Ace of Air

Ace of Air Energy Manifestations: Don’t fence me in. Discernment is necessary for survival. Know your wounds; identify your medicine.

Ace of Air: Swords

Yarrow

Yarrow is the embodiment of The Ace of Air.

The first seeds of a new idea can be found just outside your front door. Take a fresh look at an ancient calling from Spirit. Though it is a common weed, yarrow often goes unnoticed; inspiration is close, yet you may have overlooked it as ordinary or not valuable enough.

Use discernment and reasoning to see clearly.

It is important to positively identify yarrow because lookalikes can be deadly. Set feelings aside and follow the truth. Start with what you already know. Seek vision from your ancestors

Crafting With the Ace of Air

The Ace cards feature herbs most of us know as weeds. Found easily in nature, they are not usually cultivated intentionally but eradicated. They are the ancient medicine with a long history of use and will often be the first plants we meet as beginning herbalists.

They are referred to as “dooryard herbs” because they are found right at our doorsteps. They are the gateways into the world of herbcraft.

In the first mindrama (Ace – 2 – 3), you are a beginner on your path. The herbs of the Aces initiate the berbcrafter into the world of plant medicine. Meeting these plants, she becomes excited, hopeful and filled with possibility. Her experience triggers a somatic remembering of ancient way and invites a deeper knowing. The Aces, like the acorn, contain the stories of the ancestors as well as the promise of the future. The herbs of the Aces inspire a fresh view toward your calling.

Crafts
  • The Latin name for yarrow comes from the myth of Achilles. Read his birth story, then journal the question: What is my Achilles’ heel? How is it keeping me from my destiny?
  • Cultivate discernment by learning to identify yarrow and its lookalikes.
  • Craft a powder of dried yarrow leaves to stop bleeding. Use it in magical practice to heal wounds that cut to the bone.

Mini Meditation

Meditation

Get into a relaxing position and close your eyes, make sure you are a comfortable temperature and not likely to be interrupted.

  • Take three deep breaths
  • Feel your tension melting away.

Imagine yourself doing one of the crafts mentioned above. Use your imagination. Make it as elaborate or as simple as you like. Have whomever you would like to be there come and share the time with you.

Imagine what it would look and feel like, as if it were really happening. Use your five senses and imagine all the sensory details as though you are really there.

Be creative and indulge in this moment.

Spend as long as you like in this visualization and feel the benefits of crafting with nature. Think about your meditation as often as you like as you go through your day. If possible, create it in reality.

Her approach is driven by a playful, wild spirit.

She recognizes herself as part of nature. She seeks reciprocity in all things. Through the relationship with the botanical world, she learns how plants and people can be of service to one another.
