Spirit Dancing

Have you ever wondered what your soul looks like... or rather what its energetic imprint is like? Some souls have more of a sound to them, while others are full of movement or colour. Of course, none of the ways we experience sound, movement or colour with our ordinary senses apply here.

I can't stop thinking about this dying man who saw my soul a couple of weeks ago... I knew it was my soul he saw because all he said to me was 'It's as if you're dancing' - Very similar to the words my mother used about my incoming soul when she was expecting me. She said, 'I could see you dancing your way into my soul.'

I hope the old man is at peace and enjoying his reunion with the ancestors now. 
I love being with people who are in the borderlands between life and death. It's so far away from this illusion we call reality. It's always peaceful there and the sense of homecoming is so very heartwarming.
Though I cannot see or perceive my own soul, the words of these two people act as a 'mirror' and what they perceived resonates. One of these people knew me intimately and the other I only met briefly, right before he died... 
Their words are precious because they help me understand why I have such a strong need for music in my life.Their reminded me of the realm I come from and that I will return to one day. They remind me of the out-of-body experience I had as a five-year-old, where I got to go home briefly, to a world filled with celestial music, and of the dream I had of dancing with dolphins - a dream that pretty much saved my life at one of the low points of this incarnation.
When I do my email readings, I often put music on and begin spirit dancing in that synergy between the other person's soul energy and the messages that are wanting to come through for them.
About the kind of music I like, I have always said, 'Any - As long as I can dance to it!'
Interestingly, in the Tarot,  my personality card is The World - a dancer who has learned to transcend duality. She holds a wand in each hand, transmuting all darkness and dischord into light and harmony.
Sometimes, I wonder what the dances of my Sámi and Norse ancestors looked like, before the Christian missionaries burned the drums and labelled dancing as sinful. There would have been dances to the Sun and to the Wind. There would have been Bear and Reindeer dances. There would have been dances to celebrate births and deaths... 
The Christian missionaries stole much more than cultural identity from my ancestors; they stole the joy of living and the strength that comes from connecting with the Elements through music and dance. 
I'm taking it all back now and today I will beat on my drum until I remember what was lost.

Do White People Have a Right to Reclaim their Ancestral and Tribal Roots?

Today, I'm blogging a response to an article on Medium because I stumbled on this article right after my daily Oracle post (which was very much about reclaiming ancestral roots), and felt deeply moved to rebutt the notion that white people have no right to reclaim their ancestry or tribal roots.

The author of the original article makes a lot of very strong statements, lumping all 'white people' together:

"White people already have a bunch of ancestry. We’ve recorded it for centuries. Other peoples are not so fortunate because white supremacists ensured that they would not have family history through slavery or genocide.
So all that you’re doing by 'reclaiming ancestry' is defining something that can be used to discriminate against others, NOT of your ancestry, and put us all into categories.
I say, drop the idea RIGHT NOW, that anyone is 'reclaiming' anything. You are already white."
The article is quite obviously written by an American becaus…

March 2020 Forecasts Pick-a-Pile Rune & Tarot Readings

Happy Odin's day, my friends. I thought I'd get the March pick-a-pile rune and Tarot readings out to you a couple of days early this time.For this month's readings we are working with Legend - The Arthurian Tarot (affiliate link) and the set of runes I made a couple of weeks ago.

Mercury is still retrograde at the start of the month. For guidance on the current retrograde and a bespoke Tarot spread, chek out this post. Mercury stations direct on the 4th of March.

Mars is a big player this month, conjuncting the current stellium of planets in Capricorn and re-energising issues we dealt with back in January, some of which we will be forced to revisit - hopefully with a better outcome this time!

The March Super Full Moon in Virgo happens on 9 March at 17:37 GMT. If you feel you need more info on this lunation, I recommend this video by Pam Gregory.

The spring/autumn equinox falls on Thursday, March 19.

The New Moon in Aries happens on Tuesday, 24 March,at 09:28.

February Forecasts Pick-a-Pile Rune, Tarot and Oracle Readings

Hello my friends, I hope you are well and looking forward to all that February will bring. I think we can all safely say that we are glad to see the back of January that lasted forever and seemed to bring very little but bad news and ends with the UK divorcing the EU + concomitant threats of continued austerity. This morning I came across a relatable tweet where someone said:

"I have come to the end of my free one month subscription for 2020 and would like to cancel the subscription."

Okay, so January was tough for many of us both individually and on a global level but quitting is not an option.

Resisting the bad just makes it last longer, both in the subjective (time is relative) and the objective sense. Time to shift gears and begin to look forward to spring and what we can actually DO to make this world a bit better...

The February Full Moon in Leo happens on 9 Feb at 07:33 GMT. For astrological forecasts for your respective Sun and Rising signs, I recommend Nightlight As…
