I was a bit hesitant to draw my card for today. After the two last ones, I honestly considered to take an oracle break. But that didn't feel right. So I picked up my deck and started to shuffle and, what seldom happened, one card flew out of the deck in my lap. I turned it around and I sighed with relief: The Elder! How I needed this rendition of The Hierophant. A wise woman is sitting near a trunk and is inviting me to join her. A soft red velvet stool is waiting for me. Here I can sit down and rest from my all my swordy tribulations. Dreamer Ten en Dreamer three: what are the odds! Sitting in the shade of the Apple tree, which connects this card to the beginning of autumn, the season of introspection and reflection, we talk and she listens to me and after I've shared my feelings she starts to teach me….
Only after I have let go of all my rigid thoughts and beliefs, I will be open to listen to her message, to learn what really matters.
This card touched me so deeply and it feels like this was exactly the right card for me today. I am ever so glad I continued working with this deck!
“Join me and see the pattern of life unfold. You may learn yet you may teach. Take the spiral path of aged rings and find your sacred welder within.” (Emily Carding)
