I walk the forest path
Through trees and meadows
Past brooks, creeks and streams
Amid sunbeams and moonbeams
To find what I seek.
May the blessings of long-lived oaks attend me
The strength of the redwood keep me
The healing of eucalyptus strengthen me
The flexibility of willow be with me
The shimmering of aspens bewitch me
The cleanness of birch inspire me
The magic of hawthorn delight me
The patience of pine sustain me
The essence of cedar purify me
This is the path I walk as a druid
Make me one with the earth
Make me one with the waters of Earth
Make me one with the airs of Earth
Make me one with the fires of Earth and sky
Make me one with the spirit of Earth.
King of Stones
The prehistoric horse, common in Europe until about 10,000 BC was depicted frequently in paleolithic cave art. The Uffington white horse chalk figure once held a long barrow in its mouth, representing the breath of life and pro-tection of the dead. The 30,000-year-old carving of an unshod hoof is thought to represent both the vulva (the beginning of new life) and the primal footprint that shows the trackway through the forest.
Choosing this card signifies a positive change in one’s life. A horse is a psychopomp -an animal that carries one between the worlds, bringing new life, the joy of the reborn sun. Perhaps there has been a fallowness, or an unhappiness in your life that will now begin to thaw.
A person who is reliable, wise, practical, able to help others with problems; both serious and playful, magical and grounded. They have their feet on the ground and their head in the stars.
