15 May The Madame’s Bone Oracle Reading 05.15.20
The Spirits chose DEATH, EARTH, and FLORA from The Madame’s Bone Oracle this morning.
DEATH: Ending, Letting Go, Past
EARTH: Money, Property, Family, Health, Physical Body, Mundane Solution
FLORA: Plant allies, healing through herbs, Growth cycle
Today’s message has all kinds of Autumn vibes. Yes, I know it’s almost Summer, but the Spirits are a) wanting to talk about the season of DEATH and b) using it as a metaphor. DEATH has been prominent in many personal readings lately, and it’s really no surprise. We are all witnessing the DEATH of the old “normal” and physical DEATH in a much greater capacity than usual. FLORA in today’s reading is supporting the overarching season/cycle message. EARTH is here as an example, made evident by the season of Autumn. What happens on EARTH during the Autumn season? FLORA begins to die off (DEATH) and the EARTH starts to go quiet. At Samhain, the midway point of Autumn, we honor our dead (DEATH) that have passed before us. We go through the bleak Winter, and at Spring, with the first green shoots of FLORA emerging, we see the EARTH come back to life. That is what the Spirits want us to focus on – not on DEATH, but on rebirth. I was once told by a Hospice worker while I watched my grandmother struggle to let go of this life: dying is the same as giving birth – our mothers labor to bring our spirit into this world, and we labor to release our spirit into the next. It was so profound in its simplicity that it has stayed with me these last 15 years. DEATH is painful, scary, and sad. Birth is painful, scary, and joyous. Two sides of the same doorway – a liminal space of unknown. We are standing in that doorway right now. Accept the knowledge that both sides have to offer, and take it with you as you cross the threshold.
