Wild Divination on the Gemini New Moon

King of Arrows – Kingfisher

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.

You need to practice your judgmental abilities, skills, and willpower. The King has always been very righteous and he will help you understand: what is something you don’t need to stick to. Use your strength, freeing yourself from the burden that is on you.

As someone in your life: Communicate clearly and fairly, this is a virtuous leader who is upholding standards. Impartiality and justice are the hallmarks of this person. His research and understanding are profound and well-known. He has a principled insight, which helps him see into the nature of all matters. He will present you with many potential prospects. He is someone who can properly identify and evaluate a situation.

As an aspect or process: Finding a path through the chaos with calm insight. Be very careful. Need reasonable consultation. Distinguish two sides of a situation. Find a clear stance. Become fair/biased. An urge to resist old practices.

As an event / situation: Advice/guidance. A trial or argument requires arbitration. Verified information. Disciplined approach. A harsh, ruthless situation

Question: What is it that you should explicitly focus on? Who gives you the right advice? What wise words will help resolve the situation? What is your social responsibility?

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.

Be Ground

Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground.
Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are.
You’ve been stony for too many years.
Try something different.
Surrender.

Fierce Feminine

“i found god in myself
and i loved her
i loved her fiercely” 
~Ntozake Shange

“The dakini is a messenger of emptiness and also appears in dreams to guide the meditator, and she might appear in real life as a woman with certain wisdom qualities. The dakini is a force of truth: wherever we cling, she cuts; whatever we think we can hide, she reveals.” ~Sapchu Rinpoche

“Another important aspect of the dakini’s feminine energy is how they cut through notions of pure and impure, clean and unclean, what you should do and shouldn’t do. They break open the shell of those conventional structures into an embrace of life in which all experience is seen as sacred.” ~Lama Tsultrim Allione

I Am

I am the moon goddess casting a silver net over this night

I am the brooding black raven asleep in the dark wood

I am the dreamer and the fox who guards the dreamer

I am the windswept plain where lost dreams can be found

I am the bone songs of my ancestors playing on the wind

I am the heart of the ancient sycamore crumbling into dust

I am green leaves capturing rays of sunlight as they fall

I am the lone crane, standing watch near the shore

I am the jumping salmon crane silently waits for

I am the dance of flickering flame consuming it all

I am Phoenix reborn from the ash of what came before.

Imbolc!

We have arrived at Imbolc – the halfway point between winter solstice and spring equinox.

Days are lengthening, seeds are stirring, animals are birthing. Mama Earth is beginning to awaken from her long winter slumber.

Celebrate that spring is on its way.
