This week’s card, The Hierophant, has an image of a crow, which speaks of magic, intuition, wisdom, and the voice of experience. The crow is cawing, so it obviously has something important to convey to us. It could be quite literal; maybe we will read something on Twitter which has a significant message for us this week! I think it’s important to remember with this card that the the relevant information is likely to come from an outside source. It could be a mentor, counsellor or teacher, or just as likely, it may be a snippet of conversation we overhear, the lyrics of a song on the radio, or something we read on a blog at just the right moment.
The crow grasps a large key in her claws, which suggests that something vital is about to be unlocked….something of great value, which allows access to new information which has until now been under metaphorical “lock and key”. The penny is about to drop, and things fall into place.
The bolt of lightning underlies the fact that this message is likely to be received like a “bolt from the blue” when you least expect it. It is illumination that suddenly becomes available, in a classic “light bulb” or “ah-ha” moment.
Make sure that you are alert to all incoming information this week, whatever it’s source. There may be gold and jewels mixed in with the everyday dross!
