Choices, Choices: The Way Forward

Eadha (Aspen) 

We are given many choices this week and our decisions will lead either to growth or stagnation. At first it may seem that rocks and twisting vines are hiding the path forward. Listen well, and the road may become clearer.

Though the trembling poplar can seem courageous, reversed Eadha becomes immobile by fear. This ogham warns us that we cannot be paralyzed by our agitations. Step away from what is scary. Breathe. Take a second look at the situation and find new ways to look at it. Burning some sweetgrass will soothe and “sweeten” the mind, assisting in how to approach quagmires.

Beith (Birch)

As the ogham of birth and beginnings, Beith reversed becomes stagnant and stuck. A sliver of renewal resides just under the surface, however.  Make friends with patience and time until you find a hidden reserve of energy. Honey Calcite is a great stone to keep on the self for prolonged work, especially for relieving stresses that hinder the breaking of idleness.

Nuin (Ash)

Nuin burns bright and strong. Similar to the phoenix, this ogham symbolizes transformation, change, and growth. Nuin reminds us to let go of the past and release our hold on things that are dying. This week, let’s work towards breaking out of stagnant aspects of our lives to prepare for new growth and change.

Peace and Bright Blessings!
