Today’s card, Celtic Owl from the Chrysalis Tarot, is the equivalent of the Hanged Man. There is nothing hanging in this picture but we do see a beautiful owl against a starry night sky. Under his wings he is keeping an interwoven Celtic knot. So what is this card all about? The keyword is Rebirth. The message from this card is trying to connect to everybody and everything in the Universe and to experience the oneness of the entre creation. Even though we cannot see it doesn’t mean it isn’t true. The owl is a creature who can find his way in the dark of night with ease. When we have the courage to follow Owl into the unknown unconscious realms and to surrender to his wisdom, we can be transformed and be more receptive to see all of creation in a more holistic way. This is a long-term process which demands patience, the art of letting go, imagination and regularly contemplation.When we are determined to follow Owl he will teach us what every great teacher has taught over the centuries: “ Everything is connected ; We are one” and how to sacrifice our ego and old ways of thinking to this idea and to find the bliss of enlightenment.
“But I'll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you'll come to understand that you're connected with everything.”
