|The Faeries' Oracle|
Yesterday evening I’d already drawn a card for today from the faeries’ Oracle. It was Penelope Dreamweaver. She represents inspiration, creativity and dreams. It looks like she is some kind of muse. The fun part of this card is that she is Brian Froud’s muse and that it is up to me to discover my own. She is merely a reminder of my own guide in these right brain matters. I thought it might be a good idea to draw some more today and be extra aware of any “signs”.

This morning I picked up my Wildwood Tarot and drew a card with the following question in mind: What do I have to be aware of when I open myself up for inspiration and creative ideas?

The Blasted Oak. The name itself sounds a bit like a curse. Imagine what the guy would be swearing while falling out of this tree and burning his hands. According to the book this card is a combination of The Tower and The Hanged Man
It represents everything that shatters our own constructed false securities and it destroys our perfect created illusions. Everything is ruined but at the same time we are freed from our bonds to our tree (burning ties) We fall upon the earth who will carry us an ground us. So after some healing we’ll stand up again and tread upon a new path ( or perhaps not and we’ll grow another tree…)
For me this card is a very strong push to let go of my creative anxieties and not to be afraid of hitting the ground. Don’t play safe, experiment, draw from your own guts and don’t be scared to fail. Be raw, be real, be yourself. That’s the best I can do for now and I know my Dreamweaver will be proud of me. ( and so am I J)
