This little bird with rainbow feathers, whether male or female, is always able to maintain balance in the air and on the water. With its remarkable ability to dive deep into the water to catch fish, the Kingfisher has become a symbol of ancient wisdom and education for centuries.

5 of Bows – Empowerment
Individuals believe they are not completely helpless anymore. Ultimately, individuals will be able to influence the outcome of every event and change perceptions. The control of any skill, along with the discipline, will energize the process of thinking more decisively and clearly. From there, the arrows of one’s desires and wishes will be shot at fate under a positive impact.
The time to create authority by taking initiative has come. By navigating positive, abundant, and important energies, the individual will help the mind become assertive, certain, and then utilize it to develop and change more effectively. This is not only true for an individual but also for society as a whole
.…Self-generating energy is the key to fulfill our destiny and a feeling of fullness in our hearts through an active and positive attitude towards life.
3 The Seer
Representing the inner world, The Seer is located in the center of The Wheel of The Year, opposite to The Shaman. She is not only a guide for the soul but also an inspiration for creative and artworks. Though ideas could arise on their own in a fanciful kingdom of delights and dreams, The Seer was the one who silently created great literary works, music, or dances. She makes emotional connections in books or pieces of music to life. She brings tears to each person’s eyelashes when a touching movie ends or laughter when a funny story is told.
With the innate ability to balance emotions and the power of will and source of knowledge, The Seer encourages us to change the ordinary material world. She uses all of The Wildwood’s natural resources skillfully. She nurtures positive changes in people’s minds, expresses through emotions and commitment to life. Her magic is one of the purest and most revered things on earth.
This is the time to focus on your personal strength and let it flow through you. Emotional dreams and creative desires are ready to come true. Relieve the desire that is suppressing and healing your relationships. Now, if you apply your spiritual insight into the real world, you will receive great rewards because that’s the way we grow up. Besides, The Seer also brings creative stimulation in art, craft skills, mechanics, intelligence, and joy.

The Wildwood Tarot Deck
In honor of the first full moon of spring…
Within this black hive to-night
There swarm a million bees;
Bees passing in and out the moon,
Bees escaping out the moon,
Bees returning through the moon,
Silver bees intently buzzing,
Silver honey dripping from the swarm of bees
Earth is a waxen cell of the world comb,
And I, a drone,
Lying on my back,
Getting drunk with silver honey,
Wish that I might fly out past the moon
And curl forever in some far-off farmyard flower.

Divination for the collective
drawn on January 21.
Raven – creation, magic, illumination
Bear – healing, divinity, invulnerability
Choose the card that calls to you. What word or words come up for you? What qualities of that animal do you possess?
The word that came up for me was cunning. This describes both Bear and Raven – although they express cunning quite differently.
Meditate or journey and ask what wisdom that animal holds that will help you navigate this month.

Full moon in airy trickster Gemini. Lorna Bevan at Hare in the Moon Astrology described the energética of this time so well, I want to share her words here.
Sending 🌙💗 to you in these wild times.
“Footfalls echo in the memory, down the passage we did not take, towards the door we never opened, into the rose garden. What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.” TS Eliot.
Welcome to the Wasteland, the In Between, the Zero Point….. whatever you call this place of stillness, suspended in time without movement or momentum. Not until January 2023- when Mars, Mercury and Uranus turn Direct on the 12th,18th and 22nd -will we be released from this place of no escape from the here and now.
For those of us who constantly seek newness, distraction and busyness in order to outrun reality, this is challenging. So many of your old tricks which always got immediate results in the past, are no longer working. That time-line, that energy is now deleted. The feeling of loss and lostness is caused by the fact that the old outdated patterns within you cannot find a resonance field now the old timelines are gone.
What we are really experiencing is the ending of multiple planetary cycles in preparation for an influx of new energy in March 2023 when the Great Eliminator Pluto enters Aquarius for the first time since 1798 and Lord of Time and Karma Saturn enters Pisces for the first time since 1994.
In December, pushing the river is pointless. It’s a time for tying up loose ends of all kinds, for completing incompletions, for weeding out old entanglements that keep you stuck or small. Deeply letting go means looking at what needs to change without guilt or judgement.
Wipe the Slate Clean….
Make 2 lists: What you need to resolve or eliminate and What you are compelled to create.
You are now in a moment where you get to review, rethink and recreate just about anything you want. This may involve any facet of your life. You can’t so easily relate to your past anymore. Your soul sees it all as just experience. There is less and less emotional attachment to it. It’s a blessing because it is making room for new memories. It is freeing you up.
what’s heavy, weighing me down?
what am I tolerating, putting up with or settling for?
what am I fantasising about leaving or radically changing?
what would I love to never do again?
what is chronically inflamed?
what am I tired of feeling, and what makes me feel that way?
what is dead in the water?
what no longer has traction?
what’s the one thing I’m afraid to say about my life and what am I going to do about it?”
~Lorna Bevan M.A.
New moon in airy Libra, amplified by the energies of the autumnal equinox.
This is a potent seed point – the perfect time for planting and nurturing new ideas, new ways of being in the world, new ways of relating to others.
What do you want to seed and feed in your life? Start now.
Full moon in airy, expansive Aquarius.
What is calling to you now?
Look for signs, symbols and synchronicities. They are there to guide you towards a more expanded view of your world and your future.
Stop, look and listen closely. Wildness is calling.
Your guidance lies in moonlight. It reaches you with every raindrop. A gentle wind whispers deep wisdom.
Heed the call. The Universe is conspiring to help you.
