A Brighid prayer

Brighid, the flowers of spring are appearing

Brighid, the lambs are being born

Brighid, blessings are in your flame

Brighid, there is healing in your flame.

Brighid, we come to you at your time of year.

We come with a flame in our hearts

We come to decorate the wells of our hearts

And to light the flames of our being

We walk with you as you walk the land

Our hands take hammer in hand to reform ourselves on your anvil

We take shape as tempered, stronger beings.

We sing your songs

We dance in the fire

We come to you, Brighid at your time

And we thank you for the help you have given us this year

We offer our hearts and hands to your work.

We light your flame

We light your flame

We light your flame.

Deer

Queen of Arrows

The deer is seen as the sovereign of the Greenwood and a great deal of legend is attached to the White Hart. At home in the heart of the forest and surefooted on narrow hillside paths, hinds are nurturing and protective of their young at midsummer.

A person with a gentle, tender and loving heart, whose quiet wisdom brings healing.

They could have qualities of shyness and oversensitivity; difficult to get close to initially, they are loyal and deep. A person happy and healthy.

(In this tarot card the deer sits still on a grassy mound, whilst the vibrant, healing, vitalised air of summer swirls in currents behind it. The arrows stand still in the ground.)
