The Bumblebee

Daily Draw: The Empress (Laufey) and the Page of Coins (Gerda)

Today’s draw brings in peace from the home sanctuary, and a reminder to nurture and carefully tend that which is new and precious. Receive the clarification of your thoughts and ideas when it comes, and don’t judge. Don’t let harshness or severity kill a tender growth before it’s had time to root itself securely. Shield and protect your resources, and nurture them into development gently. This goes for yourself as well: shield and protect yourself, and nurture yourself the way you would a beloved child. Eat well, get some fresh air, play for a little while, and drink lots of water. And be nice. No angry words directed at yourself, no shame, and no bullying.

And here’s a special magical thing I’m going to share with you all: look at the rune in the center. That’s Sowelo, the Sun, and it is associated with (among other things) success. Now look at the charm on top of it. It’s the Peace Sign in a circle, but it’s inverted. That doesn’t mean things are un-peaceful. In this instance the reversed form of the Peace Sign creates Elhaz/Algiz, the rune indicating shielding and security. And the little Bee charm right there indicates further good fortune and growth. Your success is secure (although you’ll need to shield and protect it), and it will “pollinate” new opportunities.

Daily Draw: Moonrise, The World rev. (Jormundgandr), and Nine of Cups (Bara)

You are doing good work, so keep at it and protect what you’ve created so far. Your ancestors are with you, guiding you and helping you see the path beneath your feet. We are entering a full moon phase, so clarity (or at least some better kind of understanding) is coming. If you celebrate the ritual and spiritual side of Samhain (Halloween), you know that this Saturday evening is New Year’s Eve, and next Sunday the first of November is New Year’s Day. The Wheel is turning and the seasons are shifting from the phase of the sun to the phase of the moon. We are heading into darkness, but it’s a place where our wishes may be granted. Goodness is coming into being, and it’s important to see where our treasures lie. New treasures or treasures that we thought were long gone but have reappeared will be washing up from the depths and coming back to us for a second chance to work with them, so watch for those opportunities and take advantage of them when they arrive.
