The Archer, from the Wildwood Tarot. Its place on the Wheel of the Year is the Spring Equinox (March 21). Element is Air, creativity and new ideas, inspiration. It looks as if she and her faithful hunting dogs just came out of the mist behind them, as if they’d used it for a shield while stalking game. The bow and arrow is one of the earliest weapons man devised, making it a powerful connection to our past. The Archer has something in her sights, and is taking careful aim. The hounds stand ready to help her run down her quarry. This is a time to go after what you want. Use all the tools at your disposal, nock your arrow filled with intention, and fire it with the bow that is your Will. According to the book, the ancient Celts wrote spells on their arrows. You could write your intentions on a piece of paper, and then burn it, letting the smoke rise up through the air the way the arrow of intent flies through the air.
I got an idea for a story I’ve been working on (not the vampire novel). I think I’ll run with it and see where it goes.
