Eight of Fire: Wands

The Eight of Fire energies manifest in Ginger.

Ginger

Inspiration comes from all directions. Can you handle so many things at once? Like the busy stove in this kitchen, everything begs for your attention.

Change is happening quickly. Swift action is needed or you may become overwhelmed. Ginger warms the body and fires up energy.

When creative possibilities spin all about you, fast, focused movement is key.

This is not the time to pause and consider but instead to respond with urgency. Ginger is a spicy medicine, but you can handle the heat.

Crafting With the Eight of Fire

The Eights feature plants whose roots are used as medicine. Drawing deep into the earth, they accumulate rich nutrients. They can be difficult to grow; like the trees, the must establish themselves for several years before they can be sustainably harvested. The roots are collected in the fall when it is cold and wet. We must work to gain access to their medicine.

The final mini-drama presents an internal challenge. The herbcrafter has accepted her higher calling from the trees but. now questions her ability to fulfill her destiny. The herbs of the Eights pull her into a deeper inquiry as she confronts her relationship to her own nature. She will be faced with speaking her truth, trusting her instincts, walking away and restoring her self-worth. her weaknesses become allies that, as she gets to the root of each one, ground and strengthens her for the challenges ahead. The Eights spark action that lead to true self-awareness.

Craft

  • Build your resilience and adapt to unexpected change: use spicy ginger in cooking.
  • Make ginger elixir; take it to keep the flames of inspiration burning.
  • Speed up a desired outcome by crafting a magic ginger honey pot.

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.
