Lately I am rather tired and I am lacking the energy to do things. This card came up for me today : the Queen of stones from the Wildwood Tarot. Here she is depicted as a bear and today, her defending and guarding qualities are standing out to me. I like to imagine I am curled up, sleeping, like one of her cubs in the back of her cave and she is guarding the entrance to hold off anyone who wants something from me.
It is February; her winter sleep is over and I can imagine she is ever so hungry and because of it, cranky and ill tempered. She has to go out eventually to get some food. She has to leave her cubs who were born during her winter sleep in order to keep alive and get strong again. Sometimes life is all about difficult choices. Especially when you are a caretaker. This queen wants to protect, to feed and to shelter her cubs but she also has to mind her own well-being in order to maintain her nurturing aspects. There has to be a balance between caring and being cared for even if you have to do both by yourself.
This bear looks like I did this morning when my two cats woke me up to let me know I was missing their breakfast time, lol. Sometimes after a rest, I have a hard time motivating myself to get back out of that cave and do what I need to do.ReplyDelete
Me too, me too!Delete

vitamin D. look at that sunshine just out of reach! Even in the Netherlands of the long nights, you can take a quick 10 minute walk outside. Get those rays woman! Makes a world of difference~ReplyDelete
You are so right. But it is so cold and wet outside. Maybe tomorrow the weather will be better :)Delete
