Song of the Wild: Card meaning: New horizons await you! You’re ready to savor the wonders of the world. Take some risks. Answer the call of the wild. Step out of your comfort zone. Live passionately. Take steps in the direction of freedom. Expand beyond your limitations and boundaries. Maybe it’s time to take a journey or do something new and exciting.
Your Native Spirit Wants You to Know: You are entering a period of expansion and going beyond your self-imposed limitations. Even if you feel hesitant, this is the time to try something new and do things in a different way. You might even visit far-off lands or wild, natural places. Adventure often entails risk, but without it, life can become lackluster and stagnant. There’s a vast, new and wonderous vista just around the corner, but you’ll never see it if you don’t venture out.
The Journey: Plan a trip. Take some classes that get you out of your comfort zone. Try new styles. Do the same things that you’ve always done, but in a new and different way. Push beyond your boundaries. Step out of character. Spend time in the wilderness.
Ancient Forest: Card Meaning: Your roots go deep. Incredible, radiant, healing strength is available to you and grows within you. Do not doubt your abilities. You’re so much more than you can possibly imagine. There’s immense, unseen – but very real – support around you. You are loved and cherished. You are grounded, stable and strong as your spirit reaches high into the heavens.
Your Native Spirit Wants You to Know: Throughout the world, those in indigenous cultures revere what are called the “Tree People”. The powerful life force of trees can bring healing, strengthening and grounding energies. The kind of tree might vary from culture to culture, but the reverence and gratitude for its beneficial energies are the same. The ancient forest is alive with nature spirits: additionally, each tree has an individual spirit especially powerful and resilient. The forest can survive the harshest conditions because of the mutual support of the spirit of the entire forest. Your greatest strength is silent and deep. It doesn’t need a show of force….it just is. Inner power is found through contemplation, reflection and meditation. Sometimes it comes from times of growth and change; other times it springs from surviving and conquering painful situations.
The Journey: Adopt a tree. It can be one in your yard or one in a nearby park or wilderness area. Talk to the tree. Touch its bark. Give thanks, and by doing so you create an energy connection that will continue to nurture you, no matter how far away you are from your adopted tree.
