We are still under the influence of the Summer Solstice (which happened 2 days ago) and in the Runic month of Dagaz. We are now experiencing the 2nd phase of our alchemical Calcination (the 1st phase happened during Othila, see my Full Moon post on the topic): after examining and redefining our self, our set of values and our connection to our Ancestors, we are now ready to be reborn from our own ashes (best compost ever!). This “Phoenix phase” is what Dagaz is about.
A veil has been lifted and we are now experiencing a new, refreshed perspective on our self and on our life.
Dagaz combined with The Navigator indicates that we are now ready to take matters into our own hands and therefore the lead in our life. We have redefined who we are (during Othila) as well as the direction we wish to move toward with our life. With this new self comes a sense of confidence based both on skills and experience(s). We are not at the mercy of the Winds of Fate anymore (at least not completely). We know how to read and understand the signs that are leading us where we need to go. We speak the language of the mind aligned with the heart, and we are able to navigate and play around systems, rules, and norms in a way that suits us and our personal goal(s). Time to be bold and daring with this (re)new(ed) vision!
Dagaz is also combined with The Fledgling, who is here to rekindle our sense of adventure. This card gives us wings, literally. Its uplifting energy is here to help us reconnect with our inner child, our sense of curiosity and our enthusiasm. Ask yourself what is it that makes you happy? What makes your heart and your soul sing? What are you looking forward to? Once again, be daring! Don’t be afraid to take chances even if the little voices in your mind say that it is foolish…You might find yourself rewarded with unexpected, yet beneficial results. Your new, redefined self doesn’t need anybody’s approval…So just be! Who cares if your choices don’t fit social norms, expectations or traditions…You can create your own. They will come from the heart and will have a real meaning because they will be true to you. Be like a child: trust and take chances! “Your gift is a fresh start. Your resources are boundless.” (from The Slow Holler Tarot). So, enjoy the ride!
