oh Tracey, great posts about Sedna. I've been thinking a lot about it, reading about the myth and the archetype. So interesting... I'll have to pop back later, but I pulled a couple of cards, Inner child and Flower cards, here's what I got...
XIII Sleeping Beauty
When this card appears in your reading, along period of contemplation may be needed. Do not be afraid of the quiet growth occurring within. Enter the world of dreams, archetypes, and symbols with courage and emotional calm. Learn while you are in a receptive state. Doing something externally is not always an answer. Let go of the past. Like a caterpillar changing into a butterfly, a magical process is underway in the depths of your being. Eventually, you will sprout wings and soar like an eagle over formerly uncharted realms of knowledge.
The process of metamorphosis is dangerous, but every child must go through this incubation period before becoming an adult. The young person must leave the safety net of childhood, but the joys and sorrows of that time span will live on in the imagination.
This card also suggests the healing power of sleep. Without enough rest, the cells of the body cannot function properly and the immune system is stretched to its limit. See the peace and quiet of sleep as an interlude of tranquil recuperation. During sleep, the soul loosens its grip on the physical body and roams the spiritual universe (while still maintaining its tie to the body through the "silver cord" or thread of consciousness);. Enjoy this nightly excursion into another realm of existence and bring back the fruits of those experiences in the forms of amazing dreams, visions and plans for the future.
Traditional Archetype: Death
Zodiacal ruler:: Scorpio
Latin -Penotemen newberryi
Mountain Pride is native to the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The plant, which grows well in dry, sunny climates, has a woody base with thick, roundish, toothed leaves. Its rich, rose-red flowers are tubular in shape.
The tubularity of Mountain Pride flowers denotes a trumpet's call to action, while their deep red color suggests a profound love of humanity, and the plant's thick base symbolizes the grounding and stabilizing of energy. When taking this essence, one's motivations become pure and honest, and one is empowered to speak from the heart, as well as to act with conviction and common sense, in order to achieve his or her destiny.
The Spiritual Warrior
The Spiritual Warrior, also known as the Peaceful Warrior, "walks his talk" and follows through with his commitments, taking full responsibility for his own actions, authority, and freedom. He lives the "Path of the Heart," receiving sacred messages from Mother Earth. Though not literally a warring being, the Peaceful Warrior is also not passive, for he is spiritually guided into various warrior-like maneuvers when left with no other alternative.
You are a Spiritual Warrior. Male or female, you carry the Medicine Way within you, for you walk in reverence as you pursue your heart's calling-your destiny. The great mountain and the zenith sun remind you of the goals you wish to accomplish. Elk stands as your companion, noble and strong, lending its Medicine of perseverance and endurance to your own efforts. Mother Earth opens her lands for you to walk your noble journey.
Mountain Pride with noble beauty,
Teach me to honor my responsibility.
To walk my talk and with love impart,
To follow my journey,
A Path with Heart.
