I'll have to admit when this card came up again, I thought we can't have the same card two days in a row. So I shuffled draw a new card and there she was again! Three more times and each time Lady of Beasts. She insists that her voice be heard.
Over the centuries this Goddess Archetype has spread to many cultures, all of which share a similar identification with wild places and the animals that live therein. A form of the great mother goddess who births and cares for humanity. She is also seen reflected in Celtic faery myths. Where
Because a fire was in my head,
Cut and peeled a hazel wand,
And hooked a berry to a thread;
And when white moths were on the wing,
And moth-like stars were flickering out,
I dropped the berry in a stream
And caught a little silver trout.
When I had laid it on the floor
And gone to blow the fire aflame.
Something rustled on the floor.
And someone called me by my name:
It had become a glimmering girl
With apple blossoms in her hair
Who called me by my name and ran
And vanished in the brightening air.
She is here again asking us to reflect on our relationships with both animals and the other humans we share this planet with. How do you nurture others? Is there something more you can do? Or are you over whelmed by helping others? Don't forget to take care of yourself and ask for help when you need it. Remember every living thing on this planet is part of a symbiotic relationship.
