In the Gaian Tarot, the 10’s represent the transition to the next cycle, following the peak experience of the 9’s. In the 10 of Air, we see the familiar sight of Canada geese flying in V-formation during the fall migration. We can almost hear the chorus of honking. In European tales of the Wild Hunt, it was said that flocks of wild geese or swans embodied the souls of the dead who flew through the winter night sky. (See Waverly Fitzgerald's article on All Souls’ Day, School of the Seasons)
Divinatory meaning: It’s a bittersweet time of letting go. You may not want to face the winter to come, yet it is inevitable. What plans, ideas or strategies do you need to release as the old year wanes? Who are the ancestors that whisper to you as the geese fly overhead? What wisdom do they have for you?
