Page of Arrows
The green woodpecker contains the sacred colours of nature – red, white, green and gold – and is known in folklore as a `yaffle’ because of its distinctive laughing call. It is said to hold the secrets of the Tree of Life, as it spirals up trees and disappears within them to nest.
Their drumming (pecking) on trees which echoes through the woodland heralds your entry to a place of the heart.
In the tarot the pair of woodpeckers look at each other, a third flying down the arrow shaped path, guiding you to love.
