are a companion through life, sympathetic and understanding, leading you to a deeper awareness of what is needed to bring you success to your every enterprise. They may be wise and witty, gentle, kind. This Queen supports you and strengthens your resolve.

So, who is your friend today, your champion? Who is going to lead you to a deeper understanding and awareness of what you need to do in order to be successful. They may not sing it from the rooftops, but they’re there.
