After coming back from my Spirit Quest I wanted to take a look at what I should be doing for the upcoming Summer Solstice. I had already felt that the coming holiday would be a sort of an “official” launching day for all that I had learned on the quest, for moving forward in accordance with the Wheel.
A few days out, I drew a single card to get an idea of the overall theme of the coming day and what sort of work I would be doing? What would be the best focus for me? As usual, I used my Wildwood tarot and my pendulum.
The card that came up? The Stag.
In the Wildwood Tarot this is the card for Justice in the Major Arcana of a traditional tarot. Universal Law and Lore. Reaping what has been sown. “Some level of readjustment or interaction has occurred.” The keyword being Responsibility. Yikes! It sounded serious. I was very aware of the importance of what it was trying to say. However, I wasn’t sure of specifics and so I opted to wait a day, open myself up and see what communication might occur. I’ve found that sometimes you have to give yourself distance to the information. I believe that simply seeing the card, without delving too deeply into the meaning, can have enough impact to begin the information flow. The problem is that it takes a bit of patience which, on occasion can be a bit frustrating. Within minutes of deciding I would give myself 24 hours, I knew that I needed to draw two more cards the following day to attach to the Stag card and this would give me helpful information.
More information came along at a steady pace. With the impact of the Quest still fresh it would be time to go back over my past and look at past actions, at past habits. It would be a time of Judgement but not in a harsh way but in an internal reset and renew. I also began to feel very strongly that the Fey would be involved. It was a no brainer, actually. It was Midsummer we were talking about here! The involvement with the Fey was confirmed that evening with a small session with the dowsing rods.
