Earth Wisdom Tarot Sacred Art

Moments of Grace: Art, Storms, & Sun

in Art, Moments of Grace

Yesterday, it was spring. Today, it is the season of storms. I stood here and watched an eagle head into the wind, then glide on the currents. Power and ease.

I love the edge of winter and spring, with stormy weather one day and balmy sunshine the next. I have been spending long hours in the studio these past two weeks, working in beeswax collage (encaustic) on a majors-only tarot deck.

Brigid's Eve

On Brigid’s Eve, we dined on the salmon of wisdom, welcomed Brigid with poetry, song, guitar, and harp; set intentions for a year and a day; and tied our prayer ribbons on the sacred lilac bush. Full hearts.
