Summer is less than a month away and with it comes a busy time in most of our lives. With this being the time of year that we spend a lot of time outside I decided to pull Ogham staves for a reading for each of the elements found in astrology. So, with no further ado….
Earth Elements – Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo. IVY.
Just as ivy entwines itself amongst other plants and objects in its path, this symbol is all about connectivity with friends and family. Expect this upcoming season to be filled with plenty of time spent with friends and loved ones, and creating binds that will stand the test of time. Ivy is incredibly durable and is able to withstand almost anything, just like the loyalness that is a key part of the Earth signs personalities.
Air Elements – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius. HOLLY.
Holly was sacred to the Druids and was linked with intuition, dreams, and the subconscious. With this in mind take time to work on your divination skills, especially on the Summer Solstice! Pay attention to your dreams and if you don’t already have one, start a dream/vision journal to help you keep track of your messages.
Fire Elements – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius. WILLOW.
According to the Celts the Willow is associated with metaphysical and ritual practices and is also symbolic with thriving and growing no matter what the environment might bring. The next 3 months will be bringing with them many opportunities to spend time furthering your Great Work through ritual and shadow work. Consider trying new approaches to your magickal works during this time and spread your wings a bit.
Water Elements – Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces. ASH.
The Ash is symbolic of resurrection and renewal, how fitting for the summer season. This is the time when most of us plan our vacations so that we can recharge and renew ourselves. Consider doing a purification and rededication to your Patron or Matron during this time. If you don’t have one yet, simply renew your dedication to your path.
However, you choose to spend the warm months, may it bring you much happiness and opportunities to get to know yourself better.
