Today, the Heron stands regally and tall in the water of emotions, lifting one foot off the ground, as is their custom. However, the emotions within me aren’t quite acting as calm as the Heron portrays.
What does he say to you? For me, this is a human, usually older than I am (and I’m not that young or old) who has come to learn what their emotions are telling them. Despite the title of the card being male, this can apply to both genders, but certainly older in relation to me, say 50+. Certainly old enough to be called a King.
What does he represent to you, though? There are Shamanistic qualities at play here, given John Matthew’s background. Here’s a link to some Shamanistic information on our Heron friend.
The site is right, I’ve never seen a Heron with others, they’re usually loners and if you’ve ever seen them take off, you’ll wonder how on earth the birds ever take off. They’re clumsy and awkward, to say the least. However, they have some fantastic positive properties to lend to us. Spotting an opportunity and taking advantage of it (like emptying a garden pond of fish in two days!) They know what is good for them, what they need to survive, and they also know what to avoid doing, so as not to place themselves in danger.
Told you, some great qualities here in the Heron! Now, do any of these apply to you? Or are you like me, when all these can and do apply at certain times of the week and day? We’re complicated animals, more so than the Heron, but their insight is helpful to us.
So today, keep a balance between being a loner (Hermit) and having too many social interactions that can drain and ware you out. This is where Social Media can be a hindrance, Facebook and its games can be addictive, as can texting in situations you ought not to (like driving). Life is full of don’t do’s, but as my husband pointed out to our eldest: humans are inherently lazy, we’ll do things just well enough to get by. Which is why things can take us humans ages to grasp: we don’t often try hard enough. Which is a shame, but we can over come that: if we want to. The question is: do you?
