27th July – Power of Language

We’re back with the Power Animals for this week and we’ve an interesting animal to help us communicate in our language and in thinking before we speak; A lesson I never seem to learn. I’m terrible for opening my mouth and letting my belly rumble before I’ve engaged my little grey cells. By the time my grey cells have engaged, the moment is over and done with, I’ve said what I’ve said and you can’t undo it. I never seem to learn that I need to think and ponder first, before I engage my mouth. Parrots use a lot of body language to “talk” and communicate with others. They’re beautiful birds, colourful, vibrant. Language and communication can be that. We often call foul language pretty colourful, don’t we? Or is that just me with three sets of infant ears to protect? The other word in this list to the left…

13th July – Protect And Survive

I downloaded a power animal app this weekend, having not been able to find Ciro Marchetti’s Oracle of Visions. The key words are interesting, as it is what I want to do, not what I feel I ought to do. I feel like I should shout out my lungs at the top of the world, at the moment. I don’t know why, but having the rat come out is kind of synchronistic, advising I should just stay in the shadows, watch. That might be the wiser option. The first part, abundant reproduction, I’ve certainly done my part towards! Stealth, I do need to practise; I’m not as quiet as I need to be, I know I don’t observe as much as I ought to. I do feel as if people expect answers from me all the time, being a mother and wife, I’m supposed to have answer, aren’t I? The…

Week Ahead : Camelot Oracle ~ Be Sensitive

This coming week we’re joined by Elaine of Carbonek (Or Helaine) and reminded to be sensitive to those around us, especially if they’re vulnerable. Elaine‘s story within the Camelot histories is yet another that was unknown to me. I did not know she was Galahad’s mother or that Lancelot was his child. Elaine has gone through so much in her journey from loving someone who was drugged (whether she drugged him or not is not clear) so he thought she was someone else (Guinevere), to motherhood and not having much love returned from her son. I wonder how on earth she coped, being in that situation? In the image, she’s pregnant (probably with Galahad) but she’d been left to raise the child by Lancelot, so she found no love in return.  Does the old adage: “Be careful what you wish for?” come to your mind? It does to mine! She’s…

Camelot Oracle ~ Card of the Week: Amangons

This Year, I want to work with a new Oracle deck that I’d like to pair up with the Wildwood. The thing is, my knowledge of The Arthurian Legends isn’t as strong as it perhaps ought to be. This deck came out in 2012 and I managed to get John to sign my copy at the Riviera Tarot Conference in Torquay. I could go through and do a deck review (the deck reviews will come later in the year) but I want to do this as a card of the week, especially since there are 33 cards, legend lore and a map spread to learn! The first card up is Amangons. Already, I’m saying: “Huh? Who?!” So lets explore his involvement in the most famous of Celtic and British Legends. Reading the book that comes with this deck (which is 128 pages of card illustration and explanations) we have a…

Green Man Tree Oracle : Rowan ~ Luis

Green Man Tree Wisdom: Safe in the Knowledge of protection This weeks Green Man Tree Oracle comes to us in the shape of the Rowan tree. I love this tree, I already knew it was a tree of protection, which is why I planted one in the garden six years or so ago and one sapling last year near the front of the house. There are quite a few in the park and in gardens around this area. I doubt many know that it offers protection and is also known as The Goddess Tree. Now, the first thing we have to consider is the word: Protection. Who do you rely on for protection? Do you believe in the one God, or Gods, Angels, Spirits? Now, who relies on you for protection? We all need protection from time to time, we’d be foolish to think otherwise. The Rowan tree offers its…
