Blessings and welcome to your weekly Witch With Me tarot reading! I hope it finds you well!
This week I am using the Celtic Tree Oracle by Liz and Colin Murray and illustrated by Vanessa Card. I chose this deck because as we head into Samhain I think it is important that we honor its Celtic roots by exploring the ancient Celtic divination system of Ogham which includes 25 letters with associations based on nature.
And without further ado…
Card Number One: UILLEAND – HONEYSUCKLE
This card brings you the ability to distinguish what is false from that which is of real worth and usefulness on your spiritual journey, so finding your way to its center. The Honeysuckles will help you to tread safely, remaining true to your beliefs and principles with sureness and lightness in your step. The card will also help you guide yourself and ignore distractions until you reach the point of flight where the fertile secrets of the soul lie waiting.
Card Number Two: GORT – IVY
This card represents the spiral of the self and the search for self. The maze of the labyrinth is also linked to the Ivy since circling inward and outward seeking nourishment and experience from the outside and from within itself, to achieve finally its goal of enlightenment. This exploring, or soul searching is necessary, revealing spiritual strength and depth that you may never previously have tapped into. Your spiraling dance through life also turns you outward, linking you with others through the group soul or collective.
Card Number Three: MUIN – VINE
Your psychic sense will be a more reliable ally than common sense and you must permit instinct alone to show you what should be done and allow your deepest emotions to show freely and openly. Allowing all your sense to open in such a way is a sign of inner development, as you learn to place your trust in them when they are acting for you strongly. Let your soul open so that it is able to harvest and gather together all the signs and omens that it is capable of comprehending.
