Rebirth

Eight of Cups 

By looking at the past, acknowledging our mistakes and learning from them, we grow and attain new wisdom. The future waits to be unfolded by our positive action. 

The wheel has come full cycle. On one level this represents a solstice feast, a broth made for sharing. On a deeper level this card represents a profound rebirth. 

Transformation in which all the elements of oneself are being poured in order to be recombined. 

Focusing in the present.

Power

Five of Wands

Foundation

Ace of Stones 

The primal rock from which all can be measured. Cup and ring = emergence of life. A still and stable point from which to plan and measure your life. 

Mythically the foundation stone means the first dry land on which life could begin. Also the first created form, matter, the mother stone, the firm ground from which one can begin one’s journey and measure the eight directions, the birthing ground, the navel stone. 

The Labyrinth is the place where your journey begins; the first steps; the cup and ring marks represent the source, your emergence into this world. 

A new stability enters your life.
