For Friday, February 26, the card of the day from Mystic Sisters Oracle Deck by Emily Balivet is Gaia. The first thing to notice about this card is that it is entirely green. The goddess personifying our Mother Earth has green skin, green hair–rivers of green hair, which flow like liquid. She wears a mandala in her hair and we see just a little of her green dress. Her eyes are closed, and her facial expression is neutral. Does she sleep? Is she concentrating on something? Is she happy or angry or sad? We can’t be sure.
The key words from the artist are Peace, Tranquility, Serenity. We are invited into Gaia’s tranquility by releasing our pains and sorrows and anxieties into her hands. We are invited to step out of the chaos of our everyday lives to reconnect with Gaia, and to let go of the chaos and unravel the knots we tie ourselves in.
I can’t think of a better invitation. This weekend is the full moon, and I’ll spend some time with the elements to recharge. There is so much I want to do, but the invitation to let go of some of the chaos should always be accepted.
