This week we have a most interesting Story Board come out and join us. It’s all about listening, standing your ground and trusting your intuition.
The little wren, messenger of the Druids, comes to us, set in the snowy image of deep winter, though it seems to be thawing (as the water in the river isn’t frozen). Wrens can sing for the entire country, they’re small but their high sweet voices carry. Wrens remind us to listen and to be clear in what we want to say and be careful in how we say it.
The boxing hares, the symbol of spring (Imbolc) are about boundaries, where we draw the line. It was often thought that these were males, but it’s recently been found out that it’s often a male and a female boxing. Where are your boundaries? What are your boundaries?
The Seer (my favourite card!) reminds us to use our intuition, to tap into the hidden knowledge. Her owl’s cloak with shamanic symbols, symbolises wisdom and power. She’s linked to water but the other elements are around her, used by her as necessary. She focuses on her own power and through her, it flows. She’s a character who knows how to trust herself.
How might this story board read for us this week? In general terms, listen, be clear when you speak, define your boundaries and be prepared to stand your ground, trust your intuition, tap into and use your own power.
How else might you read this story board? That depends on your question, but lets take one several of us might be wanting answered this week. We often spend time with families at this time of year, either that which we’re born with, or those we make through friends. How might the Christmas / Yuletide festivities go? Well, listen to what people are saying they’d appreciate as gifts, fight your way through the throngs of others to get that gift (or go later in the evening if there’s late night shopping 😉 ) and trusting yourself that the gift you have picked them will be great! Okay, that might be a little “literal” but since this conversation seems to be one way… Unless you comment, then we can talk!
And when you’d like your own personal story board and interpretation, you can book your reading with me here.The deck I’ve used is, as always, The Wildwood.
