I'm working delving into Brigid of Kildare, saint and goddess from Ireland. She belongs to Candlemas. I am using a story for my spread.
Once seven “venerable bishops” came to visit Brigid. Brigid’s cook told Brigid that they did not have any refreshments to give the bishops. But Brigid was able to milk her cows three times in the same day. Each time the cows gave three times the amount of milk what they normally gave. Finally all the pails of Leinster overflowed. Created was what nowadays is called the Lake of Milk.
1.Whom/of what do I have nothing to offer when they come visiting me? The card can show people or aspects of myself or others. It can be someone or something I really like; it can also be someone I dislike or it can be a shadow aspect of myself.
2.How can I follow in Brigid’s footsteps, and ‘milk my cows’, in such a way that a lake of milk could be created, in other words that there is more than enough.
3.The result (read the card positively)
Story from Amber K and Azrael Arynn K. Candlemas: Feast of Flames, Llewellyn, 2003.
Today I have read the card for the second question: How can I follow in Brigid’s footsteps, and ‘milk my cows’, in such a way that a lake of milk could be created, in other words that there is more than enough.
A week ago, when I promoted my courses in a spiritual centre in Groningen, someone asked me if there was a card I did not like drawing. It was the card that I have pulled today, the Four of Pentacles from the Victorian Romantic Tarot, that popped into my mind.
This woman sits on her money, and is very inflexible. The only thing I like are he floor and the roses on it. This card shows me the way though to create abundance.
Interesting cards, the card of yesterday and today, food for thought.
