The beginning of healing, perhaps tears bringing emotional release. The cup is a precious gift.
A person who will guide you to a place of healing, perhaps by a message or gift.
Be aware of small signs, that may have later significance. A special person who moves in and out of your life. A free spirit, elusive, but dynamic whose positive energy is illuminating.
Eight of Arrows
In the darkness of failure the burning torch of hope remains lit in the human soul and encourages struggle. Courage is needed to survive the storm.
A feeling of being alone, struggling in many aspects of one’s life. A need for support, to open one’s heart to the potential ‘hearthfire’ and for others to reach out and help.

Renewal of an alert determination. Realignment with the sacred will of the land. Secrecy and magical sensitivity. Playfulness. An ability to slip out of situations.

Dynamic energy, dancing into the night. Shamanic dance. Sexuality. Release of pent-up energy. Whole hearted surrender to life.
