King of Stones
The prehistoric horse, common in Europe until about 10,000 BC was depictedfrequently 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.

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.

This tiny bird, both sexes covered with the colours of the rainbow, is equally at home in the air or in the water. With its remarkable ability to dive beneath the water and catch fish, the kingfisher has been symbolic of ancient wisdom and lore for centuries.
The beginning of healing, perhaps tears bringing emotional release. The cup is a precious gift. A person who will guide you to a place of healing, perhaps by a message or gift. Be aware of small signs, that may have later significance. A special person who moves in and out of your life. A free spirit, elusive, but dynamic whose positive energy is illuminating.
