Did you choose your card, yet?
If you selected Card 1:
Cat - Mystery
We can unlock out deepest desires when holding gentle yet persuasive intentions.
Domesticated cats are the direct descendants of their wildcat ancestors. Although they now mostly live peaceful with humans, cats still have that wild streak running in their blood. Their primal instincts for hunting often cannot be tamed. Felines have traditionally been associated with the feminine form, as well as witchcraft and magic.
Often considered as lucky charms, superstitious omens and the like, cats seem to carry an air of mystery wherever they go. They teach us how to tap into our own divinity by owning our own deep sense of self-worth, self-honor, and worship. Cats show us how enchanting life can be when we are in touch with our own mystical flow and play on our ability to gently touch, stroke, massage and whisper into our needs and desires. They remind us of the quiet joy that comes when we allow our senses to truly come alive and experience the mysterious sensations that life has to offer when we're devoted to ourselves.
If you were drawn to Card 2:
Jabiru - Foundation
Aligned priorities lay the foundation for a well-balanced and peaceful life.
The jabiru is a large stork; the tallest flying bird with the second-largest wingspan of any other bird. Physically, we notice their dominant features first, such as their strong, powerful, and sharp bill, and bold, almost sinister eyes. To see one of these birds in the flesh is truly a remarkable experience, as they have an incredibly powerful presence about them.
The jabiru shows us that not only do we need to run before we fly, but we also need to consider our priorities and core focus or purpose in life before we choose to undertake new pathways or adventures. Strong foundations are crucial to successfully achieving anything we dream up, so by remember our "why" and working hard towards building ourselves a solid framework, we allow ourselves to not only reap the rewards thereafter, but to also appreciate them more and the time and energy we invested into creating them.
If you chose Card 3:
Deer - Grace
Know when to enter battle or make a subtle retreat.
When we call on our initial associations with this creature, we are usually drawn to the visual of the deer standing quietly in the woodland, staring off into the distance, as through in a permanent state of high alert. They ooze a gentle demeanor, treading lightly among the terrain, foraging, munching, or running from potential danger or predators.
Deer teach us about being in tune with our surroundings and to not become complacent in life. Although generally considered as graceful, gentle creatures, deer are also well equipped to handle the many challenges in their daily lives.
We can see this is reflective within our own lives - this intuitive sense for knowing when something doesn't sound, feel, or seem right. It's all about fine-tuning this birthright and discerning between actual threatening situations and general over-sensitivities. It also shows us that beauty is about how we carry our energetic bodies and how important it is to connect with energetic beauty in order for it to flow throughout all aspects of life.
