The Rings (Beltane)
Love, passion, partnership, harmonious union, joy and pleasure. In readings, means “probably”.
Intention, beginnings, births, pioneer spirit
Birch (Betula spp.)
An intention with good potential. Bravery. Breaking free. Ending bad habits. Getting unstuck. The start of something good. A new way of thinking. An invention or fresh approach. The ability of getting outside yourself and fossilized modes of thinking. Breaking out of the box. Being the change instead of just talking about it.
Humans learn through mimesis, so it is only because of the brave souls willing to put their necks out for change that anything improves in the world. Beith indicates the willingness to follow through with an intention so you can change yourself and your world for the better. At first, it’s possible nobody will follow you, but Beith says you have the courage to get it done.
Every day is a new opportunity to become a better person than you were yesterday, no matter how tiny the improvement. What can you do, even if it is a tiny action or possibly inaction depending on the circumstance, to be kinder, braver, humbler, more honest with yourself, more generous, and more grateful than you were yesterday, last week, last year, or last decade?
Questions when you draw Beith:
See ” Karmic Debt numbers.” Impulse and a need for change and adventure can get in the way of carefully planned progress. Lack of focus and commitment. This Karmic Debt number can get you in trouble unless discipline is exercised consciously. All 5s need to guard against self-indulgence, but when based on 14, there’s a selfish side that amplifies a lack of self-control.
K’uei / Estrangement
Fire distances itself from its nemesis, the Lake:
No matter how large or diverse the group, the Superior Person remains uniquely himself.
Small accomplishments are possible.
You are working at cross-purposes with another.
The distance between you is very wide.
The gap can be closed, however, with no compromise of your integrity.
You are not adversaries in this case — just two persons addressing individual needs.
Ask yourself: are these needs mutually exclusive?
Is there common ground here?
Must there be one winner and one loser?
Could you become partners in seeking a solution that would allow for two winners?
Angels are close to you. If you need advice, to feel safe, love or whatever else, just ask them for help.
