For this weekend I’ve drawn an oracle card from the Goddess Guidance Oracle by Doreen Virtue. I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled this card from the deck: Nemetona – Sacred Space. She is the Celtic Goddess of the sacred grove.
“She is the sacred grove and it is her. She is sacred space, whether that is found within the majestic trees of a grove or if it is held simply within one's heart. She is holy breath, the sanctuaries we create, not out of stone and mortar, but out of love and reverence… Simply put, she is sacred space.”(Sora Nalani)
After the Nine of Pentacles from yesterday, which was all about enjoying life’s little luxuries in the physical world, this one is emphasizing to retreat and find a more spiritual sanctuary in order to connect to the Divine. This can be a real place in nature or maybe a church , but in my circumstances I am thinking more about a small altar or a inner sacred space. I was reminded by the importance of this by Sharyn in her yesterday’s comment:”We often need to mentally go to our room of quiet joy”. I do have a little altar in my room upstairs but lately it hasn’t been used very much. I’ve redecorated it for Ostara and Spring and that’s about it. My inner cottage has to be swept and dusted too. It has been so long since I have been there. It is definitely in need of some serious "Springitual" cleaning J
Have a wonderful weekend!
