This week I've bought for myself the Druid Animal Oracle (Deck only). First because it includes each of my favorite animals (owl, hare, wolf and bear) and second because the cards are painted by the great illustrator Bill Worthington. I am already head over heels in love with the Druidcraft Tarot and the Wildwood Tarot so this animal oracle was a match made in heaven.
For today I've drawn the Blackbird( Druid Dhubh) (keywords: Enchantment, Inner Call and Gateway) In the background we see the entrance to a dark cave. When we enter this cave we can travel between the physical and the spiritual world.
It is dark, the sun is setting, the stars are appearing in the sky. That is the time the blackbird sings and calls us. He points us to follow our spiritual path to discover our the secret caverns of our souls and he urges us to become fully aware of what we are capable of and what we really want.
Yesterday, while reading a post of Neopagan priestess I came to realize I've been disconnected from the Great Mother for quite some time now. After clearing my altar in the end November nothing much has been going on which has to do with my relationship with the Divine. And suddenly I realize I am missing something.
My first reaction is to do quite some research and set up a solid practice involving the Goddess again. But I know this is not the right way for me now. My monthly theme is letting go, so I want to let go of the need to read and study to find the perfect blend of goddesses which fit nicely together qua pantheons and age but rather let my intuition guide me to the aspects of the Goddess I really want to explore and identify with. There will be plenty of time left to study afterwards. I know I need Her as a mother to guide me and protect me. The rest will follow when I enter this cave, meditate and let go and let Goddess.
