What song is wishing you to sing?
Today, I will share with you a really very appropriate card that jumped out of the deck this morning.
I felt its message was “calling me to play” it.
Elder of Air
Can you hear the sweet sound rising from the aromatic cedar flute? A grandfather’s prayer of thanksgiving wafts to the heavens as his breath becomes melody and harmony. This is a man who has dedicated his life to bringing peace and healing through music. The medicine of music creates a sanctuary for those in physical or spiritual pain, and stirs others to make a difference in the world. His ally Luna Moth flies high, carrying messages to and from the ancestors.
When you get this card in a reading…
The Elder of Air’s message is echoed int he words of Frederick Buecher, that “vocation is the place where your deep gladness meets the world’s deep need.” He shows us how to experience communion with the Great Mystery through worship, praise, or meditation. He sets an example of a life well-lived. This is a time for making decisions, but if they affect others, make sure they are made ethically, with fairness to all.
The Elder of Air offers the gift of inspiration, balance, and clarity. His music can create a sacred space where deep wisdom and enlightenment are accessible.
When you read the Shadow side of this card…
Loneliness, self-pity, or even illness can cause someone to forget how to commune with the wisdom of the world. Forgetting may lead to headaches, forgetfulness, or even memory loss. A sense of isolation or being cut off from others may be in play, possibly encouraging someone to cultivate an aura of mystery for ego reasons, making matters worse. However, music or an emphasis on fairness may restore spirits.
“I am a song of peace and healing for the world.”
-from the Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert
