If you chose Card 1:
The Morrighan - Take Action
“I see now that events are moving extremely fast: this is a time of rapid change and creation, so rapid that you may wish to slow down, just a little. However I say to you clearly that the time to act is now; and that procrastination and hesitation are your enemies at this time. I can lead you forward through this time, and help you pick your way through the minefield before you. This is a time of testing and darkness, but through this you will grow strong. Be aware! If you have resisted your abilities, or felt blocked in terms of following your life path, these changes will take place very rapidly because they have been waiting for a signal to be able to come in, and they are working hard with you so you do not have to endure a long, drawn out process of change. Truly, you are ready. Take flight with me, and know that taking your own path seriously and acting now with deep integrity, is the way for justice to reach you.
Do not give in to panic and do not run. Now is the time. If not now, when?
You have already tortured yourself in a thousand ways with your thoughts. You cannot avoid change; each day your cells renew, and all you have to do is breathe in and out for this process to take place. You are confusing stasis with safely – there is nothing to fear, there is everything to gain. Give up your fear, your victim-hood and your petty grievances, and walk a while with me and my raven as we pass through the wild dark of the wood and emerge on the other side… changed, transformed and powerful.“
About the Morrighan - She is the Ancient Dragonfae Celtic Goddess of death and change: she not only gave warriors premonitions of their passing so they could make preparations, she eased them through their passage to the other side. Thus she rules transitions in our lives: not simply the ones from this life to the next, nub the ones that take us into the unknown, through our fear and into the alchemy of magic, where we are able to show who we truly are. A triple Dragonfae Goddess, she is fierce, fair, and utterly without malice. She is, however, a straight forward ad sometime abrupt teacher and guide. Be strong, and be prepared for deep change when she makes and appearance. Do not go into fear at these words: let your courage feel inspired and know that destiny has given you an opportunity to be the courageous being of action that you truly are.
Divinatory meaning - A turning point in your life demands action on your behalf, and backing down or avoidance is not the answer. The Morrighan calls on you to take action and to face your fears. This way, your transformation will be one which gives you great strength and wisdom. Feeling frightened, alone and hesitant will only lead you astray. Follow her guidance, know that she will walk forward with you and assist you in uncovering strengths you never believed you had. Draw strong boundaries and claim your space. She can signify transitions and rites of passage. Birth, death, physical change. Spirit connections with loved ones who have passed away may also be indicated by The Morrighan.
Working with The Morrighan - Face trouble rather than turning away. Confront injustice and change the rules by which you have felt bound. Break free from stagnating jobs and pursuits, relationships that offer no life source. Cross over into a more spiritual path and learn to work with your strength and your own ability to create deep change. Losing fear of your own power. Invoking natural laws, knowing you have been acting in integrity. Mediumship.
If you chose Card 2: Lady Titania - Be joyful “Celebrate yourself! There is no true happiness without joy in being who you are. Over this next moon cycle, the forthcoming 28 and a half days, many opportunities will come to you to play, revel, dance and explore the moonlit and joyful part of yourself that has been truly too long neglected! It is time to come forth from the place where you have been taking shelter and quiet time, and partake of the joy of good sweet company. Know that everyone, including the beings of the Dragonfae, is delighted and happy to know of your ability to delight in your own self. Celebrate, and we celebrate with you. Hail, joyful kindred spirit and be welcome to the feast!" About Lady Titania - Faery Queen Titania’s name means, literally, daughter of the Titans. The Titans were the elder gods who were the children of Heaven and Earth, and sprang from chaos, along with the Dragonfae, who were also born of the divine. They included Saturn, Rhea, Oceanus, Hyperion, and others. In Ovid’s Metamorphoses Titania is another name for Diana, as well as other goddesses of the night, queens of the shadowy world, ruling over its mystic elements and powers. So, there is no separation: the titans are the goddesses, the goddesses are the Dragonfae. Like Isis, who personified the feminine, generative principle of universal nature, Diana and the others are all nature goddesses. So, rather than being a diminutive creature of delicacy and daintiness, Tatiania is tall, very powerful and very strong. She is of the elfin race where the height and the features are very pronounced, with enough Dragonfae blood in her veins to ensure she is a creature who can fly, and endure for many millenia. She is one of the oldest ones still with us, and yet her path for this time, and for you, is to help to celebrate with others as the joy of being alive. Just as you are feeling old, despairing and fatigued, she will sweep you up in her strong arms, show you the treasures of your life, and lay out a feast for you to partake in with others of your kind. Because being lonely and isolated is no longer an option for you. Divinatory meanings - Bringing people together in life-changing, sacred and meaningful gatherings; mothering others joyously; being greater than you appear to be; understanding the need for joy and happiness and gatherings that delight in the company of soul mates; family agreements and pacts that are reinforced through celebration; coming together in community with friends. Finding your soul family. Being protected and nurtured by friends and soul-family. Working with Lady Titania - Connecting with others at gatherings, even if they are very small; consider hosting gatherings of like-minded souls; be prepared to balance your inner extrovert and introvert; understand the need for family, and for you to nurture those connections. Very very deep connections with others can still be playful!
If you picked Card 3: Brigid - We are one Brigid speaks - "We are the fae, and the dragon. We are the blood of the ancients and the blood of the star-seekers, woven till indivisible, yet each strand working its magic. We are enchanted and practical. We are mothers, daughter, fathers and sons. You are the wise woman, the crone, the hag, the maiden, the light-footed innocent, the courageous mother bringing forth life from her womb. We are born into blood, and this blood is within us is of our ancestors. Our ancestors know that our bloods have mingled many times and that those of us who seek to distinguish ourselves from each other not the truth. I am One. You are Me. I am You. We are One. That is the truth of the nature within you. Find the magic of the knowing. Find that which you fear and know it within your own blood and heartbeat. For that is the way to conquer all fear, all ignorance and all separation from the Mother. You are Her. She is You. And she is within you and will remain with you forever. There is nothing beyond her, and to deny her now is to deny what you are. I am Dragon. I am Fae. I am Goddess. I am human. I am all there is, and there is all in me - just as there is all in you. See this, and cease to speak separation." About Brigid - She is the great Irish Celtic triple Goddess, mother of all, Goddess of the forge, of birth, of the hearth and home, and all sacred wells and waters. Transformed by the Church into a Christian Saint, she pre-dates her Saint counterpart by some 4,000 years. She is a well of kindness and strength, the patroness of those who are going through any form of struggle e born into another time in their lives. She carries a sword and knows that this time be eased if you hold onto hope, and understand that this is an experience that all being endure...but it will not last. So do not struggle, because the light is in sight and it will be warm and sage and good very soon, and you will be better off for having known the hardship you are currently experiencing. Divinatory meaning - Finding the common areas between yourself and another very different person. Understanding that again is a part of the human process. Moving beyond conditioned fears. Understanding the truth of the other, having compassion and respect for difference, understanding of soul truths, great love. Women having children and mother issues all come up when this card makes her gracious presence felt. Working with Brigid - Work with candles, flames, and keep the light going in your life. Reduce the artificial light in your life and increase the sun and moonlight, the starlight, the light from flame and candlelight. Be sure to strive for justice, as Brigid ensures that what is right and fair will indeed take place. Make an offering at a waterway (the sea, a well, a lake, or a river...).
