    • Seer: Grey Catsidhe
      Method: Druid Animal Oracle

      Nature Spirits – sow – nurturing and generosity from the land.
      Ancestors – blackbird – listen to our inner call.
      Gods and Goddesses – bear – it’s okay to rest and recover during the cold, difficult period.

  • Spring Equinox
    • Seer: Skip
      Method: ogham

      Question for all is what lessons / wisdom should we work on?

      Pre-rite  Gooseberry, favored by the Nature Spirits.

      Ancestors – Fir, we need to take the long-view.

      Shining Ones – Alder, a tree of guidance due to its association with Bran the Blessed.

      Nature Spirits  Honeysuckle, the bush that binds everything together.

      After rite – Aspen, a tree of communication.

      Overall, the Spirits of Nature influenced the whole rite. For the coming period, we should take the long view and know that the short-term effects do not matter. The Shining Ones will guide us, and the Spirits of Nature will bind us to the right path in our communications.
