Year Ahead Spread March - Ehwaz and Daughter of Pentacles

Wild Unknown Tarot Runes Daughter of Pentacles Ehwaz
My Rune for March is Ehwaz (horse), which is a rune of fast movement and rapid progress. It encourages us to have confidence, to broaden our horizons and to be open to new elements in our life. The tarot card for this month is the Daughter of Pentacles from the Wild Unknown Tarot. This is a more gentle and cautious energy than Ehwaz. Imagine a horse running wild, mane waving in the wind, trampling the soil beneath his feet, foaming at the  mouth  from excitement: such a difference from the gentle fawn  in the Daughter of Pentacles.
I feel like the Daughter of Pentacles will help me to rein the sometimes unbridled energy of Ehwaz. We all know that feeling when the winds are changing, the earth is quickening and Spring is just around the corner. We seem to be able to tap into an unlimited source of energy but, yes there is always a but, for me this is a very familiar pitfall: Spending too much energy at once which will leave me depleted afterwards.

I am looking forward to the abundant energy of Ehwaz this month but I am also grateful for the prudence and sensibility of The Daughter of Pentacles. She will encourage me to slow down when needed and she also will show me how to seek out the most delicious herb and grasses between the weeds. That ways I can preserve my energy and also enjoy life to the fullest.

  1. Maybe the galloping energy of Ehwaz can be an intellectual pursuit (inspirational ideas) while this Daughter can keep you grounded in doing what is practical and maintains common sense in your physical care. :)

    1. Perhaps you are aright. That is the fun part of working with this spread. It makes more sense at the end of the month. For now I am collecting options and ideas :D

  2. The Earth is changing her tilt and the days grow longer. Soon Persephone returns and heralds Spring! I don't know if you change your clocks and observe Daylight Savings time; here we do. We change our clocks in the Springtime and move the day ahead one hour. This year is March 12 and we really experience longer evenings. Enjoy the renewed sense of energy.

    1. Thank you Carolyn! We observe daylight savings time too. In Spring I find it rather confusing but when we turn back the clock in Autumn it is easier

  3. The deer does seem to say go gently and light footed but enjoy the odd leap :) A lovely energy for this transitional month.

  4. Lovely! I also burn myself out with bursts of energetic activity. Maybe I can embrace some of this energy too.

    1. Thank you so much Cher. I used ride horses myself so it wasn't that difficult to imagine

  7. I love the Daughter of Pentacles' energy. I see in her also those first tentative steps a baby deer takes when it is born. A time for a new start on the physical plane, fired up by that Ehwaz energy, but also recognising that you have to learn to walk before you can run. Hmm, a call to the gym, perhaps... ;)

    1. After my hernia I stick to walking and doing some exercises at home for now.:)
      But yes, she is definitely a calming energy for when I get too excited. Like after finishing a pencil drawing, I have to remind myself that my hand needs rest

    2. Fair enough. Glad you're taking good care of yourself, Ellen :)
