As much as I love the blooming flowers and the beautiful transformation into springtime, the surge in springtime energy is challenging for me. The increase in light can become disorienting, as I wake up earlier and fall asleep later, and become very allured by all the warm invigorating sunshine. I have to ground myself with earth energy to align my personal energy with the land. I connect with my healing master, and give myself healings daily and listen to my body. The urge to go out, be active, and connect with friends and kindreds is strong, and my energy gets very accelerated. The plant beings call me outdoors all the time! There is such joy in the songs of flowers!
In tarot, this year is my “Sun/Wheel/Magician” year, so there is more outward and connecting activity going on this year so far than all of last year! In the Wildwood deck, the 1 card is The Shaman. Although the transition from this year from last year (The Hermit year) is a bit bumpy, I definitely feel aligned with these. The Shaman card is very relevant, since this spring I have focused on healings as a daily practice, using healing tools that I have gathered. As an empath and intuitive, healings are essential for me to call my own energy back into my body, and it feels really good!
If you would like to figure out your tarot year cards, as well as personality and soul cards, read Mary K Greer’s “Tarot for Your Self.” I constantly go back to this book as a reference for really soulful readings for myself and others.
