 The Stoat

Page of Wands 

With a fierce hunting instinct and its ability to live underground, combined with the changing colour of its fur from white to red (the symbols of winter to spring) and its black tail, the stoat has strong mystical links to the sovereignty of the land. 

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.

Exploitation

Six of Stones 

Selfish or foolish overuse of non-sustainable resources. Implies a situation of imbalance in work or business that is damaging yourself or the environment.

This card is the opposite of Harvest. 

An exploitation of the earth’s resources… the poor are exploited for the benefit of the rich. 

A feeling of being trapped in a system of greed. A need to question the purpose of your work, and your part in the whole.
