The Ancestor (normally The Hierophant) from the Wildwood Tarot. Each card in this deck is associated with a time of year, a place on the Wheel, and the Ancestor stands at Imbolc, February 1. It signifies a shift, a new path, new experiences (a departure from the rigid rule of authority and doctrine that normally signifies the Hierophant). The Ancestor speaks to us at a primeval level, of our own instincts to follow nature, our connection to the green world. This is something that’s largely lost in our modern world of high tech gadgets and gizmos, and cities crammed with people and skyscrapers. This card tells us to listen to our inner voice, heed our natural calling to go in search of the wild and nurture our spirits. If you’re feeling the need to connect with the ancients, maybe now is a good time to take a walk in the woods, get away from civilization for a bit and let your spirit breathe.
If you’re interested in acquiring this deck, there are some available on Amazon through various resellers, and they had a post on Facebook that they were getting more in their own shop at http://thewildwoodtarot.com. I was going to put up an Amazon link, but I don’t know any of the resellers who are offering it so will not recommend one over others.
