Ace of Fire: Wands

Mullein

Mullein is the embodiment of The Ace of Fire.

Creative inspiration is bubbling to the surface. Pursue an ancient calling from Spirit. Take action to magnify your magic; it is closer than you think. Mullein is an easy to find yet often overlooked medicine weed.

You already possess the power you need, but you may not recognize it in yourself.

Like mullein, inner strength and outer softness move you in an upward direction.

Dried mullein stalks are dipped in wax to create torches; follow the spark that unleashes your creativity. Allow your deepest desires to find expression. Seek courage from your ancestors.

Crafting With the Ace of Fire

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
  • Craft magical mullein oil; add spicy essential oils like ginger or cinnamon. Apply it to creativity tools like paintbrushes, pencils or dancing shoes to ignite creativity.
  • Create a witch’s torch by dipping dried mullein stalks in wax. Summon your power during a dark moon.
  • Rub a drop of mullein oil behind your ears to hear the voices of your ancestors.

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.

The Herbcrafter

Herbcrafter

An herbcrafter is an afficianada of the botanical realm. She is in love with plants and longs to know them more deeply.

Her approach is driven by a playful, wild spirit.

The herbcrafter embraces the plant world as her teacher and friend through observation and botany, gardening and wildcrafting, medicine and kitchen craft, fiber arts and weaving, art and magic.

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.

Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.
