We should take this time to appreciate the power around us, take solace in the guidance from the power animals surrounding us and the message they inspire us to believe. On the 6th day after the full moon the trees will be chosen, the mistletoe cut with a golden sickle. The Alder Tree (Fearne) represents the solitaire the one who treads his own path and leads from the front. Now is the time to be heard, be seen and share wisdom. To look for those around you with a hidden curriculum.
Some of the deities surrounding us include the Archangel Gabriel who stands in the West facing East, ready to embrace those that come forward.
Odin with Sleipnir his eight legged horse racing his chariot racing across the sky with the sylphs and creating a trail for Valkyra to haunt the battlefields and collect her warriors, also for Freya to bring in the new energy, spreading love, peace and fertility across the lands and encouraging the souls looking for peace to follow her back to the halls of Valhalla.
Bran the Celtic riverman and leader of men a giant of a man, who guided his followers for seven years after his body was no more and to this day protects London. The Ravens in the tower acting as his sentinels.
