Card of the Week: Guardian of Water

in Mermaids, Spiritual Practice


How appropriate for the Guardian of Water to show up this week, when so much of our attention is focused on the Gulf of Mexico and the devastation there.  What can we do to help?  Sia Vogel is doing a great job of keeping us up with the latest news from the Gulf on her blog and on Twitter.  Blog reader (and Gaian Tarot aficionado) Deborah Sam wrote to tell me about an event happening this Friday called “Unity Wave for Gulf Restoration.” I plan to take part.  How about you? 

The website says:

The oil spill in the Gulf is a disaster for the ecosystem and all its life forms. This is a call to action for people of every faith, creed, tribe, nation and origin to focus the power of group intention to restore this area. You can contribute by actively and consciously holding a focused intention. Together we create a powerful group synergy, the Unity Wave.

The Guardian of Water, to my mind, is an embodiment of Kwan Yin and Tara and Mary, all Mothers of Mercy, Goddesses of Compassion pouring out their waters upon a troubled world.  We need Her more than ever.

What does this card say to you, dear Reader, either globally or personally?

Thoughtful, sparkling comments. . .

    Both the Guardian of Water and the Guardian of Earth are in my 3 cards for the week! A call to pay attention.
    I have been meditating on the Guardian of Water in particular. She calls out to me to enter into her beauty and mystery and love.
